After a week of voting, the community awards this year has come to a close. I'd like to personally thank everyone for taking part for the past five years, and I hope you can join us next year for a bigger and better community awards.
Oh hey, has it really been a whole year since the last awards?
Yes, it's that time of year again, the fifth annual community awards, it's time to vote for most notable players of the year!
Over the course of the year we've seen a bunch of people join us, leave us and every single player has made an impact on the server.
There will be a significant update tomorrow morning, mainly focused around helping various aspects of the server stay balanced at all levels of activity. While I'm not going to go into detail on all of the numbers that we have chosen, then general approach is to aim for low risk resulting in low reward and high risk resulting in high reward if successful. As we have only been able to test balance settings on spreadsheets, once these changes have been live for a while we can tweak them if we receive detailed and constructive criticism on how fair and balanced they are.

ONE IN THE CHAMBER (BUSINESS) The concept is simple, you get a gun and a knife. Your gun only has one bullet, however you gain another bullet after each kill. Your knife is your other option, but be careful as you can only use that close range. Stabs and shots are one hit kill, so be accurate.

As you may of have noticed, @MrLewis has sadly resigned from his role as Senior Administrator. We'd like to thank him for his hard work and time he has given toward the staff team and the community during his time.
As a result, I've been attempting to decide who would be the right fit for the role, and have come to the conclusion that two Senior Administrators would be beneficial to pushing the staff team forward. This way we can handle refund requests, general community work & staff-related matters more effectively.
I hope you'll join me in congratulating @TinySlayer and @ayjay ツ to their new roles, and give them both a warm welcome to the Senior Administration team.
Today we have a slightly bigger update for you that mainly focuses on changing crafting drastically and adding smoke detectors. Here's the full changelog:

Added a nice overview of the mixture that lists all skills required to craft it from scratch and additionally any raw ingredients you are missing to fully craft this item (any intermediate items you already have are taken into account as well)
You can now craft an entire item even though you don't have all immediate ingredients, as long as you have enough ingredients to craft any intermediate...
