Default Why haven't we updated?

It seems that Mojang have updated Minecraft again. It is now up to 1.4.6 (Minecraft 1.4.6 is out!).

This is lovely for single players but it is a continual problem for servers as we rely on mods like Bukkit to make the game manageable. Bukkit has been having trouble keeping up with all the updates from Mojang. As a result, they have only been able to release Beta versions of up-to-date Bukkit, not Recommended Builds. Some plugins that use Bukkit wait for the RBs before they update. Some will update on Betas. So what about us?

We are still waiting for enough to be up-to-date and working. We had a test run last week, but now there is the 1.4.6 update. Hoo hum.

So our attention has been on the Feed The Beast world that is temporarily replacing Sanctuary. That is a Beta version too. It is not perfect. It is missing a lot of things we need for it to be permanent but we are still looking for fixes/more mods. So for now, it is temporary across Xmas and the New Year. It might become permanent, but no promises yet.

And we are still going to update Frontier, when things are tested and worked out.

In the meantime, enjoy Minecraft in whatever form you like
  • Frontier on 1.4.2 1.3.2
  • FeedTheBeast on its own client
  • 1.4.6 for single player
  • XBOX360 Update 7
  • Pocket edition version who knows what

Wow, I wander off for a year to get my degree (finally!) and so much has changed! It's seriously astounding. I'm trying to catch up in the forums, but wanted to know: it seems to have been gone for some time now, is Sanctuary gone for good?

Congratulations on your degree. I know how that feels.

We are still trying to get FeedTheBeast sorted out before we declare it a permanent replacement for Sanctuary. By sorted out, we are trying to sort out the lag in term of server settings and player behaviour and determine how various Admin powers can be better activated. We also don't know how long the mod pack will last since it has no definite structure or objective that I am aware of (it is a bit of hodge-podge of mods). We would be placing a lot of faith in it otherwise.

If Sanctuary is removed permanently, the Division will be informed, and (like for the original Creative and Survival worlds) the world would be made available for downloading. For now, there is no definite date for when the future of FTB is decided, but I would presume that if possible, it will remain throughout January.
