A Few Updates

Good Evening All,

A few updates on the comings and goings of Minecraft and Illyria:

1. Microsoft have bought Mojang for $2.5 BILLION dollars. Duck me...

2. There is no new news concerning Craftbukkit for 1.8, we may possibly try Spigot which will allow people to connect to the server from a 1.8 client, but it won't add any new features.

3. At some point this week the hosts are upgrading our DDoS protection. This will cause our IP to change, so the server may appear offline for a short while. Once I have re-pointed our domain name to the new IP you will be able to connect as normal :)

EDIT: Hosts have already changed the IP! It may take up to 48 hours for some people to connect, in the meantime though you can join with the numerical IP

And that's about it for now! What do you think about the takeover of Mojang? Should we try Spigot? Are we all doomed?  Will Zee ever be pink again? Only time will tell!

monkeymate02 No we are not doomed, other servers updated to 1.8 without problem. Try Spigot, It would be more convenient- until we fi ...
Pendle a If someone would make me a damn skin I'd be pink again! for now I am GHOUL. And uhh yeah minecraft stuff woo..

Minecraft 1.8 Release

Evening Folks,

In case you weren't already aware, Minecraft 1.8 has been released! However, in order for the server to run all the plugins, we need to stick to the 1.7.9/10 craftbukkit otherwise chaos would ensue. You can still play on the server fine, just make sure you edit your Minecraft profile to run 1.7.10 before logging in!!

On the subject of craftbukkit, it may be a while until a 1.8 version is released.
To cut a painful story short, Mojang bought Craftbukkit, Craftbukkit dev did not like, Craftbukkit dev files legal complaint against Mojang / Craftbukkit and has all versions removed from the site.

So there we go, we will update to 1.8 as soon as possible but watch this space!
More information can be found at this link
