  • If you are interested in developing Cuberite’s core or plugins, please do not hesitate to join the forum or Discord server. Cuberite development has slowed down a bit due to lack of free time among regular contributors, as well as larger changes in Minecraft 1.13 and 1.14, so any new contributions are greatly appreciated.
  • Feel free to donate to Cuberite through Liberapay or Bountysource. Donations are used to cover server hosting expenses.
