Just a short update for you guys today so I won't waste any time and jump right into it!
New Donor Perks - Disguises
I have added +20 NEW Disguises for donors. These mainly include mobs from recent update (1.13, 1.14, 1.15), that I failed to add before. Make sure to check out the menu with "/disguises" to see if your rank got any new bonus disguises!
New Donor Perks - Particles
I have also overhauled the particles system. To access the particles menu type "/h". I have added new particles for donor ranks and fixed some long standing bugs with some of the older particles. These bugs included capes hiding under the ground and particles glitching/ not following players properly. Make sure to check out the new capes, trails and vortexes!
Fixed a bug where deathchests wouldn't spawn properly.
Fixed known bugs with particles (see above).
Optimised server performance (reduced lag and hiccups).
Fixed bug where some votes weren't registering.
Fixed some mob spawning bugs.
Fixed a bug where menus weren't appearing correctly for players.
Fixed known issue with player warps.
Fixed bugs involving skull entities in both the player warps menu and leaderboards menu.

Wanted to Announce Two Server Wide Contests/ Events today. But First, just a quick reminder about our recurring Top Monthly Voter Contest. The Top Voters at the end of each month receive store credit to spend on Ranks, Keys, etc. You can check out the prizes and vote links here: https://gbcraft.pw/index.php?threads/voting-links.2/
The Top Voters for June will be announced at the end of the month...
Now, onto the contest announcements!
June Build Contest - Nature
A poll was recently held to decide the theme of this months build contest, for full transparency the result is pictured below:
NATURE was selected by you as the theme of this months contest. I can't wait to see what stuff you guys build. As always when you've completed your build submit it to the relevant discord Channel #buildcontests, with the following template:
IGN (in game name): Name of Build: Build Pictures:
The Winner of this months contest will get a $10 Store Voucher + $50,000 Starting Balance when the Server world/economy resets for the 1.16 update plus, the respect of all your peers for creating the best build. The winner is decided by a vote of all members of the server.
As people are probably aware, the PvP arena gets very little use from people on the Server. So.. to drum up hype around the arena we want to organise a tournament for the middle of the month. The rough date set for this is Saturday 20th of June. It will be run as follows:
Anyone who wants to enter send me a DM between now and the event (I will keep reminding people).
I will make a list of all people who are going to enter....
Hope everyone's keeping well. Just wanted to release a little preview of what everyone can expect for the long anticipated 1.16 Server Update. I can't confirm when this will release, just as soon as the plugins and updates are available for the server!
Fully Reset Worlds (including Nether and End)
We're planning a full world reset for the Nether update. That means a completely new fresh map to explore and all the features that come with a world running on 1.16. This obviously will include the Nether and End that will both experience resets. The Nether is perhaps the most exciting as all the changes expected from the 1.16 update will be brought over to the Server.
Fully Reset Economy
Along with the world Reset the Economy will be fully reset as well. Everyone's balance will be reset back to zero.
Overhauled Land Claim System and Clans System in Favour of Towny
We are currently working hard on developing a completely new fresh land claim system. Towny has been suggested and voted on by players and will form the basis for the new land claim system. Players can create their own town or join their friends. We're hoping this will be a new fun replacement for the rarely used clans system and will encourage players to play together, build together and hopefully improve the cooperative elements of the Server
Jobs Feature to be Added
This feature has also been suggested and highly requested by players. Development is ongoing for this as well. We hope this will give players more stuff to do when they are online. By completing daily and weekly tasks they will be able to earn cool rewards such as crate keys, ingame cash and much more!
New Higher Levels added to /Level
Currently Levelling only goes as far as 10. We aim to add more levels, enhance the current prize system with more enticing prizes and add some more, harder to complete requirements to keep levelling balanced and reasonably difficult...
