Minecraft 1.3.1 is now live but don't update your client just yet, when the servers are updated an announcement will be posted with any new information regarding commands and server changes. I've been testing a new plugin to replace our current command system in case the developer doesn't update the plugin. (I think we lost the guy to Diablo 3, sometimes you just can't get enough.)

Just rememeber to bakup your old minecraft.jar so you can access the servers.

Also if you haven't played Minecraft before try out the demo, you just might like it.

I do not like the Ender Chests in here. I prefer Chickenbones/ (some other dude's) Ender Storage mod.

But the ender chests are better, because it is not so complicated just to get it working.

What is so complicated about the Ender Storage mod?

Every minecraft mod is complicated.

Nope. A lot of mods are simple. The only mods I,truly, consider complicated are Redpower 2 and Better Than Wolves.

Every mod i have tried i followed the readme exactly, and it still did not work, they all required getting some other mods that say to replace everything, then replace the first one you replace with another one, then add something into some folder that doesn't exist.

/Which is why there should just be something simple, like the nexus mod manager.

Once the Mod API comes out everything will be simple plugins, like the server. Right now I can force a texture pack with the new update, but only 16x16. With 1.4 they might put built in HD texture support with the API, and mods will be just like texture pack just drop them in and run them. On top of that if the server has a mod everyone that connects will get the mod upon connecting. Everyone has been waiting on that API since it will make modding Minecraft so much easier then using all these other APIs that don't always work together.

If you don't want to do all of that, just get the Technic launcher. It comes with 5 modpacks.

Then you don't get to play on the server? Seriously, you didn't pay any attention whatsoever to what you were doing? The only choice I can think of is to torrent a copy. Remember: Always, Always Always keep a backup copy of your jar just in case.

leviathan
08-03-2012, 06:51 AM
Well i didn't see this thread saying to save it, because i had updated a few minutes after it was available, and i don't normally keep an old update, but spoutcraft did not update, so i am still able to play on the server.
