    The Skybounds Network expands once again... this time we bring you the Cartoon World!

    [​IMG]

    Cartoon comes with a brand new warzone to explore, outposts, chests, and much much more! You'll also see some new schematics on both the premium and basic islands.

    [​IMG]

    Access our new world by clicking on the brand new icon in your hot bar in the hub, between Money Wars and Ancient Islands.

    [​IMG]
    A core feature that's been with us since the beginning has finally received some love. We thought it was more than time for a redesign of our Challenges Menu. It's very easy to use still, here are a few screenshots:

    [​IMG]

    • The XP bottle, like before, still shows your current XP, level, and the XP remaining to level up.
    • If you're level 50, the icon to allow you to prestige will appear, represented by a diamond block.
    • The minecart at the top right will bring you to your Skybounds Rewards, as before.
    • Your campaign challenge is now front and center, with the glass in the middle acting as a progress meter to your reward on the right.
    • If you're on a "Special Quest", (vault, enchanting, etc.), your progress and goal for completing it will be represented under your campaign. (Yes, you can now keep doing your campaigns while on a special quest now!)
    • Your Daily Challenges have been moved to the book at the bottom! Click the book to view them.
    • The Bookcase will still be your challenge selector.
    • The Bonus XP Menu has been moved to the nether star.
    • But wait... what's the golden apple for...?
    [​IMG]

    Daily challenges are shown the same way as your campaigns now, with your current progress being front and center. The clay color designates the difficulty of each challenge. Like before, you can click on it to see more detail about the challenge, and right click a challenge to re-roll it.

    No functional changes have been lost with this transition, we simply wanted to move to an interface that we felt would be much clearer and easier to navigate for new players, while better organizing our current and future content.

    [​IMG]
    A new type of challenge has been added, one that you play with the entire server... Competitions!

    [​IMG]

    Competitions are global events that start every few hours. While they're on, your goal is to get the highest score by performing the listed objective. The Top 10 players in each competition by when they close will be rewarded with Challenge XP and items!

    [​IMG]

    Click on the Golden Apple in your challenges menu to view available competitions. Some may be starting soon while others will be in progress. At any time you can view the leaderboard by clicking the head at the far right, or view your pending rewards from the chest.

    [​IMG]

    If you win a competition, you'll be given the rewards next time you log in. Top 3 players will receive a trophy in the form of a spinner that gives a MASSIVE XP bonus and an extra item as a bonus.

    [​IMG]
    Eternal Shards are brand new rewards for our most loyal players...

    [​IMG]

    Eternal Shards are granted to players when they PRESTIGE on any skybounds world. They are soulbound and can only be used by you. You will unlock a kit OR iKit that you do not already own forever upon use. It's our way of thanking our dedicated players who manage to get up to Level 50 and choose to start their quest over again.

    Players that are already Prestiged...
    You will be given an Eternal Shard within 10 minutes or so of you joining your world that you have reached Prestige on.

    [​IMG]
    • Complete database re-work part 1. We've changed how challenges are stored internally. This will improve performance and stability. You won't lose anything with this change, and it's really only a really lovely thing for us.
    • Limited Time Warzone Loot. Some loot has been added to the war zone as LIMITED TIME ITEMS. A broadcast will be sent out to the server when one of these items are stocked into a chest.
    • New Bonus XP Types. We've narrowed down what you can earn XP in even further, to better encourage earning XP in new and fun ways.
    • Full Dropzone Warning. If your dropzone chest tower is nearing island capacity, we will now warn you every time you visit your island. Get your collection under control to remove these warnings.
    • Experienced Bunnies. Talking to bunnies for the easter event will now warrant XP.
    • Surprise Egg Bunny Item. Buyable for 40 eggs, this drop will give you a random item! ...could be good or bad.
    • XP tracking weirdness. Fixed a long-standing bug that could cause XP-related tracking and leveling to incorrectly count.
    • Bugfixes and optimizations. Only the finest.

    I really like the eternal shard! I don't like spending money on ikit shards, with only a chance of getting the kit, but it gives me a better reason to keep power leveling! I am setting my goal for lvl 50!

    Too many shards were developed top quickly, is nice to see a slight break of new ones to catch up with unlocking them.

    Nice update by the way.
