Hey there Heroes & Villains! There are three new revamps coming your way! This announcement is split into three sections and will cover all the new features and changes for prison, gkits and voting! -=+=- Prison Revamp Prison will release on March 30th at 6pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). Spoiler: Builds McPrison’s spawn has been brought back and refurbished to fit the Arkham theme. All mines and areas are connected in the same large build, rather than being split into sections only accessible via warps. Spoiler: Crates Two new crates have been added - the global crate and the prestige crate. The global crate allows you to redeem Global Crate Keys that you get from gkits. You can find out more under the Gkit Revamp section below. The prestige crate allows you to redeem Prestige Crate Keys that you get from prestiging. Vote, Uncommon, Rare, Mythical and Legendary crates will no longer give annoying items like armour, and will give purely useful items. Spoiler: Mines All mines are now of the same size (50x50, 60 blocks deep) and are bigger than before. The long standing issue where mines had large holes and unbreakable patches is now resolved. AK now has its own mine. It contains the same blocks and sell prices as Flamingo mine, but only AKs can mine there resulting in less traffic. There are now three floating sell signs in front of the warp point of every single mine. No longer will you have to go hunting for sell signs with every warp. The PvP mine has now been readded. Anyone who purchased private mines in the previous Prison will have it transferred to this revamp. Spoiler: Gems The long-standing e-token and etshop system has been removed. Instead, all enchantments are obtained by redeeming gems. You can get random gems for every 10k blocks you mine, from crates and from other players' chest shops. Clicking a gem in your hand will allow you to select an omnitool to apply the enchantment to, and to select specific amounts of the gem you wish to redeem. Gems also serve another purpose - upgrading backpacks. Backpack gems will add 10 slots to your backpack each, and there is no limit to the capacity your backpack can have. Spoiler: Enchants The pure enchantment has been removed, as you will no longer get random enchants from mining and instead get gems. Laser has been changed and no longer mines in a diagonal or X formation. It now mines an entire layer like jackhammer, but instead digs vertically downwards from its point of activation. These are the max levels for every enchant: Fortune 10k Efficiency 5k Explosive 5k Jackhammer 5k Laser 5k Enrage 5k Merchant 5k AutoMine 5k AutoSell 5k Regrowth 20 Haste 10 Speed 5 Spoiler: Ranks Mines are now ranked A through Z rather than being named. /rankupall has been readded with a confirmation menu, and will also /prestige you. Prestiging will increase rank prices by 50% each time, which you can check with /rankprices. This will also give you a permanent increased sell multiplier of x0.1 and 3 Prestige Crate Keys. Spoiler: Boosters Individual boosters that work on yourself rather than the whole server have been added. These are known as buff rods and can be obtained from crates or buycraft. These are the denominations for the buff rods: 5m 2x money buff rod 5m 3x money buff rod 5m 2x gem buff rod 5m 3x gem buff rod Server-wide boosters are still available: 30m 2x money booster 20m 3x money booster 30m 2x gem booster 20m 3x gem booster Spoiler: Vote Party Vote parties now have 3 tiers, similar to eco's vote parties: 50 votes: 1 free vote key 100 votes: 30m 1.5x money booster 150 votes: 30m 2x gem booster Spoiler: Real Estate You can now get your own houses, known as Real Estate. These are customisable bits of land located at spawn itself. Some of you may remember a similar feature in McPrison. You can bid on such houses from the Realtor who is also at spawn. You will be taxed every 3 real-life days. If you fail to afford this tax, your house will be put back up on auction. Spoiler: General Info You will receive a starting omnitool and empty backpack (0 slots) upon logging in with an empty inventory. The bar and casino have been removed, and the warp menu has been edited accordingly. -=+=- Gkit Revamp Full information can be found here: http://arkhamnetwork.org/community/threads/gkit-revamp-stats-prison-revamp.88150/. -=+=- Voting Revamp Important Note: You should redeem all your unredeemed votes before Prison releases, as these will be wiped! A new store is being implemented for Prison and all servers that are revamped after it, replacing the older paragon system. It will run on a global currency known as credits. Your current paragon can still be used on non-revamped servers and their older paragon stores. You can obtain credits via /ads, voting and buycraft. These credits will simulate an in-game buycraft store for gamemode-specific items, and each credit will be worth 1 cent on this virtual store. This allows you to earn such buycraft items without spending real money. Watching ads will instantly grant you 1 credit, rather than having to be redeemed. Thus, it also no longer grants you vote keys and vote points, as this has been too OP with players literally selling vote parties. Voting will be redeemable manually, granting you 1-5 credits and a vote key, per vote. There will be new, updated milestone rewards for such votes, including a huge credit reward at 90 votes similar to the old $10 voucher reward. Redeeming credits in the credit store will announce this to the server in the same way that a buycraft purchase does. You will also be able to view your credit store purchase history in-game. Before any credit store purchase goes through, you will be prompted with a confirmation message. -=+=- Hope to see you this prison revamp!
