We have been getting a lot of questions regarding the opening of Enigmatic and updating our current server across support and general chat alike, and as you can imagine it is getting tiring to hear the same questions everyday. I know that being kept in the dark is frustrating, but it is not our intention to hide anything from our community. So I've decided to try to lighten up and hopefully answer the questions you might be thinking of with this post.
First, let's talk about our upcoming pack Enigmatic. As some of you may know, we ran into an issue where the mod(spongeforge) that runs our plugin has not been updated to be compatible with the most recent versions of forge. Because of this, we cant use it until it is updated. This also happened with Sevtech, which we opened purely vanilla. However, there were issues with Sevtech involving perms, items, the store, and others that we didn't want to repeat. Since we do not know when spongeforge will be updated to a compatible version, we have decided to look into alternative routes. Now I will say that what i mention here is NOT GUARANTEED, but if it works, it will let us open sooner rather than later. We are looking into a couple of mods called thut permissions and thut essentials to handle permissions and basic commands. The shop will also be connected to the server, and Jin has been working on discord integration. If all goes well, we will have a replacement for what our other servers have without needing spongeforge.
Moving on, Sevtech has an update! Yes we know, and we are not going to forget, I promise. The problem is that the 3.0.7 update has some issues with corrupting worlds (It actually happened to us too, and we had to use a backup of the world). Once a stable build or work around to avoid corruption comes up, it will be updated.
As for any other pack we host, if it already runs spongeforge and plugins, and is stable, we will wait until there is a compatible spongeforge version to update to. Its in the best interest of both the staff and the community.
For those wondering about a skyblock: Yes, there will be one. After enigmatic is opened, I will be putting up a poll to see which one the community wants the most, and we will begin preparations.
I think that about wraps it up. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask below and either I or another staff will try to answer them to the best of our capability. Also any updates will be posted here. We hope you all have a better understanding of where we stand
