1.20 Update Plan


On 6.7.2023, 1.20 comes out. YAY!!!  Are we updating yet?  NO!!!  Why?  Because our plugin engine won't be ready for some time.  Let's go through a checklist of things that need to update, I'll keep this up to date:

Server Engine:

Plugins: We need plugins to be ready/tested in 1.20:

Here's some "optional" plugins that we use that aren't critical but need to be upgraded:

Here are the data packs we use:

  • Our main datapack bundle comes from vanillatweaks and can be found here: https://vanillatweaks.net/share#xMDuyU
    • Armor Statues - Provides a unique book which allows the posing and modification of armor stands and item frames
    • AFK Display - Grays out a player's name if AFK for 5 minutes
    • Durability Ping - Get notified when a tool is under 10% durability
    • Track Statistics - Tracks some interesting statistics
    • Track Raw Statistics - Adds 100+ things to a scoreboard which can rotate and show online players who has done what
    • Coordinates HUD - Shows the players XYZ coords and time of day above the hotbar
    • Workstation Highlights - Allows you to find the workstation of any villager
    • Player Head Drops - Players will drop their heads when killed.  The dropped head will have a tag showing who killed them.  The block is a player head with a texture baked into the item, so texture will persist even if the player changes skins.
    • More Mob Heads - Mobs have a chance to drop their head when killed, the head is a player head with a texture baked into the item.
    • Villager Death Messages - Notifies the server chat when a villager is killed
    • Wandering Trades - The wandering trader will now sell mini blocks which cost emeralds AND a full size version of the mini block.  The blocks are player heads with textures baked into the item.
  • Custom Roleplay Data - A datapack to allow custom re-modeling of items for additional roleplay stuff; it's technically no new items, but if a custom model is added to the server resource pack, it renders in-game for anyone in game. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/customization/custom-roleplay-data-datapack. Our current list of custom models can be viewed here.
  • Stillagers - A custom DataPack made by surfrock66, this allows you to apply a nametag to Villagers titled "Stillager" which disables their AI which reduces lag in 1x1 spaces in trading halls.  The still villagers will restock at 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM in game.  This can be reversed by applying the nametag "Moveager." https://www.teh3l3m3nts.com/new-datapack-stillagers/


Lastly, there are some client mods we use which are very helpful but aren't deal-breakers
