1.2 is OUT

First...lemme answer where I have been for the last week or so.....My House Is On The Market! So I've been a little preoccupied :/ That and some epic work projects because it's entering the busy cycle. But I promise I'm not dead!

As always, here's the old game files for before we update, which will be soon: 1.1 version (Windows and Linux). Here's how to find the files that need to be backed up:

  • In Linux: ~/.minecraft
  • In Windows XP: C:/Documents and Settings/[USERNAME]/Application Data/.minecraft
  • In Windows 7: C:/Users/[USERNAME]/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft
  • In OSX: Mac Version of 1.1 /Users/[USERNAME]/Library/Application Support/minecraft

As always, here's the Official Feature List and the often-more-useful Wiki feature and bug list. Also, for everyone asking when Bukkit will be updated, here's their status: Bukkit Dev Status.

1.1 Is Out!

See? When I said it might drop today...I was just 30 minutes too early :D

According to some hot rumors, Minecraft 1.1 is going to drop today! How opportune with our server move! Now, we won't be updating until bukkit is stable...however with this new host we're not limited to recommended builds only, we can install development builds which still work, so we can be up to date MUCH faster.

We know that many of you want to play around in 1.1 right off, but to play before we update,...do that you need to backup you client's game files, and keep a 1.0 version (Windows and Linux) AND a 1.1 version that you can go back and forth between. Here's how to find the files that need to be backed up:

  • In Linux: ~/.minecraft
  • In Windows XP: C:/Documents and Settings/[USERNAME]/Application Data/.minecraft
  • In Windows 7: C:/Users/[USERNAME]/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft
  • In OSX: Mac Version of 1.0 /Users/[USERNAME]/Library/Application Support/minecraft

Some Things for the Week

Sup homies! Now that we're all back from vacations and whatnot, time for getting down to some updates.

Yea, the temporary server is working ok for most people (sorry cncr) but it's not nearly a long term solution. For example...it's running on the system I keep backup PDF's of all my financial documents and such...so I can't give other owners access to it to do things, like, say, fix it when it breaks. Also, my residential internet sucks. We're looking into hosts...we found one I kinda like, I just asked them some ?s and hopefully they'll get back to me soon.

We figgered out the shiz with the .com domain name...should have it back within 5-6 days. The current message about that is at the bottom of the link...it's very boring and the links are removed, but it's proof it's in progress :)

Finally, this week we're gonna enable the 1.0 map for the 1.0 survival challenge. It's a new world where like we talked about, no bringing in resources from other worlds and we play to get to the ender dragon as a team. I want to make it after we move hosts to a permanent deal, but realistically, we just need to do it. My plan is to enable that map Friday evening, so anyone that wants in gets in this weekend to play. I actually think we keep resetting this world each time we beat the dragon, then leave update map as 1.0 map since some people (::cough cough:: kermit) built permanently in update world.

F*** Bukkit!

Goddamn it, why won’t Bukkit update!?

F*** Bukkit!

Still No Bukkit Yet?

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We just found a major bug in last-minute testing. Sorry guys, it'll definitely be tonight, but just a little while longer. WE HAVE A RECOMMENDED BUILD! Bukkit's server is being crushed, I'm trying to update right now, I'll send an e-mail when it's up. This is what the stupid screen looks like:

UPDATE: We're already on bukkit build 1160 :( Looks stable, but still no rec. Bugs to fix :/

The hell man! Still no bukkit for 1.0. I know at home I've upgraded to 1.0, so I have been playing single player, but I'm still keeping an eye on server stuff. All the info from the last 1.0 post is in the "read more" link at the bottom of this post.

Even if we're all on different versions and such, doesn't mean we can't hang out! How's guys 1.0 adventures goin? Anyone care to share? Share in the comments!
