    It's October, and that means it's fall season, and that means it's spooky scary skeleton time. We're starting the month off with letting you know we've got some fall season updates ahead of us. So keep an eye on the changelog. And now that it's October we're letting you know we have some spooky stuff events ready to roll out.

    BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS : READ THE THREAD

    What is happening in October?

    One day you might sleep in your bed and get woken up by spooky bats! Thankfully they don't harm you, but, .. post a screenshot of one in this thread and you might get a surprise!

    Oh, if you change your skin to a Halloween themed skin, post a screenshot, we might also have a surprise for you. I've already changed mine.

    And this won't be all. Maybe with enough players online we will have a 5x boost event, or play a few rounds of extra special /run games. Halloween spooky themed Spleef maybe? Who knows, we might just install a temporary mini-game if we hit another dozen active players this month.

    More and more danger will happen in the worlds as well. The Summer /spawn will get an update for a more autumn feel. Slowly turning it into Winter. More scary mobs might appear. Maybe even tough to to beat mobs that you've never seen on the server before.

    At the end of the month we will have a long Halloween weekend, with drop parties, another 5x booster day, and of course we cannot leave out ghost hunting and trick/treating.

    Sign up on the forums if you haven't already, so you can subscribe to this thread and never miss out up updates.

    What is happening in October? (Week 1 Update)
    (List updates almost daily)

    - Halloween Dimension
    End of month the Halloween dimension will open to everybody. Major loot to get.

    - Spooky Bats
    They can wake you up once in a while during October. Can you catch the spooky bats?
    These bats won't hurt you, but some bats this month might change to witches when you Hit them.

    - mcMMO Events
    Various times in October we will have 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x mcMMO boosters.

    - Jobs Events
    Various times in October we will have 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x Jobs boosters.

    - Halloween Dimension: Secret Sign 1
    One of two secret signs that gets you special loot, can you find it?

    - Halloween Dimension: Secret Sign 2
    The other secret sign in this dimension, it has a special stick! Available end of monh.

    - Post your Halloween themed skin
    You have to post your screenshot in this thread to be eligible. When you do, you get a little surprise nobody else gets early November.

    - Special /run Game
    Either me (mrfloris) or roberto (1mbnetwork) will host a few special rounds of Spooky month /RUN game. The prizes are ridiculous! I hope you win. (Most likely in the Weekends) (Requires 5 players)

    - Special Spleef Game
    Either me or Roberto will have a few rounds of Spleef where players have to break the floor, and the last one standing gets a special Spooky month prize. (Most likely on week days) (Requires 5 players)

    - Spawn Update
    When you travel to /spawn, you might notice it's not midday, but dusk, and might start raining, and maybe some Halloween Mobs can be found. They show up randomly at /spawn. And might drop special loot. With enough people at spawn, they start spawning in /mine and /general as well.

    - Drop Party
    Headsup! When we have 8+ people online we might spontaneously have a boss fight and then a drop party. And if we have 10+ people online we will announce a drop party to everybody. And yes, someone might end up with an angry mob spawner.

    - Ghost Hunting
    If you have access to the Halloween Dimension at the end of the month, you will find special Ghost Hunting heads. Collect them all for some special loot boxes! More details will follow.

    - Trick and Treating
    When Halloween Dimension is open, a lot of apartments and rooms, houses and huts with NPC that give you loot. Details will follow as we get closer to the end of the month.

    - Pumpkin Head
    Starting October 5th, if you aren't wearing a helmet, you might suddenly get a pumpkin on your head to give you a startle. For now, only during the nightly hours.

    - Spooky Blocks
    Starting October 5th, you might notice when you place blocks there's a spooky Halloween effect.

    - Spooky Pumpkins
    Starting October 5th, you might notice pumpkins behaving ... differently. <shifty eyes>

    - Pumpkin Mobs
    Starting October 5th, you will notice at night that there will be pumpkins on the head of Mobs. In the coming days this will happen during the daytime, and rumor has it there's special Halloween Mobs coming! Wear your armor!

    Screenshot 2020-10-06 at 11.52.15.png

    - Build Competition
    Starting October 6th, we will announce a Spooky Month Build Competition. Check back in tomorrow.

    - Halloween Jockeys
    Starting October 6th, you might find Halloween Jockeys in the world. Be careful, they're pretty quick!
    Screenshot 2020-10-06 at 11.37.01.png
    - Magic Bats
    Starting October 6th, bats that spawn will say Hit me! But it's probably a trick, there's some magic involved with them. There's a chance they morph into a Witch
    Screenshot 2020-10-06 at 11.44.13.png
    - Magic Witch
    Starting October 6th, witches use their magic sometimes to escape death, by morphin into a bat and fly away.


    :)
    There's more to come, stay tuned! Subscribe to this thread, sign up on the forums, read the events channel on Discord, and keep an eye on the changelog. We really do our best to inform everybody of the Spooky Month and Halloween Dimension changes.

    What is happening in October? (Week 2 Update)
    (List updates almost daily)

    - Week 3 starts at October 14th


    - Player scares
    Players will notice the server will try to scare them with some spooky halloween styles screams, noises, or even lightning.

    - Quicker cleanup of spooky mobs
    We are trying to remove mobs a little quicker, they tend to spawn a lot and really really like to kill players.

    - More mobs

    Yep, they weren't happy they were getting killed, and are now also showing up in the /general world a lot.
    Stay safe everybody.

    - Ghosts

    The ghosts from last year in /halloween are showing up this year in the other worlds. If you kill a player or a mob there's a chance you will see their ghost.

    Pro tip: These ghosts, how that looks, that's what the Halloween ghost hunt will be about in /halloween at the end of the month. They will be halloween-orange though. But now at least you know how it looks like when you find the head in that dimension.

    - Spooky Box available now!

    Type /kits, and pick the Spooky Month Box, enjoy!

    - Spooky Pumpkin Pie

    Scare effects when a player eats a pumpkin pie.

    - Scary Hoglins

    When a pig spawns there is a small chance that it will be converted into a Hoglin.

    - Witch Support
    When a witch spawn there is a small chance that an Illusioner will spawn.

    - Spooky Zombie!
    When a Zombie spawns there is a small chance that a Zombie Horseman will spawn. (It's a zombie riding a zombie horse.)

    - Killer Bunnies!

    Starting October 8th, when a rabbit spawns there is a small chance that it will be converted into a Killer Bunny. Hopefully he doesn't jump to you and EATS YOU.

    - Scary Skeleton Horseman!
    Starting October 8th, when a Skeleton spawns there is a small chance that a Skeleton Horseman will spawn. It's a skeleton riding a skeleton horse. You will recognize it by its name.

    - Halloween Dimension
    End of month the Halloween dimension will open to everybody. Major loot to get. The command to get there will be /halloween, come prepared, because the area might be super awesome, it's plagued with halloween mobs.

    - Hit Me Bats
    They can spawn around you with a bang, and say Hit Me! This might be a trick, there's a chance it's actually a magical witch waiting to attack you.

    - Jobs and mcMMO Events
    Week 2 will also have mcMMO events, maybe not 5x, it could be more or less, we will see.

    - Post your Halloween themed skin
    You have to post your screenshot in this thread to be eligible. When you do, you get a little surprise nobody else gets early November. More information here (above this post)
    https://omgboards.com/threads/fall-season-events-2020.261876/#post-759959


    View: https://youtu.be/jWO7XvcJpE0


    - Spooky Blocks
    These will continue, and possibly be a bit more scary in week 2. Keep your eyes open!

    - Keep Inventory is turned ON
    The dangers are too real, and with a bit of lag it gets unfair to die this often. Yes, you will currently still lose all your exp. But you can bottle your exp if you don't want to lose it at a special bedrock block at /warp shops. Anyway, you die: you should keep your inventory. This is to help you, if we spot players grinding mobs abusing the keepinventory feature, we might just turn it off to watch you die and lose all your stuff; stick to fairplay.

    - More clean ups of Mob entity and bigger cooldowns.
    We've noticed the feedback, it got a bit crazy, so we're purging the halloween mobs a bit sooner, and let them spawn a bit less often.

    - Mobs at night
    This week is the last week we will keep mobs spawning at night, it's possible in week 3 we will also spawn a few of them during the daytime. Upping the spooky month masacre. .. i mean.. never mind

    - Mobs disguised as death
    Invisible mobs with special armor will spawn, they might be harder to see, but their armor gives them away. However, they want you to join them in their halloween-y-death world. Have fun fighting them off.

    - Spooky "Autumn" kit
    At some point in week 2, a new /kit will show up that you can get once. Keep an eye on the /kits overview, or the changelogs. We will let you know when it's up.

    - Halloween Kit
    Near the end of the month we will try to have a special halloween Kit.

    - Spooky Jockeys
    The baby mobs are not strong enough, you all seem to be able to kill them too easily with your overpowered weapons. They called for help, their big brother spider jockeys will show up from today one. When a Skeleton spawns there is a small chance that a SkeletonJockey will spawn instead. A spider jockey is a skeleton, wither skeleton, zombie villager or stray riding a spider. Best of luck!

    - Small reminder: The more people play, and play together, the more often mcMMO/ Jobs/ etc boosters will occur, and the more fun you and your friends will have. So don't forget to invite everybody to come play.

    :)
    There's more to come, stay tuned! Subscribe to this thread, sign up on the forums, read the events channel on Discord, and keep an eye on the changelog. We really do our best to inform everybody of the Spooky Month and Halloween Dimension changes.

    new!

    - Spooky Pumpkin Pie
    Scare effects when a player eats a pumpkin pie.

    - The cooldowns and timeouts
    The timeouts between and cooldowns for the effects have been cut by 50% and therefore will occur more often.
