    Yup, you read that right, this game is coming back and this is only the first stage! Currently, you need to buy an alpha pass to join however in the future this will change. The new game will feel sort of like a home away from home, it's still JediCraft but you've been thrown into a whole new world and era. Now keep in mind this is just alpha and the full release is going to have way more features. We've also made a lot of changes to basic gameplay, just incase you get lost you can get help here.

    RESOURCE PACK
    We have been looking forwards to this just as much as you, and nothing makes you feel like a Jedi (or Sith) more than having a 3d lightsaber in your hand. Our modelers have been hard at work creating amazing 3d textures and sounds so you all feel immersed in the new Jedi craft. Make sure you have resource packs set to enabled for Mineswine or because this won't be the only game with a resource pack in the future.

    SPAWN
    There is no spawn. This may seem odd but trust me with the way we've set up the game you'll feel at home even without a spawn. Plus, we want you to be fully immersed in the amazing new map so that you guys can discover every nook and cranny there is.

    MAP
    Yes, this is most definitely Starkiller base. You can find most of the chests near and in the four main areas as seen below:
    [​IMG]
    The new map is amazingly built and is made of over 230 MILLION blocks! So you'll have plenty of space to explore and remember.

    CHESTS
    We've re-done the chest system entirely, there are still tier1 & tier2 chests (tier2 are 'red' chests), however, the tier one chests change location every refill so you can't spawn camp them. The tier two chests have static locations so you can find them, remember where they are, and only share the locations with the people you trust. There are currently about 10 tier two chests placed in the map.

    ECONOMY
    The economy is similar but different. The main way to make money now is by A Killing someone who has money or B Selling items in the shop since there is no spawn we had to create a shop in the form of a GUI, you can access the GUI by typing /shop. Then you can buy (left-click) and sell (right-click) weapons as you wish and grow your economy to buy even better weapons.

    ALLEGIANCE
    We really wanted to bring this feature back to Jedicraft but with more features and reason to choose each side. When you first join you will be asked to choose between the Resistance and the First Order, do you seek knowledge or power? The sides are completely balanced and there is no loss to choosing one side over the other besides which side you want to represent. If you want to change your allegiance you can do so by typing /resetstats. However, this will also reset your, kills, money, and inventory.

    ALPHA
    Remember, this is NOT the full release of Jedicraft, there will be plenty of bugs to find and report here. It is also far from complete and you will notice a few things missing but they have not gone forgotten. The sad news is when we full release we will have to reset all of the alpha testers data that you gain during the alpha. There is, however, one exception to this, if you buy items from the store during the alpha you WILL keep those items when the game fully release.

    UPDATES
    Heres a list of updates we've made during the alpha:

    • Reduced death money loss to 1-5% of balance.
    • Increased chest spawnrate from 75% to 80% (Still adding more locations soon)
    • Added a /statsreset command.
    • Decreased chest refill rate to every 5 minutes.
    • Removed allegiance damage.
    • Fixed killfeed bug.
    • Fixed visibility bug.
    • Removed ability to drop EADC-16, Pulse Cannon, and Lightsabers.
    • Changed hunger and regeneration to 1.8 style.
    • Added spawn podiums with PVP disabled.
    • Added then removed the 30 second spawn protection.
    13/1/13:
    • Fixed chest glitch.
    • Major performance fixes.
    • Preperations for future additions.

    Weapons update (Needed its own fancy title):
    • Nerfed melee weapons.
    • Buffed scopes on targeting rifles.
    • Required MPL-57 missile launcher to scope in before shooting.
    • Required MPL-57 Grenade Launcher to crouch before shooting.
    • Added headshots to targeting rifles. (There's a sound whenever you hit a headshot)
    • Fixed DLT Innacuracy bug.
    • Fixed ion scrolling (you can only hold one targeting rifle and one launcher in hotbar)

    May the force be with you all ;)

    That still isn't the answer to the direct question "was there a reason fir having to buy alpha pass".

    Why is it pay to play members who have been here through all the updates and hardships of jedicraft and just want to finally enjoy it would have to pay for it and not to mention the timing don't you think you could wait till after the holidays before locking people out?

    I think making it pay to play is kinda a terrible pr move.

    Some true fans of jedicraft (not me) have waited for jedicrafts return for a very long time. Not to even mention the "reset".
    Now that it finally came back, everybody should be able to play it.

    We have to be careful not to crash or break anything, so at the moment we are testing the limits, then after that it will be passes only while we fix everything else, then eventually it will be completed with more features and will open up to everyone again.
