    31-05-2018 - Lucky Islands and Battle Zone.jpg
    Hello CubeCrafters,

    Are you feeling lucky? As this week we've released 2 updates. Battle Zone and a Lucky Islands map update.

    We also have a SALE on our Store! There's up to 40% OFF ranks, Cubelets, T-shirts and more.
    Visit our store HERE to grab yourself a shiny new rank!



    Battle Zone
    It's that time of week again when we bring you another amazing Battle Zone update!

    Rocket Launchers:
    Battle Zone has recently added explosives, so now it's time to add more! Player requested we add Rocket Launchers, well now they're in Battle Zone! Rocket Launchers shoot extremely fast rockets which damage and destroy nearly anything in it's path. Each launcher has a clip size of 1, so requires a reload after each shot.

    Resourcepack texture for the Grenade Launcher.

    Death Messages:
    Battle Zone now has unique weapon and situation death messages. If you shoot a player, their death message will now state that you shot them. If you blow a player up with a Grenade, Rocket Launcher or Egg Launcher their death message will state that you blown them up. Some of the death messages are completely mad and some are generic :D

    I really like that eagle :( ... Couldnt you place it higher up and set the max height lower than it? Or maybe add an invisible ceiling?

    Amazing update! I dont really like that the slabs got changed it mine but okay.

    [​IMG]
    Currently the red and green slabs are higher. I think the green one should be higher (like it changed in this update) but the red should stay low (like in this screenshot) I feel like it looks better but that's just my opinion.

    Battlezone getting some sweet, sweet love ever since its release. NICE.

    Also, since when was there a trend to make update posts for multiple games per week?
    I like this trend. Keep this trend going forever, and I'll be a happy camper.
