    Map Versions:
    Factions Mars (Map 18), Factions Apollo (Map 2), OPFactions Zues (Map 4)
    Minecraft Version: 1.8 (1.7 to 1.12 clients can join but gameplay is based off of 1.8)
    Reset Date: Saturday, July 1st, 2017 at 6:00 PM EST - Countdown: http://itsalmo.st/#fac-reset

    World Sizes
    Overworld
    - 15,000 x 15,000 (-7500 -> 7500)
    End - 10,000 x 10,000 (-5000 -> 5000)
    Moon - 10,000 x 10,000 (-5000 -> 5000)
    Nether - 3,000 x 3,000 (-1500 -> 1500)

    Map Details
    This time round, our main goal was to improve existing game mechanics and improve on features we already had. Similar to previous maps all worlds feature flat bedrock at Y:1. The max build height in both the main and end world is 256. The end world has no void and is flat endstone from Y:1 - 40. The corners of all worlds can be claimed. We have added a new world called MOON, which is similar to the end but uses sandstone from Y:1 -40. Building against the border is allowed.

    Faction Rules
    We learned a lot from the last reset and have made changes to make your factions experience better but also to prevent issues and abuse. Here’s what we’ve changed rules wise this reset:
    • Due to players taking advantage of our buffer rule and trying to hold out buffers past the 20 chunk limit as long as possible we have decided to make this an offence based rule. The first offense will be a warning and a 12 hour time frame to unclaim the chunks. The second warning will result in the unclaims being removed without warning. The third warning will result in all faction claims being unclaimed, there will be no exception to this warning.
    • Towning is no longer allowed (Making bases next to other bases). We will give the faction 2 days max to leave for the first warning. The second warning will result in the claims for the second base being unclaimed.
    • During the factions top competition splitting your worth to try and win more then one prize is not allowed and only one faction will be rewarded for every competition we have.
    • Cobble monstering outside of bases is no longer allowed and players who do this and are caught will be punished depending on the size of the cobble monster. The first offence will be verbal. The second offence will result in 2d temp ban to anyone involved. The third offence will be an appeal-able permanent ban.

    Reset Changelog
    This reset consists of enhancements to previous features, bug fixes and of course, many new features for you guys to enjoy:
    • PvP related enhancements removed from Factions Apollo (factions2). Kits with custom enchants on factions2 have been buffed.
    • Printer has been enabled for factions 2 and should work without issues, this is experimental and will be configured over the reset to remove any issues that may come up
    • Alongside printer being enabled autos will also be disabled on factions 2
    • Added automatic hiding of foliage around the player (Long grass, saplings, mushrooms, etc) to remove extra client lag while in pvp
    • New Moon world added to all faction servers. Sandstone from Y:1->40. - Use /warp moon
    • We are now using the vanilla world border alongside the world border plugin to prevent glitching and to make the border more noticeable. TNT/Sand/Ender pearls that go outside of the world border will be deleted and will not work to prevent glitching.
    • Implemented /f claims, this will allow you to view where all of your faction claims are
      • [​IMG]
    • Fixed territory /f perm not allowing unclaiming even if f perm allowed it
    • Fixed allies/neutrals not being able to use doors if fperm allowed it
    • Fixed issue where players with the f perm access could modify f perms in the f perm menu
    • Fixed spawner explosion radius for TNT/Creepers not working correctly, only one spawner would get blown up when it should’ve been the radius of the explosion
    • Fixed spawner drop chance always being 100% when blowing up spawners
    • Fixed /kills not showing the correct top players
    • GenBuckets will no longer mess up on restarts or when you leave the chunks, the tasks will start back up when you re-load the chunks
    • Spawners are no longer protected by blocks, meaning if an explosion happens near spawners the spawners will drop where the explosion happened
    • Explosions are no longer random, which should allow for more specific cannons to be used without issues
    • Implemented new genbucket menu to toggle your genbucket settings. You can open this menu by typing /genbucket
      • [​IMG]
    • If your factiontop value changes while offline you will get sent a notification of the difference when logging in
      • [​IMG]
    • New sethome /f perm that will allow you to block who can set homes in your land
    • New home f perm that will allow you to change who can teleport into your land using /home
    • Changed /f open command to be leader only, this should prevent players from trying to open faction to all players
    • Changed default faction home fperm to be leaders and coowners only
    • Changed default beacon effect fperm to allow allies to get effects
    • Implemented a better check for checking if someone is vclipping
    • A new freecamming patch has been put on that will block all freecams including other exploits such as creeper-aura/block hitting through walls, this is experimental and may need changing, feedback would be appreciated
    • Depth strider will now work on 1.7 clients if you have the mod that allows it to work with the server
    • Fixed issue where factions could use color codes in faction name, also allowed dashes in faction names
    • Fixed /f access not allowing players to interact with anything they should be able to
    • A brand new cannon patch has been put on that should fix any issues and remove a very large amount of lag from cannons
    • Fixed issue with magnet taking too much durability when burst is also on the pickaxe
    • Fixed players not having access to /f status
    • Implemented new /f settings command which is a menu that has a bunch of other useful menus and a place where you can see faction toggles
      • [​IMG]
    • Removed combo enchant to make PvP fights take longer and to make them more enjoyable
    • Lowered blackout chances to make PvP fights less annoying
    • The default tnt fill radius has been increased to 30
    • Entirely fixed obsidiandestroyers path calculations, which would cause certain cannons to clip on blocks and not blow up the correct amount of blocks a normal explosion should blow up, here’s a screenshot of the issue
      • [​IMG]
    • Implemented a new /f upgrades system that will allow players to get more f warps, increase power, exp boosts, and get permanent haste when in your claims
      • [​IMG]
    • Fixed issue that would cause fly to not automatically be enabled when walking into own claims if f map was auto updating
    • Fixed bazooka enchant being able to blow up item frames
    • Updated all essential messages to show relation colors as well as display the player’s name
      • [​IMG]
    Cannon Server Changelog
    The cannon server was reset a few days ago in preparation of the new factions season. Here are some of the changes:
    • Updated our protection block to work with our new explosion patch, should remove a ton of extra tnt lag
    • Implemented new player schematic system that allows players to manage their own private schematics - /schem save (name)
    • A new worldedit plugin has been put on to handle worldedits to help reduce lag but also to fix paste issues
    • Added genbuckets to experiment with - /genbuckets
    • Redstone will no longer be disabled if the owner of the plot is not online
    • Added new 160RC cannnon to schematics menu - /schem menu
    • Placed TNT will no longer react to other nearby TNT when exploding
    • New plots will no longer deny everyone and /tpa will work as intended
    • Plot chunks are now lined up with the actual minecraft chunks
    • Plots are now 30x30 chunks (480x480 blocks) to allow for more testing
    Factions Top Dragon Egg (F TOP) Tournament
    We will not be issuing out IRL payment rewards for end of map winners for future maps as we’ve found there’s no real competition towards the end of the map. Instead we will reward factions in FTOP for the 1st month with a Dragon Egg and buycraft vouchers on Monday 31st of July at 6PM EST
    • 1st place:
      • Rare Dragon Egg (only one per map!) The Dragon Egg will be worth $10 million /f top and feature a special ability, meaning when it is placed within a factions land, every member of that faction will receive a 5% Sell Boost to the /shop. This will give you a massive advantage over opponents.
      • Exclusive [TopFaction] tag for everyone in the faction for the rest of the season
      • $250 buycraft voucher towards the faction owner
    • 2nd place:
      • $200 buycraft voucher towards the faction owner
    • 3rd place:
      • $150 buycraft voucher towards the faction owner
    • 4th place:
      • $100 buycraft voucher towards the faction owner
    • 5th place:
      • $75 buycraft voucher towards the faction owner

    Riperoni, first comment; post was made two minutes ago.

    Really good update that fixed all the annoyances on factions. Thank you!
    As well as, Damn vouchers for shop? amazing. Mineheroes haven't done vouchers since cc.

    Also, there is new rules so don't forget to read it. However, glad they got rid of those cobblemonster bases.

    Yet, they have yet to even implement EZ exp, the most needed command so great update.
    I also love how every1 is gonna say the same thing
    Nice Updates!

    If there is a lack of competition why not make the rewards for f top attainable at the end of the season? Will there be no rewards for being f top after the first month of the season?

    Looking forward to the reset, one question/suggestion i have is about how /f claims works. I know it shows you the x and y to your claim but what block would that show up as in accordance to the chunk? Also for my suggestion it would be to add the world in which it is in(assuming that when you do it it shows all of your claims and not just the ones from the world you are in).
