Raiding Rule Updates
We've made a number of raiding rule changes for this season of Ruby that can be found on our Rule Page.
- We will be disallowing "360" buffer counter cannons. (Please make a ticket if you need more information on what this is)
- We will be allowing Left Shooting on bases only.
- We are limiting the number of blocks allowed to be broken above the TNT shot when using overstackers.
- The size of a cannon box will be limited to at least 30 blocks in height (on the inside).
This map of Ruby will be a Cactus Economy alongside Silverfish (Mycelium). This means that the following prices and features have been updated:
- Cactus sell price will be $0.5.
- There will be a limit of 64 Cactus Chests, meaning you can have a limit of 1600 chunks of Cactus.
- You'll be required to buy the Cactus Chests from /shop to collect Cactus in a 5x5 chunk area like usual.
- To ensure Cactus is not used after grace, Cactus Chests will stop collecting cactus when Grace is over like usual.
- Sugarcane will be reduced from $10 to $8.
- The price of fish will be nerfed slightly however will still be an alternative economy source like Woodcutting.
- Netherstars will be reduced from $4000 to $3000.
- /F missions will be changed where appropriate.
- Each player will receive 450 faction power instead of 400 faction power.
For this map of Ruby, we will be trialing the idea of having players not constantly wall-check, as this takes up a lot of time for hours on end when you could be doing other activities on the server.
/f notifchunks (Lockdown Notify) will trigger 30 seconds after a faction obtains Lockdown on your faction (around 2 chunks into your base) alerting you to the raid.
- Warlocks will no longer give a passive regeneration effect and the Wither effect or the slowness effect from Warlocks will no longer put you in combat.
- You will be able to place Redstone and similar items in combat but you won't be able to place levers in combat.
- We will be changing all of the main 6 worlds to the default Overworld type to fix bugs with MiniMap mods along with allowing players to be able to use a wider range of shader packs.
- We will be changing our /FPS system so that by default TNT will be merged - and when TNT is disabled in /FPS, it will completely remove all TNT from appearing.
- Raiding Outpost will be buffed significantly during grace, however you will receive less OP rewards after TNT is enabled.
- The Mycelium Citadel will provide a 2x Spawner Booster to the faction with it captured along with the current rewards.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the reset!
