I'm pleased to announce we've reopened the Vanilla server with our old data for 1.14! This means it's the full game with everything on 1.14 including pillagers and crossbows. It took me a little bit to get the full server version to properly connect but here it is. There are some caveats though.
We had to remove GriefPrevention from the Vanilla server due to it not properly working on 1.14 yet. We also felt that Vanilla should have the original Minecraft feel like in single player so it's something we were thinking about back when Vanilla was open last year. We recommend you be careful who you let near your stuff because even CoreProtect doesn't work so there will be no way to rollback grief.
We also need players to try to travel far and load in new chunks to ensure that chunks won't corrupt so we can evaluate Survival's eventual update. Flying with an elytra or riding a horse should help travel so leave a comment...
1.14 clients can now successfully connect to the network. This means that you don't have to change versions but remember it does not mean Survival or the other servers have been updated to 1.14 yet. News about this update says that it is not a huge update compared to 1.13, but it is still a major one. This means we need to wait until plugins update for 1.14 and ensure there are no bugs. We are a public server, not a testing one, so it's recommended by everyone to not try updating yet until all the kinks are ironed out.
However, there's a huge warning! There are already some massive bugs for 1.14 clients. Sneaking animations aren't visible and for some reason, chests won't open. Let us know if you find any more bugs to let the devs for ViaVersion know.
Feel free to connect with 1.12.2 all the way to 1.14. We may or may reopen the Vanilla server until Survival is fully ready to update as the data for it hasn't...
This weekend we're celebrating Good Friday and Easter Sunday with a sale! We hope you guys take advantage of it since it takes effect across everything in the donation shop. Let us know if you guys have some suggestions for future sales.
