We will be using this thread moving forward for 2023.

Thank you all for keeping track of what is going on with the 1MoreBlock.com Minecraft server in previous years. We're going to continue this in 2023 one way or another.

You can find the older 2022 thread here: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-changelog-2022.263788/

December 31st, 2022:

The end of the 2022 events, and the start of 1MB 3.2.10 on Minecraft 1.19.3

- Shutting the server down for 1MB 3.2.9, with Minecraft 1.19.2

- Manually backing up the full server directory and all databases, alongside the automated one

- Manually moving the made backup to the external drive as a final backup for 1MB 3.2.9, with Minecraft 1.19.2, for 2022.

- Merging all -dev- servers (the parts that were successful during testing) to the -test- servers.

- Purged all -dev- servers, and preparing a new -dev- server for 1MB 3.2.10, with Minecraft 1.19.3

- Merged all -test- servers (the parts that were successful during testing with live data) to the new -test- environment.

- Creating a new -live- data clone to the new -test- environment for final testing

- Creating a new -live- environment in preparation of a successful upgrade from 1MB 3.2.9 to 1MB 3.2.10, with Minecraft 1.19.3 for 2023.

- Cleaning up the ・server-chat channel.

- Slightly updated the ・schedule channel so it's more up to date and ready for 2023.

- Updated the ・events channel to let everybody know the December Christmas Event has now ended.

- Removed The456Gamer from the team until they have time again to be more active more frequently. Thank you so much for everything you've done so far. You're an awesome person, hopefully you get loads of free time and come back.

- Moved the internal "logging" of Discord, Minecraft, Github and Mojira to it's own category (easier for the team members)

- Split up some of the internal "team" channels into their own category with multiple channels (easier for the team members)

- Closed and deleted some older/stale/finished ・ticket-support player-made tickets. At any time, please feel free to open a ticket with the staff if you have questions!

- Started to use the ・hype channel for publishing media content. Moving it out of the other channels. Throughout 2023 we will make more changes to improve on this.

- Cleaned up the ・announcements channel. Keeping the more accurate and current or important bits of info.

- We officially have removed schematica and litematica off of our lists, it IS now (unofficially) allowed. Note please that auto-placing blocks or 'printing' is 100% automation and results in a perm-ban.

- Purged 8 million records of rollback data from the databases. We have the data backed up, but we won't have access to it on the -live- servers. This data was data older than 40 weeks. We try to guarantee up to 6 months of rollback data - assuming players who care about their builds check it at least twice a year. The next purge is scheduled for January, which will be 38+ weeks and over. Likely another 3 million records. So please check your builds, report grief within a timeline manner and we can review it. If you are an active player and worry about your pretty base, reach out to me and I can region protect it, then grief is not possible.

- Updating the Operating Systems and Firmwares on the devices the server(s) run on and restarting accordingly, reviewing network settings afterwards.

- Updated JVM packages to jdk-19.0.1.jdk latest release.

- Purged JVM builds for 19.x that were not that build.

- Purged JVM builds for 11.x, 16.x, 17.x that weren't the latest. Kept latest.

- Purged Caches and Logs on Routers, Bridges, Modems, Switches, and OS devices.

- Purging Trash bins .. since it has 173 gb

- Backed and removed up the Christmas plugins.

- Made sure the Thanksgiving/ world no longer autoLoads when we start the server. (keeping santa until I force move players).

- Backed up the inventory logs backup-InventorySaver-sqllite-from nov 27th 2022 to December 31st, 2022.db

- Started a new inventory logs database

- Purged the oldest backup from the -live- server backup-InventorySaver-sqllite-from november 12th 2022 to nov 27th 2022.db

- Are you in the group BUILDER or higher, do we have a surprise for you. Check out the /builders world in /letmebuild (creative mode) .. You will notice a fancy newly organized creative menu in 1.19.3

- The /wild worldborder has been expanded from 5000 to 7500, offering a 15,000 wide (on all sides) world, with loads of new untouched and ungenerated chunks to explore and build bases on.
Here's a little video to show just a couple of them -
View: https://youtu.be/Xx--OcKfn58


- **The */points* shop is taken offline**, but shall return. You can still collect points.
2023 point system:
* pointy fish when eaten still give the same amount of points and this wont change.
* joining default points is brought down from 3 to 2.
* first time of the day bonus points are brought down from 6 to 5.
* Bonus now stacks on top of what you get, so first greeting actually earns you 7 now total.
* For now, points earned by voting remain the same, this might change.
* The legacy 2022 items from the shop will return, some point values might slightly change, if so, we will inform you in the changelog
* The new 2023 items from the shop will be listed in various categories for easy finding.
* suggestions for points? open a new #・ticket-support and post your suggestion(s) this IS the time to do that.
More about this update soon.

- Given the top 3 richest Discord-coin users an extra 50,000 coins for their hard work in 2022 grinding those coins. Go spend them!
If you also want to earn Discord-coins to save up for some fun Discord/Minecraft items you can exchange them for, then check out #・discord-coins 's pinned msgs.

- Please note that in 2022 we've had a #・polls requesting if the community wanted to have /back AND /dback (death back), the response was overwhelming. It's now 2023, and all players have /dback added as a command.
If you die, your /back might bring you to your previous teleported location that might not be the death one. To go back to where you died last in the game, even if you have teleported around a few times, you can use /dback.
For now, there's no cooldown and/or warmup added, this might change in the (near) future.

- Players who haven't been on the server in over two years, will no longer show in the top for playertime, nor baltop. The playtime top shows in a hologram at /spawn somewhere. And the balance top can be viewed by typing /baltop.

We actually really want to focus on active players, so this is one of a few steps to achieve that. Last year we're started purging perm banned (without option to appeal) players from certain top lists. This year we started purging 0 level users and inactive for x years from mcMMO, next could be Jobs. But for now, we're going to set (at least visually) inactive players to not show in balance-, and player top lists.

Once they re-join and become active, their OLD values will of course still be there and continue to update. And they start showing again. We had an overwhelming yes vote on this in #・polls in 2022, and now in 2023 this is active.

The period is set to 730 days (2 years). But this might change in the future.

- Snowman trails should appear on the next server restart in /general and /wild in the `_global_` region (you can check with /here). The global world protection flag is also set from true to false (and will no longer disable this unless a region flag specifically controls it). This is a result from the community voting in #・polls

- The community voted in #・polls to keep certain other settings and features as they currently are, so no changes there. But i've still reviewed them. Making sure it's currently as we want. New polls coming in 2023 !!

- Cleaned up the polls channel.

- Another Winter Update 2022 change (yes, winter continues in 2023) .. SCULK GROWTH
Please note that the global setting for sculk growth prevention is changed from true to false, allowing sculk to grow and spread in all regions, except where it's specifically disabled.
- In the /general world, the `_global_` region does not allow Sculk growth.
- In the /wild world, the `_global_` region does not allow Sculk growth.
- Note that in other regions that means it can grow. If it doesn't in Your owned region(s), but you specifically want it to, please feel free to reach out to us and request the flag to be set to true.

- Update; Owners of their own region can type /here, and then click region flags, and toggle allow|deny for the Sculk-Growth flag.

- Uninstalled the old /points shop

- Installed the new /points pro shop

- Users from old shop have been imported into the new shop, except for users with 0 points.

- Default /points opening gui has been created, with a legacy category that's next to be configured so we have at least the old items.

- The alias /points has been updated to not run the gui shop, but instead it now says that the shop is temporarily closed.

- Made a start for trying to simplify / automate announcing player-group changes.

- Updated the PyroFishingPro plugin to fix the crabmas disabling.

- Inactive players will no longer show in the top for playtime. Upped from 0 to 730. (2 years)

- Inactive players will no longer show in the top for balance. Upped from 0 to 730. (2 years)

- disable-snowman-trails: false is now active, changed from true to false.

- Checked /general, made sure in `_global_` it's set to ALLOW for the flag

- Checked /wild, made sure in `_global_` it's set to ALLOW for the flag

- For now, ignoring all other worlds, assuming the global setting from true to false will inherit. Based on player-feedback we can tweak live through /here > flags > page 2.

- We can now finally roll-back sculk grief.

- The /points gui has been updated to be at least working. The items for sale are set to enabled: false, so I can test as admin, but players can't accidentally 'waste' their items if they find out they can use /welcomes shop, over /points.

- The /points menu button now work, the economy prints the placeholder ingame, the back to /menu now opens it as a console command to run "/menu", and the more info now opens the cmi ctext points txt file as a book. It has some basic info - which we need to expand on (but that's another todo item).

- The CMI repo on my mrfdev github page has been bumped to the now live version.

- Updated the Discord !event command

- Updated the Discord !ip command

- Updated the Discord !staff command

- Owners of their own region can type /here, and then click region flags, and toggle allow|deny for the Sculk-Growth flag.

- Purged all older 3.2.9.x backups from the offsite backup solution. Except of course the last one.

- Made a manual backup of the current 3.2.10 -live- server

- Purged the -test- servers I made to help upgrade from 1.19.2 to 1.19.3

- Reported exception errors and plugin issues from 1.19.3 to developers, they're look into solutions.

- Updated the /fish plugin, it had some more bugfixes.

- Moved all the 2022 files from /logs/ into /logs/_2022/ and purged all the logs older than 2022-06-01 (so we only have six months of server log data on the live server) Note that older backups probably have older logs (for now)

- Moved all the 2021 files from /plugins/cmi/moneylogs/ into /plugins/cmi/moneylogs/_2021, and did the same for 2022. We will review 2021 one more time and then purging the whole of 2021.

- Moved all the 2021 files from /plugins/cmi/selllogs/ into /plugins/cmi/selllogs/_2021, and did the same for 2022. We will review 2021 one more time and then purging the whole of 2021.

- Purged the content of #server-chat

- Updated the chunks in /easter/ world to 1.19.3 and found no issues, exported the world, and archived it. Unloading it from the server on start. Purged the older backups of this world that I could find. (offsite backups still have a copy)

Announcement: EPIC slots unlocking this January! More info on Discord in the Announcements channel soon!

- The /perk command is updated to 1.19.3

- The /points shop is still offline, we're still re-adding the legacy items (and testing them).
Note: You still collect points, and your old balance is still there, don't worry.

- Updated the 1MB Tip from '11+ years in 2022' to '12+ years in 2023'

- There was a broken placeholder in the chat's hover-tooltip, I've updated this now.

- An internal Discord channel where we log changes to the discord server was archived, and now we're using the new 2023 one.

- An internal Discord "private tickets" category now logs to the new internal channel.

- And the public "support tickets" category logs go there now as well.

- The internal Discord "Minecraft watching" channel is now archived, and a new one for 2023 is created.

- Plugins have been changed to point to correct DIscord channels.

- Updated the vote-server website profiles, trying to make it say 1.19.3 where possible.

- Notice on omgboards.com (like here <https://omgboards.com/forums/minecraft/>) updated to .3

- CMI updated to latest version, fixing:
Note: {
Fix for issue with 1.19.3 servers dropping and placing pig spawner when trying to break or place empty spawner. Now it will properly return (if needed) empty spawner
Fix for issue with scavenge returning gold pickaxe as a scavenge ingredient return after salvaging goldnuggets, now it should properly return gold bars with varied amounts depending on your config setup
Added ironugget and goldnugget to default black list for scavenge feature to avoid issues and those items should not be salvageable anyways.
Added option to hide login/logout messages from players with possible offensive text in them or any text you might want to define as undesired. This is disabled by default and can be found in config file under Messages->filter section
Fix for tfly and worldchanging issue
Added option to ignore player in afk mode looking around and taking him from it. This can prevent from players using scripts/mods to move camera and bypass afk detection system
Now by default toggling sneak will not turn off afk mode
Added option to disable kit preview in general.
Added additional variables as "on" and "off" for /sit command which can help out to properly put player into specific sitting mode when needed instead of toggling between those
Added new variable for /shakeitoff command which now supports player name and -s variable. If player name is used then target player will not only lose his passengers but be ejected from his current vehicle too
}

- The NPC related plugins have all been updated to better support 1.19.3

- The world editing related plugins have all been updated to their latest 1.19.3 builds.

- We've bumped the snapshot of Discord <-> Minecraft integration plugins to be more current.

- Known issue: When you vote the 'points' you earn are now showing, we're fixing that pretty soon.

- Purged the content of the Discord internal Mojang-JIRA channel (after review)

- The lootbox for /charlie is back! Both of them actually. And hopefully we will soon add a third one for 2023.
Note: /charlie as command, will show you how many votes are needed to spawn charlie the pinata.
Note: /warp charlie is where you can find charlie. If they're active you will notice it! Hit it until you defeat it, for some fun little rewards.
Note: If you see a bossbar saying 'pinata hits left', that means charlie has spawned.
Note: If you defeat charlie, the lootboxes show up again. raid them!

- Took the server offline for maintenance a few times, nobody notices, sssh

- Made a new latest backup locally (just in case)

- Purged the /libraries/ directory, letting it rebuild with latest engines.

- Purged some outdated debug files from /debug/

- Removed the /caches/ directory, it can rebuild the jars

- Removed /santa/ and /easter/ after making sure i have a .zip backed up from it.

- Cleaned up a few settings, making sure there's no weird chars like tabs/spaces left here and there. ('lr)

- Oneblock dancers will notice that their saplings and crops, vines and other things will properly grow now. Try it out.

- Moved internal /maintenance command into its own customalias/ file on GitHub for dev reasons. It's kinda broken and needs some love. Fixing the custom maintenance command a team tasks thread has been created, let's see if we can figure this out within this month.

- Reviewed #team-2022 archived channel and made sure the missed changelogs entries are in todays public changelog as well.

This, and quite some other tiny little bits and bops that I've worked on taken up quite some time. But it helps us be more stable, be more organized, and gives you a better gaming experience. Onwards to the next batch of todo items! Oh yeah, ew have hundreds of them.

You find it awesome what we do? Exellent, you can support the server by playing, inviting your friends, changing your signature on forums that you play on our server, or maybe /vote for our server, or even consider a Paypal donation. But most importantly: just have fun. That's why we run the server.

See you in the next one. And don't forget, EPIC slot(s) will soon unlock, don't miss out if you're interested.

Gametype update 1 of 2.

- Gametypes are: /cave, /acid, /skygrid, /skyblock, and /oneblock. - Some changes affect all gametypes, some only one or two.

- Skyblock islands biome unlocks will be recalculated. If you login it will let you know. You can go to /skyblock and click on the links to unlock or change biomes. This is handy if you want a snow-only biome for example. It's not cheap! But .. it's fun if you really need it.
Known issue: It tells you even if you are in /wild, I know, I'm sorry.

- Gametype Challenges have been rebuild, it's possible there are some new ones, updates one, or impossible ones. Concerns? by all means let us know.

- Witchery! Yes, you can be a witch, buy a magic stick with /oneblock witchery for example, and learn the recipes. Then get the cauldron just right, and throw in the ingredients. Put the main item in your offhand, and hit the cauldron with your right-hand. This is our 2nd version, so it's possible and likely there are some issues. That said: read /witchery first, before opening a ticket. But feel free to open a ticket for any questions.

- This and many more improvements, bug fixes, etc for bentobox are live on 1.19.3 now.

- Moved a few more discord integration embeds from older channels to their latest newer channels on Discord.

- Updated DiscordSRV alerts.yml one more time for a few other legacy logging things, triggering embeds to different channels. Slightly updating things.

- Restored headsDisplay plugin, we use this to have fancy banner stuff at the spawn points as if we can write in fancy blocks.

- Removed .patch from 1MB as they're in paper now, and better. And upstream is taken care of.

- Bumped paper to build 370, their current latest.

- Updated /cave a bit, should be more fun.

- Known issue with the bentobox update: the island "settings" command fails at the moment, we're working on it.

- the thread on the forum for /witchery is updated

- New forum content is being published in a special Discord channel now (internal channel).

- The Jobs plugins got updated. We can do more with quests now, hopefully we can soon add a few more.

- Fishing exploiting with Jobs has been looked at. *stares at cheaters*

- VeronicaB noticed that we can't rename gold nuggets, this has now been resolved. Rename away!

- MrCrazy is working hard on one of our internal commands, so a special thanks to him.

- Updated some mentions of "2022" to "2023" as I run into them, there are probably a few more.

- Deleted closed tickets on Discord's #ticket-support.

- Closed completed tickets on Discords' #ticket-support.

- Reviewed still outstanding tickets, and trying to schedule in time to work on them. I want to help everybody!

- Enabled Double Exp for mcMMO for a handful of hours, because we had 14 people online.

- The server max-players was 12 or 16, bumped to 18 or 20, I am sure it will automatically go lower again to 16 or 18. Thank you all for playing!

Winter Update #2: Gametypes update, and Points shop update

- Updated 1MB from 3.2.10 to 3.2.11, finishing the batch of maintenance that was still pending, (these will be published in a separate changelog, and you can read the ones already published to see what's all done in the first week of the year).

- Upgraded the /points shop thanks to PyroTempus developer to PyroWelcomesPro. Giving us the features we always wanted, and preparing us for letting users in the gametype islands use their points a bit more.

- Upgraded the gametypes plugins to their latest builds, fully introducing the new feature updates to dancing near trees (and now crops!) and updating the biome of skyblock islands, some changes to island challenges, and more. They are getting us closer to a 1.19.x experience. This is batch update 1 of 2 or more.

- Updated the History thread of the server
Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-history.260949/

- This completes the Winter Update 2022 for December (batch or part 1) 100%. Whatever is unfinished from that, those are future todo items (when there's time).

- This completed the Winter Update 2022 for January (part 2) for about 50%, and made room / prepared us for the next batch of things (maintenance todo items wise). At the same time, giving us time for bigger todo items of part 3. (oh why is this so complicated).

There are more changes that happened, they will be published in a separate changelog.

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance, it never stops :-)

- Moved some of our internal -test- solutions to a remote VPS for better access/sharing with (certain) staff members.

- Updated some shell scripts on my Github repository.

- The BentoBox plugins got updated, this is like a dozen of jar files. We use these for the 1MB Gametypes like /acid, /cave, /skygrid, /skyblock, and /oneblock.
Note: This fixed the "/<gametype> settings" not working for your island.

- Updating the "/<gametype> biomes" addon so it should work better now.

- The new version of the Jobs plugin is now live!

- The plugins we use for permission management have been updated to better support newer database stuff and 1.19.3.

- The NPC related plugins have been updated.
Note: This is great, because we want to use them for /warp vote and /warp charlie in the (near) future. For example, for trading vote tokens for things.

- There was an annoying 'biome unlock' notification for certain players, we've turned this off. You can check and unlock and use via the gametype biomes command.

- Prices of biomes have all been set to 10,000 /money

- We had to temporarily turn off /trade, it's back now. Sorry about that. Hopefully it's the last time. Note that we now have in-depth logging, any abuse through /trade will result in your and your traded users to get their account sanctioned. Play fair.

- We had a temporary /trade command, this command has now been removed and the regular /trade works again.

- The server engine Paper had a bunch of Bukkit/Spigot upstream and other patches, we've bumped our build to 375, for 1.19.3.

- We've improved our custom 1MB patches to help teleporting between dimensions and worlds, and players, to all be a bit snappier. The same changes are being live tested for logging in. While most not notice, some people with lag might notice a slight improvement and people with very little lag will feel like they're playing on their localhost. Every bit helps, right?

- There was a glitch with saplings glitching out after blocks were told they have respawned, after hitting the server with a few sticks it seems those reports have stopped. So I hope that resolves that. Not much more we can do to fix this if it happens. It's a lifetime old Mojang bug.

- Voting for a site would tell you you earned a point outside of the reward box, we've addressed this (thanks pyro) and that shouldn't happen anymore. You still get the +1 point of course, but now hover over the reward box msg and you see what voting has given you.

- The new Welcome plugin by Pyro has been bumped to the latest version, this is an internal build that people can't buy yet. So huge thanks for Pyro for updating it and making us a 'points' plugin that we're happier with.

- The server has been restarted on a nearly daily basis to update and upgrade and activate the maintenance stuff mentioned in this changelog - in the last week.

- The /points shop is back! You can find the legacy items in the legacy category, and you can get a sample of categories by opening the shop now. Expect more! Including converting points from Jobs to /points balance, or start a double exp booster for mcMMO using your points. All sorts of goodies are coming.

- The amount of points something costs (the price) is now shown before buying, on all items.

- There is now a confirmation button, so you accidentally click on something? Now you have the option to cancel your purchase, phew!

- And the chat will now properly mention what you just spent your points on, how many points, and how much you have left in your points balance.

- The points shop has a new custom unique look that makes it a bit more modern and inline with the /homes and /warps and /kits menus that we have. Like the black border, use of modern hex colors, and easy to find information buttons that explain features.

- The World Editing plugins like FAWE have been updated to their latest builds.

- There were updates for the legacy protocol support plugins like ViaVersion - we've updated these.
Note: You can't talk if you are not on 1.19.3.
Note: You can get the official launcher by Mojang and default vanilla client for 1.19.3, and play on 1.19.3. While we're fine with unofficial launchers and clients connecting to our server, we're not responsible for them. So please note that if they don't update you can't play and our staff will have to suggest you to resolve that by using official clients to connect.
Note: Soon we will remove support for older versions, now that we run stable on 1.19.3. We are in no rush to do this, but please prepare for this.

- The World Protection plugins have been updated. Such as worldguard. Region management should be a bit snappier.

- Some players reported that 'adding' points wasn't working, we tracked who were affected and manually added their missed points to their balance. Thank you for reporting.

- Found some extra jar files floating around in directories they shouldn't have been, some copy paste has gone wrong. Fixed!

- The prefix for 1MB Member group went from legacy yellow to modern hex {#fadc64}.

- We can now log /points purchases! They're in a .log file which we will review once in a while.

- There was a pesky bonus reward in the /vote GUI showing up, I finally deep dived into the related plugins and figured out why it kept coming back. Hit it with some emeralds and sticks and it seems to have disappeared. Thank you Citebafla for reminding me to dedicate some time to resolve this.
Note: To clarify, we have six votes, we still have six, we had a 7th one showing up that we didn't want showing up (nobody can use it).

- I've removed more nameplate prefixes from previous events as I saw players join with them.

- I've removed more prefixes from nicknames from Discord now that those events are over.

- We backup inventory changes constantly. We have logs of these in .db files, and they're gigabytes in size. If we have no player reports of inventory issues we archive the live one, purge the oldest one. And start fresh, I've just done that again this week.

- Some plugins that we use for the /builders world have been updated.

- 1MB 3.2.11 is live now, so the signs at /spawn have been updated to reflect the current versions.

- 1MB 3.2.11 is to end the Winter update 1 and 2 batch, and help us start the third one - maintenance updates!

- Updated the history thread: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-history.260949/

- Composters are auto locked, and they wouldn't take certain input. this has now been fixed. Should work again.

- Reviewed and purged the Discord internal channel #logs-minecraft

- I've reset a few raided cities in the end, and I've generated a handful of new ones randomly.

- I've regenerated some raided npc villages in the /wild.

- server restarted since we've done some regeneration and light fixing and other chunk stuff, i rather flush to disk properly and start fresh, free up some memory and avoid potential corruption.

- The last Christmas event : /fish events crabmas. : has now officially ended. We've updated the plugin and it's past the 11th of Jan, so that's over - and known bug fixes for pfp are live now too. The update also comes with improvements to the tournaments, so we're now ready to start configuring those and make them go live a few times per week, and rotate between the tournament types. Rewards will obviously be updated to something more than 500 entropy.

This any loads of player-help in-game and behind-the-scenes tiny config tweaks, and preparations and hours of testing before making changes go live .. is what keeps us going on a daily basis. Thank you for being part of it and reading this. As a reward for reading the changelog you can get a beacon, all you have to do is login during January and type " /mail send MrFloris beacon plz 0924ir0924ri2e "

See you all online.

How's 2023 for everybody?

- Took the server offline for some maintenance, including purging cache/temp/trashbin and other dirs.

- Archived the latest manually made backup, and organized what we have now.

- Created a new manual backup.

- Paper (the server engine we use) has been updated to the latest build)

- The archived and newly made backups have been moved to their final location.

- Very old archived backups that have the same data but are now useless, have been purged.

- Reviewed local drive space, making sure we have the size of the live server, times two at least, in free space.

- Reviewed the player actions for x-ray, dupe, auto fishing, etc. And have flagged some accounts for a second opinion. Please play fair, don't ruin it for yourself.

- The internal logs-minecraft discord channel has been cleaned up after a review.

- The rollback database that we use to fix grief has had a data purge again. Everything over week 38 has been deleted. We try to guarantee up to 26 weeks, so the next purge is later this month and will be 35+ weeks.

- The greenhouses addon for skyblock and oneblock might not work as expected. we're looking into this.

- Discord <-> Minecraft integration related plugins have been updated to their latest snapshot.

- The /builders world allows lava-, and water buckets again. Sorry for the delay.

- We've opened up /rtp in /nether again to support all biomes, please be safe.

And that's it for now, we're having an easy week, I am taking it easy because it's my birthday soon (21st).

- EPIC SLOTS are now available. More info here: https://omgboards.com/threads/group-epic-open.261864/

- Perhaps temporarily as a test, the global simulation distance for world rendering around you has been changed from 8 to 10. Let's see how that performs.

- Paper had a few patches, we've applied them.

- Latest 1MB 3.2.11 code is now live. Fixing a few annoying little exception errors.

- The /sell output might have slightly changed to give more information.

- The CMI plugin has been updated to the latest version. Fixing a dozen little bugs.

And that's about it for the last few days. We're very happy to see so many regular faces on the server. Don't forget you can invite your friends

Birthday update!

- It's my birthday today, and I am telling everybody haha. Thank you for playing today!

- Let's celebrate my birthday by opening up the EPIC SLOTS for $46, because I turn 46.
Note: More info on Discord in #announcements, and this thread:
Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/group-epic-open.261864/

- Boosters for mcMMO are set to 2x this weekend, and on the 21st they will go up to 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, randomly for a few hours.

- CMI has been updated, fixing a few tiny things.

- The NPC plugins have been updated.

- Discord integration has improved a bit. I've also forced a resync of all roles. So double-check ^_^

- Cleaned up the #server-chat channel, so it's all birthday chat this weekend.

- Reviewed players' signs, books, and messages from #logs-minecraft, an internal Discord channel. And looks like nobody spammed or used hate speech, that's awesome because we're a family-friendly community. You're all awesome.
Note: Content purged after review.

- We've purged very inactive 30+ days no-role accounts from our Discord server, assuming they are spam bots. People are free to join, and to avoid a kick, be active, it gives you a role and you won't get purged.

- The on join msg for the mc server (also visible in /motd) has been changed for my birthday / epic roles stuff.

- EPIC roles had a few heads-ups and now published all the info in the thread and the discord, and on join msg, even posted about it on twitter.

- The thread on the forum about epic group and donators have been updated to be more current.

- Donations threshold to get the group/role was $39, lowered to $35, life's expensive enough as it is.

- Donations received from TheLynx74, you're awesome.

- Donations for the epic group update received from JackPerByte (slot 6), NikkiPixel (slot 7), Vubbo (slot 8). Thank you all so so so much.

- Support for old clients connecting to 1.19.3 has improved, a bit. We do strongly recommend to use 1.19.3
Note: We will eventually remove support for old clients. Please do update!

- World editing and World guarding plugins have been bumped to their latest snapshots.

- Nasty bugs with /trade have been fixed.

And I am sure we will have more to report, but that will have to wait until the next changelog.

Gametype updates! Mainly oneblock

- I think some issues with the gametypes addon "greenhouse" are now resolved.

- The /oneblock phases have been rebuild, your progress is not lost, and will be automatically calculated the next time you break a block.

- Going from plains phase to underground is now 700, going from underground to winter is now 1300. Every other phase that was below 1000 is now set to 1000, and the same for any that were higher than 1000 levels to progress, they're 1000 too now.

- Added deep dark phase.

- Goats, frogs, warden (though I can't get it to spawn), are all added.

- I've made sure any customization we had to existing phases are still there.

- Some changes to the gametype Skygrid

- In all gametypes, Teleportation was processed for entities even if it was switched off

- Some fixes to the /gametype warps, like /oneblock warp, /oneblock warps, etc.

- Some more fixes to the addon biomes.

- The /oneblock spawn's main building has an attic, with shops, we now have added the elytra shop chest.

- The daily shop at the gametype spawns like /oneblock spawn, have had a couple of days changed.

- If you spot a wandering trader, don't kill it.. Instead, right click it and see what micro-blocks it has to offer you in any gametype world, this includes skyblock, oneblock, cave, etc.

- The /oneblock generator has sand in it now, a 1 to 3% chance in all stone generator types.

- The level to get to the /oneblock diamond generator has been lowered from 5000 to 2500 island levels. Type /oneblock level to recalculate your island and see if you can unlock it now.

- The level to get to the /oneblock emerald generator has been lowered from 10000 to 4500 island levels. Type /oneblock level to recalculate your island and see if you can unlock it now.

- Limits to gametypes, like /oneblock limits have been increased for redstone elements, here are the new values:
Note: {
HOPPER: 36
DROPPER: 18
DISPENSER: 18
FURNACE: 10
BLAST_FURNACE: 10
SMOKER: 10
OBSERVER: 18
PISTON: 30
STICKY_PISTON: 30
BEACON: 6
SPAWNER: 4
REPEATER: 36
}

- Okay, some STAFF NEWS, so if you once were or are currently a staff member, check out the #staff-hangout channel on Discord, it has an invite to get a physical card in the mail. You have until the 7th of February to DM me if you are interested or not. Plus, it lets me know you didn't mute the discord server and lost interest in being on the team, by not reading team tags. Don't miss out on a cool unique card signed by me.

- Okay, next is some EPIC GROUP NEWS, the slots are now locked until 2024, and we've got 4 new additions, I've started adding their custom worlds. There's now /jackper, /vubbo, and /pixelasia. Players can explore these small words, and jack, vubbo and nikki can completely control their own little world. Show off your creative build skills! And if you need a world dl as a .zip file, just let me know.

- I didn't have time yet to make the custom fish, it will come with the next /fish update hopefully.

- Talking about groups, here's some GROUP NEWS.

- I've rewritten this thread about groups: https://omgboards.com/threads/groups-ranks.260941/

- updated the /ranks command to point to /groups now

- updated the /groups command to point to the thread on the forum now

- updated the ranks.txt file that's now deprecated to say 'moved to thread...'

- /motd and /account (which is page 2 of /motd) was using the old points placeholder, that's now fixed

- For now, sub-group id 11 is the Veteran group, inheriting from rogue, the highest player-obtainable group.
Note: You read this correctly, VETERAN GROUP !! We're slowly introducing this, step by step.

- Reviewed all players in all groups, making sure there's no overlap, that there aren't people stuck in god mode, fly mode, creative mode.

- Players in the builders group and up can now use /survival, to reset their creative mode in the same world to survival, without having to go to /general or /spawn first and then /back.

- Updated this thread to be more current, https://omgboards.com/threads/server-details-1moreblock-com-25565.260939/

- Before I go to Discord news, here are some other maintenance thingies that I worked on.

- [TAB] updated to say 12+ instead of 10 for the /celebration mention.

- Updated CMI
Note: {
Fix for anvil command on older servers
Fix for issue with command cooldowns when you have different ones for something like "/cmi repair" and "/cmi repair all"
Fix for placeholder error for player playtime stats inside holograms
Fix for onoff message still indicating vanish player as online when you cant see him
Fix for inv command showing empty fields for cursor and crafting fields while player is in vanish mode, these need to be disabled in same way we have them while player is offline
Fix for inv command showing decreasing potions effect timers for vanished players.
Fix for exploit relating to miss configuration of BungeeNetwork and having bungee support enabled
}

- bukkit patches applied to 1mb 3.2.12

- paper latest build runs live on the server, with a tiny .patch applied and recompiled

- latest 1mb 3.2.12 is there now, removed 2 deprecated java thingies and made sure the new code indeed works on java 19.0.2

- manually backed up the server, flushed all automated backups from 2022. we only have manually made backup snapshots as history now.

- /baltop has been fixed, server restarted

- Okay, DISCORD NEWS is next

- archived the feature-forms discord channel

- moved rules channel above welcomes channel

- fixed typo in channel topic somewhere on discord

- category voice chat removed, the vc channel is now under extra category

And that's it for now, we might make some more changes to the gametype stuff, but our focus will first shift to probably the /fish features and some other pending maintenance for the server, the forums, and discord. The MAIN focus is the /valentine event for the 14th of February. Don't miss it !
