    Hello everyone!

    Recently there have been a semi-small amount of relevant changes that you should all be aware of.

    LeonidasXV was semi-recently re-promoted to helper. Welcome him to the team!
    MeromeTDM was recently promoted to helper. Welcome her to the team!

    So a lot of you have been complaining about KitPVP lagging. It was not easy to find the case..
    The problem was the PVPStats plugin that keeps track of the KDR. It logged EVERY KILL. There were more than 2 MILLION kills logged in the database. I don't know why it made it lag so much.. But it did. My guess is that it loaded all 2 million to check if you are in a killstreak then it unloaded it, causing lag, over and over. I removed that table from the database, keeping the one with your stats, so it should no longer lag! Have fun!

    Turfwars had a minor update! It is less buggy now, and it works a little differently! Enjoy!

    We are considering dropping the Skyblock server. It is dead. No one players on it anymore. I am also considering dropping the less popular UHC server. Please let us know what you think in the comments.

    The old factions server is about to be removed since the version 2 update was released. We were thinking of letting everyone use worldedit, gamemode creative, and powerful factions perms.. Just for the fun of making the server unplayable. Does this sound like a good idea? Maybe peak hour on Saturday the 19th.

    Also, @_JordyJA_ made a new favicon for the website! It is this thing: [​IMG]

    I still play the sky servers. The problem is people not really getting reward for the risk. That said no one promotes the server. Like, no one. I get people to go on it, but only when I'm on. It's not less popular it just doesn't have the reward of say kitpvp.

    It needs a way for islands to be allied and be able to tp to each other or even quite literally placing their island next to yours to "fuse" them/combine them. I'm sure it would work. Just try and you can at least know if it will flop or win!

    Okay. I don't know if it is worth the effort. https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/a-skyblock.1220/ Does that look like a good plugin?

    What the advertisement?

    First post to here and Facebook, then every time the server has maybe 20 or more people on it do an alert that tells people that skyblock is being updated. Make a thread on this forum about it and put the link to the thread on the alert.

    Also....could you ever consider throwing this in too https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/tool-opensource-myrecipes.5176/

    It could be useful in skygrid to be able to craft nearly uncraftable items like granite or andesite, even being able to make lower durability but REALLY good items would be cool. An example would be like crafting a pickaxe out of glass. The pick would be a wooden pick with 5-10 durability but has silk touch and can mine very quickly. It's on you though.

    One problem: The SkyBlock server is 1.7 still.
    It needs to be redone. It is the oldest still running primary server. It has not gotten updated in a long time.

    Huh. Maybe.....Maybe the place can be remade.....but that's a lot of work. Oh wait! Maybe redoing the shop and THEN updating the place might work. How long does it take to update a place? I guess once that's done its an all hands on deck thing because advertisement will bring in many.

    This is the only cracked server with Uhc.
    There is one more that recently updated and now has it, But this UHC is better.
    Skyblock is old, Uhc is more new to cracked servers, Which i'm asuming has brought in players..
    Skyblock is on almost every cracked server.. I think UHC is better not only for my liking, But for the majority of the other players.

    Very rarely are both UHC servers in use. Very rarely does UHC have more than 0 players online.

    So.. When is there ever more then 3 people on sky?
    I think more players like UHC.. They just like HG better.../Kitpvp... If you were to add a poll on the MAIN page of the website.. I think UHC'd win..

    Why can't we keep both again? I mean it would cause unnecessary complaints than to just upgrade it

    It's not worth it though.. Very old. The current skyblock plugin doesn't use UUIDs.
