    We felt bad about not having any Skybounds content last week, so we wanted to make up for it with a BANG and release not only new features... but a brand new world as well!​


    NEW WORLD: THE ROBOT ISLANDS
    We're happy to introduce our first new world since the Ice islands... The Robot Islands! Robots brings 325 more player slots to the Savage Games network, as well as a brand new warzone. This warzone is complete with plenty of ores to find, loot chests, outposts, and the usual many islands to explore!

    Robots can be accessed by clicking the newly created icon next to Ice in your hot bar from our hub.

    This is the first new world since the addition of the Orb of Dimensions. Because of this, I feel it's important to highlight that the Orb of Dimensions does not work right away on new worlds.
    New Skybounds worlds have a 10 day grace period from creation before items can be transferred in from other worlds. This gives new players in the world a chance to get settled before gear from other realms starts coming in.

    The Orb of Dimensions will start working on The Robot Islands on February 7th.

    NEW MECHANIC: THE BLACKSMITH
    The Blacksmith is a brand new NPC and mechanic being introduced to all Skybounds worlds. Previously, we gave you guys a method to get rid of useless enchantment books... now, we're doing it for armor and gear!

    The Blacksmith will Salvage weapons, tools, and armor into their raw resources for a small star fee. Up to 16 items can be salvaged at once, making the process quick and painless.

    When salvaging items, you have a chance to receive the following:
    • Wood Items have a chance at returning sticks
    • Leather Items have a chance at returning leather
    • Stone Items have a chance at returning cobblestone
    • Iron Items have a chance at returning iron ingots
    • Gold Items have a chance at returning gold ingots
    • Chainmail Items have a chance at returning iron bars
    • Diamond Items have a chance at returning diamonds
    However, it goes beyond just resources:
    • Items that have XP and levels have a chance to return a Bottle of Item XP good for a small bit of the XP on the item
    • Items that have been enchanted have a small chance to return enchantments on the item in the form of an enchantment book.

    The Blacksmith can be found in all markets or accessed with the /blacksmith command.

    [​IMG]
    NEW ENCHANTMENT: SELF DESTRUCT
    Self Destruct
    joins the arsenal of our custom enchants as a new Armor enchantment. Self Destruct will prevent some items from dropping when you die. The amount of items to destroy will increase with every level of the enchantment, up to Level 5.

    When Self Destruct triggers, an explosion effect with fireworks will detonate to make it obvious to the player who killed you what happened. Make sure not to wear this gear on your own island, though - if you die through the fault of your own, the effect will still trigger!

    [​IMG]


    NEW IMMORTAL KIT: ROBOT
    Robot joins the ranks as our brand new immortal kit! Robot will be the first kit to feature the new Self Destruct enchantment. You can grab it from our shop for any world that you play on: Savage Games | Welcome

    To celebrate the new immortal kit as well, we're doing a 20% OFF SALE for ALL immortal kits! Make sure to grab one while the sale is running!

    Party Animal will also be parting ways NEXT FRIDAY! So if you missed out, make sure to grab it while you can as well!

    NEW FEATURE: MULTIPLE LANGUAGES

    Due to the addition of our brand new German community, we've added multiple languages to our Global chat!

    The first setting controls your Primary Language. This setting determines what global chat you talk into by default. For everyone, this starts as English. If your primary language is NOT English, you can adjust this accordingly.

    The second setting controls your Secondary Languages. You can select multiple of these, and they simply indicate to other players that you speak the selected languages. You can mouse over a player's name in chat to see what languages they speak.

    [​IMG]

    When you speak secondary languages, you'll see the Global channels for that language appear for you. You can also speak into those channels by doing /language <message>. (ie, /Spanish, /es...)

    [​IMG]
    In order to Private Message a user, you must both have a language in common.

    We hope this improves and cleans up the chat for our multi-lingual players and our English community.

    [​IMG]
    NEW VENDOR: TOKEN TRADER
    The Token Trader allows you to spend tokens from other Savage Games servers on Skybounds items. These tokens can be earned by doing well in games (kills, wins, participation, etc.). Currently, only Money Wars gives tokens, so that will be the primary source of revenue for buying items from this vendor for the time being.

    [​IMG]
    The Token Trader can be found by the entrance of all markets in all Skybounds servers!

    Other Notable Changes
    • We've revamped the error system for some of our GUIs. While this may seem small, it will greatly improve the experience for many users. Instead of us sending you a chat message when you're obviously doing something else, we'll replace the icon you clicked with a barrier block that has the message on it.
    • New island type schematics for the Robot Islands.
    • Changes to the /claimOrbItems command to allow us to blacklist its usage on new worlds.
    • Iron Golem spawners are watched a bit more closely and nerfed slightly. Spawn rates for some islands may be affected.
    • Fix that considered trap doors to be "safe", meaning falling into the void would teleport you back onto them... then cause you to fall again. Forever.
    • Globalized report system. Reporting a player on one server will notify all mods everywhere else. Hooray for efficiency!
    • Fix that made disenchanting cost a lot less than it should have.
    • 8 New Campaign Challenges! And 5 new dailies. We've also bumped the maximum level cap to 35.
    • Anti-multi bid for auctions. Losing money on the auction house no more!
    • Bugfixes and Optimizations. Before the robots take over and do it themselves.

    but you wouldnt fall into the void forever. Just a long time since eventually you would get kicked from your island. Plus you could always do many things to counter that. Like flip the door whilst falling or typing ./is home whilst falling. People who thought that they couldnt get out of that loop without disconnecting can't think.

    This is the best update ever! So much better than last week, and also tokens make better use of money wars to skybounds fans. Thank you so much Savage Games team for working so hard this week, it really pays off! :)

    "Iron Golem spawners are watched a bit more closely" What does that mean?
    Also I think the blacksmith needs a buff because at the moment it seems better to just keep the armour in storage for when i need it.

    Thanks for the awesome update turq and the other devs. Hopefully next week we will see some changes for moneywars with things such as /report and the invisibility bug being fixed. :D
