I just wanted to write a quick note to thank all the people that have generously donated to the SafeHaven Gaming Server. It takes a lot of resources to maintain an active website and a kickass server and every penny donated or every hour volunteered help to make and keep SafeHaven part of the elite of multiplayer servers.
So keep the donations rolling in, keep making those awesome youtube vids of your town, and keep being active in all the great activities and sometimes disturbing conversations that make SafeHaven so great.
Everyone please congratulate Outlawgirl. She has been promoted to our Social Administrator. She will be helping out in all the day to day things on the server (Like she has for years) so..... basically she gets a shiny new title. Enjoy it!
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.
