    Bukkit released its update I've got a lot going on IRL this weekend, but I will try to get the server updated and running at least with the basic plugins, though it might just be a vanilla server.

    I will be generating a new world when I do this. However, don't get too attached to it, as the 1.9 update is coming very soon, and will likely require a new world to be generated again, so anything done in this world will likely be deleted. But at least you can get in there and start playing around.:D

    Yeah, I'm kind of waiting on news to see if a new map is needed for 1.10 too. But 1.10 I think is supposed to just add more passive mobs for the villages.

    Then there's going to be nightly builds until MineCon. Good luck keeping the server up-to-date, lol.

    I'll only worry about the official releases, and even then I'll only update when Bukkit updates.

    Can you put the current version number in the OP? I keep getting confused whether I should update or not.

    Has anyone tried PvP? If so, is it fun?

    I was updating the server to 1.8.1, a basic bukkit vanilla server for now with no extra plug-ins.

    I used a special seed to generate the map too. I call it survival island, lets see what we can do on just the island. I'm going to reload the map with the 1.9 update so this is just to play around with until that is released.

    Lockette is up and running on the server, so protect your chests if you want. Though with the current map, teamwork and sharing resources is encouraged.

    • Assuming that you refer to shafts in general (including horizontal, diagonal, vertical) and not just holes that go straight down, is my question whether that implies "entirely" or with allowance for some tiny spaces in it (with the entrance shut of course). I am asking this because mining is the only way of getting enough stone without having to dig away an entire field.
    • Do I need to install any mods or add-ons on my pc (because of the extra stuff on the sever)?

    I am wishing to join, you see. ygpm

    Generally it means entirely. You can use water if you want, just make sure it is filled so that it isn't a huge gaping hole and people don't fall in it and die.

    No, you don't need anything extra installed, everything is handled server side.

    That rule was for mining sand. People would mine the sand away and leave a big hole. They're ugly and, if you're not careful, dangerous.

    It's also for those ladder-less shafts straight down where someone tried to get to the bottom quick. If someone falls in those, it is pretty much a guarenteed death. If you intend to keep it, put ladders in it. If you don't, fill it in (dirt works great so if you want to open it up again, it doesn't take long with a shovel).

    I understood that when reading NT's reply, because the info you give now was implicated by it. :)

    Too many other great games taking up my time. I'll probably get on more once Minecraft is released retail after MineCon.

    Minecraft 1.0/Minecon in less than 3 days (Novemeber 18th).

    We're not on much because this world is temporary. No sense in putting a lot of effort into something if it is going to be gone in a month.

    Yep, the world will be refreshed once the server is updated to Retail 1.0.

    Once bukkit has a build up that works with it, and the majority of the plug-ins work. I'll get the server updated and the new map generated.
    magibeg and Virus-j say thanks.
