As many of you know, Almura 3.0 has been a very long work in progress. Mojang completely changed the way models, graphics and pretty much all of the rendering works back in 1.8. Many of us on our team have been working tirelessly trying to get this update going. Within the past couple of week Zidane has made some break through progress on this process and we appear to be back up and running towards Almura 3.0 once again.

Here's what we know so far about Almura 3.0:
- will be based on the Minecraft 1.11.x codebase.
- server will be ran in a SpongeForge 1.11.x environment.
- a brand new user interface is being introduced into this version thanks to Grinch.
- lots of work has been done on the crafting system including complicated food and drink recipes
- will be including the following mods in the 3.0 distribution:
- Tinkers Construct
- Carpenter Blocks (Hopefully, the developer is testing alpha builds)
Here's a few things that are in the planning stages and will hopefully be completed for the launch of 3.0:
- brand new broker based economy system. You will purchase slots to place containers (chest) into a broker system. You will be able to visit cities/villages and players houses to purchase items. It will allow anyone anywhere to see what you have for sale.
- brand new farming system attributes such as temperature killing crops, dry rot, and "dying in the field" because you didn't harvest them in time.
- brand new farm animal attributes such as having a chicken lay eggs in a nest and wont wander off, removal of an animals ability to try and jump the fence they are standing next to. (We are already introducing the chance for farm animals to have "twins" if they are fed a certain type of feed.).
- brand new model and block system. Since we are moving vastly into the future with Sponge our abilities to do special things with new blocks and internal systems like what we did with Cache has exploded. We will continue to introduce systems such as this.
