Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

Here we go again with another midweek update. We've had updates coming out our ears for the past two weeks, it's crunch time! All mentioned update will be live after tonights reboots!

2FA in-game
Lobby Queue
Bug fix and changelog


2FA in-game
Yes, that's right, we're giving you some more security. For those who don't know, 2fa (two-factor authentication) is the perfect means to ensuring that your account is secure if you ever do get hacked. You would type in a one-time-use code given by your google authenticator application each time you log in under a different IP address.


Currently, as we are testing out 2fa is it only available to staff members. Once available to the public you can use /auth to enable it and there will be a simple step-by-step instruction for you.

Lobby Queue
Waiting in the lobbies for access to your favourite planet can be a bore. Jumping up and down in the portal or clicking onto the compass every few minutes, you wonder, when will the wait end? With this update, lobbies will show your queue into the server. Giving higher priority to the donors, you will see an estimate of when you will be next to join and how many others are attempting to join that planet.

Bug fix and changelog
  • /f join and /g join should work with player name as well as typing game name.
  • Fall damage will no longer be taken when falling down the cells stairs.
  • When closing pvs you will no longer be taken back to the pv page, it will instantly close.
  • Player will no longer be kicked from the lobbies for inactivity.

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners

What a week it's been, from the small things like /g info aliases to some of the most important additions. You thought it ended at just that? Well, you thought wrong. Here's the last of this week's huge QOL updates, Queued for the next reboot on YOUR planet!

Guard Customization
Door Customization
Door Raids
Cell Signs
Shiva Anticheat

Guard Customization
What better way to hype up cell guards than to make them super customizable? Customising cell guards allows you to tailor your guards to your liking. Personalise your cell guards to make for a strenuous battle. Your enemies will dread the idea of raiding your cell and will ensure a demanding battle will ensue.

When clicking on your cell guards it will open a customised GUI for that guard.

Each tier guard will take only the highest tier gear to it, however, you can apply as many enchantments and as much energy to them as you like.

That gets me into renaming your guards. We couldn't leave them with a plain old name, guards have feelings too you know! Only obtainable through contraband crates and shards, you will find guard nametags floating around the prison very soon.
[​IMG]
It's as simple as explained, right click your guard with the name tag in hand and a gui will pop up for easy guard renaming.

Guards are about to get a makeover!

Door Customization
Doors too? When does the customization end?! Up in discussion for a while now, how could we make doors a more custom feature instead of their usual intent.

After the reboots, you will be able to shift-click your doors to choose who will have...

Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

It's been a crazy week on Cosmic Prisons, from the release of Sovereign, to some Quality of Life updates and we're just getting started! @melsha has been coding his fingers to the bone to get these updates out for you and the staff team and I'm totally stoked to give you a walk through! Here's what you can look forward to after your planet (and the hubs) reboot tonight!

Trainees and Enderchests at spawn
Gang Mods
Mining Sound Update
Global Chat
Fire on Meteors
/Jet
Hub Updates
/Cell Info
Guards in your Inventory
Administrative Updates

Trainees and Enderchests at spawn
Let there be rejoicing in the streets! Starting after your planet reboots, trainees will now have access to one row in enderchests! No, you cannot just access the /echest command, however, we understand that it has been a grind trying to prioritize your inventories while you save up for one of those shiny cells! We figured this would make things a little easier and manageable for those new prisoners joining the community!

Gang Moderators
Your Gang Leader is a busy person, from manipulating the economy, to smokey backroom politics, to sending your foes to their maker, and many of you have made the suggestion to have Gang Moderators who would be capable of inviting and kicking members when your Gang Leader is off dealing with his "business". After your planet reboots your Gang Leader will be able to appoint Gang Mods who will be able to do just that!

Ready to make someone Moderator in your gang? Simply execute /g mod <IGN> to give or remove Moderator status in your gang.

Moderators of a gang are easily identified by the star...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

After some discussion, we've decided you guys need a bit more lovin' this week. We're going to be doing some much-needed additions throughout this week and this is just the beginning of that.

Anti Cheat Improvements
More Cells Added
Jetpack Tweaks
/g info Aliases

Anti cheat improvements
Yes, it's coming, no more waiting! Although.. there's a little more waiting. Recently, our dev got together with the anti-cheat dev and they've made some changes to the current anti-cheat we use.

Here's some fair warning to all you hackers out there; you won't be able to hack anymore.

Hopefully, this will clear up a lot of our hacker issues, especially since later this week *fingers crossed* we will be getting an entirely custom anti-cheat to ensure we're 99.9% hacker free!

More cells added
You guys begged for more cells, how could we say no to such a high demand? After the next reboots 30 more tier 5 cells will be available for purchase.

Jetpack tweaks
Previously, when using /jetpack and then being hit, you would still be able to fly up. This is now fixed so that if you have initiated your jetpack and you are put into combat, your wings will be clipped!



/g info aliases

To ensure we have all options, for all types of people, we have added different ways to search for a gangs information. You can now use any of these options.
/gang info
/gang show
/g info
/g show
/g g
/f show
/f info
/f f

Note: You can now see online gang members!

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

I am jumping in my seat with excitement. Ever since the dev showed me these updates, I've had to cover my mouth so I wouldn't spill all of the secrets! We've been secretly posting little spoilers during the week, but some of these, none would have expected.

Sovereign Planet Release
/Jetpack
2 New Enchantments
/baltop and /gtop
Hover Chat and [Blocks]
Bug fix and Changelog
40% Off Sale


Sovereign Planet Release
Royalty and high classed mates, Sovereign Planet is the one for you. Peasants will not stand in your way, only those with the might, only those with the power, will conquer the server.

Sovereign Planet is the last of the original series. The first three servers are the only planets that will have the OG map layout. As it is the last, we had to give a unique look to it with this elegant spawn that you see in the screenshot.

The first hour of uptime will be VIP ONLY to ensure that the hardcore donors get a smaller headstart and to keep the planet from bursting from all of the pressure. She's only new, we must be careful not to push it to the limits.

/Jetpack
I can hear it now, "Cosmic is P2W!" and yes, yes it is. We have to make sure donors get the best of the best, although it's not a huge advantage, but it's absolutely spectacular and you'll agree with me once you take a look at this.

[​IMG]
A perk only for the tier 5 donors with a 14 minute cooldown, this one's going to be a blast. *I'm punny!*

2 New Enchantments
We couldn't say no to giving pickaxes a bit of love. After all of the armour and weapon enchantments, pickaxes were feeling neglected, so here we are!

Replenish -
Uncommon Enchant
Max Level: 5
Chance to instantly respawn ores as they are broken.


Energy Collector -
Uncommon Enchant
Max...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Oh boy, do we have a treat for you... This update is going to knock your socks off! Some expected it, others not so much. After a few sneaky spoilers from Rob, I'm proud to realise to you today's updates!

Contraband Crates
Meteors
Donor Perks
Bug and Change Log.
20% Off Store Sale!

Contraband Crates
A unique crate, only obtainable by the luckiest of prisoners. A crate better than any you could ever imagine. Bringing together all of the purchasable donor perks and highly contested in-game items, the contraband crate is what all crave.

Currently, contraband crates are only obtainable through meteors (Next topic of discussion) and they come in our basic tiers that we have all become accustomed to.

Simple Contraband
Uncommon Contraband
Elite Contraband
Ultimate Contraband
Legendary Contraband
Godly Contraband



These crates have gear that varies from your desired items and store bought items. Crates will feature;
Armour with Energy / Enchants
Weapons with Energy / Enchants
Pickaxes with Energy / Enchants
Raw Energy

Charge orbs
Shards
Guards
Crude Ore
Ore Generators
Donor Ranks
Chests
Ores
Food
(
and yes, we have to leave some crappy items in to keep it balanced).

Meteors

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's a meteor!...Wait wot? Bet you didn't expect that one. Meteors are going to make the mundane task of grinding a bit more fun. Every 30-60 minutes a chat notification will pop up about the server event of a meteor dropping onto the prison. Remember it takes the meteor some time to crash, watch for it in the sky.

But...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

After last week's huge update, we had to give the dev a bit of a breather. To be fair, I'd hardly call this one a breather. This is more so an update of changes to a lot of our recent additions, here we go!

Crude Stacks
Raid Changes
Cell Stores & Access
New Enchantments
Raw Energy in Shards
Patrol Guards
20% Off Sale!


Crude Stacks

To being that cosmic brand back into play and spice things up, we've added new dimensions to crude ores that make them that much more valuable and worth it.

From now on your crude ores will begin to make fat stacks. I mean that literally and figuratively. The longer you afk your crude ore, the more the last generation will respawn.

that being said, generation times are the same as previously, but this means that you can now afk your crude ore overnight and come back to hundreds of ore to mine up.
[​IMG]

Also, to come with this addition; crude ores CAN give off more energy and a higher shard chance!.

Raid Changes & Cell Stuff
We all knew it was coming, after Rob being unable to keep the spoilers to a minimum, you all knew we'd be looking at how to make raiding a bit more balanced. There's a lot of changes to mention, so here goes nothing!

The most important and noticeable addition is the guard health damage and their stacking.
Guards are now complete tanks, the idea is that raids take forever, but they are possible. They won't hurt as much, but it's a very long process to carry out a raid.

To accompany this guards no longer sit inside of each other. They've learnt some new skills in prison school, so they will sit in their own seats.

You can no longer stack/place too many guards in one area.
Simple = 3x3,
Uncommon = 5x5,
Elite = 7x7,
Ultimate...

It's going to be one to remember.

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

I can't begin to express how excited I am to announce this weekend's update to you all. After testing and testing, all I want to do is spill the tea!

Energy Extraction
The Enchant Rush, New Enchantments.
Scoreboard Additions.
Mining Levels after 100.
Ore Spawn Rate.

Energy Extraction
As It was highly discussed throughout the community, we had to think about how to allow enchants with armour and tools. This is going to be a huge game changer.

Use the command /extract [Number], this will drain an amount of energy from your pickaxe and turn it into Raw Energy, in the form of an enchanted light blue dye.

[​IMG]

Raw Energy can be applied (drag and drop) to all swords, armour and pickaxes to allow the gear to be enchantable. When applied, make your way to the cosmic wormhole. If your gear is surging with cosmic energy, throw it at the wormhole for a chance at receiving one of the various enchantments.

Note: If you have a charge orb on and you extract, you will lose a level from the charge orb.

The Enchant Rush, New Enchantments.
With the introduction of Energy Extraction, we’re delivered with a new means of enchantments. A necessity gets suited up, you mustn't leave a gang member behind. Soon inmates will be swarming the cells with only the most robust and extraordinary gear.

Now similar to pickaxes, you will have a base level of armour and swords. This meaning that depending on your mining level, you will be allowed to wield certain equipment. For example, only players with mining level 90 will be able to use any sort of diamond equipment. This also means that those levels give an advantage depending on how high they are.

Pickaxe levels- Will boost...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Isn't this...weird. An update midweek, what is this madness? Well, it's nothing too dramatic, but I couldn't leave you all hanging. Here goes,

Doors Added to the Carpenter.
Raid Time Extensions.
Villains.
Cell Eviction.
Enchat Failure Removal.

Doors added to the Carpenter.

After all of the many requests, we have added doors to purchase at the Carpenter. Doors are much tougher to break, making Initiating a raid to take much longer the better door you have. Be aware, though, doors are expensive.

Raid Time Extensions.
Previously raids had an hour wait time on them once you completed one. We've slightly adjusted the numbers so your cooldown is dependent on donor rank.

Tier 5: 30 Minutes
Tier 4: 45 Minutes
Tier 3: 1 Hour
Tier 2: 1.25 Hours
Tier 1: 1.5 Hours
Non-Donor: 2 Hours

Villains.
Tired of those pesky villains, taking your lunch money and knocking you around all the time?

With the new stages of Criminal Record, if you are 'Kill on sight' anyone is able to kill you without guards bothering them. Although, you probably won't get a hit in before a guard kills them first.

[​IMG]

Cell Eviction.
Being evicted from cells has been in discussion for a while now and we've finally come to the conclusion.

If no one who is accessed to your cell (including you) logs onto the server within a 7day period, your cell will be placed for sale to all, unless you log in before it's purchased.

At the moment, the items inside will be lost forever, but we intend on creating a collection bin for this.

Enchant Failure Removal.
Although there are still enchantment failures, it will just tell you that you levelled up....

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

This update is going to be short and sweet. Minor, but at the same time pretty huge. Let's not dwell on it and get started, shall we?

Criminal Record
Crude Ore Block Progression
Overhead Health
Small Fix To Raids

Criminal Record
A lot of you have noticed the removal of karma from your scoreboard. Do not fear my friends, we've changed the system a bit and it's definitely for the better!

What is a criminal record?
The basic concept of the criminal record is that;
Your 'karma' or 'record' will NOT reset on death. If you die to a guard (If you hit someone directly in front of one or cause a guard to follow you any other way), he will not let you off the hook once he kills you. Think of it as if, you just got out of jail and you now are on parole for a little while. Once your guard sees that you're alright to let you, he will stop following you.

What are the stages and how to go back to being a neutral citizen?
To go back to being neutral, you need to ensure that you don't engage in any funny business like killing other players or hitting guards.

4. [​IMG]

This will be the replacement of the 'karma' system that you once saw, but works extremely similar so it's not too much strain on remembering how it works. :p

Crude Ore Block Progression
As I promised we'd make them worth it and here it is for you guys, crude ore.

For those who have a generator and crude ore you will notice the dramatic difference, they will now change block types as the crude ore generates into its final form. Each crude ore had 3 generations until its final 4th form. Bare with me, it's a tough concept to explain.

You ARE able to mine...
