The sell price of Pumpkin has been increased to $6. The sell price of Nether Wart has been increased to $16. The sell price of Cocoa Beans has been increased to $18. The sell price of Leather has been increased to $2 The buy price of Cow Spawners has been decreased to $70k. The buy price of Creeper Eggs has been decreased to $100k. Squid Spawners have been completely removed from the economy. Silverfish Spawners now drop valuables like diamonds & emeralds. These spawners can only be obtained via Special Crystals & KOTHs. Change Log Maximum Protection / Sharpness The maximum protection / sharpness in Map 18 was Protection 6 and Sharpness 6. We have changed this to a more realistic and traditional system, so the highest obtainable protection level on armor is Protection IV, and the highest obtainable sharpness is Sharpness V. The store will be updated with new rank kits in the coming days. TNT Pouches You can now obtain TNT Pouches These pouches can be used as a very efficient storage device for TNT, you can store a maximum of 40,000 in a single pouch. FTOP Buffer Period There is now a spawner ftop buffer period. What this means is, when you place a spawner in your territory, it will take 48 hours for it to count towards your factions FTOP value. The reason for this change is to stop players from mining down their spawners & placing them down again right before the end of the week to collect their ftop prize without risk of being raided. Harvester Hoes This tool allows you to farm sugar cane much more efficiently. When you break sugar cane with this tool, the cane will automatically go in your inventory. Spawner Cost The cost to mine spawners will now scale up every week. The starting tax will be 5%, and will scale up by 1% every week after the grace period. By the last week of the map, the tax to mine a spawner will be 11%. New Custom Enchants We have added some new custom enchants to the server.
