Summer Sunshine - Blog #40

Jul 14, 2021

Greetings Craftadians!

Craftadia Season Three is all about pushing our existing boundaries to all new limits. That extends to both free and premium content, meaning that we're making a conscious effort to make each and every seasonal event as exciting as possible.

New Cosmetic Types 🦩

We're adding two brand new types of Cosmetics with our latest update:

  • Animated Pets
  • Back Mounts

Animated Pets are pets with an "Epic" rarity or above, which feature unique walk-animations as they follow you around.

Back Mounts are wearable cosmetics mounted on your back, using the same technology behind jetpacks.

Summer Crates ☀️

Summer Sam has arrived at Spawn, with a ton of new offerings!

We've additionally activated a 15% Sale on every package on the Store in celebration of Season Three's first event!

Some special highlights to mention:

  • If you have Optifine, you will be able to see armor that has "+ Optifine Texture" in the lore. This is applicable for the Summer armor featured in this crate, and all new armor pieces going forward.
  • The Tiki Torch Sword has an animated texture.
  • The Toucan and Flamingo pets are (the first) animated pets, and contain "Epic" rarities.
  • The Summer Crate features a special Rubber Ducky jetpack.
  • The Summer Crate features the first back mount, the Umbrella Backpack.
  • The Summer Gradient Relic can be applied on any item to give it a Summer-inspired gradient name.
  • The Summer Armor features Fire Protection.

Note: The Summer Armor features Fire Protection, but future Crates will not consistently feature Fire Protection on armor. We will be rotating enchantments on items regularly to keep things fresh, most notably with relation to Silk Touch, various armor protections, and enchantments that deal with how you interact with the environment (Frost Walker, Respiration, etc.). Additionally, the new item rarity system will be used to create some custom elements on certain items, similar to what set bonuses currently do.

You can see complete details on every custom pet, hat, armor piece, tool, and item by clicking here.

You can additionally visit the display area next to the crate to view all cosmetics and items available

Upcoming Content Stream ⏰

We've been working incredibly hard on fixing bugs and optimizing the server in the time since Season Three has released. With that being said, we're also already working on new content that will be delivered through mid-season content updates.

Although we're still focussed on fixing bugs due to the recent nature of our launch, you can expect some more content being delivered over the next few weeks, including:

  • Announcing our first tax milestone goal & reward
  • Summer-themed Head Merchant seasonal heads
  • Season Three's first build competition
  • Season Three's first seasonal crop
  • & much more
