    Hey everyone!

    Welcome to the fourth potato news!

    I hope everyone likes the new additions that we've made over the last couple of weeks, if anyone has any questions please feel free to post them on this thread.



    New Town

    We have decided to add an official server owned town to PotatoMC.
    We called this town Bradford. You can go to the new town by typing /warp bradford in-game.

    In this town, you can rent houses, mansions and hotel rooms. Below are the prices per day/week.
    • Hotel Room | $5,000/day
    • House | $10,000/day
    • Mansion | $200,000/week
    Once you rent something in the town, you can build and edit the inside any way you want!
    If this town gets fully rented out, we may add more in the future.



    Mob Catching

    You are now able to catch mobs! It's very simple, all you need to do is throw an egg at practically any mob. Each egg you throw has a 10% chance of catching it.

    Once you successfully capture the mob, a spawn egg for that mob will be dropped on the ground.
    This addition is helpful if you are trying to transport mobs, sell mobs, or trade mobs to other players.

    Please note that certain mobs are not capturable, like Withers, Wither Skeletons, Ghasts, etc..

    We have also added Eggs to the Miscellaneous category on /shop for $10,000 per 16.



    New Commands

    Two new commands were added to the commands category on the store.
    These commands are /block and /smelt.

    /smelt will automatically smelt any ores and uncooked food you have in your inventory.
    Example: If you had 16 Iron Ore in your inventory and did /smelt, you would get 16 Iron Ingot.

    /block will automatically turn any ingots that are in your inventory into blocks.
    Example: If you had 27 Diamond in your inventory and did /block, you would get 3 Diamond Blocks.

    With the 50% off sale that we are running, these commands are $7.50 at the moment.



    Slot Machines

    There is now a physical casino located in the spawn!

    You can gamble your in-game money with slot machines located at /warp slots.
    There are currently 5 slot machines in the casino, with the following bet sizes:
    • $5,000 a spin
    • $25,000 a spin
    • $100,000 a spin
    • $250,000 a spin
    • $1,000,000 a spin
    You can use /paytable in-game to see how much you can win!



    Money Pouches

    You used to be able to purchase specific amounts of money from the store, but we have decided to replace that system with Money Pouches.

    Money Pouches are tiered pouches that give you a random amount of money within a given range depending on the tier you purchase.

    • Tier 1 | $50,000 to $150,000
    • Tier 2 | $250,000 to $500,000
    • Tier 3 | $500,000 to $2,000,000
    • Tier 4 | $1,000,000 to $4,000,000
    You can purchase Money Pouches under the other category on our store.



    Other
    • There is now a 25% chance of a players head dropping when you kill them.
    • There is now a 5% chance of a mobs head dropping when you kill it.
    • The prices of mob spawners on the store have been lowered.
    • You can now join the server with the 1.12.1 minecraft version.
    • @KFC_boxmeal has been promoted to Moderator.
    • @SystemZeroGHG has been promoted to Helper.
    • @austinsplaneguy has been promoted to Helper.
    • @oootopia has resigned.

    I hope everyone likes these updates! Thanks for reading :D

    I think that this update is wonderful
    I love how heads are so easy to obtain and collect its like a trophy wall :D
    Mob heads are also really neat, although i think they should be a little more common like 10%
    The slots are a nice addition to take some money away from the insanely rich people (cough cough ThePreset Blef and KFC_Boxmeal) but they are far too rigged. I wasted a million on the $5k one and i only won once, it being a refund. Amazing you should up the probability of winning, as I saw you blow through 30mil and win only twice.

    Congratulations on KFC_Boxmeal for making Mod but its too bad that oootopia quit, he will be missed

    Keep the Amazingness up and can't wait for the new update :D

    The eggs idea is great! Thank you. Although I was wondering if there was a build team for this server, I know I asked this a month or so ago but it came to mind when I realized I had seen the town Bradford's architecture on other server and I thought "Why didn't a build team make a custom town?"

    The town was used on one of @trkey's other servers, but is no longer in use. So i thought I might as well use it on here.
    It was built by a professional build team sometime last year.

    Okay thanks, I had a suspicion that was the case but I wasn't 100% sure.

    I'm sad to see that oootopia resigned. She was off to such a great start in her staffing experience. Other than that great news and I can't wait until the next news!

    I think The eggs are a really good idea for moving your house or temporarily making a shelter! But overall good updates, and keep improving!
