It’s about time we give you a progress update!
Let’s start things off with the biggest news: a proper notification system! Finally! When you log into the server now, a book will show up containing all the recent news and updates we make to the server. This is a big deal because previously we had no way of letting every player on our server know in-game about any new updates and important changes. Of course, if you have joined our Discord channel or check our website regularly it has never been a problem, but we believe interacting with a server outside of the game should be entirely optional. We are not quite there yet though since it’s difficult to fit all the text in these articles inside of books, so the information in this in-game “newspaper” will be summarized. Finally, don’t worry about being spammed, because it will only be displayed to you once every 24 hours. This cooldown is subject to change as we keep experimenting.
The second big thing is the addition of several new items in our shops!
The following items have been added: Totem of Undying, Ender Chest, Enchanting Table, Block of Redstone, Iron Trapdoor, Dark Prismarine Slab, Prismarine Brick Slab, Shield, Prismarine Slab, Gold Nugget, all types of Boat, all types of Stripped Wood and regular Wood, all types of wooden Fence Gate, all types of Stripped Log, Iron Nugget, all types of wooden Trapdoor, all types of Sign, Podzol, all types of wooden Door, all types of wooden Fence, Acacia Sapling, Dark Oak Sapling, all types of wooden Slab, Acacia Leaves and Dark Oak Leaves. Now that was a handful, but that’s not even all! All the wooden items mentioned above are located in a new shop building, the Carpenter’s Workshop (credit DragonProto), and some items have been moved from the Masonry’s Workshop to here. Some items have also moved from the Wizard Tower to the Masonry’s Workshop, so make sure to check out the locations in the price list next time you go shopping!
In August we nerfed Ender Pearls by a lot. The reason for this was that the previous most efficient way to farm Ender Pearls required a lot more work to set up compared to the new method introduced in 1.14. This means you won’t get as much out of these farms anymore, but on the contrary, Ender Pearls are a lot cheaper to buy now, and all items craftable with Ender Pearls have also been affected. This means End Crystal and Eye of Ender are cheaper and sell for less as well. As always we appreciate any feedback regarding changes like this because at the end of the day we just have a top-down view of the situation.
