Minecraft 1.6 update progress

Just thought to give everyone a sneak peek on what’s going on behind the scenes.

In the past we had it easier, since it was just Skyblock and a bunch of plugins. Now with an entire network of servers, there are many more things to take care of before I can upgrade. Also, because all the servers are connected to each other, gotta upgrade them all at once.

Due to this, it’s taking a bit more than it used to in the past. But progress has been good, and almost everything is updated to 1.6. There are just a handful plugins I must change slightly to work with the new version and then we can upgrade it all in one go. I expect this to happen in about 14 – 16 hours from now.

      You’re not rude at all, it’s a legitimate question. Back when I wrote that post, 12 – 14 hours was my best estimate. Right now… I’m not 100% sure I’ve been told not to give precise schedules when not 100% sure. It only makes sense.

      So all I’ll say right now is it takes a little longer than anticipated, due both to the amount of changes, improvements as well as bugfixes, and a bit of real life stuff getting into the coding time. I’ll do my best to finish as soon as possible.

    I hate to be “that that guy” but it’s been a few days since you posted this. I j just want to know a better estimated date. I know your trying real hard. I just want to know how much longer. I know you have a life of your own I’m just curious about how much longer til the update?

    I am sorry if this is kinda of topic but what did you decide to do for the animal farms that had a possible appearance at spawn on the server. I am not sure if there was ever a final decision but it is on the back of my mind and I haven’t seen anything on the forums about it. Thanks Heatseeker0!

    Keep preservering Heatseeker0! at the moment I’m glad that the server is still 1.5 because I haven’t found an Inbrowser version of 1.6 yet, I play on public computers, but thanks for all the hard work to make this amazing skyblock server.

      Kind of… each time I’ve given someone an estimate, real life got in the way. So knowing most mods I’ve ported to 1.6.2 and fixed for bugs, I really hope – if RL won’t interfere again – that in a day or two at most we’ll be running 1.6.2 on all servers.

      No worries, and yea 24 – 48 hours sounds right. There’s not much left to do before the update.

      I am the only who isn’t excited for this, but I’m buying my computer an update. This means that maybe 3-4 days after the server updates I’ll be able to play again! YAY!

    Hey, Heat! I really don’t care how long it takes and neither should anyone else because if people are really faithful to your server they should let you get on with it and stop badgering you. Even if this server NEVER updates I’ll still play on it. 😀 I think you’re one amazing person who dedicates his life to what he loves. Don’t ever change!

    who cares when it comes out guys, just focus on preparing for the update. the only question I have for you heat is: will I be able to claim ownership of my island, I know you said a while ago that you were working on it, since my island owner doesn’t play MC anymore. anyway thank you for all you are doing, and I am praying that any issues for you IRL are sorted out, no one likes dealing with problems IRL.

      Enjoy. People said the same when 1.5 came out. But the server doesn’t lag, and for your computer you can perhaps try Optifine?
