Minecraft 1.8 And The Waffloid Server
So today is September 2nd, the day Minecraft 1.8 gets the long awaited release. In a previous news post I mentioned how the server will be retiring the old pre-1.7 world in favor of getting a new 1.8 survival world. Well the server is ready to update right here, right now, as we speak, so anything is possible.
Well I am going to wait 3 days until I update the server, that should be enough time for active players to move their items and such to the 1.7 spawn. After which I will update the server to 1.8, get the new survival world running, and keep all 3 survival worlds running for another 3 days. This is just in case anyone wants to move their stuff from the old survival to the newest 1.8 survival, as well as let us know how the server will fare with 3 survival worlds running (spoiler alert?).
TL;DR (wasn’t even that long but dokay)
I will be waiting 3 days until I update the server to be compatible with Minecraft 1.8
After that, we will get that new 1.8 survival world and still run the server for 3 more days with the old pre-1.7 survival world until we toss the old survival out the window like Kayla’s laptop.
Edit: After reading over Spigot for 1.8, I found out it only allows players to log in via 1.8 clients, but actually runs on 1.7.10. So we will likely have to wait a bit longer for a legitimate Spigot 1.8 to come out for us to get that new survival world. Ayy at least people have that much more time to move their stuff over.
