Now I know most of you have thought either we died or gave up on minecraft. The truth is, some of did give up, That is the sad truth about being apart of a game for so long, some of us over 5 years. You get tired, bored, over it. Which I understand, I truly do. However there is still light at the end of this tunnel and it's not over yet. We fully expect the community (whats left of it) to be small and I'm okay with that. I will continue to keep paying for the server, I have no plans to stop that for the current future. I will even continue to maintain and try my best to keep the server running. What I can no longer do and most of the people who know me have found out, is give my full attention to this project. It's been a long 2015, I moved, got a new job where I run a business. So I don't have much time to myself. Always being on call if something happens at my work.
Now that you're all caught up on whats happened to me this last year or so, I would like to outline 2016.
I plan on spending more time fixing issues and updating the server with new and exciting things. it's not going to be quick, but it will be done.
Second, I plan on making sure I answer anyone's concerns or question they may have about the server.
Minecraft 1.9 Release Looming Around the Corner
I started tracking my usual Minecraft news sites more closely for the past couple of weeks after having been abuzz about the 1.9 update and its official release date. Unlike prior years, Mojang will not have a pre-XMAS release, but rather is deferring release to sometime early 2016. I’m happy to see that they finally learned their lesson not to mess with Minecraft during the holidays, allowing system administrators and plugin developers to partake therein rather than being hunkered over a keyboard patching code.
We are both excited and scared about this update. We’re excited about combat features, the expanded End, and other new materials/foods/plants. Those same things scare us too, because their implementation resulted in many, many modifications to underlying Minecraft code and APIs. This has a tendency to break plugins forcing us to wait for developer updates or making temporary modifications myself.
In other words, the more changes, the higher the likelihood of delays until LagCraft updates to 1.9. Obviously, we have to wait for a stable Spigot release – or at least a beta that we trust – and/or for developers to update their plugins if needed.
