Changes to the donator system

As you all know, we have 3 donator levels:

  1. Non-Donators
  2. Donators: Users who donated once (including someone who donated 1 USD 5 years ago)
  3. DonatorPlus: Users who have an active, recent donation.

With the server getting older, I think the 2. level does not make any sense anymore. I will therefore remove it. We will downgrade all “Donators” to normal users in a first step and then rename all the DonatorPlus to Donators. The privileges of DonatorPlus users will stay the same, “Donator” users will lose theirs and get the normal user rights.

1.9 Upgrade process

Since we are talking about 1.9 already (see previous blog post), here some preliminary announcement of what will probably (and more specifically, what will probably NOT) happen:

  • The new version does not seem to have any significant block or biome additions except for the end. Therefore, we will not reset any worlds for this upgrade. If you want a world to be reset, you can as always ask for that in the forum, but that will have nothing to do with the 1.9 release. Unless the news comes out that there is some significant biome changes, I highly doubt there will be any good reason for a reset.
  • We will not have any temporary servers for 1.9. Once minecraft upgrades to 1.9, it will be your responsibility to downgrade to 1.8.* until our server can handle 1.9 version clients. Here is a manual on how to do that.
  • We will upgrade as soon as possible. As usual, this will take some time until the server software upgrades, the required plugins upgrade and until I have the time to actually do the upgrade and to make sure nothing breaks. I cannot control really how long this takes, but please rest assured I will do everything I can to do it as soon as possible.

If there are any other questions, please ask here.

Good news everyone!

So as you know, Minecraft 1.9 is around the corner, maybe even already in March. In the past, upgrading was always a huge issue because we used a piece of software called craftbukkit for our server. The authors of craftbukkit basically refused to shoot at a moving target and only started seriously working on a release for the new minecraft version after it was released. So it took some months until the release of the server and then some more until the plugin authors would be finished adapting the plugins to the new craftbukkit version.

Since we are using spigot now, there is a big change. First of all, the makers of spigot always tried to get a version out that is at least able to be used with the new minecraft version’s clients, even if one would not be able to use all new features (like new blocks) from the beginning. But they would gradually upgrade the client to eventually catch up with the latest features.

For the next version, they have been working in the background already since some time to make sure they are able to launch as soon as possible. So they made an announcement that should plugin makers help preparing to release compatible versions for 1.9. We still might have to wait some time until we can actually upgrade, but I hope this time it will take only days or possibly weeks but not months.

Let’s wait and hope for the best.

Block logs now also include containers!

You can now lookup containers in the block log for your lots in empire and kingdom! Please take a look at the page, you can then see what has been put into and taken from chests and furnaces etc. It even shows how coal gets consumed by the furnace.

So if there is a dispute now who might have taken items from your chests, please go and check those yourself and resolve the issues with the people who have taken the items directly!
