Minecraft Skyblock 1.6.2 Upgrade

How to get horses, horse armor and related stuff you ask? 3 ways:

1. Use /kit horse in game. This is a one time thing, so make sure you’re on your island when spawning your horses.

2. There’s a new villager at spawn named Horse Vendor. It sells all horse related stuff for ghast tears.

3. Finally, for those of you that wish to support the server and help pay the bills, I’ve set up a horse package in Buycraft. It has all 3 horse armor types, 4 spawn eggs, leads and a name tag. You can check it out here: . Thank you!

The upgrade to 1.6.2 is finally upon us. After a lot of things happened, mostly unrelated to Minecraft or the servers, I was able to sit down and finish updating all plugins on all 3 servers.

Minecraft 1.6.2 UpdateSo we’re ready to update, and it has been scheduled for tomorrow morning. The approximate date and time is Jul 29, 2013 at 9:00 AM GMT. To see what time it will be for you, check out the following link: Skyblock Update to 1.6.2 Maintenance Time

The expected downtime for maintenance while updating all servers in the network will be approximately 30 minutes.

Horses anyone? Yee-haa! 🙂

Update 09:07AM – Servers have been brought down for maintenance. Estimated maintenance time: 30 mins
Update 09:33AM – Main Skyblock server has been updated. Started testing for errors, it’s not yet available to players.
Update 09:42AM – Herding Llamas. Maintenance almost done.
Update 09:46AM – Maintenance complete. Skyblock server is updated to 1.6.2 and running. Connect and enjoy.

In a few hours after getting some proper sleep I’ll update the rest of the servers. For now Survival Games is down until it’s updated. Sorry.

All servers in the network have been updated to 1.6.2, including Survival Games. They’re up & running. Enjoy 🙂

      What do you mean? If it’s about players needing a newer Java version, I’ll post instructions how to update it. Should be fairly easy.

    Unfortunately, this means I won’t be on for quite some time. I need to have the Mac store update my computer (believe me I’ve tried everything), but before the summer’s gone I’ll be back! I’ll miss you guys 🙁 I’ll go on Minechat and the forums still though.

      Why do you have to update the whole computer and not just Java? The new one doesn’t take many more resources than the old one, I think…

    Actually my computer has to update because it is too old to even update Java. I’ll try your link though.

    just to say about the bugs as no one has said them.
    The ones I have found out are.
    1. anyone can kill horses no mater where
    2. They can take the saddles and armor form the horses inventory
    3. /home is not working just takes you to spawn

    amazing update just a few things to note.

      Thank you for the bug report. Already plans to address them all, though probably tomorrow will be ready.

    Heat why are you not on the server a lot and if you are on more than when you are on you won’t always have to be doing as much stuff at once

      I’ll be on the server more in the near future. Lots of work in the back, also RL stuff. But that is mostly done.
