Towny has been updated to 1.18, bringing forth a slew of new features. Let's dive straight into it.
New Cave Generation
The height of the world has been increased: the maximum height is now y 320, and the minimum height is y -64. The bedrock layer that previously occupied y 0 has been transformed into deepslate, and below it you will find 1.18's breathtaking new caves.

Item Conversion: What You Need to Know
The updated version of Slimefun that Towny now runs has a new way of recognising items: it searches for invisible tags on them, rather than looking at their name and lore.
When you load a chunk, all Slimefun items that are inside the chunk's chests, barrels and other container blocks will have these invisible tags automatically added to them. Converted items will have an extra NBT tag (the number of tags can be seen by enabling debug tooltips) and may have a different texture.
Slimefun items that are inside enderchests will not automatically convert. You can convert Slimefun items in your enderchest by simply holding them in your hand and right-clicking.
Like on Nations, the majority of items should convert without issue. A few items may fail to convert and will no longer function. In this case, you can ask for a refund through Discord (although very cheap items may not be refunded, for the sake of saving time).
The time frame for converting items ends on February 1 2022. It's as simple as running around your town and right-clicking any Slimefun items you might have stored in your enderchest. Any items that are not converted after this date will not be refunded.
Please note that Slimefun items that are made after today will not stack with converted old items.
The vast majority of Slimefun items have been retextured, including runes. To see them properly, ensure that you are running the latest version of the server resource pack. You no longer require Optifine to see Slimefun textures.
The following items, machines and components have been added to Slimefun:
This is our provisional new website, which for now succeeds our old Enjin-based website. Enjin has served us well since 2013, but its age was quickly becoming apparent and the company has shifted its focus away from its web management division.
This new website includes a new suggestions page to replace the unstructured (and often chaotic!) #suggestions and #feedback-discussion channels on Discord. It also has a resources section where you can share your own texture packs and schematics with the community. Ban appeals, staff EOIs and wiki contributor applications can be found through the "More" dropbar on the navigation bar.
Please let us know if you find any problems!
***Admin note: Staff EOIs are submitted through a form once again. The link redirects you to that form, and the link is included in the "More" dropbar.
