Map Length Changes
There are a number of changes that have been made due to the map length now being 8 days. They are as follows:
- The timings in /grace will be modified to fit the new schedule.
- Scheduled times for Raid Events and prizes will be changed.
- We will be changing our spawner percentage system resulting in spawners gaining 10% of their maximum /F Top Value every 24 hours until it reaches 40%, where spawners will then gain 10% every 2 hours until it reaches 100%. This means it will take 4.5 days for your spawners to have their maximum /F Top Value.
The economy is a vital part of Factions, so be sure to read up on the best ways to make money during the next map on Ruby:
- We will be running a Sugarcane, Mining, Woodcutting, Fishing alongside Mycelium (Silverfish) economy.
- Sugarcane's sell price will be $38.
- Netherstars' sell price will be $15,000.
- The price to sell fish will be changed to match Sugarcane in the Safe Lake.
- Wood Logs will sell for $750. The buy price of Wood Logs have also been increased as a result.
- The amount of items dropped from mining an ore in the Mining world will be 30.
- The amount of money the holder of the Faction Outpost will make every 30 minutes will be $130,000,000 during Grace and $65,000,000 during raiding.
Last but not least, here are a number of miscellaneous changes:
- The Faction Roster Size will be 15 and there will be 1 kick given each day with a maximum of 1 at any time.
- Due to the above, we will be disallowing Account Sharing and therefore will be enabling our plugin to limit the number of IPs allowed on an account in 24 hours.
- We will be giving Faction Points to the players in the roster at the end of the map.
- Shield length has been increased to 18 hours.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset!
