PARTYZONE ANNUAL 24 HOUR LIVESTREAM
It's that time of year again! Last year we had a 24 hour live stream which was tons of fun! This year we brought it back and made it a lot more organized and got the help of a few more friends. What all has changed? Well, a lot actually. So be sure to skim through the information below!

After Hours (MUST READ)
This year we're incorporating a new concept which you need to be made well aware of. PartyZone strives for family friendly G-PG rated content. But we're learning to accept the fact that many of you and us are growing up. Which is why we have a section of the stream from 12am EDT - 6am EDT called "After Hours" During this section we will be cursing. There will be inappropriate jokes. we will be playing mature rated games. We recommend if you are sensitive to these things, easily offended, or just a tad too young, go get some sleep for 6 hours and come back to us in the morning. Trust us. It's better that way.

When is the Stream and How can I see it?
The live stream will start at 3pm EDT on Wednesday April 4th and continue until 3pm EDT the next day. If you want to watch just tune into https://www.twitch.tv/mcpartyzone at any time during that day and see what we're up to.

Who will be on Stream?
Last year it was Gigo and Gamer for the entire thing with others joining and leaving. This year there's more.
Currently there are about 7 of us who will be attempting to stay on for the whole thing. I (GamerGuts) will be hosting the stream primarily. I will be there for the entire time. We also are expecting appearances from all of our regular streamers, plus surprises from many of our admins, developers, and well known community members.

What will you be playing?...

ANNUAL LOBBY EGG HUNT

31st March onwards

This year we have our annual Easter Egg Hunt! Its time to find the eggs that the Easter Bunny has lost around our lobby, but where are they hidden? It's your job to collect all the eggs and bring them back to the bunny safe and sound. As per usual, there are multiple different kinds of eggs to be found, including special mythical eggs to find. Gather as many eggs as you can for a chance to win a special prize from the Easter Bunny!

[​IMG]

How does it work?

To participate in the egg hunt, you must connect to our lobby on play.mcpz.net, vip.mcpz.net or elite.mcpz.net. All around the lobby there are eggs falling from the sky which you have to pick up and they will go into the basket which can be found in your hot bar (it is a minecraft skull which looks like an egg basket), left or right click the egg basket top open it, it will tell you all the different eggs you have and how many you have of each. At the end of the event the person with the most eggs will win a prize, as well as 2nd and 3rd. If you also want to know how long you have left until the event is over, you can hover over the clock in your egg basket to find how long is left, as shown here:

You can also gain entries into our prize draw by collecting eggs, where prizes will be given out randomly at the end, this works by a levelling system which can be shown here:...

Hey everyone!

As you've probably noticed some of the older games have been moved to the Arcade part of the lobby. Today we are releasing a much awaited, brand new type of game, Party Games!

What are Party Games?

Party Games are micro-games that take around 60 seconds to complete. Each one is fast paced, and engaging and you'll be surprised that 60 seconds went so quickly once you reach the end. After one game, you are sent to the next micro-game until you've rotated through all of the fun games we have.

So, what games are there?
Well, we've got five...

Firstly, we have Frogger! Leap across the map before your opponents in this fast paced game. Make sure to watch out for moving obstacles!

Next we've got That's My Birthday Cake! Compete to eat as much cake as you possibly can in under sixty seconds, whoever eats the most cake wins.

Introducing our third game, Archery Course. Test your bowmanship by destroying your opposition in a classic game of archery.

Fourth up we have Hot Potato. Wouldn't want to keep a burning hot potato in your hands too long, otherwise you might feel the burn. Run around and try not to keep hold of the potato too long.

Last but not least, we have
Hole In The Floor, a tense scramble to find a passage to the next floor. Each layer gets progressively harder until you finally reach the end! Sweet, sweet victory!

Who can play?

Well, right now Party Games is in VIP and...

Thanks to Emoh for the graphics!

Thank you all for your submissions...

It’s been a while since we’ve put some of your creations into our games but get ready for a massive release of maps created by you guys! We have six new maps being introduced into murder.

[​IMG]

*Due to some technical issues Hospital has been replaced by Mirage

The Maps

Introducing Atlantis, an underwater themed map, created by @ThaMango . This map plays beautifully and looks just as beautiful too.

Get ready to fight to the death in our new map Dojo, created by @Harrow__ . This map is a beautiful, nature filled map with a towering dojo situated between the cliffs.

Piece together the murder mystery on Factory by @ThaMango . With winding halls, crates and back rooms this map sure will be fun to play on and hide around.

Based off another CS:GO map we've got Mirage by @Breadstickk and @WorldEdit_ . Shoot the murderer to death in this iconic map.

A Hotel, created by @ThaMango and @xXGlassShardXx may not be a safe place to be when a killer is nearby. Just make sure not to forget your room key anywhere in the corridors or outside while marveling at the beautiful fountain.

The last of our murder maps is Library created by @PigZombie777 and @CompleteCircuit . Just make sure you don’t get blood on the books, the librarian will get mad.

Thank you all for your...

Hello all,

Today we are releasing an update to Murder which should add some variety to our already great list of maps. We have added mutations!

What Are Mutations?
Mutations are extra additions to the game which will add special mechanics which do not normally appear in games. They are chosen randomly from a list, and are enabled on a per-round basis. They have the potential to add/remove items, change the look and feel of the map, and even add secondary objectives.

Which Mutations Are There?
The current mutations are as follows:
  • Double Emeralds: Every emerald pickup is doubled!
  • Double Jump: Everyone can jump super high, even the murderer!
  • Gun Game: Everyone (except the murderer) has a gun!
  • Speed: Everyone has speed II for the entire round!
We are also accepting your feedback/ideas on the current and on new mutations. Feel free to suggest some in the suggestions subform and leave feedback on the current ones below.

I Like Murder How It Is!
We are sure some of you are skeptical about changes to one of our core games, and I understand. That is why during our beta stage, mutations will only be enabled on one of the three maps selectable during voting. If you don't want mutations, simply vote for a map without them enabled.

The update will be live across the network shortly, so hop in a game soon and let us know what you think!

Thanks, and enjoy!
Austin
