Hello everyone! Let's open this thread with our primary news: Vice Season 2 Very Soon, check #vice-s2 on Discord for updates Ranks Only Private Beta first! We have been working hard on this for a good couple of months now, and Season 2 is going to see some very big new additions to the server. Details about the end of Season 1, and everything that goes along with it will be in a separate thread much closer to the release of Season 2, so don't worry if this thread is missing any information. It is merely a teaser to showcase some of the stuff we've been working on for Season 2! Today, we would just like to briefly talk about two major new features coming up in Vice. Please note that everything we're now going to speak about is still heavily WIP (Work In Progress). New Drugs System Drugs is obviously one of the core aspects for Vice. For the new season, we wanted to really improve the system to make drugs, and the economy behind it. You will now find the starting ingredients (such as various seeds) throughout the wilderness, and in various events. In fact, you could become rich just by searching for rare seeds and selling them onto players! After that, you will then have to purchase various machines to do different things, depending on what sort of drug you're making (maybe you need to dry the plant, or process it). Below is a screenshot of an example machine that we have. No mods required. We don't want to spoil too much with this new system, but it's pretty cool. Bigger focus on exploration, and a lot more progression required to reach the more expensive drugs. All machines work with redstone automation as well, so you can get mega custom farms going. Custom Terrain We wanted Season 2 to have a large element of exploration. The reason for exploring is primarily the new drugs, but we also wanted to make exploring fun. This is why we decided to also have entirely custom generated terrain. As such, Season 2 will feature over 24 different, custom biomes. Our custom seeds can only be found on a number of these - for example you will need to go to warmer places to locate Marijuana Seeds. On top of this, there will also be ruined settlements (villages and towns) strewn across the world, where epic showdown events can occur for rare loot. Going Forward Looking beyond Season 2 launch, we have lots of awesome plans for Vice. Every time there's a new Season, we will look at overhauling, or adding a major new mechanic (for example the new drugs system), to improve and grow the server. During mid-season, you can expect to also see a couple of smaller content additions and bugfixes as we polish and improve the gamemode. We hope you're as excited as we are to see Vice Season 2 out. Hold onto your pants, shits about to get hairy!
