    Prison 2 Status: Maps: 80% complete, Mines: Complete, Other Prison Stuff: Unknown%. Getting close to release.
    Mineoply Status: RELEASED! (/server mineopoly)
    "Please note there may be a bug or two. Just report them here please: Error Report


    Hello everyone,


    We hope you are enjoying the new year. All of us are busy and back in school/work.

    I just finished setting up a new website feature! Now all sections of the forms that had templates (That most people were blind to) how have forms. These forms are user friendly and basically require a user to add the data we need. It also organizes it for easy viewing.

    We may look like we are doing nothing to the server. We are actually spending a lot of time on updates.
    The two major things we are working on are:

    1. A replacement for prison.
    2. A custom-coded minigame.
    We have been working on both of these updates since the Summer! We are making them perfect.

    Prison's replacement.
    Here's a preview of one of the worlds: https://www.shadowxcraft.net/map5/
    We have spent an extremely large amount of time on that, and that's only 75% done. That preview doesn't even show it all, there are the things on the other side of the mountain, and the things in the mountains.

    If you have suggestions on how we should make prison's replacement better, and more importantly more unique, say so in the comments!

    Expected release: Within the next 2 months.


    The MiniGame
    This update has stayed very private up to this point, and the reason for that is because we don't want people to copy us. @tspringst33n is the one developing the game, with some help from @nickrules and I (@lizardfreak321). The game is a minecraft version of Monopoly, called "Mineopoly". It will be an exclusive to ShadowXCraft.

    Expected release: Within the next month if everything goes to plan.


    Please leave comments or create threads for Minepoly suggestions and tag tspringst33n. Please do not message tspringst33n as it causes a lot of spam.

    We are planning on using the quick-game rules by the time we finish. However long it takes to finish a quick-game.

    Hopefully more players will actually follow the template now that it's right in their face... Though I wish there was an advanced side for those who like the old system like me (I'm kinda a "PowerUser", that why)... but the changes are for the better.

    Anyway, I'm excited to see all the changes that may happen this year, and I hope no other servers steal anymore things from SxC like I heard in the past.

    I am actually not a fan of Monopoly... but I believe the SxC community can make "Minepoly" fun... and I believe I foreseen "Minepoly" coming before I even joined SxC.. XD... Yes... I can sometime foresee things that may and generally does happen... though I normally forget all of them until the moment it happen.

    I really like this new update. There are some things I am kinda confused with though. For example; the new prison map. Like is that "island" area the prison and everyone has free roam capabilities?

    The templates for the reports are so awesome. It used to be a pain having to copy and paste, and there would always be that person who doesn't use the template. Its a lot more organized too.

    The "Mineopoly" seems like a really fun mini-game. I can kinda see how it can be incorporated into Minecraft but without actually seeing it and playing it, its hard to imagine what it would actually be like. My only concern for this is that not a lot of players will play this but i hope it doesn't come down to that.

    All in all this is an awesome update! Thanks to all the staff who are going to make this possible. Thanks for all your hard work!! :D

    When on it you cannot go past the fence, so it looks like it's just land. You will be able to roam more the more you rankup.

    We don't know exactly. I did the math (Yes, there's math involved) with diamond pickaxes. What do you want it to be?[/QUOTE]

    Omg LOL! That doesn't look AT ALL like the Prison 2 map I worked on with Blast... Its such a large map. Tbh it looks kinda like an adventure map tho.
    Also, Minepoly?.. Uh.. Sounds great, the name doe.. lol.. Should be Mineopoly imo.. But whatever, it looks really fun. Can't wait for it to come out!! I'm a fan of both Minecraft and Monopoly so it sounds awesome. Thanks to Tyler for all the work he must have put into that plugin.. And not only Tyler, but all the staff who help the server :D
