Caves and Cliffs Update

Minecraft 1.17

We're Excited!

What to Expect

We're watching each snapshot review closely. As of now, Mojang have said 1.17 should be compatible with older worlds, but we won't get the generation until the Holidays. The current plan is to keep/expand the current map; The resource world will obviously be all in. We will likely start working on Map 2 early next year offline. Let us know what you think. Vote on Discord!

Player Data

The upgrade shouldn't mess with any current in-game data such as Shopkeepers or your player balance. However, if you run into any issues, open an in-game ticket using /ticket or contact staff using our online contact form.

Minecraft Announcement

We have mixed feelings about the two-part release, but the announcement did provide a positive message about 1.17 being compatible with old worlds. We expect to upgrade the server initially with the summer release as soon as it drops on PaperMC to get some of the new blocks and mobs. However, we are still unsure on how this new generation, which is expected to be released near the end of the year, will affect newly rendered chunks on the current map. There is still plenty of space and expanding the map a few thousand blocks should be doable.

Economy Overhaul

We ran into some issues with signs during this last update. So, we are taking this opportunity to rework the withdrawal and depositing system. All exchanges, except for the spawn bank, have been removed throughout the world and will be replaced by a much more intuitive and accessible set of commands: /withdraw and /deposit. We expect to have the new commands online by tomorrow. Until then, the only means of withdrawing emeralds is at the main spawn bank. If you are having issues with signs near your settlement, open a ticket in game or here on the site.

Open for trading!

Version one of our custom stock plugin is up! Learn more on the Server page. The system is simple, numbers are pulled twice daily from total material produced vs used vs sold. After all the crazy, mind-numbing calculation, a share price is created. You can buy and sell your shares from anywhere in the world. More markets will be opening up if players enjoy it! Commands and other info is also available in the main PFX Exchange at spawn.

Precious Metal Exchange

There is a new mini-game coming to the server that is actually based on player behavior! Each week the statistics of ores mined, sell transactions, and crafted material for all players will be fed into an algorithm which will change "interest value" in shares you will be able to buy from the PFx. The value of each market share will change as the "interest" algorithm changes. The markets currently planned are: Netherite, Diamond Ore, Gold Ore, Iron Ore, and Lapis Ore. Base prices will be set this month to get it started, but after that everything will be automated on the server. Since everything is actually based on real-time stats, there is a very immersive level of realism and randomness which should make for an entertaining experience! Realtime stats will be published here on the website for all you market aficionados!

LWC Removal

We will be removing the LWC plugin this weekend. GriefPrevention is well-suited for individual protections and LWC offers no real benefit to our players. Bottom line: if you have any chests or other protected items outside of a claim, they will be unprotected by Friday 12 February!

Two new Ranks Added!

Two new ranks have been added! Players now have a pathway to keep XP (Legend) and gear (Immortal) on death! Be sure to head over to the server information page to learn more!

Leaderboard and 1.16.5

A new leaderboard is up and live! In the upcoming months we will be implementing a monthly reward system for the top players! Additionally, we will be updating the server to the latest version: 1.16.5 next weekend.

Map expanded to 8,000 blocks

We expanded the world border out to 8,000 blocks. This means the nether was also expanded to 1,000 blocks. We're going to be watching server performance and will probably take the server down in the upcoming week to do a world border fill to load all the new chunks for better performance. More info will be pushed out through the in-game messages. Stay tuned.

Server Updated to 1.16.4

The server and all supporting major plugins have been updated for 1.16.4.

Spawn Development

We're doing a massive overhaul on spawn! Of particular note, the player shops area is getting a face lift to offer more space and a better layout for finding your favorite shops. We've already plotted a course to expand spawn and hope to have it laid out and built by the end of next month. If you have a stall that will need to be relocated, open a ticket so an admin can help you get everything shifted over. Don't mind the construction - it won't last long!

Midas Coins

The first batch of Midas Coins have been randomly scattered in unique locations throughout the map! A Midas Coin is a special currency that is worth 64 EB and can be redeemed at the main spawn exchange. Some of the locations are challenging to find, but we think it is totally worth it. Do you think you have what it takes to find one of the most valuable items on the server? If so, you might strike it rich! Come join the hunt!

The Dynmap is back up!

The map is officially back online! We updated a lot of the plugins on the server today and 1.16.3 is singing right along so far! There has been a noticeable improvement in resource utilization which equates to a more consistent TPS and much more lag-less experience! See you inside!

Server Update to 1.16.3 and Dynmap Issues

The server was updated to 1.16.3! Along with the update has come some issues with the Dynmap. At this time, there is no information about when the map will come back up. Feedback has been provided to the developer's Github issue tracker. Everything else is working just fine!

Server Update to 1.16.2

The server will be updated to Minecraft 1.16.2 this Saturday, 29 August. With this update comes a load of performance improvements and bug fixes. There is also a new Mob: The Piglin Brute. Join in on the fun and come loot some Bastions with us online!
