So, is it three different servers, or is it one server with multiworlds, so you can join some kind of a channel so you can talk to others across the worlds?
It is 3 separate servers with a lobby server. Each will be able to be joined independently (from the client) or you will be able to join our general IP and it will put you through to whichever server you were last logged into. You will also be able to switch between servers via command once logged into any.
Each server will have it's own chat channel which will be able to be toggled on/off per player. And messages will show if people joined, left, or switched from one server to another.
Due to the timing of the update, and the number of plugins affected by it, the launch will unfortunately not be happening on Halloween. However, it does mean that survival will make full use of the new terrain generation when we do launch.
I'm not going to give an eta for launch, because it is partially dependent on plugins updating, but I will keep everyone posted.
I just have a question about Survival; will there be a shop or money system? Im only asking because I think it affects how fun it can be over a long period of time and there is no survival aspect if you can just use farms to gain money to buy ores and other useful items. It just ruins the whole idea of mining and exploring. Only my opinion but I do not mind whether not it is added, I just wanted to find out
I was actually going to ask about the same thing! It would be a good thing to have shops in the survival server, as long as it is not too easy to get money for good items.
Then I can add shops to my home so people can buy different supplies whenever they would like to.
something tells me this is going to be a masterpiece server when it's done... might need more than 30 slots when its completed... once the word gets out, well lets just say, it will move up the charts as most loved.
Is it still looking like its on track to up on halloween??
Since there is a new version of Minecraft out, as you might know already Atom will have to wait for Bukkit and/or other plug-ins to update aswell. The server will most likely come up after Halloween because of that.
Oh my glob I can't wait, I have so many things planned in creative of course, Might as well just open it up in 1.6... I have been thinking of a bunch of stuff I wanted to build
EDIT: No for freaking reals, 1.7 has seemed to really changed the world OUTSIDE of MC's design, Lots of people seems ot be having so much trouble and issues with updating there plugins for servers, I mean really, Bukkit isn't anywhere near being updated and it's true the Polo said, The map has to be used in 1.6.4 or structers can be lost if you go straigh to 1,7(http://bit.ly/H3DfFU)
There's no IP since the server is still under construction, lol. Also, FISHY! I think all our stuff is going to be on the creative server, but I agree with Jetty to open the server on 1.6 because the map needs to be loaded on 1.6.4 to avoid errors on 1.7 (and I'm DYING to work on poloridge again xD). But atom if you feel we should wait that's ok too
