Due to various reasons (which I will not get into here) we are not able to get fully functional server software for Minecraft 1.8. HOWEVER, the server will be updated so that you can login from any version of Minecraft. That means that if you have Minecraft 1.7 OR 1.8, you will be able to play on the server. The downside of this method is that the new content in 1.8 will not yet be available.
This update will be completed next weekend, most likely Saturday October 4th.
For simplicity, I am changing the Staff ranks. All Staff will have green brackets now.
Kyle will have all “mod” powers, architect powers, and the ability to gain full access to anything on the server. This applies on all worlds except for Aedoric, where he will have no powers.
The rest of the Staff, Andrew, Sonic, Walker, Flower, Maddi, Crystal, and Sam, will have “mod” powers on all worlds. This includes all of their existing powers, as well as some more. These people do NOT have access to Creative mode, God mode, or Fly. (This however may change later)
Andrew, Sonic, Cole, and Glenn will also have access to their architect powers on the Creative World only.
This is basically reverting to our previous Staff system, except that Kyle will have slightly more powers than everyone else (Lead admin bragging rights?).
If you have any questions about this, please ask in-game, in the comments here, or on Twitter.
Survival World Changes
As previously announced, Wolfia is currently closed to the public. Quite a bit is changing regarding gameplay and overall architectural details (for example, roads and many buildings have been remade). A full list of changes can be found here, it is often updated with new changes and ideas.
Wolfia is expected to reopen, at least partially, sometime in the next few weeks.
As for Aedoric, it will be staying as our “standard” survival world. The majority of plugins will not be used on Aedoric, and there are no Staff powers that allow “cheating”.
