Name changing support improved

Posted by on Feb 10, 2015 in Minecraft

Last week when Mojang enabled name changes I quickly wrote support in to our software and services but it still required you to tell a member of staff that you’d changed your username.

Today that requirement has been dropped. When you connect to our servers with a new username it will automatically detect you’ve changed your name, convert everything over from your old username to your new username and announce in chat to everyone online what your old name was and what your new name now is.

The only plugin we use that still doesn’t support name changes is Deadbolt but Adrian is working on that one and I believe he has already completed the code and it’s now being tested to give you access to your deadbolted chests that are still under your previous names.

Thank you for your patience while we finish the final touches on name support.
