Minecraft 1.6

As you may or may not know, Minecraft 1.6 is right around the corner. Minecraft 1.6 is due on July 1st (Porky_Sporky’s birthday :D), but the server WILL NOT be ready for Minecraft 1.6 for a while. We are not resetting the map, but Spigot (our server software) will take a bit to update to Minecraft 1.6 and then our plugins must then be updated to be compatible with Spigot for Minecraft 1.6 as well. This process can take up to a week, so be aware of any news on the website regarding Minecraft 1.6.

Goals for Minecraft 1.6:

  1. New spawn?
  2. Builder plots near spawn
  3. Towny?
  4. Increased stability
  5. Skylands RPG world possible
  6. Removal of creative from main world, usage of flatlands for creative tasks.
  7. Permissions fixes and updates
  8. Texture pack update (Same texture pack, but updated)
  9. Bug fixes!

Bugs to be fixed:

  1. Inventory being cleared when disconnecting in creative
  2. Flatlands not working
  3. Portals not working properly for all users
  4. Random server crashes
  5. Timeout error when trying to log in

As usual, this will be hopefully done before we launch for 1.6. The server will not be down, but you CAN NOT UPDATE TO 1.6. When the server description is prefixed by [1.6], you can then update.

P.S.: Keep a backup of your 1.5 JAR file (located in %APPDATA%/.minecraft/bin for Windows users) prior to updating. You can swap out the new Minecraft JAR with your backup easily by renaming them (i.e. minecraft.jar and 1_5_backup.jar, minecraft.jar and 1_6_backup.jar).

Backend Updates

The server will be undergoing maintenance on the back end of the server, so there may be server shut downs occasionally. The server will be running on a regular schedule tomorrow.

Amazing Builds of the Week

Here are some amazing builds by an architect named “oldkitbag”. He and Lonnie3 built our spawn when Livecraft was a PVP server. He’s currently our only server architect, and here’s why; also, thrown into the mix is a mansion built by Porky_Sporky.


New Backup Site

Hey, everyone.

As a result of some down-time, a simple backup site has been pulled up. The backup website will contain basic information on what’s going on when the server’s experiencing difficulties and whatnot.

You can reach this site here: http://bck.livecraft.us/

It might be a good idea to bookmark that as a convenience.

Cloudflare Services Enabled

Hey, Livecraft is now backed by Cloudflare. The server will work the same exact way, but we’re behind Cloudflare’s network, preventing attacks on the website and server.
