February Recap
Written by H1N9

The month of love is officially over and a special mention to any Fruitsters who had a birthday yesterday! March is going to be another busy month as we hop into Easter.

Farewell Claud

This week we say a sad goodbye to Claudiaiia, who has been a dedicated and hardworking member of the Survival team now for a couple of years. All the best Claud, you will be missed!

Map Expansion

It is hard to believe that the new map is already nearly a month old!  That means it is almost time for the first map expansion. On the 1st March the Survival map will be expanded from 5k X 5k to 6k X 6k, that means there are all new structures and biomes to explore.  

End Opening

Are you ready to take on the Ender Dragon?  Come along Friday at 8pm (AEDT) as we all battle to take her down and end her dominion in the End.  This will not be an ordinary dragon fight, the Fruitlords (H1N9) love to cook up some sort of evil challenge to overcome before we can get to the dragon, wonder what he has in store this time?

Juicy Fruits Update

If you have been cooking up a storm with the new recipes available with the Juicy Fruits update you may have noticed that smoothies were not craftable.  This week we have added a new multiblock structure, the Enhanced Crafting Table (made with a crafting table and a dispencer), smoothies need to be crafted in the enhanced crafting table, not the kitchen.  Information on how to build the new multiblock and all the recipes is on the wiki, type /fruittrees in game for a link.  A big thank you to lceMocha for all his hard work keeping the wiki updated.

Gyms are making a return!

With the recent data loss on Pixelmon, we lost months of hard work which has left us devastated. We have been working diligently over the last few weeks to get gyms back to a playable state. With the support of AidenMcG as a temporary builder and the hard word of the team, we have completed as many as 3 gyms! Use /gyms to access them in-game.

We will continue releasing them over time, before working on an Elite 4 for you all to test your Pokemon teams.

Reminder to everyone that votes are tallied up for the post a few hours before the end of the month so sneaking in a couple of votes right at the end may not help. Props to everyone for keeping voting as competitive as it has been, looks like everyone is eager to win themselves a voucher! Keep up the great work everyone, please message a Community-Manager or H1N9 to redeem your voucher this month.

★Top Players★

Fruitservers is an amazing community because of the people that are a part of it. Every month one player and one staff member from each server are selected and acknowledged for their contribution to the server, whether it be in-game or behind the scenes.

Congratulations to Princesspoppy3 on being Survival's staff of the month for February. Poppy is a very active member of the team, putting in a significant amount of time and effort to help new and existing players. Her dedication is greatly appreciated by all on the server and staff team.
Over the past month, Frey has been working tirelessly! From intense nights building for Valentine's Day, to the day-to-day operations of the server, Frey has been hard-working, while remaining his usual kind and reliable self. Frey is consistently helpful and has years of experience to back him up. He is incredibly approachable, so if you see him around, be sure to say hello, congratulations, and most importantly, happy birthday!

UmbraNZ is an lovely player, who isn't afraid to keep chat going and always happy to lend a hand to players. Their contributions towards the server include their building skills and projects such as /warp mall which are widely used! 
If there's one thing you need to do this map, it's visit Nick's island. You won't regret it! This genius has spent countless hours building the most beautiful island, complete with intricate towers, sprawling farms, and attention to the finest details. Although he is a man of few words, Nick is polite and consistent, and has had the staff team gobsmacked. We're so glad to have this talented architect among us. Great work, Nick!
ChemistDot has been a friendly addition to the Prison Community the past month. From helping players online and in Discord, to creating a friendly environment to all that join the server. They have definitely shown their presence throughout the Prison Community! Congratulations ChemistDot!
neurotello has been a welcoming face around Pixelmon this map. They've always been willing to help and always an active member in chat trying to help out where they can, we appreciate everything they bring to the chat and all the help they give out to the players!
