External: The 1.8, Raw Survival server is now LIVE!, Update by Dr. Cossack

As previously announced, our new server, running vanilla Minecraft 1.8 and named Raw Survival, is LIVE!

Those looking for more information on why a second server is being launched might want to read my previous news post on the subject. The short version is, this is meant for those who want to play with 1.8 right away, as the main server will remain on 1.7.10 for quite some time. The latter remains my main focus and our largest play ground!

This took quite a bit of effort to get running: different server structure, different hosting setup, strict limitations to work with... Still, I was able to get several key complements running the way I wanted them to, so that your visit to the 1.8 server will keep you in the same familiar environment you're used to. Countless hours went into this, but it's still possible that I neglected something. Please let me know if that's the case.

Those interested can jump in at:

65.60.18.124:25566


The Raw Survival name was chosen to represent both the added challenge (no convenience plugins here!) and the fact that will be a test platform for future updates. While I'll strive to give this place my usual attention to details, its very nature means that it will possibly come with less stability. This server will also be a test ground for the eventual migration of the main Survival one to this server version and platform.


- Core differences with the Survival server

Going with vanilla Minecraft unfortunately involves some losses. The following are not available or possible at the new place:
- Chest & doors protections
- Anti-griefing protections
- Multiple worlds
- DynMap
- Preview mode: must be whitelisted to log in
- Automated End resets
- Achievements
- PvP arenas
- Ranks
- Quick tree felling

On a more positive note, I'm very happy to announce that I was able to get the chatroom integrated on the Raw Survival server! This means that you'll be able to enter the chatroom to chat with the in-game players, and that the players will be able to keep in touch no matter on which server they're playing!

As indicated above, the whitelist procedure doesn't support the preview mode that was added on the Survival server some months back: registration is mandatory. Anyone currently whitelisted on the 1.7.10 server has access to 1.8, as the list is shared.

The lack of protection plugins means that buildings can't be locked away, nor can doors or chests. While griefing is still strickly forbidden, and offenders will be banned, you need to take care of storing your valuables in secured locations. Don't leave everything out in plain sight!

One extra tip: all commands, most notably private messaging, require FULL usernames to be provided. However, you can rely on tab completion to get the job done. For example, if you want to send me a message, you can start to type "/msg drc", hit the TAB key, and it'll turn into "/msg DrCossack"... assuming I'm online, of course!


- The new world

A seed has been carefully selected to make sure that all biome types are available around the spawn point. Mega taiga? Check. Ice spikes? Check. Mesa? Check. Mushroom island? Check. Deep ocean? Check.

To properly manage growth, a world border has been installed. It is currently set to 2000 blocks around 0,0, and will be expanded as needed. This is a square border, so you can move between x=-2000, z=-2000 and x=2000, z=2000.


- Future

As soon as it can be done reasonably, this server will be migrated to the new option that'll rise from Bukkit's ashes. Once we have succesfully tested it, and most of the appropriate plugins are available, the current Survival server will be moved over to 1.8 as well. After some further stability tests, the current plans will have the Raw Survival world added as an extra destination in Central's TransHub, finally bringing back all players together in the same place. This will be a delicate transition that will only happen when it is safe to do so.

If you have any questions or comments, please reply to this news post or contact me directly!

Enjoy the new server!


- Post-scriptum

An event is scheduled to happen this weekend, during Events Night, on the main Survival server. More details coming later this week!

the world border only goes to x:1500 z:1500 and x:-1500 z:-1500, this would equal the 3000 blocks. Should probably upgrade it to 6000 blocks from 0,0

Also on a random note, is sponge going to remain in the world seeing how it spawns in ocean monuments? Or we going to remove it somehow to help prevent griefers from using it.

So the world border command sets a total width, and not a distance from the central point... I guess the documentation I read on this was wrong. Thanks for letting me know, I'll change this tonight.

UPDATE: The world border now goes from -2000 to 2000 instead. This should be large enough for now, and it can be increased later on!


Considering that I can't control the appearance or placement of specific blocks (due to vanilla server), we have no choice over the use of sponge.

I am suggesting everyone post a sign identifying owner/builder since there is no way to protect homesteads. I am exploring south of spawn and have built 3 temp bases with signs so if I have infringed, the owners can let me know.
