    Hello skycade!

    Yes, the update that most of you did not want to occur is going to occur today. With this post I want to inform you all that at the start there may be some bugs and things that require tweaking to improve your experience in Factions.

    Due to the update and the consequences it has to some systems we had in 1.8 there will be a certain amount of days until everything we can do to improve both our anti hacking system and 1.8 like pvp. I hope you will all respect a possible increase in restarts that may occur during the next few days and hope you will all slowly start to like 1.11 despite it's downsides.

    Furthermore, if you find any issues with 1.11 feel free to post them in this thread and I will be sure to take note of your reported issues.

    A few more details regarding 1.11:

    • The auctionhouse has been reset due to incompatibility with 1.11, warnings and announcements have been send in the past few days informing players to remove their items. Unfortunately not everyone has removed their auctioned items resulting in item loss.
    • 1.11 hit delay have been disabled.
    • No lapis will be required to enchant.
    • Mob stacking will be out temporarily. (May even return today)
    • Mobhead drop rates have been lowered, and are higher depending on the amount of looting on your sword.
    • More vanilla redstone mechanics like improvements will be made over the coming days.
    • Elytra will not be obtainable.

    So I'm assuming this means you can only join on 1.11 no lower version correct ?

    Shame if so, I'll have to find a new shader pack.
    But presumably, yes
     
  4. Just curious, if the beetle wings will not be obtainable through survival needs, well we still hopefully see a kit featuring the eleytra or is it banned from the server? Has the beetle wings been fly hacking and that's why they're banned?
     
  5. How long should we expect for the server to be down?

  12. There is a whitelist on right now that is limiting the amount of people that can join.

    1.11 ruined Skycade. If you guys can spend 50+ dollars on a world gen plugin, then you should be able to spend that on an anticheat. Plus, the sword fighting is broken, I can echest in combat, pearl in combat, mob stacking is off, its just all ruined.

    You can't get a good anticheat for 50 dollars. They are most likely getting a custom one developed. Just be patient and everything will get fixed.
     
  15. could you guys post an announcement when most of the big bugs are fixed. Mainly aac so that people will stop complaining.
     
  16. Remember, their will be bugs for a few days, maybe weeks, but they will be worked on.
     
  17. Sheesh man, I was just asking. Don't need to be all Rude!
