    Hello, everyone, JediCraft is starting to move closer and closer to the so desired full release! While this update mainly consists of optimizations, bugfixes and other backend changes we made sure to add a few front-end updates so you don't feel left out. The beta has been released in chunks over the past few days just so we can ease into things. Please keep in mind that although there may not be the coolest new things for you to use, the optimizations we've made allow us to make those cool things in future updates.

    SHOP
    We've opened up the armor section of the shop and increased some of the prices (buying and selling) for most weapons, the armor is a bit pricey and does not consist of Ren armor which can only be found in Tier II chests.

    ECONOMY
    The economy has had a few updates, the main one is that we've added a /eco command which gives you a lovely GUI. This GUI allows you to convert your JediCraft Credits into network Tokens which will be used in other games as they are added.

    SERVER STORE
    As of late, we've only had one package on the store which tons of people have bought, mainly for the special EADC-16. As you may have noticed recently is that the early access package has disappeared, so we're adding a lot of new kits to the store each one containing a special item that can't be found in chests or the store. Also, all special items cannot be dropped and will disappear on death.

    LI G H T S A B E R:

    • Lightsaber (Special Item, Type: Melee, RED for First Order BLUE for Resistance)
    • Captain Helmet
    • Ren Chestplate
    • Captain Leggings
    • Captain Boots
    • Space Wafflesx64

    M A R K S M A N
    :
    • Pulse Cannon (Special Item, Type: Targeting Rifle, 1 shots anything on headshot)
    • Ultra Power Cellsx25
    • Trooper Helmet
    • Captain Chestplate
    • Trooper leggings
    • Trooper boots
    • Space Wafflesx64
    D E M O M A N:
    • EADC-16 (Special Item, Type: Launcher)
    • MPL-57 Grenade Launcher
    • Ultra Power Cellsx30
    • Captain Helmet
    • Captain Chestplate
    • Captain Leggings
    • Captain Boots
    • Space Wafflesx64
    ALL KITS AVAILABLE HERE

    Just to add some hype, here is what the pulse cannon looks like.

    (Please ignore semi-high credit count, was filmed while testing)

    • Renamed "Money" to "Credits"
    • Added Next Refill timer to scoreboard.
    • Made chest refill time fluctuate based on playercount, over 100 players = 2.5 minutes 50-99 = 5 under 50 = 7.5
    • Added Trooper armor.
    • Added LOTS of chests. (mainly in areas where there are no buildings)
    • Buffed heavy blasters
    • Decreased heavy blasters & blaster rifles recoil.
    • Nerfed MPL-57 Grenade Launcher.
    • Buffed MPL-57 Missile Launcher.
    • Nerfed & increased reload time for DLT-19X
    • Made Tier 1 chests spawn MUCH more often.
    • Fixed /jedicraft stats command
    • Added /jedicraft help dialogue.
    • Changed reload messages.
    • Various changes to weapon lasers for MPL's, CyclerRifle, & default red.
    • Decreased blaster bolt speed for Targeting Rifles.

    • Added sounds to most Melee weapons.​
    • Changed colors for item statistics.​
    • Added custom language file support to all English languages.​
    • Added sounds to the DC-15's​
    • Added a hidden item (something with a blue drink?)​
    May the force be with you all. ;)

    When you ask for no factions, vehicles, and a better map and get expensive kits.

    I don't think it's that. As for my stand point I love this new stuff. Staff are doing a pretty good job. I just don't like the fact that they are not soulbound. Yes that would be OP, but you could just put way less stuff in the kits. I probably will buy 1-2 kits, but definitely not again as they don't stay with you. As for support I know you all need the money so I hope people also understand that they need to help out. Well that's just my stand point maybe think about my suggestion I think it would help out.

    Thanks,
    FrostedBlizzard

    Also @MylesDev and @GamerKing195 say that I'm new to the server. I play jedicraft for about 30 mins and then I go check out the shop. I see the kits and buy one of them. I come back thinking oh yea this is so cool now I can get my kits and cool weapons and gets some good gear and kills! Well say there are to enemy's out side. What are the odds your gonna kill em? Very low. So say you die you loose the stuff. How do you think that guy is gonna take all this. Well I can assure he will be mad and sad.

    This is just something to think about. I think everything is great but maybe you could make it to where if you die 5 times or something then you loose the stuff that way people can atleast have fun with it. I'm not criticizing anything that you all put hard work in or anything I just want you all to think about these things.

    Thanks,
    FrostedBlizzard

    Lack of communication between the higher up staff and community, lack of updates (small ones like bug fixes or balance fixes would be highly appreciated), Timing, Not making MineSwine MineSwine.

    Yep, it was only a matter of time before they took full advantage of the pay-to-win system, regardless if it is illegal.

    One of the worse features of JediCraft was it's overpowered pay2win system, where anyone who could afford to pay were the ones who'd basically rule the battlefield. Of all the old Jedicraft features, they chose to implement this one into MineWarsII?

    Edit: Wait a second, I just noticed that one Pay2win gun one shots anything with a headshot? What the heck? I take it back, these guys going above and beyond with the pay2win system.

    I think that seems to be the biggest problem, there's hardly any communication between players and the staff. In particular the devs. Like, if something is added that no one likes, or bothers people, they just get defensive and don't do anything to fix it.

    Mh, then the people who complain at me cause MineSwine bugs are wrong.
    Balance Updates then or just general little things that make the more enjoyable to play.
    That's one problem a community does not like, waiting without any information on whats going on. I don't say you are doing that thing wrong but it's more appreciated by the community if you spoil stuff (Does not matter if it's a little spoiler, it just shows: "HOLY *insert swearword here* I CANT BELIEVE *insert what has been shown in the spoiler* IS COMING"

    As an Ex-Admin on here I can tell you that spoilers work better than not to spoil stuff in this community.
    So is bringing out small patches that slightly affect the current gameplay f.e. balance and other little changes.

    Last thing what the Staff and Development team are lacking of is communication in between updates and changes,
    make polls for the community to see and vote for if they want it either this or that way, really improves reputation and appreciation. Makes the game feel like they've been a part of it.

    The current team of staff here has the power and abilities to set Mineswine in a good state again, unlike before where we had a 3 man development team, alot of inactive staff aswell as a crap ton of bugs.
