Greetings Prisoners!

Just wanted to give you all a heads up letting you know that the queue system is currently undergoing some maintenance and will be operational once our resident genius @melsha has done everything he needs to do :)

If you are new to us and do not know what the queue system is then you can read about it here:
https://cosmicprisons.com/forum/index.php?threads/10044/

I will post updates here, on this post, as and when the queue system is ready to be put back into action!

EDIT 1 11:40AM: Server is going down for maintenance to implement the queue system expect there to be roughly 5 minutes of downtime.

EDIT 2 12:00PM: Planets are back up!! As a little bonus are resident genius @melsha has also thrown in a few extras!

  • When enchanting you will now notice the animation is twice as fast!
  • Zenith /gkit is showing the correct date it was released now :)
  • An exploit with guard placement was mitigated
Greetings Cosmonauts!

Boy have the past few weeks been busy! From Level 105 to Valron. I thought I would make a little thread summing up everything that has happened over the past few weeks.

Before we begin, I just wanted to make a quick apology, in Valron’s announcement I somehow managed to forget to add the update that was the new Leveling Skew!
From now on when you have a mining level which is 5 below the next tier (For example 85) you will be able to mine the next tier ore! This works for all levels and ores MINUS emeralds.
This has since been added to the post but was not originally there and I wanted to make sure you was all informed of this!

Now without further ado let's begin!

Greetings Prisoners!

I cannot begin to explain how excited I am to announce to you prisoners what we have in store for you this weekend! By now, most of us have seen numerous leaks from @Woofless and @TBNRfrags of a certain planet coming to Prisons soon and that time is this evening! So without further ado I present to you Valron Planet!



Valron will be released this evening along with @TBNRfrags Livestream Make sure to watch as he begins his adventure by clicking here!

Please note Valron will be in VIP only mode for the first hour!!

A planet once known for it’s sheer beauty and tropical weather, after years of failed attempts to protect Valron from scavengers draining the planet of it's resources the planet was deemed too dangerous and was abandoned. Many years later the cosmonauts had decided to put some of their most dangerous criminals to work on Valron to profit once more from the rare and vast ore quantities the planet has to offer!

  • New Planet New experiences
  • Changes to Enchanting
  • Meteors and Ore/xp gain
  • Shards and Contrabands
  • 40% Off Sale
New planet new experiences!
Those who choose to take on the challenge of Valron will get to undergo a brand new prisons experience! With a considerably larger map (1500 x 1500), a completely new layout, a brand new spawn and changes to the way you enchant!

Changes to enchanting
With the start of a new planet we have also decided to change up the way you create...
Greetings Prisoners

Just a quick post to let you know we are pushing an update to change the way gear purchased from the Blacksmith is used. After the planets reboot today you will no longer be able to tinker the gear for it’s base value.

This means that gear purchased from the Blacksmith will only be valued by the tinker from the enchants and level of the gear. Rest assured this update is only to help mitigate how players are generating energy into the economy as a few prisoners were using the gear from the Blacksmith as a way to make energy, this does not create a stable economy and so this update will mitigate that.

If you have any questions regarding this update feel free to hop into the teamspeak ts.cosmicprisons.com myself and @ImEmma will be in there for a little while to answer any you may have :)

NOTE: This will only affect gear purchased from the Blacksmith after your planet has rebooted today!

Remember with gkit meteors the tier of gear you will receive is dependant on what tiered pick you mine it with!
At the moment you can only obtain the Zenith GKit from meteorite showers so keep your eyes out to get your hands on this OP kit!

Note: To mitigate large amounts of energy been acquired from tinkering the gkit you will only receive energy based on the level of the gear not the enchants!

Greetings Prisoners!

So many amazing milestones have been achieved and Cosmic Prisons continues to grow and expand, new updates, new content, soon to be resets, and maybe a new planet just around the corner. Part of working with such a great community that continues to grow is to make sure we are re-evaluating what's going on, how we can better assist our community.

First a Congratulations to @XsSlayeR3 for achieving the Rank of Community Manager! You have worked hard to prove yourself to the team and the community and we're stoked to see you tackle a role that we know you will thrive in!

Second @ImEmma has become the first to take on and tackle a new role on Cosmic; Community Specialist! As the Community Specialist she will be focusing on the Community working to make sure that we have a good idea of where we are excelling, where we need to assist more. She has proven to be invaluable in playing the role of the "Community Voice" and we're thrilled to have her dedicate her time to such an important aspect of the server and the Community.

So join me in Congratulating these two as they embark on new adventures and take an exciting step into the future of Cosmic Prisons!

And before you ask, "But ypperin, when's the new planet?!?!?!?!?" I promise it's coming! Patience, and keep your eye on Server Announcements!

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

After hours and hours of hard testing for this weekends update, we're finally ready to release it to you all. With this mornings reboots you can look forward to;

Cells
Enchantment Rework
Bug Fixes and Change log
10% Off Sale!

Cells
I honestly can't wait to release this to you all, you've begged and pleaded for something to ensure your cell trades safety and here it is!

Cell Deeds
Cell Prices
Cell Doors
Cell Favourites
Cell Limitations

Cell Deeds
Finally, it's here! The cell scamming complaints are finally over! I'm definitely going to be breathing easier after this one and so will all of you. Stop holding your breath and take in the fresh air that comes from cell deeds!

Similar to a house key, cell deeds are the key to all you own! Safely trade your cells to friends or foes without worry of scam!

Simply click on your key in the my cells menu in /cells to choose to withdraw your cell deed! The key has all of the information you would need in selling the key;

As you can see, the key has an expiration time of 1 hour. If the cell has not been claimed through the key within 1 hour of it being out, the key will despawn and be given back to your landlord! This means you won't be able to withdraw a new key within the next hour after that.

[​IMG]

Another important note about these deeds; you will not be able to sell them on the /ah or throw them out of your inventory. You can place them in chests, pv's and /trade them.

However, when the cell deed will expire within 3 minutes, you cannot trade or claim it anymore!

Remember, when giving away your cell through a deed, it will keep all items in your cell for the new owner! Take them out before trading if you want them!...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Do we have an update for you! This one is going to be huge, so sit down with a nice cup o' coffee (or juice for the young-ins!) and read away!

Meteor Flares
Didn't see this one coming did you? I know a few of us are really over the introduction of items on the store, but trust me, this one works in favour for all of the prisoners! Introducing the meteor spawn flare!

Purchasable on the server store, spawn this guy in by placing it on the floor in any area in the warzone. The best part about this is that the meteor will be bigger depending on how many prisoners are on the server, so gather up as many bodies as you can to get the best possible out of it!

Vulkarion gkit Flare & /gkit
You guys think we're going crazy now, here's another flare. This one is for your vulkarion gkit. Most of you all know that when you find them spawning in with the meteorite shower, you will get a full set of gear with a tonne of energy on it, however, with this update we've changed it up a little.

[​IMG]
  • Naturally spawned gkits will only give ONE random piece of gear (to your mining level tier) and the potential to unlock the vulkarion gkit (/gkits).
  • Vulkarion Gkit Flares will give a full set of gear and are obtainable through /gkit.
Purchase the Vulkarion gkit on the SERVER STORE to unlock the full access. (There is a 5 day cooldown between uses!)

[​IMG]

Guards, Enforcers and Warden Buff
Didn't think we'd be adding more buffs? Well, you were wrong fellow prisoners!...
