Well hey there everyone, happy Tuesday! I know this post is like, 2 and a half weeks late, but I’ve been a bit busy with some IRL stuff (I'm moving!) and haven’t been able to make the time to write up one of these.
For starters I’d like to congratulate our 2 giveaway winners, Nidraw and Patbey! Thank you to everyone who entered, seeing the turnout for this giveaway, I may be doing another one soon, so stay tuned.
In other news, I have another announcement about minigames.
I’m sad to announce that the plans for bedwars seems to have fallen through, or at least put the project on a slight hold because of the compatibility issue between the plugin and the server’s version and modded style. MineCrusher is still working hard on it to see if he can come up with a fix for the issue we found after testing.
On a positive note, with the loss of bedwars, we welcome 2 new minigames, and a very much needed update for a current one. The 2 new mingames are Flash TNT Run, as well as Hero’s Hide n Seek! Some of you have already seen Flash TNT Run, seeing as we played it a bit for the past 2 Saturday events, but Hero’s Hide n Seek is all new!
Here’s the quick rundown of the two minigames.
FLASH TNT RUN is a fun game where you run around on a gravel base as the Flash, but every few blocks you step on disappear under your feet. There are about 5 levels, and the last person left who hasn’t fallen through the final level is the winner. People seem to have enjoyed this thus far, seeing as it’s a quick and simple game to play with friends.
HERO’S HIDE N SEEK is exactly as it sounds. It’s a regular blockhunt minigame, otherwise known as Hide n Seek on some servers, except all the maps (we currently have 2) are superhero based, and the blocks you can disguise as are FiskHero blocks such as suit fabricators, tutridium blocks, and vibranium blocks. We were unable to add things like display stands and treadmills into the mix because of their mod configuration. The two maps we currently have are Star Labs and Wayne Manor. I hope you all enjoy this new game, because I know I will be playing it every chance I get!
UPDATE TO SKYWARS
As many of you know, Skywars was disturbing redstone quite a bit because of its small lag spikes it creates, interfering with the lag spikes that bigger redstone contraptions create themselves. Fortunately for us, we have an amazing developer who not only worked on an update that fixed this issue, but also added a bunch of new content to the Skywars Game, opening it up for even more potential fun!
- We have added a shop where you can finally use coins earned from games
- In the shop you can buy various suits that you start off with having when the match starts
- You can also buy different textures for your starter cage to be
- We have also added achievements so that you have more ways to potentially get coins to buy starter suits
- Black Panther suit pieces will still be available in the Black Panther arena, so that even if you don’t have a starter suit, you still have the ability to get a suit for the game.
- We have decided to make some more hero themed maps, more info on that is TBA
- You can also now create parties with friends, and even group up for Skywars matches
We hope you all enjoy these much-needed fixes and changes, let us know how you feel about any of the new minigames or changes to current ones in the comments bellow!
VANILLA IS ALMOST READY FOR RELEASE!
Yes, that’s right, we are almost ready for vanilla! We will be releasing it on Saturday, the 16th, the closest Saturday to the release date of FCS that we could get. The only things that’s left is for us to set up donator options, fix certain commands and permissions, and finalize and test everything. It’s very exiting that something has been actually in the works and hyped up for this long is finally being released. Differently from Galactic Battle, I feel this server will really bring in a different group of people, as well as bring over some of the FCS players to it. We are extremely excited for all of you to come on and see it in a week and a half!
Now let’s talk STATISTICS!
So, we are currently at 4613 total members on the FCS. Compared to the last time I posted, when we were at 4334, it’s a pretty big jump, keeping in mind its from 2 and a half weeks ago, I’d say it’s a nice number to see. We are over half way to the next thousand marker, which is amazing!
That’s all I got for you guys today, I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I’ll see you all on Saturday for the event!
