We have completely redesigned our hub, it is now much simpler, contains some cool images, and overall more friendly for all players. We want to take the time to explain the reasoning behind this!
Looking at the data, we noticed that a great deal of players actually don’t completely understand the concept of a hub. They walk around, and get lost, and don’t understand the item in the middle, despite the messages. Some players clicked on the house points NPCs, expecting something but got confused. Others played minigames, lost because they don’t fully understand it, left and never came back.
Most of our players walked around the hub to explore once, and then that was that. This huge world only became a one time thing that players noticed. Decorating it for seasonal things, like Winter, Halloween, etc. became a huge time consuming task.
This new hub has a space dedicated for the logo of the server, seasonal store advertisements, and a map of the world behind from where you spawn. It only contains one NPC, and that’s it.
We completely understand if you find this new hub a bit less cool, but it was designed to be a simple area that would act as a gateway. We will look into adding a parkour (or maybe enabling the old one) if we ever maintenance again for a long period.
We hope you enjoy this change! Thanks for reading everyone. We hope that you guys enjoy the rest of the year, and remember to continue to stay safe.
