The Minecraft 1.8 update is right around the corner. Our servers should update quicker than normal now that Bukkit is under Mojang’s control. Here are some things that you should know for the updating of the Survival Server:
- The map is not going to be reset. The terrain generation changes in 1.8 only add to the current terrain gen, so we shouldn’t be getting those ugly chunk borders.
- The natural spawn point will be moved to newly generated terrain. This will encourage people to build new stuff, but allow others to stay put if they don’t want to move.
- I will be installing a second hub to the Nether Tunnel System. The current system has done a great job of getting people places they need to go, and I intend to keep that going with another hub to go with the new spawnpoint. Below is a map of the plans I have made.
Nothing too major this time around, so the update should go pretty smoothly. We hope to see you on the server soon!
