Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners

We're saying goodbye to easter, but we're not saying bye to weekend updates. Of course, we're going to give you all another update. Let's get into it;

Generators & Meteorites!
"Safe" Meteors
Bug Fixes

Generators & Meteorites!
Everyone knows and loves our generators, but we thought we could do a little more to make them perfect. On the next sever reboots you will notice two new additions/changes.

part 1.
Your crude ore will generate a little differently physically. Everything is actually the same, however, the ore will be visually different. We noticed that ore wasn't being broken at all the first stages. Thus, we've made it so the stages change after a certain amount of ore is generated.

for example, a crude ore with less than 25 stacks will show the second phase
less than 100, the third phase
and so on.
the final phase, possibly at something like 500-1000 will show the actual ore.

This will give an easy visual indicator as to how many ores you actually have generated.

part 2. - Meteorite ore generators!
Most importantly and more exciting, this update is definitely going to solve our issue with players sitting in mines for hours.


You will soon hear meteorites spawning in the maps. Working the same as your ore generators/crude ore, these spawn in similar to meteors, only they spawn more often. Then perodically, there will be a meteorite shower, where tons of these little meteorites spawn everywhere.

One of the best parts about these meteorites is that anyone can mine it at the same time as others. These blocks are completely personal and doesn't show other players breaking them.

Some enchant's that won't work...
Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

After the long process of denying 42 pages of staff applications, it's finally time to start over. Like spring cleaning, this is application cleaning. To everyone who has received a denial message in their notifications, this isn't the end of the line for you all.

Everyone can now post a new staff application!

May the odds be forever in your favour and good luck to you all!

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Oh boy, has it been a busy week with the exciting addition of SHIVA now auto banning amongst many other things, however, that isn’t stopping us from bringing you a huge update this weekend! @melsha has been working nonstop to bring you these updates which you can look forward to after your planet reboots today!

Additional Mining Levels!
The Enforcers
Confimation for Purchases
Enchant Adjusments
Buycraft Art
20% Off Sale

Additional Mining levels
That’s right 102’s, you best get back to grinding because after the upcoming reboots you'll have some extra workload. With a high demand from the late levels, the number of players begging for more only increased and we couldn't leave you all hanging, so I give to you all, more mining levels!

103 (Tinkerer Mastery)
Once you hit this level you will gain a permanent buff with the tinkerer giving you more energy for your unloved gear!

104 (Tp Cooldown)
Once you hit this level you gain a permanent reduction in your tp times whether it be /spawn, /cells, etc.

The Enforcers
We heard your cries for Wardens at Prismarine mine, but we thought they might be a little too overpowered for the Prismarine mine. Thus, we've decided to create a middle man of the guards and wardens. He is a little stronger than your typical guards, but weaker than the warden.

After these upcoming reboots @XsSlayeR3 and I will be replacing a good portion of the guards in the Prismarine mine, we may also do some rearranging to their placements.

Confirmation for Purchases
As chargebacks became a growing problem, we needed to get it sorted out asap. With this update comes a new era to purchasing. As some of you cosmicpvp players are accustomed to, we are adding in a similar confirmation system for purchases....

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

The time has come, step right up if you're ready to watch with me as hacker count decreases and authentic players finally feel safe and secure.

It's been a long time coming. Roadblockers from; important updates, my USA trip and other pressing issues, we put off the addition of auto-banning. However, we're finally ready to take the plunge.

I introduce to you all, SHIVA. As previously mentioned, this here is a passive anti-cheat. This means its intention is not to stop you from breaking the rules. It just detects and bans you. However, with having a passive anti-cheat we had to keep NCP as our aggressive one, which does stop players from cheating (to a degree).

For those who aren't aware, SHIVA is one of the best anti-cheats out there at the moment and I can confirm that there won't be many, if any incorrect bans. As per usual, if you feel you have been banned wrongfully, post a ban appeal. If you have been banned by SHIVA, post a SHIVA ban appeal.

I'm not sure about you all, but I'm excited to see it in action. Be aware hackers, your days are numbered!

Swinging When Fighting
NPC Skins & Warden bug
Lobby Selector Update

Swinging When Fighting

Previously your arm would not swing on other client's screens when you fought them and/or hit blocks. This has been corrected.


Npc Skin changes & Warden Bug Fix

As I was away and came back, I noticed some of our new npcs weren't wearing their correct uniforms. Thus, with this comes a makeover to our newer npcs; The Warden, Mason,...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

As some of you may have noticed, I have personally been..well non-existent for the past week. For those who didn't notice, well, I'm saddened. Anyhow. For the past 11 days I have been in the US (I live in Australia) doing a camp. It was a very intensive camp, meaning all of those days were action packed with going to NASA and both Universal Studios and 2 of the Disney's in Orlando, Flordia. So with that, I am just here to inform that I am finally back from this trip and ready to take over again.

Thankfully whilst I was gone, @XsSlayeR3 took my place in assisting the community and did a stellar job at doing so. Make sure to thank him for his hard work!

If you have any questions or any issues, let me know. You guys have all ears!

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

@melsha has been doing his usual coding his fingers off and decided he couldn’t wait till the weekend to get these updates out to you so here is a rundown of what you can expect after your planet reboots today!

  • Contraband loot table rework
  • Ores in mines
  • Notable bug patches

Contraband loot

We decided to have a word with the cosmic gods as to why they were only giving you guys 300 ores from something as rare as contrabands, you will no longer have to worry about this as you will now get 1000 of the respective ore from your contrabands!​

Ores in mines

We have heard many cosmonauts complaining that when mining you feel you aren’t getting rewarded as much as you should be for your hard efforts, to fix this you will now notice that when mining the amount of ores you gain has been buffed ever so slightly across the board yes that includes you level 102’s​

Bug patches

So you cosmonauts over on Sovereign may have noticed you gained an extension to your shop with the addition of the new shop keepers, there was an issue with the area making it so that you would not be able to /pv while you was in this area, this has now been fixed.​

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

It has been another busy week, but as always that isn’t stopping us from bringing you another midweek update! @melsha has been working nonstop to bring you these updates which you can look forward to after your planet reboots today!

  • Wardens
  • More Cells!
  • Carpenter Rework
  • Notable Bug Patches

Wardens

Wardens are guards that are extremely dangerous and should never be toyed with. They have been hired to watch over the Coal and Iron mines to protect prisoners from bandits who were causing problems.


More Cells!


That’s right we know you have been begging us to give you more cells now and as you may have noticed over the past few days the tier 5 section of your cells have gained an extension! After the reboot you guys can look forward to the following new cells:​

62 tier 5 cells (Section D)
6 tier 4 cells (3 on the end of section A & C)
2 tier 3 cells (Added on to the end of the current lane)
2 tier 2 cells (Added on to the end of the current lane)​

Carpenter Rework

The Carpenter has decided that he is no longer going to be so picky about what items he sells to you cosmonauts and has decided to bring his friends along Craftsman, Greensman, Mason, Prospector and the Weaver will be coming to /shop and are bringing a whole slew of new goodies for you to decorate your cells with!​

Notable Bug Patches

The issue with guards (Often referred to as the villain bug) has been mitigated.​

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

After our balancing midweek update, we have to let our overworked dev have a bit of a break and give out some minor updates. This weekend is mostly for updates that will make your lives a tiny bit easier, let's get into it, shall we?


Energy Stack Split
Lobbies Added
/Staff
/Find
Cross Planet Messages
Changelog and Bug Fixes

Energy Stack Split
You asked for it and we heard, oh trust me we heard. After seeing planets riot and beg for it, how could we say no?

After this morning's reboots, you will be able to split your energy in half, without a cost! Simply use /extract <Amount> when holding raw energy!

Lobbies Added
To accommodate the increase in player base and the overload of player information on the servers, we have added more lobbies. This will allow more spacing out when planets are full and hopefully, *fingers crossed* take a load off of the planets (no more lag pls).

[​IMG]

/Staff
Although, /staff is one of the most useful commands to staff and players. It just wasn't cutting it. With this update comes the ability to see all online staff from all planets from anywhere.

[​IMG]

/Find
Another addition I find it hard to live without, you would have seen this on cosmicpvp. Use /find <ign> to search for any player to find out where they are or if they are online. This is an exception for op's (Admin+ or anyone in vanish).

[​IMG]

Changelog and Bug fixes
  • Queue used to look like http://i.imgur.com/iNp1tO2.png, it will now show the planet name.[​IMG]
  • Packed ice showed twice in the carpenter.
  • Anytime you took durability damage and no fall damage, your armour would breaks (this happened all the time and when...
