    This week we're happy to be bringing out a long-requested feature! This addition will open doors for even more content possibilities in the future, and we're only just scratching the surface right now.

    [​IMG]
    NEW ISLAND FEATURE: Public Islands [Beta]
    Public Islands have finally been added to Skybounds! When an island is set to public, it will appear in our new Island Browser (/is browse), and be accessible to all players (up to the online player limit.). This new setting can be changed using /is privacy.

    To start with, all users who have Ultra or higher will be able to change their island privacy. We're testing the waters with this, and if it goes well, the perk will be unlockable by free players upon reaching a certain player level.

    Players who visit your island when in public mode without being a member will have the following restrictions:
    • CANNOT break blocks
    • CANNOT build
    • CANNOT open doors, gates, trapdoors, or use redstone switches (pressure plates, levers, and buttons)
    • CANNOT open chests, furnaces, dispensers, or other containers (regardless of lock)
    • CANNOT use item frames, armor stands, or break paintings
    • CANNOT attack animals or monsters, or be targeted by them
    • CANNOT pickup items, except for those thrown by players (You can make trades with players, but can't steal drops from mob grinders, for example)
    With this change, water and lava will also no longer flow into island spawn points. Water, Lava, and Fire placement is also restricted near visitors.

    Players who are banned from your island (/is ban) or ignored by you (/ignore) will never be able to visit your island, regardless of privacy setting.

    Other island buffs will affect visitors as they do members. (e.g. Orb of Flight). We plan to allow you to customize the permissions of visitors in the future.

    We have lots of plans to evolve this new feature with more and more features and addons as we go.

    [​IMG]
    NEW PREMIUM ITEM: Orb of Dimensions
    This new orb is our first item that allows different Skybounds servers to communicate with each other. The Orb of Dimensions allows you to carry a single chest of items with you to another world.

    Simply right click this orb onto the desired chest, and your items will be sent off to wait for you in limbo. When you've joined the other desired server, simply visit your island and type /claimOrbItems, and your items will be sent to your island dropzone. It's magic!

    [​IMG]

    This new dimension orb can be bought from our shop: Savage Games | Welcome and used once per single chest (27 items). Perfect for getting you a head start on moving to different Skybounds servers.

    [​IMG]
    NEW SCHEMATICS: Even More to Collect!
    More Paper Schematics have been added to various loot chests and runes on all servers. These new schematics will help you make your island even more unique, without any effort! It's a pretty good trade, really.

    [​IMG]

    These new schematics will complement our existing library, and were made by the fancy Team Vaeron!

    [​IMG]
    NEW BRANDING: We're 110% more fancy.

    Ore new logo and emblem have probably been noticed by all of you a couple days before this update... we couldn't wait to put it live. :D We've dropped the old blue fire and gold text in favor of a more clean and bold design. We think it fits us super well!

    You can see it here on our site, as well as on our twitter @SavageGames (which you should totally follow, by the way.)

    OH YEAH: GoodBye Sale for iKits!
    The following kits will be departing from our shop on Monday:
    • Executioner
    • Necromancer
    • LumberjackFairy
    • Vampire
    In honor of them, a sale is being run on them... so get them while you can! Who knows then they will be back? Savage Games | Welcome


    Other Noteable Changes
    • Core Server Tweaks: Skybounds now runs on a custom build of our server software. This new build will bring huge performance enhancements to general server operations. This update will be most noteable to servers starting up following a reboot, as well as general performance over longer periods of uptime.
    • Unignore works 100% of the time! A bug affecting some users caused them to be unable to unignore players.. this is now fixed! If you're feeling extra apologetic, there's now an /ignore clear command as well.
    • A new way to view islands has been added! Use /island browse to view all public islands on your current Skybounds server. Click any of them to teleport instantly!
    • Teleport to online player islands directly. You can now use /island go <Player> to teleport right to a player's island (assuming their online) without messing with GUIs! (Assuming you also have permission to do so.)
    • Kicking and banning on islands now works for non-members. Obviously. How else would you get rid of annoying visitors that won't leave?
    • Auction House Bid cooldowns. When bidding on auctions, there is now a 1.5s global cooldown between bids on one items. This should prevent desync issues that could cause someone to lose their bid money on rare occasions.
    • OreSeed placement reliability. Ore Seeds will no longer vanish if placed on the side of redstone blocks. They were just too picky, you know?
    • Bugfixes & Optimizations. That's a lot of syllables.

    Love being able to add players and not have to worry about them destroying everything and the orb of dimensions... Just so cool! Now I can transfer from the first islands to the ice islands more officially

    This will be managed for new servers. Items like spawners won't be usable right away for the first week or so on a brand new world.

    We withheld this update because we want to wait and release it as a more polished feature. We had a lot more last minute ideas. :)

    Not like I can play but, what if they transport chests full of emerald/diamonds so they could sell it on the new servers. Will there be a way to prevent this @Turqmelon ? Also if you could start a conversation with me, I was hoping we could talk.

    New servers will not be transferrable to for a short period of time to prevent over-inflation of the economy.
