Hello DiplomacyCraft users. Today I'm going to discuss many new things that have happened, and I'm going to announce some new changes before the restart/opening of Diplomacy! Some prices are higher, things have been disabled, and certain things harder to get. Below I will be explaining why that is, so you can understand.
New ranks! (RANKS WILL TRANSFER OVER) - Once you come on you will notice tons of new ranks!
POT PVP - Right when you first wanna go pvp, theres something you will notice! All the kits have been 100% balanced, no more OP Apples, OP armour, etc. You also don't get all the kits below you anymore either! you only get your rank's, and the rank's below. OP Apples are 50k each, however with farms and spawners its very easy to gain! Our main goal was to make the server more oriented towards Pot PvP now.
Lava Flow - Lava flow is now permanently disabled! You may be wondering, why? and theres only 1 solid answer to that! GENERATING WALLS! Having lava flow, players can very easily generate wall after wall (cobblestone walls that is) making it extremely hard to raid! Therefore if the lava can't flow, the walls won't generate.
Hopper Price (NON CRAFTABLE) - So once you get in-game, you will notice that the eco has shifted A TON! Reason being, we based it off of ways to make money, so its more challenging. The reason why hoppers are expensive is because making grinders is a good way to make money. So you may still be sitting there wondering why they are so expensive and NON-CRAFTABLE. The best way to make money is to make a 2x2 base (2 chunk by 2 chunk) and dig it all out down to bedrock, yes it takes a long time, BUT not with a beacon (read the next update below). Now imagine, a cactus farm from bedrock to sky limit, 2 chunk by 2 chunk, and 32 cactus sells for $120. So imagine that to sky limit! easy money if you ask me. So with disabling hoppers, people aren't able to AFK for long amounts of time generating the cactus, because you would have to move to catch the cactus, unless you make a water system which is boring! So having hoppers, its fast and efficient allowing you to be able to AFK.
Beacon - When you come online you will notice that the beacons are also VERY expensive, and as I mentioned the whole hole idea for the 2x2 base, having haste and an efficiency-5 pickaxe makes it go by very quick, so we made them expensive, but not TOO expensive, but affordable.
Money - Overall you will notice farms and spawners are very great way to make some money!
