As previously hinted; the update for Noobstown to go straight to 1.12 is very nearly ready! This is a announcement to let you all know that the server will be going down from 8pm BST this coming Friday
(30th June) (what's that in my timezone?
) and will be hopefully be back up in the early hours of Saturday 1st July with the 1.12 update live! There'll be a update post here once we're back including some of the changes on top of the Minecraft updates. Due to the uncertainty of updates I can't give an estimate of what time it might be done, but I'll work as fast as I can do; keep checking the site to find out!
Plus once we're back up on Saturday; then throughout the rest of the weekend it'll be triple
mcMMO XP! Plus to help share out some of the new things I'll be running a few randomly timed events/giveaways for those of you online
This is a massive update of things, we've not be using the latest version of Minecraft for well over a year now, so this should be a great change for the better. To clear up a few questions I've heard here are a few commonly asked questions about the update:Q: What version is the server updating to?
A: The server will be updating straight from 1.8 all the way to 1.12.Q: When updated to 1.12 do I have to play on a 1.12 client or can I keep using 1.x?
A: You will have to play the server in a 1.12 once we update so be sure to update your client as soon as you can do.Q: Are you introducing the 1.9 combat changes?
A: Yes, the cooldowns, etc. will be coming to the server.Q: Are any of the new Minecraft features blocked like in previous updates?
A: Since I've had a long time to work towards the updates hopefully none of the new features should be blocked! There's loads of new features, they've obviously been adjusted into the protections in towns and the Wilderness but almost all of new the features should be possible. I'm open to hearing about anything which could be adjusted if it's not completely possible though.Q: Are you allowing the use of the elytra (wings)?
A: Sure! You'll be able to use the elytra in the same way you could do in vanilla. They won't work around spawn and a few other areas, but on your own land or in towns they should work just fine!Q: What's the plan for the End updates?
A: The border in the End will be dramatically increased to allow you to make use of the islands and End Cities. (Need a way to get the elytra
) You'll also be able to respawn the dragon, etc. as normally possible in 1.12 vanilla.Q: Will you be resetting the Mining World, Nether and End with the update?
A: Yes, along with the update I'll be resetting all of the temporary worlds to allow you to get the use of the latest 1.12 features
.Q: What about shulker boxes?
A: In the Wilderness Shulker boxes will be protected just like any other unit. You'll be able to do all of the normal cool Minecraft things there, including the placing and breaking using redstone! In towns they'll be protected slightly differently; by LWC, again just like all of the chests, etc. in Towns already.
If you've got any other questions not answered above just post them in a reply or ask me directly and I'll try to answer them
Not long to wait now
