The Waffloid Server 1.8 Update: Soon™
Today Spigot announced the release of their Spigot / Bukkit / Craftbukkit 1.8 build, and that can only mean one thing. The Waffloid Server 1.8 update is just around the corner! :^D
Now this doesn’t mean I will be updating right away. Of course, with every major server update I like to wait until a later more stable build before updating the server. Consider the first release of an update as a sort of beta test, kind of like Minecraft. Almost every Minecraft major update comes out with a new patch or 2 a few days after launch, just to fix the kinks of the original release. And this is why I will wait about a week or so for a newer and more stable build before updating the server!
I also plan on reverting back to the old system of donations. This means if you donate for, say, Diamond rank then you will get some commands along with it as well. This means anyone who has donated for a rank after the EULA change will be changed over to the + version of the rank, and ranks will go back to just being called Diamond instead of Diamond and Diamond+.
Also with the new 1.8 world coming soon, I figured it would be interesting if the members of the server would like to help us choose a world to use for the 1.8 survival world. So this means you can log in, or sign up for a free account, and leave a comment on this post with a seed of a really awesome 1.8 world! :^D (no amplified and must contain all biomes)
Hope you all find this to be great news for the days and weeks ahead of us, and I hope everyone out there had a safe Thanksgiving and Black Friday! May the deals be ever in your favor….
