    Turq remember to adjust this line of text to be a really witty slogan somehow relating to this update. -Future Turq

    Once again, we're expanding our network! The Ancient Islands join the galaxy of Skybounds worlds today bringing 300 more player slots with it. Have a look at it, it's pretty neat!

    Premium Island Template

    This new world can be accessed by clicking the newly created hot bar icon next to The Nice Islands. Enjoy!



    ORB OF DIMENSIONS NOTICE: The Orb of Dimensions will not be available in this world until Monday, February 27th. You can send items from this world, but not retrieve them here until then.

    [​IMG]
    We're happy to announce a long-wanted feature as well... player/bank vaults! Vaults act like ender chests, and allow you to access items from any Bank Chest around the server, or by using the /vault command* (Savage+).

    Getting a Bank Vault

    To get your own bank vault, speak to the Banker NPC in the Skybounds market. You'll need to be Player Level 15 to do this!

    [​IMG]

    Once you speak with him, you'll be asked to begin the Bank Vault Challenge. Similar to the enchanting challenge, you'll need to complete his set of requests before you unlock your new vault. Upon completion, you'll unlock access to all vault chests on the server, forever!

    As mentioned earlier, you can access vaults by using the /vault command* (Savage+), or by using vault chests in the spawn, market, and outposts across all worlds!

    [​IMG]

    When you click the chest, the vault interface will open, presenting you 9 slots for items:

    [​IMG]

    Getting a Bank Vault
    The 9 free slots will definitely start to feel cramped after any real use. However, don't despair, your vault can be upgraded endlessly! Mouseover the emerald on the far right of the vault interface to view the upgrade requirements:

    [​IMG]

    Every vault upgrade adds 1 row (7 slots) to the storage space in your inventory. The upgrade cost and level requirement also rise with each increase.

    Your vault is endlessly expandable to the point where the interface will scroll at high enough levels.

    [​IMG]

    Navigating the interface is quick and easy as well. Left Click the arrows to scroll by 1 slot, Right Click to jump 5 rows at a time, or Shift-Click to jump straight to the top or bottom of your vault.

    Personal Bank Vaults
    Players without the /vault command* can still access their vaults from their own islands! Beneath the upgrade emerald, select the Personal Vault icon to purchase a personal Ender Chest. Every player can buy 1 personal vault every 5 days. Just place it down anywhere on your own island, then you can access your vault just as you can in the market, spawn, or outposts.

    [​IMG]

    We hope the addition of player vaults improve the experience when dealing with both the market and warzones, and puts the worry of full inventories at bay!

    *The /vault command can only be used in PVP-free locations. You cannot use the command to store items away while in combat situations.

    Another new addition to the server! This one is for players who have premium islands and love building creative structures, and we think it'll add a new island theme to the server.

    [​IMG]

    Parkour Pads allow you to create automatic parkour courses on your islands, complete with high scores, timers, and checkpoints. To obtain Parkour Pads, they just need to be crafted! All players can use parkour pads on other islands, even non-premium players, and visitors.

    The recipes for the three parkour pads:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    • Start Pads begin the course when stood on. The timer will reset if the player "dies" and is sent back.
    • Checkpoint Pads respawn the player to them should they "die". They are not required to complete the course, and up to 20 can be added.
    • End Pads end the course when stood on. The player will be told their final time, and if they beat the latest record, it'll be announced to the rest of the island.
    Parkour Pads must be placed on OBSIDIAN, and when done correctly, will have holograms to dictate the type. Should you ever wish to change the course, or reset the time to beat - just break/place any of the parkour pads while nobody is on the course.

    [​IMG]

    When a player begins a course, they will be placed in Parkour Mode. When in parkour mode, the following changes are made:
    • Blocks cannot be placed or broken, even if you're the island owner
    • Access to /is spawn and /is warp is disabled.
    • Items can't be interacted with, except for pressure plates.
    • You cannot take damage.
    • You cannot throw ender pearls, shoot bows, or cast spells.
    Players will "die" if they touch water, lava, or hit the void. On "death" you will be sent back to your previous checkpoint, or the start of the course if you hadn't hit one.

    Your sidebar will also update to display your reached checkpoints, time elapsed, and record time while in Parkour Mode, as well.

    [​IMG]

    Parkour mode can be quit by typing /parkour leave, returning to /spawn, changing islands, or leaving the server.

    Due to the hype behind recent immortal kits that include crates, boxes, and more things to open... we're happy to announce a new standard kit that has joined our library! Say hello to the "Collector"!

    [​IMG]

    The Collector kit comes with plenty of items to open and can be purchased for a one-time amount from our shop (no failure chances!). To view details of what it contains, check out our shop: Savage Games | Welcome

    LIMITED TIME: Save 20% off all purchases of the new Collector kit!

    • Challenge Backend Changes. Improves support for future side-questy stuff like the Vault and Enchanting challenges.
    • Mystic Timber. A new ancient rune that can be found from chopping logs. Contains new things!

    I really like the new update! The only thing I would like is a version of collector that isn't as good, but is 20 to 30 dollars. I think that would be good for players that don't want to spend too much money. It would be sort of like how there are 4 tiers of pvp kits. Thanks for the awesome update!

    do you read minds? I just made a small parkour course a few days ago and had to make manual water fall checkpoints - now i can get rid of those eye sores. It is amazing how you guys are on top of all things. I really appreciate your efforts, this is awesome. I will have to figure out how to implement water or lava for them to die on at missed jumps though. that might get a little tricky since they need to die not just fall off. I have no void on my island, (when it's finished) for them to die in.
