In this post, you can find the result of our staff teams’ long hours, sleepless nights, and extreme dedication. It is the most extensive and exciting changelog that we have had the pleasure to present, especially given the timeframe to implement everything we had planned. Including a multitude of NEW features, REWORKING of some and REVAMPING of older content to improve gameplay while keeping the features that make Karismic the server that is is. Spoiler: SEASON 7 CHANGELOG (LAST UPDATED 4/11/2020) NEW CONTENT: - NEW Crucible - Enter this area by doing /warp crucible or /outpost and clicking on the Crucible's icon. In this area, all commands and enderpearls are disabled. You can find endermite spawners in 4 different spots on the map, kill these endermites to receive nether stars (min: 1, max: 1). Three of the areas (north, west, and south) have 12 endermite spawners at their respective locations. However, the fourth area (east), the "Ritual Ground" holds 56 endermite spawners. In the middle of the Crucible, there is a building that can only be entered by breaking the blocks on its walls in the 4 compass directions. Each block has 50 durability and will change colors every 5 hits. The walls passively restore durability (1/min). Once inside, you can capture the Crucible outpost and receive a 1.25x nether star sell multiplier in addition to a 1.5x harvest hoe/mob sword honor multiplier. There are only 2 ways to leave the crucible: by dying or entering the portal found in the northeast corner of the map. A layout of the Crucible can be found here https://i.imgur.com/M3Yss4E.png - NEW Throwable creeper eggs to /shop for $500,000 each - NEW Server logo & icon (implemented onto the website and discord) - NEW King’s armor available at /king (200,000 honor a piece) - NEW Fix all sign at spawn for $50,000 - NEW Hub build (Hawk0364) - NEW Freecam prevention - NEW When you buy a rank from the store, instead of it automatically applying you receiving a rank voucher in game - NEW Faction names added to all player nametags (except for staff) - NEW Chunk Collectors - Place these items down in a chunk (one collector per chunk) to automatically collect drops from spawner mobs.

North - 12am/pm East - 3am/pm South - 6am/pm West - 9am/pm To view KoTH loot type /koth loot To view KoTH schedule type /koth schedule - REVAMPED World Generation - A common complaint we've received in previous seasons was how we generated our worlds. Although caves and liquids are a feature of vanilla minecraft, they are not ideal for the Factions gamemode due to "trenching" and other SOTW (start of the world) activities. To combat this, we have introduced new world generation techniques. All 4 worlds (overworld, nether, end, and underworld) have a surface level between y-60 and y-65. The surface blocks in all worlds are the exact same: stained clay, but vary in color. This was done to give each Faction an equal opportunitity at the start of the map to setup their base. There will not be a penalty for Factions who choose to make their base in the overworld with a grass surface, or the underworld with a mycelium surface - UPDATED the Faction rules. Listing all the changes in this changelog would make too noisy so I recommend that you read the new document https://docs.google.com/document/d/1neh5luS8aNb43rHs1wlc1CjNa1TrS6Kk1hf-skPW2bA/edit?usp=sharing - INCREASED Increased view distance to 6 chunks - REDUCED Combat tag duration from 30s -> 15s because of bow boosting being removed - REDUCED Resistance level of groot mask from 4 -> 2 - REDUCED Speed level of flash mask from 3 -> 2 - FIXED Issue with stack mobs becoming hostile again after being killed Spoiler: DRAG ‘N DROP ENCHANT LIST: Helmet Enchants: - Aqua Affinity - Respiration - Protection - Fire Protection - Blast Protection - Projectile Protection - Thorns - Unbreaking Chestplate/Leggings Enchants: - Protection - Fire Protection - Blast Protection - Projectile Protection - Thorns - Unbreaking Boot Enchants: - Feather Falling - Depth Strider - Protection - Fire Protection - Blast Protection - Projectile Protection - Thorns - Unbreaking Pickaxe/Shovel Enchants: - Efficiency - Silk Touch - Fortune - Unbreaking Sword Enchants: - Sharpness - Smite - Bane of Arthropods - Looting - Fire Aspect - Knockback - Unbreaking Axe Enchants: - Efficiency - Silk Touch - Fortune - Unbreaking - Sharpness - Smite - Bane of Arthropods - Looting - Fire Aspect - Knockback Bow Enchants: - Power - Infinity - Flame - Punch - Unbreaking Fishing Rod Enchant: - Luck - Lure Any Enchants: - Unbreaking Spoiler: KINGS ARMOR King's Crown: - Protection 5 - Fire Protection 2 - Unbreaking 10 - Blast Protection 2 - Projectile Protection 2 - Respiration 3 - Aqua Affinity 1 King's Chestplate: - Protection 5 - Fire Protection 2 - Unbreaking 10 - Blast Protection 2 - Projectile Protection 2 King's Leggings: - Protection 5 - Fire Protection 2 - Unbreaking 10 - Blast Protection 2 - Projectile Protection 2 King's Boots: - Protection 5 - Fire Protection 2 - Unbreaking 10 - Feather Falling 4 - Blast Protection 2 - Projectile Protection 2 - Depth Strider 3 FACTION LEADER ROLE: As we finally do look to release this exciting new map of factions, we begin to accept applications for faction leader role. As per usual, you must commit your faction to participate in Season 7 (actual season, turbo map is not required), be the owner of a faction with more than 10 members, have a faction discord. If you are eligible for the role, please make a ticket and the staff team will be with you as soon as they can. CONCLUSION, After reading this post, we hope that you understand our reasoning behind an extended downtime. We wanted to take the time to address issues that arose from previous maps and implement the features that our community wanted. I am speaking for both myself and the entire team when I say this, countless hours and many sleepless nights went into making all of these changes in around 10 days. We are extremely excited to release this new content to you, the community. Thank you again to everyone who has stuck by our side. Whether you are the top donator or just stop by and say hi, you are appreciated and Karismic would not be the same with you.
