1.8 Test World

Hello everyone!

It’s been a long time coming, but enough of our core plugins have been updated to 1.8 that I’ve decided to open up a test world for it.

If you’d like to join and play around with stuff, you can connect to the test server at play.minecraft.dk:25311 

Please try and test everything you can. I have no idea what all will be borked and what will work.

Also, please answer the two polls at the bottom of this post so I can gather a little bit of information. The first one is simply wether or not you want the server to update to 1.8. The changes that Mojang made to 1.8 affect a lot of things, which will break quite a bit of stuff.

The other question is how you’d like to see the 1.8 stuff added, if we do upgrade. There are really just two options:

1) Expand the world border to allow new chunks to be generated (like we did in SMPworld with 1.7)

2) Create a smaller, completely new world. This world would be similar to the shop world (bigger though) that allows for transferring blocks back and forth.

Anyway, let me know what you think. If you find bugs, or have any questions, please make a post in the forums on this thread.

  1. could you transishon in to it like
    step 1; make hopping world like lockers (one chunk of chest that are for moving)
    2;reset the main world to 1.8 from 1.7.9
    3 let people move there stuff back in to the main world 1.8
    why this would let the server up date and if you let 1.7.9 to stay it will be the lag world of meger farms, and I do not want that.

    1. You’ve been unmuted, but I’m really really tired of cleaning up after you. This is your last chance on there.

  2. I’m ok with the updating but I want the world to stay the same and not reset mostly because i don’t want to lose my villagers but if there’s some way we can just make the world we have now 1.8 and nothing will change jurasticly them I’m all for the update!!

  3. Ok sorry I was misunderstanding the expand world border but now I think I get so all the border now will be the same 1.7.9 loaded chunks but the new ones will be 1.8 loaded chunks but yet the whole server will run on 1.8 is that correct? Because if it is then I can’t wait for the update:D

      1. Does this just refer to structure/ore generation or also to game mechanics? E.g. will my villagers and enchanting table, located inside the current world border, continue to work as they do now after the update (while new ones placed in new chunks use 1.8 mechanics), or will they also become picky and require lapis?

        1. It’s just the chunk generation. Game mechanics will be the same everywhere. So for example, you won’t find any ocean temples in the already generated chunks, but enchanting will be different.
