New SkyWars map and refined classes! Doskii - 2017-10-30

The new SkyWars map is now live on the server! It's called SkyIsland and it is a 4 player map with a bunch of islands to get to. You spawn on one of the four small islands and you'll have to quickly get your way to one of the other islands before the enemies do. Besides the island where you spawn on there are resource islands with everything from coal to diamonds, then there is the middle or central islands that are connected with bridges where there are chests, resources and real estate. This place is great if you get there fast. Here you'll be able to shoot almost everybody on the map due to it being right in the middle and stretched across the width of the map. There are also two sets of tower islands consisting almost only of stone which is a great place to setup your defenses and bring the fight to you.

We also made a few minor tweaks to the classes as they were pretty unbalanced before. Now there are three classes to choose from. The first one is the default one which gives you a simple starter bow, wooden sword and pickaxe. The second one is focused on archery and gives you a stronger bow and more arrows but won't give you a sword. Then there is the still debated extra life class which gives you one extra life in exchange for all starter gear. You'll start with nothing. This class also costs 838kr ($100) (in-game currency) to activate at the moment of posting this.

We are still testing and changing this minigame a bit and we hope you all enjoy the new content and changes we have added. But nothing is perfect so please do give us your feedback on the topic through Discord or any of our other contact methods :)

The introduction of Skywars and a few bug fixes Doskii - 2017-10-22

This is just a short update to tell you that we have now added the minigame Skywars! This minigame has been requested to be included for a long time now and we have now finally come around to adding it!

For the few who don’t know, Skywars is a PVP game mode were each player spawns on their own island which are all circled around a big center island. Every player has to get resources, mine, craft and build to survive and eliminate the other players. You can sit tight and hide or build your way to the center island, or other player’s islands and take the victory with pure strength. How you play it up to you. It is kind of like Survival Games except everybody is closer to each other and you have to build and mine to survive.

Interested? Head to the hub /hub and go to the Skywars lobby on the first floor. We currently have one map but more are on their way, probably.

In other news we have rebuild the entire permissions system to fix a bunch of problems that were appearing recently. One of them being the Discord chat. The Discord chat is now finally reconnected and you can now once again talk to people on the server through Discord on Discord our server, on the text-channel #minecraftchat. If you haven’t already, you can join our Discord using this link: discord.me/asp . One of the other things we have fixed is Spleef. Spleef should once again work a little better and not trap people in the arena, whoops. Hopefully it won’t break again ;)

The “World of Color Update” update is here! Doskii - 2017-06-14

Finally, the long awaited 1.12 update is here! While not a massive one, it does add a few neat changes including a new crafting system, hints for beginners, glazed terracotta, concrete, colored beds, illusioners, and parrots.

This update took, as usual, some work to get functioning properly. Almost half the server broke again which is just great. After many hours it now finally works pretty decent. It will require some more work to get everything top notch again but as always, it always works out sooner or later. If you find any bugs please do notify us via the contact us form or our Discord server. Also, for now, the PVPSurvival server is down but will be up again pretty soon.

Anyways, go log in and play with the pretty colors! Or, well, you know, the same colors but in different forms. The glazed terracotta is pretty neat though. And the parrots.

HD maps are back! Doskii - 2017-06-14

If you have visited the map on this site recently then you have probably noticed that some of the maps were partially if not completely black. This is because we have been regenerating the maps in a much higher quality! This means that you will be able to zoom in much more and be able to see every individual block with proper clarity.

The reason it was gone to begin with is because of the fact that these HD maps eat up hard drive storage like crazy and we just couldn’t afford to have them on, especially since the worlds were expending so drastically. It just wasn’t a priority. But now we have more storage to throw at the maps so that we can begin using the higher quality maps again! Yeah!

How you will use this is up to you. Use it to look at your home as you would with Google Maps, spy on your friends or look for good building locations. Regardless of what purpose you use it for, one thing stays the same, it’s pretty neat.

Merry Christmas, happy new year and 1.11.2 Doskii - 2016-12-27

Let’s keep this short. We (emilp2009, cckjellis and me) want to wish you all happy holidays and thank you all for joining the server and making this community the way it is this year. We wish you all a happy 2017 and hope most of you will stay with us for another year :D .

In other news, we have recently updated the server to 1.11.2 (and 1.11 quite some time ago that we never mentioned here). This was for once a painless update that didn’t kill anything. Yippie!

Anyways, hope you enjoy and have a great 2017!
