New Spawn

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

Additional Content

  • The chunk buffer for bases on Onyx has been increased from 20 chunks to 25 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 24 chunks of a spawner chunk.
  • We have allowed your entire buffer to be a source block ocean with some limitations as stated on our rules page.
  • We have modified many of our custom enchants to make them all worth using to add variety in custom enchant usage. We have modified the following enchants: AntiTank, DeathGrip, Haste, HeadShot, Hercules, Indestructible, Infected, Leaps, Rampage, Reborn, Scoot, Shield, Tank, Thunderous & Trapped.
  • We have modified the handling of explosions within our server JAR to be able to allow cannons to create 5 wide holes without any known unintended consequence.
  • /f worth (Faction) will now show more detail. This includes the factions F Top Value, Potential Top Value & their specific spawner counts.
  • We will be adding /f tptoggle which will only allow players in your faction to send you teleportation requests.
  • When a switcherball is used, both players will now be put into combat & messaged in chat.
  • When hovering over claims in /f map, the name of the faction with the claim will now also show up along with the click to unclaim feature.
  • You will now be able to more easily deposit & withdraw money with the /f money d all and /f money w all commands. As well as this, you can now deposit or withdraw large amounts of money quickly with /f money d 40m and /f money w 1b.
  • We will be adding a new statistic to /stats which will show the amount of genbuckets placed.
  • We will be adding /f lockdown (Faction) which will allow you to see whether the faction is in Phase 2 of Lockdown and if so, which faction is raiding them and how long of the raid is remaining. No information will be displayed if the raid is in Phase 1 of Lockdown or the faction is not being raided.
  • We will be making it easier to define an area with Sandy, Mandy & Candy by removing the option to define an area block by block. Instead of this, you will be able to define 2 blocks and any air, sand or red sand block between the 2 blocks will be defined as a block to be printed on. The 2 defined blocks must still be within 10 blocks of Sandy, Mandy & Candy and there cannot be more than 64 total defined blocks. This will also be explained in the menu.

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