This week in Skybounds we’re bringing you the November Loot Crate, along with various other goodies. Prepare for some poultry hunting and enjoy the sunlight once again as our Halloween update winds to a close. The main piece of the November Crate is the “Feather Poof” trail. Unlike other trails the particles will not emit from you, but rather others that you are attacking. With this trail equipped you’ll be able to simultaneously maim and humiliate your enemies, by surrounding the scene of your duel with clouds of feathers. Perfect for this festive season of bird-hunting. Also new this week, we’ve handled a redesign of the XP system to make leveling a bit more intuitive. With this we’ve buffed the XP return from using the blacksmith, and Netherwart has been corrected and will now reward XP to hoes. We’ve also made significant improvements to schematics and schematic placement. When going to place a schematic, there will now be a partially transparent replica of the build in the position where it would be added, accompanied by the same border particles you’re used to seeing. This visualizer can be moved and rotated accordingly, hopefully allowing you to better position and align your island builds. Now enabled: Schematic Rotations - Schematics will orient themselves to face the way you are! Schematic Ghosts - When you find a spot you're happy with, click the item to view a ghost outline of what the schematic will look like! Click once more to build! Instant Construction - Schematics will appear right away. No more slow building! Also once again Skybounds is offering a 10% off weekend sale! If you feel like snagging a deal, now’s the time to capitalize! Click here to visit the shop. There have also been other miscellaneous changes on the server. Enderpearls have been adjusted, Bows/Arrows adjusted, Super Crops have been buffed. And there have been some small changes to rank XP caps and XP rewards of various everyday tasks.
