    Greetings Prisoners!

    Yes, yes we’ve heard the rumours too, can it be true? A new Prison? A new series with Poofless?!? Absolutely! And a whole new take on the Cosmic Prisons experience with an entirely new map, new features and more! Introducing: Zyphon
    • Map Specifics
    • New Features
      • The Jail (Starting Zone)
      • /mines warps
      • Daily /levelcap
    Map Specifics
    Breathtaking new build sporting a vast overworld, intricate mines, new /spawn, hidden easter eggs and some new features to balance the whole Cosmic Prisons Experience!​

    New Features:

    The Jail (Starting Zone)
    Get ready to jump in! Aimed at giving all new Prisoners a crash course in the basics The Jail will be sure to help you get your feet wet and beneath you before throwing you out in the cold cruel world!

    For those experienced veterans out there, we understand that you may want to simply bypass the explanation and we’ve accommodated you (and your alts) with a simple command. Those wishing to bypass The Jail can simply execute /tutorial skip or /skip to be off and on your way!​

    /mines warps
    A whole new means of transportation! Having to run back and forth to mines can feel tedious, and we empathize with you, so starting with Zyphon, we’re introducing a more efficient means to get to the mines you have previously been to; /mines.​

    Once a player has visited and mined ores within a mine their /mines menu will automatically update to include it and provide a means to easily warp there. Simply left click the mine in your /mines GUI and you’re on your way!​

    Daily /levelcap
    We are always constantly looking at how to better improve the grind at the start of a new planet. Resets and releases are so important, getting a foothold into the competitive side of Prisons dictates you must do your best to keep up with the rest and oftentimes players will go to extreme lengths for that competitive edge. As well, we recognize that alts are an absolute must, we all need our ore generators pumping away at max capacity allowing us infinite enchantments, gear and cold hard cash! Many players in the community have requested that we revisit alts, account sharing, and look at a means to balance the initial grind, the experience, and the safety of keeping your account secure. After months of brainstorming, we’ve come up with a solution that will help balance the equation. Introducing: Daily Level Caps.
    • Based on the age of the map
    • Increases exponentially as the map ages
    • NOT based on player limitations
    • Allows for balanced grinding while still being able to participate in planet events
    Whether you race to reach each level cap daily or you choose to putter around and binge grind later, Daily Level Caps allow players the opportunity to grind, balances the player experience and removes the necessity to share accounts.​

    Yes, you can still boost your buddy, and your buddy can still boost you, however, there will be a limit as to what level you can acquire.

    Once you have hit the level cap you can still:
    • Mine
    • Sell Ores
    • Gain Energy
    • Extract EXP (to boost your buddies)
    For example:
    If you join the map on Day 4 and the Daily Level Cap for Day 4 is level 70, then you will be able to grind continuously up to level 70.

    If you join the map on Day 1 and the Daily Level Cap for Day 1 is 40 then you can mine to level 40.


    The Daily Level Cap increases exponentially as the map ages until Day 18 where you are able to cap out at Level 106. An entirely new experience opening doors for more than just grinding, but outposts, player interactions, meteors, meteorites, and more, and we can’t wait to see how this new feature changes the dynamics of Prisons! You can confirm what the Daily Level Cap is currently at by running /levelcap.

    Remember this is a first, so as much as we have tried to ensure it is balanced, it may still require tweaks as we move forward! Once the planet is released and you’ve had some time to experience it, be sure to submit your suggestions on the forums, we look forward to hearing what you have to say!​

    well.... it prooves youre hungry for money... most planets are already dead, there is never more than 300 players on any planet, only happens on sov rarely, now with 6 planets the same thing will happen that happened to ulu, everyone will play zyphon at release then it will go down to 20 players playing on average and 15 of them afking a cell, it totally ruins the upcoming reset of ulu aswell, @XsSlayeR3 people will just P2W the first 2 weeks and thats all yous want and i know that for a fact, yous do not realize it will absolutely kill all planets for the 1st 2 weeks them zyphon will die out aswell, sorry slayer but this is the biggest mistake yous have made, i can predict it
