    Hello community!
    I'm glad to announce a feature that has been on the list for many months now, and highly requested. We initially had gangs back in 1.0 however due to many exploits such as depositing money for prestiging, the system was removed. Over the past weeks we have been working with the developer of our older plugin, and the outcome; a custom fork of the plugin designed for Union MC.
    This custom fork carries over the main features from our old implementation, however now is no longer tied to in-game money (a changing economy).
    While everyone wants to own a Gang, we encourage users to work together instead of everyone having a separate gang. For this, we've added a hefty creation price of $325 billion in order to create a gang. This may change as our economy evolves (this is the only tie gangs have with in-game $).

    Gang Coins
    A new currency named Gang Coins (or Gang Tokens) has been added which is the core currency of running a gang. Any gang member can find these coins through Mine Crates, voting and Supply Crates, and have the coins automatically deposited to the gang's bank. We will continue to add more ways of obtaining this currency.
    If a user finds a Gang Coin and they are not in a Gang, simply nothing will happen. This coin will NOT be queued while the plugin waits for a player to join a gang.
    The more members you have in your gang, the more prestigeous your gang shall become.

    Gang Levelling
    Gangs are leveled based on how many fights [see Gang Fights] they win. The max level is 10. The values are follows (-> TO level):
    • 2: 3 wins
    • 3: 10 wins
    • 4: 20 wins
    • 5: 30 wins
    • 6: 50 wins
    • 7: 75 wins
    • 8: 100 wins
    • 9: 150 wins
    • 10: 200 wins
    Gang levels allow the gang to access more items in the Gang Shop [see Gang Shop] and be ranked higher on /g top.

    Gang Shop
    Of course there's a use for this new currency. Use /gang shop to access the Gang Shop menu.
    The Gang Shop allows Gang Captains [see Gang Ranks] to upgrade the gang. Any gang member can view the Gang's current purchases & what the gang aims to purchase next.
    Gang upgrades cost Gang Coins, however some packages require your gang to be a certain level, or have a previous upgrade already unlocked.
    The current available upgrades are as follows:
    Toggle Friendly Fire:
    • Switch off/on Friendly Fire for your gang (enabled by default)
    • Cost: 10 Coins
    • Required Level: 1
    • Required Packages: none
    Up to 8 Gang Members:
    • Allow your gang to have a total of 8 members. This will allow you to participate in fights [see Gang Fights] with more members, and earn more coins.
    • Cost: 50 Coins
    • Required Level: 2
    • Required Packages: none
    Up to 12 Gang Members:
    • Cost: 100 Coins
    • Required Level: 4
    • Required Packages: "Up to 8 Gang Members"
    Set 3 homes:
    • Set up to 3 homes (/g home <home>) for your gang.
    • Cost: 75 Coins
    • Required Level: 3
    • Required Packages: none
    Set 5 homes:
    • Cost: 100 Coins
    • Required Level: 5
    • Required Packages: "Set 3 homes"
    Hold 250 Coins:
    • By default, gang balances are capped at 100 coins. Upgrade this to hold 250.
    • Cost: 25 Coins
    • Required Level: 2
    • Required Packages: none
    Hold 1000 Coins:
    • Cost: 150 Coins
    • Required Level: 5
    • Required Packages: "Hold 250 Coins"
    Tag Colors:
    You can change the way your gang tag appears in chat when members talk. Select a tag color!
    Green (a):
    Cost: 40 Coins
    Required Level: 4
    Yellow (e):
    Cost: 40 Coins
    Required Level: 4
    Dark Aqua (3):
    Cost: 40 Coins
    Required Level: 4
    Gold (6):
    Cost: 100 Coins
    Required Level: 7
    Light Purple (d):
    Cost: 100 Coins
    Required Level: 7
    Aqua (b):
    Cost: 100 Coins
    Required Level: 7
    Red (c):
    Cost: 500 Coins
    Required Level: 10

    Gang Ranks/Hierarchy:
    Gangs have a hierarchy of 5 different positions. Their names & permissions are as follows:
    - Member:
    • Join a fight [see Gang Fights], leave a fight, obtain Gang Coins for the gang, visit & list gang homes, leave the gang, view /g shop
    - Trustee
    • All Member permissions & use /gang regroup (Requests the gang members to meet at a home)
    - Officer
    • All Trustee permissions & gang relationships (ally/neutral), invite new members, uninvite pending members
    - Captain
    • All Officer permissions & fight management (accept & challenge gangs to fights), set + delete gang homes, toggle friendly fire (if purchased), buy items from /g shop
    - Leader
    • All Officer permissions & promote members, demote members, kick members, disband the gang
    To promote/demote users, simply use /g promote or /g demote

    Gang Fights:
    Gangs can challenge other gangs to a gang fight. To do this, a Gang Captain must run:
    /fight challenge <# of players> <coin stake> <gang>
    The # of players will determine how large the fight shall be (e.g. 1v1, 6v6, 10v10 etc) The cap is 10.
    Coin stake will determine how many Gang Coins will be won/lost. Winner takes all. (Minimum 10, Maximum 1000)
    A Captain in the Challenged gang must use /fight accept <challenger gang>
    Members of both gangs should run /fight join in order to be teleported to the arena.
    Note:
    • You will not lose your inventory in gang fights.
    • You can use your own items.
    • The server can only handle up to 4 fights at a time. Wait for one to finish if this is maxed.
    • Fights will last up to 15 minutes. If no one wins, the fight will end in a draw.

    Gang Defaults:
    These are the default values for when a gang is created. They can be changed by buying packages from the gang shop (/g shop).
    • Friendly fire: on
    • Gang member cap: 5
    • Gang home cap: 1
    • Gang coin cap: 100

    For more help on gangs, simply use /g help to list all possible commands.

    Store Stuff
    We will be running an 85% (highest % yet this reset) off sale for the weekend only!
    Additionally, you can save $5 off an Apollo Pickaxe and $10 off a Zeus pickaxe!
    https://store.unionmc.net

    We've also added Colored Rename Tokens at a fixed price of $10.
    With these, you'll be able to rename your pickaxe with color codes! They'll be applied once you take them out of the Anvil GUI popup.
    Note: Use of &k is blocked.

    Rule Change
    It has been evident scamming has become a "go-to solution" for earning large amounts of cash fast. Due to the fact that we appeal to a large age-group of players, we only think its right to reverse this rule change, disallowing any kind of scamming.
    Please remove any scamming chestshops or deal arrangements you have set up. From now on we'll be enforcing a 3 day ban on first-time scams, 1 week ban on second occurrence and so on.
    I am going to clearly state that scammed users will not be reimbursed the items lost, only the scammer will be punished. This is simply because scams are so hard to moderate & reverse when our staff team doesn't have access to the full range of commands needed.
    Feel free to ask a staff member to "middleman" your trades.


    Congrats, you made it to the end of this absolutely massive thread.
    We hope you enjoy the updates!

    So since scams wont be recovered since staff dont have commands to see the item/items being scammed will video proof of the item being scammed help us get it back?

    Depends.
    It would help but lower staff don't have the ability to take it away from the scammer.

    I don't have video proof, but I have many witnesses of me losing 801b. I believe you were in TS when it happened.
