It's our Birthday! 2 years ago today (23rd October 2016) Cosmic Prisons was released to the world in Alpha! Boy has it been an adventure and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for all of us :) Of course, we have to celebrate! As such we have some events lined up for you guys over the next few days as well as an important change to some cell blocks!

Make sure to keep your eyes out for admins on your planets as we will be doing events and admin items throughout the day on Tuesday for all your Prisoners to celebrate!
Cell block changes
We have noticed a few players have come up with some "fun" creative defences recently that are being dubbed "Top Rank Only" cell defences, as such to prevent these unfair designs we are making some changes to the inspector that will be implemented on Friday with this weeks update to mitigate these designs for more fairer raiding.

The following blocks will no longer be classed by the inspector as blocks players can stand on (You will of course still be able to stand on them)

  • Players who are "Blacklisted" (This includes nounban players)
  • Players who have been banned for phishing
  • Players banned after 1st January 2018

What a busy week it has been! Halloween is coming and we can’t wait to show you guys some of the stuff we have planned for you! But before we start getting into the spooky season let's take a look at what you guys have to look forward to upon your planets reboot today:
  • New /level rewards and overhaul
  • /tl
  • /near
  • Iron vs Diamond
  • 30% Off Sale including and $100 Gift Card Bundle
New /level rewards and overhaul
You heard me right! We have decided to give the rewards you gain from levelling up a nice juicy buff! From now on starting at level 15 you will earn shards for every level up and a contraband every 5 levels! You can check out these rewards on /levels to see what your next reward will be!​

We have also given some work to the level up messages you get for each level! Making it easier for you to see what you are unlocking as you progress through the levels!​



With all this, we have also got a brand new level up animation! Make sure you are grinding out those levels to try test it out!
[​IMG]

/tl (aka /telllocation)
We have all been there, stuck in a sticky situation and no gang members or truces in sight, all screaming at you to tell them your cords but you just can’t get it to them in time. /tl sends a message in truce chat displaying your current coordinates (and world). You can switch to just gang chat by first running /g chat and then running /tl.
[​IMG]

/near
Ever thought there was somebody stalking you waiting for the moment your guard was down while mining a met? Available to rank 4+ players you can now do /near! By default /near will search a radius of 128 blocks around you (128 is also the maximum you can search...​

1v6 Half Heart Clutch Escape!

@Rtzy from the Sovereign brings us his POV of his half heart escape from the ruthless NounBan gang! Trying to escape 6 enemies is no easy feat, but Rtzy manages to dodge and weave his way all the way to the redstone mine and avoid the thirsty gang members right on his tail! Talk about cutting it close!


[​IMG]

Cell Raids Galore!

@Teddy0817 from the Valron planet gives a first hand look at how difficult it can be to raid, especially when you have pesky neighbours! On top of working together with his gang , fighting the guards they also have to fend off multiple pests in their attempts to get their hands on some juicy generators!

God Fights at Outpost!

Outposts are one of those scary places where there isn't an option to run away, it's do or die! @Sal__ risks it all jumping at the outpost for some godset pvp. Gotta risk it big to win big is his motto! Be sure to check out his perspective below.

Mekkz takes the L?

Poor @Mekzz was slaughtered in his diamond godsets at the hands of our resident escape artist @Rtzy. He's just full of pvp clips...
