Voting Rewards Changes

I don’t know about you, but I now have an entire overflow chest just for golden carrots. I’ve made some changes to voting rewards to keep it interesting and profitable.

I get to make changes like these because Sollybird took the time to abstract rewards into a configuration file. Don’t worry too much about what that means. The upshot is that I can edit a plain text file and add rewards any time I want without bothering Solly. We can jigger the probability of any particular reward showing up. The changes to rewards can take effect without rebooting the server.

Here’s what I added:

  • All types of coral blocks. Coral is non-renewable (though you can buy it from /shop for lots of money). What do you do with coral blocks? If you don’t want to build a pretty aquarium and don’t need the money you’d get from selling them right away, hold onto them. Ocean altars request coral blocks. If you don’t have an ocean altar, you can always sell the blocks to someone who does for more than you’d get from /shop.
  • Packed ice. You can get it yourself, but it’s tedious, and you need a lot of packed ice for a nether road.

Got an idea for a voting reward? Let us know on Discord.
