    Greetings Prisoners!

    It's been a week already boy does time fly fast! We are charging up this weekend for some big updates here in the near future and we wanted to give you a teaser of what is to come! Let’s get right into it!
    • An Apology
    • Ore Generators and Cells
    • The Great War
    • Player Prestiging
    • Cosmic Client Mapwriter Update
    • Bug Fixes/QOL
    An Apology
    We wanted to start off this post by first apologizing for the recent changes we made to ore generators and the level requirements. There is nothing quite as disheartening as seeing the effect these changes have had to our server. There is no hiding behind how it has effected the playerbase of the server and we want to be as transparent as possible with you guys. Cosmic Prisons means a lot to me and the rest of the staff team and we want to make things right!

    We recently touched base with you guys on our reasoning behind the update and what the problems were here in this post but we admit that the way we tried to address and fix those issues were wrong and as such we aim to fix that today with the following changes.
    Ore Generators and Cells
    All Ore Generators will once again be able to be placed/mined at the same level as unlocking the type of ore BUT you will only receive XP from Ore Generators at a reduced rate of 33% less XP until you hit the required mining levels we currently had set out to unlock the ability to mine/place them in cells.

    We have also tweaked the level requirements for crude ore to be as follows:
    Simple Crude Ore - Level 1
    Uncommon Crude Ore - Level 20
    Elite Crude Ore - Level 40
    Ultimate Crude Ore - Level 60
    Legendary Crude Ore - Level 80
    Godly Crude Ore - Level 101

    The Great War

    It’s what you have been waiting for! The biggest battle in Cosmic Prisons History is about to begin! Sovereign vs Ulu vs Valron! Only one planet can survive! The losing planets will be absorbed by the winning planet!

    Starting tomorrow Saturday 23rd February @ 3PM CST and ending on Thursday 28th February @ 5PM CST players on Sovereign, Ulu & Valron will be battling it out with the winning planet being the first to experience the biggest update in Cosmic Prisons history! We will also be running some new ad campaigns along with this MASSIVE reset to get some new players onto the network! Stay tuned for more details about all the new features we're adding!
    [​IMG]
    So how do you support your planet?
    Players will work to gain shards through mining ores, completing /quests & purchasing them via the Cosmic General at spawn (10,000,000 per Aether Shard). Aether Shards are deposited into your planets fund through the Cosmic General NPC at spawn. The planet with the most shards at the end wins!

    [​IMG]

    Thursday afternoon Prisoners can look forward to the winning announcement

    Want to see how your planet is doing in the /war efforts? Type /war and watch for regular updates in the chat!
    What if players have ranks/gkits on more than one planet?
    Fear not!

    Ranks

    Those with ranks on Valron, Ulu & Sovereign will keep their rank on the winning planet. If players have a rank on multiple planets, they can look forward to receiving a rank note on the winning planet for the lesser of the two ranks (their highest rank will be carried to the winning planet).

    /gkit and /qkits

    Players will have access to all gkits/qkits they currently hold. If you have Vulkarion on one and Slaughter on the other, you will have both on the winning planet. Gkit beacons will be provided if you have the same gkit on multiple.

    /showcases

    Showcases will be transferred to the winning planet (Even if you have a full showcase on both planets)

    PV, Home & Showcase Expansions

    These will all be transferred to the winning planet also. (Note: Expansions will not go over the allowed limit, this means if you have the maximum amount of PV's on both planets you will not have any more than that on the winning planet)

    Reputation Points

    Will be allocated before the start of the war.

    Wait so this is an event AND reset?

    Yup! You got it right! This is a competition between Valron, Sovereign & Ulu. The planet with the most shards at the end of the week will be the remaining planet and will reset! Both planets will enjoy Carnage while the battle continues on! The same rules will apply with this reset as with any.
    Carnage
    Now we couldn’t just say goodbye without giving it a proper Prisons send off! To do this we have a bunch of awesome stuff lined up for you guys over the next few days starting Monday!

    Admin Events
    Reset Kits
    Video montage competition
    and who knows what else the Owners and Admins will come up with
    ;)

    Admin Events

    Admin Events will happen throughout the week, from parkours to cat n mouse to meteors and whatever else we may come up with!

    Reset Kits

    Reset kits are there to spice things up in the final few days of the map! Available to all players every 5 minutes you will be able to get yourself a set of OP gear (tiered to your level so that you are capable of wearing it of course) getting more OP every single day leading up to the reset! You will be able to access this gear through /resetkit starting from Tuesday!

    Video Montage Competition

    We all have some great memories from this map and we figured what better way to show this than through some great montages! Starting now and ending at first boot of the new planet you have the opportunity to compete to win yourself a custom title of your choosing to keep forever yes that includes resets, keep in mind the title will be required to follow the rules of the server!

    You can submit your montage on the threads found pinned under general on the forums.

    Note the video must be 10 minutes or less and follow the rules of the server!

    Once the submission time has ended a new post will be posted and pinned under general where all the submission will be found and you will have 72 hours to vote on your favourite montage!

    Reset Details

    The winning planet will reset this Friday 1st March
    What will be kept after reset:
    Ranks (Yes even those won from crates & CC’s)
    Titles
    /gkits
    /qkits
    /home, /showcase & /pv Expansions
    What will not be kept after reset:
    Cash balance
    Cells
    Inventory & Private Vaults
    /gkit levels
    /qkit levels

    Player Prestiging

    As mentioned in recent posts with planet resets we will be introducing a new levelling system to Prisons! We wanted to dive a little more deeper into this and how it will all work!

    Prestiging unlocks the ability for you to grind to a higher level each time you do so! When you first start out you will be able to mine up to level 100 at which point you will be capped out and you will unlock the ability to prestige! Prestiging will reset you to level 1 but will also give you the ability to mine up to level 101!

    Each time you prestige you will unlock the ability to cap out 1 level higher than the previous prestige up to a max of level 103! Here are the CURRENT perks for each level past 100:
    Level 101:
    +50% Quest Token Rewards
    -25% Teleport Cooldowns
    +1 Quests
    Extra Quest Rerolls
    High Security Cells
    Godly Crude Ore

    Level 102:
    +25% Energy from the /tinkerer
    Emerald Ore Generators (Full XP Gain)
    +1-6% Chance boost while enchanting pickaxes
    +1 Quest
    +1 Quest Shop Item
    Maximum Security Cells

    Level 103:
    +40% Energy from mining
    Instant-tp from non-pvp zones
    +1 Quest
    200% Ore Sell Prices
    VIP Security Cells
    With these changes, we are also making some changes to the grind and how long it takes for you to grind through the levels! While we don’t want to give you guys the exact numbers just yet I can tell you that the initial grind from 1-50 will not be changing but the grind from 50-100 will be reduced by roughly 35%~ and the grind from 100-101 101-102 ect will also be changing.

    We will also be introducing some nice chat/overhead text for you guys to show off your current prestige to over players! Players will also be able to hover over your prestige to see when you prestiged to prove who really did hit that prestige first!

    Cosmic Client Mapwriter Update
    We are also introducing an update to the Cosmic Client today! Live now you may have noticed your mapwriter gives you a ton of information! It will now show you each tiered zone and where on the map it is, the locations of each mine and even the spawn locations for merchants!

    Sahara is the original planet for Cosmic Prisons in other words it is grandfathered into the server (Will never go into a war)

    3 planets resetting and Sahara's reset just around the corner what would the point in a Lootbox be?
