This is an organized list compiling the version updates for Minecraft, plugins, mods, gametypes, and proxies for February 25th. Tons of updates and additions to our favorite pastime, from incessant bug fixing to new mods. You’re sure to not get bored with all these updates.
First, the Mod Packs. All of Fabric 3 stomps onto the scene with tons of bug fixes along with retexturing of AE2. Rather than a changelog, I am proud to announce the release of FTB Endeavour, so welcome! We can’t wait to see what sort of modpack it evolves into. New Beginnings just updates all of its mods. The Final Frontier 2 removed three mods while updating the rest. TNP Limitless 3 has a major update with tons of new features such as tips, new mods, new mobs, new quests, updated forge version, and fully updating every mod that could be updated. Valhelsia 2 added a ton of mods while updating the present mods.
Next, the Mod Based. Forge 1.15.2 makes a fix for an issue with the food bar.
Further on, the Plugin Based. Paper 1.16 provides no public changelog. Spigot makes a fix for pathing with special characters. Tuinity provides no public changelog.
Our favorite one here, Vanilla. Vanilla updates to snapshot 21w07a which brings many additions and changes. Grimstone, a new type of stone variant is a new block that spawns below y=0 all the way to y=-64. This along with many bug fixes and tweaks concludes the snapshot.
The Proxies have no changes.
Lastly, the Gametypes. Caveblock, Creative, Hardcore, Hunger Games, and KitPVP are all updated to 1.16.5.
