Hello, This Saturday at 4 PM EST, we will be launching a new game mode concept I have envisioned for quite some time, I think overall the concept and gameplay will be something that can be enjoyed by all kinds of players. I highly suggest you give it a go and let us know what you think of it. To get as much information as possible for this Saturday about this new game mode, just read all of this forum's post.

October 19th, 4 PM EST
Check here to see what time release is for you!

Tribes Top
In total, we will be having $340 in prizes. Here is the breakdown.
Each tribe will be required to set a PayPal using /t setpaypal <email>. This is used to automatically pay out the top tribes each week.
First Place - $150 PayPal
Second Place - $100 BuyCraft
Third Place - $50 BuyCraft
Fourth Place - $25 BuyCraft
Fifth Place - $15 BuyCraft

General Information
This realm is survival/ mid evil themed.
We will be having one world.

There will still be corners in the map in this gamemode, but they will serve no purpose. There will not be any sort of massive walled off bases. Gen buckets, will be disabled on this gamemode, and there will not be any sort of raiding. TNT will be permanently disabled. To create a tribe, you will need to do "/tribe create <name>". Once you have created your tribe you will need to claim land with "/tribe claim <var> <amount>".

Overworld: 20,000 x 20,000 border

Tribes Information
All of the important information required for this map are listed below:

10 Man Tribes
Create a Tribe with /T
Farms & Spawners & Blocks

Player Shops:
In our brand new Survival realm and Tribes gamemode, every player will be able to create their own individual player shops! These shops must be on their own tribe land. Players will be able to sell whatever items they want to other players, for whatever price they want! This also means you should try looking through other players' shops to find the best value for an item you are trying to buy!

Player Warps:
Every player will be able to set their own warps for other players to come visit whenever they want! Use these warps to show off your unique creations, draw players into your shop, and more! When warping to someone's area, you will be completely safe from dying, as all warps must be set on tribe land.

Pickaxe Enchantments:
Since part of our economy will focus on mining, we will be adding different things to help players with their mining efforts. There will be a select series of enchantments which will be able to be applied to their pickaxes to enhance them! Pickaxe enchantments will be able to be obtained through our enchanter system for gems. To access the enchanter all you will need to do is /enchanter.

Upon first spawn into the map, you will be given blockgens! Blockgens will be able to be placed down in your own tribe land. These will be able to be mined repeatedly, and the block will regenerate each time, you will also get gems when you mine these. To pick up your block gen, all you will need to do is shift and break it. Upgrading your block gens will be found in our tribe upgrade system. You will be able to upgrade the block that your block gen spawns.

General Enchanting:
Enchantments on tribes will be kept pretty simple. The maximum protection will be 4, and the maximum sharpness will be 5. There will also be a few general custom enchantments to go alongside the pickaxe enchantments. All of these enchantments will be able to be found in the /enchanter system.

Tribe Value System:
Their will be plenty of ways for every player to earn value for their tribe! Players will be able to earn value from different valuable blocks, spawners, and more. This value will be completely safe from being raided, unless your tribe goes under and someone is able to overclaim you! All value information will be able to be seen on "/tribe top".

Tribe Upgrades:
We will be including Tribe Upgrade system in our Survival game mode! There will be a few different upgrades you will be able to purchase to benefit your tribe greatly! You will be able to purchase upgrades such as: more members for your tribe, more land to claim, what kind of block your tribes blockgens are, etc. These upgrades will be purchasable using "gems".

There will be a diverse economy for our tribes server! It will be primarily revolved around different mob spawners, valuable blocks like diamond blocks, farming and one alternative currency "gems". This will allow for players to have a wide choice with what they would like to focus on with their tribe.

No Raiding & Protective Claims:
There will be absolutely no raiding on our tribes gamemode. This means that you will not need to build big bases with a ton of walls! TNT explosions will be disabled, as well as gen buckets, sand bots, blast tools, and more. Adding onto the no raiding bit, there will also not be any combat in tribe claims. You can roam around your claims without any worry of people coming to kill you!

Wilderness Combat:
Throughout the vast wilderness PvP will be enabled. Be careful while traversing throughout the wilderness to make sure you do not die! Everything you have in your inventory will drop upon death, no matter where you are.

Gem Shop:
The primary special economy on tribes will be gems. These gems can be used in our /gem shop. The gem shop will include our brand new worker system, spawners, and exclusive cosmetics! Gems will be able to be earned through different crates, mining, and by grinding mobs.

These will be a brand new system for our tribes gamemode! Players will be able to purchase these workers to do different tasks for them! There will be 5 different types of workers which can be purchased. Some of the workers will have to option to link to a chest, which will allow them to automatically deposit their inventory into the chest.

Weekly Updates & No Map End Date:
We plan to keep updating this brand new gamemode and realm weekly to give the players the best experience possible, as well as keep things new and exciting each week. There will be no set end date to a tribes map, so this will allow everyone to properly develop into the map without the fear of losing all of their progress after a few weeks!
