Just Turns On Friendly Fire

PvP is Turned Off PvP is Turned On

Turning on PvP is basically just turning on friendly fire. Anyone who turns on PvP in the server will be able to receive damage. You will know that PvP is turned on for your character if the sword icons are crossed.

Allows Damage From Other Players

Keep in mind that turning on PvP for yourself only turns it on for your character, not the whole server.

If other players have not turned on their PvP settings yet, you will not be able to damage them but they will be able to damage you! Keep this in mind whenever you hop into unknown servers.

    • Soap most likely originated from when people cooked food on a spit and the fat dripped on to the white ash in the fire and when combined with water it made a lather. Adding soap could introduce hygiene factors into the game. They could introduce it similar to how the hunger works, like, the better your hygiene, the more health/stamina you can gain. Making soap could consist of cooking meat over the spit, the fat mixing with ash and then mixing it with water could give you soap.
