I have used alot of plugins in the past since 1.2.2 most if not all are abandoned now which brings me to the reason only using 2 main plugins now, terraincontrol and denizen. The denizen plugin provides the opportunity to rewrite plugins like bloodmoon and give my own twist to it. However more important is that i feel confident about being able to maintain both denizen as terraincontrol in the future ( i dont like relying on things in general because it may eventiually be abandoned. ) so with the confidence of being able to maintain these core programs i can start huge projects like nlb-realms and ensure that it keeps working.
I really hope being able to fulfill these plans later on so we can keep on enjoying the possibilities given.
