Minecraft 1.2 happenings

Posted on March 2, 2012 at 2:00 AM

Hello all!


The obvious news is ofcourse that MC 1.2 (1.2.2 actually 1.2.3, thanks sean) has been released!

Please do NOT update yet, since you will not be able to play on our server, we run modded server that allows for plugins for money and stuff, and those need to updated as well. (Any timetable we could give you would be a gamble and a guess, please be patient, and we will keep you posted.)


That brings us to the even bigger news:

The Bukkit team, (the guys who program our modded server, for FREE, so we can have plugins and improved server stability) are now OFFICIALLY joining with Mojang (Notch' company) to make Minecraft officially server-mod-capable!!!

This awesome news means that for future MC updates there will be a lot less wait time for the server to update! (please keep in mind its still possible for induvidual plugins to need a fix for a new version, BUT since mojang releases snapshots 'n stuff those developers should have plenty chances to fix their sh*t before the actual update). MC 1.3 is expected to become legendary...


And for the occasion, Mojang has stated they are going to help the Bukkit team with the 1.2 update, so this update is supposed to go smoother already! 


Regards,


Matt & Ortwin

As you can see from the enthousiast post above, this is all reason for me to come out of hiding. I'm NOT planning to make a lengthy explanation why I needed this break, and why I didn't communicate properly to you, our players. I think many of you can understand the awkward feeling of uselessness we had on the server, and there was other crap.

I DO apoligize for this lack of care for you.

Luckely we have Matt, and I'd like to hereby thank him for being in existance. There is noone else I'd rather run a server with!

If 1.3 is going to be even more awesome, are we gonna trash everything and move onto that?

1.3 Is going to be awesome because of the technical developments, hopefully no new map content.

The 'new map for 1.2' comes in handy as well because of the double map hight... that will be awesome as well. Should we thank the x-rayers for that?

1.3+ will ofcourse bring new stuff, but I personally expect that to be craftable stuff, I think we have had the map-generation changes for now...
