    - With Mojang's 1.13 being "stable", we've pushed our "alpha testing" stage into "beta testing" stage.
    Note: This is still a private beta, and the network has priority.
    Note: At this point we do not know when we will convert to 1.13, but it seems things are looking promising so far.

    - We're working on allowing 1.13 clients to connect to 1.12, if you cannot connect, please create a 1.12.2 profile and try again.
    Note: Hopefully soon, we already have working code, we're just testing it and updating the whole network with this protocol update first.

    - Summer update news: 1MB Fishing!
    Note: We've added the RPG Fishing feature to our network this Spring, and are ready to put it on every server on the network soon.
    Note: We're beta testing this, you can help! Check the beta forums if you have access for information.

    - Looking for more beta testers. Sign up today!
    Note: Interested in beta testing features and giving feedback on them? Awesome! Start a new conversation with me on the forums, and we can get started.

    - 1MB Horses feature has received a little update, making it easier to use. Thanks beta testers for the feedback!

    Important: have fun playing, building, crafting, exploring and chatting on our servers! ;)

    - The issue with the /market feature has been addressed, you should be able to put up items for 24 hours again.
    Note: We're still working on a long-term solution by the way, but enjoy trading items for money safely!

    - Our internal scripts have been updated to have better (upcoming) 1.13 support.

    - Updated the Protocol Support feature to support the latest 1.13.x builds (the best we can)

    - The 1MB PvP command now has on/off and a toggle feature, you can even check the status of your pvp, better control!
    Note: We might eventually push this into a menu, not sure yet.

    - A couple of plugins had a few tiny bug fixes, including typing errors and error msg fixing, they've been updated as well.

    Whoo, quite a bit of work has been put into the network, the -live- server and our feature set. Another Summer update out the door. Have fun playing with it all, try out the new RPG features for fishing, horses, mcMMO, etc. And if you have suggestions please do let us know.

    August 20th, 2018:

    - Fixed a few reported issues, including fishing:

    - Fishing now has points support.
    Note: The more rare a fish, the higher the points you can get (the fish will tell you how many points it's worth)
    Note: To collect the points, eat the fish!

    - The Summer Sea Adventure is over, thank you all for playing!
    Note: Everybody that played a bit got their participation rewards,
    Note: and everybody that completed it got their 1MB Adventure Box full of ph4t l00t.

    - Server restarted to have all the changes come into effect.

    - Updated the 1MB Jobs feature.
    Note: It had an internal error on /craft, fixed finally (thanks @zrips)
    Note: Players can currently join three jobs. Enjoy!

    - Enabled the "/r" command, and turned on the new "/msg" feature.
    Note: If someone sends you a /msg, you can quickly reply with : /r hi!
    Note: Which will send them a private msg reply.

    - Enabled the "/delhome" command to all groups.
    Note: Players can "/sethome BOB" (bob's just an example)
    Note: Then to get to bob's home: /home BOB.

    August 22nd, 2018:

    - Restarted the server for a bit of maintenance.

    - Fixed an annoying chat message.

    - Enabled 1MB Tips feature to all groups.
    Note: Shows as [1MB Tip] <msg here..> in grey inside the in-game chat.
    Note: Suggestions for tips? Let me know!

    - Upgraded 1MB Core to support Protocol library for 1.13.1's snapshots and 1.13.1 stable.
    Note: We're a 1.12.2 server, I still recommend to connect with the Vanilla 1.12.2 client.

    - Enabled Allowing/Deleting of players to a protected area in the /general world.
    Note: To add a friend (give them build/destroy permissions), first type: /here
    Note: Then remember the region name and type: /region addmember RegionName PlayerName
    Note: Example: /here showing region name is banana, /region addmember banana mrfloris
    Note: To remove a friend, type: /region removemember RegionName PlayerName
    Note: Too confusing? You can always ask a staff member

    - Fixed a bug reported by a few users on various servers that broken chests don't drop everything and items get lost.
    Note: Thankfully we can restore, check what's lost and give the items back.
    Note: This is now fixed, and should no longer happen.

    - Started the first phase of the 1MB Player Shops feature.
    Note: A shop currently costs 500 to create,
    Note: Players are allowed to create up to 5 shops,
    Note: In phase 1 the shops can only be created in /general __global__ region.

    August 24th, 2018:

    - I have been able to organize some various types of player-feedback from all the servers.
    Note: And am prioritizing those now.

    - The 1MB Player Shops feature is live to all groups, with a few restrictions, and so far things look good.
    Note: If things go well, we keep it, if they go poorly, we will remove it again.

    - Fixed a typing error in a system message we sometimes throw to the in-game chat.

    - Spotted ">& Thank" not being parsed properly. And fixed it!
    Note: That probably didn't make a lot of sense, but it was a bit of OCD, *had* to fix it.

    - Worked on the Bounty feature today and made it more interesting.
    Note: More about PVP in a second.

    - The 1MB Bounty feature has been updated to operate like this:
    Note: { //
    > Bounties are on? Yes, every player can now randomly be tagged by the server.
    > Duration? Lowered from 1 months to 1 week. After a week your bounty expires.
    > Tagging? The server randomly tries to tag a player about every hour. IF ..
    > Conditions? If there are 5 or more players online.
    > Bounty Prize? The payout has been raised to be a number between 500 and 5000 bucks
    }

    - The 1MB PVP feature: Some comments:
    Note { //
    > For the best "/pvp" experience, please match these conditions,
    > Play in the __global__ region of the /general world.
    > It seems to work best in the "/general" world.
    > Make sure you're not too close to the spawn point.
    > Type: "/here", and check that you're in global, and that there's a PVP flag set to allow.
    > Type: "/pvp on" to make sure you're ready to receive damage.
    > Make sure you're in Survival mode and not an Operator (99% of the players are of course).
    > Type: "/party" and make sure you're not in the party with your 'enemy', (/party leave)
    > To rejoin the party after a fight have the other person: "/party invite PLAYER" to get back in again"
    > Can we be "/friends"? Yes, you can be friends and still pvp, no need to un-friend
    > Still can't PVP? Both please re-log and see if that helps.
    }

    August 25th, 2018:

    - Updated my internal 1MB-BuildTools.sh script for 1.13.1 support.
    Note: The public version will eventually be posted.

    - Got the latest BuildTools.jar and compiled the latest Spigot 1.12.2 jars with it.

    - Restarted the server today when nobody was online to make todays changes take effect.

    - Updated the 1MB Tips messages to the following:
    Note: If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let me know.
    Note: if you have any tips you think we can include, please let me know.
    Code:
        messages:
        - '&7[1MB Tip] You can sit on stairs (right click empty handed)'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Check your: /achievements, and /mh achievements'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] mcMMO commands: /mcstats, /mcrank, /mctop :)'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] RPG features: /pet, /fish, /horse, /pvp, /friends'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Protection cmds: /cprivate, /unlock, /cmodify'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] You can own horses. Once tamed type: /horse claim'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Players can have 6 homes, builders 12 (/sethome)'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] We have a website: omgboards.com/forums/minecraft/'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Bored? Maybe play some /skygrid (dont fall)'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Need resources? You can /mine out the Mining world'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Every player has access to the /back command'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Someone just /msg-ed you? Type /r to quick-reply'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Default group: Yellow. Builders: Green. Staff: Red'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Sell or buy items with Players on the /market'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Welcome someone when they join to earn /points'
        - '&7[1MB Tip] Sell all the types of fish on the: /fish market'

    - Upgraded the 1MB Achievements feature for better 1.12.2 and 1.13 support.
    Note: "/achievements"

    - Upgraded the 1MB Hunting feature for better 1.12.2 and in preparation for 1.13 support.
    Note: "/mh achievements"

    Extra comment:

    The recent changes will take effect now, so the first time you join (last night or from this post on) you will notice your screen getting a bunch of achievements, advancements, and completed challenges. This is correct. The plugins are trying to catch up and sync up the data. After that you can use /achievements and /mh achievements or press L on the keyboard to see your Advancements so far.

    Enjoy.

    By the way, did you know the /skygrid world has custom Challenges?

    August 28th, 2018:

    - Restarted the server after running it in maintenance mode, to run in -live- mode again.

    - Updated the 1MB Horse feature to hotfix a little issue.

    - Added "repair" feature to the "/points" shop (more below)

    - Ability to repair the item you're holding in your hand.

    - Ability to repair the armor you're wearing.

    - Ability to repair everything in your inventory.

    - Ability to repair your hunger and hearts.

    Note: Yes, these aren't cheap, but they're not meant to be used constantly. It's a perk for people who are active, welcome others and collected points over time.

    Note: If anybody has any feedback, suggestions, or desires for items in the points shop, let me know. I might consider it.

    - Moved a couple of old legacy 1.8+ commands to our new 1.12.2 system.
    Note: This is in preparation of a future 1.13.x update.

    - The server was taken offline and put into Maintenance mode earlier today for about 90 minutes, this was to make some changes to improve performance in the long run. International users will benefit from this slightly.

    - Doing some sneaky maintenance without having to put the server in Maintenance mode.

    - Allowing players to get money from killing passive mods like pigs, sheep, etc.

    - Added support for OptiFine 1.13 HD U E3 beta
    Note: Optifine.net > preview builds

    - Fix an old legacy command to be using the new 1.12.2 way of doing things.
    Note: This is the same way 1.13 works, so that is perfect.

    - Updated the 1MB Horse plugin to the latest version to fix a couple of things.

    - Prepared for the September Adventure Event. Are you ready?

    September 1st, 2018:

    - A little different changelog than usual, but I thought I'd take this opportunity to let you all know what to expect in regards to Minecraft 1.13 and 1MB server/network.
    Note: {

    // The State of 1.13 Support

    Minecraft has made version 1.13.1 a public stable version. Meaning we're on the path to 1.13 as we speak.

    Spigot, the multiplayer server version that we use so we can add features and what not, has support for 1.13.1 but it's under development. It's pretty stable, and lots of plugins are supporting 1.13.1 as well.

    A big but: Spigot can only do so much. Minecraft 1.13 has a few serious bugs when it comes to world conversion and Spigot kinda has to wait for Minecraft to address those. Before they can.

    That said, since we are currently on 1.12.2 still, players Can connect with a 1.13.1 client to our 1.12.2 server, it will work, it will have issues, and it's not recommended, but it works.

    So where does that leave server owners like me? Well, our server(s) are all on 1.12.2 now. All the old 1.8 -> 1.12 plugins have been properly updated, converted, tested and are in use -live- on our network and our little survival server. And quite a few of these plugins have 1.13 support, or are developing a 1.13 version.

    However, we have 65 plugins / features / 'things' like tools, resources, etc. that we use for our network and this server. And as of our count today 35 of them have a way to be converted, updated, upgraded, replaced with.. a plugin/tools/etc. that has 1.13.1 support. Or it's at least in development. And while that's great news, it's only 35 out of 65. That's more than 50% but it's not 90% or better.

    So at this point we can't properly convert our network (servers) to 1.13.1 if we wanted to. Unless we disable some core features, risk never updating some functions, tools, lose or risk player data, world chunk lo.. anyway, all sorts of stuff.

    But where does that leave us? We are looking into testing the 35+ resources that have 1.13.1 support, we are testing world conversion from 1.12 to 1.13, and we're testing keeping player data. And yes, that means we have quite a bit of work ahead of us. We need to do this in three stages.

    In September (the period of the end of the Summer Update and before the Autumn or Winter update) we have a test month. We will internally test 1.13 in three stages before we test the success of this (if any) in a public beta. Anybody on our beta-group will get access (so keep your eyes on that beta forum to catch new content).

    And while I am testing, and we are testing, the team will also search for replacement or other solutions and talk to developers, etc. to try and get 1.12 stuff to work, that doesn't work in 1.13.1.

    I am also confident that Mojang will update Minecraft to improve world-conversion and other 1.12.2 -> 1.13.x update issues. As well as Spigot improving their 1.13.x support and developers updating and upgrading their 1.13.x resources.

    Yes, it's a slow progress, but 1.13.x is a massive update!

    If you have any concerns, questions, or comments, feel free to post them below!

    // More info will be shared as we have something concrete

    }

    September 9th, 2018:

    - We're now running on the whole network on the latest Spigot 1.12.2 build!
    Note: { // Getting closer to 1.13.x (common mojang, fix those bugs pls)
    >ver
    [02:58:37 INFO]: This server is running CraftBukkit version git-Spigot-2cf50f0-2b93d83 (MC: 1.12.2) (Implementing API version 1.12.2-R0.1-SNAPSHOT)
    [02:58:37 INFO]: This is a final build for 1.12.2. Please see https://www.spigotmc.org/ for details about upgrading.
    >
    }

    - Removed all the Crash reports from the network after review.
    Note: There were thankfully very few.

    - Removed all the log files from before January 1st, 2016 from the network after review.
    Note: We try to limit log files to the last 2,5 years.
    Note: This does not include player data, inventory data, world data, etc.

    - Processed quite a bit of plugin discussions with their authors for 1.13.x support

    - First alpha test of three upcoming features, oh boy.. this might take a while.
    Note: We might soon be able to send items to other players (Without dropping them)
    Note: We might soon be able to exchange items with other players (Without /market)
    Note: We might soon get something 'fun' to do.
    Note: ^^^ but more about that later!

    - Did the first internal test of 1.13 stuff

    - Did a couple more friends-adventure runs with people.
    Note: Remember, sunday is the last day you can start an adventure, just contact mrfloris
    Note: Loot boxes have been paid out to those who played through the other server.
    Note: The -live- survival server loot boxes will be paid out Monday.

    - Threw Discord online and found my password from ages ago.
    Note: I am there as floris#0233 (feel free to add me)

    - Started the Discord channel for the forums and servers.
    Note: We start with #minecraft (our general chat channel)
    Note: But I will obviously organize and grow things over time.

    - Added a [builders] world to the server, we're beta testing it now with @RodolfoGiusti (vloop)
    Note: Should be open to everybody later this week through the command: /builders, I will post when that happens.

    - Processed bug reports and other player feedback so I can schedule maintenance for the month.

    - Cleaned up some outdated servers that we no longer want to run.
    Note: All player data and world data, item data etc is archived and will be imported into s004.
    Note: The handful of players will all receive an email with further information.

    - /rtp is enabled in the /mine (resources) world.
    Note: Enabled worlds: /general, /mine, /nether
    Note: The nether due to it's lava will probably not find a safe spot a lot..

    - Compass, item to /j
    Note: The default group does not have access to /j (yellow chat color)
    Note: The default group does not have access to Compass item to /j
    Note: The Builder group (green) Has access to /j and now also to Compass item.
    Note: To use: craft a compass, and point it at something, left click to teleport to it.

    Heads-up, this Tuesday and Wednesday I will probably be in pain from a dentist treatment, and on heavy meds. But Minecraft is a great distraction, I might just join in bursts of 10 minutes to distract myself. Hopefully by Thursday I will be good enough to dedicated properly to the server.

    Have a disco party! Invite your friends from Twitter, Facebook, PMC, Tumblr, Discord, to join you and play with you :) just make sure you're not spamming.

    September 10th, 2018:

    - We had an unexpected server restart last night when I got home.
    Note: { // Let me explain, hehe
    Came home with nothing but the network in a semi suspended mode,
    servers, workstations, devices, they were either off or running 'in the background',
    I suspect a power cut, and the APC kicked in and we stayed online, however..
    I was unable to get the workstation online that grants me access to control all of this,
    so I was forced to save the state to disk, stop the server, and restart the network, etc.
    3 minutes later all the containers initiated properly again. I regained control, and we were back.
    }

    - Reviewed what happens to help prevent this from happening again in the future
    Note: But I can't promise haha. I can only do so much.

    - Processed a few user-reported issues.

    - Internally we tested the 'mail box / gift box' feature.
    Note: It worked, but I am not happy with it, considering to merge with exchange feature

    - Internally we tested the 'exchange / trade' feature.
    Note: It worked, pushed it to the beta test group. (beta users, please check the beta forum)

    - Internally we tested the 'domination' feature.
    Note: This installed properly, didn't operate properly. We had to uninstall and report bugs.

    - The 1MB Fishing feature got a tiny little update to fix a tiny bug.

    - The 1MB Points feature got a tiny little update to fix a tiny bug.

    - When everybody was offline, I run the server in Maintenance mode to make a bunch of changes.

    September 11th, 2018:

    - Internal test of upcoming '1MB Domination' feature went a lot better
    Note: Yesterday it failed horribly, today I got 75% of it to work. Progress!
    Note: Not ready for beta testing with the group yet, fingers crossed.

    View: https://youtu.be/avVpsOX5wNg


    - Internal test of upcoming '1MB Exchange' feature went a loooot better
    Note: It's available to the Survival server to all groups, but still limited on the Network to the beta-groups.
    Note: "/trade offer <player>"

    - The '1MB Exchange' feature now allows 'empty' trades, meaning you don't have to give the other player something back.

    View: https://youtu.be/3srAG8w9Xwg

    - The '1MB Exchange' feature we dubbed "/gift" is now live to all groups to beta test.
    Note: The latest update allowed us to customize things the way we wanted.
    Note: How to use: /gift send player (this will send to the other player what you are holding) /gift sendmore player (this will open a chest interface and you can send a lot more at once to the other player) To receive gifts you do not have to be online. /gift open, allows you to check if you have any gifts. It will also let you know once you've connected if you have any unopened gifts.
    Note: Right now all groups get the maximum amount of gift storage (54), once the new ranks are in place and we're done beta testing, (and decide to keep or not keep this plugin) the various ranks will get various gift box sizes ranging from 9, 18, .. to 54.

    - Internal test of upcoming '1MB Gambling' feature went ok today
    Note: There's a single slot machine available for testing, give me a poke in-game to get access to it.

    View: https://youtu.be/v4wS1EBR4A4


    - Getting slowly frustrated with the grinding-penalty, maybe we should just turn it off?

    - Updated two plugins that caused issues due to their new 1.13 code, reported to developers.

    - The '1MB Spawners' feature is temporarily disabled while we're upgrading it.
    Note: The newer version will allow more groups to have more spawners.
    Note: And gives the staff more control over custom and unique spawners.
    Note: And yes, staff will be able to silk touch a spawner to move it (over a couple of blocks) (not enabled yet)
    Note: Also, it will allow us to make the /hunting world more scary and more awesome with better rewards.
    Note: Aaaaand, this is not old 1.8 working on 1.12, but 1.12.2 that also works on 1.13.x (woot)

    - Here are some screenshots of the new Interface to the Upcoming /spawners shop. (yes, doesn't work now)
    Note: Not all the displayed mob-types will be available to you(r group). This is a demo.

    September 13th, 2018:

    - Made a manual backup of the whole server setup successfully yesterday, completed error checking of this today.
    Note: Yes, automated backups are still happening.

    - Restarted the server manually when there were 0 players online.
    Note: This to activate a few changes.

    - The new spawner system is semi-active, existing spawners will automatically update!
    Note: Old spawners have on title, touch it with your empty hand and it will update it to the new one with a title.

    - The '1MB Gift' feature is made public to all groups.
    Note: Type: "/gift" to get started.
    Note: Gift is basically a player to player mailbox that goes alongside the "/trade" command.
    Note: Yes, this is now in public beta stage, we're not 100% convinced yet if we're going to keep this.

    People have been making fantastic builds and played with the features. Thanks to all those who recently re-joined our server, beta tested stuff, played for hours, and build structures for days!

    Note: Blue team won!

    - Created a few new warps: /warp shop, /warp slotmachine, and /warp treefarm
    Note: Plural works as well.

    - Official ended the Friends Adventure, if someone wants to play it, please msg me. But technically it's over.

    - Announced the Domination Event for this weekend, very likely we will do it a couple of times this weekend.
    Note: Test run Friday evening if there's enough players

    - Added Market Stalls at the warp shops for people to pick and use (play fair please), you can use ShopChests!

    - Added a couple more Slot Machines and made it available to all usergroups. Don't get addicted!

    September 15th, 2018:

    - Updated the '1MB Menu' feature to be more friendly when it tries to give you the /menu item in your inventory, but fails, because it detects there's already something in there. It now looks like this: (and now it also teachers players they can just use /menu to get to it as well)
    Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 10.38.19.png

    - Renamed the '1MB Hunting Gold' money bag to just 'Hunters Gold!'
    2018-09-15_10.42.44.png

    - Added the option to give players their special event achievement
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/collect-your-special-achievement.261447/

    - Updated the '1MB Tips' theme for consistency reasons.

    - Removed a old 1.8 plugin we were using for certain commands, it worked in 1.12 poorly. And replaced it with an existing 1.12.2 plugin that now has this feature, and is ready for 1.13.x I've also adjusted the theme to be matching the new 1mb tips theme.

    Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 14.07.53.png

    Here's a list of the commands and what they do, just in case nobody knew about them.
    Code:
    /web, /site, /website, /forum, /forums
    These commands are all the same, they will display the link to the OMG boards.
    
    /register
    A link to register on the OMG boards.
    
    /beta
    A link to the private 'beta players' forum on the OMG boards.
    
    /changelog
    A link to the changelog thread on the OMG boards. Handy if you want to stay up to date.
    
    /social, /twitter, /facebook, /discord
    These commands are all the same, they will display a link to our social network profiles.
    
    /staff, /apply, /mod
    These commands are all the same, they will let you know if we're looking for new staff (and how to apply).
    
    /inventory
    Information about the shared inventories in the 1MB universe we play in.
    
    /worlds
    Information about the worlds in the 1MB universe we play in.
    
    /newplayer
    Information for new players on how to get started.

    - Updated the '1MB Gift' feature to match this new theme I keep talking about.
    Note: Screenshot:
    Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 14.30.29.png

    - Updated the '1MB Version' protocol support thingy to allow 1.13.1 clients to connect (fixed a few issues)

    - Updated the '1MB Version' reported thingy to match the theme / style I keep mentioning in this changelog.
    Note: If you connect with outdated or too new of a version, it will report this to you. if you're on 1.12.2 and you connect you will be told that's perfect. While 1.13.1 works to connect with, it's strongly recommended still to use 1.12.2 clients to connect to this still 1.12.2 server.
    Note: screenshots!
    Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 15.02.07.png
    Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 15.01.30.png
    - Turned on Double Exp for the weekend. Enjoy!

    - Updated the '1MB Fun' feature to match this .. guess what: theme / style; ill show in a screenshot:
    Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 15.15.17.png

    - Updated the '1MB Points' feature to match the style a bit too.

    - Took the server offline for some (network) maintenance.
    Note: I will let you know in this post and on Discord when it's back online.

    - Edit: Done, we are back online with a lower latency network with improved hardware.

    - Added "/youtube" as a command to show a link to my youtube channel.
    Note: Subscribe, like, leave a comment below! Click Share, the bell, and tell a friend. haha

    - Added the Pet Food as purchase option in the /points shop.
    Note: You can craft pet food by putting apples around a slimeball.
