It Just Might Happen

It just Might happen tries to implement alot of those small things that many have thought of through the time of MineCraft. The plugin started out as a reality implementation, but it is moving to something in between, with the many requests to different effects.

I am pretty sure that some of the effects would be hated on one server but loved on another. That is why the v1.1.4 offered full control of almost every option to each effect. If you only like 1 effect, the turn the rest off, or make them happen so rarely as fit.
