So apparantly 1.17 is out? Wish we were told about it. We’ve been sitting back in our jacuzzis, lapping up the sunshine, watching the world go by. (I wish….)
So what does that mean for AddstarMC?
Well we’ve been busy… As every major Minecraft release happens, comes an admin nightmare. Our first hurdle has been completed with updating to Java16 which has caused some issues with plugins. (not maintained by us) But with so many plugins utilised on the server, and many of them AddstarMC specific and maintained by us, it’s getting increasingly difficult. Without going into specifics just yet, we’re making some big changes where we are ditching some of our own plugins and opting for externally managed plugins. At this stage they are reasonably neglible to game play. In fact, the return of something that has been broken for some time is coming…
So when is 1.17 coming?
Soon. 17cm. That means no ETA yet. But we are busy chipping away at it.
With good ol Mojang and their half attempt at releasing an update, Caves and Cliffs world generation isn’t being released until 1.18. With that in mind:
- Survival: Will not be resetting.
- Hardcore: Well it’s customary that hardcore gets a reset on major releases. So that will happen.
- Skyblock: Not resetting. If you want a Skyblock reset, you can already do that yourself.
- All other servers: Will just get the standard update to 1.17, with the return of an old server… (edit: Mr DontBuildSuspense announced Blockhunt)
So rest assured, we are not in our jacuzzis lapping up the sunshine. We are busy getting things sorted and at the same time waiting for other plugins to be updated.
So any further news/updates will be advised as we get closer.
