Prison Server Reset & Major Updates

SERVER UPDATE



Hey there, chief!

It's been an awfully long time since we've released a large update and the primary reason for this is simply due to the heavy shift of focus towards the Prison Server and completely overhauling the existing functionalities that exist. This involved stripping down a lot of the main features in order to remake them again more efficiently. The primary focus this time around is around optimization. We understand that the Prison server can experience periods of extremely low TPS, at some stages where it becomes unbearable. We're hoping that the issue is no more with this update, along with a ton of new features for you guys to try out!

There have also been adjustments to our Core UltraNetwork plugins which are global across all servers so you may see a few changes in the Skyblock server as well.

Plot Mines
In order to clarify the usage of Plot Mines, slots and the rules behind their usage, we have created official Plot Mine Guidelines which must now be followed at all times. This is to prevent misuse and abuse of Plot Mines. Previously we had seen a number of players violating plot slots by removing players too quickly after making an agreement to keep them, or adding more members than they have slots. To resolve this issue, we have implemented a automated slot management system which now handles Plot Mine slot management.

Along with this, the ability to create Plot Mines has been automated for us owners, we can now create mines at a rapid pace without the need to enter a ton of commands manually as we did previously - this should significantly increase the delivery of your plot mines!


Prison Server Chat
The chat on the prison server has always been difficult to read due to the excessive number of information and details output, especially with player chatting. This has been cleaned up significantly in order to make readability a lot easier. We have removed unnecessary information such as a player's prestige, such information can now be found by hovering over a player's name in the chat.

Another major factor which makes the chat extremely difficult to read are tags, specifically custom tags which are purchased through the store. We have now introduced Custom Tag Guidelines, a set of rules which must be followed by all tags in order to ensure they aren't excessive.
