All Plugins Now Available, Our New Plan Is Here

December 21, 2020 | Published by Matej Pacan

In the last post, we’ve exposed the lies behind SpigotMC and how the internal politics are driving dozens of developers away. I spent the last couple of days rethinking about what we really want to do. It was shocking to see the over two dozens of people who’d reach out personally to give support or simply express their gratitude for talking about things that were not talked about for so long.

Almost 80 people have shown interest in our upcoming marketplace, and over 120 people have supported us by purchasing our chat-management plugin ChatControl Red. Thank you.

In this post, I’d like to clarify a lot of questions we were getting and announce that pin out our new vision and mission to build a better, brighter tomorrow.

With that said, I am announcing the immediate availability of all of our plugins. We’ve decided to open-source and release most plugins free of charge, so that we’ll have more energy and focus to put into building our upcoming marketplace and improve our teaching classes and the remaining ChatControl Red.

Frequent Questions

I’ve purchased ChatControl Pro, CoreArena, Boss, Winter or Confiscate, where can I get those?
Right now SpigotMC has hijacked access to these plugins without our consent. We apology for the inconvenience and have already repurposed those plugins free of charge at our GitHub repositories.

Visit this page to get access to ChatControl, CoreArena, Boss, Winter, Confiscate and even Tester and BungeeChatAPI: https://mineacademy.org/plugins/

Are you planning up continue updating ChatControl Pro, CoreArena, Boss, Winter or Confiscate?
Yes. It’s frustrating to see your favorite plugin getting abandoned, especially those you have been using for years and are a crucial part of your server.

I wrote on Spigot that “we can’t guarantee updates after December”, because, as described on our previous post, we had severe issues with the forums. I also wrote a post about discontinuing CoreArena, Winter and Confiscate. We’ve open sourced them because there’s so much on the table right now that we’ll not be able to dedicate the time and attention needed to rewrite these plugins.

However, ChatControl Pro, CoreArena, Boss, Winter or Confiscate will not get discontinued completely. Rather, we will put them on our long-term maintenance like we did with ChatControl Free. That means we will fix important bugs, make the plugins stable, update for Minecraft 1.17+ and reply to your questions. We simply won’t add any more new features or do large time consuming code rewrites.

Do I have to pay for ChatControl Red when I purchased ChatControl Pro?
No. Your ChatControl Pro will get bugs fixes and updated for MC 1.17, as outlined above. We originally worked on ChatControl 9 that was supposed to be a free upgrade to Pro, but that project has failed because we realized that, we couldn’t implement all the features you guys have requested without a complete rewrite. That is why we spent the last 4 months redoing the plugin and decided to simply offer it for a very cheap price as a separate plugin. If you want to support us, this is the best way and you will be getting an epic plugin in return.

If you do not want to buy, you can simply stay on ChatControl Pro and get continued updates and support. If you have issues with Pro, simply report them, we aim to get them solved as for all other plugins, within 1-5 business days.

And lastly, the people who purchased ChatControl Pro on November 16th or later, or who contributed to ChatControl Pro or ChatControl Red by means of testing, providing localization files, or helping us code can get a free upgrade here.

 

Our New Vision For A Brighter Tomorrow

In the next 18 months, we’re going to build a new place where everyone can sell their products of services, without the risks of getting scammed or getting their PayPal account banned. Both paid and free products will be welcome.

In today’s time of uncertainty, we believe everyone should gain back their long-term job security that was once promised but is broken, and replace their income by doing something they enjoy and love without working for their time. This is what I did for the last two years, and I know how life changing and transforming this can be.

We believe everyone should have the possibility to trade their talent or skills for money, from home, without the hassle of starting a business.
