You can now update your minecraft clients to 1.4.6 and connect to the server. I want to see some epic fireworks!
Have fun everyone and happy holidays to you all!
You can now connect to play.tottoncraft.com to enter our brand new map on 1.4. With this update no items will be carried across, so that everyone starts off with nothing. And the results from the poll tells us the majority of you would like us to stay on hard difficulty.
While we are waiting for bukkit to update the server will be running vanilla. This means no plugins or other fancy stuff. Once bukkit is available for 1.4 we will promptly switch to it.
This map, like stated on here and the subreddit, will have a border limit. Exact details will be announced soon. As long as you stay on the big island you will be fine.
What about the old map? The old map will be cleaned up and hosted on the internet somewhere. We will announce it on the subreddit and on here when it becomes available to download. Price will be $9.99. (lol)
The Hardcore server has also been turned off and will be available to download if people want it.
Sam and I are going to perform some routine maintenance on the server starting at 12:15pm Eastern Time today. Here’s the short list:
- Upgrading CraftBukkit and server packages
- Adding night mode back on the live map
- Smoothing out boundaries between different terrain generators using mcmerge
The server will be down for an hour at most, but we expect it to be back up earlier than that. I will update this post as soon as we are back online. Thanks for your time!
12:50pm Update – We Are Back Online!
Adding the night mode to the live map had the unfortunate side effect of destroying the day mode as well. For the time being, the live map may be a little screwy. We restarted a full render of the overworld, so in a day or two’s time (yes, it takes forever) it should be fully functional again.
Thanks for your patience! You can now play again without interruptions
Another bug-fix patch was released this morning, and the bukkit team already has a release for it! As of this morning, our server has been updated to version 1.2.5. Feel free to update your Minecraft client at will.
Some of the notable fixes include the removal of TNT “ghosts,” cats are now less eager to sit on things, villager door detection has been updated so they do not have runaway-breeding sessions, and there is now shift-click support in furnaces. Check it out the entire changelog if you want to know what else has been updated. Anything in particular you are excited about? Let us know in the comments! Until next time, happy mining!
That was a quick turn around. As of this morning the server has been updated to 1.2.4! Everyone can now update their Minecraft client to the latest version.
