By default this option is toggled off. Day/Night cycle - 15 minutes day and 5 minutes nights. Mobs will spawn during night time. Allow players to spectate by flying around the world after they die. Buff Apprentice Sword so it is a Sharpness 1 Iron sword at PvP, a sharpness 2 Iron after 5 minutes, a sharpness 3 after 15 and a sharpness 4 iron in deathmatch. Buff Daredevil by +15% speed, no other changes. Make the command to team invite /team (name) instead of /team invite (name). Give Speed 3 for 10 seconds for +80 block bow shots. Added a chat message when you have the right ingredients to craft a custom recipe you own with the option to click on that chat message to automatically craft the recipe. When a player or any of their teammates engage combat with an enemy team (deal damage to them or take damage from them) the color of those players change in tab and appear first on the list. Gold Ores in inventories become gold ingots when deathmatch starts. Strength has been fixed, it will now correctly deal +30% and +60% damage for tiers I and II. ▶ New Extra Ultimates 5 new extra ultimates have been added to UHC in this update, ranging from new powerful weapons and armor to utility items which can buff the player when crafted!

New Kit: Trapper A new kit has been added to UHC: Trapper. As the name suggests, the Trapper kit revolves around making it easier for the player to make traps to catch and kill unsuspecting enemies with! Kit Changes and Balances A bunch of changes have been made to Kits in UHC. They are: Ecologist has oak wood and coal removed, but receives 12 sugar cane, 21 vines, and a stone axe with efficiency 3 and unbreaking 1 at max.

Lunch Box has golden carrots removed, but receives 12 carrots, and 2 melon slices at max. ▶ Other Changes On top of the new profession, gameplay changes, and recipes, we have also added 12 new achievements, a new pregame lobby with a fighting arena, made some changes to existing recipes, and fixed some annoying bugs! New Pregame Lobby We have added a brand new pregame lobby to UHC which you will be able to see now by jumping into a game. The new pregame lobby contains a parkour and a pvp arena for players to fighting while waiting for a game to start, just hop into the lower part of the pregame lobby and begin fighting! Apprentice Bow Changes We have changed the Apprentice Bow in this update as we felt it wasn't very useful with its current functionality. Now, the Apprentice Bow will gain power levels depending on how much damage you deal with it. Starting with no power, you will gain a power level after dealing 10, 25, 45 and 75 damage. The Apprentice Bow cannot be used in an Anvil. Void Box Changes We have considerably changed the functionality of Void Box to make it viable to craft in UHC again. Now, when you craft the Void Box, you will get 2 Void Boxes. When you place a Void Box in the world, upon placing the second, you will be teleported back to the first Void Box, and both Void Boxes will be consumed! Players can destroy your Void Box though, rending the second one useless. New Achievements 12 new UHC achievements have been added, for a total of 135 extra Achievement points.
