New Spawn

With a new season comes a new spawn! Check out the awesome new design below:

Raiding Outpost

Introducing the Raiding Outpost! Factions can raid and defend the Raiding Outpost base to gain some awesome rewards.

The Raiding Outpost will be enabled after the first Raid Event takes place on Tuesday, and the winner of the Raid Event will be given the Raiding Outpost to defend. The Raiding Outpost will be available for the entirety of the map after Tuesday, except for 30 minutes leading up to and during a Raid Event, where players will be teleported out. The winner of each Raid Event will then initially be given the Raiding Outpost to defend.

Once a Raid Event ends, everyone will have access to teleport to a random unclaimed location in the Raiding Outpost world, but the faction who has it captured and will be defending it, will be able to teleport to the top of the base.

The faction who has captured the Raiding Outpost will be able to defend the base by having permissions to build and break in the Raiding Outpost base area. Enemy factions will be able to build cannon boxes around the Raiding Outpost base area and can attempt to raid the base, all while the defending faction can build counter cannons to stop them.

The Faction Lockdown and Faction Spectating systems will be used to ensure that only 1 faction can raid the base at once.

When a faction breaches the Raiding Outpost base, they will have captured it. When this happens, the entire world and claims will be reset and everyone will be teleported out. Along with this, to ensure the Raiding Outpost world doesn’t get too crowded with claims and cannon boxes, the world and claims will reset every 6 hours after the Raid Event.

When holding the Raiding Outpost you will receive the following rewards:

  • All the time - 2x TNT Drops. This will stack with normal spawner boosters and the Outpost Spawner Booster
  • Every Hour - $10,000,000
  • Every 8 Hours - 3 Protection 6 Unbreaking 6 God Sets

When the Raiding Outpost world is closed, no faction will be considered as capturing the Raiding Outpost therefore all rewards will stop being issued for that duration.

You'll be able to find out everything you need to know about the Raiding Outpost using the /f RaidingOutpost or /f ro commands, including an explanation of the event and an area to claim rewards if you have any. A Faction permission will also be created for claiming rewards for your faction.

You will be able to set homes in your land and the wilderness like usual, however as expected, if an enemy faction claims land where your home is set, then you will no longer be able to use that home. As well as this. you’ll be able to set Faction Warps like normal however if the claim is automatically removed then the Faction Warp will be deleted. If you log out in an area that is then claimed by other faction, then you'll be sent to spawn.

The faction that is holding the Raiding Outpost will not be able to set F warps or homes on top of the base. Additionally, if a member of the defending faction logs out and the Raiding Outpost is captured by a different faction, then they'll be sent to spawn.

Additional Content

  • We will be adding /stopwatch or /timer, which allows you to start a timer. A message will pop up every 10 seconds in chat telling you what time the timer is on. You’ll be able to stop the timer using the same command.
  • We will be making Harvester Hoes unbreakable to ensure players don’t accidentally lose them.
  • All Boosters including Spawner Boosters and Essence Boosters will be able to be stacked so you’re able to trigger a booster without having to wait for the current one to finish.
  • The chunk buffer for bases on Onyx has been decreased from 25 chunks to 20 chunks on our rules page.
  • Due to the change in the chunk buffer for bases, we will be modifying Lockdown to trigger when TNT is shot within 19 chunks of a spawner chunk.

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