    Hi all!

    Happy December to all of our players! For the first week of this awesome month, we have a network update for you and some other small little things! Let's get into it!

    Friend System
    Introducing the friend system! The friend system allows you to add your friends, message them and see where they currently are on the network!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Each rank has a limited amount of friend slots (people who you can have as friends), to help our database. Below is a list of ranks and the amount of slots they receive:
    • Default/Guest: 20
    • Piglet: 30
    • Boar: 40
    • Hogwild: 50
    • VIP and above: 100
    Soon you'll be able to purchase more slots. For example if you're a guest, and didn't want to buy a rank you could buy 10 extra slots. However, that's for a future update!

    For a list of friend-based commands, type /friend in-game and you will be displayed a help menu! Get adding!

    Delivery Piggy
    Delivery Piggy is an awesome new pig that has been added to Mineswine! When you right-click him (be it in the hub, factions or creative) you'll be greeted with a GUI. Here you can claim a daily reward, monthly reward and soon like us on
    NameMC, as well as cast a vote in any on going surveys.
    [​IMG]
    Although Tokens aren't used yet, I'd suggest saving them up! We have some even bigger updates coming out this/next month that will utilise them!

    Other small changes
    Based on community feedback, each rank now has it's own colour and prefix. So now instead of a developer having an "Admin" prefix, they have a "Developer" prefix! Thank you for the community members who suggested this.

    We've also done small/large backend upgrades to allow us to bring out even more features and updates much quicker *cough* JediCraft *cough*

    Thank you!
    Thank you all for reading, and we hope you enjoy the update. As always, please report any bugs you may find in the appropriate forum, and to suggest any changes you may want!

    JediCraft is coming very soon guys, just a little longer! ;)

    shoutout to @ssamjh for being my friend for the screenshot

    Finally... I suggested that they should change Developer from Admin to their own prefix.

    This is a nice addition to the server! Now, will the Delivery Piggy be delivering any presents for Christmas? Because that would be awesome.

    Like he said, though, many people did recommend it. I for one, personally PM'd Taco over the matter.

    In my opinion, the great increase of friend slots for VIP isn't fair for people like @Fishieeee who is VIP yet wasn't a staff previously like @Jacques Stevens was.

    Qualifications would be nice, except that they would probably create some issues in the community. For now, I'll keep my baby blue...

    It may not be, but seemingly it's ex-staff and staff's significant others.

    It is youtubers, people of importance, and ex-staff.

    I think it would be nice what makes some one "of importance". Like, how can we earn VIP? Cause so far, it seems kinda shady...

    Most important people have helped out the server in a way. They're trusted and stuff as well, but now most of them are developers. Importance to the server could come many different ways, but I most definitely do not deal with VIP ranks. So I could not tell you how you can earn VIP. Most of the time earning VIP on servers isn't easy either.
