Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Welcome to the 24th installment of the Cosmic Community Column. These past two weeks have been flat out and I can’t wait to get right into what's been going on, so let's get straight into this week's column!

Preston joins the server with a BANG!!

@TBNRfrags has begun his brand new Cosmic Prisons adventure on the freshly reset Sovereign Planet. With the guidance of his best pal @Woofless, Preston managed to hit the ground running and even make it into this week’s CCC! Watch below at 45:15, as he pounces on an unsuspecting victim spawning in some juicy gkits!

Parkour on Prisons?!?!?

With Sovereign Planet resetting this past weekend, it was time for the admin events and carnage to take place. Unfortunately, the team ran into some issues with the infamous Admin Cell Event and with some quick footwork pushed out a Parkour Event instead. Parkour may be one of the most rage inducing challenges on minecraft and is a very hard skill to master. We had 5 winners, who won prizes ranging from Cosmic Crates to a Top Rank!

Unfortunately , @Frosted_ wasn’t one of the winners, but sure gave the parkour a top notch effort. Check out his perspective below to see his attempts and even some salty minerman rage!

Greetings Prisoners!

Sovereigns Reset is finally upon us and with it, we are introducing some big changes to Mining levels! So sit back grab some popcorn and enjoy the read!


  • Mining Level changes
  • Mystery Cosmic Crate
  • Sovereigns Reset
  • 45% Off Sale

Mining Level changes
We are always working on making Prisons a grind but at the same time rewarding, Sovereign is going to be the first planet to receive these changes in preparation for some bigger updates to come and other planets will get them when it is time for there reset. Here are the changes being implemented today:
  • Chain Gear removed
  • Can now mine with a Wooden Pickaxe from Level 1
  • Stone Weapons can now be used from Level 10
  • The amount of XP required from Level 30 - 60 has been increased by ~25%
  • The amount of XP required from Level 60 - 90 has been increased by ~40%
  • The amount of XP required from Level 90 - 105 has been increase by ~40%
Changes to the leveling system
I can only imagine the amount of questions that arise from this, so here are the most common
questions and answers that may be asked (Don't forget if you ever need clarification and the level requirements for any piece of gear you can always do /levels in-game!):
Why make Wooden Pickaxes Level 1?
The intention of the first few levels on Prisons is to learn the game mode and understand how mining works with Pickaxes on Prisons. Starting the grind with your fists when you will never use them again after Level 10 doesn't teach new players how they work. This also makes the initial grind from 1 - 10 a little quicker!
Wait, if I have to grind with...

Greetings Prisoners,

It's been another busy week behind the scenes but were still bringing you some updates to look forward to upon your planets reboot today.
  • /g coleader
  • Guard healing changes
  • Coming Soon
/g coleader
The co leader role allows gangs to give permissions to a second in charge! They will have identical permissions to the leader of the gang, except for /g disband and setting /g coleader. There is no limit to the amount of co-leaders allowed in a gang.
Leaders will now show in chat with 3 *’s, Co-Leaders will show with 2 *’s, Moderators will show with 1 * and Members will show with none.​

Guard healing ability and raiding
Recently players have been using the Hero Outposts no /home cooldown to exploit guards healing effects during a raid. This was not the intended use of the /home buff and as such we have implemented a fix to negate this exploit.​
[​IMG]
All guards (Wardens, Enforcers, Hitmen and Guards) will no longer provide regeneration to players that have taken damage from cell guards within the last 60 seconds.
Coming Soon
I wonder what @trembo is doing here...

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Welcome to the 23rd installment of the Cosmic Community Column. This column showcases the highlights that have taken place on the server and shares them with the wider community. Lets jump straight into it!

That's what you call a facepalm!

@Ryan_the_Boss_10 with the assistance of @CrystalFar were purchasing a lucky 4 orb using his hard earned tokens at the Mystery Man. When all of a sudden CrystalFar gives the orb to a random guy! Talk about a facepalm! The exact moment he went to click on Ryan's name in chat another players trade popped up. Wow, now that's unlucky! Fortunately for him, he was able to sweet talk the player and pay him in tokens for the orb back. Check out the hilarious reaction below!

April Fools!

Last week for April Fools the admins decided to have a little behind the scenes prank on the players. They changed the mining level notification to read as if every player was hitting level 105. It even managed to fool some community members as we started to get reports of there being an exp glitch. Was for sure a good laugh reading those. Here's one players reaction to a leather guy reaching level 105 mining!

2 Gkits from 2 Contrabands!?!?!!

@WhiteDecay has got to be one of the luckiest players on the Cosmic Prisons server. He always manages to have amazing luck opening shards, gkits and contrabands. In the video below he manages to open a diamond and gold satchel from two...

You will now be able to select the tier of gear you wish to claim your gkits & rankkits. For example, you are level 70 but want a leather gkit set to put on your guards or use for a raid. Now you can do that!​
/rankkit or /gkit will now display a new option at the bottom of the GUI. Clicking this icon will toggle through the tiers of gear you have available. The tier of gear you're able to select is based on your mining level. For example: a level 70 player can select iron and below, a level 100 can select diamond and below and a level 10 would only be able to select leather.

Welcome, Cosmic Prisoners!

Welcome to the 22nd installment of the Cosmic Community Column. This weeks post is full of high quality pvp action, from raiding to godset kills and even some guard kills! Without further ado let's get right into it!

MEGA RICH VIP RAID!

@Qcy from the Celestial Planet brings us some great raid footage of him and his gang raiding one of the richest cells on the planet! With some great organisation skills and strategy they made some quick work of those Godly Guards and even snagged some redstone satchels and a whole bunch of emerald generators for their efforts.


[​IMG]

Godset kill with rank kit ?!?!?

@Its_Target from the Sovereign Planet is back at it again this week with a great clip of him and his gang teaming up on a villian! After tirelessly chasing him down they manage to deal the final blow with rank kit! Talk about adding insult to injury! Yikes!


[​IMG]

I can taste the SALT!

@awsomemidkip managed to capture the risk of drive bying live on camera! The diamond villain manages to complete a drive by. but in the midst of killing the Hitman runs into a Warden! It's one of those heart sinking moments where you just realise you lost your godset that hits home with players. I can just imagine the salt and anger after dying to that warden!
