Well Mojang came out with 1.10 much quicker than anticipated. We've only been on 1.9 for 3 months and it already hits. Spigot has already updated but we may have to wait a few more days before all the plugins are fully updated before we can upgrade.
Needless to say, we have some major decisions to make. 1.10 has brought some new world generation features that will not show up in previous explored chunks in either the 1.9 world or eternalzone. The nether has also brought some new blocks to the terrain generation.
I anticipated the 1.9 world being around for at least 6-9 months. Due to the fact that the 1.9 world probably hasn't been explored too heavily, I am currently considering just leaving the 1.9 world as is and calling it the 1.10 world. However, we would have to definitely reset the nether.
Let me know in the comments what you think we should do!
You can now set a town plot as a farm so your residents can only break farming related blocks and kill animals. They will not be able to break blocks or place any blocks! To make a farm plot type /plot set farm.
Allows planting and breaking of specific blocks set in the config.
Allows killing of animals by town members.
These plots still require the normal Build, Destroy, Switch, ItemUse plot permissions to allow residents/allies/outsiders to be configured.
A farm plot that allows only town residents to use it would have a plot perm line like so: Perm: Build:R – – Destroy:R – – Switch: – – – Item: – – -.
BattleZone has reached its 4 years in existence! We have kept a 98% uptime during the last 4 years, which means we rarely go down. Not many servers get to reach this accomplishment. Thanks to all those who helped keep this a great community over the years. We have no desire to stop any time soon! BattleZone will continue to exist for many years to come, so strap in and enjoy the ride.
We look forward to 2016 with minecraft v1.9. This is a new era of BattleZone with less negative energy and a stronger better community.
Stay tuned for more updates as we still work on completing the 1.9 transition fully. We are at about 85% the same setup as 1.8 so we are almost there! :) Just a few more plugins to go.
