Because the polls were fairly close on whether to keep the Thirst plugin and the Disease plugin or not, we've decided it'd be best to take them down until we can tweak them to make them better as it is evident most of the features on the plugins add negative effects to the game with no real benefit.
I will be coding my own Disease plugin that will add buffs to be healthy, with a more tolerable temperature system, easier ways to raise and cool yourself, and so on. This will take me some time, so be patient if you were one of the players who liked the plugin. The Thirst plugin may not be entirely coming back due to players disliking the concept altogether regardless of what kind of tweak, suggestion, or idea that was come up with.
Apologies for the inconveniences in gameplay.
