Factions is going to be reset on July 1st! And we're bringing back a classic CubeBuilders spawn for those who are thirsty for some nostalgia!
In addition, we're also adding 1.8-style PvP to Factions as part of the reset, and classic pre-1.9 god apples. (We're testing it out in Minigames FFA PvP, you can go try it out there!) There will also be no more chorus fruits in Factions, since it kind of ruined Factions a lot.
In other news, I'm developing a new minigame system called MinigameKit. MinigameKit will bring a better minigame experience, much like on a game console. You'll be able to host and join parties with your friends, so you'll stick together automatically instead of having to manually follow them around. It'll also allow you to customize settings for each minigame session, so for example you can choose how many points is needed to win Quake (or even no limit, so it just goes on until the host decides to end the game), or if TNT is enabled in Splurge.
MinigameKit also allows any developer to create minigames for MinigameKit or make existing minigames compatible with MinigameKit. You can see a preview of the MinigameKit API at the MinigameKit page. I also plan to release MinigameKit for other servers to use at some point in the future, but for now it's going to be a CubeBuilders-only thing.
P.S. I used to have a 5-star karma rating - whoever Karma--'d me, you're in for some trouble! Always Karma++ me, or else!
