I'll try to update it tonight. I had a busy two months, and a conference from wed - sat, and finally get some downtime. Unfortunately, minecraft decided to fuck everything up by changing everything, so all backwards compatibility is nonexistent.
I'm going to throw a fucking chair at minecraft. I'm not the only one having this problem, but the server file on their website is 1.2.3, and not 1.2.4. Thus, I can't update. If people can't connect, let me know and I'll roll back to what it was, 1.2.1 maybe.
Yay! I have been working on the village near my place and its looking pretty nifty. I even have a boat with a sail in the water for fishing. Wish it could move around I have more iron golems then I can shake a stick at now ! lol Thanks for the fix! I can get into my house now to sleep faster!
I also want to try the new biomes and play with some friends.
I would like to keep the old world and also keep the teleporting commands because..
a) We could teleport far enough away from the old area to see the new biomes
b) I keep sleeping in my bed but constantly respawn at the starting area, which is a long, long walk to get to where I am.
Or a new world would be ok if we can have two servers. I just have seen a lot of people's work on the server and I don't think they'd like it all to go to waste. There's some pretty cool stuff that has been made.
To add to what was stated by Broken, I'm thinking for 1.7.2 we make a new world (keep the old one too) but make it stock (aka, no more teleport). Being able to teleport ruins parts of the game...for example any form of transportation. We can run the two servers side by side yes? Kind of like the give no-give transition
Getting rid of teleport would personally sway me away from playing on the server. I don't do survival, because I only like building shit. Plus, it's nice to have different transportation, but it sucks when you can't just pop back to an area because you need a certain block, or someone is trying to give you something. Makes you feel a little less alone even if you're hours of walking away from anyone, but that's just my opinion. I'm only a filthy casual.
Even though updates are available for Minecraft, I'd ask that we not update the server. The latest updates nerfed iron and gold farms, which is lame. There aren't really any updates that we need anyways, mostly cosmetic improvements.
