This is going to be a long blog post. I haven’t been updating the blog as much as I should have been, but now that I have some more time, I will try to post more often.
First of all, Merry Banmas to everyone! There is a lot I planned for Banmas, however, due to the long downtime (which I will explain below), it looks like most of it will not be happening. I will be giving out several Banmas gifts within the next few days, and I may do New Years fireworks if I can.
The Return of Wolfia
After several days of downtime, Wolfia is finally back. This was completely unexpected, and was due to issues with my computer. It was not something that was easy to fix, and therefore I could not get it working until yesterday. I have done some things to prevent this from happening in the future, including setting up a dedicated server PC. I apologize for not being prepared to fix this, though I think I have prepared in case this ever happens again in the future.
Now that the issues with my computer have been resolved, I have some good news, the Minecraft 1.7 update is now available for the server! The update will likely be coming later this week, or maybe next week. It will come before the end of the year. There is a lot of stuff coming, as I have mentioned in a previous blog post.
We have a new server spawn and portal hub, the all new Respawn Hub. It is much larger, and is much nicer than our old one. The new Respawn Hub is designed to be a connection between our worlds, including Wolfia and Creative, but also some new worlds, which I will discuss later. I do need some decorations for the new spawn, if you would like to contribute, let me know.
As I have mentioned previously, we have been testing a new single-rank staff system, to replace our original three-rank staff system. I think the new system has been successful, though I am not completely sure what the other staff think of it. If the majority of the six staff agree to the new system (over the original three ranks), we will be keeping it.
I think that is all for now, as I said earlier, I will try to update this blog more often. Have fun in Wolfia, and Merry Banmas!
