    Hey everyone,

    From the very release of our 1.16 Survival servers, we’ve focused primarily on ensuring performance is as best as it could possibly be, which has been the cause for delaying this update for as long as we have. While that has been going on, I and the rest of the Survival management team have been hard at work conceptualising, planning, and turning our ideas into reality in the form of this entire content update. With that in mind, let’s get into the features of this update.

    Due to the scale of this update, we’ll be separating it into two parts, with this announcement serving as part one, as well as outlining the features that will be in part two.

    Part One

    Brand New and Overhauled Cosmetics
    Starting us off with this update is the addition of a brand new cosmetics system that integrates already-existing and entirely brand new cosmetics into one unified system. This unified system allows you to access all current cosmetics in a simplified layout, as well as being able to see any cosmetics you do not have access to, unlike prior (in the case of tags).

    The system brings together the following cosmetics:
    • Arrow Trails
    • Emotes
      • [*][​IMG]
    • Glow
    • Join Message Packs
    • Sprays
    • Tags
      • [​IMG]
    • Trails
    • Wings
    Moving to this unified system will be a seamless transition, and you’ll continue to have access to each and every cosmetic you have unlocked prior. While we don’t expect there to be any issues with this transition, please do report if you lose access to any cosmetics and provide as much detail as possible.

    Alongside this, we have several new cosmetics types being brought in:
    • Death Message Packs (coming in part two)
      • When you die, rather than showing vanilla messages, you’ll have a themed death message instead
    • Kill Message Packs (coming in part two)
      • Upon killing a player, broadcast a themed message based on the tool you use
    • Symbols
      • As the name implies, show a symbol before your rank in chat
      • [​IMG]
    • Name Colors
      • Change the color of your name in chat
      • Changing your nickname will also work with this feature
      • [​IMG]
    • Nameplates
      • Custom nameplates above your regular nameplate
      • [​IMG]
    As you can see in the images above, this new system has full support for RGB values, which opens the door to many different options never given to us before. Expect more RGB throughout all cosmetics as we move forward with this new system. Partially introduced with Join Message Packs, you may now toggle most cosmetics directly from the main GUI, which will not wipe your current selections of cosmetics.

    See how many of each cosmetic you have currently unlocked.

    Player Warps Update
    New in this update is the much-requested addition of being able to filter warps based on various metrics. You may have wondered what the point of likes, dislikes, and visitors was for, this is it.

    [​IMG]
    As you can see in the image above, you may filter warps based on the most important analytics like the most visited, or the highest-rated warps.

    [​IMG]
    As well as filtering, we have now added more information about each individual warp upon hovering over it in the GUI. Unlike before, you may now see the likes, dislikes, rating, unique visitors, total members, and creation date and time.

    [​IMG]
    Our last addition to the Player Warps update is the addition of warp icons. With this new feature, you’ll be able to set a custom icon for your warp which will show in any GUI, including sponsored warps! Unlock warp icons through various means, whether via paid avenues or through gameplay. You may change your warp’s icon by doing /warp icon <warp> and selecting the icon you wish to use.

    Server Announcer
    With this update, we’re finally releasing true periodic server announcements. While we could have simply added a basic announcements system, this custom system is completely dynamic for every player, and will only show announcements that are relevant to you. Whether it be a simple tip explaining how to use a certain feature or announcing a new product on the store, these announcements will be tailored to what is useful to you.

    [​IMG]
    Alongside this feature, depending on your rank, you will be able to view and toggle various announcement types to further tailor your experience. E.g. you aren’t interested in being informed about upcoming events, then you may simply disable all event announcements.

    Claimflags Update
    Recently, we clarified our stance on player-run casinos and how we want to both ensure they were fair to all players, but that they were transparent with everyone about the potential winning you may get from them. With this, we implemented the ViewContainers flag which allows players to look inside any container within a claim that has this flag enabled without being able to alter the contents.

    As well as the above flag, we have also added the ReadLecterns flag which, as you can probably tell by the name, allows players to read books that are on a lectern without being able to modify or remove them.

    Smaller Changes
    As well as the major additions coming to the server, we have a wide variety of smaller changes and fixes coming with this update.
    • /speed now accepts decimals
    • Added /kdr to view K/D ratio
    • Fixed some duplication glitches in AllowPvP claimflag
    • Added /m as an alias to /msg
    • Fixed an issue where eating food in spawn wouldn’t let you regenerate hunger
    • Added /faq as an alias to /help
    • Added /bm bal as an alias to /bm balance
    • Added glass, honey blocks, ink sacs, leather, and extra spawn eggs to /shop
    • Increased sell price of blaze rods, spider eyes, and string
    • Magma Cream will now be caught by Chunk Collectors
    • Cocoa Beans can now be sold with SellWands
    • Increased efficiency levels of each Black Market Axe and Spade by 1 or 2
    • Increased max jobs each paid rank gets
      • Squire (4)
      • Knight (4)
      • Paladin (4)
      • Lord (5)
      • Duke (5)
      • Legend (6)
      • Royal (6)
      • Stonks (7)
    Part Two
    As mentioned, due to the size and complexity of this update, part two will be releasing some time after part one. There will, however, not be a subsequent announcement for this, which is why we are compiling all features of this update into this single post.

    Drop Party
    We all enjoy a good manual drop party, but what if it was done on a much bigger and better scale? Well, that’s where drop parties come into play. Using bleeding-edge technology to ensure we retain great performance at high player counts, this system will allow you to, in essence, host your own miniature concert in spawn!

    [​IMG]
    As you can see in the screenshot above, running this drop party will give anyone that participates many different items, including rare OP items, exclusives, collectibles, and so much more! All while this is going on, you as the host will be able to modify the concert in any way you like while the music that you choose plays in the background. We’ll have much more to share on this system when it’s ready for release!

    Quests
    Found yourself looking for more to do on the server? Then Quests are just for you! Complete daily, weekly, and monthly quests for a wide variety of rewards, ranging from money to MCMMO levels, to much more. Alongside these personal quests come global quests, in which the entire server can contribute, for even more rewards.

    Spleef
    Since its introduction in the Christmas Update, we have received many many requests to bring back the Spleef arena. With that said, we’re happy to confirm that Spleef will indeed be making a return to the server in part two! Rather than taking up space at the pool, it’ll get its own dedicated area in the spawn which will be determined very soon, so make sure you keep an eye out for the announcement of part two. Just like with the Christmas version, we’ll be bringing back the leaderboards too!

    Kill / Death Messages & Misc Cosmetics Update
    Upon the initial release of the new cosmetics system, both kill and death messages will not be available to use due to time constraints. However, we will be back to work upon the release of part one to get part two of this update finished in a timely fashion.

    The only other feature not coming in part one with the cosmetics system is the addition of a toggle for emotes, which will also be coming in part two, so keep an eye out for that.

    Warp Icons
    Due to the tight schedule with ensuring all major aspects of this update are ready for release, we were not able to allocate enough time to creating more warp icon packs. But rest assured, that more will be coming in part two of this update!

    In Closing
    With all that said, Survival Content Update #1 will be releasing tomorrow, Friday, February 12th at 3PM ET! If you have any questions about this upcoming release, then make sure you join the Discord and join the Survival channels!

    Thank you all for reading, we’ll see you when the update releases tomorrow!
