    Hey everyone,

    Welcome to update #1. From today onwards, we will be providing you with frequent update posts covering the latest developments on OPBlocks! In this post, I'd like to highlight some of the recent changes that we have made to the network. Let's get started...

    Refineries
    Candy refineries are now available on the server! This feature was originally scheduled to come out right along the server release, however as we were running into some unforeseen issues, we decided to release it when everything was 100% stable. Now, everybody can claim their own refinery and use it to upgrade their candy! To claim one for free, simply type /refinery in the chat and place the item down on your plot. Confirm it, and you are now ready to start upgrading candy!

    Remember that each candy type has four different tiers: raw, refined, tasty and delicious. Raw candies drop from candy farms and cannot be eaten, they must first be upgraded using a refinery! The higher a candy is refined, the stronger the effects are and how longer the candy will last.

    Daily Challenges
    This feature was released over two weeks ago, but I just wanted to give a quick highlight in this post to our new daily challenges. Once you teleport to the spawn, on the right side of the island you should now be able to spot a Daily Challenges NPC. Right clicking this will open a new GUI screen where you can select from 5 different challenges every day that you sign in! The rewards are pretty sweet, and range from money notes to keys, and in some cases even ranks! There are different difficulties available for you to try out, so definitely give it a shot.

    Texture Pack Updates
    We have fixed up the textures in our texture pack, and you will now be asked if you would like to use this feature on server sign-in. Using our custom pack is extremely useful if you are consuming or farming candies, and helps making all of those features properly themed. More information about the pack is provided on the screen you receive after logging in, and we encourage all players to use it.

    New Prestiges
    Some of our players out there appear to be hardcore grinders! As a select few of you have already hit the maximum prestige, we are now adding 10 extra prestiges (prestige 16 to 25). These levels are even more difficult than the others, so a true challenge awaits for those who want to become number 1.

    New MineCrate Rewards
    We have updated the rewards in the MineCrates with some new keys! Now, you will be able to find all 3 types of Crate Keys whilst you are mining: Cookie Cruncher, Choco Chunker and Lollipop Maniac! In addition to this, we have slightly increased the frequency that defines how often MineCrates appear.

    Free World Claiming
    Another new feature which we have added recently, is the ability to claim land if you are a member of our /warp free world. Claiming land is possible by equipping a Golden Shovel, and then right clicking the two corners (of a square) which you would like to claim. Claims are granted by the use of claim blocks, which are automatically accumulated whilst you play. The longer you play, the more claim blocks you will accumulate. There is no limit on the amount of claim blocks which you can receive.

    Economy/Gang Fixes
    We have fixed a recent issue which made it impossible to have a balance that exceeded the amount of 10 Trillion dollars. This resulted in money that was being withdrawn from Gangs to disappear into the abyss. We have also resolved an issue which caused Gangs to disappear randomly after their creation.

    Forum User Registrations
    All forum emails are now being sent out properly again, which caused problems for players trying to sign up for a forum account until recently. If your account still has to be validated, please reach out to an in-game staff member with your username, so they can look into the issue for you.

    Various Other Fixes
    We have issued a variety of other fixes on the server, which you can follow in real time by checking out the #changelog channel in our Discord. If you have not joined our Discord yet, be sure to do so by clicking here. Below is a snippet of the latest changes from the #changelog channel.

    @Affixes you say that challenges has new gui and other stuff but we can't even use the gui (well i can't) I literally go to spawn right click and left click on the npc that says challenges but it doesn't work it keeps telling me "Opening challenges menu" but it never opens. And i also tried opening from /menu and than clicking on challenges and also /challenge and /challenges and i alr restarted my game more than 10+ times and been trying for more than 4+day now and i have been trying to open my challenge menu but it does not work. Please fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @Affixes
