Update #1A - Lucky Blocks, Disenchanting, and More!



Hey Everyone!

After a successful beta opening, we've seen over 280+ unique players join to be part of the experience here at Aluminis and we can't describe the love and enjoyment you give to the server. It's amazing! By bringing your friends on, leaving suggestions, and creating bug reports, you shape the server for the greater good. We want to say thank you for that. Without you, we wouldn't be able to improve and come up with these great ideas which enhances the experience for you. Here are the new additions, bug fixes, and improvements:

Lucky Blocks


Have you ever been bored by mining aimlessly for hours on end? Lucky blocks, which spawn at a 0.04% chance for every block you mine, have a chance of giving you amplifying your gameplay by awarding you with a percentage of your current prison rank. This means lucky blocks have the same value, no matter your prison rank! Coming soon, you will have a chance to multiply the amount of experience you get from the lucky block, by completing an abundance of challenges.



Have a pickaxe that you don't use? Or maybe you accidentally used your last Pickaxe Upgrade Point on an enchant you didn't want. This feature will solve all your problems! At $3,000,000 Per Pickaxe Upgrade, you can remove enchantments and turn them back into Pickaxe Upgrades! This is accessible by opening the Pickaxe Upgrade Menu then click on the Anvil!

Mobs & Mob Spawners


Mobs are a fundamental aspect of Minecraft, Previously they were disabled on Aluminis. Now, they have been enabled for player realms! Mobs spawn as normal, but you can also purchase a mob spawner from the Rare Item Shop (/rshop). The spawner type can be changed by buying a Mob Spawn Egg from the Rare Item Shop, then right-clicking on the spawner while holding the egg. Eggs can also be obtained at a 0.029% chance per mob killed. Thinking of trying to obtain a rare mob drop from killing mobs? In order to keep the rarity of these items, mobs drop their normal items at a 0.2% chance per mob killed. Placed Mob Spawners can be mined with a Silk Touch Pickaxe.



Voting now has a new meaning! In addition to the previous rewards for voting, you now receive a Vote Engram which, when decrypted, can give major rewards. Engrams can be decrypted at /warp decrypt. Also, every 100 votes, a MineParty will begin at /warp A replacing all blocks temporarily with very valuable blocks!

Admin Activated Experience Boosters


With these boosters, all players gain a multiplier in experience gained! You can view currently activated boosters by the action bar experience message, which now contains boosters that are active on the server!

Item Tooltips in Chat


Available to LEGEND rank and above, items can now be displayed in chat by typing while holding an item to display it in chat!

PvP Envoys

Dropped from an unknown realm, Envoys spawn every 2 hours at /warp PvP. They consist of great rewards that are worth fighting over! At least 8 players must be online for the envoy to start!
