Hello,

Checking in with some more good news about broken shit getting fixed. This time around, I've decided to address the east/west cannoning bug that has plagued Minecraft for an eternity.

When firing a cannon from these directions in medium to long range, TNT tends to drift eastward. By the time it impacts, it is no longer inline with the sand.

The bug is caused by a small amount of motion when TNT is primed. The bug has been fixed. Now, firing your cannon from east/west should no longer be any different than firing from north/south.

Happy raiding.

We've made some changes in an effort to nerf the overpowered effectiveness of roof/corner cannons. For those of you unaware, these are a fairly new type of cannon deployed from the corner of a target base and can be used to land hybrid shots on top of a roof with amazing accuracy and consistency. There is no known defense to these cannons.

From now on, falling blocks (such as sand or gravel) that exceed the height limit will automatically drop as an item. While this does not completely prevent the use of roof cannons, it does prevent them from being used on bases that are built high enough.

Greetings!

We've recently made a change to the way animal mob spawning works. Animals no longer require grass blocks to spawn and may spawn at any height. They do, however, still require a high enough light level to spawn.

I hope this change inspires you with some cool ideas. :)

Hey!

Checking in with some awesome news. Some of you may or may not know, through the Essentials plugin it has always been possible to perform teleport glitches if you were saavy enough to understand how it worked, however that day has come to an end.

I am happy to say that teleport glitching has been completely eliminated. As a side effect, Essentials teleports will now take you directly to where you asked to go, without messing with your destination coordinates at all. This means if a teleport destination is in mid air and above lava, you will probably fall and burn. ;)

With an increasing number of Minecraft accounts being hacked into each day, it's important that you take extra precaution to keep your account safe. To help you do this, we have added an optional two-factor authentication mechanism for adding an extra layer of security to your account.

For you to be able to use two-factor authentication, you must have a device such as a smartphone that will allow you to install an authenticator app. I recommend installing Google Authenticator, which is freely available for both iOS and Android platforms.

Once you've installed the app, go ahead and connect to Hybrid Cannon and type /2fa. This will spawn a map in your inventory with a barcode that looks something like this:

If you are using Google Authenticator, you can scan this code directly using the "Scan Barcode" feature. If your authenticator app does not support barcode scanning, you will have to manually enter...
