  7. [1.12.3] Bugfix

    shawlaf
    VarLight 1.12.2 for Minecraft 1.15 thought every block invalid. This is now fixed.

    Absolutely Nothing changed for Minecraft 1.16, but I still uploaded the file for consistency.
  8. [1.12.2] Bugfix

    shawlaf
    This release fixes #37

    The custom datapack was completely removed. Instead, the list of allowed blocks is completely hardcoded.
  9. [1.12.1] Updated Datapack handling

    shawlaf
    The way the datapack was implemented in VarLight 1.12 had some issues with Paper (PaperMC/Paper#3668)

    This update should fix that.

    Instead of creating temporary files, the plugin not loads the Datapack directly from the Folder included in the Jar File.
  10. [1.12] 1.16 Support

    shawlaf
    This version drops support for 1.14 and adds support for 1.16. Because of the way Datapacks are loaded in 1.16, some changes had to be made:

    • The plugin no longer drops a "VarLight.zip" into your world/datapacks folder, please delete that file before upgrading!
    • Instead the plugin creates a temporary file in whatever your Operating System's Temp folder is and deletes that automatically when the server shuts down
