  • Adventure mode now prevents you from destroying blocks, unless your items have the CanDestroy data tag
  • Resource packs can now also define the shape of blocks and items, and not just their textures
  • Scoreboards have been given a lot of new features
  • Tweaked the F3 debug screen
  • Block ID numbers (such as 1 for stone), are being replaced by ID names (such as minecraft:stone)
  • Server list has been improved
  • A few minor changes to village and temple generation
  • Mob heads for players now show both skin layers

  • Lots and lots of other changes
  • LOTS AND LOTS of other changes
  • Removed Herobrine



Once a solid build of the Bukkit server is released I will upgrade the server and all of the plugins that decide to continue their development. What do each of you think about the server? yes that means you too Guest! I think the overall update looks good, but that being said I have not had a chance to play much. I have an empty server that I can run Minecraft Vanilla 1.8 in if anyone is interested in giving it a shot, it will be pretty much a server where everyone can spawn anything to play around with it, so if you want that just let me know. (I will also consider creative in the actual SM server if it brings back more people)

Sounds good tbh none of there are actually bad updates in my opinion.

And maybe if you made a form for players to get creative mode for a certain project or pay for x amount of time?

That's the current plan. We just need to figure out how to make it work correctly.

I will be making a 1.8 beta server sometime soon to test it out and see if it's stable enough to play on with plugins.

After messing around with the new VPS I have managed to get a version of Spigot running. The only issue is that it's buggy. Users with 1.7.x and 1.8.x are able to login, but much like Modded clients and modded server the 1.8 items and mobs do not work. I may be going back to vanilla soon.
