Season 5 Development Update

Greetings Splash!
It's been quite some time since the last season and even an update to the server. However, this changes today! I'll be giving you guys some news and progression on the progression for Season 5 and what happens next. Keep reading for dates & other important details.​

Balance
Since last season there have been balances in-between seasons 3 and 4. However, this time around I've decided to do more drastic changes and keep more fairness between the ranks. One thing that was noticeable in Season 4 was that players had the max gear very quickly and had very little incentive to grind for more. To combat this we will lower kit gear, increase cooldown, but also add more items that would be useful in the long run in those kits to supplement.

The first change that will happen is kits.

Algae (Soon to be Aqua):
  • 24h Cooldown -> 48
  • Diamond Armor -> Prot I Iron Armor
  • Diamond Tools -> Iron Tools (Efficiency II & Sharp I)
Coral:
  • 24h Cooldown -> 72h
  • Diamond Armor -> Prot III Iron Armor
  • Diamond Tools -> Iron Tools (Efficiency III & Sharp II)
Tidal:
  • 24h Cooldown -> 72h
  • Diamond Armor [Prot 1, Unbreaking II] -> Regular Diamond Armor
  • Diamond Tools & Weapons now Efficiency I
Diver:
  • 24h Cooldown -> 96h
  • Prot 1 Diamond, Unbreaking II
  • Tools & Weapons Remain the Same
Aquarist:
  • 24h Cooldown -> 96h
  • Double the XP Bottles
  • Prot 2 Diamond, Unbreaking II
  • Tools & Weapons Remain the Same
Atlantis:
  • 24h Cooldown -> 96h
  • 2.5x the amount of XP Bottles
  • Prot 3 Diamond, Unbreaking II
  • No Flame on Bow
  • Tools are Efficiency III now
  • Sword is Sharp III now

Shop Details
The shop will be going under an overhaul with the aim to create a player-based economy.

Below we plan to use this economy guide for how most shop items will go:

-> Shop Prices

The shop itself will also be limiting what its current features are showcased for more earned-based gameplay.

Red = Mostly/75% being removed
Orange = Sell / Buy only depending on the shop.

From the image above. Many plans are bound to happen with the current shop. To keep the economy fairer to nondonators, the donator shop will be overhauled completely. The current plan is to only offer exclusive items and not to sell/buy items in the donator shop to be completely and to be limiting to the number of items on it. The vision is to keep the donator shop as more as a reward, not an advantage.

Ores will no longer be purchasable in the shop instead they will be sold. The reason for this change is to keep players from maxing out gear and to use the more natural resources that 1.18 will offer itself.

Wood will have its price go up for being purchasable while selling wood would be drastically increased. I personally aim for players to use a variety of farms and different inventions to make money during the early game.

Flowers & Mob Drops will have most of its items removed completely.

A new concept is being planned to have a limited-time Shop based on a server-wide event, nothing to showcase for now.

New & Returning Features
A lot of planned features are to be returning this season along with new ones.

Custom Enchants
Custom Enchants are making a grand return, mostly PVE to keep up with survival gameplay.

Big Updates

This section will focus on the changes to ranks and tags, keys, and items, as well as the addition of server-ran events.

Server Version
The server will be updated to run on 1.16

Rank name changes
Due to complaints about the rank names from last season, we will be changing the names in order to better fit the theme of The Splash.
Aqua → Algae
Silver → Coral
Ocean → Tidal
Pro → Diver
Legend → Aquarist
Atlantis → Atlantis

Tags
This will include which tags will be no longer obtainable, new tags, and our new limited edition tags!

New Tags
- [ Aquatic ]​
- [ Nessi ]​
- [ ❤ ] (Changed from <3)
- [ ✩ ]​
- [ ✩Event✩ ] (only available from event crate)
No Longer Obtainable
- [ Scared ]​
- [ Savage ]​
- [ Memer ]​
- [ Gamer ]​
- [GG ]​
Limited Edition Tags
The Splash will now be offering limited edition holiday tags! We will be announcing new tags and their availability on our Twitter and Discord.​
Crates
Crate name changes and introducing our new crate!
Quack Crate → Coastal Crate
All New! → Event Crate
The event crate is won by winning a server ran event

Events
The Splash will now be hosting server-ran events! Our goal is to host an event every week in order to win an event key. Make sure to check our Twitter and Discord to know when these events will take place!

Some of the events include...
- Four corners​
- Parkour tournaments​
- Spleef​
- Building Competitions​
- And more!
Other (Recently Updated)
- Sell wands will be changed from 150 uses to 500 uses​
- There will not be an official server PVP area​
- There will be no /fly in the end​
- Staff applications will close on November 28th, 2020​
Perk Changes
- Removal of Spectator mode​
- /god will be removed from Atlantis​
- Legend & Atlantis will now have hunger (both still have /feed)​
Reasoning for these changes: Our goal is to make the server fun for everyone, however players who either don't have ranks, or have lower ranks, aren't able to experience the game like the higher ranks do. The end is wiped out before a whole day has passed, and those who are able to fly have a significant advantage over the others in obtaining loot. Spectator mode has been frequently abused in the past, and knowing that players with this ability are able to use it either getting into places they shouldn't be in, or using it to easily find valuable items isn't a part of the 'enjoyable for everyone' experience that we want to portray. The higher ranks still have valuable perks, however we want to make sure the survival server stays a survival server--and in doing so we must review and adjust perks accordingly.​

Last Notes

We are grateful to have such dedicated members who stuck with us for the past year! We hope to continue expanding this community, and keep the sever enjoyable with new content. Stay safe, and have a wonderful rest of the year!
