It's that time of month (or week, lately) where staff sat down and decided what needed to be fixed on SMP. Lately we've made a lot of changes, and its starting to feel like we keep adding new things on top of other new things. The point of this update is to smooth a lot of these recent changes out, to put it one way. Take a look:
- The End will be reset later today for spring 2015.
- The Minigame portal-well in spawn now takes you directly to the Spleef Arena. All other games have either been removed due to them not working or they are being overhauled.
- We have plans in the works to add some functionality to monster heads. For now, I will be paying 10 arc per head of any kind on my alt account so that I can build up a collection of them to make stores with in the future.
- Knights, Patricians, and Warlords will now have access to the Officer Lounge, a new warp where rank-specific items will be sold. These items have been removed from the server store and are fully functional at /warp lounge.
- The buy price of Patrician has been changed to 200,000 arc (was 20,000). Players who already bought the rank have been demoted to Knight and refunded their original 20,000.
- The buy price of Warlord has been changed to 780,000 arc (was 200,000). Players who already bought the rank have been demoted to Knight and refunded their original 220,000 (for both ranks).
- The Halcyon Pickaxe has been removed from the buy section of the server store. Warlords can now mine monster spawners with any Silk Touch I pickaxe. Players may turn in their Halcyon Pickaxe for a 500,000 arc rebate.
I realize some of the above changes may be alarming. Our aim is to set high, but obtainable goals for our players to reach, and we aren't out to screw over the players that did well under our last system. Patricians, Warlords, and Halcyon owners will all be compensated for their efforts. To sum up, we have some more minor pricing changes below as well, to try to make it harder to get money effortlessly.
- The sell price of Melon Slice has been changed to 2 arc (was 5).
- The sell price of Melon Seed has been changed to 2 arc (was 3).

- The buy price of Iron Ingot has been changed to 85 arc (was 75).
- The buy price of Emerald has been changed to 800 arc (was 1300).
- The buy price of Wolf Spawn Egg has been changed to 55000 arc (was 50000).
