    Anyone capable and willing to take up development can send me a private message, I personally do not have the time to continue to work on this and andypandy89 hasn't been online since February either.

    He better not, this is one of the best Skywars plugin up to date and we will need him soon to update SQL UUID conversions..that'd be a shame and let down if he just ditches the project.

    The kits don't support modded items. Whenever I try to make a kit give a modded item and reload skywars, it says "internal server error" or something. Could you make modded items compatible with kits?
