Evening,

Today I am happy to announce the upcoming Skyblock update! This has been a side project which I have been running over the past week or so and I am pleased to announce that it shall officially be live from 8pm GMT, Saturday 22nd July! Saying that at 7pm GMT the Skyblock gamemode will go down for 1 hour while we work on implementing these changes, this allows us some leeway in case something were to go wrong and allows us to do any last minute changes. We hope you understand.


Whats New?
There has been a fair amount of miscellaneous, small issues which have been resolved for this update, most of which are irrelevant and I won't bother giving a particular mention here. With that said, the following are the main, noticeable changes:

  • Night Vision
    • This perk will be accessible for any donator rank, bought off the store, this gives you permissions to use the /nv command which will give you the permanent Night Vision effect.
  • Vote Party
    • The Vote Party now has new, updated rewards!
  • Auction House
    • I have updated the plugin and personalised the configuration file, this means that any auction listings up at the time of the update will be cleared, please be alert of this.
  • Plots
    • Though this may not directly affect you, a new plot world has been added for Build Competition use ONLY. This enables me and @MishtaVishta to host build events on Skyblock without the need for you to compromise parts of your island!
  • Sell Chest
    • Yes! It is here, at long last. Sell Chest is now a feature available to everyone, to create a sell chest simply place a sign on your desired chest with [SellChest] on the top line, whenever this sign is clicked, it will sell the available contents. Currently, every member (regardless of rank) has the ability to create a maximum of 10 sell chests, though as you rank up through the in-game ranks, your limit will increase! As follows:
      • Member: 10
      • Member+: 20
      • [COLOR=rgb(255,...

Good Evening,


Let's start on a happy note, that being I am happy to announce KitPvP will be back up and running at approximately 9:30pm BST, 4:30pm EST and 3:30pm CST. We sincerely apologise for the downtime and hope we will not have to resort to such measures again.

With that being said, there are a few changes that have come into place:
  • Players no longer have access to reset their stats
  • Crates have been temporarily disabled, until further notice
  • Many players have been banned (explained further below)
  • Crate keys have temporarily been taken down from the store
  • Fixed certain commands being blocked over the map
  • Re-added access to /pv and /echest in PvP
  • PvP event re-added for tomorrow (more info)
  • Changed the anti cheat
Now comes to the less pleasing part. I and the other members of senior staff have had to spend multiple hours going through pv's, logs, stats etc... for the past few days to help resolve this and we have all agreed after this being the second time of its occurrence, this will be its last. Anyone seen or suspected to be in possession of duped items will be instantly permanently banned, anyone seen to be duping will straight away be permanently IP-banned. We have resolved many issues which may have been causing these dupes, though we are not perfect and there is no doubt a bypass will be found at some point, meaning this process will have to start again. To ensure your security for not just you staying on the server, but kitpvp staying up, it is vital you instantly alert staff if you suspect someone of duping and always remove any duped items you have collected, or hold them in a spare pv and ask staff, as soon as possible, to remove it for you. By no means is it going to be acceptable to trade illegal items and unless you want to face an unforgiving ban, I suggest you are to stick with that.

Finally, in case you were wondering, no, KitPvP has not been reset, we have banned dupers, those who have not admitted to obtaining duped items and removed items from those who have admitted. Meaning we trust that it should now be okay.


Any questions, please comment below.

Many thanks,
Dan

Hey guys,

This is to inform you all that KitPvP will be down for a while tomorrow while myself and Matty work on fixing a few of major issues. Primarily we are experiencing a major issue with player UUIDs which is causing numerous problems - not only on KitPvP but globally. One of which is that when members change their IGN, they end up getting reset. This isn't the only issue but it's best that we fix these problems ASAP.

Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say this is going to mean that we have to reset the server, however, in light of the dupe glitch we discovered that involved players having pv's full of gapples and P4 gear and - judging from our logs - were trading those items with several players including their own alts, we feel it would be best. Several of the active players have already requested a reset so I guess this could be seen as a win/win. So many items from the dupe glitch have been distributed that many players are now too OP - to use a glitch in this way for your own advantage and not reporting it just ruins the game. We have identified the cause of the duping and we will be fixing this too.

On the bright side - we will hopefully have made the server 1.7 compatible and have a better anticheat in place by the time we launch it back up. We feel that the benefits of this completely outweigh the negatives, although I know some of you will be annoyed at this, it's the only way to fix these issues and I'm sure you'd rather have it done now than further down the line. You will not lose your ranks!

Downtime will begin at approximately 8:00am EST/1:00pm BST 06/30. We apologise the inconvenience.
