Today we’ve expanded the shop to offer some unlockable items tied to your vote amounts. Those items are Concrete, Glazed Terracotta and a new illicit goods shop opened by Smelly Barry!
We’ve set the vote locks mainly around the 300 vote range to make them accessible to most players but we have some at 400, 500 and 600 vote levels too.
In the future we’ll be expanding the shop to include items unlockable at even higher vote levels to give everyone further incentive to vote.
To keep things interesting we’re not going to show what items are before you’ve unlocked them.
So while Concrete and Glazed Terracotta are obvious the ones sold by Smelly Barry won’t be until you unlock them (or get a friend to tell you!).
If you want to check out the new items and see what you’ve already unlocked head on over to our shop page now and these are also available from our in-game /search <item> command.
We spoke about implementing this last night and this morning here it is!
You can now purchase 40 Sethomes if you’ve already purchased the previous 20 Sethomes. We’re pricing 40 at R20,000 (before your discounts).
You can of course gift this to other players like all other items in the store but the person you gift it to will also need to already have the 20 Sethome ability.
This is the first of many new items we’re adding to the shop, stay tuned for more updates!
Over the past week some of you have noticed that the images of our players on our web pages (Auctions, Vote Page etc) have been the generic Steve skin.
This was we thought due to Mojang’s skin server being temporarily offline. But it actually turns out Mojang has decided to end support for their online skin server and simply didn’t tell anyone until users made a bug report about it on their bug tracking website.
This is typical behaviour of Mojang. So anyway today I coded a replacement skin resolver which utilises Mojangs texture system (the same one that sends skins to servers for use in-game). This means our skins are now showing again on all our web pages.
While writing the new skin resolver code I also gave the skins a much needed resolution boost so they look nicer on ultra high definition displays and we’re now caching the skins on our own server which means they load a lot faster than they used to.
That’s all for this update, happy crafting!
Welcome to Player Spotlight! Here we will meet new and old players from our RENMX community! First up we have the lovely TheLenore!
Lenore is very well known throughout our server. Not only is she one of our moderators, but also a very genuine person! She loves to do many things that RENMX has to offer such as, build, gamble, sell, and of course… PARKOUR.
From personal experience Lenore is very talented in the art of interior design. Many of her builds she puts a lot of effort into, and they truly are a sight to see! Lenore is also one of the nicest people you can meet on the server. She always is willing to help and puts in hours that the rest of us can barely fathom.
Read her full interview on our forums here.
Just a quick update, we have added new protected regions to the end so that players can place the end crystals necessary to spawn an enderdragon. We’ve also added regions atop the columns so you can break the end crystals that heal the dragon when it’s spawned.
Today we’ve written and deployed a new custom feature that allows you to choose the colour of your name on our server. The command is /setcolour <colour name|rank name>
The way it works is you can only choose a colour that is equal or lower than your current rank. So for example Apprentices can only be Dark Green (Member) or Green (Apprentice). But a Legendary Crafter could be any colour except Aqua (Moderator) and Dark Red (Administrator).
So if you want more colours simply rank up and acquire them. Engineers, Architects and Artists are considered the same rank level and so they can switch between those three colours as they wish as-well as Apprentice and Member colours.
You can also hide your supporter heart by adding -h to the end of the command. For example /setcolour green -h
If you want to return to your actual ranks colours simply type /setcolour reset we hope you all enjoy the new feature.
There is one last thing. This feature costs R5 + 0.1% of your currently held rennies to use. So if you have R50,000 it would cost you R55 to change. If you had R500,000 it would cost R505 to change.
There is no charge for using /setcolour reset. We want this feature to help take some money out of the economy which is why we have structured it like this.
