Servers upgraded to 1.8ish

Posted by on Oct 26, 2014 in Minecraft

I know you’ve all really wanted us to upgrade to 1.8 and I have looked in to the possibility but honestly it’s still a ways off. But what I have done is given us the second best thing, 1.7.10 with protocol compatibility with 1.8 which also adds the new 1.8 mobs, blocks, recipes and mechanics.

This means now you can login to our server using the official 1.8 Mojang client and experience 90% of the new 1.8 content. And yes that does mean you’ll encounter bunnies in the wild and be able to make slime blocks that really bounce and stick to things.

To perform this “upgrade” we have lost a few features. Disguises do not work, our picture frame feature doesn’t work and we’ve lost Holograms. But everything else appears to be intact. Our online shop and auction system works as do our cards and easter eggs.

I will be adding the new 1.8 blocks to both our online shop and our auction system as fast as possible so you can use them soon. Thank you for your patience.

By the way Optifine came out yesterday for 1.8 and I highly recommend you install that as it greatly improves the performance of the game. Here is a direct link to that from the official Optifine website for 1.8: OptiFine_1.8.0_HD_U_A3.jar
