    Map Details:

    This time around, 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. New to map 20 is a flat overworld allowing for easier warzone PvP and base building.

    Faction Buffer Rules:
    • Just like last map, there is a 20 chunk buffer claim limit from the edge of your base in each direction. Failure to comply in this rule will result in a warning from a staff member. After the warning you will have 12 hours to unclaim any excess claims. If the claims aren't removed in 12 hours a admin or dev will remove them for you. Repeat offenders will be punished as follows;
    • Due to players taking advantage of our buffer rule and looking for a warning on purpose and trying to hold out past 20 chunks for as long as possible. Restrictions will be put in place depending on 2 key factors, the severity of how far out the chunks go and if they knowingly did it. We hold the right to unclaim all claims in the surrounding area if we feel it is severe enough. If it is not severe we will warn the faction. A warning would be a less severe buffer, an unclaim of all the chunks would be a more severe buffer. There is no exception to this rule, if your base is unclaimed due to a mistake on your end we are not at fault.
    • 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.
    • If you are caught extending your buffers with an alt faction, the alt faction will be disbanded, if you are caught for a second time both factions will be disbanded.

    Factions Related Rules:

    #1: Factions are allowed a 20 chunk buffer claim limit from the edge of your base in each direction.
    #2: Factions are allowed a max base size of 10x10, With a max claim size of 30 chunks (This means you can have a max of 160 walls or 20 chunks (so 20 chunk buffer + the base of 10 chunks). If you go past this you will be punished according to the faction buffer Rules.
    #3: Checkboxes are entirely disallowed (This includes wall streaming & or using alts to hear TNT on your wall). First warning is a removal of the checkbox system alongside fortified walls being shortened by 1s for that faction for the day or next day depending on the time. Second warning is 25% of the wealth of that faction being taken. Third warning is a disband, there will be no exceptions to this rule, if you get to the third warning you will be disbanded.
    #4: Towning is disallowed.
    #5: Splitting your factions worth to win more than one prize is disallowed, only one faction will receive the ftop prize. If you are found to be breaking this rule you will be disqualified from the current week and 25% of your wealth will be taken away.
    #6: Scamming is allowed, however, scams involving Irl money or items is not allowed.
    #7: Extending buffers using an alt faction is disallowed.

    #15: Insiding is strictly prohibited (Doing anything malicious towards your own faction for your personal gain or another factions gain, Faction leaders abusing f perms included) doing so will result in at least a 2 week ban (Depending on the severity and time of the inside E.g: Near the end of the map a perm ban may be given out)
    #16: Ally raiding is strictly prohibited if you are doing it with extra f perms or in any way you wouldn't normally be able to as a neutral/enemy
    • 1st Offence: 2 week ban for anyone involved
    • 2nd Offence: 3 week ban for anyone involved
    • 3rd Offence: Perm ban with chance of unban through appeal

    #18: Knowingly playing with blacklisted players and inviting them to your faction may result in a faction disband and or ban to the player involved depending on the severity of the case.

    Disclaimer: These are only server specific Rules, chat and behaviour related Rules can be found here
    https://www.mineheroes.net/wiki/server-rules/these Rules apply to all Servers.

    Faction-Top Rules:

    #1: The area that is calculated as having the most wealth must be inside of a base, this means the spawners cannot be out in the open and must be inside of a base with at least 20 walls with claims. If the walls are broken but your base is protected, as long as there are 20 broken walls you will be safe.
    #2: Hiding base wealth is strictly disallowed, this means spreading out spawners in your buffer, rev layers or randomly placing them in your base in areas that are not obtainable is not allowed.
    Failure to follow these faction top rules will result in a disqualification for that week.

    A new economy has been introduced to the server to encourage grinding and unlock new rewards! You can obtain MobCoins by killing mobs manually or setting up grinders.

    YES! Mob coins can even travel through hoppers and into chests.
    [​IMG]

    MobCoin Commands

    • /mobcoins upgrade - Open the upgrade menu to increase the number of mobcoins you get from various mobs!
    Heads merchant
    Another big request was to implement some benefits to grinding out and collecting MOB heads with the Berserk enchant. Lucky for you, there is now a new /merchant menu to trade in MOB heads for Cash and EXP.

    [​IMG]

    Just type /merchant to access the head trading menu and begin selling those valuable heads!

    Custom Items & Wands
    This reset comes with many custom tools and items that can assist you with many trivial tasks but also enhance game-play. You can find almost ALL of these new custom items in the /shop (under misc section) or in /crates, supply crates or the /token shop

    Faction Inspect
    You can now keep track of what is going on in your faction claims! This is very useful if you believe you are being insided or betrayed. Use the command /f inspect (page) to check recent changes/interactions made to blocks/chests in your claims. Use /f inspect to toggle it from the menu as shown here and then right click any blocks you want to inspect with your fist:
    [​IMG]

    You can check for blocks broken and who took items out or put items into chests.
    Not every block is logged, only valuable and base building blocks.
    This new feature can be expanded on greatly depending on its performance impact.

    Heroic Items:
    • This is a new concept that encourages players to race around the map during SOTW and unlock AWESOME new items. When the server resets on December 1st, there will be enderchests scattered around the worlds (main, end and moon) 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 down the player holding the heroic item. Heroic Items cannot be stored in enderchests, player vaults, or /bin.
    Boss Eggs:

    We’ve added a new feature that we think you’ll love. We have implemented Boss Eggs! To introduce everyone slowly to this new element, only the executioner boss in varying difficulties will be available. Don’t be unalarmed however, as these bosses are meant to be team centered and fought with your faction due to their strength. The rewards will constantly be improved, but here’s a sneak peek at a few of them so far.

    [​IMG]

    With rewards ranging from Iron golem spawners, to Burst 2 pickaxes, we’re sure the boss eggs will be thoroughly enjoyed. As of now, there is only two ways of obtaining these boss eggs, supply crates or crates, however this may be expanded upon in the future.

    Enchant Relics:

    Enchant relics modify how many Custom Enchants can be put on an item. Every time you combine a enchant relic with a tool/item, the max amount of enchantments the item can hold increases by one. Different Ranks will have a max amount of times the items can be increased. The default for now is a max of two per item/tool.

    • To encourage PvP in the warzone, players will now be rewarded for staying longer in the warzone and closer to the spawn!

    • Custom Enchants are enabled on Factions Time, Dream, and Nature; however all combat Custom Enchants have been removed from Apollo. The enchantments range from enchantments to assist in grinding/mining to PvP abilities and boosts. Custom Enchantments are constantly tweaked and improved over time so expect to see updates with new enchantments on a regular basis.
