Patch 5.4

I'm happy to announce that Patch 5.4 has been released!

This update comes with a great new code feature. the dictionary data structure. Dictionaries hold key-value pairs, similar to tables. You can use them to store information and retrieve them with keys. With efficient lookup times and a variety of supported code actions, dictionaries should become a valuable tool in everyone's coding toolkit.

This update also introduces some new cosmetics for fun times at spawn, as well as a variety of smaller changes and fixes throughout the server. Notably, the rank requirement for /plot whitelist has been dropped; whitelists are now available to all.

Be sure to check out /patch in-game for the full list of changes.

When you play a competitive online game, you expect competitive systems that compare you against other players. On a creative platform, you don’t expect that, and the existence of such a system honestly feels kind of forced.

I posed this question to many of you in the suggestions server, and the responses were overwhelmingly in favor of trying out the removal of the creator points system. As such, we will be disabling creator points for about 1 month, after which we'll either bring back CP or move on without it. During this time, you will not gain or lose any CP.

In place of creator points, we're looking to provide some more fun stats for you to...
