UPDATE: Alright so Achlys has been MIA all last week and nothing was completed for Halloween :(
HOWEVER, Phanes has stepped up and is making some games for us, so we'll plan for this coming weekend to have the festivities / costume contest. I apologize for this!
Event Day: Saturday, Nov 4th. (Nov 5th for Australians)
Event Time: 5PM PST - 8PM EST - 11PM GMT - 8 & 10AM Aussie Time (I think that's 8AM for Phanes?)
Yep! This time we're giving our Aussie folks a chance to participate, given that Phanes is an upside-downer as well; sorry Euro players!
So we've gotten the permissions set for the disguises, which is good. That means those of you whose disguise is part of your rank should now be able to use them! Those who have donated for any of the actual Disguise Packs will need to take a further step in order for their's to work, therefore anyone who has donated for them will receive a mail message in-game [you'll receive a notification in game when you log in that says "You have # unread mail messages"; to read them use: /mail read]. In the message will be a coupon code for 100% off the specific disguise package that you had previously purchased, will only be redeemable for your minecraft account (it is uniquely tied to your UUID, so giving it away won't be of use to anyone else ), and is redeemable only one time. Yes, I have taken every precaution here because I know how you kiddos think! lol
It's an extra step and I apologize for that, but it is a lot easier and safer than the alternative.
IN ADDITION TO THAT there were some changes to the disguise packs! Some prices were lowered on the originals which also received some new disguises for each (for example, off hand the Animals were given the Pig with Saddle, and Monsters were given the Wither Skeleton). I've also created two new packs that include a bunch of the new mobs!
- A new Animal pack which includes Rabbits (every kind), Llamas, Polar Bears, the ability to become Baby of each, AND the Parrot for whenever we update to 1.12.
- A new Monster pack which includes the Husk zombie, Stray skeleton, Vex, Vindicator, Evoker, AND Illusioner for when we update to 1.12
Furthermore, if you guys and gals really would like, I can also add a Villagers pack which would give you a disguise for every profession as well as the Zombie Villager. Let me know in game when you see me if you are interested in it.
These packs have gone up just in time for... the spooktacular Halloween Sale! The sale will run for two weeks, from this coming Saturday Oct 21st until Saturday Nov 4th and packs will be discounted at 25% or 31% off!
Lastly, Achlys is whipping up a special event for you guys. In addition to that I'm hoping to be able to hold a Costume Contest which will have its own prize, likely Store Points as is our tradition. While we sadly won't have the traditional build competition (haven't been able to do a Pumpkin Carve since Mojang decided to screw that up in 1.8 by removing my face-less Jack O' Lantern block ), I'm hopeful you all will still have a fun time. I don't know yet when Achlys is planning to have her event, but let me know when you'd like the costume contest to be. If you'd like it on the same day as her's, that's fine. If you'd rather it be on another day, that's also fine! Halloween Day is on a Tuesday this year, so depending on what sort of parties people plan to have in real life on the weekend before it, we could conceivably have it then.
In the meantime, try to find out what your plans are and let us know!
