Lava Planet's impending update and reset is gearing up for such an amazing adventure so I figured I'd post the details for you guys today! New Spawn Tunnels Rep Points Faction Points Core Chunks and Raiding Points *NEW* To the Cosmic Galaxy: Strongholds What you WILL keep What will be lost Competitions New Spawn Tunnels @ypperin spent several hours adding new secret spawn tunnels some with Easter-eggs perfect for spawning in a dungeon where people can't find it. Faction Points Yes, like Nebula, /f top on Lava Planet will be based on Faction Points. Faction Point allocation will be multiplied as the map ages by 110% each week. This means that KOTH during week 1 will give 400 Points, week 2 will give 440 Points etc. This multiplication WILL also apply to Daily Purchasable Faction Point Limitations. How to obtain Faction Points: Can be earned through in game events (see details below) Can be purchased with in game cash (see details below) Can be acquired through successfully raiding another faction's Core Chunk (based on Y level) You cannot acquire Faction Points if your faction does not have a Core Chunk Your Core Chunk is the first chunk claimed by your faction Spoiler: Click here to see how many points each event/item will give your faction K.O.T.H: Week One: 400 Faction Points Guaranteed Faction Point Note acquired from the KOTH Lootbag Conquest: Week One: 50 Faction PointsPhysical item dropped by the Conquest Chest Vanilla Outpost Week One: 5 Faction Points per hourAutomatically applied once captured End Drops: Week One: 1-2 Faction Points RNG ChancePhysical item dropped when killing mobs Player Placed Boss Eggs (does not scale as the map ages): Brood Mother: 1 Faction Points King Slime: 2 Faction Points Undead Assassin: 3 Faction Points Plague Bloater: 4 Faction Points Yijki: 5 Faction PointsNatural Server Spawned Bosses (not placed by players): Brood Mother: Week One: 5 Faction PointsKing Slime: Week One: 10 Faction PointsUndead Assassin: Week One: 15 Faction PointsPlague Bloater: Week One: 20 Faction PointsYijki: Week One: 25 Faction PointsPhysical item given to the player that inflicted the most damage Battlefield Boss Week One: 50 Faction PointsThe faction of the player that inflicts the most damage will have points automatically allocated Dungeon Lootbags Week One: 5-10 Faction Points RNG ChancePhysical item received when opening a Dungeon Lootbag Faction Quests ( /f quest ): Week One: 50 Faction PointsOn successfully completion of all 7 days of quests Daily Challenges Week One: 10 Faction Points for First Place 5 Faction Points for Second Place 2 Faction Points for Third PlacePhysical item received once the Daily Challenge is completed Purchasing Faction Points with In-Game Money /factionpoints buy $100,000 per Faction Point Automatically allocated to the faction on purchase Week One: Limited to 400 Faction Points per dayFactions will be unable to purchase more than the daily limit however this daily limit does NOT apply to Faction Points and Faction Point Notes received from in game events such as bosses and outpost. Core Chunks and Raiding for Points The Core Chunk Shown by a yellow hashtag on the /f map this chunk is the first chunk claimed by a faction, is visible to anyone running /f map near a Core Chunk, and should be the most protected chunk in your claims! If another faction raids you and explodes regular TNT within the core chunk they will steal Faction Points from your faction. The Basics: The Core Chunk is the first chunk claimed by your faction To unclaim the Core Chunk you must /f unclaimall The amount of points awarded on breaching the core chunk will depend on the Y level of the breach (The higher the Y the more points) maxing out at 25% To gain points you MUST breach Core Chunk ABOVE Y20. If you breach below Y20 no points will be gained You may not attempt to bypass losing Faction Points by unclaiming. Using alternate factions to hold points is not permitted Claims within three chunks of warzones will not be automatically unclaimed. Claims 4 or more chunks from warzones, regardless of the connecting chunk ownership, will be classified as raid claims and will have a 24 hr limit before they are reverted back to wilderness claims. Raiding for Points As mentioned above factions can raid for points by breaching the Core Chunk of other factions. If regular TNT is exploded within the Core Chunk a percentage of points will be given to the raiding faction. On successful breach both your faction and the faction that was breached will receive a notification in chat. The Basics: You can raid for points by exploding Regular TNT within the Core Chunk The percentage of points lost will be based on the Y level of the TNT that explodes within the Core Chunk To gain points you MUST breach Core Chunk ABOVE Y20. If you breach below Y20 no points will be gained If breached your faction will be placed on an 8 hr Raid Cooldown You may not attempt to bypass being raided by breaching yourself. Attempting to undermine the point system could result in the diqualification of your faction from the competition Strongholds on the Planet A more traditional take on Outposts, players will have the opportunity to compete for Faction Perks, Points, and OP Rewards by dominating and controlling one of the two Strongholds. Located at 5000x, 5000z and -5000x, -5000z Strongholds not only offer OP Loot, but some highly coveted Faction Perks worth fighting for! To cap a Stronghold you must mine through the wall, break the current cap, then cap it for your faction! Loot spawns within the chest in the [Sell Room]. Once controlled simply right click the [Sell Room] sign located within the stronghold as well on the exterior near the Stronghold Doors! Rewards (awarded per hour alternating between the Strongholds): Faction Points KOTH Loot Items Equipment Lootboxes Faction Perks: Infernal Specialty Perks Fly everywhere regardless of rank No Key requirement to enter dungeons 10% /enchanter Discount No AH Tax Frozen Specialty Perks Faction Point Multiplier on Application No Coin Flip Tax +10% bonus jackpot tickets /stronghold sell (operates like /sell hand but for strongholds) $2000/Emerald Block $400/Iron Block $500/Gold Block Strongholds are physical locations within the overworld at 5000x,5000z and -5000x,-5000z. Rewards including KOTH items will be awarded in the sell room accessible by the controlling faction within the chest. Rewards are awarded alternating between the two Strongholds every 1 hour This means that if rewards are first awarded at Frozen Stronghold they will, in one hour, be awarded at Infernal Stronghold Players must run to a Stronghold to Cap it and mine through the walls to "break" inside. Players can mine through ANY exterior wall of the Stronghold Blocks in the protective walls of the Stronghold have increased durability requiring 15 hits per block to break. Enderpearls do not work within the Stronghold Once inside players can capture the Stronghold by standing on the cap point in the center The more players on a cap point the faster it caps Once a faction controls a Stronghold a contesting faction must first break the cap of the previous faction then re-cap to gain control The faction that controls Stronghold 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 a Stronghold enters the cap zone the cap time will freeze and the Stronghold will show as contested. Only faction members of the controlling faction are able to access and use [Sell Room] and Sell Signs Factions are only able to control one Stronghold at a time Buffs from a controlled Stronghold affect only the controlling faction and apply throughout the Planet. What will you WILL KEEP after the reset: Ranks (yes even those won from crates) Titles /gkits Cosmic Effects / Trails Purchased F Powerboosts The quantity homes that you currently have available to you at the moment of reset What will be lost with the reset: Cash Balance mcMMO Inventory/Echest/PV Contents Bases/Land etc Home locations So what will the last day of Carnage involve?
