Minecraft 1.8 released

Minecraft V1.8 was officially released earlier today. We will be adding it to all the servers later today. We just need to do a bit of internal testing before we release it. As of 8:00 AM Central US time there is no bukkit version of 1.8. We will update this post when 1.8 is available on our servers and give further details.

Update 4:45 PM Central US time

We are still testing the 1.8 release. From the server side 1.8 ‘appears’ to be using quite a bit more CPU than the 1.7 version. We were working on finishing up our testing when the minecraft.net servers appear to have gone somewhat off-line. Without working minecraft.net servers we can’t get logged into our testing servers for me testing.

More updates to follow.

Update 9:00 AM Central US time

OK, sorry for the log delay, but Minecraft 1.8 is now available on all EdgeVPS and Thunder Cloud Games servers. A world of warning: Backup your client software and your world before upgrading to 1.8. The 1.8 game client can not connect to 1.7 games. You also can not use a 1.8 world with a 1.7 version of the game. In other words, once you go to 1.8 you can’t switch back to 1.7 without restoring.

For the time being minecraft1.thundercloudgames.com will be running Craftbukkit build 1060 on 1.7 and minecraft2.thundercloudgames.com will be running 1.8.

Please give us feedback on how 1.8 is working for you!

      We’re working on this just as fast as we can. With the minecraft.net servers not working / responding properly it’s very difficult to test. If you get logged out of a game you can’t get back in.

        Please open a support ticket for support. Having said that, the 1.8 version of Craftbukkit is not out yet. You can only use the vanilla 1.8 Minecraft.
