The BETA map has come and gone and we couldn't be more appreciative of this amazing community for their constant feedback, suggestions, and bug reports! The polls were posted last week and the results are in, so here's an overview of what's coming to CosmicHCF // Map 2! Ranks Outposts Daily Challenges Invisibility Crate Revamp Kill Trackers /kills top Rank /kit Revamp If you are new to HCF you can check out the details of the basics of HCF over here! Ranks Yes, as per many players' requests we will be offering permanent ranks, however as a special THANK YOU to those of you who have been so supportive during our BETA testing period will receive something special. Players who have ranks from the BETA period will be granted a Permanent Rank of the same tier as well an exclusive title, [OG]! Cosmic wouldn't be where it is today without the loyalty and support of her community and as we move forward those who were there at the start of HCF will remember the "OG" days and have a title to prove it! Outposts Never before seen, a brand new twist even for Cosmic players, CosmicHCF is getting their very own unique version of Outposts! Outposts bring a whole new strategy to HCF boasting bonuses for your whole faction PLUS custom sell signs! Don't want to read the basics? Check out the tutorial made by one of our very own CosmicHCF mods, @LDram The Basics: Players must run to Outpost to Cap it and mine through the walls to "break" inside. Players can mine through ANY exterior wall of the Outpost Blocks in the protective walls of the Outpost have increased durability requiring 15 hits per block to break. Enderpearls do not work within the Outpost Once inside players can capture the outpost by standing on the cap point in the center The more players on a cap point the faster it caps Once a faction controls an outpost a contesting faction must first break the cap of the previous faction then re-cap to gain control The faction that controls outpost is able to repair the walls with normal blocks (ie: stone, stone brick etc) but not high durability blocks (such as obsidian) If a player from outside a faction capping or contesting an outpost enters the cap zone the cap time will freeze and the Outpost will show as contested. Only faction members of the controlling faction are able to access and use Elevator and Sell Signs Sell Signs are located below the cap point and is accessible by the exterior or interior elevator signs Factions are only able to control one Outpost at a time Buffs from a controlled Outpost affect only the controlling faction and apply throughout the HCF server. The Great Hall Location: -2000 and -2000 Buffs: Passive Fire Resistance Reduced enderpearl cooldown by 1.5 seconds Increased EXP drops from mob grinding within your claims Increased brewing speed by 25% Reduced DTR freeze Faster DTR regeneration The Court Yard Location: 2000 and 2000 Buffs: Increased smelting speed by 100% Reduced Bard cooldowns by 1.5 seconds Reduced saturation loss by 50% Mob spawning within claims increased by 1.5x Reduced deathbans by 25% Reduced claim purchase costs Daily Challenges A loot table in and of itself!

Efficiency 6 Fortune IV Gold Pickaxe (unrepairable) Sharpness II Looting IV Gold Sword (unrepairable) Vanilla EXP Boosters to benefit your whole faction Keys Bard Gear Miner Gear Archer Gear PvP Gear Custom Item Nametags Gear Steak Vanilla EXPAnd so very much more! Invisibility We hosted a poll last week after numerous members of the community showed an interest in Invisibility Potions and have found what we hope to be a decent compromise! Check out the details of Brewing and Using Invisibility: Invisibility can only be applied to players who are NOT combat tagged Players will not un-invis if they are combat tagged while invisible Players will not be able to drink nor splash invis while combat tagged Players will not be able to be splashed by another player with invis while combat tagged Invisibility will only last 2 minutes You can only brew invisibility by hand Hoppers will not move golden carrots Golden Carrots must be placed in a brewer by hand Invisibility will have a 15 minute cooldown Invisibility will NOT be available for the first day of the map Crate Revamp We've heard much feedback on the crate available on CosmicHCF and the frequency of Custom Kill Messages so we have removed the majority of Custom Kill Messages from all loot crates and replaced them with a single chance to get a Kill Message Key! This should help reduce the quantity of Kill Messages players receive and hopefully open the door to more advantageous rewards! Kill Trackers That's right, got that one lucky sword that just never let's you down? Now it can sport not just a Custom Item Name Tag, but a Kill Tracker tracking how many unfortunate minemen have been temp-banned as a result of your blade! Kill trackers will be added to all loot tables so be sure to complete your Daily Challenges and score some keys through Treasure Drop, KOTHs, Stronghold, and, the Server Store! /kills top A new command graces CosmicHCF Map 2 geared perfectly for those that are the best on the Map! Displaying players in order of highest kills while also showing their deaths and KDR, you can easily boast your PvP Prowess! Rank /kit Revamp Players have asked us to revisit rank kits and spread out the enchantments a little more and we're doing just that! Players will find that the rank kits are a little more balanced with one another sporting more spread out enchantments!
