Ever since our initial alpha launch, a concern echoed by many-a-player has been the server version: 1.12.2. While familiar, nostalgic and widely supported by the mod community, the absence of later-released features left some things to be desired as expressed by many of you... ...until now
After much discussion, speculation, anticipation and behind-the-scenes work, we are proud to finally announce our transition to Minecraft version 1.16 for many of our game servers!
To ensure a smooth rollout, we will be deploying the update realm-by-realm:
Release: Thursday, July 9th at 10:00 AM PDT
Catered to the Minecraft veteran, this realm will offer an authentic vanilla experience, free from "pesky" luxuries such as currency and teleportation - while still maintaining land-claiming and trading systems to prevent griefing.
Spawn is set...
I know, I know, we're WAY behind on our initially planned December launch for the Network, but that time has not been going to waste. In the months of Public Alpha testing, we've been building custom tools for our infrastructure running behind the scenes in order to support all of our existing game modes, and any future ones we endeavour to add (bed wars and factions anyone?).
Most of this you won't actually see as it's just fancy code running in the background, but we decided this was necessary to ensure a quality experience for our players. However, that's not to say if you played on the server in the early days, that you won't notice any changes - so let's show you guys all that we have to offer as of our Public Beta launch today.
Network Minecraft Version: 1.12.2 to 1.15.2 (1.12.2 is recommended)
State of the Union
We're hard at work getting the LTT server up and running for all of you, but it's the holiday season and as such, there have definitely been some delays! My new target is to officially launch on February 17th, 2020, however, the entire team will be trying our hardest to get the network up and running before then. Fingers crossed.
Hub Sneak Peek
Here's a little sneak peek of the new hub (also the forum banner), that our resident builder extraordinaire Nitsan is working on. Normally hub servers are kind of lame, but in addition to easy navigation of the network, we wanted to offer a cool place for users to explore and socialize in, outside of the regular game modes. Let us know what you think so far!
