Today we had a brief downtime. This downtime was to update the server.
For starters we updated all public plugins to their latest versions hopefully resolving some issues with those plugins.
Second we updated the server from 1.16.1 to 1.16.4.
Finally there were some changes to the dragon fight.
The death sound should no longer be a globally played sound and only those within a certain distance will hear it.
Path finding was improved a little bit to stop those instances where the dragon just stops moving (they will still happen, just not as frequently)
The movement of the dragon should be a little more fluid.
On top of the above, we put in a measure to see if it will stop the server TPS from tanking.
We are proud to introduce our MadStoneMC Content Creator Program!

If you do not currently have your IGN linked to your forum account, it is quite a simple process. To link your account, simple copy the command either at the top of every page or on the account creation page, and run that in game. You should then get a message in game informing you whether or not it was successful. If it failed for whatever reason, please contact a staff member, or post in the help section.
