    We hope you all had a safe and merry Christmas with friends and family, and a great time on MineHeroes. Now that Christmas is over, the Christmas Lobby has been swapped out and the Christmas Gifts are no where to be seen...maybe it was because a whopping 16,384 presents were found in the hub by you guys!

    Looking forward, it's now 2017, and with the new year, the team at MineHeroes is excited for the months to come. We have big plans for MH this year; January will start off by focusing on optimizations and updates to existing game-modes and we may even be able to sneak in the return of an EPIC game-mode!

    To kick off the new year, we are hosting an 80% off new years sale over at store.mineheroes.net

    Votes Reset + Double Vote Rewards
    As per usual, with every new month, vote counts are reset. For this week only, ALL players will receive double vote rewards when voting. Don't miss out, view all voting information and rewards with the /vote command or vote here at www.mineheroes.net/vote

    Vote messages will no longer broadcast in public due to the noise complaints!

    Factions Lag Status
    I have heard the uproar, the outrage and the riots! The whole team has. Our factions community is ever growing, reaching 300 players during peak times, and with such a huge influx of players, a wave of issues and lag has plagued our server. Progress is being made and so far, the following changes have been made in just the last week:
    • Cannon issues should be resolved - TNT/Sand will no longer clip on slabs
    • A modified version of nocheat has been pushed out that will help performance
    • Factions f perms have been optimized and a deny message will be sent when trying to build in denied land
    • Parts of redstone have been redone and optimized
    • Burst has been redone and optimized
    • /f who will no longer cause lag because of relationship checking
    • /f fly has been optimized and will no longer lag the server
    You will notice significant improvements now that the server has rebooted with the applied changes. But there is still and always will be room for improvement, so please work with us and report these issues.

    Bottle changes
    I have remade the EXP bottle storage system and allowed ALL players to have access (previously donors only). You can use the command /bottle <amount> to withdraw your EXP to 1 Bottle of EXP.

    I've also fixed issues where EXP bottles sometimes wouldn't work when thrown and bottles can no longer be renamed via anvils, this is to prevent scamming.

    Spawner changes
    To help with lag and server performance we've decided to remove animal spawner conditions, this means animals will no longer need grass to spawn on or any light, You can find an example of how this new setup will look below

    Looks awesom! Happy new years mineheroes!

    And I'm glad I can ditch my old designs for steak farms lol, the spawner update will be quite the help.

    Can we look at the plot clearing/blackout issue on creative now? :D

    :eek: so all passive mobs except squids will be able to spawn without grass? Will they still require light or can they spawn in darkness too?

    As long as the mob is considered an animal and light is no longer required.
