We are extremely excited for all the support MC Frontier has received over the past week. We are pleased to announce the first update is coming to MC Frontier! We plan to continually put out weekly updates with new content, along with occassional large updates involving major game play changes. You can find the new updates live on the server below!
Backpacks have been the most highly requested item to be added to MC Frontier. We are pleased to announce a backpack system where you and all your friends can store mass amounts of items on your character! Backpacks will drop on death, so be careful! There are four new backpacks along with a special miner's chest.
Another major request that has been seen is the addition of PvP being integrated in the gamemode itself. We've still given players to choice to PvP or not. PvP will never be forced upon anybody. All path mines past the mountain outpost is now a PvP zone. All items can be lost in these areas if killed by a fellow player, but the risk can be worth the reward because these mines contain much more rare ores. All mines at cities/outposts will remain a non-PvP zone, but will have no boost in ores.
Along with the new PvP mines, PvP in the wilderness is now an option. You can use the /duel command if you spot someone in the wild. If they accept the duel, it initiated right there and then. All items will drop if killed by a player via duels.
Many new items have been added to the game to make various tasks much easier. One of which is the blazing tools line:
We've heard your suggestions, there is now another way to obtain obsidian. This method will take longer, but has almost no risk! Obsidian around the world is now minable and will drop obsidian shards. Obsidian requires at least a gold pickaxe to be broken. Obsidian blocks can be crafted from these shards.
Various bug fixes and updates were made in this update as well, they can be found below:
