Where in Sponge do you work the most on?
selectors in API/impl

3 years or more

What is the answer to the universe?

Nice talking to you, @kenzierocks!

:rocket: Sponge Progress :rocket:

Sponge is progressing as expected, but many parts of the APIare still left unimplemented.
Things needing implementations:

  • DataAPI - gabizou
  • MapAPI - modwizcode
  • Human Entity
  • Explosion Events

Something interesting that should be looked into is a Fake Name/Skin API.

A new addition to the Sponge Support Team is @FerusGrim, otherwise known as “The Grim Moderator.” Congratulations Ferus!

Clearly the best interview.


Thats a… short and to the point interview, i guess.

Also, screamingData, because nothing better than a /screamer command to annoy your griefers.

VelocityData should be implemented soon because I would like to do something with arrows.

Personally, I wish to see GameModeData implemented. Mainly because it sounds like a fun thing to mess around with, for a rookie like me.
