  1. The Resource Pack Update

    chrismin1302
    This is a major update and the first release on GitHub. Old releases can still be found on Spigot.

    This update changes the way the Resource Pack is handled by default. From now on, minepack.net will be used to host the Resource Pack which means that PORT FORWARDING IS NO LONGER REQUIRED! Furthermore, if you had issues with hosting the resource pack in the past, then these have most likely been resolved.

    IF YOU ARE ALREADY USING THE RESOURCE PACK OF THE ADDITIONS API THROUGH THE SERVER.PROPERTIES FILE, THEN PLEASE REMOVE IT FROM YOUR SERVER.PROPERTIES AND ENABLE THE RESOURCE PACK SEND OPTION IN THE ADDITIONS API CONFIG.

    If for whatever reason you would like to switch back to the old HTTP Server, you can do so by disabling minepack.net in the Additions API config.

    This new release also changes how the Resource Pack is regenerated. In the past, the resource pack only updated when the plugin version of any of the supported plugins changed. Now, however, the resource pack is combined every time on startup (asynchronously in order to not lag the server) and its md5 checksum is checked against the one that was previously used. If anything changed, then the new resource pack will be uploaded and used.

    I have also had to move the download to the GitHub servers as the plugin has seen a dramatic increase in size due to the inclusion of Selenium, the web browser interface that allows the resource pack uploading to function. However, this shouldn't affect the performance of the plugin.

    Any feedback is very much appreciated, as t
