Minecraft 1.8.1 has been out for quite awhile and today the server has updated to 1.8.1. This means that you will need to have Minecraft 1.8+ in order to join the server. We recommend that all players user the 1.8.1 update since it significantly reduces the amount of lag on the client’s side. Since 1.8 was a large update with many new items and blocks the server’s world has become incompatible with the update. Due to this the server must be reset. In the wake of this reset comes many new features. A new island level system has been added where your island level will be displayed next to your prefix. For users who are VIP+ you now have access to /chatcolor which will give you a new way to change your chat color. Crates have been added which includes vote, party, and legendary crates/keys. Now when you vote you will receive a vote crate key. This key can be used at /warp crates to open a vote crate. Every 50 votes the server receives a party key will be given to everyone who has recently voted. The party key can be used to open the party crate. Legendary crate keys can be obtained by getting lucky when opening a vote crate or from buying legendary keys from the server’s web store. The legendary crate yields the best rewards. Along with the reset comes new kits. Donors have access to /kit (rank name)reset example: /kit vipreset which will provide diamonds and money. Everyone has access to /kit reset which will aid you with building up your island. We encourage everyone to look at this reset as a new start where you can achieve bigger and better things.
