It's been a while since I've posted on here, and I felt like giving everyone an update on what's been happening. I've not got much free time at the moment, nor will I over the next year due to a lot of revision for exams, so I'm currently trying to work out the best way to update the most things without using too much time.
The first update: We're trialling in game adverts. I understand these can be annoying in certain ways, however I believe that our method may be fairly nice. To start with, we have introduced billboard style adverts at the server spawn - that's on the hub server, and on creative. These ads will only work for US residents, however anyone else just sees a server image. If you are in the US, I'd appreciate it if you view an advert by going to spawn - it can make a difference to our funding.
As well as billboard adverts, we also have video adverts. These are available in most countries. Every 20 minutes or so, a message will be displayed in chat to remind players this feature is available. You are then able to run the command /ad . This will give you a link, in which you watch a video advert online. If you watch it, you will be awarded a reward. At the moment, this is vote tokens - there are different probablilities of different awards, so you can currently get between 1 and 10 for watching an advert. However, in future when other gamemodes are released, there may be small probabilities of getting other rewards, such as a sword in survival. The current cooldown between watching ads is every 10 minutes, so watch as many as you like! Note: if no advert is available, you won't get a reward. Sorry.
Advertising aside, the main thing I'm working on at the moment is survival. If you haven't already, please complete our survey at https://surveynuts.com/surveys/take?id=101568&c=726008081NDHL - what certain things are based on is entirely dependant on what the majority of players want, so you still have a change to try and get things to be exactly how you want them.
