It appears that the version of Bukkit that we were running before, compatible with 1.5.1 Minecraft, is no longer available. So we got surprise-updated to 1.5.2! Surprise!
Fortunately, it seems to be working ok! Let me know if y’all spot any problems.
Hi folks! Just a quick note to let you know that I have re-set the nether. This was mostly so that nether quartz could be harvested without having to travel very far away, and also a little bit in hopes that we would find a nether fortress nearer by than the last couple that we found!
All over-land portals are still in place, and will either link to or create new portals upon passing through them! This may result in the need to create some portals by hand in the nether to get them to link properly, where we were using them for transportation within a 1km range. If you need help with this, let me know!
Otherwise, enjoy the now-more-accessible nether quartz! When I first went through, I could see at least three veins, visible from where I built my Nether-base!
Hey folks. Been a while since I posted that the map has updated; but it has, in fact, updated pretty regularly since the last post, to the tune of once or twice a week. I expect this to continue, mostly, and won’t try to post every time I do a map update.
Everyone is welcome to sign up for an account here, and post cool new things that show up on the map! All you have to do is register, and I’ll be happy to promote you to “authors” on this blog!
Also, it’s time to update your clients! The server has moved up to the latest release candidate build of CraftBukkit, compatible with 1.5! Yay!
Updated the map again tonight! Enjoy!
Hello wood punchers!
There are several server updates to share:
- The server has moved up to version 1.4.7.
- The Punchwood Map has been updated again.
- The map also now has a couple of options for Signs! The “All Signs” selection will display all of the signs on the map that contain at least some text. The “Map Markers” option will display only signs that have the first line of the sign set to “[MAP]“. The text displayed will be lines 2 through 4. None of these types of signs have been placed yet, but I intend to place a few before the next map update!
Since the last map update, there’s been a fair amount of activity out at The Corner. Check out the new railway station! Also, the city of Zurich has grown quite a bit.
Once again, the server has been upgraded. It’s at 1.4.6. Also, the map has been updated. There’s been a lot of work and exploration since the last run!
Hey folks! The server is running at 1.4.5, the map has been updated once again, and I’ve added two new warps for our new players’ builds. Enjoy!
I have upgraded Punchwood to Minecraft 1.4.4, so it is once again compatible with the latest release! We also have the Bukkit plugin running, though it’s on a dev version, so if you see anything wonky please give me a holler. Also, the map is being updated as I type this, so by the time you read this, it’s very likely ready to go.
The server has been upgraded to 1.4.2, and the world has been reset! That’s right, our map is no longer valid. It’s a whole new world! Happy mining!
The few of you who might actually check this page probably already know this, but I’ll spell it out anyhow! I have upgraded the amount of RAM available to our server, and it seems to be performing admirably.
Also, the map has now been updated! You’ll notice there are now fewer versions of it… only keeping the nice lighting and cave views. This saves a whole buncha space, and makes it possible to update the map in less time. I never really used night view anyhow!
And finally, there is a new warp! It is named “NewSpawn”, and though the world’s spawn point hasn’t really moved, this allows us to work and play in new chunks that are all 1.3.1, and so have all the nifty new resources as possibilities. We’ve already discovered a desert temple! I haven’t seen a jungle one yet…
