After nearly 2 weeks of working behind the scenes, I’m proud to say we’re running Minecraft 1.5 on Bukkit with nearly all items active. The new server was just activated, approximately 15 mins after the official release.
After you log in, do /kit quartz to get your first stack of Nether Quartz ore and start crafting. All Nether Quartz items are enabled including Block of Quartz with it’s variants and Nether Quartz stairs.
Extra Nether Quartz will soon (~1 hour) be able to be purchased from the in-game shops at /spawn both for SpaceCoins and ghast tears.
The new redstone items are currently disabled while finely tuning the performance. Hoppers add quite a bit of lag, and this needs to be improved. Expect these to be added on the server in the next 2 – 3 days.
Update: The crafting bugs have been fixed. In addition, Nether Quartz ore can now be bought from both shops at /spawn.
