Who would have thought we'd come this far, as far as trying our best to update everything and manage to get a 1.16.1 server up and running for you to test.
The server is SurvivalPlus and it will be the spiritual successor of our current Testing, which will be closed in the next few weeks to be used for other projects such as new minigames and gamemodes.

SurvivalPlus will then be our guinea pigs of servers, receiving the latest cutting edge updates and changes that we're too afraid to release on other servers, the first biggest update we'll be testing will be the new Minecraft 1.16.1

How to join?

Simply use /go survivalplus (or /go survivalp to save 3 whole letters) while being on a 1.16 or 1.16.1 or 1.16.2 client.
Attempting to join from an older client will NOT work and you will be redirected to the lobby.

Why?

We feel like it would be time to slowly transition to new versions and experiment with new features and content as we feel like 1.8 has been stagnating for way too long, this test is to see if the performances of the new version can keep up with our demands and gamemodes.

Bro, what about PvP?

We added a plugin that reverts PvP to 1.8 style (spam click = you're good), however the blocking mechanic is missing so you will get to try out the new shield mechanics.

Why is X command missing?

Updating plugins to versions past 1.12 is no joke, it requires time and effort and in the years we accumulated hundreds of thousands of lines of code that should be carefully checked and migrated.

For this reason we decided to simply migrate first the core plugins that are required for a good survival experience, if this test turns out to be positive we'll be definitely start migrating everything else.

Where is the shop?

As stated in the previous section updating some plugins requires more time than one might expect, our shop plugin is one of them and for this reason we'll run this test without a proper economy. On the bright side the vote crate looks like this Vote Crate

What about my kits?

For now there won't be any kit other than the starter kit, kit claim and kit basic. The true [Member] way.

Why is X not working?
