Minecraft 1.4 Updates (April Fools)

Hey everyone!

I've started some preliminary work on the migration, and I have some updates:

1) Minecraft 1.4 Vanilla appears to work 100%.

Thankfully, I have tested the vanilla 1.4 on Eagleworld.net with no bugs.  So far, so good!

2) Craftbukkit appears to let the server start, but it is very buggy.

It looks as though craftbukkit has been updated, so Minecraft does in fact load on 1.4.  However, we are probably going to have to wait for the next recommended build for it to be stable enough for use.  There are a few bugs, which might affect plugins from working properly.

3) Essentials plugin is riddled with bugs.

Unfortunately, Essentials currently is a mess.  It runs, but with some bugs:

  • Server will occasionally crash unexpectedly
  • Wolves will not work.
  • Your iConomy data might get deleted unexpectedly and you will lose your Talons.
  • You will occasionally get spawned into the Nether.
  • Chat sometimes doesn't work
  • Attempting to purchase from a store will occasionally delete your player inventory.
  • Ore blocks when placed (such as iron or diamond ore) will occasionally disappear.

These are bugs that are not going to get fixed for at least 6-8 weeks.  Essentials requires a complete rewrite for this to work.  I will however roll out the server before then so that we can play on 1.4.  I know everyone is excited for that.

That's all I've got so far.  I hope have more updates soon.  With luck, the server might be running version 1.4 in another 3 weeks or so.

Other Updates

I have some other news:  I'm suspending the Monthly Salary program.  I've decided that monthly salaries just do not make sense on the server, as it does not work fairly towards those that work hard on the server.  Instead, it promotes sloth and unfairly assists the poor on the server.  I'm sure everyone will agree with me on this assessment.

Server Upgrade Progress

As per the post yesterday, I've updated the server upgrade schedule and showed what has been done so far and what is left to do.  Feel free to check it out if you like.
