GIFTS
Gifts is a brand new feature, exclusive to the Winter 2020 release.
They are obtainable through "Gift Drops"; an event that occurs:
  • When a Vote Party commences (small chance)
  • When a player purchases it from our webstore found HERE
During the Gift Drop, 10 random chests, gifts, will appear in Spawn. They can be interacted with, and whoever interacts with them first will receive some epic items, such as balance, tokens, crate keys, machines, and so much more!

MACHINERY
Machinery was an essential part of the last season, and will be even more important this season. But how...?
  • Added new Salvager Machine
    The Salvager machine will use its' Energy to convert an item into its' recipe! Cool, right?
  • Added new Charged Anvil Machine
    The Charged Anvil machine can repair broken items, using Energy!
  • Implemented an I/O system
    The I/O system (input/output) will allow transfers to machines using hoppers; this makes it easier for automation of machines, and requires less player supervision.

    Exact details on how the I/O system will work will be provided once we get closer to release.
  • Buffed Jetpacks
    Jetpacks will now be 2x more efficient
    Jetpacks will now consume less Energy when you are in your own nation territory
  • Machines will now count towards nation-top points
NOTE: Machinery will always be evolved, improved and expanded upon; new machines will be added, changes will be made and bugs will be fixed. Do NOT hesitate to share your feedback on how to improve machinery in our Discord.


WARS
Wars... the most important, yet never-working feature.
This season, we've put some efforts into fixing and improving wars, here's how:
  • Wars will now be split into two different stages
    Wars will now occur across two different stages: the Capturing Stage and the Elimination Stage.

    The Capturing Stage
    Your nation has to "hold" your opponent's capital for 20 minutes.
    If your nation succeeds, you win that stage.

    The Elimination Stage
    Your nation has to eliminate the opponent nation a specific amount of times to win.
    The nation that reaches that specific amount first will win that stage.

    The nation with most won stages at the conclusion of stage 2 will be the winner of the War.
    Yes: wars can now tie too.
  • Wars can now be temporarily paused if both nations agree
  • Disabled Jetpacks in wars
  • Fixed issues with called-in allies not being able to hurt others or be hurt
  • Fixed issue where you could capture a nation from Warzone
  • Fixed issue where you could not pick up items in enemy territory during a war
NOTE: Wars will always be improved and expanded upon; changes will be made and bugs will be fixed. Do NOT hesitate to share your feedback on how to improve wars in our Discord.


NATION TAX
There are 2 types of nation tax: upkeep tax & player tax. You can read more about the taxes below:
Every week, on Sundays, your nation will be charged with a tax of $5 for every claim you own.
This process is done automatically.

If your nation, however, lacks the balance to pay this tax, you have until the following Sunday to pay off both taxes. If you do not pay off both taxes, your nation will be
DISBANDED!
Faction Leaders can set a tax rate, a percentage from 0% to 100%.
Every week, on Sundays, each and every member are required to pay the percentage of their balance to their nation.
This process is done automatically.
The leader can see who taxed and how much, and therefore, punish tax evaders.


NATION ELECTIONS
Don't like your current leadership? No problem.
You can now overthrow your own government - if enough members share your opinion.

The nation election consists of 3 stages:
  • No-Confidence: Do you have any confidence in your current leadership?
    Requires at least 50% of the nation to vote FOR, for this to pass.
  • Overthrow: Do you believe the current leadership should be overthrown?
    Requires at least 66% of the nation to VOTE for, for this to pass.
  • Leadership: Who should be the new leader of the nation?
    The member with the most amount of votes will be assigned leader at the conclusion of the election.
Later on, we will support nations holding their own elections for other things, such as, "invite this player" and so on.


CUSTOM ENCHANTS
... have been removed.
They have been replaced by various items.


WHAT ELSE?
  • Added /baltop, /tokentop and /playtimetop
  • Added a fee to Warps
    To warp, you must now pay a certain fee. This fee is dependent on your distance to the target warp.
    The fee has a base cost of $1,000, but is increased by $1 for every 10 blocks. Warping from NA West to Australia would cost
    $4,110.

    You will NOT have to pay this fee during the Grace Period.
