Patch 5.4 (plus a dev blog)

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.

Some of you may be wondering why this update isn't coming with full 1.17 support. While we want to support the new blocks and other features as soon as possible, and have completed a lot of the work to do so, our testing indicated that CPU usage was higher for many plots on 1.17. We are thus going to continue to bring you new features on 1.16 while we work on supporting 1.17 in a way that will maintain good server performance. Given that 1.18 is coming soon, it is possible that we may upgrade directly to 1.18.

Regarding world plots, we are currently exploring a variety of awesome features and scalability improvements that don't depend on world plots. Since we've moved away from such a major overhaul, expect more frequent server updates going forward!

Thanks for continuing to support the dev team. I'd like to give special shoutouts to the new devs KabanFriends, Reasonless, and Vattendroppen236, for their coding efforts and ability to adapt to frequently shifting priorities. Be sure to give them a thanks if you see them in-game!
