Platform Update 23/06

Currently, this post only applies to our NA network. EU and AS are to follow soon.

As the Nether Update starts rolling out today, all our networks are being updated to our newest platform version. Here are some of the notable changes included:

Tweaks

  • Block cracking is now properly updated when changing player state

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed player inventory becoming unusable in rare circumstances
  • Fixed avatars on podiums not rendering correctly
