This is a long post so feel free to skim it and then hurt yourself jumping to conclusions ;)
World borders are being removed for free servers that already exist. That means if you’re one of many loyal Minehut users, your world border will be removed next time your server starts up. If you /reset-all or make a new free server, you will have a world border.
This is not live! It will be live by tomorrow morning. This requires a full system restart that we will be doing in the wee hours of the night so please be patient :)
Change to free tiers
Yes, we’re making more changes to free tiers. We understand these changes will upset quite a few players, but we need to do this to make our tier model more sustainable so we can get back to focusing on fixing any current issues as well as adding new features to the network again.
Updates to free tiers:
- 4 slots
- Plugins: 1
- Only applies to NEW free servers. Free servers that are already made keep the plugins that they have.
- There are still some free plugins you can install (see updated list below).
- World border of 1000
- Only applies to newly created free servers.
If you already have a free server, you will *keep the plugins you have*. /reset-all will remove those plugins.
This is the last ‘nerf’ that we have planned for free tiers. Our goal is to make it so anyone can come and make their own server to play with friends for free, and a vote if they want to play more than 2 hours a day. If players want more than just basic functionality, our tier 1 is a reasonable price point.
This is a complete list of plugins that do not take up a plugin slot (can be installed on free servers):
- Essentials chat
- Essentials spawn
- Essentials kit adder
- Essentials warp gui
- Old combat
- Better combat
- Panda wire
- Instant respawn
We’re also bringing in a completely new tier system. Users with active subscriptions will continue to have their legacy tiers as long as the subscription is active, but all new subscriptions will be on the new tier system. These tiers start cheaper and end cheaper than the current system, and they also come with all new names!
Check out the table below for info on the new server plans!
If you purchased a permanent tier when it was possible (it isn’t anymore), then you will have your tier back for life! This will override any current subscription that you have so you can go ahead and cancel it if you have one. The permanent tiers are staying on the old tier system and are not affected by the new tier update.
Permanent tiers won’t be going anywhere, and we really appreciate everyone that supported Minehut early on :)
Icons are back! You'll see them in the server and on Buycraft later tonight.
These have been hidden from the store until we add more features to them. Yes we have plans for that, no we don't know when it will be. Players that have these will still have their title in game.
To try to balance out the bad with the good, here’s a glimpse at the next updates we have planned:
- Server owners will be able to designate ranks to players on their server such as builder, dev, co owner, etc. that will show up as prefixes / suffixes in the lobby for those players.
- Tutorials for everything Minehut
- User submitted tutorials
- Improved support system to make sure everyone gets help faster and more professionally.
- Updated lobby functionality
- Tons of website updates
- Increased reliability in server startup and status
- Easier way to do a quick restart to replace /reload.
