*** Taken at different times
This is plugin free for small clusters, but if your cluster has more than 20 players online chat will start working as normal again
You will need to purchase the full version of the plugin to keep using it for larger servers.
I will let you have 2 HWID's for the price of 1 if you show me they are used for the same cluster.

If you would like to upgrade the plugin, send $10 to:
Ethereum - 0xB0400f0F4C2F272209B50e2D62E618b3ff982e6D
Bitcoin - 3AM21nisMdk7c8n9Qcr95pLzTER8vCJpB9

then message me on the ArkServerApi discord with your HWID
It should be printed to the console when you load the plugin.

If you love the plugin and would like to see more features/plugins by me feel free to donate more!

Original Credits go to Tsebring and his open source work here on Github, Though almost all of it has been rewritten since then.
Special thanks to Lethal & Substitute for all their help on the ArkServerApi discord!

For support please respond on this thread or reach out on my support discord

Lastly, this is my first plugin and there WILL be bugs!!!
Please report them as best you can (as many details as possible) and in a respectful way.
I'll deal with bugs ASAP.
Feature requests from people that upgrade the plugin will be prioritized.
