Wanted to Announce Two Server Wide Contests/ Events today. But First, just a quick reminder about our recurring Top Monthly Voter Contest. The Top Voters at the end of each month receive store credit to spend on Ranks, Keys, etc. You can check out the prizes and vote links here: https://gbcraft.pw/index.php?threads/voting-links.2/
The Top Voters for June will be announced at the end of the month...
Now, onto the contest announcements!
June Build Contest - Nature
A poll was recently held to decide the theme of this months build contest, for full transparency the result is pictured below:
NATURE was selected by you as the theme of this months contest. I can't wait to see what stuff you guys build. As always when you've completed your build submit it to the relevant discord Channel #buildcontests, with the following template:
IGN (in game name): Name of Build: Build Pictures:
The Winner of this months contest will get a $10 Store Voucher + $50,000 Starting Balance when the Server world/economy resets for the 1.16 update plus, the respect of all your peers for creating the best build. The winner is decided by a vote of all members of the server.
As people are probably aware, the PvP arena gets very little use from people on the Server. So.. to drum up hype around the arena we want to organise a tournament for the middle of the month. The rough date set for this is Saturday 20th of June. It will be run as follows:
Anyone who wants to enter send me a DM between now and the event (I will keep reminding people).
I will make a list of all people who are going to enter....
Hope everyone's keeping well. Just wanted to release a little preview of what everyone can expect for the long anticipated 1.16 Server Update. I can't confirm when this will release, just as soon as the plugins and updates are available for the server!
Fully Reset Worlds (including Nether and End)
We're planning a full world reset for the Nether update. That means a completely new fresh map to explore and all the features that come with a world running on 1.16. This obviously will include the Nether and End that will both experience resets. The Nether is perhaps the most exciting as all the changes expected from the 1.16 update will be brought over to the Server.
Fully Reset Economy
Along with the world Reset the Economy will be fully reset as well. Everyone's balance will be reset back to zero.
Overhauled Land Claim System and Clans System in Favour of Towny
We are currently working hard on developing a completely new fresh land claim system. Towny has been suggested and voted on by players and will form the basis for the new land claim system. Players can create their own town or join their friends. We're hoping this will be a new fun replacement for the rarely used clans system and will encourage players to play together, build together and hopefully improve the cooperative elements of the Server
Jobs Feature to be Added
This feature has also been suggested and highly requested by players. Development is ongoing for this as well. We hope this will give players more stuff to do when they are online. By completing daily and weekly tasks they will be able to earn cool rewards such as crate keys, ingame cash and much more!
New Higher Levels added to /Level
Currently Levelling only goes as far as 10. We aim to add more levels, enhance the current prize system with more enticing prizes and add some more, harder to complete requirements to keep levelling balanced and reasonably difficult...
Hope you're all keeping well. Just a few notes from me today relating to some changes that have been made to the Server and The Discord recently as well as our plans for the future. Most of this information is also over on the Discord in the #announcements channel. Also I'd like to remind anyone who hasn't already to create a forums account and start contributing to the conversation! Some ranking up will soon require a forums account so I want you guys to be ready to contribute! All that said lets get onto the patch notes.
Fixed issue with PlayerWarps, now functioning as before. Type "/pwarp" to Acccess the Player Warps menu.
Readded LeaderBoards back to the Server. Access with "/leaderboards". As they were causing lag before they've now been adjusted to update once every hour.
Switching back to Top Monthly Voter System. First Prizes will be awarded at the end of May! Make sure to keep voting for the server. Even if you're not interested in the prizes it really helps to grow the server playerbase. Prizes are as Follows:
Added an INGAME Chat channel to Discord. Ingame server chat will now show up in this channel along with achievements, and other info such as when players join/leave the server. People on Discord can chat in this channel and their messages will appear in Server Chat as well so its two way communication. This means people away from their computers can keep an eye on server chat with their Phone/Tablet. Check it out over on the Discord....
