Hey guys.

It’s been a while since I’ve written an announcement, but I’ve got something super cool for you all. Many of you, I’m sure, remember Skyblocky. To cut straight to the chase, CandyCraft will be rebranding and changing back to Skyblocky.​

Specific details
A lot of the specific details are still yet to be decided & announced but as for Forums, we will be using the CandyCraft forums but with the Skyblocky theme. We think it is best to do this as you will all still have your posts and playing history from the past 7 months. We will be doing the same thing with the Discord. It will also be rebranded as Skyblocky.​

What servers will there be?
Skyblock! We hope none of you will be disappointed, however Prison, Factions, and Creative don’t have enough players to be included in the rebranding to Skyblocky. In addition, the name Skyblocky implies Skyblock so we’ll stick with that. With this, we hope to focus solely on a Skyblock server and make it as awesome as possible, all of you guys will be crucial in this. We will want to know what content you guys want on Skyblocky so stay tuned for a follow-up announcement regarding suggestions.​

Ranks Transfers
The most important thing you guys are probably worrying about is donator ranks; they will all transfer to the ones below.​
  • Jellybean → VIP​
  • Gumdrop → VIP+​
  • Gummybear → MVP​
  • Licorice → MVP+​
  • Sugarlord → PRO​
  • Candyking → PRO+​
  • CookieMonster → Koala​

Extra Content Transfers
As for extra content:
  • SkySell will transfer.
  • You will be able to receive a Buycraft voucher for the amount of your GKits.
  • Titles/Tags will be completely reset.
  • Those who purchased cosmetics will be able to use cosmetics on Skyblocky.
  • Vote multipliers will transfer, although they will be nerfed,...
Hello!

We all want to be as fair as possible to both the staff and players of Candycraft.
So I'm inviting you all to fill out a survey stating your opinion of each and every staff member (and administration+ too!)

This survey is anonymous, so don't worry; you wouldn't ever be punished for your opinion.
However, make sure to be honest.

The purpose of this is to help improve the staff team.

How does the survey work?

This survey is on Google Forms to try and make it as simple as possible.

Here is a link to the survey:
https://goo.gl/forms/UkcIsTtOFzm85wLJ3

Fill out a response for each staff member on the team. Go from section to section and then click submit, and your opinion will be registered!

Kind Regards,
- Evergreen
Hello!

Here's a fun event for you all, on the new server, Prison2.

From now to February 1st, we'll have an ongoing competition.

The player with the top Prestige by the end of the allotted time will win a $100 Candycraft store gift-card!
This gift-card can be used as many times as you want until the balance runs out, for any item in the store!

Entry is also extremely easy; all you need to do is play and prestige! Though we'd appreciate if you tell your friends to join in too.

How do you Prestige?
Simply mine and /rankup to the "Z" mine. Then, /prestige to get to the next level and start all over again!

Check the top prestige using /leaderboard and clicking the "Prestige" option. Your current prestige level is listed next to your name in chat: [3/B] means that you are Prestige 3 and currently mining in the "B" mine.

Make sure to spread the word; the more players competing the more fun it'll be!

Good Luck!

Hello!

Happy 2018 to everyone!

The Prison 2 release was successful, even though it happened a bit later than planned. I'm happy that most of you are enjoying the new economy.​
As you've probably seen in-game, the first two or three days of Prison will be a sort of "open beta." This means that all players can join and try Prison, however it will still be a beta test and probably will be reset within the next few days. This is to catch any last bugs, and to tweak the economy to come as near to perfection as possible.
Purchasable items will be added to Prison 2 as soon as the beta is over & the server is reset.
|| Remember, if you find bugs, message me about them immediately. ||

I'm also excited to inform you all that we'll have some great content coming up for Prison 2 with the start of the New Year!
If you have something you'd like to see, suggest it HERE!​


Last, but not least, congratulations to the top voters of December!
Your voucher will be given in-game, or via a secure forums account, within the next day.

|| 1st: $50 Store Voucher ||
Caype - 138

|| 2nd: $40 Store Voucher ||
iPug8 - 129

|| 3rd: $30 Store Voucher ||
im_the_dude1 - 128

Votes have now been reset. Make sure to vote for a chance to be a top voter of January!

Kind Regards,

Hello!

I’m excited to announce to you all the newest game-mode revamp:
The Prison Revamp!

:::

||RELEASE DATE||
DECEMBER 31st, 2017
2 PM EST - 7 PM GMT



**Unfortunately, due to timing, there will be no publicly open beta testing. However, if any problems arise, message me immediately and they will be fixed.**



||REMEMBER||
No one will lose ANY of their current stuff. Everything will be put into a legacy server.


:::

The Prison economy has been completely re-designed to last much longer, as well as to have the perfect balance of challenge without becoming too hard.
I'm really excited about this new economy, and I hope you guys will enjoy it as well.

CookieMonster has been designed to have some great perks. Other ranked perks were re-done as well, to match with the economic system.

We’ve also got an entirely new feature, player plots. This will replace the somewhat giltchy housing plugin which we had previously. Plot commands are easy; it will be the same concept as claiming plots in Creative.

Lastly, we've got a highly requested item - a new PvP rank!

Godly [1000 Kills]

/kit godly (14 day cooldown)
- Godly Sword: Sharpness 12, Fire Aspect 10, Unbreaking 10
- Godly Bow: Power 12, Unbreaking 10, Flame 10

/kit godlyonce
- 400 E-Tokens

We'll be trying to update features weekly, maybe even bi-weekly. Don't worry though,...​
Hello!

I've got some great news for you all!

As you know, your in-game account can be synced with your forum account by typing /syncaccount in-game.
But now, you can also sync your forum account to your Discord account on the Candycraft Discord.

Dylan has kindly created a GIF explaining exactly how to sync your forum account to your Discord account:

Over on Discord, we've now got separate text channels for each exclusive rank.
When your account is synced, your profile will have your rank displayed, and you will have access to the channels for and below your rank!

Hope you all enjoy!
Kind Regards,
- Evergreen

Hello!

As Candycraft is expanding, we need to have a larger staff team to make sure our network chat will be moderated at all times, and any rule-breakers will be caught.

I'll cut straight to the point - we're looking for new staff!

Here are some of the qualities we look for in new staff members:

-----+-----
Maturity
Activity
Dedication to Candycraft & knowledge of the community.
You know how to work with a team.
Good understanding of the gamemodes you play.
(Optional) Past staffing experience - though this isn't a must have, it will increase your chances of acceptance to the team. Make sure to include proof of past experience if you have it.
-----+-----

Here are some of our expectations for staff applications:

-----+-----
Lots of detail. For long response questions, a paragraph or more.
Correct grammar & spelling.
A nearly clean history - no punishments in the past 30 days.
-----+-----

Note:
Some of these expectations may be put aside if administration and I feel a player has potential to be a good staff member.
Since we're specifically looking for staff, even if you don't meet every single requirement, you can still try applying.

Interested? View a more detailed guide here.
Apply for staff HERE.

Good luck to all applicants!

UPDATE!
The wait period between applications has been temporarily changed from 30 days to 15 days!
Yo,

Just thought I'd bring you guys a quick fishing update before Christmas just for something extra to do! This update we added a fishing rod along with a fishing rod enchant to the store. Buying either will allow you to randomly catch special items while fishing. These special items include money rewards, spawners, keys, more!

Want to be the first to check it out? Get them here!

Hey guys, It's Dylan here.

Second feature announcement in one day? I must be working extra hard!

Anyways, we've finally readded /syncaccount in game. This will allow having your donator rank on the forums, and if you're staff, you'll receive that too!

How does it work?
It's very simple. Simply type /syncaccount in game and it will bring up a message like this:

After clicking it, you'll be greeted with this nice page:

It's as simple as that! I hope you all enjoy this super cool update.
