Veterans and above now have a "backpack". In each eligible player's inventory is a new item that can not be dropped or destroyed. Right clicking this item or holding this item and right clicking will open up a row of additional storage. Each rank gets an extra row on top of the previous.
BetterSleeping has now been replaced with the Harbor plugin. This allows the night to smoothly advance if at least 30 percent of online players are sleeping.
The brewery/alcohol plugin is now fully functional. Recipes can be found in the tutorial section. All players have access to this feature.
Farm limits have been relaxed. For farms that extend out to 5 chunks, the limits are less. However for farms that include a single chunk and 1x1 farms, the limit is now 10.
The "exploit"/troll of spamming mushroom stew has been patched and any mushroom stew that falls to the ground will be removed within 5 seconds.
The nether and the end have now been pregenned out to 100k chunks. (this is not a 100k radius. This is 100k chunks total). This should make travelling and exploring in the nether and the end easier, and allow chunks to load faster.
Villagers now check for nearby job blocks slightly less often.
After many hours of tweaking, testing, breaking and fixing, hours of chasing down illegal moonshine stills, and black market shops, the brewery plugin is now officially live. Basic idea is you cook ingredients in a heated cauldron, distill them in a brewing stand, and for some types of liquor, age them in a barrel. The end result is a potent alcoholic drink. This feature is available to all players. Check out the tutorial section of the forum for a quick starter guide on brewing.
