As a lot of you know, last month, at the end of July, we began by transferring the server over to a new VPS box. The server was installed and configured as of July 28th, 2020. You may be wondering why have things been so quiet and what is going on? Well, good news, I have answers for you!
We have been hard at work, creating and designing something new to share with you all! We will be releasing a brand new map and world for you to explore and call your home! I am pleased to announce to you the world of Maizalar!
With a new map/world release, there will be a few very noticeable things that are going to happen:
- All balances and currency will reset upon the launch of the new map.
- All MCMMO stats will reset.
- All player data will reset. It means all your set home locations and inventory will reset upon the launch of the new map.
Now with the coming of a new map comes some minor game changes and tweaks. I would like to address the following things being continuously monitored and worked on:
With the ending of the last map we had an extremely unbalanced economy and an extreme lack of use. We would like to focus our economy to be based off of our roleplay experience and not just for extortion or abuse of the system. When create chest shops and player owned shops I would like people to consider how it would go from a roleplay perspective when people put buying and selling prices to items (eg: time spent gather the materials, time spent manufacturing, time spent importing or exporting the materials, etc.)
Aother thing to add to economy is specialty items only gained through roleplaying with a shop keeper in spawn. (by this I mean all those cool decorative heads we use to make places look really cool!) The same expectation is applied like with chest shops, but the people roleplaying for the item will have a set price they can buy the item from the shop owner for or they may be able to adjust the price depending on how well the roleplay is recieved.
Nothing is really changing in the aspect of roleplay but we are going to be starting to focus on it a little more to make it more fun, interactive, and enjoyable for everyone. What this means is you may see different styles or approaches to make longer or shorter storyline based quests and to give more adventures for people to have on the server. On the forums, you may see adjustments to any of the current roleplay materials used in our server.
We have some new plugins which Do Not require any client-side installation on your part! Simply log into the server and start tinkering with the new content provided. We have recently installed Craftbook to our roster of current plugins used to facilitate a more enjoyable atmosphere and experience!
