No 1.5.2 Update yet. Please downgrade!

I tried today to upgrade to 1.5.2, but it mainly failed due to a non-compatible multiverse plugin which runs all our inventories, portals and worlds.

For those who are new to the upgrade process, here is a recent email that I have sent out to someone who asked me to upgrade the server. I know this sounds like a rant, but I want people to understand that upgrading a client is nothing like upgrading a server.

I am aware that people like you who do not know how to downgrade then cannot play. And believe me, the last thing I want is to have an outdated server.

However it’s normally a several hour process. I have to wait for up to 25 plugin authors to update their software, download it, reconfigure several hundred lines of config files and then make several test runs to make sure everything works. However, if you go research plugins like Multiverse, which we need to run all portals, inventories and worlds, you will see that they did not release an official update since November last year. Not to mention the main server software, bukkit, which still failed to release a finished version since 1.4.7.

To make a long story short: I will upgrade as soon as I can. Right now, I cannot. People asking me to do so or even telling me that I should does not help.

You will have to learn how to downgrade, just like everyone else.

If you take even a fraction of the time it would take me to upgrade (which is not even possible right now), to learn how to use google and then to downgrade, you would be able play.

  1. Is this the first time that in the servers history that “I want a pony!” can be used literally? Because, I want a pony!

  2. Damn, guess I either wait or play around downgrading. Not so bad though, the server deserves patience.

  3. Good things come to those who wait. And good things come to those who just stay and play too.

  4. For those of you who have upgraded. There is a new launcher that can switch back and forth from 1.5.1 to 1.5.2. You can get this new launcher at

    Happy Minecrafting! =)

    • thanks for the notice! I am attending a conference this week, and will have time on the weekend to look at it

  5. Well you can take this as my official resignation from your server. I have grown quite tired of the way you talk down to your players when it comes to things like this. I can understand that you have a real life outside of Minecraft and that is to be respected. But one thing that I can not respect is how you treat your players. Maybe it’s just me, but some of the things I have seen you say on these forums rubs me the wrong way. And if that offends anyone else on this server then I sincerely apologize for it.

    So go ahead and reset both of my lots because I have no intentions of returning to this server. It was fun while it lasted, but there are many other servers out there that I can play on that don’t make me wait 2-3 weeks between updates. If it takes you that long to update your client each time Mojang releases and update, then perhaps you should look into eliminated some plugins, or find new ones that work just as well. That is just a suggestion for you to consider.

    Peace to everyone out there. Thanks to butifuldzastr for introducing me to this server to begin with. It’s been fun. I’m out.

    • Well you can take this as my official goodbye from me to you. I have grown quite tired of the way players talk down to me when it comes to upgrades. I can understand that you are craving to use the features of 1.5.2, but guess what, there aren’t any. You want me to work faster, but you cannot be bothered to push one additional button to use this server in one of the version switchers around, and this is one thing I cannot respect how people treat me for that. Maybe it’s just me but some of the emails I get telling me to upgrade when it’s only one button for the user and no impact otherwise just rubs the wrong way with me. And if that offends you, I do not even see a reason to apologize to you.

      And I will not reset your lots since the system will do that after they expire anyhow. Because one thing was always true on the server: That I treat all and everyone the same. I only ban if you break the rules and I only berate you if you do the same to me. If you feel addressed by the above text, it must be terrible for you to read any sign that says “Do not smoke!” – even if you are a non-smoker.

  6. i’m sure your friends will miss you, but the fact that you are making a big deal over such a small issue is quite funny in my aspect. Every server has it’s point where the administration is doing the best they can. For anyone that play MC you should always have backups of previous versions so that for any reason you always can revert, personally i have been playing since just after the beta came out… so now i have alot of backups that are not needed but i have them just in case. Personally this server is great, very informative and always on their toe’s, i personally always check the site before i log on incase something is wrong and to be clear with where i am going with this.. i am basically saying that uncovery doesnt need players like haduke because they are the ones that dont realize that the server is alot of work to maintain. Think of it this way,… if you ran a server and you had these problems you would be in the same position that you have accused the server and the administration of having the problems of updating. if you cant honestly hit the “Not Now” button when the updates try to install, then i don’t know what to tell you because not only have you embarassed yourself, you most likely embarassed your friend who brought you here because now he will be associated with you and how you “Hate” Uncovery.

    By the way unc….. the rest of us love you!:)

  7. HADuke no one forced you to join this server, so if you are not happy on how it is run then move on.
    Before you strut your tail feathers around here you need to know what you are talking about. This server has been going strong for over two and half years. Unc and a few others have written a lot of there own plugin codes which are not fixed with the snap of your fingers. Take a hard look out there and you will see that a lot of plugins have not been upgraded yet also. And finally if this is such a bad/poor/suckie server why do you keep wasting your time to come back and reply to all the comments. AND REMEMBER YOU CAME TO OUR HOUSE WE DIDN’T COME TO YOURS.

  8. While I am happy to have constructive discussions, insults don’t fly here. So I removed all comments that contain profanities and banned the respective user.
