Hello all,

Since 1.13 is an absolutely monstrous update, there will have to be changes on ECC to accommodate for it.

Current status

Currently, we've got all our custom plugins staged and ready to be tested on 1.13-pre7. This took over 3k lines of code, and an absolutely immense amount of time to change the logic around. This means that when all the other plugins we use are updated, we can start testing and experimenting with what needs to be patched.

Spigot recommends that servers wait for all their plugins to update before launching production:
Because of the volatility of this update, I've had to feature and bug lock the entire network until 1.13 is launched. The reason behind this is that developing two separate versions, and then merging them together when 1.13 is launched is immense work. It's simply not worth the amount of time it'd require.

With that status update out of the way. Now onto the meat and potatoes.

Features/Systems Removed

Since 1.13 completely removes the "item id" system in minecraft, there unfortunately has been a few casualties.

SG has too much of a codebase dependant on the old system to be updated. The amount of work spent on the rest of the plugins is about half the amount of work needed for SG if it were to be updated.
SG, come 1.13 will be removed from the main server.

Now, before everyone panics. Your kits that you bought will be transferred into KitPVP in some way. We don't know how yet, but they will be compensated in some form.


Trade signs are the next casualty, but only partially. As announced here:...
As you may already know, Mojang intends to release 1.13 on July 18th. As andrewkm has stated in the ECC Discord #news channel, ECC will not be 1.13 compatible for a few weeks.

You have to use Minecraft 1.12.2 to connect to ECC. If you have already updated to 1.13, you will need to create a 1.12.2 profile to join the server.


If you are unsure how to create a 1.12.2 profile, you can use one of the following tutorials depending on your Minecraft launcher version:
1. Select the options menu in the top right corner.

2. Add a new profile.

3. Select the version "release 1.12.2" and save the profile.

4. Select the new 1.12.2 profile and start the game.

1. Select "New Profile".

2. Select "Use version: release 1.12.2" and save the profile.

3. Select the new 1.12.2 profile and start the game.

Once the server is ready for 1.13 you will be informed via the forum news section.
Your purchases across our servers will now total up in regards to forum medals, so don't get surprised if you see a bunch of medals coming your way ;).

Previously:

- Your highest total amount (server specific) would go through.
- If you had spent $200 on SkyBlock and $150 on Main, you would have $200 in forum medals.

Currently:

- All your total amounts across all servers will go through.
- If you had spent $200 on SkyBlock and $150 on Main, you would have $350 in forum medals.
We have clarified the rules for automation on Skyblock.

You can find the updated rules (which have been changed to disallow third party automation regardless of whether you are AFK) at https://www.ecocitycraft.com/forum/wiki/skyblock-afk-and-automation-guidelines.

We have set up a discussion thread. Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this change.

Unfortunately, due to an oversight when replacing our voting system, the logging system no longer worked. This means that the votes for May were not recorded.

As we had only completed the system mid-June - we cannot post the partial results for June. There will be full rewards for July though.

Thanks for the patience.

Just as with monthly spawners, we now have Monthly McMMO Keys.
Shop page: https://shop.ecocitycraft.com/category/1178092
Wiki page: https://www.ecocitycraft.com/forum/wiki/skyblock-monthly-mcmmo-key-upgrades/

Basically, a monthly mcmmo key upgrade costs 2.5x that of a single mcmmo key, however, the upgrade carries with you forever, across every yearly reset, etc. Once you have it, it never leaves your account.

We will still sell single mcmmo keys of course for those who want that extra boost if they are on a cooldown, or don't have a monthly mcmmo package in their account.
