    Hello everyone!

    As we plummet down into the madness of Season 2, we'd like to give some information on how the reset will happen.

    The all important question: what will be lost, and what will be kept?

    First of all, the following will be kept:
    • Purchased ranks
    • Purchased kits
    • Badges
    • Any unspent XP boosters

    Everything else will disappear so that we can improve the economy and game play. This includes money, cryptos, islands, inventories, robots, computers and anything else that is not in the list above. We may hold end-of-season events, where players can come blow up spawn and generally run amok, but these will be announced in separate threads.

    As Golden City launches into Season 2, it's time to reward the fantastic top islands from the previous rewards!

    The idea for Season 2 is to bring out lots of features as the season progresses. However, we're of course going to kick everything off with some initial additions!

    New Skyblock Plugin

    We completely rewrote our Skyblock plugin, from the ground up in the SkyMetro style you've all come to know. This new one is a lot faster, slicker, and contains a whole load of brand new features. It allows us to do a lot of awesome things down the road also! The main features that you will notice are:

    Reduced lag
    The new plugin has been written from scratch with server performance in mind, which means we should be able to handle higher player counts this time around.

    GUI based management interface
    All island features can be accessed through a new & improved GUI system! You can manage flags, team members, island settings, warps, homes and upgrades all through one simple and intuitive interface!

    Improved flag-permission system
    The existing island flag system has had a complete overhaul. You can toggle flags for all players, your team, or even specific users! lots of flags of permissions for all players, island members, or even specific people. Customize the hell outta your island!

    Improved team management
    You can now part of multiple teams, and still have an island of your own! We also made it much easier to oversee who has access to your island, manage invites and expel/ban players from your island.

    Island expansions
    We increased the max island size from 6 chunks (last season) to a whopping 25 chunks! This means you have loads more space for those huge farms. ;)

    Islands and team sizes can be expanded over time from the island management interface.

    Stacked mob spawners
    Mob spawners are now stacked similarly to how mobs themselves stack together. This will both improve player FPS and the overall performance of the server. Mob drops will of course remain the same - stacked spawners produce more mobs!

    Improved Economy
    We've made a number of improvements to the economy, to greatly balance the effectiveness of certain farms and strategies.

    In summary:
    • We reduced the effectiveness and efficiency of spawner farms
    • We buffed non-spawner farms
    • We buffed ore-mining/robot-mining slightly
    • We made it harder to obtain hoppers and other redstone components
    We will continue to tweak this throughout Season 2.

    Lots of other things!
    There are a *lot* of other small changes as well that we're launching with Season 2...You'll just have to play it to find these out!

    The all important question: when does all this shiny new content release!?

    Crimson City - Monday 13th November (1 week away)
    Coral City - Will be merged into Crimson and reset on the 13th. (another thread will follow containing the details of this)

    Insiding shouldn't be an issue now, just toggle the valuable blocks setting in your island flags :)

    To summarise even further:
    • It is the exact same as before
    • 1 Less city because whoever decided to open another 2 needs shooting
    • 'Lots of small changes' aka irrelevant stuff that won't even matter
    • Different economy aka 1 day to find the most broken item and abuse until nerfed.

    It's great to see this out! I'm sure everyone agrees that it was worth the wait! This is going to be interesting, although, I'm sure with a whole new plugin it will have a handful of bugs, we'll be sure to report them all. Good luck everyone! ;)

    When you say editing flags, would it be possible for us to use region flags on our own IS and toggle for stuff like perm speed and perm haste for out is region, im confused cause typically in order to do that, you need Worldedit to make the region and changes perms for it and change region ownership........ So what is the flags ? explain it in a simple way, how can we use it, and how will it prevent insiding ?

    It's not permissions for certain areas of your island if that's what you mean, and has nothing to do with world edit. If you want to prevent insiding:

    /is -> Island -> Island Flags -> Global Flags -> Breaking valuable blocks (the diamond pickaxe) -> Click to toggle allowed/disallowed

    You can also set these permissions for specific players by going to User-Specific Flags.
