Hey Java CubeCrafters!

A few weeks ago, we revealed that we hired two new game developers to help with updates around our Java & Bedrock network. In case you missed that, read this thread, it reveals a lot of our plans for the next month. 👀

Today, we're happy to be releasing a new update for Lucky Islands on our Java network - new Lucky Blocks, new world events, and a new wand?! Read more to know what's in this update 🤯


🍀 New Lucky Blocks

TNT: Drops 3-6 TNT, a lever & a stone pressure plate. Do you dare to TNT jump? :o
Brewing Stand: Places a brewing stand with 1-2 buff or debuff potions. All buff potions are drinkable, and all debuff potions are throwable. Will you get lucky this time?
Farm animals: Spawns a chicken, cow & pig. Friends?
Cactus trap: Traps you in a 3x3 cactus cage. Don't be afraid of the green!
Extra lucky: Spawns 3 lucky blocks in a line. Hopefully you don't get unlucky with these ones! :crossed_fingers:
Steak & porkchop: Drops 5 of the food. Woohoo for more saturation!
Anvil drop: Drops a 3x3 platform of anvils on your head. Hope you have a helmet on!
Horse: Tamed horse & saddle. An animal fit for the titans!
Rock paper scissors: Play some rock paper scissors with the server. If you win, you get a golden apple, but if you lose, watch from above!
Fast pickaxe: Drops a golden pickaxe with 0 durability, efficiency 1337 and unbreaking 15. Mine all these blocks with ease!
New wand - Fake Lucky Block Wand!: Replacing the lucky block trap, we're introducing a Fake Lucky Block Wand! Simply right click with the wand to fling a Trapped Lucky Block to your opponents.

Pretty cool stuff. :o

Thor's Hammer: Drops Thor's Hammer...


🔨 Thor's Hammer

Thor's Hammer is a new addition to the Lucky Islands roster of weapons, accompanying the Fire Sword. Right-click on the Hammer to release a devastating attack on your opponents, knocking them back! It also has sharpness 4, meaning it can also be used as a melee weapon, with a 40 second cooldown. Show 'em chaos!


We think that the possibilities for these weapons are almost endless, so if you have any suggestions for these items, feel free to let us know!


💥 New World Events

What makes Crazy Lucky Islands so crazy? The world events of course! Introducing two new events:
Strength for all: Gives all players strength 1 for 30 seconds... watch out from behind you!
Arachnid Ambush: Spawns a myriad of spiders & cave spiders. Killing them opens a Lucky Block... so you need to be ready for all circumstances!


👾 New Resource Pack & Optimisation

We have reworked our current 3D resource pack, as well as adding a new 2D "Fast" resource pack!
Courtesy of our resident Game Artist @Story , these additions mean that players with lower-end PCs can enjoy our 3D resource pack more, but also have the option to play with an awesome 2D resource pack for a great experience! Take a look!

All of our wands, but in 2D!

💨 New Abilities

What else are you going to be spending your points on, right? Here are some cool new abilities you can now get!
Double Luck: A chance to get a lucky block after you break one! Level 1 gives you a 0.1% chance of getting another, but level 8 gives you a 10% chance... Expensive!
Fire Resistance: Take 50% less fire damage. Level 1 has a 4% chance, but level 8 has a 32% chance!
