Its been while since the last blog post update, there have been a significant amount of changes, updates and new additions.

Lets start with our new rank; Cadet. Cadet is our new first rank after Deckhand. The jump from deckhand to Sailor was a big one and the gap needed closing, So a competition was created to pick a name for this rank, Cadet winning between the staff & community and is achievable with 10 hours gameplay, 5000 blocks broken and 5000 blocks walked on foot.

Congratulations to our first Competition winners!

  • SuperGL with Cadet – Custom Diamond Sword
  • CrazyPirate1  with Buccaneer – Custom Diamond Sword
  • Markusi13 with Navigator – Custom Diamond Sword
  • shiphoo with Matey – Custom Diamond Sword

Kits

With a rank introduction I also refreshed Gunner and Boatswain /kits.

Gunner Kit: 3 TNT, 20 Sulphur (Gun Powder), 20 Arrows, 1 Fire Enhanced bow, 1 Pair of Iron leggings. Redeemable every 3.5 hours.

Boatswain Kit: 2 Ender Pearls, 1 Pumpkin Pie, 1 Lead, 1 Iron Helmet with waterworker:2 & respiration:2, 2 Large fireworks.

Cannons

Cannons are now fire-able by all ranks, Sailors can now load them but Gunners are still the only class able to create cannons, In addition to the permission change I have added 2 new projectiles that can be fired from a Cannon, TNT and Fireworks.

tnt_icon32Clusterbomb; This is the most magnificent projectile, load a block of TNT into a cannons and rain hell on your enemies.

Grid_Firework_RocketIncendiary; Fireworks not only have a magnificent display on impact area but sets the surrounding area on fire.

New cannon types were added for Gunner too, Iron cannon and Mortar, Both 2x Iron blocks, Mortars face Vertical and Cannons horizontal.

Auto-reloading was activated for all cannons, You simply need a chest; they will transfer gunpowder and a projectile to the cannon before firing. A cannon can auto reload when fired with redstone or when fired by a player.

MoreBows & MorePotions

I added these plugins to expand the Bows and Potions in-game to create some more fruitful gameplay, A dedicated page for activated Bows, Potions and in the near future More Swords will be created soon, for now you can reference MoreBows and MorePotions developer pages for recipes.

Fleet of new ship types

I couldn’t have a new Rank without introducing new minecraft moving ship types, Welcome the Dhow (Cadet), Schooner (Sailor), Submarine (Sailor), Brig (Carpenter), Frigate (Gunner), Galleon (Boatswain) and Manowar (Lieutenant, Commander & Captain) There will be two more ships to come for Commander and Captain soon!

Here is a specification sheet of each ship that can be created, for each ship you need to have the right rank and meet its requirements, use the ship name on a sign and movecraft will alert you of problems.

Dhow

A lateen-rigged ship with one or two masts, used chiefly in the Arabian region.

The Dhow is a small ship, a starting ship to test the waters, Its for Cadet, that falls between Deckhand and Sailor, It may be small but its snappy! Block are limited to “light” or wood based blocks, you can’t use stone on Dhow’s, here are the current stats:

  • Cadet Rank
