    OPBlocks V3 is finally here! after months of waiting the largest update OPBlocks has ever seen is now live. It's packed with awesome features that'll keep you the players entertained for hours on end. The next few days are for Beta testing, allowing our developers hard at work behind the scenes to pad out any problems you come across.

    Keep an eye on this post as over the next few days as we'll be updating it with more new features we've been working on!


    [​IMG]

    Candy has been completely revamped from textures all the way to special abilities! Candy is now obtainable from a variety of ways such as making your own Candy Farms or by purchasing a Candy Factory!

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In order to improve your candy it needs to be processed through a candy refinery that allows it to proceed through the tiers. Once your candy has been placed in the refinery you have to wait a certain amount of time for it to reach the next tier. To improve the productivity of your refinery you can unlock more slots, this means you can refine multiple pieces of candy at once! Your refinery can refine your candy all the way up to Tier 3, once you reach this Tier special effects are applied to your candy that'll be explained later in the post.

    [​IMG]

    Candy factories are used to obtain candy, low level candy generators near enough always drop raw candy but as you level up your factory loot will drop more frequently and the quality of the drops will improve. For example you might start seeing Tier 1 and even Tier 2 candy dropping.

    [​IMG]
    There are now 3 tiers of candy, unlike before candy farms now drop Raw Candy, when you consume raw candy basic effects will be given to you. Higher tier candy can be consumed to receive stronger and more useful effects that benefit you in PvP. Once you refine your Candy all the way to Tier 3 you will receive an overpowered special effect when consumed! Below is a list of all the Tier 3 special abilities we've added.

    Donor Candy
    Donor Candy has been around on the store for some time but now it's even better! each donor candy has a special effect similar to Tier 3 candy but even better! Check out the Donor Candy on our Store! Once again below is a list of donor candy effects.

    Rewards can be accessed through the menu, they offer weekly bonuses for regular player and improved rewards for donors. Loyalty rewards have also been added meaning you will be rewarded weekly for achieving a 1 day play time.​

    [​IMG]

    An amazing texture pack has been created specifically for OPBlocks. We ask that you come online and check it out as screenshots will not do! A few things that have been added are:​
    • 3D Refinery & Factory models
    • Tasty looking pickaxe
    • Candy mob textures
    • New candy textures
    • New candy farm texture
    [​IMG]
    Community feedback has led to us adding a brand-new free world! This free world will have land-claiming and will be unlocked at prestige two. For those of you who wish to access the free world sooner, you can buy instant access from the webstore.

    [​IMG]
    Many changes have been made to PvP, not only do we have new and improved PvP arenas we also have a new and improved duel system. To fight another player issue the /duel <player> command, you can choose what kit you wish to fight your opponent with. If you want to join a queue of players looking to battle one another then type /queue and wait to be matched with another player. There is also a 25% chance of a players head dropping during PvP

    [​IMG]
    Pets have been re added to OPBlocks, they can be obtained from crates or one the store. You can ride your pet and even mount them on your head. Pets range from animals to mobs and some even have a candy look to them.​

    Our in-game economy, arguably the most important thing when looking at prison servers, has been completely reworked. It is now harder to rank up and such, especially when you start advancing through the prestiges.
    When you issue the /shop command in-game now you might notice something different, it no longer instantly directs you to the shop but opens a menu giving you two options. Option one is you open the brand new Shop GUI, this allows you to purchase items on the go! The second option is to warp to our significantly improved shop, the new build and custom trading system make this an enjoyable place to purchase goods.

    The Auction House is a place to buy items from other players or sell your own, if you type the /ah command in-game you will see a list of items other players are selling. To sell your own items simply hold the item you wish to sell and type the /ah sell <price> and your desired item will be listed on the Auction House.

    [​IMG]

    All of our custom enchants are now fully functional and better than ever! We have also introduced 2 new enchants drill and laser to make all that hard mining a thing of the past.

    [​IMG]

    Lucky Blocks have been reimplemented and will now allow you to gain all sorts of rewards! Lucky blocks now spawn in all mines and can give you rewards such as etoken bags and crate keys. Donor mines also have a higher percentage of lucky blocks spawning!
