Improved Voting Rewards

I decided to give voting rewards a bit of a boost so I've made the following changes:
  • New $150 bonus for voting on all 5 sites on the same day.
  • The top 3 players of the week bonus has been increased from $100 to $500.
  • The top 3 players of the month bonus has been increased from $150 to $1000.
The more votes we get the more the server gets noticed and the more new players we get so we really do appreciate every single one.


Modded Client 1.0.6 Released

This version is purely to update Forge to the latest version, it contains a number of small but fairly important bug fixes.


Shop Changes

To address the concerns of a number of players I've made some further tweaks to the items available and prices in the shop.

While I realise this may frustrate a small number of players in the short term, most seem to understand the need to balance the economy for the long-term good of the server.

It's vital that the sell prices for different items/blocks are balanced to encourage a diverse range of activities in game, and obviously if something is upsetting that balance it needs to be addressed. 

It's also not always possible to foresee how players will use features and sometimes things are overlooked or don't work as expected, so although we'd love to get everything right first time it's simply not possible.

We've made huge progress in getting things balanced over the last few weeks and I'd like to thank everyone that's contributed by pointing out and reporting potential issues. Hopefully this will be last significant pricing change we need to make.
