With a new season comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:
We will be adding our own custom mining system along with a public mining world available with /warp mining!
This new mining warp will work in a similar way to how /warp forest works, where once you break a block with your pickaxe, the block will regenerate thus allowing you to mine for as long as you want. While you're mining, there will be a chance for the block to be converted into stone, or a more valuable and rarer ore just as iron, gold, diamond or emerald.
Alongside this, we are adding the new Miner's Pickaxe to the Power Shop /pshop. This pickaxe has 3 tiers which provide the following abilities:
- Items automatically go to your inventory
- Increased mcMMO mining EXP received
- Blocks are sold periodically
We hope that this will encourage players to use mining as a new economy option on Ruby.
Free For All
A rotating cycle of maps has been added for FFAs, meaning that every time there is a FFA event, there will be a different map to the one before. This keeps it more exciting for players who take part in this event, as you won't have the same map over and over again.
As well as this, there will be a rotating cycle of kits that are used in the FFA events, which also spices up the event! Some examples of kits are:
- Diamond OCN
- Build UHC
- and more!
The Arcade is a super fun, competitive, multiplayer minigames hub! Team up with your friends or go up against opponents in the new minigames to receive rewards.
You will need to vote or have a rank in order to access The Arcade. Along with the minigames available in this new area, you will be able to open a daily Arcade Crate for free! You can view the rewards available in the crate in-game.
There are 5 brand new minigames available in The Arcade with another one coming soon! Take a look at what you can expect from 3 of them below. To find out what the other minigames are, you'll need to see them in-game for yourself when the new season begins!
- Horse Racing
Place your money on which horse you think will win the race! In this awesome new game, you can actually see the horses riding down the track in real time, all racing each other to the finish line.
As an added bonus, the player who has received the most money from Horse Racing at the end of the season, will get their very own horse named after them in the game the following season! You will be able to place money and race this special horse like any of the normal horses.
- Mob Battles
Ever wondered what would happen if a Silverfish fought a Wither? Here's your chance to find out in the new minigame Mob Battles! In each round, 2 new mobs will spawn, ready to fight. Players will be able to place money on which fighter they think will win the epic battle. The winner is a 50/50 chance, so it doesn't matter how big or small the mob is, anyone can win!
- Bow Boost Battles
Show off your Bow-boosting skills and race solo against an opponent, or boost along with a friend in the duo mode in the new Bow Boost Battles game!
Lastly, separate to The Arcade, we will be adding the familiar Slots minigame to Factions! You will be able to compete against the server for a chance to win money using the command /slots.
