Survival Content Update: May 2022
Hello everyone! The Survival Realm recently reset for a new season and we're excited to show you some new features for this month's content update. As of today, you can look forward to seeing the following new features - Vote Parties, the Furniture Starter Kit, and the Structure Remover.
Introducing Vote Parties! Every time you /vote, it contributes to the realm goal of 125 votes, and when this number is reached, everyone currently on the realm will receive a reward! To view the current vote count, do the command /voteparty.
Rewards that you can receive from each Vote Party vary per event. The majority of the players online when the vote count is reached will receive average drops, with a few lucky players receiving rare drops! You could be in the chance of winning Rare, Legendary, and Rare Crate Keys, so be sure to vote.
Furniture Starter Kit
Claim your very own piece of FREE furniture with the new Furniture Starter kit! Start off your homely collection of furniture with 1 free item, on the house! Every Survival player can choose 1 piece of furniture from a select list by visiting the NPC found at spawn or using the command /claimfurniture.
This season, we added a whole bunch of new furniture that you can purchase from the Gem Shop NPC at spawn using Gems. These items are cosmetic only, and do not have any functional use:
- Kitchen Sink
- Desk Lamp
- Bathroom Sink
- Dining Table Light
- Dining Table Dark
- Gaming PC
- Office Desk
The Structure Remover
Ever selected the most perfect place to build your base, then realized that if you expanded, you'll end up running into a Custom Monument? Worry no more, with the new Structure Remover item!
With this item, you can remove the protection that Custom Monuments have, and when used you can break down the structure and expand your base. You must be standing in the structure before you can right-click and use the item. When it has been activated, the Custom Monument will no longer regenerate.
Find the Structure Remover in the /MobShop, or try your luck and win them from Epic Crate Keys. Be sure to use these items when you really need them, as you can only use 25 per season.
This massively requested item was made possible by suggestions from the community - so thank you for sending us your awesome ideas!
