With a brand new season of Factions Onyx comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:
We will be adding our own custom mining system along with a public mining world available with /warp mining!
This new mining warp will work in a similar way to how /warp forest works, where once you break a block with your pickaxe, the block will regenerate thus allowing you to mine for as long as you want. While you're mining, there will be a chance for the block to be converted into stone, or a more valuable and rarer ore just as iron, gold, diamond or emerald.
Alongside this, we are adding the new Miner's Pickaxe to the Power Shop /pshop. This pickaxe has 3 tiers which provide the following abilities:
- Items automatically go to your inventory
- Increased mcMMO mining EXP received
- Blocks are sold periodically
We hope that this will encourage players to use mining as a new economy option on Onyx.
Last but not least, here are a number of miscellaneous changes:
- We will be decreasing the faction sizes to 5.
- As a result, we will be increasing the power per player to 900.
- This map of Onyx will be a Mining alongside Silverfish (Mycelium) economy with Sugarcane, Fishing and Woodcutting as alternative ECO options.
- We will be increasing the radius of Sandies to 15 blocks.
- When players try to mine a spawner without a silk touch pickaxe or without the necessary rank, they will be told they are unable to break the spawner on the first attempt at mining it.
- We will be creating a TNT Bank Faction Mission which will be like a normal Faction Mission however it will increase the TNT Bank size to 50,000,000. If the faction is raided (it is considered raided if you lose at least 10% of your P Top Value or TNT is shot into your spawner chunk if you have no value up) then the Faction Mission will be lost and reverted to the tier below. Your faction's TNT Bank will be reduced in size and any excess TNT given to the raiding faction if they have space. If they run out of space, the excess will be deleted from the server. You will then be able to redo this Faction Mission again if you would like to regain the TNT Bank size.
- When you attempt to overclaim a spawner chunk, it can only be overclaimed after the server removes it as a spawner chunk, so that it can be claimed as a normal claim. If it is not possible to be removed as a spawner chunk (if there are spawners in the chunk), it will disconnect the faction's spawner chunks. If it is the last spawnerchunk for the faction, then the spawner chunk will not be modified at all nor will it be possible to overclaim.
- We will be adding to our roster system the ability to give a player the rank “Leader”. Only the person who is Leader of the faction at the time will be able to give and take this rank. When they join the faction, they will still be given the co-leader rank; however, if the leader of the faction is offline and there is a person with the Roster Leader Rank online, they will be automatically assigned the leader of the faction.
Note: If there is more than one person online and in the faction with the Roster Leader Rank, then it will be randomly assigned to one of the players.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset! Make sure that you keep updated with the rules and store changes as we progress through this season.
