ViaVersion 4.2.1

Allow newer versions to connect, why lose players after a Minecraft update?

    Simply an outstanding plugin that does exactly what it says with little to no issues at all. I have been using this for years now.

    Never had any problems with it aside from the small compatibility issues that arise from Anti-cheats, which is not even their fault.

    Huge Kudos!

    This plugin is great for Minecraft plugin developers. Usually you have to test your plugin on different server versions to ensure compatibility. Without ViaVersion you'd have to restart your client to match the server version every time but with this I just leave the latest version client running.

    Does precisely what it says that it does, a wonderful plugin which is a phenomenal attribute to the Minecraft Administration Community.

    Protocol ids in velocity always fallback


    i write:

    velocity-servers:
    default: 4
    lobby: 754


    then it fall back to:

    velocity-servers:
    default: 4

    I would rate this plugin 500/5 stars. It's amazing, works flawlessly, it's great. I do however wish it did snapshots but I understand why it doesn't, it's just really funny everyone asking me for 1.18 support on my server when it's not even out yet xD

    Es gibt bekannte Crash-Exploits für dieses Plugin, aber sie weigern sich, sie zu beheben, da sie auf 1.8 sind. Schade, daher gibt´s nur einen Stern

      If you're getting this on a 1.8 client with 1.12 server this issue stems from ViaRewind. Unfortunately, older versions of the game do have exploits which if you would like to contribute a fix to ViaRewind (as it's not really actively maintained), everyone would appreciate it. There are too many exploits in older versions to fix all of them, which is a reason why ViaVersion itself warns about this if you run an older server.

    There are known crash exploits for this plugin but they refuse to fix them because they are on 1.8. So basically if you are using this plugin to allow 1.8 players then dont expect support, even though this is the whole point of the plugin. Just lazy devs. Its a shame because I used to be a supporter and donator of this plugin but it seems like they just cant be bothered lately. https://github.com/ViaVersion/ViaVersion/issues/2690

    I’ve made relatively intricate reviews in the past; however, it never gets old when appreciation for someone’s significant efforts and work is praised. This resource is one word: remarkable. The contributors/developers of ViaVersion created something that Minecraft (Mojang) is simply not wanting (and potentially not capable) of doing. Creating a resource that simply requires you to drag and drop a container into your plugins folder for users to join on a newer version is certainly something that maximizes your user base and ensures you can put the time you need into testing newer versions, so you don’t have to be the first to upgrade. Overall, my teams and many others appreciate the effort you put into ensuring supporting newer client versions is not only stable, but also fluid and consistent.

    Continue to do what you do best and continue to enlighten us with your unique approach in supporting newer clients on older servers.

    The objects when dropped are shown with the image of other objects.
    For example, if I drop a sword it becomes a hoe
