CHANGELOG

Introducing progressive F TOP
To prevent Factions from mining their spawners and placing the day before a payout, we've introduced a brand new system: 'progressive F top'. This means that when a spawner is placed it now takes 3.5 days (84 hours) to become its full value (its purchase price on /shop) on the factions top list. As of now when a spawner is placed it will be worth 10% of its full value. For every 12 consecutive hours that a spawner is placed for, it will gain an additional 10% of its full value until it reaches its full value. If a spawner is blown up or mined, this will reset and the spawner will be worth 10% of its full value once it is placed again regardless of how long it has been placed prior to being destroyed.


Cane & cactus economy

There are lots of different opinions regarding cane or cactus economy. Because of this, we've decided to allow both but with a limitation on the number of "cactus hoppers" that can be placed: every faction will be able to place a total of 125 Cactus Hoppers. Attempting to bypass this in any way will result in the offending faction receiving a faction warning, them having their cactus farms removed, and possibly having faction top value deducted depending on the severity of their infraction.

Please note that cactus will be FULLY disabled after the 5 day grace period.


Cactus sell price = $1.30
Sugarcane sell price = $15


Added fortified chunks
This is a brand new patch that will completely change cannoning. Since cannons have been getting faster it has got increasingly harder to find a way to make it fair for both raiders and defenders. To try and resolve this, there will now be a cooldown every time you fire into a new chunk with a cannon (2 Seconds) {This number could change}.

Added obsidian breaker
This will allow you to instantly break obsidian. This new feature will be available from the in-game token shop and our webstore.

Now you will need to confirm some commands to execute them.

Added vote
You can now vote the server on Minecraft server lists to earn rewards in-game. Use the command '/vote' in-game for a list of links to voting sites.


Added math minigame
This will allow you to answer addition questions in-game to receive cash rewards. Simply answer a question by saying the answer in chat.



Added factions queue

This will put all users attempting to connect to factions onto a queue to ensure that everyone gets onto the server in the order that they attempt to connect.

Reboot update

As of now, every time that the server restarts, everyone will be sent to the hub instead of being disconnected to the server list.
(won't disconnect you from the server any more)


Updated chunk busters

Chunk busters are now faster and you can mine more than 1 chunk.

Reintroduced & revamped Outpost

  • We've now made it so that all online members in the faction controlling the outpost will receive double XP. All members that are online in the faction controlling the outpost will receive $3000 for every minute that their faction controls the outpost.

  • Sell wands will now work with the outpost sell boosts.

  • There are also 2 faction upgrades available. You can upgrade the GUI sell price and voidchest sell price by a multiplier value that increases as you purchase more upgrades.
