Greetings members of Syncro! Fabulous February has arrived so it's time for the monthly post. Our Planet Minecraft submission was the top Irish server last month so let's keep up the voting and see if we can do it again this month.
Star Wars is back and bigger than ever! For anyone that doesn't know, Star Wars was one of our biggest custom mini games. It was removed a while ago but has once again returned to Craft. To highlight its return, we've added Kashyyyk as a brand new map. Of course that's not all! We've also completely remade the hero system to get rid of those annoying pickups and added two new hero's, General Grievous and Obi-Wan Kenobi. On top of that we added a new gun, switched combat to 1.8, added support AI, and made plenty of other small improvements. Pax is also celebrating the update by giving out Star Wars challenges again. Any suggestions and feedback is welcome as we'll likely be adding more to it in the future.
Guilds are making their way into Craft. These offer a simple way for you and your friends to form a mini group with a joint home. You can create a guild using /guild create or join one with /guild join. View details about your current guild with /guild info. We know these might be too basic at the moment but no need to shout, we've got plans to expand them and we're open to any suggestions you have.
We've been continuing to work on our custom MCMMO system. If you've not noticed already, /mctop now shows the top player levels overall. We're also started to add sub leaderboards with /mctop [skill]. Currently, this only works for mining, building, excavating, chopping, swordsmanship and archery, but we intend to add it to all skills.
Like usual, we've been busy adding and fixing minor things throughout the month. Too lazy to type /spawn? Use /pax for two less letters of work. Are you an Aquarius, Capricorn or something else? Find out with /starsigns. Use /action frown and /action cough for those daily interactions. Get the recipes for power armour from the handy button we've installed on the power armour constructor machine. Click to accept TPA requests if typing /tpyes is too much effort. Claim EXP from Pax keys since we know you've already got too much money. If you like Spider Man, try our new grapple enchantment available from the craftsman machine. As normal, you can find a more complete list with /updates.
If you have any suggests, feel free to let us know. Telling a staff member in game or using our community forums are two ways to spread your ideas. Found a bug? Report it here or use the /bug report command. Follow us on Twitter for the latest news and announcements. Until next time, drink tea, live long and play Syncro!
