So we've listened to your feedback and have once again added some more items to the infamous Mystery Crates! The main issue seemed to be that now that the reset was a while ago the money that you used to be able to win didn't feel like as much, so I've added some higher values (500 big ones!) as well as a bunch of other stuff I feel is pretty cool.

Here is a list of stuff that was already available:
Full diamond protection 1, full diamond protection 2, full diamond protection 3, full diamond protection 4, full diamond protection 5, kit daily, kit weekly, kit monthly, Jack's Ripper - sharpness 5 sword with looting 3, diamond pic axe with fortune 3, diamond pic axe with silk touch 1, Lucky Hat - golden helmet with protection 5, unbreaking 3 and aqua infinity 1, 2304 carrots, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $75,000. $100,000, 32 obsidian, 128 obsidian, 64 gold blocks, 32 diamond blocks, 16 emerald blocks, 8 bedrock, 1 bedrock, another mystery key, 8 creeper eggs, 64 tnt, 32...

Before i get into this thread i just want to mention that Adam's thread about the reset which you can go and check out here: https://forums.skycade.net/threads/the-reset.179/ inspired me to write this thread as some people might want some extra things added to SkyCade.

This thread is only going to be a small thread as all i really want to do is ask one question.

Is there anything you want added to SkyCade?

For example: Plugins, Custom Enchants etc

If there is something that you can think of that you would like added to SkyCade, please reply to this thread with your suggestion. If you think SkyCade is a good server as it is please vote "No" in the poll.

Thank you for reading this thread. I hope to get some good suggestions from you guys.

So after a very successful start to skycade we have finally reset! I’d just personally like to thank everyone that has stuck around since the start and hope you stick around for as long as you can, because we’ve got a lot of big plans for skycade.

In this reset we’ve added a bunch of the new things and tweaked a lot of stuff that you guys didn’t like, I hope you enjoy detailed posts because that’s what you’ve signed up for by reading this.

Firstly and most importantly we have a new spawn for you all to explore and enjoy, courtesy of one of our good friends. I hope you all enjoy finding the little easter eggs that have been included in the spawn and enjoy our brand new parkour made by Jack himself, there is also a new market design which is pretty stunning, the market can be found in the northwest. Also we have a new tutorial area, where you can find out more about the server, this is located in the northeast!

Moving on swiftly we have the custom generation, now...​

Due to some unfortunate bugs in the Auction House plugin we were forced to remove it from SkyCade, but we are now introducing the Grand Exchange!

This system is inspired from the game "Runescape" you can set items for sale and make a purchase request. You can access the Grand Exchange through a GUI by running the command /ge open.

Here are some screenshots and a simple video explanation:

Basic video usage tutorial. (Don't mind the noise, just turn down the volume)

Yep that's right custom TNT! We decided we'd add something not many faction servers have to spice up the game a bit. This thread explains all about them.



Types of TNT and how to make them

Crafting


You can craft all the bombs with various items, you can check the recipes on this forum post or use /bombs ingame to check them out.


Nuke

As seen in the image above the Nuke creates a big crater, it does not do additional damage to bases but is very useful to clear up the terrain.

Recipe:

Napalm

The napalm bomb makes a decently sized crater and sets fire to everything in radius!

Chemical

The Chemical bomb converts your nature terrain to a bare wasteland!

So this week there's been quite a few updates to the server, which a lot of you will really appreciate and enjoy!

Firstly we've implemented 1.7 TNT MECHANICS! The trouble with 1.8 mechanics was that, first off the change to mounting blocks (the block the TNT being fired off stays on), TNT's power got nerfed extremely. Apparently this got patched in 1.8.3 but many people including I have found that it still happens a lot. This means you need to add much more TNT to your cannon to make it go as far as it did before. For example I needed a 6 charge cannon to go as far as a 3 charge cannon did in 1.7.

Secondly TNT WAS pushed by water, this seems like it shouldn't make a difference but it makes a huge difference. Depending on where you place your water source your TNT cannon will either become extremely powerful, or extremely weak fire range wise. Last you have the mounting blocks, mounting blocks got royally messed in 1.8. The basic mounting blocks are (in order of...​

We've taken certain steps towards the glitching with enderpearl's into others bases. We hope the amount of people getting raided due to this "bug" will now decrease and a fair amount of effort is again needed to raid someone.

Merry Christmas :)
