The rules for the contest are as follows:

  • Any art submitted must follow the contest theme.
  • You may do your drawing physically (i.e. on paper) or digitally (i.e. on Photoshop, paint.net etc.)

When the server resets on December 1st, there will be 9 enderchests scattered around the worlds (main, end and moon) (3 in each world) containing new Heroic Items! These are super OP items that you can take advantage of such as Burst 2 (5x5 mining pickaxe), Protection 6 Armor and more!
    • Holding these items will give you the ultimate advantage however, players will be able to track the location of Heroic Items with the command /heroicitems even if they are hidden away in chests or the player is offline.
    • This will encourage others to hunt...

Since releasing our new Minigames HUB, it’s time to beef it up with some new games for you all to play. The MineHeroes team are proud to present Memory Build! The objective of this minigame is to replicate as accurately as possible from memory a small build shown to you before time runs out. You can play the game by joining the minigames lobby and selecting the NPC or type /server mb from any server on the network.


Summary

Up to 12 players will be shown the same build on their 7x7x7 plot and have 10 seconds to view the build. When viewing time is over the build disappears, and the players have 40 seconds to rebuild what they saw. Players will be given the exact number of blocks/materials. When the timer runs out, all players will be switched to Spectator mode. Then, Gerald the Ghast will scan all builds and the player's score as a percentage will appear. The player with the lowest % accuracy will be shot by Gerald, exploding their build and knocking them out the game.

Memory Build contains 30 rounds. The rounds progress as follows,
  • Round 1-5: Easiest difficulty builds to replicate.
  • Round 6-14: Medium difficulty builds to replicate.
  • Round 15-30: Hardest difficulty of builds to replicate.
Should all the players replicate the build perfectly, Gerald will be impressed, and nobody will be eliminated that round. The last player alive wins the game!

Maps

A big thankyou to @TeamFractal for producing these awesome maps, aswell as the hundreds of small builds needed for this game to run.

Hello Heroes!

If you haven't found out already, Survival has been reset! A bunch of new content has been implemented onto the server, and we've heard your guys suggestions and have made the server to keep most of you happy.
This does mean that the previous world has been wiped, and everyone is given a fresh chance to dominate the world! Below is the list of stuff that should be kept upon reset.

  • All Kits & Ranks.
  • All purchased perks (Fly, night vision, etc).
  • All token shop purchased perks and cosmetics (Titles, particles, etc).
  • Tokens & Gems
Of course, we can't just reset a server and not add anything new, so I'll jump right into the content we've added this map.

Check out the new spawns! Thank you @TeamFractal for building these incredible structures. We have two survival spawns and a new /warp xp, /warp mob and /warp pvp to show off.

Custom Enchants
After some consideration, it seems as though most of you want custom enchants that don't affect pvp. So we have put together 10 new custom enchantments that shouldn't effect pvp.

Even though Fertilizer isn't a new enchantment, it was rather useless before. Fertilizer's chance of activating has increased by a bunch, but also now works in a radius!
Level I activates a 1x1 area (1 block)
Level II activates a 3x3 area (9 blocks)
and Level III activates a 5x5 area (25 blocks)
Here's a video to demonstrate what I mean:[​IMG]...
Hey MineHeroes,

Minigames for MineHeroes has been a hot topic over the past few months. To cater for this expansion we’ve decided to introduce a new HUB to the network specifically for current and future Minigames. As you can see @TeamFractal have done an exceptional job with the new lobby and @AJHandler with the development!

[​IMG]

Test your agility on the new parkour system and beat your friends times. This should be coming to the main lobby soon, with prizes for the top speeds! From now on, all current and future minigames will be accessible only through the new minigame lobby.

Party System

Furthermore, with the introduction of the new lobby the new party system is here! Simply use the new party system (clock on new lobby) to ensure you join the same game as your friends.

[​IMG]
Interact with the different options in the party settings to start a party, invite friends, kick and disband. When you're in a party, all members will be taken to the game the party leader selects automatically!

Cosmetics & Chests

Cosmetics all across the network have received a huge overhaul, and we now offer Pets (32 variations), Particles (21 variations) and Titles (47 variations).

[​IMG]

All of the new cosmetics are unlocked using the new /chests. Earn chests by winning minigames (given randomly based on your Hero Level), buying them on the server store or by purchasing them for 2500 Gems.

The new chests are tiered from 1 star up to 3 stars. The higher star value your chest is, the better the reward you’ll get from unlocking it! You can view the star value for each...
Hey Heroes!

Just a quick note that survival will be resetting this weekend on Friday at 7PM EST (27/10/2017)
http://itsalmo.st/#survivalreset

Everything will be wiped, excluding the following:
  • Global currencies (such as Tokens and Gems)
  • Ranks
  • Kits, Perks and Cosmetics (so if you have purchased fly this map, you will keep it the next map)
A full update post will be made on the day of the reset, detailing the new content we have for you guys.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask below. You can also give your opinions on stuff that can be changed this map (however, take note that we have looked into your previous suggestions and may have already implemented it for this current map).

Extra notes & FAQ
  • Items inside your enderchest or playervault will also be wiped.
  • The server will remain 1.8.9
  • The main world is vanilla.
  • Factions will disband after a certain period of inactivity next map.
  • This is the 'big' reset for survival this year (so it can be considered survival mhv4 if you will).
