That's right folks. If you guess based on the vague posts from facebook or Twitter, we are going live this Friday, the 1st of June!
If you have friends that have yet to become a member on the server, make sure they do so before then! All members prior to Friday will be moved to a Beta Member group. All players after this will be regular members. There will be some features that only Beta Member will be able to have, such as Virtual Chests. More information will come soon!
1.2.4 update is around the corner. Per Dinnerbone, "...it just means you can't join 1.2.3 servers with a 1.2.4 client or vice verca!" When 1.2.4 comes out, I wouldn't update right away! We have to wait for the server build for Craftbukkit!
You will also have to update your mods again! Yay! >.>
Update about the map conversion. I have all the protected regions copied from Era 1.1. Before I paste them into Era 1.2, I am going through and cleaning up some NPC villages. Don't worry, if you wanted one, the ones from 1.1 will be there to buy. Once that is done, I'll be pasting all 129 protected regions. This means, if your place wasn't ever protected, there could be chance that it won't be on the new map Era 1.2. I will try my best to look at the map and see player made structures. I can't guarantee it will be there in 1.2. If you fine your structure not copied over, please be at the location where it was and open a /modreq. I will claim these tickets myself and will go to Era 1.1 to look...
I have came across a program that would allow me to edit the biomes in a world. I have already tested it out on a copy of Eremos by making the biome to swampland to make the water the green look that I always wanted. Well, it worked!
So, what does this mean? We will have jungles in our current world! In order to do so, I have to generate the world with 1.2 and then I will copy structures over as it is currently to the new 1.2 map. In order to do this, our worlds will have to be offline. Sometime this Friday, the 9th, the main server will be brought down. We will be moving to a temporary map in the meantime while running 1.2.
On this temp map and all temp maps in the future (plugin permitting), we will be running the server in a Factions PvP world called Diastatos. The only thing you have to do is update your Minecraft to 1.2 and connect to the same address as before. To answer...
