Default Both servers are updated to MC 1.2.5

The update for both servers to Minecraft 1.2.5 is done. See MC 1.2.5 - some changes to how we play for the long version of the rules changes.

In summary, the changes for Sanctuary are:
  • The border is reset so it is a 4000x4000 block world
  • Jungles and ocelots can now be found in parts of the last 500 blocks near the border.
  • Some of the new world generated has an obvious border with old generated chunks. Players are welcome to smooth this if it is not within a claimed area.
  • Public warps work but will not be visible to other players with /warp list unless you delete then create the warppoint again.
  • Teleporting works for Sanctuary.
  • The Nether will not be regenerated here unless it is a necessity as it has previously been regenerated.
  • The MOTD you get when you log in is not working so I ask players to regularly read the forum (which you should be doing anyway).
In summary, the changes for Frontier are:
  • The border is reset so it is a 4000x4000 block world
  • Jungles and ocelots can now be found in parts of the last 500 blocks near the border.
  • Some of the new world generated has an obvious border with old generated chunks. Players are welcome to smooth this.
  • Teleporting works for Sanctuary, so warps were not needed after all. However, the warmup cannot be included so don't misuse the teleport. Remember that for Frontier, it is not meant to be used as a means of escape from mobs.
  • Parts of the Nether will be regenerated in coming days.
  • The MOTD you get when you log in is not working so I ask players to regularly read the forum (which you should be doing anyway).
  • Remember that double doors need fixing and mobs are smarter
A summary of the rule changes is:
  • Do not kill or kidnap or farm villagers.
  • Do not kill or kidnap or trap or farm village golems.
  • Players can make their own iron and snow golems.
  • NPC villages can have some alterations, but the same buildings, doors and farms must remain.
  • Do not use fire charges without admin consent.
  • Do not use spawn eggs without admin consent.
The major changes in Minecraft 1.2 are:
  • Jungle and other biomes
  • Ocelots and tame cats
  • tame dogs can breed
  • new chunk generation code
  • fire charges and spawn eggs can be activated by dispensers
  • new sandstone designs
  • different shades of wood planks for different trees
  • villagers breed and take shelter in houses
  • enemy mobs target villagers and are smarter
  • iron golems can be spawned by villagers or made by players
  • stairs and half-slabs can be inverted
  • vines can be climbed
  • the maximum build height is now at y=256 (though you can fly higher)
  • double doors have been fixed (so existing ones will need to be reattached)
  • chat lines now have a history
  • shift-f3 will give you location details without the graphs

Top job Sor! Honestly can't thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication to running and updating the server.

Okay, Frontier is now also updated. I have updated the OP.

Both the worlds have a small "lip" beyond the old area that wasn't deleted before expanding (50 blocks for Sanctuary, 100 for Frontier). This is to help those who have built right up to the border. However, there should be plenty of new stuff for everyone.... if you can find it.

Because another issue we will have is that our mapping program, Tectonicus, hasn't been updated to the ANVIL world data format. Consequently, we can't map the expanded worlds. Therefore, you might have to do a bit of exploring until the update arrives or we start using an alternative.

Enjoy,

Sorontar

The End has to be regenerated occasionally so that there is a dragon for people to fight. Never presume that anything you build there will be there for long.

Thanks folks. The Nether on Frontier is now trimmed to about 450x450. More glowstone for everyone within "easy" reach and no previously working portals should be affected.

I will completely refresh the End on both servers at another time since it requires the servers to be restarted.
