Welcome to KOTH!

Its been great to see so many players getting involved in the KOTH and giving it a shot! Whilst Sovereign Planets have been mainly dominated by the infamous Nightfall, Sahara have been slugging it out for that renowned KOTH lootbag! Watch @LilDaddyDex ‘s perspective below of the first ever KOTH on Sahara Planet!

Run faster than your fellow minerman!

Good ol @Qcy providing us some great tips for pvp again this week. He stumbled across an old HCF tactic players use to run faster! This mechanic has been in vanilla minecraft since the dawn ages and only really known about/used in the HCF community. But Qcy has shard this knowledge with the prisons community and they have sure been practicing! I've seen so many players using this method to chase and escape in the overworld this week, it's great to see!

Diamond Godset 1v1’s!

After taking a break from bullying the iron guys in the diamond mine, the diamond players decided to pick on each other for a bit instead! @Mekzz challenges the diamond bullies to 1v1’s and gives them all a run for their money as they run for the guards! If this guy clicked any faster he may have a stroke, please be careful when playing the craft folks!

Perm Gkit Bonanza!!

@Cilantro33 is among the lucky bunch this week! Strolling around the warzone mining some meteorites he managed to stumble upon a naturally spawned Grim Reaper Gkit. Not only did he find a free gkit he unlocked permanent access to it!​

They logged on mid raid!!

@xPulsar_ is back at it again with yet another pvp/raid video and oh boy this one's great! After some footage of some nice kills at an event he shows some clips of him and his gang raiding a cell. This cell had the infamous drop down water trap that has become very common on prisons. The current setup of defending cells is exactly why we want to make some changes to raiding and how players defend their cells. Be sure to vote on the poll if you haven't already!​

I definitely recommend playing on the Cosmic Client it has so many nice features and quality of life tools that make customising your playing experience so easy! Be sure to check out this video if you've wanted to get on the Cosmic Client but just wasn't quite sure how!​

Animals!
It's about time we added Animals to prisons and what better way to do it than change the ore mining animation into animals! Now every time you mine an ore you will be greeted with a lovely variety of animals! (Hint: You can toggle this off through /options --> Ore Drop Animation)

Currently, Cosmic Prisons is experiencing issues with players being able to keep a stable connection to the server due to issues at the Datacenter.

We have made the decision to whitelist all planets until these problems subside. Unfortunately, this issue is out of our hands and lays with our Datacenter.

We deeply apologise for this issue and will be keeping this post updated when we know more!

Update 1 (05:22 AM CT) : We are currently just running some tests to make sure everything is running smoothly before we bring the network back online! We will keep you updated!

Update 2 (06:03 AM CT) : We are back online! We have enabled 2x XP for the next 2 hours server wide!

He showcased every rank!?!

Our residential troller @MosiacPlayz has been showcasing 1 of every rank since last map for absolutely no reason other than to flex on the haters. This week during a trivia event he won Heroic Rank and showcased it to finish his collection. Chat was not happy , he had completed the most epic showcase ive ever seen! Love him or hate him, that's what I call top quality banter!

Hero Outpost Pvp Montage!

@xPulsar_ makes a pvp montage almost every fortnight without fail, no matter how busy he gets he's very consistent with his pvp uploads. This is for sure where I get my pvp clip fix when im watching prisons videos. Be sure to check him out if your all about the minerman player versus player!

WARNING: the music used in the video is rated 16+ NSFW

The Raiding Godset Creation...
Greetings Prisoners!

So it feels like just yesterday that I was writing my 1 year as admin post on here but believe it or not you guys have put up with me for 2 years now! Well, 2 years and 2 days but I missed the date don't judge me alright!

A lot has changed since I last wrote this post a year ago! From Level 106 releasing to there now being player prestige and the max level being 103, Rep points, the cell update, the pvp update! It has been a rough ride there is no denying that but even after everything you guys continue to prove to me that you are without a doubt (biased opinion here of course) the best community I could ask for <3

Story time!
Over the course of a year we are all bound to have some facepalm moments and this is my favourite collection of them.

During one of our weekly testing days back in Novemeber we had come in to quite some tricky issues with one of the updates! Me and @melsha had been going back and forth with an update as he was making the necessary tweaks and changes needed. I had been called on to Sovereign at the time because there had been some reports of some illegitimate minemen at the Outpost. I dealt with the minemen when I got a message from @melsha saying to reboot dev. So I did just that, except I was on Sovereign still completley forgot and ran the command /stop (basically the same as a reboot but with no countdown!) Needless to say Sovereign were not very happy with this until I gave them an hours Double XP to say sorry.

Valron also got there fair share of facepalm moments when I was doing a mini event on the planet as well! We were doing a fun game of find the flares and me having OP I could spawn flares wherever I wanted and I wanted to drop one under the spawn (not realising that if there are blocks above you the gkit will land on them instead of where I placed the flare!) After...
