Custom Terrain

The custom terrain is just stunning, take a look for yourselves!

New Content

Duel Changes

The /duel plugin has had a revamp including a nice new menu and more settings! Players will now be able to participate in 2v2 & 2v1 duels if the map you fight on can hold more than 2 players. The soup bowls being empty or full indicate whether you've completed that part of the duel setup.

Create your own custom kit to duel someone with or use one of the new premade kits. Choose what type of armor, weapons, food and potions you want to use in your kit. You can create and save up to 4 custom kits.

Customize what enchantments you want on your armor and weapons.

Create a public or private duel. If your duel is public, then players will be allowed to spectate with /duel spectate [IGN] as well as the duel results being broadcast in chat for all players to see. You can turn off duel broadcasts in the duel setup menu.

Auction House

Bidding Slot

The brand new Bidding Slot is now available on the auction house, accessible by doing /ah in game.

Players can bid to own the slot, where they'll be able to list an item that they wish to sell.

Image from Gyazo

To claim ownership over the slot, players have until the previous owner's slot expires or a minute to bid for the slot. After time's up, the player with the highest bid claims ownership!

Only 1 player can own this slot at a time, and whoever owns the slot gets an auction listing that appears in the main auction house menu and can be bid on by other players.

This biddable slot means players can get more money for the items they are selling if people are competing for it. While there is a bid running, players will still be able to bid on whoever gets the next auction slot.

You'll now be able to search for items in the auction house with ease! Players can do the /ah search (item name) command in chat or simply click the compass in the top right of the auction house menu.

After doing the command, a menu will come up with the items relating to your search.

Request Items

Players can now request items that they wish to buy in the Auction House. To begin creating requests, do /ah as normal. Click on Request Items at the middle-bottom and it will take you to the Requests menu.

Click the beacon in the bottom-right to begin looking for items that you want to request. Scroll through each of the the categories by shift-clicking the doors to find the items that you need.

There is a special custom items section in the menu which is a bit bare at the moment, but we'll be adding more items to the list over time (we've got quite a lot of custom items!) so please bare with us.

Image from Gyazo

Find the item you want to request and click on it. This will take you to a menu where you can decide to add more items to your request list or finish creating the request.

Image from Gyazo

After creating the request, you'll be asked to type in chat how much you're willing to pay for the item(s) you're requesting. Type in your desired amount and you'll be able to see your requests in the menu. If you're unhappy with the request, you can always cancel it.

If you're looking to fulfill someone's Auction Request, then you can click on their item in the requests category.

Image from Gyazo

Once you've offered the item that the player has requested, you'll be given the money that they offered to pay out. The player who requested the item will then be able to collect it from the requests category.

Death Bans

We will be adding Death Bans to Onyx. If you die in the Arena, Outpost, Mycelium or Boss World then you will receive a 10-15 minute Death Ban depending on your rank. During this time, you will be unable to log onto Onyx on the account or any account on the same IP.

Along with the addition of Death Bans, we will also be adding in Lives! Those with ranks will obtain free lives every map however everyone will be able to buy lives on the Store! The top rank will receive 8 Free lives a map and every lower rank receiving 1 less life.

End of the World Event

Introducing our new EOTW event! When the map is about to end, a 5 minute countdown will begin in which everyone will be able to enter the event and players will be teleported to the main world. Slowly the world border will shrink forcing players closer together, thus making them PvP. The last remaining player alive will receive a Monthly Kit, Monthly Tag & keys, 2nd place will receive 2 Special Keys & third place 1 Special Key to use for the next Onyx map.

Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset!
