A bit of a delay...

So we know we have said a few times that this update will take about a month to complete but we have ran into a bit of a delay. The people who are building our new prison has had some draw backs on their builders and wont be able to finish it until next week. Also I am working on a new item system but I can't really do anything because I don't have any one to help test them out so I can get an idea of damage levels and things like that for them. So if anyone would like to help out on that please reply to this thread or send _Krono a DM. Sorry for the delay but hopefully we can start getting things done by next week.

Thanks,

New Nether!?

So along with all the other changes coming in the big update we are changing the way the nether is generated. Here is a quick look into what it will look like. Oh and don't worry it will support 1.10 blocks.

New Items!

So I have been hard at work messing with some ideas for some of the new items coming to the server in the next update. Here is a quick spoiler of one of the new weapons called the "Shank". The "Venom" enchant on it gives a poison effect to anyone hit with it. This gives a simulation of the Shank being rusty and causing infection. Also in this picture you can also see one of the tiers to the new item system.

The Big One?

Hello everyone we hope everyone had a great 4th of July! Now that it's over we have resumed on the big updates for the server. We know we haven't provided you guys with a whole lot of information about these big changes so we figured we would share some info now. So first up we need to say we will be doing a full server wipe excluding ranks between A-1 and C-10. This means inventories, balances, private chests, and even the world itself will be reset. Now as we mentioned before anyone who are the ranks A-1 through C-10 will not experience a rank reset but if you are a Escapist or up you will be set to the new levels that are being added between C-10 and Escapist. These ranks will have much more to offer with plenty incentive to continue on your adventure. We do not want players thinking this reset is for the worse when really this will give us a chance to correct all of our previous mistakes. Some examples would be stablizing the economy, rebalancing items, and even gives us the chance to update the terrain generator for faster chunk loading and new biomes. We believe this is a step in the right direction and hope all of you stick around for the final result.

Thanks,

A Quick Teaser....

Here recently we made a thread on how the server is going to be going under big changes in the near future and ever since that post we have been working on new features and such. Well after several days of work we have decided to give a quick little teaser for everyone to see. We won't tell you what it is but you can always guess :p.

Rules of PVP and Engagement
1.Only engage another player if attacked. The player must have a clear motive/intent of killing a guard.

2.Do not engage a player if they simply punch but warn them first and if done again jail for the appropriate time.

3.If two players are engaged in PVP, jail Both players for the appropriate time. If the players are in possession of contraband take the appropriate action [freeze] then proceed with the marked jail time.

4.If a player is attacked and does not fight back, freeze the attacker and proceed with the appropriate jail time.

5.If you witness another guard get attacked take the necessary action and then jail for the marked time.

6.Do not target and purposely bait players.

7. If you are attacked multiple times by a player even after their death [constant PVP] you may jail for a tier two offence.
Rules of Freezing Players
1.Freeze players if they are if you know they are in possession of contraband and take appropriate action

2.Freeze multiple players in engaged in PVP to control the situation. This means only freeze the players who have only attacked/hit other players.
Rules of Contraband
Contraband includes: Fishing Rods, Diamond Items [Tools,Armor,Diamonds..Etc], Lingering Potions, Splash Potions, Harmful Potions, Golden/God Apples,Weapons, and Tipped Arrows.
1.If a player is caught with contraband you are to freeze the player, if they don’t forfeit the item you are to enter their inventory and take the contraband along with other contraband they may possess.

2.Instead of forfeiting their contraband players may choose to pay a fine of 5,000$ or 10 CrptoCoins per item.

3.Keep the player frozen until the correct payment is received. If the player does not indicate whether or not they wish to pay the fine you are warn them before taking their items.

4.If the player chooses to pay the CrptoCoin method, you are to take the player’s contraband, unfreeze they player, and return them when the correct payment is received....

Improvements Coming Soon!

Hello everyone! Here recently we have been noticing a few weak points in the server where the server becomes boring or confusing or even pointless to continue on. Well here on The Shank Tank that is far from acceptable and we are trying our best to fix it. Now the first thing I want to mention is the ranks within a ward. Currently as you rank up as a prisoner within a ward there is no incentive besides getting to the next ward and therefore it starts to feel pointless ranking up and there is nothing rewarding the players. Well we are currently thinking of ideas to give more incentive and to make our players want to keep ranking up and to stay on The Shank Tank. Now with that out the way I would like to announce that we are currently working on implementing drugs to the server. The plugin is 100% custom to The Shank Tank and there will be no other plugin like it. We could use your help though for ideas for the drugs such as names, effects, commands, and possible crafting recipes. If you would like to help out PM _Krono and he will respond as quickly as he can. Also feel free to add any suggestions down below on this thread.

Thanks,
The Shank Tank
