This is just a short announcement to keep you guys in the loop about whats happening behind the scenes for the servers. We’ll be hitting some big topics in this post about the questions and information most important to the players right now.
The 1.5 “Redstone Update” is due out this week. Let me first say that the server will update to 1.5 the DAY of the update, however; the some new features and items will not be available until we have fully tested them out. This is a win-win for staff and players as there will be zero downtime for the update and the staff can make sure the server is stable and secure before offering the all new goodies. We are preparing the server for the big switch over, and have the testing server fired up. Before we release the new items on the server two requirements have to be met:
1. Our security and anticheat plugins must be functional.
2. World protection and grief rollback must be online.
As soon as this happens will we quickly add the all new items and make the annoucement of 1.5’s full arrival.
