/creative is now accessible by moderators.
/tps is now available for greens+.


Fixed an issue where variables in a namespace A using a type from namespace B sometimes fail to load their fields. (If namespace A was loaded before namespace B).

10.4.9 (2020/05/14)


Global Points have been renamed to Speedrun Score in an effort to make the name more intuitive.
You may also call it Minr Clout. You know who you are.


Added @fast and @slow script operators.
By default, the @command, @bypass or @console script operators have a one-tick delay (like @delay 1).
@fast will remove that delay for all subsequent command operators.
@slow will re-add it.
Having either one multiple times in a row without the other is legal.

Added String[] String.split(String separator), which splits the string based on the separator into a list of pieces around the separator. For example: "hi world".split(" ") would yield: ["hi", "world"].
Added Double[] system::getTPS() which returns a list of size 3, containing the average TPS over the last 1 minute, 5 minutes and 15 minutes.


Fixed nested @for loops erroneously failing to compile.
Fixed setting max health using player.setMaxHealth() resulting in errors when joining a map, setting a checkpoint and in other arbitrary scenarios.
Fixed the left-hand sides of a @var assignment incorrectly parsing if the target expression was a field of an array.

10.4.7 (2020/04/19)


Fixed an issue where removal of food was not saved, if this was the only action on a map.
Fixed an issue where having multiple constructors for one type would result in only one of the constructors remaining after server restart.

10.4.6 (2020/04/12)


Fixed an issue where Player variables were not loaded correctly (resulting in null).


Added "Bunny" hat, which requires finding 10% of the eggs in the open world of Egghunt 2.0.

radsin(), radcos(), radtan()
radarcsin(), radarctan(), radarctan()
Functions with the rad prefix take radians, all others take degrees.


Minr Bot will no longer use markdown in messages.


Visiting another player's home would set the target player's checkpoint mode to home, instead of the executor's.
Fixed /checkpoint times <page> checking for map codes before map names.
Fixed Float/Double values with the literal xxxE-xxx failing to parse.
Fixed various commands that take namespaces requiring the same namespace specifier. (/variable define casino_lb DBtable db would fail even though DBtable is a type in casino_lb)
Fixed an issue where in some cases Int(someList[0]) (or similar) would fail to compile.
Fixed @for loops within a @if statement failing to execute in special cases.
Fixed @done not showing a parse-error when it was put on the wrong depth level.

10.4.4 (2020/02/21)

10.4.2 (2020/01/10)


Fixed 100% not being attainable, due to aliased maps counting twice to total points.

10.4.1 (2020/01/06)


Fixed default values of relative variables not being loaded (and therefore being lost after a restart).

10.4.0 (2019/12/20) - Scripts 2.1


Added lists types.
They are automatically created for every non-list type.
Lists are defined using X[], where X[] is a list of type X (e.g. Int[]).
Lists can be initialised with X[a, b, ..., z]. (Where a, b, ..., z are zero, one, or more instances of X)
Values can be retrieved using X[index]; to set a value simply assign to this (e.g. X[0] = 1).
List indicies are zero-based.
To append to a list, simply assign a value to an index one greater than the last item in the list.
e.g., if @define Int[] x = Int[1, 2, 3], append to x with @var x[x.length()] = 4.
Accessing an out of bound index will yield an IndexOutOfBoundsException (which will terminate the script).
Lists have the following methods:
List.length(), which reports the number of items in the list.
List.remove(Int index), which removes the item at the specified index from the list.
List.clear(), which removes all items from the list.
List.reverse(), which reveres the order of the items in the list.
List.shuffle(), which will randomise the order of the items in the list.

List Namespace
A range() function was added to a new list namespace as a convenience.
Int[] range(Int start, Int end) will generate a list of numbers from start (inclusive) to end (exclusive).
This allows you to iterate through every index in a list with @for Int i in range(0, list.length())

Added for-in loops, to iterate over any iterable.
Lists are the only iterable at this time.
Loops are defined with @for X item in X[], and terminated with @done
This example loop will print 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 to the player (on separate lines).
@for Int i in Int[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
@player {{i}}
To loop through a range of numbers (like for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)), use list::range().
@for Int i in range(0, 10)

Relative Variables
It is now possible to retrieve the value of a relative variable for specific players.
Simply use relativeVar[Player]. (Where Player is an instance of a Player type: e.g., Player("rickyboy320"))
Note that as this requires a Player instance, UUIDs will be required for retrieving values when players are offline. (Will fail otherwise)
Like lists, assigning to relativeVar[Player] will set their value.

Whitespace will now be preserved when importing from Hastebin, and will be exported as well.

Script Creation
When creating a script, the co-ordinates of the script will be displayed. If you accidentally misplace a script this will allow you to easily remove the script.

Math Namespace
Added Int floor(Double x) and Int ceil(Double x), which floor and ceiling a number respectively.

Player Type
Added sendMessage(String message) to send a raw message directly to a player.


Added /challenge join <challenge> <player> and /challenge finish <challenge> <player> for administrators.
Fixed /checkpoint removealltimes not working on maps.


/discord verify now correctly instructs the player to post their verification code in #verify_here, instead of #general_discussion.

Server Configuration

Updated to 1.15.1 (Paper #15)


Fixed c_dric's bug, where setting a field would spawn multiple script runners (causing delays to be skipped).
Fixed tab-completion of namespaces only showing namespaces that begin with lowercase letters.

Updated checkpoints to Hardcore 9.0.
Old checkpoints will automatically be converted.


Display names of items are now accessible.
Use Boolean Item.hasDisplayName() and String Item.getDisplayName().


Self-targetting /rocket is now restricted to mods and ops due to abuse.
Using /rocket as a non-operator no longer invalidates runs.

10.3.4 (2019/08/23)

Team Chat

Added /teamchat (aliases are /teammsg, /tchat, /tm and /t).
Overrides the vanilla command for better Minr-specific support.
/teamchat <message> will send a message to everyone on your team.
Players must be on a team that isn't a rank team to send or receive a message.
Alternatively, one can subscribe to a team channel for a team they aren't on.
Subscribers can send and receive messages in any channel they are subscribed to, regardless of the team.
The syntax is: /teamchat <team> <message>.
Subscribers are not preserved between restarts.
Subscribers can be added with /teamchat subscribe <team> <player>.
Subscribers can be removed with /teamchat unsubscribe <team> <player>.
Subscribers can be listed with /teamchat subscribe <team>.


Hats now support player heads with custom skins.
Cosmetic GUI items now also support player heads with skins.

10.3.3 (2019/07/22)


Addition of the /spectator command for Moderators.

Added expiration feedback to the call request.


Added support for coloured player and objective names in the MSC Scoreboard API.

Server Configuration

All schematics have been converted to the 1.13 schematic format (.schem), which should fix irregularities in blocks and crashes (such as in Inaros).
Updated to Paper 1.13.2 #632


Fixed issue with the command '/prefix reset' not taking arguments as intended.
Fixed command usage of the /type constructor define command: removed <returnType>.
Fixed 'This person has not requested a teleport to you within the last 5 minutes' message in /call: it now reflects the actual 1 minute expiration time.
Fixed adding of maps to a Challenge failing, but the message saying it succeeded: added more checks on the command to inform of failure.
Fixed removal of empty namespaces displaying a failing message, while the action succeeded.
Fixed attempts of removing a built-in namespace throwing a console exception.

10.3.1 (2019/05/24)
