Tech

  • Cayorion x6: MassiveMobs -
    • Almost all mobs are now tameable using different foods. Tame with mushroom soup if unsure.
    • You must now tame your passive mobs! Otherwise they will escape!
    • You can equip your tamed mobs (might be a bit buggy atm).
    • Tamed monsters will not attack their owner or the owner faction allies.
    • Areas will now increase in difficulty as more players enter. The amount of monsters will now correlate to the amount of players instead of the amount of loaded chunks.
    • Reworked spawning and despawning so that mobs only exist where players will see them.
    • Mob groups now are of better sizes. No more groups of 7 creepers.
    • Boss speech radius reduced from 100 blocks to 50 blocks.
    • Mob groups placement should now look slightly better.
    • Implemented a system that auto-removes far too outdated MassiveMobs.
    • Various performance improvements.
  • Cayorion:
    • Updated MorePlayerModels2 server side plugin to latest version.
    • Increased client side entity render ranges from 48 blocks to 96 blocks. This correlates with MassiveMobs despawning algorithm and will allow players to see entities at a longer distance.
  • Cayorion x3:
    • Improved the mob generator patterns for skeltons, zombies and wither skeletons.
    • This is the first beta version thereof.
    • They no longer have boring names such as “Zombie”.
    • They now have concepts such as “Undead Fisherman”.
    • To be exact we now have: Cultist, Farmer, Fisherman, Hunter, Knight (with Squire and Horse), Lumberjack, Miner, Pilgrim, Shepherd, Archer, Axewielder, Swordsman, Chef, Engineer and Jeweler.
    • Monsters will no longer spawn on top of trees. The exception is spiders. They still can.
  • Cayorion x4:
    • Published an uncompleted version of “better uncommon mob names by Unluvable”. Uncommon pigs are for example no longer called “Pig Chief”. They are instead called “Mudbather”, “Greatsnout” or “Carrotmuncher”.
    • The mcMMO fishing ability “shake” can no longer be used on boss mobs and their entourage.
    • If the first mob in a group fails to spawn none of the other will spawn. This fixes a bug where Zahmir would spawn in faction land without Xytaujin, A flock of sheep without their undead shepherd, A Wolf without it’s uncommon undead hunter.
    • Common mobs now have white names instead of uncolored names defaulting to white. This fixes a bug where the MassiveMoney log would display common mob names in yellow which is confusing since the mobs were not rare.
    • Uncommon creepers are now always charged/powered.
    • Silverfish groups will now spawn naturally at the same frequency as enderman groups. These silverfishes will neither break blocks nor hide in them.
    • Tamed mobs no longer count towards the mob limit and will thus not stop new mobs from spawning.
  • Cayorion: New version of the LightFixer plugin.
  • Cayorion: Reported a performance issue in ProtocolLib.
  • Cayorion x2: Generated The Rift world map.
  • yendor46 x10: Upgraded Forum Software/Add-Ons with First Pass for Style and Add-On Configurations.
  • yendor46: Added Facebook integration to the Forums.
  • Cayorion x2: Various optimizations and performance improvements to MassiveMobs and the nickname system.
  • Cayorion: MassiveMobs – Quickened despawning of animals spawning as monster pets and added a command to be used by staff members for debugging of the system.
  • Cayorion: Detected ProtocolLib being the cause of the heavy TPS drops during peak hours. ProtocolLib has been removed. Thus staff disguises and sign click edit does not work anymore.
  • Cayorion: Updated the MassiveCraft Wiki to 1.22.3, Installed DPL, VisualEditor and set up a Parsoid server.
