Creative Overhaul

Cake_Lady posted Jun 5, 17

We will be taking the Creative server down for maintenance and some much needed improvements, starting Wednesday, June 7, 8am PST.  I expect Creative will be down for the remainder of that day and possibly the next day. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We will try and bring creative back up as soon as possible. 

Your creative builds will likely be moved to new plots but you will not loose anything. To get to your plot you can do /plot home. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please post below. 

Thank you all for your understanding!

So I am starting a series im going to call Monday Madness because going forward all our new releases will occur on Mondays, so you all know when to look on the forums to see what may (or may not) be new that week. We have lots of new plans for the summer so stay tuned!

First off, dont forget the Olympics start Saturday June 3 with our opening ceremonies. So be sure and be here! We will be starting things off with some fireworks and an awesome drop party. Check out the Olympics post for more details.

So what is new this week?? MythicDrops! This will be added late Monday. 

With mythic drops you will find some new items that will currently only drop from mobs that naturally spawn in the resource world. Mobs from spawners will not drop mythic items. 

  

Some mobs will be seen as carrying items, but others (like creepers, spiders, endermen, etc) will not show visible signs of carrying items. Once you defeat the mob it will drop its item and you can pick it up. 

Some tools and weapons will be identified:

While others will remain mysterious:

You can also find books. There are three main types of books that you can find: Identity Tomes (used to identify unidentified items as above), Soul Books for Armor and Soul Books for Tools. 

This is a Soul Book for Armor ^^

This is a Soul Book for Tools ^^

The method for using any of these books is all the same, so I will walk you through how to identify an item.

Place both items in your tool bar. Then while holding the book, right click and you should see the following message:

Then switch the item you want to identify to your hand and right click again. You should then see this message:

You might notice that this tool has empty Soul slots. This is where the Soul Books come into play! You can add any Soul Book (with the Tool label) to any tool with an open (Soul) slot. To add a Soul Book, you use the same method as you used to identify the Unidentified item. After adding the Soul book it will show up in the item lore:

These items can be combined on anvils to a certain extent, however not all enchantments or souls may combine, so be aware of that when you are experimenting with different combinations. If you have any questions or comments, please comment below. 

Happy Hunting!

lBuko These are dropping from mob spawners currently. Fyi

We have been working behind the scenes to add some cool new things for you! The most recent addition is Loot Blocks! 

These fantastic blocks are only available in the resource world (/warp resource) and if you find one, punch it until it breaks. You have a chance of finding some great loot! Please note there is also a chance of getting nothing; however we will be adding more loot as time goes on. Currently they only spawn at night so happy hunting!

The next major change that will happen over the next few days is the removal of our current enchantment plugin. The enchantments that people most wanted to keep are Life, night vision, and gears. We will likely find alternates for some of the others. Dash, which people enjoy using for elytra flight will likely be lost but as you can achieve the same thing with rockets, this will create a better demand for an existing item. 

We will also be adding some cool new mobs and a new quest world in the coming weeks, and also companies and diseases. 

Also, dont forget about the ShadowHaven Olympics coming soon!

Custom Enchantments

Cake_Lady posted May 13, 17

Hello all! Once again the Custom Enchantments are up for discussion. I know there has always been good and bad things about the enchantments plugin that we currently have, the biggest being that the vanilla enchants are hard to get through the enchantment table and you can't enchant books.  

I am looking at other options that might allow for the best of both worlds - bring back vanilla enchanting, but make the most popular custom enchantments available through other means.

What I need to know from you is what custom enchantments do you like the most? What ones do you think you couldn't or wouldn't want to live without? 

Redbeard54 Personally, I haven't yet learned how the custom enchants work, so I wouldn't miss them if they left: however,...
Cake_Lady ok those are all the ones i like too =o) We might be able to remove the custom enchants plugin and imitate the popular e...
Sentient_Potato Yeah, those listed so far are pretty great to have. Life on chest, NV for helmets, Speed on boots... To name a few other...

Summer Olympics!

Cake_Lady posted May 5, 17

****I have decided to take the town component out of these games. This year anyone who would like to compete may compete regardless of their town.****

I am so excited to announce that this summer the Olympics will be coming to ShadowHaven! I will be posting the full rules as we get closer to the event, but here are the basics of how things will go:

There will be an overall Individual winner, and individual winners for each event. If you would like to compete for an event, you may register below (post your IGN, town name, and the event you would like to enter). Events will be on a first come first served basis. If someone who signed up for an event is not present at the time of the start (we will NOT wait for you), anyone who is present, may take their place. All staff decisions are final.

And now for the events! All events will take place at 10am PST/1pm EST/6pm GMT
