    Abyss Mine:
    The Abyss mine is a brand new public mine (accessed with /warp Abyss) with a unique and special purpose. The Abyss mine consists of Netherrack and Nether Quartz which all players will be able to mine and exchange in return for Essence. Essence is a brand new currency which is used to purchase unique and powerful items from the Essence shop to assist you on your Prison adventure.

    The Essence shop can be accessed using the command /Essence. This shop grants players access to all of the major custom items on our Prison server including: Mining Backpacks, Mining Chests, Autosell Chests, Mob Statues, Silverfish Spawners and the all new Mob Drop Hoppers (these hoppers will automatically pick up all mob drops in the chunk allowing for more flexible collection systems).

    Private Mine Accessibility:
    This upcoming season, Private Mines are being made accessible to everyone! Since their original inception, Private Mines have become the heart and soul of Prison, locking many players away from the content until they manage to prestige. No longer will players be required to prestige to unlock the mining portion of their Private Mine, all players will instantly be able to start mining from the second they join Prison. Alongside this change, players will now be able to see the block composition for each rank when changing their Private Mine blocks.

    Introduction Tasks:
    After 17 seasons of Prison, learning the core concepts and features can be a very daunting experience, something we are trying to combat with Introduction Tasks! These tasks involve a set of challenges for all players to complete teaching them the main mechanics of Prison and everything we have to offer. After successfully completing a challenge, players will be eligible to claim a reward. Introduction Tasks can be viewed by simply using the command /help. If you see a confused Rookie asking questions, no longer will you need to hold their hand and explain, simply inform them about /help!

    Bookmark Warps:
    This upcoming season, players will be given the ability to bookmark their favourite warps. No longer will you need to write down or memorize the names of warps, simply find your favourite warp inside the '/pmine warps' GUI, and right click it! Players are able to bookmark as many warps as they desire.

    Spectating Dungeons:
    Dungeons have become a vital aspect of our Prison server. This upcoming season, all players will be given access to spectate ongoing dungeons, a feature that was previously only accessible to staff members! Alongside this change we have also implemented a quality of life command for spectators in dungeons (/tp) allowing you to teleport to currently alive players with ease.

    Miscellaneous Changes
    As always with new seasons, it is our primary focus to ensure we deliver enough content, quality of life changes and bug fixes to satisfy our community! Players can expect to see brand new builds alongside a smoother gameplay experience with a handful of our backend plugins being updated with performance improvements. We look forward to seeing everyone this Friday. As always, enjoy!
