    Upcoming Updates

    As some of you may have heard, Minecraft will be releasing it's new launcher this week. Considering the thing about adding beds to the game, I suspect they'll also release a new server application as well. I'll do my best to have our server migrated to that as soon as I can.

    Also, I'm going to aim for to deploy other server updates this weekend. Most importantly will be the ability for players to /world nether to transport themselves to the dark side.

    Stay tuned for more specific updates.

    Per Jeb's Twitter:
    Update will most likely be here today. For those of you in the US, it should be before or around 6pm.
    This reddit thread has some information about expected patch notes. I haven't gone looking for anything official yet.

    1.3 is out now.
    The sun has fallen down
    And the billboards are all leering
    And the flags are all dead at the top of their poles.

    I saw that. Upgrading is at the top of my priority list of to do's when I get home. Don't be surprised if the server is up and down while I get that sorted out and I'll reply in this thread as soon as we're all squared away.

    Ok. Been playing in offline mode...lighting got a significant tweak. Torches don't seem to light up as much, but the lighting looks better to my eyes.

    Yup, supposedly the integrated Better Light (previously a client side mod) into the game.

    Here's an ongoing reddit thread about the new release. http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/co...pdate_is_here/

    I'm glad we have automated backups running smooth, the change of world save structures makes me nervous...

    Thanks, Os--I'm looking forward to seeing my constructions in the "new" light. It definitely does look better than before.

    Edit: also, it looks like my client updated a second time. Looks like they may not be quite "done" rolling out 1.3.

    Alright, we're back online and we're running semi naked.. Truely vanilla, with only the new white-list file and obscurity to protect us..

    I'm certain all the required plugins will be updated over the course of the next few days. So as long as their ready and I've tested'em - I'll aim to deploy them Saturday or Sunday morning.

    Edit: having tried the beds, but that should replace your /home which isn't there via plugin as it had been. Same goes for /TPC, /Warp, etc..

    I can't seem to kill them either. There are about 50 down there. They have effectively shut down my mining operation.

    Dump some lava on them. Or shift your mine 100meters to the left.

    Yeah, I'll probably just seal them in and mine somewhere else. One is cute. 50 - not so much.

    I went down to my mines in anticipation of finding cute little slimes and NONE. I couldn't find any slimes in my mines.

    Why does Bribo get all the love?
