7-Dec-2020: Release 1.03

The Drustcraft server will be under maintenance between 7pm Monday 7th December for 2 hours for the upgrade to release 1.03.

This update will fix a ton of bugs and bring the following changes to players:

  • New online Web portal

  • Quests:

    • Quests are now book items that need to be dragged to your inventory to be accepted

    • You can read the book at anytime to see your status of the quest

    • Abandoning a quest is as simple as throwing it out of your inventory

    • When a quest requires you to give items to an NPC, you are required to actually give them by holding it in your hand and right clicking on the NPC

  • Shopkeepers:

    • Now use a trade window insterad of an inventory view. This should solve most of the issues with tablet players previously experienced

  • Money:

    • No longer exists in Drustcraft and trading is now a 100% barter system (well Emeralds will be a main form of currency)

  • Plots:

    • Chests on plots can only be opened by the plot owner

    • Plots ownership is by having a corrosponding plot deed. If you drop the deed and someone else picks it up, that plot is now owned by that player

    • Players who do not log into the game for 45 days will lose their plot and the plots contents

  • Withers/Portals

    • The previous Wither NPCs have been renamed to Jaddu and had a change of skin. This is to not conflict with the Minecraft built-in Withers.

    • The previous Wither portals which looked like Nether portals have been changed to not conflict with the look of Nether portals

    • Some new portals have been created

  • Arenas

    • 3 new arenas are now live

  • Creative Areas

    • A new creative area Jord exists

  • Expansion

    • The world map has been expanded and we have opened up Nether and The End!
