1.19 Update Plan

UPDATE - WE ARE LIVE ON 1.19!!!

Ok, before I start, I've been playing on a patreon server a bit, so I've been on the server less...but I'm almost done with some projects I want to do on there then I plan on being on this server more. Hooray! It's the patreon for Joe Hills from Hermitcraft, and I joined when they reset for Season 9, and have completed the farms I wanted to and 2 of my mega builds.

On 6.7.2022, 1.19 came out. YAY!!!  Are we updating yet?  NO!!!  Why?  Because our plugin engine won't be ready for some time.  Let's go through a checklist of things that need to update, I'll keep this up to date:


Server Engine:

  • SpigotMC - Ready enough
  • PaperMC - Mostly ready; I have tested in the dev server, just a couple of things left.
    • Paper has a few major changes that need evaluation. First, the config files will change, which may be fine, but will require me to test first. Second, there is a new faster redstone engine called "Alternate Current." It may fix server performance some, but it also may break things, it's worth me testing in my test environment. Lastly, things having to do with color codes (like the way we highlight player names) uses a new color format, so that may need to be reconfigured.

Plugins: We need plugins to be ready/tested in 1.19:


Here's some "optional" plugins that we use that aren't critical but need to be upgraded:


Here are the data packs we use:

  • Our main datapack bundle comes from vanillatweaks and can be found here: https://vanillatweaks.net/share#IuZVAv
    • More Mob Heads - Mobs have a chance to drop their head when killed, the head is a player head with a texture baked into the item.
    • Player Head Drops - Players will drop their heads when killed.  The dropped head will have a tag showing who killed them.  The block is a player head with a texture baked into the item, so texture will persist even if the player changes skins.
    • Wandering Trades - The wandering trader will now sell mini blocks which cost emeralds AND a full size version of the mini block.  The blocks are player heads with textures baked into the item.
    • Armor Statues - Provides a unique book which allows the posing and modification of armor stands and item frames
    • Track Statistics - Tracks some interesting statistics
    • Track Raw Statistics - Adds 100+ things to a scoreboard which can rotate and show online players who has done what
    • Coordinates HUD - Shows the players XYZ coords and time of day above the hotbar
    • Workstation Highlights - Allows you to find the workstation of any villager
    • Villager Death Messages - Notifies the server chat when a villager is killed
    • AFK Display - Grays out a player's name if they don't move for 5 minutes
  • Stillagers - A custom DataPack made by surfrock66, this allows you to apply a nametag to Villagers titled "Stillager" which disables their AI which reduces lag in 1x1 spaces in trading halls.  The still villagers will restock at 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM in game.  This can be reversed by applying the nametag "Moveager." https://www.teh3l3m3nts.com/new-datapack-stillagers/
 

Lastly, there are some client mods we use which are very helpful but aren't deal-breakers

1.18 Update Plan!

On 11.30.2021, 1.18 will come out. YAY!!!  Are we updating yet?  NO!!!  Why?  Because our plugin engine won't be ready for some time.  This update doesn't actually change that many mechanics, so speculation is that the update path will go faster...for example, there are literally no new blocks/items, so the only plugins which will have issues have to do with biome/terrain generation...which we don't use. Let's go through a checklist of things that need to update, I'll keep this up to date:


  • Java - Minecraft will now require Java 17, whereas the last release required Java 16. This is important because there are some hardware errors around single-threading java 17 processes; it's possible we will have to modify our server wrapping code and server runtime flags.

Server Engine:


Plugins: We need plugins to be ready/tested in 1.18; No new blocks or items exist in this version, but the java change means we need to test plugins:

Upgrading to 1.17…

1.17 is out!  Yay!  Are we updating yet?  NO!!!  Why?  Because our plugin engine isn’t ready yet.  Let’s go through a checklist of things that need to update, I’ll keep this up to date:

  1. SpigotMC – First builds are out: – https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/spigot-bungeecord-1-17.510208/
  2. PaperMC – Test builds are out – https://papermc.io/downloads

 

Also, we need plugins to be ready/tested in 1.17; mojang changed a LOT of API’s and requires a move to Java 1.16 so the need for testing even unchanging plugins is critical:

  1. EssentialsX – NOT READY – https://github.com/EssentialsX/Essentials/releases Project
  2. LuckPerms – READY – https://luckperms.net/download
  3. Vault – READY, Officially unchanged in 1.17 but reports say it’s working: https://github.com/MilkBowl/Vault A Spigot dev says he’s tested it and it’s working
  4. GriefPrevention – NOT READY, Likely works and just needs testing – Officially untested in 1.17: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/griefprevention.1884/ Some users are reporting it’s now working in 1.17
  5. Dynmap – NOT READY, beta1 has initial 1.17 support but beta2 will be the first we will runhttps://www.spigotmc.org/resources/dynmap.274/
  6. Multiverse-Core – LIKELY READY, Likely works and just needs testing – https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/multiverse-core.390/ Devs say it likely will work at the time of release of 1.17: MV supports Java 16 already, and will most likely support 1.17 at release. If there are any issues reported at the time of release, we will try our best to get them fixed quickly.

 

Here’s some “optional” plugins that we use that aren’t critical but need to be upgraded:

  1. ArmorStandTools – NOT READY, Likely works and just needs testing – https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/armor-stand-tools.2237/
  2. BBOutlineReloaded – NOT READY, likely needs support for new structures – https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/bounding-box-outline-reloaded
  3. VillagerOptimiser – NOT READY, Likely works and just needs testing – https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/villager-optimiser-1-14-2-1-16-5.68517/
  4. FakePlayers – NOT READY, Likely works and just needs testing – https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/fake-players-server-side-bots.91163/
  5. Dynmap Griefpreventoin – NOT READY, Likely works and just needs testing – https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/grief-prevention-dynmap-support.2881/
  6. MatterBukkit – READY – https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/matterbukkit/files/3360204

The Legacy Build Project.

The Legacy Builds Project!

Long time no post, so happy 2016 i guess. I’ve been back and playing for about a month now and i will briefly echo what CNC said previously and simply say… Let’s make Teh3l3m3nts great again, as one of the longest running servers i feel there is far too much history within the maps of this server for it to simply fade into obscurity now.

So then i had an idea. The Legacy Build Project, and so to start off the Legacy build project (Where i will be rebuilding an item from each map from Teh3l3m3nts past i found the perfect one from where it all began, the Legacy 2.0 map. Guess the build and i look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Server status Update

Hi!
I’m not sure how many of the older members still end up here on the website, but first I’d like to thank you for visiting =P
The server has been a bit lonely as of late, for the 2nd year =(
I’ve been real busy with life, and it looks like the other owners who took over things back in January-ish, left as well. When they left, they did not configure some stuff correctly, and unfortunately the map that was existing for the past 9-10 months or something along those lines was gotten corrupt for some reason and no backups. The spawn chunk file is corrupt I think, and the map will not load if you get in range of the main spawn area. It was like this for about a month, sorry =( I’ll try and load the chunks that load into a new world at some point for people to visit/take their stuff.

I normally check up on to make things are working every so often, but I’ve been so overloaded with work 80+ hours a week.
However, I have setup a new map, created a few buildings. But alas, I will be too busy to get other things configured correctly until around x-mas.
I did update the server to 1.8.8 as well as fix some other plugin issues.

My plan is to get the server back to a state that I’m happy with, like the golden days 12′-13′
Will take a bit of time without any help. Keep in touch (randy [at] afxr.net )
