Behind the Scenes | State of Matecraft #2 - Sequacious - 04-01-2020

Hello all!
Welcome to the series of updates I will be posting as time goes on, bringing the community up-to-speed with the goings on of the network.

First things first, we recently had a massive changeover in the backend of the entire network when it comes to player permissions.
For those of you that don't know, permissions are what allow players to do commands, show prefixes & interact with anything in the server.
Naturally this switch may introduce issues so if you come across any please let us know.

Time for some per-server news:
Elite Survival: A massive PvP Arena has popped up at spawn and you can acquire player heads in it! There's also special mechanics in place to make sure you don't lose your inventory or XP while in the Arena.
Creative: All tiers of Builder have been given /pweather [rain,sun,reset] as the weather in Creative is always set to sun. 
We're also constantly testing the viability of FastAsyncWorldEdit returning as it's developers are squashing some major bugs, making World Edit functions much less likely to strain the server.
Aether [SkyBlock, SkyGrid, AcidIsland, CaveBlock]: All Aether servers have been updated internally to help prevent crashing.
As a side note, SkyGrid Redux is almost ready to launch, with less crashing, a new spawn, working chests in the grid, larger default claims & more!
Enchanted: Small tweaks have been made over the past week but the next patch is incoming! The next patch is themed around extra dimensions, and one dimension I'm happy to confirm is coming is the 'Oasis'.
This world is full of bustling forests surrounded by huge sand plateaus, however, if you follow the rivers underground you'll find massive underground caverns that continue for miles.
The bloodmoons are less frequent, but more deadly. Especially with the return of Giants Wink
More to come soon.
Global: Many messages sent to players [rankups, bans, mutes, kicks e.t.c] have been updated to differentiate them from normal chat.
Bombermate, SuperSmashMates & The Towers Coming Very Soon
