Hey guys, with the map releasing tomorrow, I wanted to throw in some last minute things that we implemented and give a brief summary of the server, just like I did last map. It really helps to let people know what features we have to offer!

http://battlemade.com/threads/why-insiding-is-bannable.605/
http://battlemade.com/threads/battlemade-official-rules.595/
Changes this map:
Endstone is no longer protected by creeper eggs
Custom enchants like Rage have been removed due to them being insanely OP
Gen Bucket has been upgraded and improved
Economy re-balanced (bosses changed as well)
Squids, Iron Golems, and Cows are the main source of money.
Sugarcane is $15,000 per inventory to encourage farming.
End is now perfectly flat (y:30-bedrock)
Crates have been reworked to make them more valuable.
/bp drops on death
1 Corner claim per faction

/f top winners will receive a prize at the end of the map. Due to last map's quick death due to dupes, bugs, and glitches, we will be handing out an /f top prize this map instead, and hopefully it can be a cash prize payout.
Decided at the end of the map!

This map of Factions will be more exotic than ever before. We have new custom plugins, a more balanced and even economy, and the ability to win ranks faster than ever before. We are keeping the same world setups as before. 5000x5000 overworld (corners allowed) and 5000x5000 end (corners allowed) with a custom endstone layer to make base building much easier (endstone y:30-bedrock). To make base building even easier, we have implemented a new way to make bases! Now, making bases takes the placement of a lava bucket (a couple hundred times) and your walls will gen themselves. No water, no lava, no mess. Guaranteed not to cheese, not to overflow, and not to cobble monster anymore! (https://gyazo.com/b10bc306ff1a3e569d84cdb00778a2c2)

GenBucket:
https://gyazo.com/7e4673aa1d02738a0f08515dc2189bbe

https://gyazo.com/7f7cd19d4a463dbdb47caa9c2d6fe7c7

https://gyazo.com/d41fa4a31b006bec1b2fd09028612d48
GenBucket stops genning the second it encounters ANY block or a sponge (3 blocks away, 2 block gap) to ensure that genning is as smooth and efficient as possible! Use /warp genbucket in game to get a look at crafting recipes!

A TnT-Free Grace period of 1 week will be instated to allow factions to make their bases safely and easily.
Lava is scatterable by tnt, and does not re-flow. It sits in a suspended state until updated, thus rendering regen walls useless and a waste of time.

Insiding is now BANNABLE and the faction that is insided will have ALL spawners returned. Lying about insiding will result in an automatic disbanding of the faction. Homes that are set in faction land other than your own and ally will automatically be deleted. Teleporting other factions into your base for them to raid you, insiding. Mining/stealing from other fac members, disbanding, unclaim alling, unclaiming faction land for other factions to claim, etc. are examples of insiding. Be careful with your actions or you will be punished. (http://battlemade.com/threads/why-insiding-is-bannable.605/)
Bases are 100% reusable. You cannot sethome in faction land other than your own or allies, if you log off in faction land other than your own or allies you will be teleported to spawn.

The faction that gets the VERY corner most claim in any desired corner will be able to obtain and keep that corner for as long as they own that corner. If they are over claimed, they lose rights to that corner. If they are insided, they will regain rights to that corner. Any claims that are closer than 20 chunks to their corner (considered bitch claims) will be removed, and if your faction has enough, you will be punished.

This map, the top spawner is a squid spawner. We did this to encourage people to make larger bases that are bed-sky. Squid will only spawn below y:65, and therefore you need to prepare your base accordingly. Automatic farms are allowed on here, but pumpkin/melons are not sellable on here to prevent lag. Farms like nether warts/sugarcane that require you to hand farm them sell for alot more money!

Printer is allowed and works phenomenally smooth on the server. (no longer kicked for inventory tweaks, and anti-cheat won't spam the chat of staff when printing)

Homes will be deleted if you leave/are kicked from a faction to help prevent insiding (which again is bannable) and also makes it so your old allies no longer keep homes there!
Using alt factions to claim around your base to expand buffer will result in a disband. 20 chunks from your first wall is as far as your claims can go!
Cobble Monstering while tnt is disabled will result in a ban!

All players receive /fly in their own faction land

Raid events and PvP events will occur weekly!

Koths every day (schedule being posted soon)

Blast 3 Pickaxes mine in a 3x3x3 area to make base progress speed along!

/f rankup allows you to boost abilities of your faction, like Increased mob drops, Permanent Speed/Strength, No Fall Damage, Power Boosts, Custom Tags, and more!

TnT/Sand despawn when entering spawn claims to prevent griefing! It also despawns past World Border to stop world border raiding.

AutoCannons are illegal, and any attempt to bypass our anti-auto will result in a ban and a rollback of the faction's items that were illegally taken. Clocks on cannons included are illegal.
Any form of "unraidable" defense will result in punishment for the faction.
Staff will be playing on alts this map!

My role on the server this map will be purely to help maintain the integrity of BattleMade, to educate the players on how to become better factions players, and to make sure people have fun. I will not be playing this map, I will be helping anyone and everyone with anything and everything. I will host events with the help of a few others, and check for hackers! If anyone has any comments/concerns/suggestions please let me know and I'll be sure to do my best to help!
