Today we announce the newest addition to Havoc -- Towny Earth!
Towny Earth contains a ton of new features and improvements from Towny. The goal of Towny Earth is to shift the economy to be player-run, to create a stronger community that encourages trading between players. All the information about Towny Earth is below!
Towny Earth uses a 1:1000 scale map of the Earth for you to explore and build your town on. Using the link here, you can find exactly where you are on the map.
Player positions, towns and claimed regions will also show up on the map!
The map of the Earth has limited structures and resources available. To give everyone a fair chance at finding all the resource they may need, there is a separate resource world available. You can find it using the /warp menu.
The economy is now fully player-run, with no server shop. This means any items you need, will have to be collected by yourself or bought from others. But don't worry, we've made it much easier to trade between players to combat this!
Player Shops are a new addition to Towny. These shops can be rented for different prices depending on the size of the shop. You can customize the interior of the shop however you want, and sell or buy items using chest shops! Below is a look at one of the shops that can be rented.
The Auction House lets you put items for sale so that players can buy them while you are offline. You can have up to five items in the auction at one time.
Your primary source of income will likely be through Jobs. Jobs pay you for doing almost any in-game task. By default, you can join up to two jobs at a time, however you can purchase a third job using in-game money at the Perk Shop. As you increase your level in a job, you will earn more money per action.
Towny remains the primary way to claim land, however various aspects of Towny have changed too, such as:
- Daily upkeep increases based on number of town blocks claimed
- Bonus town blocks can be purchased in-game
- Town Flight added
- Towny War system added
- Jail plots added
By default, players who have the Mythical rank are able to fly within their towns. Anyone can purchase this ability from the Perk Shop using in-game money.
Towny uses a new war system that allows nations to declare war on each other. No land can be lost from warring, and nations can remain neutral by paying a daily neutrality cost, which prevents them from being attacked. Towns which are not in a nation cannot be attacked. More information can be found in-game with /help.
The Black Market is a special shop available to VIP+ which opens every two hours, for five minutes. It contains powerful weapons, armor, tools and potions which have custom enchantments.
A new addition to Towny is the Perk Shop, which lets you purchase special commands and abilities with in-game currency. Most of these abilities are given to ranked players by default.
Pets are custom-made animals that allows you to have a little bit of customization through the server! You can actually make your own and if it's good enough, it may be added into the game itself! More information on this can be found through the discord towny-pets page.
A short distance away from spawn is a Colosseum-style PVP arena. Anyone can enter the arena at any time and prove their fighting abilities. Choose your fights wisely!
Towny now has five different types of crates available:
- Vote - Vote up to five times a day to receive vote crates!
- Treasure - Contains money and valuable items!
- Spawner - Contains all kinds of different mob spawners!
- Booster - Contains different experience boosters!
- Pet - Contains unique pets to collect!
- Weekly kits for ranked players
- Ability to silk-touch spawners added
- mcMMO major visual improvements
- More support via /help command
- tons of UI changes to make things pretty
We've installed a plugin to track and rollback griefs, although do be warned griefing is allowed in the resource world. We've also fine tuned a lot of server settings so it should be way less laggy than current Towny.
We hope that you enjoy this completely new, refreshed Towny! If you experience any issues, report them using the forums or let a staff member know. More updates to come in the future!
