So, so, so many of you have been asking when the reset is for SkyBlock, I've talked with skeppy and we have puts some plans together and have finally worked out an ETA.
We should be resetting Skyblock AROUND May 1st! Keep in mind however that, that is not the specific day, it may be the day of may 1st, could be the day after, could be a week after. That is just the general day we are shooting for right now, and we will give you all more specific info as the time comes.

What to Expect:
  • A new crate!
  • Several new plugins to keep things fun for those who don't want to PvP or hang out on their island all day.
  • Daily reward system
  • A ton more advertising, we want SkyBlock to have a ton of players to make it all the more fun, meaning we want to have more advertisement to bring more players for the server to really amp up the fun factor!

Been a lot of questions about the new helper rank, thought it best to prevent a lot of new posts asking questions to just simply make a Q&A post where you can ask all your questions in 1 place.

PLEASE REFER TO THE ORIGINAL POST & READ QUESTION HERE TO SEE IF YOUR QUESTION IS ALREADY ANSWERED BEFORE YOU ASK HERE!

FAQ:

When will Helper apps be open?
I'm shooting for around the 20th April, give or take. Currently helpers will only be chosen via invite from an admin.

Will helper be easier to get than T-Mod?
Theoretically, yes, as there is less perms with the rank, less responsibility, less experience required, and less ability to abuse the rank it will likely be easier to achieve for most.

Will there only be 1 app now and if my app is good enough I will skip helper and can get T-Mod?
No, there will be 2 completely separate applications, Helper is in no way a mandatory rank that must be achieved ever, you may apply for Helper, or apply for T-Mod, it is up to you.

Can I get Helper even if I've applied for T-Mod?
Yes, we may offer a certain player who has applied for T-Mod the ability to become a helper if we feel they would be a good staff member, however feel at the same time they lack certain abilities to become a T-Mod.

Can I apply for both Helper and T-Mod at the same time?
No, you may only have 1 application open at a time. You may either try for T-Mod, or try for Helper. This is mainly due to prevent flooding of many apps for both T-Mod and Helper. And it will help us choose certain players for a specific role and not read 2 of their apps, one for helper and one for t-mod, and be forced to decide which to give them.

Is it possible to be promoted to T-Mod if I get helper first?
Yes, getting helper first can be a good stepping stone for those who feel are not quite ready to apply for T-Mod Yet. We may in the future even add a way for Helpers specifically to apply for T-Mod after being Helper for a certain amount of time.

What perms will they have, and what will they be able to do?
Please refer to the original post: https://invadedlands.net/threads/helper-rank-being-added.7253/

Will Helpers be able to spectate hackers and report them?
Currently no, /v has potential for abuse and since Helpers won't vetted as much as Mods they will not receive this perm. We may however implement a feature in the future for Helpers to be able to more easily spectate, record, and report hackers to other staff with no potential for abuse.

Idiots have been getting snowballs from lootdrops and crafting snow blocks then abusing them to climb walls and stuff.

Added in a plugin to prevent the crafting of snow blocks. Any player found with snow blocks will have them removed from their inventory, and as always any player caught glitch abusing will be temp banned.

Currently there is NO application process for the helper rank! Currently players if chosen will be invited to the Helper team by an admin. I intend to create an application process for players to apply for helper in the upcoming week or two.

Hello Invaded players, I have decided to add in a new rank. Basically it has come to my attention that I am in need of some help. Particularly in the area of player reports and some select Staff applications. I have to handle most Appeals, apps, and player reports as well as other InvadedLands work, schoolwork and a regular upload schedule for yt. Point is I am very busy and don’t always have the time or energy for a lot of player reports.

Meaning I have decided to create the Helper rank, which sole purpose will to be help me and the server out by muting chat offenders in game and helping out on the forums with help posts and player reports.

Helper will also act as a stepping stone on your way to T-Mod on certain servers. We may also recommend certain Moderator applicants receive Helper instead of T-Mod as we feel they may not yet be qualified for moderator (e.g. minimal staff experience, not too much time on the server...etc) However we want to still offer them a chance to learn and one day recieve their chance.

What all will Helper will have and be able to do:

In-game:
  • Since the rank tasks ingame are less demanding than that of a Mod, Helpers will have global Helper rank.
  • Ability to host all eveents.
  • Helpers will have perms to mute/kick
  • Perms to check history of players
  • Helpers will NOT have perm to ban or tempban players and are not expected in any way to interfere with a hacker (mute/kick them...etc), if a Helper thinks a player is hacking they MUST report it to higher staff or record and report them.
Forums:
  • Move/delete posts
  • Warn players for breaking forum rules
  • Ability to handle chat related Player reports and select Staff Applications (more details once hired as helper)
  • Helpers will not have perm to forum ban or have perm to view ban appeals.

Discord:
  • Perm to delete messages
  • Access to certain staff related channels.
  • Kick members for breaking certain rules
  • Manage NickNames
  • Manage text Messages.

Required duties Helpers MUST do!

Anything listed below is a duty that Helpers are 100% expected and required to do as a helper, failing to do even 1 of these things on a regular basis will be grounds for a demotion.

  • Moderating chat ingame
  • Helping players ingame
  • Actively handling chat offense player reports (Handling them preferably daily as to not pile up, however Helpers would only be required to handle them at least on a weekly basis)None
  • Marking hacking offense player reports for higher staff to handle.

Duties that are NOT required but recommended as Helper!

The duties below are things that are not required for Helpers to do however they can choose to do so if they want. And doing these could help them with a better chance at one day being promoted to T-Mod on a select server.

  • Replying the help posts on the forums
  • Handling certain staff apps that are blatantly not qualified to be Mod (e.g. Player doesn’t fit every requirement to even apply.)
  • Moderating the voice and text channels on discord
  • Recording and reporting hackers

In the future as the staff team grows I do intend to add in a system for Helpers to spectate, record, and report hackers to higher staff members specifically. This would act as a training phase for helpers on their way to achieving the T-Mod rank if they so desire.

Due to the number of troll applications the requirements to even be able to view the staff application form has been changed so you need to be an E-Mail validated user AND you must have 25 forum posts!
If you do not fit both requirements you will not even be able to view the Staff Application form.
This should not affect any ordinary user wanting to apply for staff as the requirements are very minimal. It should only affect any of those who wish to troll and waste the time of staff.

This is just a post listing all of the updates that occurred both today and yesterday.

KitPvP
  • New Loot drop event added. They will happen once an hour every hour as long as there is at least 45 players online. There are 3 rarity chests. Regular chest which anyone can open at any time, rare chest which you must right click and continue to look at for 5s to unlock it. And the legendary chest which you must look at for 8s to unlock. This was added to help bring a change of pace to KitPvP and give players something to do and look forward to as well as provide a chance for better gear for f2p players.
  • Auction house added (/Ah) Not much to say there other than it is a place to sell your crap risk free. Default players can sell up to 1 items at a time, and any ranked player can sell up to 3 items at one time.
  • Mythical Crate Added. This is a new temporary crate that has been added to KitPvP. The best part about this crate is you can win the ability to host one of the events by winning the permission for said event. And even win a prize that gives you access to host all events. Each event has a 24h cooldown.
  • Kill Stat Reset. The kill stats have been reset and prizes will be given out shortly to the top 5 who made it!
KitPvP V2
  • Loot Drop event added as well. It will happen 1 time every hour however the player limit here is 30 players.
  • Auction house added as well, default players can sell up to 1 item at a time all ranked can sell up to 3 at a time.
  • Mythical Crates have not been added but will Soon! We still need to fix some bugs and add some features to the events to V2 before we can add in the Mythical crate.
We would appreciate any and all feedback about this update, if you like the auction house, if you like the lootdrop, should the drop be more often, less often, how do you like the loot in it...etc

Random idea-
New events will be added this weekend (90% chance it'll be done)
With these new events coming, (it will remain unnamed which events rn) I came up with an idea for winning an event you get an 'Event Key,' you can win super good, or super bad or just average items.

simply vote yes or no whether you like this idea or not, or if you have any suggestions just comment!

So we've had the new scoreboard system for a while on V2
We want to know if you all want us to put the old scoreboard system (with top 5) so it'll completely fix healthbars issue but you'd lose your stats.
Would you guys prefer if we reverted back to the old Scoreboard system & Top 5 or keep the current plugin?
Vote in the poll to let us know or just reply letting us know or why not.
If we went back to the old scoreboard your stats would be reset
