So since the time of the year is around the corner again, I would like to make some statements for the uninitiated during the festive season of looming server upgrades!
- When will we upgrade? As soon as we can. First 1.8 has to be released. Then, all the vital systems that other people have to upgrade (spigot, plugins) have to be enabled so we can run the server with the vital functions at least. Whatever does not work then that is not 100% needed, will be disabled and enabled once it works. Then, I have to make sure that all the stuff we customized for the server works fine. Since there is this massive upgrade from usernames to UUIDs, it might take a bit longer.
- How long will that take until it’s done? No idea. It depends on other people most of all (see bove), and on the time that I have. So don’t ask me. It’ll be done when it’s done.
- Will you reset any worlds? Only the Darklands. Everything else will stay as it is.
- Will there be a temp server to check out the 1. features? No. There will be no temporary server for 1.8.
