Hello everyone,


We're excited to announce that this weekend we will be resetting our Survival gamemode. After we first announced our first post about our Summer Update, we have received constant messages across the forums, and in-game that you guys wanted a Survival reset. So we're finally giving you what you guys have been asking for!

Survival Reset
We will be resetting Survival on June 22nd at 2PM EST. We will be whitelisting the server on June 21st at 10:00 PM EST in-order to allow us to have time to prepare the server for the launch. We initially released the Survival gamemode as a smaller server on our network, primarily focused on players that aren't so keen on that pvp mechanics of the KitPvP gamemode. After we launched the gamemode we only fixed some of the minor bugs and issues within the gamemode and left it with a broken, and unbalanced economy. We're planning on changing that with this reset. We're looking into adding new content to the gamemode once we reach phase 2 of our Summer Update. With this being said, you can read down below more about the changes and updates that are coming to Survival, alongside what will be kept from the reset.

What will I keep?
We've created a list of things that will be kept upon reset.
  • Ranks (purchased and won from crates)
  • Perks (purchased and won from crates)
  • Chat Tags

Changes
We're keeping the changes made for the reset fairly simple, as we're working on trying to perfect the gamemode before we start rolling out phase 2 of our summer update. So without further-a-do, here are the changes:
  • Brand new world (we have tweaked the world generation a bit to favor a few other biomes)
  • Addition of a PvP Arena (/warp pvp)
  • Changes to the economy in attempts to make it more balanced

Closing Remarks
Stay tuned for for next week as we have another announcement that we've been working on for quite some time to announce!

Hello everyone,

Today we are proud to announce the first week to our Summer Update, which consists of resetting both bans and mutes. With that being said, we will also be resetting our Skyblock server alongside pushing out a brand new build for our hubs which was created by our fantastic build team and on top of that we will have:

Ban Reset
With the start of our Summer Update, we will be resetting all mutes and bans, thus allowing players to start fresh from a clean slate. This DOES NOT include blacklists, and for players who are blacklisted you may appeal it by clicking here. The ban reset will be occurring on Friday, June 7th 10:00 PM EST along side a newly built hub.

Skyblock Reset
The time has come for our Skyblock server to finally be reset as it has been quite some time since our last Skyblock reset which occurred on February 22nd. We're excited to finally announce that we'll be resetting the server on June 8th at 2:00 PM EST. We will be whitelisting the server on June 7th at 10:00 PM EST in-order to allow us to have time to prepare the server for the launch.

Skyblock
  • Several changes made to the way that redstone operates, you shouldn't see that much of a difference, but it should help reduced lag.
  • Chest-shops added. A tutorial was placed at spawn next to the ore-gen tutorial.
  • Further improvements to be made throughout the week to help improve skyblock's performance.

KitPvP
  • The amount of spam that has been going on with the "I am the real skeppy" and people attempting to fake messages is causing a rule update and a much more strict rule enforcement. Players have never been allowed to impersonate staff, but if they were just joking around we usually let it slide. But from now on due to the HEAVY spam and extreme annoyance from this we will be warning and muting players that do so.

General
  • Mod apps handled, 2 accepted for an interview.


Side note

I also want to take this time to thank everyone for the tremendous support on InvadedLands lately. The playerbase on InvadedLands has not dropped under 100 since Thursday around 3am EST. So it has been about 60 hours since we dropped below 100 players. I don't believe we have ever not dropped 100 players before even for as much as 24 hours!

Also this weekend we maxed out at 340 online! That is a new record for Invaded for most players online without any popular streamers! I still remember InvadedLands being a new server and us being happy we had 20 online at one time. And now for months we never drop under 50 players at any point for the day, thanks everyone! :)

Added:
  • Chests for cobblestone generators have been added back. This has been done to prevent afk mining. For those not aware of what this is; it is an unbreakable chest that has a small chance of appearing in your cobblestone generator. It is there with the sole purpose to prevent players from afk mining, plus when you do open it you can get items from it as an added bonus.
  • /disenchant should be added back next server restart for the ranks that are supposed to have it
Bug fixes/changes:
  • Turned mob griefing off
  • Fixed the issue where ranks could not /fly in the nether
  • Fixed the issue where comet rank only had 7 vaults instead of 10.
  • Later today the issue with space/comet rank not having access to color codes for chat will be fixed.
  • Changed Space rank to be bold so it is more in line with skygod and comet ranks.

Survival
We are pleased to announce that this Saturday! This is something we have been working on for a little while and we're finally ready to release it!
Since this is a new server it may be lacking some things players may be used to on other survival servers so we encourage you to let us know what you want to see on survival for future updates! As well as reporting any and all bugs you may find.
Overall we are really looking forward to this server, we think it will make a great addition to InvadedLands to bring in more players who aren't looking solely for a PvP experience!


Skyblock
The long awaited Skyblock reset is here! Along with it will be new updates, balancing adjustments, and more! This reset will happen Feburary 22nd.
This reset is a FULL reset! All islands will be deleted, all inventories, vaults, enderchests, balances...etc will be cleared!
IS top rewards will not be making a comeback this season. We know that it is a highly anticipated feature however we feel it would be in the best interest of the server to get back on track with updates, improving the server and figuring out how to further balance the economy/ranks to better suit IS top rewards.

This is just a clarification that setting multiple mice, buttons, or using such things as a track pad + a mouse to pvp are not allowed! This is referred to as double clicking and will grant you a higher than allowed CPS and could result in a ban!

This rule was expanded to completely block the sale of ingame items for real life money. Too often do I see players filling chat that they are selling "Full p4 gear for only 3$ Message me!!!" It's silly and from this point on is not allowed.

Stream links were getting way too spammy in chat for many player's liking. From this point on you may still share your stream link as long as it is directly related to InvadedLands, however only 1 time every 5 minutes. Doing so more will result in a mute.

Clarified what we qualify as spam.

This season should end Feb 2nd, but this might change depending on the applications we receive. Applications will then be accepted/denied, and the new season should start around the end of Feb to the start of March.
