One of the biggest parts of this update is the changes to the economy. Earth had a unique economy, with no server shops and player trading only. We wanted to add a server shop & spawners, while still having the economy influenced/controlled by earth players.
However, Earth also does not have enough activity or uses for raw items to have a true supply/demand economy, so here's our approach:
Only building blocks, decorations, farming supplies & spawners can be purchased from the server shop. The buy prices for these items are static. All other items must still be self-obtained or purchased from other players.
Farming crops & mob drops can be sold to the shop. These prices are dynamic
This information is also available through our public API, and will soon be viewable on our website too!
Spawners are now split into 3 tiers. Each tier has a static buy price for every spawner, and sell prices of the mob drops only affect other items inside their tier. (Meaning iron ingot volume from Tier 3 IG spawners won't affect the price of porkchop from Tier 1 pig spawners)
Hopefully this isn't too confusing. Towny is pretty complex though, so I'm sure earth players won't have much of a problem with this.
Auctions & Player Shops
Player Shops remain, and we've also added the Auction House. Money and cubits can be used.
The Task Board is a replacement to the old solo quests system. We want to re-introduce quests with multiple steps, story & dialogue in a future update.
Tasks are randomly generated within set parameters, so you will probably never have the same exact task twice.
There are 2 types of tasks you can complete at any time: Slayer & Adventure
- Vanilla Mob Kills
- Mana Monster Kills
- Mini Boss Kills
- Boss Kills
- Catch fish
- Catch a specific fish
- Mine/harvest specific resources
- Harvest specific crops
- Mine specific blocks
More task types will be added, however with just these there are 130+ different tasks with thousands of variations.
When you complete a task, you are automatically assigned a new task right away.
Players have 24 hours to complete this task or a new one is assigned. You can also use the skip feature to skip your current tasks.
Skipping costs 0.15 Cubits
Completing tasks earns you task XP for your task level. Many tasks have minimum level requirements to be assigned. This is so that new players aren't assigned more difficult tasks such as defeating a boss. So far there is only Lvl 1 tasks, Lvl 5 tasks, and Lvl 25 tasks.
Complete tasks before they expire to build up your streak. Higher streaks reward more task XP.
Every task you complete rewards you with a crate.
This crate will be continuously updated. Version 1 contains rare items, high level vanilla enchantment books, mystery spawners, mana pouches, spawn eggs & more.
At the forge you can purchase gear, craft spawners & repair shattered items from failed enchantments.
The forge is located to the left of Spawn
The crate rewards have doubled in size, and rewards are now consistent with the latest updated ManaCube realms.
15 new packages have also been added to the Cubit Store.
