Hope you all had a great thanksgiving. In my last announcement I've promised you to try and bring you weekly updates about what we are working on and what we have planned, it also allows us to take your feedback before fully releasing whatever project we are working on.
This week's topic will be a feature I've been teasing for a while but was set aside due to me being busy, however, I've started working on it again but this time with more better ideas in mind. There is no estimate on when it will be released.
But before we start, I'd like to remind you that we are having a Black Friday sale, 35% off all server store items, so if you have been thinking to buy anything on the store, now is the perfect chance.

This "Crafting System" is a whole new concept to Cities which gives everyone an equal chance of earning loot and exclusive items by completing various different tasks.
It's not merely a quest-type of thing, but rather a progressive system to constantly reward you for playing the game, for example; killing mobs or special bosses, and by completing a task, you earn Crafting EXP which can increase your drop rate, or give double items when crafting. At the moment I am not willing to have it say what the tasks are. Your normal playing activities may be one of those tasks, and if not, you can ask other players what method works for them.
Why is it called a crafting system you may ask? By completing different and random tasks, you get the chance of receiving what is called a Fragment, which on its own is useless, however by combining multiple of those Fragments, you can craft a Key or a Chest. It can be a Steel Fragment, or a Wood Fragment, Fragments come in different forms, and it will all be random drops.
What's a Key and a Chest? You will need to craft those as mentioned above, and you need both to earn loot. A chest requires a key to be unlocked, and it can contain up to three different loot items, including exclusive and valuable ones, such as Slimefun or admin cosmetic items.
If you are not about grinding, you won't be left out don't worry. On special occasions, new versions of Reward Shells will be released for a limited time, those basically are Chests that require no key to open and contain better loot drops. Will be available either on the server shop, or other ways like voting.
This for example is a Crown Shell, one version of a Reward Shell.
And you may ask, what's an Epic item? That's a story for another day (Planning still unfinished), but it will be part of the ranking system of new, possibly cosmetics only, items for you to show off or sell/trade. (More information will be out as soon as it's done).
What do you think? If you have any feedback, let me know below.
Thanks, until next time.
