1.17 Chunk Regeneration Complete

Last Updated on January 15, 2022 by Kooldude183

In order to generate new 1.17 blocks and items, yesterday, we have shrunk our border, deleted all unused chunks outside the border, regenerated all of those chunks, then restored the border to its previous size. You can expect to find these regenerated chunks by going farther out into the world, closer to the border past these coordinates:

Northern side: Past z-coordinate -4500

Southern side: Past z-coordinate 5600

Western side: Past x-coordinate -5750

Eastern side: Past x-coordinate 5900

In addition, we have reset the End, not including the center island and existing enderman farms.

Besides the few plugins that need to be replaced or updated, this completes the server’s 1.17 update process.

Important update regarding the grave system

Last Updated on January 15, 2022 by Kooldude183

Since we recently updated the server to 1.17.1, our grave system is not working at this time. We are still waiting for the plugin developer to update it to 1.17. Due to this, when a player dies, a grave will not be spawned, and the inventory will instead be dropped at the death location with the vanilla despawn rate of 5 minutes (when the chunk is loaded). I apologize for the inconvenience.

Server Now Running on 1.17.1

Last Updated on January 15, 2022 by Kooldude183

The server has been updated natively to 1.17.1! That means you can now experience all 1.17 features on the server, including the new blocks, items, and mobs, on both the Java and Bedrock Edition.

Because of this update, we will be adjusting the world border at some point within the next few days to generate new 1.17 chunks. Stay tuned for that.

Regarding plugin compatibility, about 95% of our plugins seem to be starting up correctly, with the ones that aren’t starting up not being as important to the overall server experience. However, some issues with the plugins may arise in-game. If you notice these issues, please report them on the Discord. One issue I’ve seen so far is the custom image maps failing to render, which the plugin developer is already working on.

Regarding compatibility with older client versions, the server will continue to support any Java 1.16.x version for now, along with any 1.17 version up to 1.17.1. Bedrock users can join on any 1.17 version up to 1.17.10.

Due to the server having to convert chunks from 1.16 to 1.17 as players load them in, you may notice occasional lag spikes since the server has to process these chunk conversions.

For any questions, you can comment below or talk to us on the Discord.

Updated 1.17 Server Update Information

Last Updated on July 15, 2021 by Kooldude183

The Java Edition has recently updated to 1.17.1, and the server should now support 1.17.1 client connections. However, the server is still on 1.16.5. Java players can continue to join on any currently released 1.16.x or 1.17.x version.

We will be updating the server to 1.17 within the next 1-2 weeks, after testing concludes and shows that it is safe to update. The server software developers have notified us that the software at the current state may be ready for production use. We still have to test plugins, although most, if not all, the common plugins we use have already updated.

We will also be resizing the border to generate new 1.17 chunks. More information about that will be announced later.

Any questions can be left in the comments, the Forums, or the Discord server.
