    Wonderufl plugin ! I was looking for an update from BioSeasons but this plugin completely replaces it and is so much more (months length, message per day/night/season, calendar...)

    Keep it up !

    I'd just advice for some more functions (optional) which I saw a long time ago in another plugin (discontinued :SeasonsPlusPlus) :

    • the necessity to wear leather (or maybe any armour, or be near a torch) in winter due to the cold. or it would act as does poison, losing one heart at a time. Swimming during winter would make you slowly die of cold )
    • the ability to set plant growth rate (for potatoes, wheat and so on) according to seasons (200% summer, 100% spring/autumn, 0% winter for example) which would add much to the seasonal gameplay (farm in summer, harvest during autumn or you will have nothing to store for winter)
    • the ability to set rain frequency during seasons (actually, we can only change it as always ON or OFF in your plugin, but it would be nice to be able to set it as a frequency instead)
    • the ability to change the settings of day/night during months instead of seasons ( it'd make give the solar course a more natural way, instead of changing it only four times a year, it'd be smoother)

    Thanks anyway :)

    Hi, this plugin used to work great, but ever since the introduction of the calendar system in 1.7 the biomes no longer change on their own.

    I can change them manually by season, although changing the date in any way in regards to the calendar system does not change it to the respective season. Also, as I see some others have reported, the calendar date never changes on its own. At first I was excited to see that I no longer had to preload my terrain before using the plugin (else I'd just get that season's biome), but now I've realised that it was just that the biomes weren't actually changing on their own at all.

    Doesn't work without ProtocolLib, doesn't with it (although then I get the same console errors that CurtisVL had posted a ticket for). Other than that, the console log is completely clean. It doesn't work if it is the only plugin running.

    The other features in the season ymls work such as precipitation and day duration, so for what reason the calendar/seasons/etc won't change is beyond me. I don't know what to say other than it is broken, although I wonder how it has been around for a year in this state if it is not just me.

    Personally I would have preferred it without a calendar system in the first place. Luckily v2.3.2 still works fine. Although whatever chunks are loaded do not change season in any version, but I think that is a problem with 1.8.1 Spigot. Fortunately, that isn't much of a problem for me because I set mine to change only once a day before hard reset.

    EDIT: Actually, I am pleased to find that in Spigot 1.8.1 the plugin can be loaded without having to preload terrain with v2.3.2. It didn't do that back in Craftbukkit 1.7.x And apparently the chunks will change to the correct season once they are unloaded and reloaded. Not sure about in v3.x though. Why did it all change anyways? It worked perfectly fine, heh.

    Having the different hours of daylight and moonlight hours is a nice touch; but I've had a problem with the moon cycling through all it's different phases , as it travels through the sky, from moon-rise to moon-set. Only after changing length of Day and Night to 600 each for all seasons, did the problem resolve.
