    October 21st, 2019:

    - Restarted the server to activate some pending maintenance changes.

    - Fixed a small issue with a teleport feature.
    Note: packets should be handled slightly better now.

    - Lowered the price of storing your exp in bottles using dragon breathe.
    Note: It has been $100, we've set the new price to $80.
    Note: /warp enchant (on the left, the bedrock block in the hut)
    Note: I think that Tidala's dragon breathe shop is back in stock as well.
    Note: And I think there's a dragon again in the /end world.

    - Disabled an old trick to store all your exp at once in a bottle.
    Note: Sorry, we no longer want players to use this trick.

    - Updated the OMGboards.com forum structure.
    Note: Created new sub-forums for Support Tickets, Ban-Appeals, Events.
    Note: Some content has been moved around.

    - Updated the top notice on the OMG forums in the Minecraft category
    Note: Easier to find big blue buttons, hard to miss now..

    - The rules have been updated with a new section (ban-appeals). These are not old rules, they're just made public due to changes to the forum layout. (last post in the below thread)
    https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-rules.260946/

    - Added a custom RPG/MMO recipe to obtain Ink Sac
    Note: Mix up the colors, to get black.
    Note: Include a cauldron to mix it in.
    Note: And a painting for the ink.
    Note: This is a shaped recipe, it requires these items, in this shape:
    Screenshot 2019-10-21 at 06.25.17.png

    - Fixed an issue with 'smiley blocks', making placing and breaking of blocks a bit funny.
    Note: Thanks for reporting everybody!

    - Found about 4 npc villages with /rtp in /general that were completely broken. Old 1.8 and 1.12 and 1.13 generation caused issues. I've restored them to their 1.13.2 generated version. They're all pretty again!

    - Applies some light-fixing to various places that are visited recently a lot by players. Making sure light levels etc are showing correctly the best they can.

    - For the limits issue on acid, cave, skygrid, and skyblock. If you run into one, give me a poke. I can now much easier re-calculate the limits of your island in those game modes. Making miscalculations hopefully going away as they buggily occur from time to time.

    - Updates to the Discord channel has sort of completed, we're already making plans for November and December, and a final tweak for 2020. Any suggestions? let us know!

    - Some Skyblock features were limited to the island owner. Or requires the island owner to remain online. We've further expanded this so this isn't s 100% requirement anymore.

    - Skyblock BIOME Beta feature is live, /menu skyblock and you can choose this. It shoooould work better than the other day.

    - Skyblock Challenges Beta feature is live to all groups now. /menu skyblock and you can choose it. Some silly issues are still there, but we've made minor changes. More to come! If you have any suggestions for skyblock challenges, let us know!

    - /achievements has received a slight update, by the way; have you finished all the achievements yet? let me know!

    - I've been berserking all day. I no longer have an issue with cracking stone bricks into cracked stone bricks.

    - Slight price adjustments on a handful of waste-items through /sell, averaging out the balance between them ever so slightly.

    - We want to raise the price of emeralds on the server, any suggestions? Contact me in private to discuss it!

    - We've enabled Worth feature to all players. You can also go to /warp shops, there's a 'worth bedrock' block there.
    Note: You can hold an item and type: /worth, it will tell you how much it thinks it's worth on the server.
    Note: You can type: /worth all, and it will tell you how much all the items are were you to /sell them.
    Note: Yes, the value of /warp shop ->worth block, or /worth, or /sell, are all the same.
    Note: You think a price is too high or too low, compared to other blocks? Let us know! Make suggestions.

    Phew! Another big list :)

    Did you see yesterday's update? You can vote and with /charlie you can see how close you get to spawning Charlie the Pinata at /warp charlie. There's also a surprise there for the observing players that like to explore.

    October 22nd, 2019:

    - Restarted the server to free up some memory.

    - We had an issue with gravity again, the restart also fixed this.

    - Updated the OMG sub-forum Minecraft notice at the top again, all the buttons are there.

    - Upped the Skyblock limit of 3 villagers to 10 max, this should help with a skyblock challenge.

    - Fixed a few typing errors on Discord.

    Looking for something fun to do? Try to find this untouched temple and be the first to raid it's loot.

    - Took the servers on the local network offline to do some kernel patching to the OS.

    - Halloween Event: Some active players doing certain actions will find themselves with some Halloween themed Suffix behind their name above their head. Ask your friend if you have one, post it to our /discord!

    - Fixed a silly bug with Cave and Acid worlds.

    - Went through 50 todo items to get a better idea what to do in November.

    - Beta tested the 1MB Sapling. Did you see the livestream?

    - The Trick and Treat event is still going! Don't miss out :) Go knock on those doors!
    Note: we have 50 doors, 36 types of treats variations, and about a dozen silly fun tricks.

    - Restarted the server to fix a memory leak issue that thought it was funny, but we showed it who's boss.
    Note: Thank you for reporting the issue ender_vine!

    - Some might have noticed! Difficulty in the Halloween Dimension was adjusted to easy.
    Note: Three days ago: from hard to normal. Yesterday from Normal to Easy.
    Note: We've told the phantoms to stay home now.

    - Optifine mod?
    Note: We like shaders, we like resource packs, we like our builds, we like old computers still running Minecraft.
    Note: We do not like particle lag, heavy memory eating feature, etc. Optifine is a whitelisted mod to help with running shaders and tweaking your MC experience. Get it from the Official site though.
    Note: Mods that give an unfair advantage is against our /rules.

    - Resource pack?
    Note: We do not have an 1MB Resource pack, we leave it up to the player to have the most fun on their own system.
    Note: Personally I use Faithful 32x sometimes, or some Vanilla Tweaks selected things.
    Note: Resource packs that give an unfair advantage is against our /rules.

    - Shader pack?
    Note: We recommend BSL 7.1 from their official website. It comes with loads of settings to tweak it to your systems' performance for the best experience.
    Note: Other packs we like are Sildurs and SEUS. I am on BSL the most myself.
    Note: Shaders that give an unfair advantage is against our /rules.

    Show us your awesome screenshots :)

    October 31st, 2019:

    Last day of the Month, almost time to dust off the old November todo list and continue Autumn Updates again. But here's what's been pending an update for now. Maintenance!

    ### HEADS UP : Server will be OFFLINE for a few hours (hopefully shorter, not longer) as electricians are replacing old fashioned boxes with modern ones ###

    - Updated internal quest list, something something for the future.

    - Made further preparations towards 1.14 and 1.15 support. Every bit now helps upgrading later I guess.

    - Fixed issues with enchantment books and a few plugins, less empty books now too I hope.

    - Caught a user abusing a GUI interface, we've had a chat in private, and took all their items. You can start over again and please don't play unfair. Next time you're being naughty it's a perm ban.
    Note: And that bug has been fixed.

    - Another bug fix: Jobs exp/points/money calculations are more accurate.

    - Fixed a bug with the Jobs feature that let people earn money illegally. When we're done scanning the log files those who abused it obviously can expect a perm ban. Want to avoid a perm ban? Talk to me in private before November 5th.

    - The jobs interface now has option to also leave a job, not just join one.

    - Merged Core and CMI and Jobs and other interfaces into 1 library set, speeding up loading, caching, material comparing etc. Also fixes many issues many plugins have as a whole.

    - Introducing item boosting, that's all I can say. As a player you won't notice, but it's there.

    - The Worth of items is now handled better, more accurate, and easier for the player ingame to deal with.

    - Bunch of typo fixes, sigh there are so many. Thank you for reporting ender_vine!

    - Much improvements on the holograms, we can start using them again now.

    - Added 0.025 ms cooldown to all commands, this way we can track auto clickers more accurately and catch macro, repeaters, auto clickers and auto perm ban them. Note that unfair gameplay will result in non-appealable perm bans. Stop being stupid, play fair, have some patience.

    - Improvements to the PING command are being tested, once we're happy we will make it available to all groups in November.

    - Cuffed, muted, and jailed players will soon learn how to play nice, we will start testing our jail system the coming months. Be nice, don't get caught in a jail.

    - Nickname stealing is no longer possible. Meaning we might introduce them in early 2020 'for funsies' under rare conditions.

    - And about 25 more behind the scenes changes that also hardly make any sense, but they're there!

    - Slowing down on the Halloween event today, things will slowly go back to normal on November 1st.

    Have fun going to /halloween today and knock empty handed on some doors for some trick/treating - it's a shame to miss out on all the items.

    - Players who earned a cosmetic perk will receive it soon.

    - Turned the server back on.

    - Started preparations for the Thanksgiving Month, which will start at some point during October.

    - Reset the Discord channel names to what they were before the event.

    - Updated some in-game commands like /halloween, /thanksgiving, /event, etc.

    - Removed all the Halloween-guests from the Halloween Dimension.

    - Disabled access to the Halloween Dimension.

    - Reset /spawn, /general, /end, /nether, and /mine difficulty to NORMAL.

    - Spawned the ender-dragon in the /end
    Note: You want the dragon? Give me a shout, I don't mind spawning it back in.

    I hope everybody had fun in November with the Halloween Month!

    November 4th, 2019:

    - Restored the Discord channels to their original glory.

    - Added a background images to the Discord Invite page.

    - Replaced the Piggy icon with the Animated Fox icon.

    - Set the Audio Quality of the General voice chat channel to 128kbps.

    - Heads-up: Discord Purge 2019 will happen December 31st, 2019.
    Note: Meaning, no-role users who haven't said something in 30 days get kicked.

    - The Halloween 2019 Top Skins we've picked are: Tidala, Fr33_S0ul, and xTientjex.
    Note: Congrats!

    - We're slowly working on the Thanksgiving Events this month.
    Note: First event will be Thanksgiving mcMMO Weekend:
    Note Schedule: Friday evening double exp on all skills, until
    Note: Schedule: Saturday 24 hours triple exp for mining skill, until
    Note: Schedule: Sunday double exp on all skills, until monday morning.

    - Due to Vloop's travels and change of life he decided to take a step back from the team as community helper. This allows him to focus on being a player on the server when he does have the free time.

    - Further Thanksgiving Event preparations have been made.

    - Jobs plugin had a maintenance update, we've applied it.

    - Server restarted for various reason.

    Thank you all for having fun playing on the server, invite a friend, make it even more fun?

    November 11th, 2019:

    Quite a bunch, I'd read it through to get a free mending book.

    - The '1MB Perk' feature had an update, starting with general maintenance and code clean-up.

    - Some of the servers had issues with the Perk Music feature, but this has been addressed too.

    - Sometimes when you die you'd still have the item (doubled) in your inventory. Hopefully this is fixed now.

    - The '1MB Jobs' feature had an update, starting with general code improvements and overall maintenance.

    - Sometimes updating the Jobs Signs would cause quite a bit of load on the server, this should be fixed now.

    - Database conversion apparently didn't go too smoothly, I believe we've rolled back and will try again.

    - Improvements to the Jobs daily Quests, I think in 2020 we can start introducing this feature to all groups.

    - The '1MB Core' and CMI features have received updates, numerous maintenance and performance improvements.

    - Per player/group/rank enchantment levels should be possible now, and should provide less issues. #2020

    - Sometimes when you updated your skin it wasn't recognized, hopefully it shows faster now.

    - Idle bossbar messages didn't go away, I think we figured out why.

    - If a player is muted, and the server would restart, they would no longer be muted. This should be fixed now.

    - Some commands had issues with tab-completes, hopefully we've caught a few more and fixed these.

    - Active players with a rank higher than builder will automatically be added and removed to internal maintenance/whitelist/full list as a perk to gain access to beta testing, and obvious stuff like that.

    - I think we now have /kitpreview <kitname>, I haven't tested this yet.

    - Hover-over msgs could be screwed up, I should probably test this now. haha.

    - Safe teleportation should be more accurate now and give less false positives. Yay math.

    - Improvements to internal staff balance top command vs public player balance top command.

    - Sometimes players would list twice with 'playtimetop', this should be fixed now.

    - Item information option has been improved and is now more detailed.

    - We use an internal conditional 'ifonline', and had issues with this, this should be fixed now.

    - Removed some old players from groupmanager who didn't convert properly to unique UUID.

    - If you made it this far in the changelog, come online and type: /mail send mrfloris 79sfnwo290changelog', to receive a mending book. (Valid for the next 72 hours)

    - Start double exp for mcMMO for the week.

    Quite a bit of changes, and hopefully more to follow. We're excited about 2020 and the Thanksgiving event.

    - Fix for offline players' displayname when saving data.

    - Fixes to /warp system

    - Made the @mention option in-game more dynamic.
    Note: We haven't made any real changes as of yet.

    Small update, but every update counts. I had fun playing survival instead of doing maintenance :P

    - Changed the /rules from 'all ages' to '13 and up'.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-rules.260946/#post-758783

    Youtube requires us to mark our live-streams and content as 'not for kids', and so does Discord, and social media platforms, etc. Our forum already has a minimum age, and despite my personal opinion regarding this topic, it's just 'easier' for us to become 13+.

    We're not a registered company creating content or offering a game server where we commercially exploit players etc. So this isn't going to be a hard rule we will enforce anyway, if you're currently under the age of 13, I am sure you will get older eventually.

    - Fixed a dupe issue with mcMMO.

    - "You have mail" message will show a bit later after logging in, helping it become more visible.

    - Testing /distance, allowing certain groups in the future to find other players easier, or calculate distance between blocks.

    - Bunch of other small improvements.

    Where's everybody?

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody

    - This month the server had Turkeys in all the worlds, you can recognize them because they say Gobble gobble.

    - The Thanksgiving event has started, it lasts about 24 hours.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/all-they-turkeys-escaped.261759/

    - If you catch all 25 turkeys, you gain temporary access to explore land nobody's ever seen before.
    Note: Like a pilgrim, you can /fly and explore new land for the next 24 hours.

    - To celebrate thanksgiving, we've enabled QUAD exp for all skills for the next 24 hours.

    See you all on the server :)

    Headsup: Christmas is going to be fun! Starting december 1st if everything goes ok. Schedule time daily for a few minutes to be on the server to not miss out.

    That was fun! Thank you all for playing the Thanksgiving Event!

    - Shutdown the server to end the November events and do basic maintenance.

    - Archived a few event worlds from this year to clean things up.

    - Pruned log files up until April 1st, 2019.

    I can't believe it's almost December!

    December 10th, 2019:

    - Restarted the server to clean up a few plugins.

    - Added back '1MB Version' during this grace-period, allowing players to connect with 1.15 to the 1.13 1MB server.
    Note: We strongly recommend to use a vanilla 1.13.2 client to connect to our 1.13.2 spigot MC server.

    - Added new command: /115

    - Removed command: /114

    - More information about 1MoreBlock.com and Minecraft 1.15 can be found here:

    Little update :)

    - We've had a bunch of events, the daily advent calendar is still going strong, and we're all having fun on the server.
    Note: Don't forget to join and enjoy your holiday with us!

    - We might not have shown a lot of updates to the server but that's because the events' running. But we're not sitting still. I spend about 2 to probably 4 or 5 hours each day working on playing, testing, learning, and converting things and updating plugins etc to version 1.15
    Note: Yeah, 1.15 is looking promising.

    - For example. Some plugins are for 1.13.2, and now they're supporting 1.15. So we're slowly updating our plugins to these newer 1.15 versions (that also still support 1.13.2) and doing this step by step so we can quickly roll back if we spot issues. This makes upgrading to 1.15 eventually a lot easier for us.

    - We've so far (initial test) converted almost all of our worlds. The Skyblock gamemodes still have to get tested. And after that it's a matter of getting the whole setup to work together with some basic 1.15 plugins on 1MB for version 1.15.

    - All the 1MB specific and proprietary plugins have been converted and working smoothly alongside the other 1.13 and 1.14 servers on the network. And I've been working quite a while on upgrading all our internal shell scripts.

    - There are a couple of potential world-corrupting bugs with Vanilla 1.15 that we're hoping to see fixed in upcoming 1.15.1 (great news, first pre-releases are out already) and we hope if all the puzzle pieces work together that we're ready for a beta test.
    Note: These puzzle bits are worlds working together, plugins working together, the worlds and the plugins working together, .. etc.

    - The '1MB Trade' feature got updated for better 1.15.0 support (and bug fixes for 1.13.2)
    Note: this is the /trade command (please go test it!)

    - You can now type: /display, and hit a chest, this will mark your owned chest as a display chest as well. Others can peek inside, but can not add or take from it.

    - The '1MB Core' features have been updated for better 1.15.0 support (and maintenance for 1.13.2)
    Note: this is nearly 300 commands, woop woop

    - The '1MB Mobs' control features have been bug fixed, and 1.15.0 support has been introduced, upgrading should go smoother when we get there.

    - The '1MB Worlds' region stuff like world borders and region control, has received small updates for performance improvements and bug fix-reasons.

    - The '1MB Exp' feature has been updated to support 1.15.0, and fixed a few issues on 1.13.2.

    - The '1MB Achievements' features received better 1.14.4 and 1.15.0 support, and has improved performance on 1.13.2
    Note: Please test! This is the /achievements command (and related stuff)

    - The '1MB Market' has received bug fixes. Including the Discord integration and gained support for the upcoming 1.15.0 release.
    Note: Please test! This is the /market (/ah sell etc) stuff.

    - The '1MB Menu' received an update, erhm, fingers crossed this will go well. Tests showed it was all okay, sorta.. eyh, we will see.

    - The '1MB Perks' features have been updated, including a few things from /points. This is mostly used for internal use. And has now gained 1.14.4 and 1.15.0 support.

    - The '1MB Perks' features like just mentioned, has now improved cosmetics support. Less buggy on 1.13.2 and initial support for 1.14.4 and 1.15.0.
    Note: This is the /perk command, among a few other things. Does it still work for you?

    - Purged rollback and lookup data up until April 1st, 2018.
    Note: Every once in a while we tweak this, add a few more weeks or months.
    Note: If you come online and check your homes, bases, builds, etc and find grief, report it.
    Note: Made something pretty? Ask for region protection.
    Note: We think it's reasonable at the moment that someone reports a grief within 1,5 years and otherwise it's just tough luck (should have been more active)

    - The '1MB Heads' database has been updated for the holiday season, and should perform better on 1.13.2 and has received support for 1.15.0

    - Updated Charlie the Pinata to understand we're going to 1.15.0, so he better learn some new moves!
    Note: This is related to /warp charlie, and /charlie.

    - The '1MB Vote' features have been updated, and support for 1.15.0 has been introduced. Upgrading will hopefully go now without potential data loss.

    - Some '1MB Worlds' management features have been improved, such as /builders, and admin-editing tools. No 1.15.0 support yet, but massively improve 1.14.4 support now, and bug fixes and more bug fixes.


    We're not sitting still, we're still here. And we're still testing and converting and upgrading. It's a process. We're waiting for developers to have time and upgrade, we're waiting for bug reports to get resolved, we're waiting to find free offline time to get online and continue testing.

    So enjoy the server as it is now, the holiday season. Have fun hoarding resources, building awesome stuff together, and participating in the various events we spontaneously have. We do silly holiday things every day or so.

    Headsup: Important information about Donations and 1.15.x support.

    - General maintenance to the 1MB Server.

    - Restarted the server to free up memory and activate queued updates.

    - Updated some plugins to better support material names from 1.14.4 and up.

    - Updated protocol support so players can connect from 1.15.1 and down to our 1.13.2 server.

    - Updated a bunch of plugins that now support 1.15.1 (but still support 1.13.2)

    - Kept any plugin that complained "there is an update available" up to date, so they stop whining.

    - Updated the /santa area, advent boxes are almost ready for Christmas Eve. Stay tuned.

    - Triple Exp event is still going. The last one this year! Use it while you can.

    - Headsup: mcMMO will change in 2020. Fingers crossed. More details and news early 2020.

    - Headsup: Fishing will change in 2020. Fingers crossed. More details and news early 2020.

    - Mini games will discontinue in 2020. They were kept after events, like tic tac toe and walk the plank, these will be removed early 2020.

    - Headsup: We've passed the 50% point in our upgrade to 1.15.1, this simply means we've had success converting worlds, and are at the step where we try to have them work together. And that we've upgraded the most important plugins, and are at the point where we try to have them work together. After that, we beta test and/or go live.

    - Headsup: Donations to OMG / 1MB / MRF in 2020 will be 'as is', meaning donations are still welcome if you know my PayPal address, but they will be as is, and won't get linked to group/rank/role updates.
    Note: If you wish to be blue on discord and/or in the game, and marked as donator on the forums; you can still get this before December 31st. You can still become part of this exclusive blue club.
    Note: If you already donated in the past, you will keep your blue role, perks, etc. Nothing changes for you. Consider yourself part of an exclusive club.
    Note: if you donate in 2020 or later, you won't get a role/rank/group update on discord, forums or in-game.
    Note: Donations are always welcome, they help keep things moving forward and online.

    On behalf of everybody involved with running the forums, the game servers, and discord servers:

    We wish you a Merry Christmas, and hope everybody has a wonderful Holiday Season.

    The 1MB Team wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season.

    - 22nd: Yesterday's advent window has closed.

    - 23rd: Today's Advent Calendar window has opened.

    - 24th: Christmas Eve, the last day of the Advent Calendar.

    - Note: If you have collected all 24 giftbags, you're eligible for a day 25 bonus giftbag. Contact Floris in-game before December 31st.

    - Note: If you have changed your Skin this month to a Holiday Season themes skin, you're eligible for a Christmas Skin bonus giftbag. Contact Floris in-game before December 31st.

    - 25th: Christmas Morning: If you've played enough actively in December, chances are there's some Christmas Gifts for you below the Christmas tree in a chest that has your name on it. This chest will be accessible on the 25th at some point. And remains open for no more than a couple of days. If you've played this month and can't find a chest with your name on it, it might have slipped through the cracks, contact mrfloris before December 26th.

    - 1.15.x support: Despite discouraging news from many busy-server owners that performance is basically as terrible as 1.14.4, we're pushing forward with our converts, upgrades, updates, and (beta) testing. Once the magical Christmas dust has settled down we're picking this 1.15 project back up again.

    - Sidenote: Anything Christmas related ends on December 31st 100%, plugins will uninstall right after Christmas, features will stop working a few days later. Exchange4Giftbag options expire on the 31st, stuff like that.

    It's been rather wonderful to spend all this time with everybody that played in 2019 and have enjoyed the server. We're excited to step into 2020, our 9th year.

    If you wish to support us and become part of an exclusive 'blue club' of donators, please consider a PayPal donation before December 31st, as the option to become blue expires on January 1st 2020.

    - It was the day before Christmas.. sorta. Depending on which timezone I guess. And because of that, and people visiting family. We start the last part of the event 'now'.

    - Four give-aways on Discord, new channels are created for season's greetings, go crazy in there! Share the love, say hi to a friend.

    - And a give-away channel is made public where you can read carefully and then participate on all four give-aways.

    There's some fun stuff to do! Don't miss out.

    We just @tagged everyone on Discord, and will do so again tomorrow. Juuust to make sure everybody had a fair change to hear about it.

    Upcoming changes that we won't post: Restart of the server, removing some of the Christmas plugins, and preparing for 1.15.x and probably some bug fixes and general maintenance to the servers.

    This is the last changelog update for this year. We're going to enjoy the holiday season now and start a new changelog in 2020. Don't forget to subscribe to it when we post it.

    See you all on Discord, on the forums, and in-game. The year's not over yet!

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year <3
