It hardly feels like any time at all we did our last space reset however it will have been 9 weeks this weekend! This time last week we asked you for ideas on what you want to see on this series of resets. Thank you all so much for any ideas given. There were so many ideas which was awesome. Unfortunately we won't be able to please everyone, for example some people want Dungeons removed, others don't but we have done our best to hit the middle ground to make the network as good as it can be. All I will say is, if your changes did not get added in this reset, do not worry. There is a lot more coming over the next few months...
Now that is out the way, I can tell you that our Space realm will be resetting this Saturday at 2 PM EST! We have had a hard weeks working getting all the features together so we could get you it as soon as possible instead of keeping you waiting. We really are proud of this and are very happy with the amount of work we have put into this to give you guys what you want.
Of course, just like any other update, we will have a giveaway going on. However, this reset will be a little different. Rather than it being on Twitter, this one will take place in Discord. You will see this post be posted in our Announcements channel to announce the reset. All you will need to do is react to that post with a to enter. We have done a lot of giveaways on our Twitter so it is only fair that we do some in Discord for those that do not have a Twitter account.
We have been through over 10 Space spawns since we launched and it is a shame to see some of our builds be used for a map and then go down the drain. This map we will be bringing back one of the old spawns! If anyone wants to find some screenshots of the spawn you think it may be, post them below and if you are right I might DM you a small giftcard!
Lets put it this way, there are a lot of changes. When we go from map to map throughout our ".0" seasons, we do not usually make a lot of changes, if any at all. This series of resets is different. We have made so many changes and we can't wait for you to try them out. A list of everything we have changed will be below as well as any information you need to know about the features such as different multipliers etc. Read carefully as these new features will effect the way you play and will make or break your Island Top position.
So, essentially what most people wanted was us to go back to 1.0 however, as some people may know it is just physically impossible for us to revert almost 18 months of work back so we asked what you wanted to see. You told us what you missed and what you do not like now so we have hopefully changed it. As I said earlier, this is just a start on changing the network back to the way you liked it. We have a lot more planned and a good way to do this but we will not be releasing any more information on that yet.
Old Experience Keys
So many suggestions said that you wanted to see the old experience keys back, so we have done that. Rather than XP crates spawning the Arena, you will now need to redeem your experience in /xpshop in order to get experience keys. To prevent people autoclicking these crates massively on their islands, you will only be able to open the experience keys at spawn by clicking them at /warp crates.
We will be going back to a more 1.0 styled economy. The economy will be much slower and your top spawners will be Villagers and Iron Golems again. This will prevent users having millions and millions of spawners and will be a lot more manageable for most players. You will also see crops that need a more manual farming approach such as cane, melons etc become better than cactus.
A lot of people were saying make minions worth it again but could not give us any great ways to do this. We have however come up with a way to do this. When mobs are killed using the minions attack or attackall mode, the loot you get from that mob will be multiplied by 1.5x so essentially killing mobs with a minion will get you 50% more loot.
Limited Time Shop
Every now and then, a time sensitive shop will appear in the /shop menu. You can access this for however long it says in chat when it first becomes active. The shop will not give massive boosts but it may give you small discounts like Iron ingots that sell for 5% more or 5% off Island value blocks etc. It will not happen at a set time every day and will be completely random.
Every now and then, a title will appear on your screen giving you a quest to do such as "Mine 1,000 cobblestone". Every player on the realm you are on will receive this quest and the first person to complete it will get a reward.
People liked the changes with the Runes menu and how you could just buy the rune you wanted however it was way too easy to get a max set because you could just buy the top tier of each Rune. Now, you will still be able to chose the Rune that you want to buy however, you will not be able to pick the tier. You will have to just click on for example, the Revenge Rune book and see what tier it gives you. This will make it a lot harder for people to get top tier Runes.
So many of you asked for it, so we have now removed blockstacks. We are really not sure on this change and did not want to add it but it was by far the most suggested feature on the thread so, good luck!
Back in the days where we had over 1,000 players on realm, we had to make some pretty drastic changes to allow us to accommodate for this many players. One of these changes was mob stacking. The changes we made had massive effects on peoples farms and didn't really allow you to have much control over them. With this reset, we are changing the way how our mob stacking works so stacks will not "merge" together as far away etc.
- Tiered hoppers will be a lot less common from crates etc.
- Dungeons have been heavily nerfed to stop them being the only way to win.
- Sell portals will have a 1.5x multiplier but you will be limited to 3 per Island.
- We have removed a lot of the useless spawners from the /shop.
- Heavily increased redstone limits to allow you to make more redstone contraptions.
- Increased the prices in the Arena to make it worth your time again.
- Points will now be harder to find but will carry across resets.
- The sword skill has been made a lot easier to level up.
- Made some changes to the tutorial
- Added /is mail <message>. Leader can send messages to all Island members when they login. Will expire after 24 hours.
- Added /is notice <message>. This will be a static message all Island members get when they login.
- Added in new code to prevent Machines and creatures mob multiplier stacking.
- Added new code to prevent some more random boosters stacking.
- When giving our Dungeon passes, the server will now ignore people that are not synced to Discord.
- A few aesthetic changes to things like messages etc.
- Nerfed the drop rates of sell wands.
- Made a few changes to points shop.
- Overall nerfed all crates, monthly crates, vaults etc to drop less spawners, money etc due to economy changes.
- Less Dungeon passes will now be given out every hour.
- Of course, removed the Christmas update.
- Malls will be limited to 3 per person.
- Malls tp command will now use the shop ID (/mall tp <id>).
- Nerfed generators to be in line with the new economy.
- Better chances of getting better blocks from cobble generators.
- Increased prices of Island prestiges.
- Max spawner stack of 250.
- Max mob stack of 1000.
We saw a lot of suggestions on the thread saying that we should limit each time to only be able to win Island Top on 1 realm to make things fairer for any other players that would not usually be able to beat these massive power teams. This really would not be possible to do however, we have slightly changed the way our prizes will be paid out to give other teams a better chance of winning a PayPal prize.
- 1st: $100 PayPal and $50 Coupon
- 2nd: $50 PayPal and $75 Coupon
- 3rd: $50 Coupon
- 4th: $15 Coupon
- 5th: $10 Coupon
What will you keep?
Once again, there is no changes to what you will be keeping over reset. However, make sure you read the changes above as from this reset forward, points will be kept over reset unless we hit a ".0" in which they will be reset.
- Island Expansions
- Hopper Expansions
- Fast Place
- Creatures (Levels will be reset)
What a reset post! We usually make little to no changes throughout normal resets like this however we have decided to change it up a little bit and throw you a bunch of new content for you to enjoy. We really hope that all of you like these new updates and we hope to see some of our old players making a return.
If there is something you really don't like about this reset then of course feel free to make a suggestions post and if it gets enough support we can revert our changes or change it to work in a different way as long as you get them in quickly!
Once again, thank you for reading and we hope you enjoy! Make sure to enter the giveaway in our Discord and we will see you all on Saturday at 2 PM EST!
