πŸ“™ New! Spell Books
It is about time for you to start enchanting your Mine Suits with these newly introduced Spell Books. Each Spell Book has its own unique buff to your Mine Suit and has to be applied to all of your Mine Suit pieces in order to be active.
You can obtain a Spell Book by trading in 5,000 Gems in the /enchanter.
Upon combining the 5,000 gems to get a Spell Book you will obtain a Mystery Spell Books

Revealing the enchant inside this Mystery Spell Book is simple, just right-click it and let the magic do its work.
After a short animation, you will be given the enchantment inside the mystery spellbook.

There are 4 Spell Books that you can collect, and those are:
Lucky Vision - Increase the rewards from Lucky Blocks by 50%
Gem Stone - A chance to find gem boxes when mining
Double Down - Double the mine suit gems you find
Multify - Increase the chance of finding mine suit ores by 10%.
πŸ’° New! Gang Bank
A new way of sharing valuables with your Gang. The Gang Bank! We have had the question to add a way to transfer Gems to each other, we are not a fan of this idea, however, we will be adding something to make it possible to share gems, and more, with your Gang; The Gang Bank.
This bank is a virtual storage place for you and your gang, where you can store all sorts of currencies. Each transaction will be logged as well, so you will never have to be scared that some gang member can secretly rob your bank.
The following currencies can be stored within your Gang Bank:
Money
Tokens
Gems
Upon typing the /gank bank command you will be greeted with the bank main menu.
kKu3JNy.jpg
Here you find 3 options to deposit or withdraw the 3 listed currencies from or to the Gang Bank.
At the bottom, you will find a paper, which will take you to the Gang Bank logs. Every transaction in the bank is logged and can be traced back to the exact time and date of when it happened.

πŸ¦’ New! Pets
We decided to do a full pet overhaul. This means we took a step back and looked at the pet system, and together with community feedback made the required changes to the pets for OpPrison.
Pets will now come in 3 different tiers.
Common
Rare
Legendary
Previously a higher rarity meant better odds for abilities to activate, however for this season we are taking it even a step further. Per rarity, you will get an extra ability.
So Common has 1 Ability, Rare gets 2, and Legendary gets a total of 3 abilities! This makes the impact on pets more significant.
Purchasing a pet has also been revamped, you will now be able to buy a limited amount of eggs each week, and each egg has a different chance of being one of the 3 rarities, so it's always a gamble which pet you're getting next.
And you thought that's all? Well no! There's more! We removed all the existing pets and replaced them with 7 unique pets. Those are:
Monkey Pet
Tarantula Pet
Drug Lord Pet
Mole Pet
Engineer Pet
Gladiator Pet
⛏️ Updated! Pickaxes
The looks of a pickaxe have been completely revamped. To keep up with the current growing quality of PikaNetwork we reworked one of the main mechanics in the game, the displaying of pickaxe lore.
We took the time to make something crazy for it, within one quick view you will be able to see everything that is on a pickaxe, from gems to scrolls and enchantments.
And all of that in 1 pretty display.
On top of that, the issue with prestige resetting on pickaxes has also been fixed within this pickaxe overhaul.

πŸ’Ž Updated! Gem Enchantments
With the introduction of the new Spell Books, we also took the time to do some required changes to the newly introduced Gem Enchantments.
The price of a Gem Enchantment book has been decreased to 2,500 Gems per book. Which is a lot cheaper compared to the old price of 3,750.
But with the new Spell Books costing 5,000 Gems, we wanted to give you a better choice, early game armor & weapon enchantments, or end-long game Spell Books to enhance your overall experience.
Besides balancing out the price we also added a handful of new enchantments for your armor & weapons as well.
Here is a list of new enchantments:
Weapons:
Slayer I-V - Deal more damage to cave combs
Thief I-III - Chance to steal 5% of a players balance
Token Greed I-V - Chance to obtain tokens from killing cave mobs
Fast Hands I-II - Chance to receive haste on damaging players or mobs
Armor:
Souvenir I-X - Chance to get back your item after dying
Escapist I-X - Chance to receive a big speed boost on being low health
Angelic I-IV - Chance to burst you back into life when being in low health
🎩 Updated! Mafia Family
As well as the pickaxe UI update we decided it's for the best to do the same with Mafia. We have added more info messages and a broadcast upon voting for a Mafia family and when the voting has ended and a new mafia family has been elected.
This should make the players more aware of the existence of the Mafia Family and hopefully boost the impact of votes as well.
Speaking of votes, after receiving the community feedback we decided to implement a voting boost per donator rank. Depending on your rank your vote will now count more than once. Here is the updated list of the impact of your votes:
Player - 1 Vote
Smuggler - 2 Votes
Criminal - 3 Votes
Gangster - 4 Votes
Hitman - 5 Votes
Captain - 8 Votes
Boss - 10 Votes
πŸ“‘ Misc. Updates & Changes
Multiple small changes have been made, some of these small changes are the following:
  • Fixed private mines having holes in them
  • Added token kit once in the normal once kit
  • Fixed prestige max level for prestige 1 & 2
  • Updated the /payouts menu
  • Fixed supply drop location
  • Added a new seasonal crate
  • Added a new reset loot box
  • Revamp scrolls gkit
  • Fixed auctionhouse display
  • Fixed all crate rewards
  • Fixed slimes not spawning in private mines
Please note: Any suggestions for changes feel free to leave them in the comments.

❓Question and Answers
Why did OpPrison reset?

OpPrison is already up for some time. A reset has to happen to change and improve with lots of excellent new features, to make the game more exciting for you all! This then allows you players to have a fresh start and new players can begin to play without any significant disadvantage.
This means all cells, items, money and the map will be reset. Nothing will be kept leftover from the previous map. Of course, all purchases will be reissued so nobody will be out of pocket in that regard. I know this must be a disappointing revelation for a lot of you, but think about the exciting new changes, the new alliances you can forge, the new map, the new features and updates the different kinds of gameplay, and style is provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!
Below you can find what you will lose and one for what you will keep
What will I keep?
  • Purchased Ranks & Rank Upgrades
  • Purchased Perks
  • Won out of crates commands/ranks

What will I lose?
  • Your cells
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and exp
  • Chatcolor permissions.
  • Seasonal ranks and perks
  • Player levels & their colors + The premium pass

We hope to see you on our new OpPrison server soon!
If you have feedback or any suggestion, let us know we'd love to make this as good as we can.
Thanks

Worst reset yet? Very few changes affect gameplay, so it will be another boring season.

First, you said that having more content at my suggestion leads to a worse decision, but having less content (and some content added) makes it a worse season? I don't know maybe newer content will be produced at some point, this is just getting started.

OpPrison is filled with so many features. We can not keep adding more and more features without fully polishing out the existing once. An example for this is Pets. We are ofcourse always looking to add some new things that you can explore and play around with, but for this season we decided to take a step back with the amount of new features we are adding and polished out & tweaked the existing ones again.

Once we feel like the gamemode is in a good state, all features are working as expected and the players are enjoying it we can be looking in to whole new aspects as suggested by you or @TryHardMarktin
We are ofcourse excited for new content as much as you are but with the frequency of the resets I feel like this was a better choice to make.

Feel free to contact me with any ideas you have in private as well of-course! I am happy to listen :)

I don't want new features. All existing features need balancing and improving, but nothing like that has happened except for pets. Players are losing interest and not enjoying mining because it is too hard to prestige. Just look at the prestige leaderboard!

Also, how do you expect players to earn 5k gems for 1 spell book when they are so difficult to obtain? And to add to that, you need 4 of the same enchant for it to work, and then they aren't even a 100% chance to apply. Even the top players haven't obtained that many gems in the entire season using 2 stacks of abandoned crates a week, so normal players have no chance.

You have your answer here. Like I previously said on my thread, it is serve as an end game material. There are other ways to get obtain gems other than opening abandoned crates.

Obviously you don't understand what I am trying to say. You earn about 5 gems an hour from mining without treasure seeker. If you are going to need over 100k gems for a full spell book set then it will be impossible. They won't earn many from prestiging because it is too hard. Let's wait till the season is over and see how many players have them.

Also, if they are end-game items then getting more tokens or minesuit gems is pretty pointless so I can guarantee this feature won't be used.

There's this thing called Gang Bank now where a new way to share gems to each other. I'm sure if you have a gang that's dedicated in grinding gems, you would possibly get it. You just need to come up with a plan. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰
