Huge updates for EliteCraft! First off, we have made a huge hardware upgrade (32GB Dedicated server), so that we may now accomodate upto 120 people without any lag at all, as before we were experiencing occasional lag spikes during peak times, this will now be a thing of the past! This upgrade was made possible by the generous support of Matty0770
Along with this, myself and Stew have been working very hard to modernise the server over the last few weeks, updating many of our outdated features (such as Skyblock, Auctions and player shops) as well as adding many new features such as McMMO, as well as a whole bunch of new features & perks for premium ranks!
Here is a summary of the recent changes we've made,
- New, modern ChestShop API for playershops that looks like this
- Skyblock reboot - New skyblock GUI, new island types for premium ranks & other new skyblock world features
- McMMO - This is a very long-awaited update, that many of our players will be glad to see implemented. McMMO Adds all sorts of new qualities to the game including parties & skill trees. Here are a list of avaliable commands
- New Auctions system, with updated GUI for player auctions! /ca help
- Updated our /shop GUI, so that /warp shop is now portable (yes, this was supposed to be in our previous update, though there were many problems that have now been fixed)
- Updated our new custom TAB list, that was added in our previous update. Now it shows useful information such as your player balance and ping

As you can see there are many new features, which if you're a fan of vanilla/semi-vanilla Minecraft you may be overwhelmed by. Though, as is our intention as a server, these new features are all completly optional, so they do not interfere the overall gameplay experience.
