I upgraded the server to 1.5 today and made a chain of mistakes. Essentially the issue is that the ‘world’ map got reset to the status of 4 days ago, darklands and nether are fine. For those of you who were on 1.5 already and on the temp map this should not matter at all. For the others who are affected, I am really sorry about this. What went wrong?
- I did not make a manual backup before moving map files
- I made a mistake when copying the files
- The backup failed since 26th. Apparently it does not work when the temp server is running for some strange reason.
As a reminder: There will be NO refunds whatsoever. It’s in the FAQ, read it please.
Upgrade issues in general:
- The mall is off since the plugin was handed over to a new developer, waiting for the update to the latest version
- Lightning will cause fire. The fire should not however spread as all other fire too. It will hurt you too if you get hit. Rain seems to have a bug in that it might not rain in some areas. Don’t ask me why.
- Please check all the functions of minecarts etc and tell me if something is broken
- You will have to replace your gold blocks on your minecart tracks with powered rails sooner or later. I will make them work for now as normal, but please work on removing them!
- Sandstone does not seem to kill minecarts. Trying to fix it.
- The contest for the Egyptian statue will be extended for a week (8th of May)
