Now 1.8 Compatible

MassiveCraft has updated and is now 1.8 compatible. You can log on using either Minecraft 1.7 or 1.8. Both client versions work.

Note that we are still running Minecraft 1.7.10. Enchanting is still the same, you can not make birch doors etc. The only thing that was added is the possibility of logging on with a 1.8 client.

As a side effect the /pet plugin had to be temporarily disabled due to bugs. We will add it back in as soon as possible.

  • Q: Should I update my client to 1.8?
    A: You can but we suggest you don’t. Good client mods like Optifine, Forge and MorePlayerModels are not updated yet.
  • Q: Why not actually update to 1.8?
    A: Bukkit 1.8 is not available yet.
  • Q: Was this update really necessary?
    A: Yes. Take a look at the daily statistics (http://www.massivecraft.com/stats-day). It seems a lot of people don’t know how or don’t want to downgrade their clients.
  • Q: So when will MassiveCraft actually update to Minecraft 1.8?
    A: The release date for Bukkit 1.8 is unknown. But as soon as it’s released we will update.

Teled Methen, our newest world project is nearing completion. We are happy to announce that the Teled Methen trailer will be released on Saturday the 30th of August. The trailer will feature over a minute of unique footage of the world, in preparation of the official world release.

We are proud of the quality of Teled Methen, being built with the latest technology in World Machine and World painter, accompanied with unique Bo2’s build by our world staff found nowhere else.

We hope you look as much forward to this world release as we do. An official release date is not available yet, but we should have a more solid date around the time when the trailer comes out.

Performance Fixing Spree

Lately I have been focusing my plugin development efforts on performance improvements and bug fixes. The goal is to improve server TPS and overall stability. So far I have done the following:

  • Reconfigured our web servers: Websites now load quicker.
  • Reworked the Factions Dynmap integration: improves TPS, popups on dynmap looks better.
  • MassiveQuest got a performance fix: improves TPS.
  • Fixed a memory leak: we no longer need to restart once a day.
  • Removed MassiveMobs temporarily: improves TPS

Except for the improved Dynmap popups none of these projects have added new features. The game-play experience should however be slightly less laggy which is something we highly value.

Regards Cayorion
