As you all know we have (been working hard for the past few months) to get in line with Mojangs EULA. As of creating this post, we believe that we have created a shop that makes the most out of the very restrictive EULA from Mojang and has the best perks for all of you.
We have created all of the plugins required for these changes and new features ourselves, you won’t find any of these plugins anywhere, ever. What does this mean for you? This means that you will be able to use features and perks that you are more than likely not going to use or see on any other modded minecraft server.
We understand that for some of you this is a set back in terms of perks that you used to have. We are very sorry for this, unfortunately we can’t do anything about it. If we were to keep all the perks there would be 2 issues:
- Mojang would blacklist us and we would have to bypass or shut down (we could also get sued).
- We could go bankrupt because no one buys the new perks/ranks.
Hopefully you will understand if you find that we need to remove perks or features from the store or from your old rank.
You may ask, why not just bypass?
Bypassing the EULA is currently done through a loophole, this loophole is gonna be patched someday… We want to be here for the long run, we do not want to have to close in a few months because the loophole got patched.
Besides this, we have a reputation to uphold. ToastyNetworks is looked upon within the Modded minecraft community, we have high standards and would like to keep it this way.
This post will be lengthy, but should contain a lot of details.
First of all we would like to talk with you about the new features we have (and still are) working hard on.
Let’s start off with Boosters. A Booster once used will allow Everyone on that selected server access to the perk for that time period. If you want to learn more on how they work and how to use them, you can click here.
Upon release, we will offer the following perks:
- Always-On Chunkloaders
- Claim Blocks
- Keep Inventory
Secondly, we would like to introduce 6 new ranks! Meet Hecate (15$), Artemis (25$), Tyche (35$), Hypnos( 45$), Poseidon (55$) and our brand new subscription rank based off Poseidon, Nemesis! (Base price: 5$ / month, see below)
Each rank will get a selection of boosters, trails, glows, pets, disguises, fancy hats, block trails and more features!
Nemesis is a new concept we are introducing. It will be a subscription rank for players who would like to support us monthly and get rewarded for doing it with monthly booster rewards.
The base price of this rank is 5$, this means that it starts at 5$. This rank requires you to select which boosters you would like to receive, that is why it has a base price. Depending on the boosters you select, the price will vary.
You can only purchase Nemesis if you purchased Poseidon first.
Another feature we have been working extremely hard on, Fancy Hats.
Fancy Hats are pieces of armor, like glasses, hats, backpacks, parachutes, weapons and more. These are all purely cosmetic and disguise your armor. Here are some examples of fancy hats you will be able to purchase once they are available:
We are very excited about these new cosmetics and we hope you are as well. We also plan to release top voter cosmetics and exclusive staff events as well. This will give you a chance to show off to your fellow Toasters! Talking about a Toaster…. there will also be a Toaster cosmetic 😉
Hold up… There’s more! On our 1.12 servers we are also releasing Pets! Pets are cute little animals that follow you around anywhere you go. There are over 200 different kind of pets. Each rank will give permission to more types of pets. We can’t wait to show you all some of these cute pets, so here are some pictures:
This is not all, we’ve also added some smaller changes. You will now be able to purchase custom join and leave messages. Here are a few examples that you will love:
There are way more, make sure to visit the store to find out!
We understand that you will have many questions and concerns about your current donator ranks. Let’s talk about that next.
We have tried our best to come up with solutions to maintain satisfaction for all parties. This is why we will not be removing the old ranks, regardless of what Mojang wants or thinks. However, we will be removing support for these legacy ranks. This means that on new servers, you will not have the same perks and will certainly not get the “single supply of…” items such as money, claim blocks, crate keys , etc.
Besides the removal of the support for these ranks we are also forced to remove some perks and permissions from the ranks:
- Ability to use Always-On Chunkloaders permanently (requires booster now)
- Ability to use the /fly command permanently (requires booster now)
- Ability to use the /heal command permanently (requires booster now)
- Ability to use the /feed command permanently (requires booster now)
- Ability to use the /god command permanently (requires booster now, will be available through community goals later this month)
This list may be changed at any time. If Mojang decides to disagree with this and wants to remove another perk from the old ranks, we will have to do it.
Seeing as the old ranks will no longer be supported, you will still be free to continue to use them if you want. However, we will be offering free migration to the new ranks. This will only be available for until 31 December 2018.
You can migrate your rank by going to the hub and using the following command: /convert
The migration table is as follows:
- Iris => Hecate
- Oculus => Hecate
- Requiem => Artemis
- Nyx => Tyche
- Lazarus => Hypnos
- Vulcan => Poseidon
- Mercury => Poseidon
As you might expect, an overhaul like this might come with new bugs as well. We hope that you will be able to help us find and report the bugs that you might discover. We aim to fix bugs as soon as possible. You can report bugs or issues by opening a ticket in-game, on Discord or by posting a thread on the forums.
We can imagine that you might still have a few questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to post a comment down below, ask in Discord or contact support if you would like to know more.
Please note: Fancy Hats and Block Trails are not yet available, we are waiting to hear back from Axle on this matter. His whereabouts are currently unknown. We expect to release these features as soon as possible.
We would like to hear what you all think about this shop overhaul, please do not hesitate to share your thoughts about this update down below!
