    November is an IRL month.

    - Updated Paper to latest 1.16.3 build and we will probably not update any time soon unless there's a good reason.

    - Mojang, we see you. 1.16.4 is here now, and we're already testing.

    - HEADSUP: This means when we upgrade to 1.16.4 that we might generate new resource world. This depends on a few things, but if you have items and builds you don't want to lose, pick it up.

    - Client connections from 1.16.4 to our 1.16.3 server is possible already. We've added it last week.

    - Updated the mcMMO plugin, this means new updates added are live now, such as the /party update.
    Note: Tree faller no longer gives extra double drops when not appropriate, along with a bunch of other fixes.

    - Friendly foxes understand us humans a little better.

    - Purged rollback data older than 52 weeks again, if you have builds, log in once a year so you can review it for grief and report it in a timely manner.

    - Purged inventory backup option 100%, meaning we archived it and starting fresh with the logging of this backup inventory system.

    - Updated Discord back to normal, removing the Halloween Theme.

    - Congratulations to Globug for being the Trick and Treat Champion of Discord!
    Screenshot 2020-11-03 at 07.29.55.png

    - Moved about 50 todo items from the forums to private Discord channels for better staff involvement.

    - Reviewing the Halloween month data and collecting who gets what soon. Thank you for your patience, we will get to it at some point this week.

    - Ordered new hardware and scheduled a mechanic to do our yearly network upgrade.

    - Scheduled maintenance: Downtime scheduled for the 5th, hopefully things go well. Once we're back online it is very much possible that we're on a new IP address. If you connect with a direct IP, use the 1moreblock.com host instead as it auto updates.

    - Working on /pvp count, trying to automate everything for those who love to play pvp on the server.

    - Can't wait to see what we can do with /pvp world at some point. People who have been winning in pvp in 2020 will probably be invited to test the pvp world at some point.

    - CMI has been updated to the latest version, lots of technical side issues that got addressed, so not going to mention them here.

    Thank you awesome people for playing. Thank you for reading this.

    Note: They also have 1.16.3 support and we still run on 1.16.3.

    - Started updating 1MB Core and network stuff to support 1.16.4.

    - The custom fireworks features got updated, we have some fancy things soon

    - Updated mcMMO.

    - Updated protocol support (via version stuff)

    - A thing that I can't mention here, but that exploit no longer works.

    - Scheduled downtime: 5th of November.

    Note: When things are over, we will let you know.

    - Headsup: We have time for build events again, so, get your resources ready.

    Thank you for reading the forums, feel free to post, we're looking forward to what you have to say.

    November 5th, 2020:

    Maintenance today: Downtime will happen.

    - We're updating things offline, and this will have consequences for the uptime of the server. It will be offline when they take the connection out of the box down the street, and it will be back when they replaced hardware and updated the account, etc. If the server is back we will have to some additional maintenance such as update zone file records, update vote sites, security tokens, etc. It will be back when we're ready, when it is working, and when we've tested it.

    - Whatever happens on the 5th, we will share it on Discord, but update the forum either that evening or on the 6th.

    - Regular maintenance now. . . (restarting server while we speak)

    - Dealt with our multiverse setup, making sure certain worlds are no longer spitting out certain msgs.

    - Updated the Bounty plugin, next week we will configure things and make it easier to find and use by others.

    - More updates to the Voting plugin. It will load a bit faster now, and has been updated with some new configuration variables I was missing.

    - Oneblock plenty phase really has a llama option.

    - Now preventing people from using multiverse teleport command to get into /run.

    - Discord Watchdog has been updated.

    - 2018 / 2019 todo items that were still in the queue have all been moved to Discord, well, after purging the stuff we've done or won't do, or can't do.

    - Most of the admin todo items I can share have been added to the Discord todo section (which is private btw)

    - The456gamer has helped set up the ticket system, thumbsup

    - Converted most of the variables from v3 to v4 of our /fish plugin.

    - Updated a bunch of plugins that had better 1.16.3 and 1.16.4 support.

    - Added Protocol support for Minecraft 1.17's first snapshot.
    Note: I strongly recommend against using it, we're on 1.16.3, use that until that changes.

    - mcMMO had an update fixing skill command output stuff. or whatever.

    - Working on the policy for the future "the big 1mb purge".

    - Headsup: 2021 we're ten years old.

    - Headsup: 1.16.4 is out, we might upgrade soon.

    - Headsup: townhall meeting in november, we will announce it soon.

    - Headsup: thankgiving event end november, we will announce it if we will have one

    - Headsup: holiday season events in december, we will announce it when appropriate

    - Headsup: If we upgrade this month please note that we might reset resource worlds.

    Wish us luck, hopefully the software update, the hardware upgrades, and the account update will all go well.

    Listening to jazz this morning, what about you?

    - Slight updates to 1MB 2.8.3, making it ready for the 2.8.4 update.

    - Restarted the server to activate some changes.

    - Fixed a few permissions, and granted some users access to their protected regions.

    - Simplified some commands we use internally. They're a little bit smarter, making it easier to use them.

    - We were looking into a bedrock breaking feature, but after a lengthy discussion decided against this for now.

    - The /cave feature received an update. And there's a second cave choice as well now. There was a slight warning during startup and this has been resolved now. Cave is now 1.16.3 rich.

    - We had a few Halloween rewards waiting to get paid out, this has been done now. Thanks for playing spleef and run games with us!

    - The secret 1MB project called 'ov...' you know what, let's keep it a secret a bit longer. But the456gamer has made an awesome start and I can't wait to make time soon to start learning this. By February you should hopefully see the results.

    - Updates to mcMMO
    Note: Woodcutting no longer by default drops loot, this is now a new sub-skill called 'Knock on Wood'.
    Note: This requires a new permission, we will soon add it.
    Note: Raising your axe should disclose some of info about this.
    Note: Green thumb bug fixed
    Note: Updates to the /party features
    Note: Master Angler features tweaked.
    Note: /fishing command has a few updates.
    Note: Green thumb needs a hoe.
    Note: Upcoming 1.16.4 support
    Note: Master Angler will activate 100% in 1.16.4
    Note: Master Angler will have 8 ranks now.
    Note: Wolves will earn a lot more exp than before.
    Note: Spectral Arrows will no longer give too much exp.
    Note: Fishing feature has been tweaked slightly.
    Note: General code optimizations.

    - Removed the ability to login with older 1.16.x releases now. The grace period has expired.
    Note: We are currently on 1.16.3, you can connect with 1.16.3 and 1.16.4.
    Note: It's possible to connect with 1.17, we however strongly advise against it for the time being.

    Have fun gaming.

    Idle-testing

    - Restarted the server to active the 'almost' 1MB 2.8.4 version.

    - Running the server idle to find issues and review how fixes from the last few weeks are behaving.

    - Updated mcMMO to address some minor issues (fine-tuning)

    - Updated 1MB Protocol support, we accept 1.16.3 and up, not down.

    - 1MB Heads database has been updated.
    Note: By the way, if you ever have any broken old heads, just let me know and I come to exchange them.

    - Moved a lot of 'final version' backups to an external drive, and removed even older versions.
    Note: If the data is gone, it's gone. I have no problem with that.

    - Re-allocated some disk space specifically to the OS and specifically to the Minecraft server.

    - Terminated some hosting packages as the websites have been moved to a new server in the last few months.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/changelog.261364/page-2#post-760263

    - Said thank you to our donors, staff, epic players and everybody that has been supportive.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/changelog.261364/page-2#post-760278

    - Emmabear has been working on the /thanksgiving dimension.

    - More information about the event:

    OMG stuff today, not 1MB stuff

    - Restarted the server to finalize some log files for analysing.

    - Have fun building! Please play fair.

    - Today's mainly about the behind the scenes stuff on the OMG boards. So there will not be anything to report here about 1MB.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/changelog.261364/page-2#post-772048

    Have fun making cool stuff with all your awesome resources.

    Cookies are great, so are potatoes.

    - Restarted the server to activate maintenance.

    - Removed older code for 1.16.0/1/2 from 1MB 2.8.4

    - Updated the Diamond Cookie, it's extra delicious now.

    - Inventory plan-b as we call it, this backup feature is now on the latest feature.

    - Removed bed as option to respawn from the nether and souls worlds.

    - Headsup: We're going to close /wild and rethink things because of 1.17, announcement will follow when ready.

    - Headsup: Final warning to remove items from the resources world, we will rebuild them (and again in January)

    - Worked on the december event, nothing is set in stone. We can't explain yet what we might do this year.

    - Emmabear has been building in /thanksgiving, this world some existing players might recognize. We hope you all like it. The 26th is coming closer! Don't miss that day.

    - Fixed a thing with fishing, it is more how I like things to be now.

    - Updated Github repository to reflect our 1.16.4 stuff a bit more.

    - Added Diamond Cookie as a CMI addon to my cmi github.

    - Stared at the todo list which is too big.

    See you all online, have fun playing survival.

    November 19th, 2020:

    A little bit of mcMMO clean-up.

    - Restarted the server to update to some latest builds.

    - Updated 1MB 2.8.4 to what we consider "the stable release".

    - Deleted all the archives of 1MB 2.8.0 and older. We will never roll back or need it.
    Note: We've made sure we can run the server without it now as well. So we can always spawn an instance of the server on 1.12 or 1.13, etc. (yay, more dynamic)

    - Updated Paper 1.16.4 to their latest build made in the last 24 hours.

    - Purged all Paper and Spigot builds we have in our /archive/builds/ older than 1.16.3
    Note: Full server backups of course have their working jar files, but that's besides the point.

    - Removed mcMMO log files and backups older than 2020.

    - Removed mcMMO region files dating back to 2013.
    Note: We keep a certain amount of years.

    - We've reviewed Bedrock <-> Java cross-play, but we're not quite ready for it.
    Note: Shelved for revisit in 2021.

    - After various frustrations with the Gametype borders, we've decided to just remove them for now.
    Note: This affects worlds with islands, like skyblock, skygrid, oneblock, etc. Not /general, etc.
    Note: You can still not build outside of your island, but the visual border is removed for now.

    - Diamond Cookies are live to all groups now. Enjoy crafting and nomming.
    Note: Youtube.com/mrfloris has a video. SUBSCRIBE

    - We've reviewed the mcMMO Rewards feature we had in 1.12 / 1.13, and it's unrealistic to bring it back in 1.16.4. We've closed this todo item and leave it up to the mcMMO developer to offer a dynamic enough plugin in the hopefully nearby future so we can give rewards when players reach certain levels in a skill.

    - Entity Tracking Optimization doesn't work well in 1.16.4, it's been turned off and will revisit at the next update their offer on SpigotMC.
    Note: This and other optimization plans are made, and are actively being reviewed. We try to continuously fight player lag, fps drops, and network latency the best we can. From whitelisting optifine, sodium, and a few other optimization plugins, to tweaking our configurations and java environment, hardware and software, to do the best we can that benefits both you, your client, us, and our servers.

    - Project Suffix has been stopped, we looked into it and it's too much work for now. Maybe we do this in the future in 2022, but for now we want to focus on the survival elements of our server. Not add-on more little visual thingies that are probably too confusing for more young players anyway.

    - We had an issue with a selection tool configuration, after basic testing this seems to no longer be an issue. And has been resolved. Nothing players really notice, the staff might though.

    - Added the first step towards making /account more dynamic.

    - Added the /Account command, and it loads the same info as /motd (page 2).

    - Added your mcMMO and Jobs stats to it, and made various elements more current and you can hover over them, even click on them to find out more.

    - The next update will hopefully be soon, where we nitpick on what we have, include nicknames possibly, and offer the option to see your group/rank, and upgrade options, as well as upcoming player rewards, and other fun little things. One command to get a proper overview and options to view and manage your in-game account.

    - Reviewed a bunch of colleague servers and wrote down what we liked and don't liked. Hopefully we can discuss internally with all our owners, admins, and some invited staff the elements of our network-policy: What will we always strive for, what will we never do. Think: We will always be family friendly, we will never allow hate speech.. But also, how we handle spawn, rules, organize data, share info with staff, etc. It's important to see what's happening on other servers, so we dont have our head in the sand.

    - Looked into the option to allow boosted players or players with certain ranks to pick up the "DJ" role, and play from a select list of Minecraft music.

    - Started generating variety of fun things for the December event. Boy it's getting close fast! I hope we can figure this out.

    - Started reviewing things that we can do in our celebration year 2021. The OMG boards is 20 years old, and 1MB server is 10 years old.

    - Started reviewing the option(s) to add levels and enchants to our tools. Interesting, interesting.. Certain ranks get certain enchantments? Interesting..

    - Started collecting blacklist data from various plugins so we can be more consistent. Making sure players get properly banned when they magically are holding a command block out of nowhere or get caught duping items (play fair, don't be a douche)

    - Looking into converting one rt plugin into our core plugin that we use already for a million other things. Allowing us to run with less plugins.

    - Started thinking about extending the 1MB Food features, we have custom fish, custom diamond cookies, and next is a special potato!

    - FINAL Headsup: We're going to close /wild and rethink things because of 1.17, announcement will follow when ready.

    - FINAL Headsup: PLEASE remove items from the resources world, we will rebuild them (and again in January)

    Okay, that's enough for me today. Have fun gaming, and remember: Eat the zombie before it eats you.

    Fall Season Worlds Update

    Screenshot 2020-11-20 at 07.41.43.png Screenshot 2020-11-20 at 08.02.25.png Screenshot 2020-11-20 at 07.52.53.png

    - Took the server offline to do world maintenance for the Fall Season 2020.

    - Made a manual backup of the server as a snapshot rollback point.

    - Upgraded the 1MB 2.8.4 engine to the latest dev version.

    - Upgraded Paper 1.16.4 to their latest build.

    - Upgraded any plugin that had very minor maintenance updates and won't require testing.

    - Created a new seed for /mine, /end, and /nether.

    - Created new worlds for /mine, /end, and /nether.

    - Pre-generated the new /mine, /end, and /nether worlds with a 5k world border (10,000 wide on all sides)
    Note: We will expand on these borders in the coming days and weeks.

    - Removed the old /mine, /end, and /nether worlds.

    - Loaded in the new /mine, /end, and /nether worlds.

    - Made sure their spawn points were correct, and updated the /warps for them.
    Note: You can get there with /warp mine, or /mine, etc.

    - Headsup: If you had a home in these worlds, they obviously work but can be unsafe, or might not work, for obvious reasons.
    Note: Mind you, we have given weeks and weeks of headsup, so complaints will be 100% ignored.

    - New spawn schematics have been created, for a more fun spawn point experience.
    Note: We will continue to update these in the coming months.

    - The /wild will remain accessible, but it is officially "closed until 1.17".
    Note: Reason: We want a nice new world, then Mojang announced new world generation, we will wait for this.
    Note: Reason for that ^ : World height changes, generation engine, and sigh.
    Note: Mind you, the /general world is now 20k, with 1.16.4 generated chunks (that's 40,000 on all sides).

    - The /Souls world will be sorted out as we have time, and we're having nothing but events ahead of us, so every little bit of configuration tweaking happens one step at a time. I can only do so much.

    - The /spawn world has all its chunks forcefully upgraded from 1.16.3 to 1.16.4 (for the ones that weren't upgraded yet)

    Have fun gaming.

    Fine tuning world stuff

    - Updated the new worlds with some tweaky tweak things.

    - Fixed an issue with /rtp in the resource worlds.

    - Noticed an issue with /run potentially, looking into it.

    - Fine tuning some configuration files and closing old tickets on Discord related to this.

    - Updated the 1MB Heads database

    - Updated the 1MB Jobs features

    - Updated the 1MB Plan-B inventory backup system.

    - Furthering the 1.16.4 chunk conversion.

    - Fixed an issue with /warp command abuse.

    - Maintenance after the weekend will focus on having the server running smooth for the Thanksgiving event, and the Holiday Season event. If there's any news regarding these events we will let you know. And full maintenance will be when we have free time and is not intrusive for these events. And then we're slowly moving to 2021 todo lists.

    - Live streamed for 4 hours, hanging out with players and staff. Was fun. Thanks for joining twitch.tv/mrfloris everybody.

    Have fun gaming.

    World Tweaking

    - Converted the majority of the worlds from 1.16.3 chunks to 1.16.4 chunks.

    This took 15 hours, so .. time consuming even if it's just 1 single changelog line.

    Busy offline day.

    - Restarted the server to activate a bit of maintenance.

    - Converted the last few chunks from 1.16.3 to 1.16.4. This should help with identifying some issues early on, and improve performance as you run into these chunks.

    - Fixed an issue with /warp guardian, thanks for reporting RitualRogue47

    - Updated a plugin that had minor maintenance.

    - Busy offline, going to work on the December Events during daytime, and tonight putting the final touches on the Thanksgiving Dimension.

    - Added a countdown timer to the /motd (you see it when you login)

    Have fun gaming.

    Hardly no maintenance to mention.

    - Restarting the server maybe to free up some memory.

    - No plans for any updates.

    - Prepping behind closed doors the December event.

    Very busy offline today, plus, I need to catch up on sleep. So very likely very little Minecrafty will get done.
