We will be having a one week grace period. The grace period will mean the following things:

During the first hour of the map, we will be disabling a few things to make sure the release goes as smooth as possible.

Flying will be completely disabled.

Outpost will be disabled.
Everyone will be invisible at spawn.

The economy will be based around Cactus and Sugar Cane. The full sheet will be linked here tomorrow and will also be announced in our Discord.

Changelog

I'm sure many of you already know most of our features but as this is a new realm we will list be listing most of them again.

Fortified Chunks
This new raiding patch will give the players a different way to shoot at walls while providing a mechanic to help out defenders protect their loot. Each base’s buffer will be divided into individual chunks. When TNT explodes in the first chunk of walls, the chunk behind it will be immune to TNT for 3 seconds(subject to change). This feature will essentially allow us to control the exact time a base can be breached. If we ever decide to slow down base making by disallowing genbuckets or making a harder economy, we’ll have the tools to tweak raiding to be balanced around that.

Faction Raid Claims
Currently, raid claims are too big, too many factions have them on one base, and they never go away. The way we want to start addressing this issue is with an edited raid claim mechanic that involves upkeeping it. The raid claims will need to be maintained with money every couple of hours or you will risk losing them and they will be unclaimed. TNT Fill will only work in raid claims. You will only be allowed to have 1 /f raidclaim down at any point in time. Raid Claims have a different color on the Faction map, and once the command /f raidclaim is issued, it will instantly claim a 10x10 raid claim.

Force Invites
When a player joins a faction, then leaves said faction, they are not able to join that same faction back without using a force invite. Factions will have 5 force invites that reset once a week.

Tray Pickaxe
Similar to its counterpart, the Black Pickaxe, the Tray Pickaxe makes removing your wall-genning trays as simple as can be. By removing only netherrack and dirt in a 15x15 radius, your trays will be cleared in no time!

Mega Bucket
The Mega Bucket gives you the power of the oceans in your hand. The Mega Bucket allows you to carry up to 10,000 buckets of water, while only taking up one slot!

Notify Chunks
These special faction chunks will instantly notify your entire faction should TNT enter said chunk!

Faction Alts
Faction Alts has seen huge success, however, we felt there are aspects of the feature that we can improve on. To start, we limited accounts that join /f alts to strictly being able to place sand, gravel, and red sand. Additionally, we have added /f open alts to allow players to rapidly and more easily invite their alts. Be sure to confirm all the accounts so an unwanted account does not join!

Faction Friendly Fire
Listen, we all have that one member that claims to be the best at pvp. Put your faction members to the test by enabling /f friendlyfire and let the battle commence!

Faction Status
Ever have that one member who seems to be hoarding all the money? Check up on your factions balance by doing /f status!

Lava Fishing
Ahhh, that's hot. That's hot. Once your fishing level is over 750, you will be able to fish in lava for increased rewards!

Buycraft Update
We noticed how powerful we had made specific buycraft items, thus dictating the rest of the map. We have adjusted our crates to hopefully provide satisfaction for the buyer, but also allowing for fair competition among the factions. We have reduced the frequency of things such as throwable creeper eggs, armor and creeper eggs. The Bard Kit has been improved and made more difficult to obtain. Depth Strider 3 was implemented to all the top donor ranks. and we have added new bosses with unique drops.​
