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 amount of Boss, Ultra and KoTH keys will be buffed.
- The timings in /grace will be modified to fit the new schedule.
- Scheduled times for Raid Events and prizes will be changed.
- The prizes for the FvF Event and Raiding Outpost will also 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 amount of TNT dropped by Creepers will be decreased to an average of 2.5 (previously 1.5) drops per Creeper. The difference in % for the TNT to drop between Grace and Raiding will remain.
- Emerald, Blaze Rods, Gold Ingots and Iron Ingots will all sell for 1.67x their current sell price.
- The requirements to obtain a maxed Harvester Hoe will be decreased slightly.
- The overall economy will be buffed which is explained in further detail later in the release post.
- We will be nerfing the amount of damage done by players due to the decreased faction size.
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 Cactus alongside Mycelium (Silverfish) economy with a maximum of 600 chunks of Cactus. Fishing, Mining and Sugarcane will be alternative economy options.
- Sugarcane's sell price will be $18.
- Netherstars' sell price will be $8000.
- The price to sell fish will be changed to match Sugarcane in the Safe Lake.
- Wood Logs will sell for $350. 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 10.
- The amount of money the holder of the Faction Outpost will make every 30 minutes will be $75,000,000 during Grace and $35,000,000 during raiding.
Last but not least, here are a number of miscellaneous changes:
- The Faction Roster Size will be 20 and there will be 1 kick given each day with a maximum of 2 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.
- We will be decreasing the faction sizes to 10, and as a result, we will be increasing the power per player to 500.
- Shield length has been increased to 16 hours.
- You will not be allowed a 1 chunk source block ocean per side of your base as shown on our rule page.
- You will not be allowed to left and right shoot at all as shown on our rule page.
- We will be decreasing the number of bans resulting in a strike to 3 as shown on our rule page.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Ruby reset!
