Caves & Cliffs Update Coming To FoxelBox
Hello FoxelBox! 
This post will mostly mirror the announcement in Discord but will include some additional information. We will be leaving this thread open for any questions.

We hope the holidays were wonderful for you and yours, and we figure what better way to greet the new year than to announce we are officially updating to Caves & Cliffs (1.18.1) on January 15, 2022.

As with every major update that significantly changes terrain generation, our map will be updated. We recommend marking the build you want to save, and putting a message in the new schematics channel on Discord with its coordinates so a member of staff can save your build (limitations apply, more information is posted in the schematics channel)

In the following two weeks from this message, we have begun setting up the new map as Jawa continues to iron out plugins and permissions. If there is anything you all would like to see in the new server spawn/hub, please let us know in the Minecraft Discord channel!

New features and changes:

Feature Changes

New map generation: Terralith 2.0!
  • Because we are resetting the map due to major terrain generation changes in Caves & Cliffs, we are using the data pack Terralith 2.0.
  • This data pack hosts some incredible custom biomes and terrain generation that compliment the new build height and depths well.
  • Check out their page on Curse Forge to preview what the new generation looks like!
Changes to: The Guest Region
  • The Guest region is no longer a part of the main map and is hosted in its own world separate from the main map.
  • Players of any rank are now able to play in the Guest region (locked to survival).
    - We want members of the server who invite their friends to play together.

    - We understand being a guest for a trial period before getting to play together can be frustrating and ultimately defeat the purpose of inviting them on our server.
  • Like with the old Guest region; lava/obsidian are removed entirely and players cannot access the Nether or End dimensions.
    - This is to prevent extreme grief such as lava casting.
Changes to: Homes
  • Homes are now limited per rank.
  • Changes not finalized, limits TBD.
Ranking Changes

New rank: Super Builder!
  • Super Builder has replaced Advanced Builder as the creative-enabled rank. 
Changes to: Advanced Builder
  • The Advanced Builder rank is now survival-only. 
  • We are adding new features to the rank that separate it from Builder.
    - Survival Fly (/sfly)
    - Walk Speed/Fly Speed (/speed <#>)
    - Personal Time/Weather (/ptime, /pweather)
    - Fullbright (/fullbright)

  • All features are available with every rank beyond Advanced Builder
Additional information to rank changes:
  • Existing Advanced Builders will be given the choice to remain in their current rank or be promoted immediately to Super Builder.
  • Adding a new tier to the hierarchy can seem daunting but rest assured, this does not mean getting creative will be more difficult.
  • In an effort to smooth out the progression from Builder to Architect, we have balanced the ranks so there are 2 survival and 2 creative ranks. 
  • We have also tweaked the approval of rank applications to be more uniform. 
As always, we're excited to see every one of you with the new update! We hope that 2022 can be a year of growth for our community and that these changes will lend themselves to new and old members alike. We are open to suggestions and concerns. This will be a large transition however, we aim to make this as painless as possible.

This thread will be updated periodically with additional changes as some changes are not finalized. The changelog will be in the thread below.
This document may be modified, restated, and/or amended at any time at the discretion of the Senior Management of FoxelBox or its owners.
