    Newer Update Post:
    http://oneshotmc.com/forums/threads/2017-01-28-faction-cannon-updates.627

    Release Date:
    Sometime soon in February.

    [Rant]:
    For a year and a half, we have been working with the most competitive faction players to get to know exactly how TNT works. Now, we are prepared to put all of our knowledge to the test to produce one of the only nearly flawless cannoning environments in OneShotMC factions with nearly no TNT restrictions. Additionally, these players and I have come up with many revolutionary ideas, some of which I will mention below. Note, this is hardly an in-depth post as not everything is completely finalized. I will also only be including MAJOR features. We still have many important custom additions to factions that are not included.

    Terrain:

    • Terrain averages a height of y=35
    • Desert biomes are massive and much more common. They include sandstone instead of stone with no ores.
    • There are less caves on average, but once you get into one they continue for a longer time
    • The nether is disabled
    • The End is a mix of low flatlands and high mountains. There are no islands
    • ... and of course, we can't leave out Flat bedrock! :p
    Core System:
    This is the primary addition to OneShotMC factions. Unlike most Core systems present on other faction servers, ours is much more advanced and links into the faction system more directly.

    So, what's so special?
    • Cores are placed in each group of chunks that are claimed
    • They have 10 levels.
    • Levels regulate how much land you can claim and give special features (ex: /f fly in territory, spawner levels, etc.)
      • This effectively eliminates the gained advantage of factions with hordes of alts
    • To reach a new level you use points
      • Points are gained from events, crates, money and go immediately toward your selected core
      • You can still allocate more points toward your cores after they reach the max level (level 10)
      • More points give the core more HP (how many times TNT needs to damage the core for it to be destroyed)
      • You can also gain part of the points the raided faction lost when you raid their core. (The points go to the faction who claimed land where the TNT that damaged the core spawned). This encourages raiding.
    • Once the core is destroyed (and reaches level 0) the faction has 24 hours to repair it and upgrade levels, before all land which is unsupported by the current land is unclaimed. (you cannot upgrade if there is an enemy faction within 4 blocks of your core ... this adds a PvP aspect into raiding)
      • This makes it easy to unclaim claims that people used only to annoy you
      • Unsupported claims are called Remnant Chunks. No one can build here, not even the faction that owns them.

    Other Mechanics & Additions:
    • Weekly standouts — similar to a KoTH but much bigger and with much higher rewards.
    • A better genbucket — lava buckets spawn pillars of cobblestone like a normal genbucket. However, to prevent exploiting this feature, a 10 minute delay will be implemented from placement to cobble genning.
    • Smaller spawner drop rate (and core point gain rate) when no faction players are offline to discourage offline raiding
    • Faction block permission system to deny placing/destroying/using blocks (like TNT/spawners, etc.) to certain ranks.
    • Giant Cannon Events
    • Spawn crate drops
    • and ... cannoning that works exactly the same as the cannon server!
    Map Winners:
    The winners of the map will be determined by the sum of all points allocated to a faction's cores. Prizes will go to the owner of the faction and are as follows.
    1. $1,000 USD real cash for anything (PayPal)
    2. $250 USD real cash for anything (PayPal)
    3. $100 USD real cash for anything (PayPal)

    This is going to be awesome. You are one of the few owners who thinks about what the players want to have an ideal factions experience.

    Also, if there isn't going to be/already is, you should add a /f core top command or something like it so we can check our competition.

    Yup we are planning on doing that. However, it will be 15% inaccurate so players don't know exactly who is #1.

    So players can't use it to quickly patch up their base if someone is raiding them.

    Oh actually I think the wording was a little bit confusing. Here, I changed it
    "A better genbucket — lava buckets spawn pillars of cobblestone like a normal genbucket. However, to prevent exploiting this feature, a 10 minute delay will be implemented from placement to cobble genning."

    Oooooo I get it. That's a really good idea. Also, you should release ranks soon before the sale is over so more ppl will buy ranks, and more ppl will play (hopefully)

    Yeah, definitely get them up before New Years probably. Just trying to finalize them and make sure I get all the perms in the description of each one. :)

    The way I would do the keys is either with Votifier or with a plugin called CommandAd. Emerald will likely use Votifier.
