Over the last few weeks I have been brainstorming to bring new features to DowsingRod and how to make it more succesful. As I said before, for that to happen things will have to change. In this post you will find everything that will change. Check it out sometimes as I may still alter it now and then.
First of with something that will influence you, the player, the most. Looking at our current /baltop things don't seem really normal. Most rich players still have a residue balance from ages ago. Before I made changes to jobs, voting etc. To change this all players will start of with a clean slate.
What will be removed? I'll list that below.
We will also reset our entire world, towns and nations included. This is necesarry to for our new custom world!
- In-game money
- Experience points
- Playtime ranks
- Jobs and McMMO progression
- Towns & Nations
Now for the revamp, I will be changing a lot.
Skyblock will be removed due to it's impopularity.
The jobs will get removed to balance the economy
We will start using our new spawn built by PrinceBerley
I will add slimefun to give access to many hours of optional gameplay. Slimefun gives you access to various tools, special armor and way and way more.
I will make big changes to the voting system. Firstly I'll add crates, by voting you will get a vote crate key. Per vote you will also get money and Rod points. These points can buy you various things, such as keys for other crates.
We are going back to our old ranking system. Every rank above master will be removed. But! All the perms that they gave will be gained through other ways. I will be adding custom items that you can use to buy these perms. Also, the /rankup command will be removed. Ranking up will be purely based on playtime, just like it used to be.
You probably can't believe what you're reading because I have always been strongly against this, but yes, I will add an admin shop. This has been requested hundreds of times and now it will finally happen. I have not yet decided how the admin shop will work. It might become a simple GUI system to buy and sell stuff at.
I will bring back the quests. All the quests will be handed out by NPC's at spawn, these quests will be job based.
As you see loads will change and this will take some time to prepare and finally realize it. To insure I have enough time to do this there will be no event this month. Events will be back as soon as the revamp is done. I have not set an exact date for the reset + revamp but I'll let you know on time.
Thank you for sticking with us so far, I hope to see you all in the new and improved DowsingRod.
