Sentinel is now on 1.18!
« on: January 02, 2022, 01:06:07 PM »
Sentinelcraft has updated to 1.18!


Dear Sentinelcraft community,

Now that we are into 2022 and looking forward to what this year holds for us all. We have happy to announce that we have updated to 1.18: Caves & Cliffs - Part 2! This means you can now join using 1.18 in your launcher, play and explore ungenerated horizon and kattalox terrain or even explore under your current builds for new resources and caves!

What to expect?

- All servers run using 1.18.
- If you have issues with joining with 1.18 (outdated hardware), fear not! We are now using ViaBackwards. This means you can join the server using 1.16.5 and upwards, although you may not see the new textures you will still be able to play the game and stick with the community!
- Updated plugins! Less outdated things, less bugs!
- Alpha worlds will be reset and returned back to vanilla generation for a time. Time to explore the truely unique and world generation of 1.18!
- Due to the massive changes in world generation, Pern is having to be left behind.
- New Voting Shop!

If any issues arise, please make a bug report here: Bungee bug report board.

Technical changes
- Server has updated from Java 16 to Java 17. Could cause some strange behaviour from some plugins.
- World borders for Horizon and Kattalox will not be increased due to all chunks now having twice as much in them (world now going down to -64). This would bloat world size to well over 100GB which is already too big for a minecraft world.
- World will now go from -64 to 320 in all exisiting chunks, meaning new terrain will be generated below the world in Alpha, Horizon and Kattalox
- Majority of plugins have updated to 1.18 while a few have yet to update, this may cause some unexpected bugs in game.

Great job as always on the update!

Regarding Pern, I had a quick idea, which may or may not be feasible, but thought of sharing.
Maybe we could host another server with just Pern and add compatibility to join from 1.18.x+ clients, but the server itself is on 1.17? We could give an IP like pern.sentinelcraft.net or something.

Just a thought on the matter.
