Default Beta 1.5 is out, don't update your clients!

Beta 1.5 is out now, and as we all know we should not update the clients until our admins have had time to update the server and all its mods.

Edit: here is a tutorial to how to use the new powered rails: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ6D-9xZ6vI

They look pretty weak to me... I foresee a gold shortage in the near future, especially since you only get 6 instead of 16 tracks out of the same amount of material
For some boosting the old boosters just have to do because these will not be powerful enough for the distances we have in our system. But the sensor rail and the braking effect of the inactive power rail is most certainly welcome.

I've been looking forward to playing 1.5. I'm thinking I'll update so I can at least play it in the single player while monitoring the forums for the servers to be updated.

Thanks for giving everyone the heads-up DaedalusAlpha. This may affect some of our more crucial mods more than the previous update. There is also the issue of a certain non-Mojang game being released and grabbing everyone's attention. Therefore, it may be at least 2 weeks before we have all the mods updated. We will try to get it done quickly but just consider this an Anticipated Release Timing.

Perhaps we should start a webpage with a countdown :/

So
1) The TOG servers will stay with Beta 1.4 for a week or so.
2) *Don't* update your client software if want to keep on playing on TOG.

Did someone say portal2? oops, no they didnt
I'm contemplating building a obsidan roof over my newly forged mark 3.5 airship. Any word on the effects of lightning on player made structures?

All messages I have seen so far have always confirmed that lightning strikes vertically, not at an angle, and rain puts out the fires. Only one person said that they had heard of the rain stopping before it had extinguished a lightning fire, so I don't know the truth behind that.

Its looking like 1.5 has a number of bugs at this stage. Rail appears to be severely broken. It might pay to proceed slowly as far as the server update is concerned until these bugs have been addressed.

In regard to lightning and player created buildings, there must be a logical counter you would think, say a block of iron becomes a lightning rod and these would need to be placed X distance apart on top of a structure.....?
(That is if they don't come up with a crafting recipe for a lightning rod)

Seems silly to introduce a threat without a corresponding counter....

If you build a roof of something non-flammable I think it should be ok as lightning strikes downward.
