Welcome Cosmic Prisoners

Holy Moly! It's been an incredible few weeks. There have been updates coming out my ears and I'm proud to be releasing another huge update for you all!

Celestial Planet Release
Energy Engineer, Custom Enchantments and Skills
Black Market Sale Limitations
30% Off Celestial ranks


Celestial Planet Release
A planet far from home, one salvaged by humans from the dark underworld. The Celestial planet is home to the outcasts and strange creatures of the Cosmic Galaxy. Do you dare test the players of Celestial and come on top?

And of course, with the increasing player count of the Prisons community, we must accommodate the influx of players by releasing another planet. With the same map as Sahara planet but a completely new reskin and small additions throughout the map, how could you get bored of the scenery?

Energy Guardian, Custom Enchantments and Skills
Did you expect any different? We are the Cosmic brand, how could any of you be surprised to hear about custom enchantments. Although, this isn't any typical custom enchantment system, this is quite a unique experience and I'm going to do my best at explaining it to you all.

In the simplest form that I can use to explain how enchants work. When you mine, you have energy, it will begin at 0% and as you mine for longer, it will increase until it is at 100%. Once your pickaxes energy is capped you will be required to either use a different pickaxe or go to the Energy Guardian (located at the back of
shop).

At the EnergyGuardian, you will throw your pickaxe into the portal to refresh its energy.

Not only will it refresh but it will roll for one of the custom enchantments.

At the moment...
Welcome Cosmic Prisoners

Some have seen the hologram I placed at spawn claiming that using ESC+SPACE glitch or anti-afk will result in a ban. Previously this had been a PERM ban. The staff team and I have discussed that this may be too harsh and have decided to change the ban duration.

12. Esc + space jump glitch.
This glitch allows the player to jump up and down infinitely, bypassing the afk kick system. If you do this, it will result in punishment.

First Offence: 7d tempban
Second Offence: 30d tempban
Third Offence: Perm ban.



To those who are currently PERM banned from using the glitch, you can re-appeal and I'll unban you. However, you are on the second strike if you had been banned for this before.

Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

As we previously had mentioned, the server will be resetting this weekend. It's now time for me to give you guys the quick rundown!

SMALL CHANGES
There's many awesome changes and differences with this reset. We can't have bored prisoners, so we've added a few things for your needs.

-A lot of guards have been removed from higher tier mines.
-You can now ESC when opening a shard to have it drop the reward in your inventory.
-Use /bump if you are stuck, it will hit you up out of the floor.
-Every food will fill your hunger. Dependent on the food if will give you different saturation.
-Hunger doesn't kill you if it's too low.
-Players can now click on links that admins send in the chat.
-If your item sells from ah and you aren't in the spawn, money will no longer instantly retrieve back to your inventory/balance.
-/ignore should be working as intended.
-If you have a full inventory and open a shard, rewards that fall to the floor will be available to only you for 30 seconds.
-/buy command, links you back to buy.cosmicprisons.com
-Money notes from selling ores from ( outside of spawn) stack while mining.
-/help command, links you to a guide on the forums.

LARGER CHANGES
There are too many smaller changes that I can only go into detail about the larger ones. These changes are what everyone's been asking and begging for, so here we go!

Map and Planet Name
Alpha Ranks / Titles
Donor Ranks
Check Point Levels
First Hour VIP Only
Idle Kick
Player Vaults
Compass In Lobbies



Map and Planet Name

We couldn't bore you guys with having the same map. Our lovely build team has recoloured the map to make it look more like a desert, or as I would say like a carrot threw up on the map. Hopefully, that'll keep you guys entertained for a while.

To accommodate with the map looking like a desert, we've named this planet to Sahara Planet!...
Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

As most of you have noticed, the lag on the server has majorly decreased, however there are few lag spikes that remain. Our fellow dev @melsha has come up with a *hopefully* complete solution to this!

Now the bad news is that we are putting the server down for maintenance. The downtime will likely be 4-6 hours.
We will be going down at 11:35pm CST and There will be a notification when we go back up again.

Thank you guys for being patient and understanding this as we make some major fixes to the backend of the server! If you'd like to come and chat with me, hop on the teamspeak! ts.cosmicprisons.com
Welcome Cosmic Prisoners.

Now I have some good news and some bad news and it sucks to have to break that sort of news to you guys. After hours of discussion between the admins and owners we've decided that its best if we push the reset for next weekend.

Why is it delayed?
We had an overload of stuff that NEEDED to get done for this reset. Without having all of that ready, the reset just wouldn't work out. The overload of players was too much for our server to handle, so there's intense lag going on until we get more servers up for player flooding.

What does this mean?
The delay means that we will have more time to make sure the reset and updates coming are working smoothly and are perfect. To have this time is super valuable because we are able to get more out and have it looking nice. Although it does suck to have it pushed back, its the safest option for everyone.


Donor Ranks

As some have noticed, donor ranks have been added to the server store. As it says in red bold, if you purchase a rank it WILL NOT come through until the reset. Don't stress if you purchase a rank and you don't see it. You will have it, if it doesn't come with the reset, just post a purchase help thread and I'll get it sorted for you.

I apologise thoroughly for the inconvenience this may have caused for some, but we are so limited here. If we did the reset now It'd break a lot and just end in disaster. I appreciate you guys being patient and if you have any further questions for me hop on the teamspeak @ ts.cosmicprison.com

Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

It's the news you've all been waiting for. The updates you've all been begging me to give. It's finally here for you guys and what a better time than to give this to you guys as we head into the Christmas season!

[Mining] & [Balance]
Hitting Players
New Cells
Tping to Cells
Decrease in % to get shards
/Rules


[Mining] & [Balance]

Just like your [item] command, these commands are here so you are able to show off everything you possibly could imagine! REMEMBER ALL MINES HAVE BEEN OPEN!



[​IMG]

Hitting Players

You can finally fight back with all strength and might that you have! You are now able to fight players back with any item in hand once hit by a sword!

New Cells
Just about every player has begged and pleaded for new tier 5 cells, we couldn't just ignore that. With that being said, 60 new cells have been added. (20 per block)
[​IMG]

With that good news, there's also a small bit of bad news. Once all tier 5 cells are taken, we will not be adding anymore. This will encourage players to get their hands on the higher tier cells, they are much bigger after all.

Tping to Cells
Mostly because we've all have a bit of laziness, no longer must you walk the extra mile to your cells prisoners! just type /cells and click on the note called 'My Cells' and you can teleport straight to your cell from spawn!

[​IMG]

Decrease in % to get shards
It was honestly insane how quickly players were getting stacks of shards from the coal mines, so of course we're not going to let everyone run around the place having a whole inventory of shards....
Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

What a crazy few weeks its been. So much has been going on that I can barely remember what I had for dinner yesterday! And of course, you guys know we've been working hard on bug fixes and updates, yet it seems the lists are endless. Today we have a few new additions for you guys!

Change-log:
  • Ores now have individual durability. When you mine one and you are blocked by a player, the block stays at the damage you previously did before you stopped mining.
  • Gold and below Pickaxes are purchasable in shop.
  • Pickaxes no longer have durability damage.
  • You will no longer receive a wooden pickaxe on death.
  • NPCs are now viewable to 1.8.8 and below.
  • Guards previous skin is back.
  • Guards will only instantly kill you after one hit if they physically see you.
  • Any/all shards can be received from any mine. Depending on which tier the mine depends on the % chance on receiving certain shards.
  • The parkour from the back of the map & the ufo parkour has been removed.
  • /ah is now working as previously intended, however a revamp is still to come.
  • New word filter added.
  • Small changes to the /spawn look & Christmasified look
-Pickaxe mining leveling change, you now begin by mining with your fist and work up to using pickaxes.
Wooden pickaxe - lvl 10
stone pickaxe - lvl 30
Gold pickaxe - lvl 50
Iron pickaxe - lvl 70
Diamond pickaxe - lvl 90


A crazy amount of changes, but it doesn't stop here. @melsha is working on some very important updates for you guys coming as soon as possible! Look out for more and get hyped for whats in store!

Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

I'm more than happy to see you all having a good time playing on the server. I've been seeing a lot of alliances and enemies being made daily, mining and cell building.

However, even though we're all having loads of fun, we must remember that we're still in alpha/beta. Thus, there are some bugs to be expected. Our dev @melsha has been working hard for the past couple of days to fix a few of our issues and I'm here now to let you guys know what's been fixed and what you guys should look forward to. Let's get into our fixes;
Deflated money
/hub
/Spawn countdown
Tabbing
Attacking Without a Sword
Ore Respawn Delay
[Item]
Rubberbanding and Pvp Lag


Deflated Money
Money has been deflated by 100. If you had $1, it has become $0.01.

This does not effect or change anything but the way that money looks. You still are at the same balance and money levels, so don't have a panic attack guys!

/Hub
For those OG Cosmic players and for those who are all used to typing /hub instead of /lobby.

/Hub is now accessible from the prisons server. No longer will you need to type /lobby. ;)

/Spawn countdown
You will now receive a 10 second countdown when teleporting to spawn.



Tabbing
You are now able to tab players names after a command.



Attacking Without a Sword
You will now be notified that you need a sword to attack a player.
[​IMG]


Ore Respawn Delay
The "difficult" section of mines now has a 5 second delay and the "easy" section of mines have a 10 second delay.



[Item]
Iteming items...
Welcome Cosmic Prisoners!

I hope you've all been excited about this server. I know I have, but that's not what I'm here to talk about. I'm here to do an introduction on myself and explain to you guys what I'm doing here.

A bit about me
Some of you may remember me as the previous Helper, Moderator, Ban team and then Administrator of CosmicPvp. For those who don't know me, I'll start from the beginning. In 2014 I met ypperin through a server that I was a helper on, when she came in, she took over as Community Manager. We worked together and grew close on that server, when in the beginning of 2015 she left to be full-time on Cosmic. Thus, I followed her.

Where have I been?
From April 11th 2015 - August 15th 2016 I was loyal to Cosmic. For the past few months I've been working on other servers and learning from being away from what I was accustomed to. Now I'm back and ready to get started over here on CosmicPrisons.

My Role and what I do
My role currently will be Jr. Admin. I'm here to help with many different things. Some being; Bug fixes and assisting the growing community and staff team. I'll be around mostly in the evening in the Australian timezone (GMT +11) which is usually in the early AM for a lot of you. However, I always respond and will be available to all of you for any means.

I'm excited to see where this will go and to watch the community grow. So, I'd like to thank you all for joining and being apart of this experience with me.

Emma.

P.S
Here's a bit about me and my personality.
-I work the same as ypperin does and I strive for this server to be as well done as CosmicPvp.
-I like colours, but usually only wear black on black.
-I'm a neat freak,...
