Build contests will now be announced on a regular basis, featuring winners and new themes to keep everyone updated.
The winner of the last theme, Mythical, is Shadowryien!
The next theme is Forts, which ends on the 12th of May.
The contest is open to all users and the grand prize is 1,000 Notes. Any other information is located in the creative hub at /creative. Please comment on this post if you have any questions regarding the build contest.
This month has seen some impressive record-breaking voting from many players, especially the winners listed above! Each of them voted more than 100 times this month, so they're being rewarded with website points to spend in the donation shop. (Every 100 points has the same buying power as $1)
Thanks for voting, and good luck to everyone in next month's contest! Note: this month had doubled rewards because there was no contest in March. The May contest will have prizes at the normal amount.
HarmoniCraft has been improving in great ways recently! We've added daily rewards, the Lord arena, updated our minigames Hub, added Skywars, and even made it possible to tame endermen (just kidding about the last one). To celebrate, I've decided to offer a donation shop sale!
The Spring Sale is the best opportunity to buy donation ranks or Notes this season! The sale will last from April 19th to May 5th! Unlike other sales, you will not need to enter a specific coupon code for this one. Each item in the shop is already marked down during the duration of the sale.
At long last, we have made a full reset of the server! All progress has been reset to create a level playing field and a rebalanced economy, adding a new competitive edge to the server that we haven't been able to see for well over a year. Although some long term players may be disappointed that they lost their progress, most have agreed that it was getting old to have so much money in such an inflated economy. In light of the need for a fresh start, the admin team has reset world data, inventories, balances, as well as Factions and Towny information. When you rejoin the server, you will be a new person! Ranks and Notes will be retained, but nearly everything else will be a fresh, new beginning.
Major New Features
Some important new features are being introduced that will change some aspects of the server. These will be explained below:
Balances are now separate per server. You have a different balance in Factions than you do in Towny, KitPvP, or Skyblock. When you pay someone, the money goes to them inside of the server that you are in. This means money can't spread between servers and each one will have it's own economy.
Worlds have been reset. This means there's plenty of new, unexplored land to uncover and adventure in.
Sell prices of certain items have been adjusted. In general, we reduced the sell prices of some crops and mob drops so that mob farming and "mega-farms" can't be abused to get a ton of money on the server. To balance this out, we increase the sell price of items such as quartz, ghast tears, and elytra. This provides an economic advantage to players that explore the other dimensions in Towny and Factions.
We added a /shop command to open a shop GUI. This makes shopping much more convenient through the menu system so that you can quickly buy the items you need without searching for them in a physical server shop. It's not entirely finished yet and more progress will be made on it over the coming days and weeks, and we are always open to suggestions for new items to add to it.
There's a new Factions spawn. Built by Da_Bukket, it features a large tree surrounded by a hill on all sides, with a cave leading to portals to the nether and to the end. It also has no physical shop, because the /shop command is much more convenient.
Look For Bugs! And Enjoy!
Since we reset and manipulated a lot of data, there may be a couple things that are out of place or aren't working entirely perfectly. As with any major update, we expect there to be a couple things that need to be fine tuned and improved. Please, if you find anything that needs to be reported, post on the forums!
Thank you so much for your patience, we're very happy to have provided a fresh start for all players and look forward to seeing people enjoy more balanced and genuine gameplay.
