    Hey everyone!

    After a lot of hard work and effort we've finally finished updating Instances!

    Instances are now on their own separate server which you'll be able to connect to by doing /instance anywhere on InfiniteHeights. By being on their own server, it will give us more freedom and less hassle as we were experiencing in the past when trying to keep everything together on the Survival server. For now the classic dungeon Shimmerleaf Grove has returned but with many bug fixes, guaranteed drop rates, and a few other small changes that won't affect you.

    The spawn has been changed slightly but will still feel very familiar to you. The weapon traders and tinkerers have been fixed and upgrading should not give anyone a hassle anymore. Quests for Shimmerleaf Grove are handled much better now and will be much more accurate when it comes to completing quests and giving rewards (no more lost money, woo). Finally a few quality of life changes have been implemented into menus, NPCs, and a Disposal sign has been added to the spawn.

    These changes all came together to make a more modular and expandable system that's much more future-proof for new dungeons. Speaking of which, a second dungeon is already in the works! All I can say right now is that it's Egyptian-themed and will be out before the end of August (if all goes according to plan).

    Some of you may be wondering what Instances are and may have never played them. To those of you, I will direct you to these thread which explains the system in detail! Keep in mind they may be slightly dated, if that's the case let us know and we'll fix it!

    I have been told people are not receiving vote party boxes while in instances. Can you make a change to include people who are in instances so they don't miss out just because they happen to be doing a dungeon at the time of the vote party?

    People in Instances do not receive vote party crates because Instances take place on a different server. I am unsure as to whether it is possible to have cross-server parties for the plugin we use, but @Disc can definitely answer that part.
