Just thought for the sake of things I would make a few things clear for everyone wondering about the changes after the wipe since I keep getting a TON of questions almost every day. I am going to list everything out below and hopefully it will help people understand a little better.
We will be "upgrading" to 1.8. It isn't an official version of Bukkit/Spigot but it is a plugin that allows 1.8 clients to connect and allows the server to basically act as a 1.8 server and gives us all the new blocks, mobs, and world generation. So be ready to upgrade your clients!
Changes with factions:
·Ability to conquer, also know as overclaiming, will be enabled.
»Conquering will cost $5,000 per chunk.
·Ability to pillage, also know as destroying/griefing, will be enabled.
»Pillaging will cost $2,500 per chunk.
·Buying chunks of land has increased in price slightly.
» Price per chunk of land will cost $150.
·Selling chunks of land has increased in your favor.
»You will recieve $75 for chunks of land you sell/unclaim back to wilderness.
·Enemying a faction will no longer grant you access to their chests.
»Cost to enemy a faction is now $25,000.
·To neutral another faction after enemying/allying has a price now.
»Cost to nuetral another faction is $15,500.
·Faction power has been dropped drastically.
»10 faction Power per person now.
»Dying will result in 2 faction power being deducted from your faction.
»Faction power gain is 2 power per hour.
New commands with Factions:
/f seechunk (Enables you to see chunks around you. Becareful if you have a slower computer, particles are spawned and will lag you slightly)
/f flag <yourfactionname> monsters <yes/no> (Used to enable or disabled monster spawning on your land)
Chests can now be exploded, whether your land is claimed or not the chest will explode and drop all items. CreeperHeal will heal the chest back into place but will not replace any items.
Plugins removed are as follows:
·MyPet (Removed for now since we are using a plugin that makes us 1.8)
·Carbon (Gives us 1.8 features, such as block, mobs, and world generation!)
·HeadHunter (Drops heads of mobs and players when killed. Head drop is lower for mobs but is 100% for players when killed)
·RareItemHunter (Spawn powerfull boss eggs around the spawn, 5k radius to be exact. /ri whatis for more info)
·Bloodmoon (Bloodmoon is back! Don't try to dupe items kiddos cause it can wipe the enchants and lores off your items! HAHA)
·EnderPearlCoolDown (That's right! There is now a cooldown on the use of ender pearls of 5 seconds NO MORE GLITCHING FOR YOU!)
CreeperHeal now has a heal timer of 30 minutes from the original 15 minutes.
World Borders have changed for the Over World and the Nether.
·Over World: 100,000 (Big enough to have exploring room and space from other factions yet small enough to keep raiding and conquering a relevant thing)
Whew, another wall of text! I think I pretty much summed all the changes up but who knows right now, I am so sick I can't tell which way is up right now.
P.S I am going to start playing legitally! So you all get to see how horrible I am at surviving when I have everyone chasing after me. I will also be recording my adventures on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrEqlipseD and streaming as well on Twitch: http://www.twitch.tv/eqlipsed so please feel free to follow and subscribe because I will be doing events on both for in-game rewards!
