Hello everyone,

It has been a while since our last announcement post was made. In the meanwhile i've been busy with life, college and ofcourse Foxcraft. A lot of you have recently been busy with exams, I hope you all will pass them with straight A's! If not don't be dissapointed for to long, I failed 1 year in high school and can tell you it's not the end of the world!

Regarding latest workflow.
I have been providing more of a life service to all of the gamemodes instead of periodically resetting and updating them. I think that continuously updating gamemodes is the right approach for some of these gamemodes like Skyblock, Survival & Kingdoms, they in my opinion don't need resets every 6 months or so. Infact I'd rather keep updating them all the time and test out new things every once in a while.

Prison introduction
Our community has let us know that they really wanted to play on the old prison map again. The current prison setup wasn't something to write home about either, it was a setup I had mixed feelings with right from the start because of the a-z ranks and free rank stuff. It just made it generic and took away the unique feeling previous prison setups had.

We didn't sleep on that one and decided it's time to completely redo our prison gamemode the right way.

Before continuing with the exact details of this prison reset...
I would like to thank @ProbationZ and @Justinc2522 for completely rebuilding our second ever prison map from scratch using old gameplay footage. I know that must have been tough task to complete. Everything is spot on though. Thanking you both cincerely. Playing prison on the old map would not be possible without them because we don't save any backups of super old data. This map dates back from 2013/2014 I believe. Correct me if im wrong guys.

So the new prison, what it's like? Please tell us more.

Here is a short list of it's features:
  • New prison ranks: F O X Elite Complete Warden (everybody starts at F)
  • Prison Wardens. These are pesky npc's that when defeated will give you great rewards. Beware though they can be quite the challange to defeat and will spawn every once in a while.
  • Actual gang fights with dedicated arena (with own gear)
  • The gang arena also allows for 1v1 fights (with own gear)
  • Level up gangs
  • New name tags that show prison rank and the gang you are in
  • Added McMMO. All abilities are disabled in pvp areas like gang arena and /warp pvp
  • Custom plots (medium sized-ish)
  • Bounties
  • Leaderboard area
  • Custom wood farm (Basicly regrowing tree's like old times)
  • Custom prison blocks. Each rankup will be different then the last one. Making core gameplay hopefully not stale. For example in one of the mines you will not need to mine any blocks but instead do other tasks to earn money.
  • Vote party with Pinata (yay!)
  • Minions
  • Withdrawels of any kind (limitless economy)
  • Cobblestone generators that generate ores
  • Create warp signs to your plot
  • Chest shops
  • Casino
  • Player cell renting will come soon.
These are some of the features the new prison has to offer. You will have to see everything else for yourself tomorrow.
We hope you will be joining us tomorrow at 7PM CET (1 PM for the US) time for the opening of our new prison gamemode. A countdown will be displayed in the hub when you use your server selector. Originally the reset was scheduled for 4PM CET but I've moved this time to 7PM CET so that more can be there at launch!

At last here are some screenshots from the map!


We hope to see you online tomorrow.

@ProbationZ should get 99% of the credit. He led the build and did an amazing job with everything and gave some new nice features in areas. I’m glad prison is back and will definitely be playing. The new features are a great addition!

You asked for a correction. Prison was released in February 2014, as I was one of the first people to join it and I remember... Because I'm OG... I was Guard at one point as well, got screenshots somewhere. I joined Fox before Skywars, Prison and other gamemodes even existed.

Good work lads, hopefully Prison actually gets a playercount because only Survival and Skyblock are getting stable playercounts rn...

Well well well folks. The time has finally come. May be 4 years late, but it is better than nothing. I hope I can be on to play and bring back some old memories. Thank you @ProbationZ ( you're gonna get thrashed kid) and @Justinc2522 ( pls false ban me again for hacking at the age of 9) for working very hard on this. :)

Do you get your rank back if you had one on the old prison? Also would a global rank give you a rank?
