BRINGING COLOR TO WOLVHAVEN
On 5 September 2017, WolvHaven went down for regular scheduled maintenance. However, things got a bit colorful while the maintenance was being carried out. As tests previously had proved successful, it was decided that this opportunity would be taken to upgrade the server to 1.12.1 – providing a surprise for all WolvHaveners waking up or arriving back home from school.
Here are some changes everyone should take note of:
- Colorful blocks and cool jazz from the minecraft 1.12.1 update
concrete, glazed terracotta and more
- Removal of the microblocks plugin
This plugin no longer works and would have no meaning keeping it on the server. We are open to suggestions from the community for a replacement plugin.
- Advisory on EasyElevator
While EasyElevator has been one of the greatest elevator plugins ever installed on the server and has served us well since 2013, its future is rather uncertain. The plugin has not been updated in ages and it is starting to show some issues where the ‘ding’ sound has to be disabled in order for it to work. We advise everyone to move from the EasyElevator plugin onto using craftbook sign elevators. We are open to suggestions from the community for a replacement plugin as well.
- New discord IRC
IRC – standing for Internet Relay Chat has been added into the server! (It’s not actually an IRC but just a fancy name for discord server connection) Players whom are in the WolvHaven discord server and are verified may start to use this service. The IRC text channel in discord connects the server’s chat to the discord server allowing you to chat with your fellow WolvHaveners on the go without having to worry much about data usage from mobile applications such as minechat and hyperchat. Run the command /discord ? in game for more information. The IRC will be a trial for 3 months.
- Dynmap chat may be removed
If the trial of the discord IRC proves popular, we will most likely be phasing out the dynmap chat functionality. This means that the server’s dynmap will no longer require an account to view anymore and remembering 1 less password.
Get colorful, WolvHaven!
