A quick update on what’s happening with Creative/PS/Gladiator at the moment, and why they haven’t updated yet.
Before I get started though, I do want to remind everyone that we are a team of volunteers, and we run ClownerCraft for fun. Please be patient with us, and understand that sometimes real life has to take priority over the server. For many of the team we’ve suddenly hit a busy time with work/college/university etc, and can’t give up quite so much of our time to working on the network.
As mentioned before, there are still issues with 1.13.1 and world upgrading, and we are waiting to be certain this is fixed before we try and upgrade PureSurvival – as we intend to keep the world. PaperSpigot appears to have now fixed this issue, but it’ll still take us a little while to get PureSurvival updated for 1.13.1.
Creative, however, is a little more of a challenge. At the moment we are still waiting on a few rather important plugins to update for 1.13, meaning we can’t really do much to update creative until those release updates. And while we can, in theory, keep it on 1.12.2 – there are significant issues there with 1.13 version support. And generally, managing servers on different versions is not an easy task.
And in terms of Gladiator, the update reset all of the game’s setup (because of changes to the plugin to make it work for 1.13) – so we need to take the time to reconfigure it all. And since we’ve got to do that anyway we have decided it’s time to improve gladiator again, which will include more waves, as well as multiple arenas. But naturally – this all takes time, which is something we’re in short supply of right now.
1.13 is a pretty big update in terms of technical changes, and I think we were really lucky to be able to update Survival so early, but we also really underestimated how long it would take to get everything fully updated.
