    Happy Holidays! We're approaching our final rounds of updates of 2017 (what a year!) We've got A LOT of important updates for you this week so let's dive right in:

    ► OP SkyBlock: Wild Revamp
    Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

    OP SkyBlock: Wild Spawn by Nayonce, Wuwy, TecoMan13

    OP SkyBlock: Wild was the first SkyBlock server on Good Gaming, released over a year ago. While it has withstood the test of time fairly well, we have made loads of advancements to our flagship OP SkyBlock gamemode over the past year, and Wild is slowly falling more and more behind. Our custom plugins are so far ahead of Wild that updating any of them would trigger a chain effect, essentially breaking the entire server. Because of this, we're no longer able to implement performance updates and awesome new features like World Anchors and Block Frames. Maintaining the older infrastructure in Wild also requires quite a bit of extra time and resources.

    With the above in mind, we want to end 2017 by performing a full reset on our beloved OP SkyBlock: Wild server (keep reading, this is NOT the end!), and putting in its place our next generation of Wild (and ohh, will it be wild!!). Check out a few of the new features we'll be adding:
    • Block Frames
      • Like stacked spawners, but with your Iron/Gold/Diamond/Emerald Blocks! Automatically /blocks and stacks from chests when you connect a hopper!!
    • World Anchors
      • Keeps chunks loaded even when you're away!
      • NOTE: World Anchors are in beta. They currently do not keep spawners loaded.
    • PvP Events (Envoys)
    • Future events, such as the Santa Event on Pandora
    • The Kits Panel
    • Re-worked stacked spawner methods
    • [Spawner] Emerald Giants!!!
    • Island Upgrades:
      • Up to 5 10 tiers of island size upgrades for a MASSIVE maximum of 500x500 1000x1000!
      • Insanely up-gradable Cobble Generators - Up to 100% EMERALD BLOCK output!
      • Infinite island member & trusted upgrades! Watch out for that exponential cost increase!
    • All future updates will be streamlined to Wild!!
    Now, I know for many of you this revamp is an update welcomed with open arms (WOOT!). But I also know a lot of Wild players (former and current, myself included) would rather not see all of the progress on there be lost forever. We've put our brains together and listened to feedback from many of you guys to figure out a way to keep a low resource usage, white-listed "Legacy" SkyBlock Wild instance somewhere on our network to serve as a permanent snapshot of all the great builds and progress that was made over there since the start of Good Gaming. So, how does one make the whitelist?

    ► Chest Shops! [Beta]
    Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

    Coming Wednesday is an update for all Prison and SkyBlock servers in the form of: Chest Shops!
    NOTE: This update WILL break all existing chest shops. Simply make them again to have them working. :)

    SkyBlock(s) & Prison(s)

    • Chest shops now support custom price formats using letters, I.E. 1K = $1,000, 1M = $1,000,000.
      • You will still be able to use the old format.
    • Chest shops now display buy/sell prices in a more easily readable format, I.E. 1K = $1,000, 1M = $1,000,000
    • Chest shops can also be created without brackets around "[Shop]" - Should help with those typos :p
    • Chest shops now properly detect your shop limit and correctly adjust when you reset your island or plot.
    [​IMG]
    An early example of the new chest shops
    Prison(s)

    Chest shops are pretty great on Insane Prison. However, we are concerned with how hardcore some of you later game players are able to control the market for e-coins. As the game continues to scale up into the later prestiges, the wealth difference between players at various stages of the game will only become more and more extreme. The first few players to reach prestige 150 will have had the help of eCoins shops to get them there, whereas a fresh prestige 100 won't be able to utilize those same ever-profitable eCoins shops because they can't beat a prestige 150's buying power. That shop mechanic steers dangerously close to a Monopoly for us, so we've taken the time to figure out a way to impose limits on the late game players while still granting them the fair advantages over other players that they deserve.

    • Shops now have a daily transaction limit of "10Q * Prestige^2" OPGG, before they are unusable until the next daily server reboot. For Prestige 100, this means you would have a daily transaction limit of 100QQ.
    This limit may seem high or low depending on what prestige you're currently at, but we want to be sure our first beta run of the transaction limits are not too tight on lower prestiges. Expect us to play around with these numbers in the future. We're also very aware that shops are used for more than eCoins, such as other items & transferring money between accounts. For this reason, we've added one more mechanic:
    • You may exceed your transaction limit if the limit is exceeded on a single sign. For example, if you have a transaction limit of 1Q but make a shop sign for 1S, the 1S shop sign will be usable one time before your transaction limit is considered met.
    If you like to transfer money between alts, this secondary mechanic has a number of potential uses which can allow you to do that while avoiding the transaction limit, so be creative with it!

    ----------

    So there you have it! A GIANT set of updates to close out a GIANT year for GGMC (GIANT spawners, too). As always, let me know your feedback here in the comments section and we can continue to improve our updates as we enter 2018 :)

    I'm truly hyped for skyblock,I feel like and update was much needed.
    As for prison the shop changes will make a huge difference and hopefully will control the market a little.
