I got a message from mcMMO, which you should perhaps hide, because it doesn't really match the chat.
Spawn looks simple yet has details and various places for information and discovery.
Scoreboard, info messages in chat and holograms all have a similar styling which helps keeping a theme.
I found a small cake (custom head) in one of the houses. Sadly this didn't had any effect or even just text for clicking it. This would be a neat thing to have in order to encourage people to explore the spawn a bit more.
Having custom heads for information is a good idea to give said info without it looking annoying (i.e. bunch of holograms at one place).
Scoreboard shows all info that might be useful, even tho I don't see a reason as to why the Server IP has to stand there. I joined through it, so I should know it.
The WorldGuard message (Hey! Sorry, but you can't ...) should be disabled: /rg flag __global__ deny-message -e
Should I be able to see AsyncWorldEdit commands? Because I can.
You shouldn't hide your plugins. It's already clear that you're using AnimatedScoreBoard, AsyncWorldEdit, QuickShop, InfoHeads, TAB (most likely), mcMMO, Citizens, HolographicDisplays and GriefPrevention to name a few.
Claiming some, if not most to be custom is a bad lie. Just be honest and show what plugins you use and support the devs of those.
Some Item text is too long for people who have set their GUI settings to "auto", making it nearly impossible to read text. One example is the GUI for buying InstantStructures.
It's annoying when you die and lose your items, because you then respawn at the spawn and with the random tp being the only option can you kiss your items goodbye.
On another note: The website/store you have doesn't have proper SSL set up, which is never a good thing for a shop to have.
I wouldn't feel save buying stuff on a store that is using http and not https.

This is an updated review of play.custardcream.xyz
It will only list changes compared to the previous post.
I still receive a lot of messages and the default McMMO Scoreboard is useless.
The spawn is still the same weird place that doesn't make sense. Why does a survival server have the spawn as a SkyBlock island?
While the adminshop changed a bit (And got rid of those weird looking birch doors) does it still look weird.
Currency is now shown in tab. That's good.
You still hide your /plugins
Read my previous post of your server about why this is useless.
Your store links STILL default to http! I already told you that this is NOT GOOD for a online shop where people pay with real life money.
Change the links people get to use https and not http, because apparently does Tebex (I assume at least you use Tebex (aka. BuyCraft)) not change all http to https requests on its own.

Still existing and new issues:
While your server still has some issues are the most annoying ones (with one or two exceptions) fixed... It's still nothing new to the list of servers out there.
Right on join I get flooded with messages.
"You have automatically been assigned the path '...'"? What is that? Why do I see this? Should I care? There is no real welcoming message for me.
Please disable the deny message from WorldGuard using /rg flag <region|__global__> deny-message -e
The spawn itself looks... ok. The spawnpoint is a bit weird (Spawning at the edge of a small island.
The Buildings are basic (even too basic for my taste) and could require more attention to detail, especially since places like the adminshop look poor.
I don't fully like holograms for tutorials. Yeah they are better than signs, but it still is only reading and only covers 2 major things: What the server is about and what you can do in the future. It doesn't give any interactive way.
Also, at the end do you use a scoreboard for information? Why not using that from the beginning? It's easier to read than semi-bright holograms.
At the exit does it tell me to jump into the lake... But just walking towards it is enough.
The text of the /help menu is a bit longer than the inventory... Perhaps make it a bit smaller.
No clear indicator of how much money I have while there is clearly a currency used.
The tablist looks kinda bad. The red, gray and white color doesn't that well together and certain info isn't really required. Like why would I want to have the ping on the header but also on my name?
When typing "/plugin" does it already suggest me "/pluginhider"... Why even hide your plugins?
I already know that you're using McMMO (the old version. You should perhaps consider using the one of the original dev), GriefPrevention, Holographic Displays, PluginHider (obviously), WorldEdit, WorldGuard and some generic GUI menu (my guess is DeluxeMenus).
You for sure have nothing unique that needs to be "hidden". Also, it triggers twice for one command.
This is not related to plugins, but your store doesn't use HTTPS which is a HUGE security risk for a SHOP. Setup proper HTTPS.
I apparently finished a challenge or similar by walking 1,000 blocks and received 500 exp... Where? I don't have any Exp. Or is that your currency? I can't tell since there is no place to see this!
