Well, here we are. After a long wait, the server is finally updated to 1.7. It might not seem like it, but a lot has changed since the last world reset back in 1.5. Here’s a little graphic I put together to show just how much has happened in the past 7 months:
Big thanks the team over at Bukkit for coming through with this update and all the others in the past. So many servers, BlockBox included, couldn’t exist without their hard work and dedication to providing such a great piece of software. Now, here’s the lowdown on the update.
- Updated to 1.7.2
- Survival worlds reset
- Player homes reset
- Player balances reset
- Minor permissions changes
- A few plugins removed due to disuse/incompatibility with 1.7 (Mob bounties will be back as soon as possible!)
- Some Creative plots cleared
- Several behind-the-scenes adjustments
Per usual, here’s the download link for the survival world. It’s a very large file, so be prepared for a long download time. If at all possible, please use the adfoc.us link to help us pay for hosting costs.
I know I’ve said this before, but I’d just like to say how humbled I am with how far BlockBox has come. It all started on my old computer back in May 2012 during 1.2.5 as just a little creative server; I could never have imagined back then that it would last this long or be this successful. It gives me chills to think about all of the amazing people I would never have known and all the great times I never would have had if I hadn’t started BlockBox. It’s truly been an extraordinary experience. Thank you to everyone who makes our community great, and enjoy 1.7!
