Fantasia now has a skill leveling system! Guests and up can level up many different skills doing various things that will unlock some pretty sweet abilities and perks. To learn more about this system click here, for future reference this page can be found under the Help & Information menu. Even if you're familiar with this type of system I suggest you check out the page to learn about any Fantasia specific changes. Also I must say that this system was only tested on a very small scale so everything may not be perfect and balanced yet. I will be monitoring things heavily for quite awhile to tweak things that are found to be easily exploitable or too overpowered. Extra Bladen credit to those that are honest and report such things ;). I hope all of you enjoy this much requested addition.
Artifex has moved from the Fantasia server to it's own. The reason for this move was to keep Artifex available when other servers are down for whatever reason and to enable limited WorldEdit commands for everyone on Artifex. WorldEdit will only work on your own plot or plot you have permission to and it will not destroy the paths and other plots. To help prevent lag and possible crashes every large WorldEdit job will automatically be queued up and applied in batches. Please be patient with this process at least you're not doing it by hand anymore right? For a list of the available WorldEdit commands go here and look under the VIP Perks tab and under the PlotMe section. I hope you guys enjoy this.
VIP shops are back and easier to use and best of all they now support items with enchants and lore and also are virtually command-less! To learn how to use this new shop system please take a look at the Player Shop Tutorial and please reread the rules because some of it was changed. If this system works out well I plan on expanding the system some. The free player stalls were not included in this shop system switch and may return at a later date.
Now for the new nether world! I decided to do something very different with the nether this time around. I completely wiped the old nether and generated a brand new much better one. Instead of having a single spawn area I enabled nether portal creation from New Fantasia only. Now you can have your very own portal to the nether! Though since the nether now uses vanilla world scaling multiple portals may link to the same nether portal but no matter what portal you use to leave the nether you will also return to the one you used on Fantasia. Also portal creation on the nether has been disabled so that random portals don't pop up on Fantasia ruining other builds. That's not all! I also decided to make the nether true hardcore survival. You will now find all sorts of different mobs there and A LOT of them. I recommend storing your items before and going in with a group or you probably won't last very long. I may tweak mob settings once I see how things work with multiple players on. Finally for those of you that may have forgotten, the nether is open to Guest+ and mob kills are still worth x2 the amount they are worth on Fantasia and yes this multiplier stacks on the VIP multipliers too! Please report bugs so I can fix them right away. Hope you guys enjoy this little update!
