If you have seen PirateCraft featured on any other large publications or even large YouTube videos send me a DM, and if there are enough I will make an entire publications page!
    • I updated the visuals for “Change-logs” section. Now that we’re all caught up with latest changelogs thanks to Bombniks I thought I would make it simpler to understand, I removed all the categories for the multiple servers and all out changes between all servers have been combined into each blog post, no need to have separate server blog posts now.
