Welcome Prisoners! This guide is to help everyone who is starting out on Cosmic Prisons! Joining It is fairly simple on how to join the server, type the IP CosmicPrisons.com into the server address box when on the multiplayer section Beginning Once you join the server, its time to head to the coal mines and start your journey! On every planet the coal and iron mines will be NorthWest of spawn, You jump down from spawn, follow the path that goes North West and then start punching coal with your fists until you hit mining level 10. You can sell your ores at the ore exchanger found in the shop at spawn, which you can teleport to using /shop. Rank 2+ has access to the /sellhand | /sellall commands. Mining and selling ores are the main way of obtaining currency. Once you hit level 10 you will be able to use a wooden pickaxe, which you can begin mining Iron with. As you mine, your pickaxe will obtain energy, which can be used to enchant. Enchanting Once any item (Armor, Pickaxes, Swords/Axes, Satchels) is full with Cosmic Energy, you can enchant it at the enchant portal found in spawn. To enchant an item, press Q and throw the item into the portal (make sure to be close enough to the portal) and you will begin to see floating enchant orbs come out of the portal with their success / fail rates. Click on the orb that you desire, your item will fly up into the sky, and come back down either with a new enchant or just levelled up. If your enchant fails, your item level will still increase but you will not get the enchant. If you are applying a enchant orb to an item, get the item to 100% energy, throw the item in, and throw the enchant orb into the portal. For a complete list of enchants, type /enchants in game or look at this guide here. Cells/Generators Cells are one of the most useful resources in Prisons. With a cell, you can store items in chests and place cell generators to mine ores in your cell. You can place Cell guards inside of your cell to attack raiders, you can apply any enchanted gear to these cell guards (must be tiered to the same level as the guard i.e simple-leather uncommon-gold etc…) but keep in mind the gear will break and you must repair it. Along with the guards, you can place doors in your cell to slow down raiders, as they must break the doors to gain access to the inside of your cell to kill the guards easier. To raid a cell, you must kill all of the cell guards before being able to steal anything from the inside of the cell. Cells require rent, which is taken out of the owner's balance weekly. If you could not afford your cell rent on the day it was due, you have a 3 day grace period before your cell goes up for sale. You can pay your rent anytime during this grace period with /cell payrent. To access players to your cell, you do /cell allow [IGN] or you can access your gang with /cell gang on/off. A cell can only be raided by the same tier of armour that the highest tier cell guard is able to wear. If you place a godly guard in a T5 cell, diamond armoured players will be able to raid the cell. If you put simple guards in a T3 cell, players will still be able to raid the cell with chainmail gear due to the cell being a T3 cell. It is recommended you use the same tier guard as your cell (i.e simple-T5, uncommon-T4, etc…) Helpful Commands Some of the main commands you will be using as a prisoner are as follows /spawn /sethome /delhome /homelist /withdraw /sethome /pv /msg /dnd /ignore /trade /enchants /staff /servers Gangs Gangs are prisons form of a faction, A group of players teamed up that can form alliances and enemies. For a list of commands for gangs, type /gang help in-game. You can invite 15 players to your gang. You can give any one of your gang members moderator access, which can invite and kick members, and truce/enemy other gangs. You can see a list of gang upgrades by typing /g upgrade in-game. PVP Zones The entire map is PVP enabled, you could technically hit someone in the iron mine if you wish, but it is not recommended because we have 4 types of Prisons Security in our prisons Wardens - Typically found near spawn and near the beginner mine, impossible to kill. Enforcers - Typically found in the lapis/Prismarine mine/Refinery mine. Hard to kill. Guards - Typically found in high tier mines or around the map in meteor spots. Can be killed with ease. Hitman - Found only in the nightmare mine, deals a lot of knockback damage and can be killed. Your items do not drop if you get killed by a warden. The act of “Sui’ing” is when a group of players manages to kill you when you are mining near/next to a guard while getting themselves killed in the process.
