First off, the person you talked to, OldTCCreator (Who was not the developer of TC), told you not to use random mode because the pack he designed, and Martyn bought, was for use with FromImage, and in order to make it usable with RandomMode, you’d have to do some serious work to convert it. RandomMode was used by loads of people! My huge point is that OldTCCreator was not the developer, or a developer of Terrain Control, he just created a pack with it to sell to people. He was not connected to the plugin itself at all. TC still has lots of active developers, and lots of help from it’s community as well.
As for your research, I bet you did do a load of research, as I would when I find plugins for my server, but I believe you’ve been looking in the wrong place. Terrain Control is no longer supported on spigot. All of the builds can be found on the forums. 1.11.2 is far in the past, I use TC 1.12 for my creating, and have found no problems so far.
Here’s some more reliable information, straight from the actual developers:
And the forums:
The reason no issue tickets have been responded to is because they have been made in the wrong place. The proper directory is here: https://github.com/MCTCP/TerrainControl/issues TC has received plenty and plenty of updates, more than EWG actually. (Exactly 179 now to be exact) All of the builds are located here:
I’ll try to get a 1.12 test server up within a few days sometime in the next week if you want. If so, how many biomes do you want and what type do you want them to be? I’d be happy to help you along the way.
EDIT: If I do get one set up, it might be run off of my crappy wifi unless I can find a good deal. Just warning.
EDIT EDIT: In case I lead to confusion, TC is supported by Spigot, just not the plugin page on their forums
