    Hello CubeCrafters,
    Today we’re bringing you a full Survival Games overhaul! This includes new maps, kits, voting and a new TEAM mode!​

    Lobby
    [​IMG]

    The build team has redesigned the lobby to follow the new layout. There's a vortex jump, parkour, a selfie area and a few easter eggs around the lobby too! The lobby now contains quick join armour stands. Premium users can also take advantage of the Map Selection by right clicking the armour stands next to each sign board. The lobby now also has leaderboards for both Top Solo Winners and Top Team Winners!

    Make sure to follow our Build Team on Twitter HERE!​

    If pictures and text bore you, then here's a cinematic made by @Alex_de_Grote one of our Builders! Massive thanks to him for it.



    Solo Survival Games
    We’ve updated our Solo Survival Games to have new kits and ton of new achievements. Please note that teaming in Solo Survival Games is now a punishable offence. The staff team will start enforcing these rules in a week or two to give you enough time to transition.

    Don’t worry your Survival Games statistics are still the same!​

    Team Survival Games
    We’ve added a brand new team mode to Survival Games. Teams are currently either 2 or 4 large. To join the team games simply click the “SG Teams” signs. Team sizes are shown by a number in square brackets like this “[2]” or in the map name if you're joining via the Map Selection.

    Teams also now have statistics and achievements!​

    Voting
    We’ve added Voting to Survival Games! You can now vote for Chest Types & the time of day! Chest types include Basic, Normal and Overpowered. Time of day includes Day time, Sunset and Night Time. Diamond+ players can vote for chest types, Gold+ can vote for Time of Day.​

    THE MAPS!
    We’ve added 3 new maps with some having custom and cool world events. Maps are the same for both Solo and Team!

    Fantasy
    [​IMG]
    Be a 'sin' not to play. 32 players per game. 4 player teams.

    Jurassic
    [​IMG]
    'Dino-mite' new map! 2 player teams. The world event for this map is a Meteor Shower. Huge fiery balls come down from the sky and devastate the terrain. The sky will flicker signalling a meteor may hit your position, so make sure you take cover!

    Underwater
    [​IMG]
    Are you 'tide' of these puns yet. 28 players per game. 4 players per teams.​

    We've removed 7 of the old maps (Village, 4Castles, Fairytale, Desert, Candy, Pirates, Steampunk) as they don't meet our current standard of maps. However, some of these may be revamped and added in the future with their own world events. The other current maps are 'Ruins' and 'Seasons'. Ruins has a zombie apocalypse world event. A zombie invasion will occur, spawning hordes of zombies wearing different types of gear. Try to fight them to reward yourself with their gear or run to survive.

    Changes to current maps include:
    Ruins
    - Added cliffs around the whole map.
    - Added various biomes.
    - Added more pathways to get back to middle.
    - Reduced the amount of grass/ferns.
    - Extended playable area and added barrier blocks.
    - Added more parkour routes to chests

    Seasons
    - Added barrier blocks around the border
    - Fixed secret underwater tunnel, no longer goes to void

    Other cool things to mention:
    - No Deathmatch Arena. We’ve used borders that automatically become smaller after a certain amount of time to form an enclosure.
    - Footprints. When walking over grass you now have footprints that follow you. Be careful, your enemies can see these and trace your every step.
    - Death. Bodies do not despawn. They simply fall to the ground and drop dead. This allows you to see where people died and may help locate the killer.
    - Dynamic chest system. Chests do not now spawn in the same location every time. There’s over 100+ spawn locations per map.
    - Lots of food. Chests now have lots more food, we know it’s vital.
    - Items in chests. Items now spawn in chests, such as iron, diamond and sticks, so you can now craft items at the crafting tables located around the maps!

    Massive shout out to @Foodyling, this was his project. Go show him some love!

    Summer is only just beginning!
    - Joe <3
