!Help Wanted!

We are looking for a chunk error bug. We have opened one of our testservers to the public, hoping for lots of traffic, forcing this bug to show its face.

It is currently a 32 slot server, available for anyone to play on for a while, please remember we officially support 8 players in MP.

This server will NOT be available as a long term alternative to play on through the release of A20.

We might have to restart the server or world during that process.



Changelog b232&b233



  • Coffin/Casket open & close sounds. 


  • Clamped item stack counts to 65535 when saved 
  • "DecorateChunkOverlapping biome null" warning to show chunk
  • Improved path node penalty clamp and added log 
  • Updated metal hit metal and metal destroy sounds
  • Dynamic mesh default to land claim only 


  • Several pipe weapons have random stats. No primitive items should have any. 
  • animalZombieDog sticky projectiles offset from model
  • Block preview displays wrong rotation for cupboards 
  • Fixed missing texture in house_modern_05
  • Explosions still destroy water and drop the block
