    So after doing some research and spending a half day making sure everything was backed up...I got a plugin from Spigot that allows 1.8 blocks in the game. We are not truly on 1.8 so, I'm not sure exactly what will happen, if anything, when we update to Spigot's 1.8 build.

    This is a protocol hack that allows 1.8, it isn't actually a true 1.8. Works for now though. We may see some interesting bugs but, that should be expected with Spigot as well. Lot of things changed.

    Anyway, we can now have some fun with 1.8 stuff before Spigot get's their update out. We should be fully updated with Spigot 1.8 in a matter of weeks but, I found this today and can trust this plugin so, I figured I would see if it would work :p

    You will have to update to 1.8 to join the server of course.

    Well poo. I was hoping the server wouldn't update to 1.8 until all the common mods were updated as well (Rei's and Optifine, for example)

    Optifine is updated, but Rei's is not.

    Wow, awesome Thy!

    Now i've finally got my colored beacons!
    I noticed the 'tab'-button, which you use to see the players online, is much better also! Instead of showing 150 empty spaces for names, it now shows just the players online - and even better: what their skins head looks like!

    The tab list only shows a max of 60 players, still a valid point though :p

    Skyblocks will be down for a while. I am still deleting old region files from it before being able to back it up and update it as well. I've had it deleting for over 12 hours already, lol.

    I looked at the size, which was smaller then survival and thought it would go faster. Then I realized the region files are quite a bit smaller since there isn't much in them so, there is a massive amount of files to be removed. I can't even get the list of them through the FTP client because it times out before it can get the full list. It'll be up eventually though.

    Since we have the new blocks, does this mean that the world generation is 1.8 now? Or do we still have to wait?

    World gen should be 1.8. I haven't had any luck finding any new ores myself yet but, I haven't spent too much time looking either.

    Found a bunch of bunnies, trying to get the new Depth Strider enchant.
    Also, Colonel kindly decorated the spawn area in some nice colors :D 2014-11-07_09.06.15.png 2014-11-07_09.10.24.png 2014-11-07_09.12.17.png

    After some messing around, I finally figured out why the world gen wasn't working quite as well as it should. The new blocks are now spawning in abundance, in newly generated chunks.
