Apologies for the extended server down time, our host seems to be having issues but everything should hopefully be back within the next day or so.
Now a lot of you are probably wondering when the server will be updating to 1.8 and what is going to be happening when it does. Having discussed it with the rest of the Minebox staff and a couple of you on the server, it has now been agreed that Plots, Survival, Skyblock and Factions will be getting a full reset and for those that want to know why, here ya go:
- Why Plots? - Because the plugin we currently use will not work with 1.8, luckily a similar and better plugin is available so we will be switching to that.
- Why Survival? - The custom world we generated for SV wasn't hugely liked and of course will lack the 1.8 features without walking thousands of blocks/chunks, so with the reset you will get a fresh 1.8 world in all it's glory.
- Why Skyblock? - It was recently brought to my attention that the Skyblock world had become corrupt, generating chunks near/under islands. So to prevent exploiting this, SB will be completely reset.
- Why Factions? - Pretty much the same reason as SV.
The Staff, various players from the server and myself have also discussed and have now agreed to remove most of the mini-games on the server as they are not played and are just using up server RAM, we will keep 1 or 2, but they will change if/when better mini-games come along.
Again apologies for the server downtime, I'll workout something to give as compensation.
See you on the server,
