Use on public servers

note on use of the mod on servers: I want to make this very clear, I DO NOT support using this mod on servers, if you create an issue and I see you've tried to join a server, I will close the issue. This mod is only maintained because I personally use it for myself, on my own worlds. Do not break other servers rules, they are there because the owners want you to play a specific way, respect that or plan on a different server.


A quick note on versioning. I try to support everything I can but with limited time I opt to discontinue every version 2 versions below the current game version. Example: we're currently on 1.14.4 so I will support 1.14.4 and 1.12.2 ( we missed 1.13 ). If you find a very big bug in an old version I might be abe to resolve it if you submit a detailed bug report.

: This means the mod is longer supported unless a game breaking bug is found.

Limited support: This means the mod will only receive bug fixes when ones are listed. I will no longer be back porting feature changes unless I get bored and have time to fix them.
