- We will be keeping the Fishing area as it is in the Mycelium World, however we will be making changes across the entire Fishing economy including in /F missions, random rewards, prices of fish, and fishing involved challenges based on feedback that we have received from the community.
Faction Raid Claims
In the upcoming season of Factions Ruby, will be adding Faction Raid Claims!
You will be able to set a faction raid claim using /f raidclaim set [name] [password] - the password is optional. You'll be able to teleport to the raid claim using /f raidclaim warp [name] [password] or via clicking the warp in the menu when you do /f raidclaim warp(s) similar to /f warps.
You'll be teleported to where you created the F RaidClaim unless you reset the location of the warp using /f raidclaim setwarp [name] [password]. To unclaim the raid claim, you will need to do /f raidclaim delete [name]. This will remove all Raid Claim Chunks connected to this raid claim.
The Raid Claim will claim a 5 x 5 chunk area which will be your Raid Claim Chunks. These will appear slightly different in color similar to Spawnerchunks. Any land that is connected to, or becomes connected to the raid claim when a chunk is claimed normally, will also become Raid Claim Chunks. The maximum area that a single Raid Claim can be contained within is a 18 x 18 chunk square.
To reduce the size of your Raid Claim, you can unclaim them like you would usually do, however you will be prohibited from unclaiming all the Raid Claim Chunks. To ensure that you cannot unclaim all of the claims, you will not be allowed to remove the Raid Claim Chunk containing the warp to the raid claim. If you remove enough claims to disconnect some of them from the Raid Claim Chunk containing the warp to the raid claim, these claims will automatically be removed as a Raid Claim Chunk and will return to normal claims.
When TNT from an enemy faction is fired and explodes within a Raid Claim Chunk, Cannon Lockdown will be triggered lasting for 15 minutes. The raiding faction will receive a prompt when this occurs but the defending faction won't.
During this period, like Faction Lockdown, the defending faction will not be able to place gen buckets in any Raid Claim Chunk. If any other faction attempts to raid the same Raid Claim, they will be prompted to stop shooting.
When more TNT is fired into a Raid Claim Chunk, the timer will reset. Only after 15 minutes of no TNT being fired in a Raid Claim Chunk will the Cannon Lockdown end including a removal of restrictions on the defending faction. Both factions will receive a notification telling them this.
- A faction permission will exist for who can set, move the warp & unclaim raid claims.
- A faction permission will exist for who can teleport to these raid claims.
- A faction permission will exist for who can build in the 5 x 5 chunk area of the raid claims.
- Notification Chunks and /f lockdown [faction] and will not be features used in raid claims.
- /f raidclaim will provide details on all the commands regarding this feature.
- We have added a rule stating you cannot bypass the dispenser limit set server-side which includes information regarding when you use a double pulse on our rule page.
- The dispenser limit will be reduced to 3000.
- Stated you cannot have a source block ocean of any size or of any amount per side on our rules page.
- The Deity Key has been rebranded as the Ultra Key.
- The Deity Boss will still provide Ultra Keys to the attackers however you will also find the Ultra Key in other events and places across the realm.
- Along with this, the Ultra Key will receive some new items like God-Set armor pieces.
- /tpahere will be blocked if /f tptoggle is enabled. This also means that the faction perm for forcing /f tptoggle and the automatic enabling of /f tptoggle in /f notifchunks will also have this change made to them.
- We will be adding /tp all which will automatically accept all pending teleport requests to you and any future pending teleport requests to you for the next 10 seconds from players that are in your faction at the time.
- Like /potrefill we will be adding /obbyrefill for obsidian.
- When you do /roam, you will be taken back out of /f stealth after you exit /roam if you were not originally in it.
- When a strike is given in-game, it will be broadcasted to everyone on the entire server.
- A 5s cooldown will be added when teleporting using /ro.
- We will be adding custom armor durability. We will be specifically setting the durability for different levels of unbreaking allowing for us to improve PvP.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the reset!
