Beta Test Snapshot Support
__________________________

Posted Image


Ever wanted to test Snapshots, but either couldn't figure out installation, or just decided it was too much work?  You're in luck, because we are adding Snapshot support to the Curse Client!  Simply click "Get It" beside the Snapshot you'd like to test, and the Client will download that specific version to a separate folder from your release install, allowing for you to test without fear of save corruption! You can switch between any released Snapshot at any time, and can also copy your Worlds over from your release version of Minecraft for even more specialized testing!

In addition, the "My Textures" and "Get More Textures" tabs are available on this install, making texture pack testing a breeze.

The Snapshot feature is currently in beta testing, and can be tested on the test version of the Curse Client, which can be found here. Please note that once testing is done, you will want to go back to using the normal Client.  So if you want to help test out Snapshot support, be sure to grab the test Client, and try it out today!

Content Creator Rewards Program

Content creators have been uploading their work to bukkit.org for some time now.  What if there were a way to get rewards for your uploads to Bukkit?  For example, Amazon gift cards, or just straight cash?  Turns out you can!  Check out the video above for a rundown of the program, plus a walk-through for content creators to redeem their rewards at any time.

WOW the curse client is really getting a lot of features lately. That last bit would be GREAT to encourage plugin developers to keep the plugins we love so much up-to-date, and it would also help them get some goodies for all their hard work. Keep up the good work Curse!

Very nice though I wonder,
do we get points from downloads in general, or only downloads thru Curse client?

Also, how many points do you get? If you need 47 million downloads to get 50 points, and 1000 points to get $5...

Downloads do not only count through the Curse Client -- We count both downloads in the Client and on the site.

The amount of points you get are based off the points pool we have for the month, and how popular your modification is.  One point is currently equal to about five cents.  You can check out the FAQ [url="http://www.curse.com/author-reward-points-faq"]here[/url], and we should have it in an easier to read format later on today, as well. :)

I take it content creator rewards actually means "bukkit plugin developer reward" system? I don't know much about bukkit as the plugin system has never really interested me that much however from what I have noticed there is no way to host adventure maps or modifications such the mods made using forge and modloader.

If I had intended to say "plugin developer", I would have.  Many other types of content can be uploaded to Bukkit, not just plugins.  As for maps, well...all I can say is, keep an ear to the ground.  ;)

Has anyone heard anything about Curse Client for Mac supporting Minecraft?  I sure would love to use some of these features.

Thanks for enlightening me. I was under the impression that bukkit.org only allowed its users to submit plugins. Sorry if my post seemed disrespectful I support the program however I was confused as to how the program would work for the other types of contact creators.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Are you downloading the Test Client [url="http://testclientupdate.curse.com"]from here[/url], without the regular live version of the Client running?

If you're running the test Client and are unable to select the snapshots, could you please click Help -> Open Client Log file, and copy/paste the contents into an email, as well as a description of the issue, to [email protected]?  Our developers can use that to see what's up!
