Tonight I've made it possible for all mobs to have the chance to drop a custom head! The chances go up if you have a looting sword too! But! This also applies to players! - But with players, once you've got one of their head, your chances of getting another drastically go down!
The max view distance on survival will now automatically change with performance!
Expect up to 32 view distance (most survival servers only have 10-12) most of the time, and if we ever get block lag the system will automatically bring it down. You can also see the current view distance on your sidebar (see image).
Tonight I've made some updates to the cosmetics crate, and all keys!
The cosmetic crate still gives out the same range of hats, but now you can right click with them whilst they're in your hand in order to put them on! So now you don't even need to be a peasant! If you have the old hats, Fred and I would be more than happy to replace them for you!

We have big news! Today we've ordered a new server system to move TMM over to. This means that within a day or two, we will announce a short maintenance period where all TMM services will be down (except the website).

I know custom mobs were only announced a few hours ago, but we have encountered a serious lag issue with them which we didn't detect during testing. Due to the software our server uses, the custom mobs plugin cannot perform properly.
So because of that, we will have to temporarily remove the custom mobs until a patch has released. Once we know about that, we'll let you know!
If you've been having issues with the server resource packs recently (purple and black cubes instead of the hat textures), we'd just like to let you know that we've issued a fix for it! You don't have to do any work for the fix to apply either!
We've been hard at work making new hats to come soon(tm) to the crates, and we were just adding them to the feather object, just like the other hats. However, we had forgotten that Minecraft has a...
We're testing out a new feature that both Scott and I think you'll love!
There is now 4 new mobs that spawn in the normal survival world: Shark, Jellyfish, Hermitcrab and Scorpid! There are some interesting things about them like very well done animations.
All done without client mods
