Server updates posted here!

Mickket

The server now uses a very small resource pack for future new items. Players who already use a resource pack will be able to use the servers resourcepack without effecting their current ones. Future new items will not look any different if you do not accept the servers resource pack. The resource pack may expand to more blocks/items in the future and it would be advised to use the servers resourcepack fto experience full gameplay enjoyment on the server. If you have server resource packs disabled for our server you can enable them via the edit button in the server list.
