Yeah, it has been there in the last several carto renderings, I don't know why.
what tekie said. my server stays at 1.4 until bukkit updates everything for the latest 1.5_02. this is going to be a real pain to do every time there is an update. very lame.
Yeah, it gets old fast. I hope this update is the last one for about a month. I'd like it, and I don't think I'm alone as most of the server admins seem to agree, if they went to a once a month update schedule.
what notch needs to do is hire some of the bukkit guys to be working on implementing the mods and such into the actual game. that would make life a lot easier.
Hahahaha. Notch working? LOLNO.
Or at the very least keep the bukkit guys in the loop, providing release canidate builds to the bukkit guys a day or so early so they can get a head start on developing a bukkit build that is compatible. So the moment the minecraft update is released, a bukkit build is released that supports it, then it is only a matter of a day or two before most of the plug-in writers have updated their plug-ins.
But yes, I agree that bukkit should just be integrated with minecraft, that would make things much simpler.
which code do you think is worse? minecraft or bukkit?
I'm not sure, I just know I don't want to see it if the two are combined.:shadedshu
Notch said that he wants to add a mod/plugin system eventually so bukkit wouldn't be necessary.
I think frequent updates will be the norm until the release deadline (11/11/11), unfortunately. He has finally decided to put more effort into the game.
Hey guys, just wanted to throw a little updated out there to let you all know the server isn't dead.
Bukkit still hasn't released a recommended build for 1.5 yet, so most of the plug-in developers haven't even begun patching their plug-ins to work with the newer bukkit builds(though there are some extremely buggy builds of bukkit that work with 1.5).
So in the mean time I've been working on a new interesting surprise which I hope to reveal this weekend, or maybe monday at the latest, depending on how long it takes me to work the kinks out. So for now, feel free to speculate on what it is.
There's a lot of excellent changes and bug fixes in 1.5 and 1.5_01:
I formatted so I ended up with 1.5_01. I'll have to wait until the server is updated. All kinds of excellent games are coming out in the next month though...
A total map reset.
You can use the Update Controller I posted on the other page to switch between the two versions, it has the necessary files bundled with it.
And yes, there are a lot of good games coming out in the near future, going to make it hard to concentrate on Minecraft.
Yeah, I think I'll just wait. I'll be playing Portal 2 and The Settlers 7 for the next week or so and after that, Darkspore should arrive. I ran out of ideas (finally) to implement in the server so I'm in no rush. XD
Just a thought: a friend of mine said that their server goes to a different world in between patches (waiting for Bukkit to update). Maybe a good idea?
I could load up the April Fools day map again I guess while we are waiting for bukkit, I'll do that if I get a chance, but I'm going to be away for Easter this weekend, so I won't have much time for any gaming unfortunately.
Hmmm... no one seems interested in my surprise.
Warps? It's gotta be a plugin of some kind because of the "kinks."
i use the ancient gates plugin and it is excellent.
Creepers that detonate like nukes?
I'll be trying again once everything is upgraded to 1.5xx as it looks the like redering of blocks has changed (only what you can see). Maybe it will help my sad connection a bit.
I think it still downloads all the blocks. That new OpenGL feature would only help if you are experiencing graphic lag (which everyone probably does on occassion).
He's made 28 Million dollars in net sales... So i'd hope he'd put some effort in.. I might purchase this down the road once its actually a stable 100% playable game.. but until then I'm not giving a lazy 1 man dev team another dollar..
The surprise is that there will not be any new cartograph maps of the server. Check the link in the first post for the reason why.
And that weird thing by the T is gone too.
That's extremely awesome.
