Sneak Peak: New 1.13.1 Server Map

Sneak Peak: New 1.13.1 Server Map

Here is a sneak peak of the map for the new 1.13.1 server! The dynmap just finished rendering a few minutes ago. The black areas you see are places that nobody has been to yet. Every month, when the world expands, the new areas will start out black and slowly fill in as players explore them.

1.13.1 Treasure Hunt – Our Biggest Event Ever!

1.13.1 Treasure Hunt – Our Biggest Event Ever!

Hello everyone! As you may have heard, there’s been a 1.13(.1) event in the works for quite some time now. With the server release hopefully only a few days away, it is finally time to announce the event: a server-wide underwater treasure hunt that spans the entire 18K by 18K world! Hidden throughout the entire world are roughly 5,000 little chests, like the one shown above, each one with some loot inside and an Event Tag. You can find these…

Pregen Cancelled? Using Async Gen Instead?

Pregen Cancelled? Using Async Gen Instead?

Hey guys, I’ve been holding off from making announcements because I do not want to provide any inaccurate information or etas, but I would like to update you on what has been going on: Aikar, one of the developers of Paper, is working on a few feature: async chunk generation. This will allow the server to generate the world on multiple CPU threads rather than just one, and will hopefully fix lag normally caused by world generation. This feature came…

Warp Plugin Commissioned

Warp Plugin Commissioned

Good morning everyone! I’m very excited to announce that we’ve commissioned a new developer to write our warp plugin for 1.13! This is a new feature for our 1.13 server that we’ve had planned since February and, unfortunately, we still don’t have a functional version of the plugin – but that should be changing very soon! (A few of you may have seen in previous announcements that we’ve been having some issues with the developer we originally commissioned to write…

We are Re-generating the World to fix the Trees

We are Re-generating the World to fix the Trees

After several hours of testing and research I am fairly confident the tree issue is a vanilla bug, but PaperSpigot (optimized code for running a server) changed something that made the bug much worse. I am now pre-generating the world again without using PaperSpigot and I expect this to fix almost all of the trees. This process will postpone the release of the 1.13 server, but I believe it will be worth the wait to have a stable server with…

Minor Bug During Pre-Generation Found

Minor Bug During Pre-Generation Found

We’ve just discovered a bug that occurred during the world pre-generation. All of the trees that were on a chunk border had some of their leaves cut off. At this point in time we are planning to continue to use this world and just live with the broken trees. However, if the bug that caused this is patched before we are ready to release the server, we will be redoing the pre-generation process to fix all the trees. If we…

New World Pre-Generation Complete

New World Pre-Generation Complete

The new world has finished pre-generating and we are now beginning the process of rendering the entire dynmap. During this time we are also setting up the 1.13 server-wide event (that will be officially announced soon). Once these two processes are complete we plan to release the new server, as long as no major set-backs pop up. There are still a few bugs on 1.13, and not all of our plugins have updated, but as we previously announced – we…

Transfer Plots: Need Your Help

Transfer Plots: Need Your Help

There is currently a glitch when converting 1.12 worlds to 1.13 that causes double chests to lose their contents if they are split by a chunk border (one half in one chunk, one half in another). Please check your plot and move your double chests if they are split in half by the chunk borders. To see chunk borders use F3+G. Staff will be checking plots, but to ensure your stuff is safe please check your own plot. Please do…
