    Community Team Updates:
    • Build Team
      • The Build Team has made good progress on the next major event build. There is still a lot more to do before it is released, but it's all starting to come together.
      • The Build Team has finished a new outpost build for the waste spawns. It will be released when EMC updates to 1.19!
    • Contribution Team
      • The Contribution Team made various corrections and improvements to Wiki pages last month. If you find a mistake on the Wiki or have a suggestion to improve it, send a message to the Contribution Team Members!

    • Do you know somebody who would make a good staff member? Recommend them here!
    • We hope you had fun opening your Time Capsule! The Time Temple is now closed, but it will open again next year.
    Don't forget to use /report to let staff members know about activity that breaks the rules!

    Developer Updates:
    • Various bugs were fixed for the Games Server update. The first part of the update will be released soon. It will contain about three staff-hosted games and six games that do not require staff to play.
    • Progress has been made on the Empires update (Not Outposts). It is nearing a releasable state with more features to be added post-release.
    • Minecraft 1.19 is scheduled to release on June 7th! We will add protocol connection support within about a day of Mojang's release. You will still be able to connect with 1.18.2. Please be patient while the developers work to update EMC to this new version. An announcement about the wastelands reset will come out before the update so that you will have time to gather your belongings.

    Please remember to report any bugs to pmdev.emc.gs!
