The SHG staff are excited to announce that, despite the lack of a fully featured 1.8 server, we were able to implement some of the major blocks from 1.8 including the new stone blocks and prismarine shards/ blocks. you can buy them in the mall from spawn in the upper orange line shop! go check it out!
Hey gang It's time for an update on what's a happening.
First off 1.8 (WOOHOO). We have compatibility with 1.8 on
the main network so that 1.8 clients can connect in but there are NO 1.8
features yet. (More on this later)
We DO, however, have a 1.8 vanilla server spun up at
vanilla.safehavengaming.com . It is white listed and all builder and up should
have access to it. It is STOCK vanilla but all SH rules apply over there.
Let me be the first to welcome our new Microsoft overlords,
may their reign be swift and fair. I kid. I kid. But YES Mojang was bought by Microsoft.
What does this mean for minecraft? In the short term Nothing really. In the
long termwho knows. This acquisition
does not make me concerned as with MC being the huge massively profitable thing
it is Microsoft won't jump right on in and make that player base mad by
changing a bunch of things. This might even help Mojang by giving them more
resources and help (a good PR team should be the first step).
Next let's have a moment of silence because Bukkit is kind
A few weeks back there started some copyright/licensing talks
between Mojang and Bukkit. It is a huge dramatic story that I'll be glad to
talk to you about on a 1 on 1 basis but too long for this post. In the end one
of the project leads presented a valid DMCA notice which forced the removal of
ALL Bukkitand Spigot stuff and made it
Illegal to distribute it. We grabbed a copy just in time (the version which
gives us 1.8 compatibility). Where does this leave the 1.8 full update? At this
time there is no update in site. I have reached out to quite a few people as
there are projects being worked on that get around this snag. There are no
ETA's on them though. We are waiting like everyone else.
We will be doing a Town hall style meeting on TS3 sometime
soon to all get together and talk and give you guys a chance to ask questions
if anything is confusing (We will also sneak in a few rounds of war too). I'll
post up when that meeting will be.
Until then let me know if you have any questions guys.
Safehaven Gaming is excited to announce the release of the new 1.8 vanilla server! Since the update to 1.8 on Safehaven's other servers require extra software that must update first, it will take some time to update to 1.8 there. However, in the meantime, please enjoy a completely vanilla version of 1.8 minecraft at vanilla.safehavengaming.com! In order to access this server, you muct be a (whitelisted) builder or higher on SHG's main survival server. please remember to read all rules at spawn. This server is a temporary server, however, will most likely last for many months as the update of our regular servers is expected to take much longer than normal. See you there!
We have updated ALL servers to include compatibility for 1.8. What this
means is you can upgrade your client to 1.8 and play on our servers but
the server it's self is 1.7.10 still. No 1.8 items or feature exist yet.
We will be updating to full 1.8 as soon as bukkit and our MAJOR plugins update as well.
No server out there is on 1.8 yet, Some are using the same compatibility trick we are using but no server out there has 1.8 running unless they
are a FULL 100% vanilla server (most are not).
Speaking of.... I will be setting up a 100% vanilla server for us to
play on and have fun with later this evening. The address for it will be
posted on the Safehaven Survival server once it is launched.
