Hello everyone! Trains here. Thank you much to Hex for sending this in News & Announcements for me.

I am very excited to bring you this special project that we have been working on for some time. Autre, TheHexer, and I decided to take on the initiative of creating a ‘parkour training area’ accessible to every player on the server! This area, accessible via /training, will permit players of any rank on the server to join a separate lobby with some of parkour’s most common jumps. There is also a sign at spawn linking players to this area.

These range in difficulty from as easy as a single 2 block jump, all the way to jumps pushing Minr’s skill cap such as a 3 block momentum triple neo and a ladder to ladder fence neo +2. Players will not lose their checkpoint or invalidate their time when teleporting to this area, meaning players who are having difficulties in maps can hone their skills on a jump they’re struggling with and then return to their checkpoint via /kill. With many types of jumps offered, a three button system has been set in place allowing players to:
  • Start/end the jump as well as receive a description on how to set it up
  • Get a YouTube link of resident parkourist Squidyerser hitting the jump (with keystrokes on)
  • Get the jump set up with pinpoint coordinates and pitch/yaw as well as a description on what strat to use.

Other resources included in this area are links to videos detailing how to perform parkour strats, general server information for whites/blues, and descriptive information on what each of the three buttons do. Strats will range from easier concepts like jam and 1 tick (headhitter/hh timing) to more advanced strats such as pessi and fmm. Strat videos have been made by Squidyerser and eightysixonfrq.

Though we have made a catalogue that includes the most prevalent jumps, we are always looking for more jumps and can always add more things to it. With outstanding scripts built by Hex, any recommendations, errors and suggestions for jumps can be quickly and efficiently dealt with. As well, jump videos from Squidyerser have only currently touched on the red difficulty jumps; expect more common jumps to be filled in as Squid finishes them. This initiative will hopefully improve the server as a whole. We frequently see whities in chat asking for parkour tips, and they will hopefully use this as an asset for developing good techniques early on. We as greens can also then use this area as a meeting point for whities and blues, showing them our own little tricks when performing some more difficult jumps.

This project could not have been possible without the help of so many people, but I’d like to extend a personal thank you to the admin team, as many of you helped out with scripts, regions, and other miscellaneous affairs throughout the duration of this project. Special thank you to Autre and Hex for being great teammates during this as well. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or anything else, feel free to DM any of us on discord. This project is by the community for the community, so any feedback is welcome, as we want to make this the best experience possible for every player on the server.

Cheers!
