Legacy versions

Minecraft version 1.9 was released on February 29, 2016, replacing 1.8, which was 1 ½ years old until then. Controversial changes, such as the introduction of a new combat system, divided the Minecraft community. As a result, many players and servers refused to update to the newer versions. To date, a not inconsiderable part of the Minecraft servers are running on version 1.8. This not only misses the opportunity to use new and exciting features, it also makes work more difficult for developers. If a developer wants to support versions 1.8 to 1.16 with a plugin, he or she has to program and test 9 different versions. This increases the workload many times over, since the internal structure of the server software changes with each version.

From 1.13

Mine-Home has decided to no longer support versions 1.8 to 1.12 with future updates of plugins and modules. This has the great advantage that future updates can be developed and tested more quickly. In addition, plugins can now also use the functions of the latest Minecraft versions.

For 1.8 to 1.12 servers

For outdated servers there is the option of downloading legacy versions that still support 1.8 to 1.12. These can be downloaded directly from the plugin page. However, these versions will no longer be updated. It's a good idea to update to the latest Minecraft versions to take full advantage of all the latest features.

Compensate for the disadvantages of the new version

Many players prefer the 1.8 combat system, which is why Mine-Home offers a free plugin that restores it by 100%. Attack delay, blocking or the left hand - all no longer a problem with OldCombat.
