    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 (excluding: /feed, /bal, /f c p, /f c f, /f coords, /upgrade, /tps, /honor) 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 28 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. Right click a collector to access it's contents which can be sold. Collectors ARE compatible with sell wands, so if you are using a sell wand treat it like a chest and it will work exactly the same. Drop list: Raw Pork, Cooked Pork, Raw Beef, Cooked Beef, Leather, Rotten Flesh, Bone, Arrow, Blaze Rod, Gold Ingot, TNT, Diamond

    - NEW Captcha - Map based CAPTCHA system that is randomly given to players when farming cane or killing mobs in an effort to prevent scripting

    - NEW Faction Spam Protection - Previously we have had issues with players using console clients to create, disband, and open their factions creating a situation that was unwieldy for staff to deal with. To combat that, we have introduced a command that similarly to chat toggle, when executed will temporarily disable broadcasts from the three commands.

    - NEW Stars - Every 15 minutes, a Star will appear in the overworld (/spawn). Find the Star and mine it 50 times (50 times per Faction) to destroy the star and receive key fragments, currency pouches, masks, or other miscellaneous rewards. If a star is not broken within 15 minutes, a new one will fall and the old one will be destroyed

    - NEW Karismic Pass - Daily/Weekly missions which will give you rewards after completing different missions. You can upgrade your pass on our store for $5 to receive additional rewards




    NEW COMMANDS:

    - NEW /f setbaseregion - This command is only accessible to Coleader/Leader roles. The command must be executed while you are in your Faction's territory. When executed, it will set all connected claims to "base regions". A base region is the ONLY region protected by your Faction shield.

    - NEW Faction Roster

    o /f roster

    o /f roster add <player>

    o /f roster remove <player>

    o /f roster list

    Editing your Faction's roster is only accessible to the Faction's leader by default. The leader can then go into the /f perm menu and edit which roles can edit the Faction's roster. For a player to be added to the roster, they must have logged onto the server before and currently be in your Faction. During grace, players can join and leave Faction's as they please but once grace ends, only players who are currently on the Faction's roster will be able to join. ROSTER IS NOT ABLE TO BE EDITED AFTER GRACE

    - NEW /jellylegs - command that will toggle fall damage for the player executing it

    - NEW /decrypt - command that allows you to decrypt engrams without visiting the Cryptarch at /warp cryptarch (Available to Karismic rank by default)

    - NEW /upgrade - command that will open the upgrade menu of harvest hoes, sell wands, and mob swords when entered if one of those items is being held. this was done to combat the issue regarding the right click mechanic and standing on pressure plates (UPGRADABLE TOOLS NO LONGER OPEN THEIR UPGRADE MENU VIA RIGHT CLICKING)

    - NEW /kmasks – command that allows players to see all available masks

    - NEW /roam - This command is available to all and puts you in spectator mode for 60s, allows you to travel up to 64 blocks away from your location upon typing the command on the x/z axis (y-axis is not limited), 60s cooldown on the command

    - NEW Added the player's faction's online players/max players to the scoreboard

    - NEW Outpost build thanks to hawk

    - NEW Enabled badlion printer

    - NEW Creative Printer - You must have $5,000 before executing the command. You can only use printer in your own Faction territory. You can only use the following commands while in printer mode: /printer, /list, /msg, /r, /reply, /eat, /feed, /f c f. /f c p, /f c a, /fly, /bal, /balance, /f chat

    - NEW shockwaves/trays that will not be as heavy on the server when used

Each kit contains an armor set with protection 4, unbreaking 3, depth strider 3 on the boots, and varying custom enchants. Every set piece has a chance to apply Heavy Plating I as well. In addition to the armor set, the kits include a Sword (Knight), Axe (Viking), and Bow (Archer) respectively.

    Each KoTH runs twice a day on the following schedule...
    North - 12am/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
