After several weeks of hard work, we're happy to offically announce the addition of a Plugin Store into the game. The basic idea is to allow plugin creators to share their works to a broader range of players. This is achieved by offering plugins in a single place and making installing them as easy as one button press.

Your plugins
Upload plugin


What's the advantage for players?
-One single place for plugins right in the game
-One button press to download and install plugins
-Management of installed plugins
-Quality control for plugins
-Automatic updates for plugins

What's the advantage for plugin creators?
-Broader audience
-It's easy, as the upload form is integrated directly into the forum. Also you don't have to create a zip or plugin file out of your plugin yourself.
-Updates are easy to offer
-Authors receive up to 5% of the diamonds that people spent on their plugins

OMG! Will you just upload my plugins there?
No, it's up to you to upload them to the new platform. Uploading a plugin is as simple as filling out the upload form.

In order for us to be able to provide this service and to keep it alive the minimum price for plugins in the Plugin Store is 30 diamonds. At that price point players can alternatively watch an ad to download a plugin.

There's no need for players nor plugin creators to switch to the new platform. You can still use the old way of plugin distribution. To prevent conflicts managed plugins won't yield error messages. Technically they are loaded after regular plugins.

DSA is a whole package. Purchase unlocks DSA additional feature as and costs 50 diamonds less than the traditional way.
