The Bukkit API stinks :/

It's designed so that everything uses the static instances in the Bukkit class (i.e. unit tests are almost impossible), and each update of the implementation brings an API update along with it (so, compared with Sponge which has its API as 5.0 and its implementations as the version number, Bukkit and CraftBukkit/Spigot have the same version and therefore little regard for breakages). Additionally, it utilizes older language features and therefore forces our code to be stuck in the past in terms of the newer techniques to minimize errors and make the code more readable.

Bukkit = :/

I decided to create a visual representation of the growth of ViaVersion over the span of its beginnings until today using Gource, this is what it looks like - a bit like a woman's shoe currently ;)

But there can only be one Matsv... The other one is an imposter.

I know
nvm
I meant I sent you this link so if you added the 1.9 boat supports

Yeah someone stole my name :P
@ridalarry I'm going to try your idea to let the boat ride on another entity

I really wanna do cool things with machine learning and Minecraft, just saw a post about konsolas being able to detect what hack client killaura is being used based on it

Thatd be cool

@Matsv
May 09 2016 19:20
Well yeah but the problem about that is that people can also use it to learn them the wrong way
Faizaan
@SirFaizdat
May 09 2016 19:21
The same can be said for any machine learning application, it needs a lot of data first
Mats
@Matsv
May 09 2016 19:21
Yeah true
But machine learning is fun, also wanna learn it when I have more time

The closest I've gotten to machine learning is playing around with TensorFlow

Unfortunately my teachers decided that they would like to fit several units into one month, so I have reports, government-standardized testing, and final examinations in the way of me and my code :(
