Yesterday I was trying to add plugins to my server, but when I joined on the server, nothing worked. I had tried restarting my server several times. The plugins weren't working, (by the way, plugins are programs that you install on your server to make things look different I sometimes get mixed up about the difference in plugins and mods, but I am pretty sure that plugins can only change the way things look for you, and mods can only add to the game. Here is a more detailed article about the difference.) After that I asked the support team on apex's website, and they said that I didn't have Spigot installed on my server, I thought maybe I would have to pay extra if I wanted Spigot installed, so I thought perhaps I could upload the Spigot file to the server files. So I googled how to install Spigot on a server, but I kept getting the result "how to make a Minecraft Spigot server." Then I texted Nicholas about the problem. He asked for the username and password for the panel login, and I gave it to him, and he logged in and quickly found out how to install Spigot on the server, so he set up Spigot, and now I think the plugins will work I will still have to try it, but I do know that Spigot is now installed. (If you would like to join my server on Minecraft, here is the IP address: BillyBones.apexmc.co if you do not know how to join a server Here is instructions.)
My Minecraft server runs on Java Edition 1.15. A version of Minecraft is the update of Minecraft. Right now, there are 15 updates of Minecraft on the java. Usually, each update introduces new blocks, new mobs, and new items like bees, foxes, etc. The way you can connect to a server on Minecraft launcher where you log in and then you launch the game.
There are two Minecraft versions for a pc:
Minecraft Java edition costs 26.00$ for a one-time fee, and Minecraft windows 10 edition costs 29.00$ for a one-time fee. Usually, most people will buy one or the other. They both have separate apps to download so they aren't the same app when opening Minecraft. But Minecraft Java edition has more experienced players because everybody who plays on Java edition is playing on a pc and pc's are easier to move around when playing. But most people who play on windows 10 edition are playing on Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo so since they are playing on controllers it makes it harder to move around and it is overall harder to play than on a pc. I play on both versions of Minecraft, but I prefer playing on Java edition.
About six days ago, an app called Minecraft Earth came out. Minecraft Earth is an AR-based game. It was created by Mojang, which owns Minecraft. Minecraft earth is another game based off of the original pc Minecraft game. Minecraft earth is a game where you can walk around your neighborhood and collect Minecraft animals. What I think is the best part of the app is that I can build a house from the resources I collected from around my area, and I can see my build in real life through the phone. AR stands for "Augmented Reality." This means you can see virtual objects through your phone screen, and you can see the real world at the same time. It's like a virtual object placed on top of the phone camera. For example, if you walked outside and looked on the ground you would just see what you normally see, but if you looked at the phone with the app open you will see a little Minecraft world that you couldn't see without your phone. The game took about maybe a year or so for them to make the game. But it is a very fun game to play, especially with other friends!
