It's been a while since I've made a news post adressing the status of the server. Since I'm back in action, now seems like a good time!
Server updated to 1.7.10
The server has been updated today to Minecraft 1.7.10. This should eliminate the annoying block lag that some of you have been suffering from in the past few weeks, along with player skins being lost ("I'm Steve!") when you died or moved through portals. Some other bug fixes are included as well. Please let me know if any other issues show up.
1.8 is being released soon
Mojang currently plans to release version 1.8 on September 2. As usual, the server will take some time to be ready for an upgrade, so please stay with us on 1.7.10 in the meantime!
To do that, in the game's launcher, click the "Edit Profile" button then make sure that the "Use version" field is set to "release 1.7.10" (or any version between 1.7.6 and 1.7.10). Hit the save button, and you'll be good!
Some of you have heard of troubles related to the Bukkit project, which is the base of the server software that we currently use. The current situation will leave us with a working 1.8 version, so the upcoming update will happen as usual. The path beyond that is currently unclear, but that's for me to worry about. Just keep on playing and having fun, and I'll ensure that things keep on working in the future!
Second server status
Still in the planning stages is a second server for the Creeper's Lab, in Survival mode (sorry, Creative fans!), using mods. While this has been taking more time than expected, several steps related to this have been taking in the past months, including the new website layout and some plugin updates. I don't want to rush the process, as I want to take the time to do it right. I've got several good ideas that I'm looking to implement. More details will be posted once things are set in stone!
More coming later
Always. :-) Thanks for playing with us!
