Server Update – January 2023
True Minecraft is introducing changes this month. With the last update having a great reception, I am excited to make this announcement. Shulkers have been a sought-after item in the game, and now, there is a chance of them respawning in the end cities! Although their chance of respawn is still less than common – it ends the problem of extreme shulker box scarcity in SMPs with older worlds. Following other improvements to the game to remedy resource depletion, we hope everyone enjoys this. The respawn rates will be refined as necessary. Credit for this idea goes to @hex_a.
Chat formatting has had modifications and color tweaks to improve readability and mirror the vanilla formatting aesthetic. Patron rank has been put on hold, with donor inheriting several of its benefits. Upgrades to donor will soon be available for a low monthly fee of several dollars per month, while the lifetime donor upgrade will remain available.
Various issues have been fixed recently. Mob limitations have been vastly expanded, allowing farms to work properly. The dragon will now drop a broken elytra, a dragon head, and an egg on the ground after each battle, with battle enhancements on TMC's to-do list. Sleep confusions have also been fixed; anyone who is AFK will not be counted for sleep, with the server will requiring 75% of the server to sleep for the night to pass.
