Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

This update is going to be short and sweet. Minor, but at the same time pretty huge. Let's not dwell on it and get started, shall we?

Criminal Record
Crude Ore Block Progression
Overhead Health
Small Fix To Raids

Criminal Record
A lot of you have noticed the removal of karma from your scoreboard. Do not fear my friends, we've changed the system a bit and it's definitely for the better!

What is a criminal record?
The basic concept of the criminal record is that;
Your 'karma' or 'record' will NOT reset on death. If you die to a guard (If you hit someone directly in front of one or cause a guard to follow you any other way), he will not let you off the hook once he kills you. Think of it as if, you just got out of jail and you now are on parole for a little while. Once your guard sees that you're alright to let you, he will stop following you.

What are the stages and how to go back to being a neutral citizen?
To go back to being neutral, you need to ensure that you don't engage in any funny business like killing other players or hitting guards.

This will be the replacement of the 'karma' system that you once saw, but works extremely similar so it's not too much strain on remembering how it works. :p

Crude Ore Block Progression
As I promised we'd make them worth it and here it is for you guys, crude ore.

For those who have a generator and crude ore you will notice the dramatic difference, they will now change block types as the crude ore generates into its final form. Each crude ore had 3 generations until its final 4th form. Bare with me, it's a tough concept to explain.

You ARE able to mine...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Here we go again, another weekend, another update for you all. Today's update is not the most dramatic, but it's still pretty awesome nonetheless.

Ore Generator and Crude Ore
Cells and Cell Guard changes.

Ore Generator and Crude Ores
The Ore generators are an interesting little concept that will tie the idea of factions mob spawners for xp into a prisons theme.

The ore generator is basically a block that allows Crude Ore blocks to generate ores when connected to or surrounding the generator. Crude Ores are the ore that will connect to your generator and spawn as your usual ore blocks. Depending on the time of the generator, depends on how long your crude ore will take to respawn. There's no other simple way for me to explain it, so you'll have to do some personal exploring and take a read of the items descriptions here.

You can find Ore Generators and Crude Ores in shards and you can purchase them from Generators in the /shop.

At the moment, ores are identical to any other. This is definitely something we are looking at buffing. These ore generators and crude ores WILL BE worth the money! So, get them while they're hot!

Cells and Cell Guard changes.
To negate overcrowding and players just purchasing cells for extra guards, we have limited a number of cell guards each cell is allowed to have. It should be as follows;
VIP - 14
Tier 1 - 12
Tier 2 - 10
Tier 3 - 8
Tier 4 - 6
Tier 5 - 4

Those who currently exceed this limit, we will be doing a sweep and placing extra cell guards in a chest in your cell if you are offline when we do this.

Also, after running a community poll; https://www.cosmicprisons.com/forum/index.php?threads/what-say-you-cell-raids.4040/

We decided to compromise and have it so that each individual...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

It seems the communities response to the concept of cell raids has been mostly positive so far. I'm glad to see most of us are enjoying it. Make sure you thank @melsha for his hard work in the comments!

Now, this post is just here to let you all know that cell raids have been enabled. Make sure to get a team together and try to raid your enemies...or even your bestest friends.

Go crazy guys!

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

All this talk of cells, what is to come in this update you may ask. We knew something for cells would come, but what is it, Emma?! Well, I'm here to give you guys all of the juicy details!

Cell Guards & Regular Guards
Cell Raiding
The Carpenter

20% Off Sale


Cell Guards & Regular Guards
With the addition of cell raids, you're going to need your own personal protection system. We are now introducing Guards for your cells. These will currently only be obtainable through shards and chances are 2x rarer than it is to find yourself a charge orb.

Cell guards have the same tier system as enchants and shards; simple, uncommon, elite, ultimate, legendary and godly. Check em out!

You are able to place as many as you like in your cell and pick them up at any time by right-clicking on their bodies.

As for our usual friendly guards, their eyesight has been slightly adjusted. They now find it a little tougher to see as far during the night. They are no night owls that's for sure. We've also made sure that they will only instantly kill you if they SEE you in front of their face.

Cell Raiding
You asked for it, we came through. Cells can now be raided, but not in the sense that any of you are accustomed to. That's right this is a whole new ball game.

To raid a cell, you need to defeat any and all cell guards in that cell. We are stripping the doors from cells, but they are not open to all. If you aren't in the player's gang or accessed(/cell access [ign]) to their cell, if you step into a cell and break or hit the guard, you will be targetted and killed by whatever guards are there until you leave the cell.

If you choose to fight back and kill all guards, you and anyone who helped will be granted permission to break and take anything inside the cell. Once you leave, the raid is over and you will need to kill the guards...
Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

I hope we've all arrived safely to the new year with no troubles. I personally had a lovely night of singing along to old songs (mostly some old school Avril Lavigne and Bruno Mars) and remembering memories of 2016. Let me know down below what you did for New Year's Eve and comment some memories you'd like to say goodbye to.

Now for the actual update here, I mentioned that with the new year, we would be resetting staff applications. Thus, that's exactly what we did.

All applications have been placed under denied and anyone who had an application up is now able to post a new form.

Thank you to everyone who applied, don't take this deny as discouragement because you all have an equal chance no matter what.

Good luck and have fun to those who decide to apply again.

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

With the year of 2016 coming close to an end, all we can do now Is reflect, prepare for a new year and bring out a few little updates to end the year with a bang! Let's look back at all the cool stuff that's come with 2016.

  • Alpha releases 1 and 2, that both came with millions of silly bugs like millions of pickaxe duplication, players unable to even message each other and guards having reach hax!
  • Silly streams from Rob, Preston and Choco
  • Increase in tier 5 cells
  • Sahara release/reset
  • Celestial release
  • Staff applications
  • Many many new helpers and mod promotions
  • Introduction to the Energy Engineer and Cosmic Wormhole
  • Shard loot table update
  • Custom Enchantments
  • Gangs
  • annnnnnnndddd.......much much more!

With all of that in mind, let's get into the last update of the year of 2016!

Charge Orbs
2 New Enchantments
40% Off Sale!

Charge Orbs
You will notice these little Charge Orbs floating around very soon, only obtainable in shards, they are going to be a game changer.

Charge Orbs are an applied item for your pickaxe that increases the speed of how long it takes to get 100% Cosmic Energy. As mentioned above these are obtainable through any shard, however, the rates are low to get these. They're pretty OP and rare so much luck miners!

2 New Enchantments
As Woofless kindly mentioned in his video, we'd like to release tons of sweet enchants and here's a few more to accompany the current few that we have.

Feed - Uncommon Enchant
Max Level: 5
While mining, you have a chance to be fed automatically by your pickaxe if you get hungry.

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Finally, we can all breathe a fresh breath of air. Most are on holidays break and today we're finally releasing the secrets you've all been begging for. With Christmas right around the corner, it would be savage of us not to give you guys another epic update!

Gangs
Changing Ores
2 New Enchantments!
/Staff
50% Holiday Sale!

Gangs
Yes, I'm not messing with you all, gangs are finally here! Now don't get too excited now, gangs are a whole lot different to most players assumptions, let's get into it, shall we?

The first thing you need to know, gangs are obviously a similar design to factions/parties with few changes. We have taken our own spin on it and made it less important for you to have a gang. At the moment gangs are SUPER basic, however, they have a lot of room for improvements and upgrades to come with time.

Important Gang Information:
You can only have 12 members in a gang.
Gang titles have a max length of 10 letters.
Everyone in the gang is a member, aside from the ONE leader/owner.
Gang title is BOLD for gang owner.
Gang title is a regular font for gang members.
Your gang is Pale Blue
Neutral gangs are white
Enemy gangs are pale red
Truce gangs are yellow
Gangs can only have 10 enemies set.
individual gangs can only have 2 truces.
Use /gang help for all gang-related commands.
Use /gang info [gang name] for information on a specified gang or your own.
Use /g instead of writing out /gang.

Description: Your set description for your gang. Could be a slogan or simple memes.
Members: Those in your gang, you...

Welcome Cosmic Prisoners

Holy Moly! It's been an incredible few weeks. There have been updates coming out my ears and I'm proud to be releasing another huge update for you all!

Celestial Planet Release
Energy Engineer, Custom Enchantments and Skills
Black Market Sale Limitations
30% Off Celestial ranks


Celestial Planet Release
A planet far from home, one salvaged by humans from the dark underworld. The Celestial planet is home to the outcasts and strange creatures of the Cosmic Galaxy. Do you dare test the players of Celestial and come on top?

[​IMG]

And of course, with the increasing player count of the Prisons community, we must accommodate the influx of players by releasing another planet. With the same map as Sahara planet but a completely new reskin and small additions throughout the map, how could you get bored of the scenery?

Energy Guardian, Custom Enchantments and Skills
Did you expect any different? We are the Cosmic brand, how could any of you be surprised to hear about custom enchantments. Although, this isn't any typical custom enchantment system, this is quite a unique experience and I'm going to do my best at explaining it to you all.

In the simplest form that I can use to explain how enchants work. When you mine, you have energy, it will begin at 0% and as you mine for longer, it will increase until it is at 100%. Once your pickaxes energy is capped you will be required to either use a different pickaxe or go to the Energy Guardian (located at the back of
shop).
[​IMG]

At the EnergyGuardian, you will throw your pickaxe into the portal to refresh its energy.
[​IMG]
Not only will it refresh but it will roll for one of the custom enchantments.
