Guys, minecraft 1.6 is upon us, reported to come in the next 6 days. What will happen?
First of all, you will be asked to update. Better not do it. I will be running the server as-is for those who do not upgrade and want their map. For the others, I will be running a parallel server on port 25565, with a temporary map WITHOUT protection, lots etc. once 1.6 comes out. Once the plugins etc will be updated, I will move the maps to the 1.6 server.
On a side note, the portals will most probably break on that update since the plugin author has abandoned it. I have currently not found any plugin that could replace it 1:1. We will see how we deal with this.
