Announcement - MineZ 2021 Changelog
  1. MineZ Team Administrator


    Hello Survivors!

    • Below is a comprehensive list of all of the changes in MineZ for the year 2021. The purpose of this thread is to keep players up-to-date on the changes and rebalancing coming to MineZ. If you are looking for previous changelogs, you can find them linked below.
    • MineZ 2020 Changelog
    06/4/2021 ( 3.12.4 )
    • (Bugfix) Corrected an issue with Player saving during instance transition.
    05/26/2021 ( 3.12.3 )
    • (Bugfix) Fixed a bug where farming beetroot only gave one beet.
    • Moved the "Zombie headshot message" to the action bar, to keep from cluttering a player's chat.
    • Added death messages for players killed by Shivers, Forsaken, Revenants and Scorchers.
    • Added better XP rewards(for a base player) for killing the following zombies:
      • Scorchers - 6 XP
      • Revenants - 6 XP per kill, total of 12 XP
      • Shiver - 30 XP
      • Forsaken - 40 XP
      • Note: These values can be adjusted. If a mob is buffed/nerfed the values could change.
    • (Bugfix) Fixed a bug where chests were not functioning correctly in dungeon instances. This also meant that the gamble did not work properly in instances. These issues should be fixed.
    • Reduced the durability cost for using the Simoon song to 1.
    • (Bugfix) Fixed a bug where some zone names broke the scoreboard. Locations like Devil's Respite should no longer appear as "De".
    • Chimney Sweep now take durability on Launch, instead of land. To avoid disabling this legendary in dungeons, making it always take proper durability per use was imperative.

    • Patched several duping methods related to instances.
    • Added additional logic for admins to help assist players who are disconnected from dungeon runs/better ability to spectate dungeon runs.

    • Iron shovels have received a small rework. Left click a cobweb to instantly break it. There is a cooldown of 10 seconds between breaks. Right click to dig a grave.

    • (Bugfix) Fixed a bug where players could not leave persistent instances.
    • Note from the Team: Instances 2.0 was a major refactor and milestone. There are still some notable bugs remaining and we are working to correct those. Thank you for your patience and please continue to submit discord tickets if you come across any issues.
    • Increased view distance from 4 to 6. Due to the performance increase on the main world thanks to Instances 2.0, we will be monitoring server performance and increasing the render distance.
    • Player Head drops have been changed slightly. They now keep track of the player’s killer, if that killer was another player.
    • Nearly all the giant trees around the map have received rebuilds.
    • The Easter Egg Hunt is complete. All Eggs have been removed. Thank you for participating in the first automated head hunt. In the future, headhunts will be easier to set up, will reward for places(1st-Xth) and give more diverse loot and XP.
    • The Ghost Ship has set sail once again!
    • Flail
      • Updated Lore
      • Made particles play around the wielder, and they change as the wielder gets lower and lower health (to signify Flail will deal more and more damage.)

      • Wither Strike lasts 25s, and will inflict Wither 1 for 5 seconds when hitting a player.
      • 60s Cooldown

      • Decreased Launch velocity
      • Increased cooldown to 30seconds
    • Zerbia Depths
      • The current Blunderbuss will be converted to the “Grapeshot” on login. It maintains the legacy effect. This was done due to the massive overhaul given to the new legendary and the new changes at the end of this dungeon.
      • A new legendary has taken the mantle of “Blunderbuss”.
      • Added two unique consumables to the loot room. These are Zerbia exclusive items.
    • Spring has sprung in a brand new MineZ Lobby courtesy of _frostie!
    04/14/2021 ( 3.10.0)
    • The MineZ Instances Overhaul is live!
      • All dungeon instances are now offloaded to different "Instance" servers. These servers will act as load balancers for the more technical dungeons that impact server performance.
      • When entering a dungeon, players will be transitioned to an instance server after a short delay.
      • Dying in a dungeon will still act as normal. You will be returned to spawn.
      • Leaving a dungeon will still act as normal. You will be placed outside of the dungeon entrance.
      • An instance server will attempt to return you back to your originating server when completing or leaving the dungeon you were in. If this connection cannot be made, you will be returned to the Shotbow Lobby where you can safely log back into MineZ.
      • Multiple instances of the same dungeon can now exist.
    • Party Information
      • A newly created instance will be unlocked for any players to join for one minute. Once this timer elapses, a new instance of the same dungeon will be loaded when entering.
      • Players in a party (/party create) will always be sent to the same dungeon instance to join their team, with no regards to the previously mentioned lockout timer.
      • If at any point, a party member of yours joins your instance with a PVP tag, the instance will become unlocked, so any friend or foe may follow you into the same instance for one minute. This mechanic exists to circumvent using dungeon instances to escape a PVP encounter.
    • Continued Work
      • There are still some extra nice-to-have features you will see added to this new environment over the coming weeks and months. If something doesn't look quite right, or you think a feature is missing, please feel free to let us know.
    04/07/2021 ( 3.9.2 )
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with the prize of the Egg Hunt being given incorrectly.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with Gorgon's Gaze giving more than 5 seconds of slowness. Intensity of the effect has not been changed.
    • Added a 15 second cooldown between uses for the Gorgon's Gaze.
    04/06/2021 ( 3.9.1 )
    • Sirus Alchemical Lab changes:
      • Updated to allow only one player in at a time.

      • The player zombie must spawn above the PVE line to be eligible to drop a head.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where players would lose empty water bottles on logout.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with sharpness books not dealing the correct damage to players.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where diamond & iron axes were not dealing the correct damage to players.

    04/05/2021 ( 3.9.0 )
    • MineZ: Spring Cleaning Update Thread
    • Base sword damage has been buffed and critical hits now do 30% bonus damage instead of 50%:
      • Critical hits often did too much damage (2+ hearts), especially when a player isn’t wearing a full iron. This change will ensure there’s no more unexpected death caused by critical hits while keeping the overall damage high enough to the point where you can quickdrop players.
    • Heal Bow Changes:
      • Heals 3 hearts.
      • Consumes 2 arrows and 2 durability.

      • The head hunt will run for at least a week but may go longer.
      • Each egg grants XP and winners receive a special gift!
    • The Ghost Ship has set sail once again!
    • (BUGFIX) Giants and Golems no longer use their abilities after death.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Axis books did not do critical hit damage.
    • (BUGFIX) Speed potions now override any speed I potion effect. For example, drinking a speed potion after drinking Manzana Cider will no longer cancel out the speed potion’s speed II effect.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Eillom Ale and Manzana Cider had ‘No Effect’ in their lore.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Abandoned Farm’s zone would stop working.

    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Wizard Tower’s cauldron items could be removed from the dungeon.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with potion serialization, allowing us to now make colored potions/custom potions.
    03/31/2021 ( 3.8.3 )
    03/21/2021 ( 3.8.2 )
    • Reworked the decision tree for zombie spawns. This is the process that chooses whether a zombie, villager zombie, pigman, Revenant or Forsaken is chosen. This new decision process takes weights into account, favoring zombies first. This should cut down on boss spawns that have been plaguing fights. We are currently looking into creating areas where bosses spawn more frequently, similar to the other unique zombies. Stay tuned.
    • Reduced zombie speed across the map. All zombies are now consistently one speed. This makes it possible to outrun hordes again. This also shortens zombies long arms, meaning players with higher ping will have a better chance at hitting zombies before they hit you.
    • Removed the maze from Grimdale's Thieves' Guild.
    • Replaced Axis Mundi's in-world exit with a zone teleport system to stop ILLEGAL access.
    • Added a hole in Byesford's west wall.
    • Increased the interval between mob spawns. As mentioned in 3.8.1 the team is working to retrofit the spawning algorithm and is carefully adjusting the new spawn system to accommodate all players.
    • Added a check to make sure that a Shiver has lost health before using the ranged attack.
    • Increased the radius of what the mob spawning algorithm considers to be a group to 40 blocks, reducing overall spawns for large groups which are spread out in an area (like Crowmure).
    • The Ghost Ship has set sail once again!
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where chests were spawning one fewer item than their max. Places like Agni Ignis which have routinely been spawning one item should now feel much better.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue within Devil's Respite. Magma blocks were boiling away water, creating a near impossible drop.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with iron ingots and blocks overflowing disabilities.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where drinking Manzana Cider after eating a golden apple doesn't apply absorption hearts.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with the Wind Spire instance causing inventory rollback.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where zombies could spawn right on top of a player in groups. Zombies will now spawn at least ten blocks away.
    • The team is hard at work on multiple large updates. Recently a PTR was launched to test the new instance system, which should greatly improve server performance when it is rolled to live. We gathered a great amount of data on it and are currently putting the finishing touches on this system.
    03/03/2021 ( 3.8.1 )
    • Reduced Chance for Revenants, Forsaken and Husks.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed Iron Ingot Crafting Issues
    • Fixed an issue with zombies spawning on Snow.
    • Increased interval between mob spawns.
    • Slightly Lowered the amount of cows that can spawn at a farm.
    With the new spawning system, small adjustments will be made over the next few rollouts. We're analyzing how it is working in relation to group sizes and adjusting accordingly.

    03/02/2021 ( 3.8.0 )
    • Optimized tips for server performance.
    • Optimized chest spawning, increasing server performance.
    • Changed reboot cycles from every 12 hours to every 7 (this does not include the hour warning).
    • Reworked zombie and animal spawning:
      • Increased the time between zombies spawning.
      • Lowered the base limit of zombies that can spawn per group.
      • Zombies will now spawn by groups of players instead of per players. A group is defined as any players within 30 blocks of each other. This dynamically grows, meaning if player A and B are 20 blocks apart but player C is 15 blocks away from B (meaning further then 30 blocks away from player A), the group will grow. This will have a big impact on group fights, meaning that each player is not spawning mobs, but the groups are. There is a depreciating amount of zombies that will spawn, which is dependent on the group size. As a rough example, with the old spawn algorithm the maximum amount of zombies was equal to 3 * every player. It is now much less than that.
      • (BUGFIX) Fixed several errors with locational checks. Spawns are now more accurate, meaning that the chances of a zombie spawning are higher.
      • Villager Zombie Changes:
        • Spawn chances have been reduced.
        • Movement speed is now 10% slower.
        • Max item drop reduced to 2.
      • Cow spawning has been adjusted to allow for them to spawn outside of farm zones. A player must be at a farm to trigger the spawn, though.
      • (BUGFIX) Wolves no longer spawn outside of the snow biome.
    • Strength and weakness potion effects now work correctly.
      • Strength increases damage by 10% per level and weakness decreases damage by 10% per level.
    • Overkill now uses weakness potion effects instead of static damage reduction after using the active ability.
    • (BUGFIX) Sugar now overrides any speed I potion effect. For example, consuming sugar after drinking Manzana Cider will no longer cancel out sugar’s speed II effect.
    • Increased Hunger effect for Pluvia’s Storm and Pluvia’s Rain. They will do a more noticeable hunger debuff to players.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Earth Shaker’s ability launched players on PvE.
    • Added a glowing effect for Giant and Golem drops.
    • Messages related to thirst, bandaging and milk have been converted to use the action bar.
    • Players drawing aggro outside of wave rooms in Anemos Sanctum and Frostbain Catacombs have been tweaked. Zombies must have line of sight in these dungeons (only) to aggro.
    • Replaced slime blocks in Devil's Respite with half water.
    • Shiver Changes:
      • Shivers now only drop one item (either 3x snowballs or Frostwalker Boots)
      • Max health was increased.
      • Will now use their ranged attack more often.
    • Frostwalker Changes:
      • Now drop at lower durabilities from Shivers.
      • Effect duration reduced by 5 seconds (10 seconds total now).
      • Added the ability to repair Frostwalker Boots with Iron Ingots.
    02/21/2021 ( 3.7.19 )
    • Added Shivers.
      • They are an icy zombie you can find in the Snow and Ice biomes.
      • They spawn north of Ravine.
      • They will drop something quite nice!
      • Be careful not to get Frostbite!
    • Cow Changes
      • Will now spawn more frequently around farms.
      • Will spawn less frequently in the wild.
      • Cows now drop raw beef.
      • Cows do not spawn south of the PVE line.
      • (BUGFIX) Leather drops will now properly stack with other leather.
      • (BUGFIX) Cows will now no longer rarely crash servers when getting aggressive.
    • Expanded Zombies:
      • Designated towns and notable locations will now begin to spawn villager zombies which drop loot!
      • Villager zombies come in a wide variety of flavors, and they each have their own unique loot drops.
      • This addition should provide players with the ability to gather loot from somewhere else besides chests.
    • Carmi Sewers Changes:
      • The dungeon is now more linear, with it being easier to follow where to go.
      • Lily pads have been added throughout the dungeon.
    • Krubera Vault Changes:
      • The Giant wave room has been revamped. It now no longer has zombie spawners, and instead will spawn a Rampaging Golem in its place.
      • The Rampaging Golem will drop loot!
    • Cooking Food:
      • You can now cook raw food!
      • Currently, you can cook Raw Beef and Raw Fish & Salmon by throwing them into a fire!
    • Falling into Ravine will now no longer kill you. You will be teleported onto the outside of the ravine, taking 4 hearts of true damage.
    • The sidebar and tablist has been adjusted to better follow the network-wide style.
    • Reduced Zombie Spawnrate around Crowmure & Crowmure farm.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where brewed potions would not have proper lore text.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where bowls that had been eaten from would not have proper lore text (and not stack).
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where disabling the Date in the sidebar would display an empty line.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where players could craft multiple bags and carry them.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an exploit where players could spawn any boss or creature into the game with an admin command. We know you found this.
    • The Ghost Ship has set sail once again!
    01/31/2021 ( 3.7.18 )
    • Moved a pigman spawner in Paluster Shrine further away from the door past the Root Room and before the Ice Chamber
    • Slightly increased bow damage to players: Bows are currently out of the combat meta and barely used. This change will make bows more viable to use in fights while not making them dominate PvP.
    • Removed snow layers from Jacsebalon’s head in Crymoore Pond to prevent anti-cheat rubber-banding
    • Fixed a bug where cows could crash the server

    Is there any possibility of having proficiencies/crafting added to mineZ? I kinda miss it, and having something to work towards in game instead of just start, get gear, go north, get more gear, go more north, get more gear, learn a little bit, die, restart
