We are finally resetting the map for 1.8. There is a few changes to keep in mind:
Custom Map! - That means all the biomes will be different and a little overwhelming at first.
Shop Changes - There are some slight price changes made to the admin shop. You will also be able to sell spawners in the market again.
Safe Teleport - This will be turned off, which means... Those of you who set homes on water to glitch into bases.. Will no longer be able to do that.
Vote Rewards - A few rewards for voting were being changed over the last few weeks. This will continues to happen until we are happy with where they are at.
Punishments - There will be a mandatory 3 day temp ban for any players found using a hacked client.
1.8 Blocks and Items - Because bukkit no longer provides updates for 1.8 we are relying on our own system. Most blocks and items are going to be available to you in game as well as recipes. However, we are still working on adding a lot of these 1.8 blocks. This is a big update. So if you find things that are missing don't be alarmed. If you find any bugs, exploits, or glitches, please report them on the forums. There will be a thread open on the forums to keep players informed of 1.8 item and block changes done to the server.
Donations and Legendary Items - Donations will be given out again a week from today on Wednesday, October 22nd. There will be Legendary Item books that will be reissued to those who donated for them. You will just need to find any admin to redeem them as normal.
