    Hello everyone

    The server was offline this evening to do some performance changes and also because I wanted to fix point 3 below.

    1. Rewriting of plugins.

    Since I'm very very busy with a school project at the moment, I asked Ilias a few days ago to rewrite some plugins he wrote in the past, which weren't very performance friendly. These plugins should now be as performant as possible.

    These fixes should give the server more capacity to go over to the next point.

    2. Skins are back.
    Whether or not it is the skin plugin, or the other (already rewritten) plugins which caused lag, the skins plugin has been added again. I just want to see the results now, but we're still probably going to make our own, more performant version of this plugin to make the server more capable of handling more players in the future.

    Yet again, even without this plugin, there was lag today. This was because we got attacked by loginbots which caused a sudden 150 players to constantly login and logout on the server. This brings me to point 3.

    3. Antibots
    I started writing this plugin a few months ago, but forgot about it until today. We finished the plugin today and our server "should" now be protected from bots.

    Beware. This might give some false positives (not many at all) to some people, but I can't give away what is causing this, to prevent these bots from bypassing.

    I hope you guys like these kinds of updates as well, since they are at least as important, if not more important than others!

    A special thanks to @ilias85 for his hard work and ofcourse: enjoy!
    Kind regards
    Jelle

    As long as I can see my skin again, it's all good.
    But I got used to seeing people as our mascot, could we replace all Steve and Alex skins with our Rasta man? :kissing:
