New year, new Traincraft release

Well plans were to get 019 and the rewrite's first alpha (TiM) out last month, but things got a bit hectic, between holidays, my car breaking down 3 times, and 2 days lost due to discord raids (which we had to change our invite link to fix), we were on no shortage of delays.

019 Is going into it's last stage of bug testing now, short of something else breaking last minute, the code is done and the new content is in, and we're on schedule to release very soon.
This also means we finally have a changelog ready, which will be at the bottom of the post.

Speaking of future things, we are also working on a collaboration for getting the official server up and running, development for it was stalled there for a good few months, as it was very hard to find help to do the hard tasks.
And we could still use a few more hands on deck, specifically reliable builders who can do styles from 14th to 16th century while using a rather limited set of mods.
Send a DM to Mutt_1066#4200 on our discord if you'd like to apply.

I wanna take the chance to thank the community for all the patience around this release, and all the work that was done on the new content.
This is just the beginning, 2019 is going to be a big year for Traincraft.

Happy New Year everyone!
