Changelogs are posted live to our discord server in the changelogs channel, make sure you join our Discord server to be the first to see changes and other content!

  • Moved NPC for /auc and disabled the Hologram at /warp cove as the auction ended! Surprised that everything from the garage sale auction sold!
  • The Travelling Merchant from /shop2 has departed with his Sea Lanterns! He will be back in the near future with different goods!
  • Removed the /msg sent when logging in about the Ranks & Commands page update, this works really well for getting people to see new features, the website tracks analytics and I can see it was being used!
  • Removed the PvP combat timer from GriefPrevention as its recommended to not have 2 PvP tag timers, Still have the 15s PvP timer from our PvP Manager plugin, If there are any issues with Siege/combat after this change, please tell me and I will put it back on! I’m going off a recommendation from the developer.
    • This change was reverted due to other issues it caused.
  • Removed the Helmsman Rank from Discord Booster until this security issue is solved with the Discord plugin.
    • Don’t worry your permissions were added in a different way! So you will still get your Discord Booster perks!
    • This will actually solve the Discord boosters wanting to /rankup in-game again!
  • Created /kit helmsman for Discord Booster which is a custom head voted for in #contributor channel!
    • 1x Discord custom head every 30d.
    • Puts your username onto the lore!
    • Puts the date you used the kit onto the lore too! (I cant remove the underscores from the date sadly)
  • Added to the whitelist for similarity via IronAR in #suggestions.
  • I re-designed /warp cove spawn/beach/Crate areas!
    • I was desperate for more space at /warp cove as the beach was too small and everything was on top of each other/a jumbled mess.
    • I extended the beach dramatically and built a second beach opposite, I’m tempted to make more of the Cove beach so we have more room, what do you think? tell me if you think I should make the beach bigger!
    • Moved /warp cove spawn to under the Bar for better “flow” of where to walk, and its closer to /warp ships.
    • New information board that I can put graphics on!
    • Treasure Chests /treasure Got moved to individual ships on the shoreline (Thanks IndexOutOfMJ & ScriptX I borrowed this idea from your version of the cove!) These guys are working on a longer term version of the cove! Stay tuned!
    • The Resource pack parrot /getpack got his own stall, and I moved that giant hologram for it!
    • Room for activities! Drops, chests, whatever, just more room! I’m tempted to make it bigger!
