Hello CubeCrafters!

As you might have noticed over the past few months, we have been working on implementing many Quality of Life features! In this thread, you will find some highlighted changes, a changelog with credits to the original suggestions, and a credits section for everyone that was involved in this project!

🎉 Parties and friends changes!

A highly requested feature for our Bedrock network has been the addition of party chat! Until recently, the network only contained a global chat. With the Quality of Life changes, we have added a party chat and a team chat. We hope that this had made playing games with your friends even more fun.



On Java, it is often very hard to notice your party chat due to all the kill messages in the chat box. We have changed the party chat colour to white so that it is easier to scan through your party messages in chat!

As you might have noticed, we have also changed the way your friend's list looks. It now not only shows your offline friends in alphabetical order, but it also shows the location of your online friends.





🌎 More consistency across our networks!

With this update, we aimed for much more consistency across both of our networks. An example of this is our revamped statistics menu! The menu now contains statistics of every single game that we have on Java, so it is easier to check your own statistics or your friend's.


We also added an option to remove the texture pack for Battle Zone, as this was already an existing feature for Lucky Islands and Among Slimes.



🔁 Play again auto mode!

As you know, on Bedrock you get sent straight back to the lobby after a game if you don't press 'play again'. Everyone had to run from spawn, back to the NPC. To help with this we have added play again auto mode, players will now be sent to a new server after their game has finished. This system can be enabled either through typing /playagain automode or by enabling it in the navigator menu.




🧑‍💻 New commands introduced!

We have introduced a few new commands, which are mostly shortcuts for already existing ones. We noticed quite a few commands were difficult to type or were very long, so by adding these shortcuts, everyone should be able to use these commands within seconds. Most of these have been added to both of our networks, although a few are only on Java.

Shortcut commandOriginal command
/Cha (Java)/Challenges
/Mp (Java)/Multipliers
/Ach (Java)/Achievements

/Pa/Party add <player>
/Fl/Friend list
/Fa/Friend add <player>
/Ps/Party status
/Sb hub/Skyblock hub
/Sb overworldNo previous command
/Sb netherNo previous command

Commands like /ignore and /stats have also been added to our network! /ignore was already a working feature on Java, but it is now functioning on Bedrock as well. You can easily check your statistics on Java now by typing /stats.

You should add these to the /help menu, otherwise only a small percentage of people will know about them

Hi are you available? I got false muted automatically for trying to post an appropriate link. I tried private messaging a mod on Discord and I cannot send private messages.
