Survival - PikaNetwork 2020

May 2nd 2020, 18:00 GMT / 14:00 EST / 13:00 CST / 12:00 MT / 11:00 PST


Greetings PikaCrafters,

It's that time again... Survival Reset, A new Season is almost here. We're making some very necessary changes to Survival with this reset, with requested features and patches being added, as well as some changes to the gameplay.

As most of you will know, we have decided to take a different approach to this updated, we opened a suggestion post where you the community could leave your feedback.
We have read all your concerns and suggestions and we are here to meet and exceed your expectations., we did our best to add most of your suggestions!
We understand that there always will be people that will agree with a recommendation and disagree. We, however, did our best to implement as many suggestions as possible and trying to keep everyone happy.

We did our best to keep it as vanilla possible, while still being unique and adding features you don't often see on any other survival server. We created multiple worlds all vanilla generated in 1.15.

1.15 is, however, a new version for us and we don't have an optimized spigot for this YET, since we haven't tested any 1.15 server with many players. We, however, will watch the performance of survival closely to see where things can be optimized and needed to be changed. If you are experiencing lag issues don't think that this will always be like that, let us know when you are experience lag and we will do our best to improve things.


Let's not make it longer and go straight to the details since that's what people are interested in.


You would like to start the season well? With a free rank or some free store credit?

The release of the brand new Survival server is scheduled on Saturday, May 2, 2020, we are expecting the release around 8 PM CET.

Saturday 2nd May 2020
18:00 GMT / 14:00 EST / 13:00 CST / 12:00 MT / 11:00 PST
play.pika-network.net

Please note: The release time can be a couple of minutes later, we are trying to reach 8 PM CET.





Among other things, the following has been changed/updated:


  • NEW! Builds
    • The new map will feature a brand new spawn farming and 1.15 themed!
    • New warps and NPCs around spawn for easy access.
  • NEW! Worlds
    This new season of survival comes with brand new and fresh worlds, and those worlds are all vanilla generated worlds with the version 1.15!
    We, however, have to set a border for each world, not setting a world border was a huge mistake last season, daily made backups of the server were getting way to big, and it wasn't right for the performance either.

    The way we have it set up now will hopefully work better, and we are always able to add new worlds if needed.
    • Spawn world - This world is only used for the spawn area
    • Red world - this is a vanilla 1.15 generated world with a border -15000 -> 15000
    • Blue world - this is a vanilla 1.15 generated world with a border -15000 -> 15000
    • Nether world - this is a vanilla 1.15 generated world with a border -7000 -> 7000
    • End-World - this is a vanilla 1.15 generated world with a border -7000 -> 7000

    • Resourceworld - Due to us setting a world border, did we have to come up with something that will always provide new blocks & items for everyone. That is why we have created a resource world. This resource world will reset every seven days. Claiming inside this world is disabled, and building in this world is not recommended since it will reset every seven days! Like the name already says, this world can be used for resources only!

    • All chunks in those worlds are all already pre-loaded, this took forever todo.
  • NEW! Griefprevtion claiming
    After reading thru all your suggestions and almost every suggestion being about adding the golden shovel claiming, did we have no choice but to do so. So this season claiming will be done with Griefprevtion.
    • Added permission for /trapped
    • Added claim blocks for each donator rank
      • Samurai - 5.000 ClaimBlocks
      • Ninja - 7.500 ClaimBlocks
      • Warlock - 10.000 ClaimBlocks
      • Alchemist - 15.000 ClaimBlocks
      • Wizard - 20.000 ClaimBlocks
      • Noble - 30.000 ClaimBlocks
  • UPDATED! The following plugins have been recoded to work with version 1.15
    • Playervaults
    • Rename command
    • Crates
    • Settings menu
    • Itemstacker
    • Voting
    • Setrank
    • Commandcooldown
    • Vouchers
    • Auctionhouse
    • Trademe
    • All custom plugins
  • NEW! Blackmarket
    The blackmarket trader in spawn will have 3 new items on offer each day, however, these items are to sell. This new NPC has a lot to offer to the economy, it allows players to bulk sell amounts of items at a set price with unlimited stock! These items will swap out after 24 hours and will be unique to this new merchant, meaning you'll need to come back each day to see if there's a deal available for you!
  • UPDATED! You can now craft all blocks
    • Enabled beacon crafting
    • Enabled hopper crafting
    • Enabled enderchest crafting
  • NEW! Clans
    A lot of people suggested removing clans, this was however due to its claiming part. We now created a fully custom clan plugin, this clan plugin will be used to play together. You can NO LONGER CLAIM with your clan, but use grief prevention instead.
    This is all nicely displayed inside a gui, within this GUI is the following displayed.
    • Clan information
    • Clan members
      • Here can you promote & demote your members
      • Kick your members
    • Clan bank

    • Clan Warps
      • Set warps for your clan this can be done with or without a password

      • /clan toggletp - 'Your clan member has disabled teleports'
      • /clan bank
      • /clan level
      • /clan announcement - Sends an message to all online clan players
      • and more..
  • NEW! Player shops
    There will no longer be a shop created by us, you the community will from now on create the economy, we have created a fully custom new shop system. Where you can create your shop by adding a sign with the text [shop] on a chest. All further information needed to create a shop will be displayed within a GUI.
    • All the player shops will be displayed inside /shop
    • Everyone is able to create chest shops, however, donaters have the ability to create more player shops.

Questions & Answers
Q: What will be kept after the reset?
A:
  • Purchased ranks from our store
  • Purchase or won out of crates commands/ranks
Q: What will be lost with the reset?
A:
  • Cash
  • Claims
  • Items
Q: Why did survival reset?
A: Survival just needed a reset, it wasn't updated for months. So to make survival working again was a reset required. So here it is a fresh new survival with updates!

This means all claims, 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 kind of gameplay and style being provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!
We hope to see you in our new Survival server soon!
If you have feedback or any suggestion, let us know we'd love to make this as good as we can.

I'm actually glad that they decided to keep clans but do claims with the golden shovel.
For me this is the best of both worlds , the clan system had good potential but in the last reset it ruined it , now we're integrating it with survival which should make it much better.

minecraft is evolving .. the more features they can provide us is the better ( at least they took my suggestion about combining the golden shovel and clan )
so we wont hv trust issue within the clan member (now i can consider recruiting member to the clan).. coz we can manage the claim system :)

Love the changes! The seperate worlds idea is pretty cool but I think the borders should be a little bigger.
Because:
1. Players with an Elytra can easily travel the distance with the help of rockets.
2. It restricts player builds and exploration greatly when measuring it with time, i.e. as months pass by, whole world will be pretty much conquered with little space left for new or other players to play in.
3. With only an 18k block radius per Red and Blue worlds, things like villages, ocean monuments and wooden mansions would become a great deal in the player base because of the limited spawns.
