Weekly Development Update

Hello awesome people. Every week there is a development update that is made for the server. It will show all the changes that has happened to the server throughout that week. Each week a post will be made stating the changes. The changes are made in 3 categories. Bug Fixes, Additions, Retractions.

Bug fixes are things that are considered bugs to the developers that were, obviously, fixed. They will be things like incorrect colours in the chat, all the way to fixing server-breaking dupe glitches. If you were to find a bug in game that we didn’t know about and the information is useful to us, you will be rewarded based on the severity of the bug. Bug fixes can be reported on the Discord Server. Which you can join by clicking here.

The Additions include things that were added to the server. This will include changes to add more functionality to the server or the additions of plugins on the server. While the server is in beta you may experience issues with this new additions, so if you were to experience issues then join the Discord and someone will help you out. Also if you were to have any more suggestions then just join the Discord and head to the suggest channel. There you can type ,suggest <suggestion> and people will vote on whether it should be added.

The final category is Retractions. This are simply things that were removed from the server, this being features or plugins that were eventually removed. They will always be removed for a good reason either in place for something better, or as they are causing the server significant problems. Usually there isn’t many things that are removed from the server, though if they are then you will know about it.

Each week this list will be posted as well as a copy of this information about it. This is to provide a bit of transparency for the players on the server so they know what’s going on. Remember that Plexus is built for the players and if you were to have a significant problem with any of these then just pop on to the Discord and we can have a chat.
