    Hey guys been a while hope all is good :p, I will get to straight to the topic that I would like to discuss with you all today is why is Survival "mainly" still using 1.8 which was released 6 years ago!! instead why not rather look to update the server to a higher version of the game to add more immersiveness to the Survival gamemode and taking advantage of the plethora of amazing new features and fixing many of the bugs within 1.8.

    It's understandable why people don't like the newer versions due to some unnecessary changes Cough Cough "combat update"... that aside I've seen many servers implement plug-ins to have 1.8 combat rather than the newer systems which clears up the issue with people not liking the combat.

    I find the only issue I have with returning to mineheroes "myself" is that the servers version is 6 years out of date minecraft 1.8 doesn't really provide much content/playtime to the player to do in Minecraft sure we have 1.12 building blocks on the server currently but I can't use Shulker boxs and many more useful blocks and farming items,mobs etc the list go's on point being I feel updating the server to a higher version would help breath new life into the server and possibly boost player counts.

    I'd lastly like to touch on the "Server Content" I recently logged on after a while of not playing while the server content hasn't updated drastically since I took a break a few months ago but I can honestly say it's clear to see @Wazez is trying the best he can to provide new content for the server the new VIP rank is pretty neat over all don't have an issue with the servers content,but to get back on topic I feel updating the Survival server to a higher version the server could come to benefit from it with the new blocks being added to higher versions can lead to things like creating new kits and such but anyway that's about all I wanted to say if you managed to read my rambling this long :eek: thanks ~Epic_Fantasy :cool::D

    I think that this is a great idea! I don’t think SMP is a PvP oriented gamemode, so the replacement of 1.9+ PvP mechanics with server plugins would do splendidly. An update would be great, and with the addition of ViaBackwards (although I think Protocol Support is the newer replacement), players could still join on past MC versions if three so desire.
    +1, bring to SkyBlock as well ;)

    its not getting updated because it takes a lot of time to update and optimise the server to a newer version. a lot of stuff will need to be recoded, plugins that are global (asc-sell hoes) will have to probably be changed slightly in some way.
    with the amount of devs we have rn its not worth updating as that means that other servers wont get as many updates.
    also smp is getting work done (obv since it was meant to reset a month ago) which is gonna add content with out needing changing the version.
    if there were an admin + dev for each server then maybe it would be possible.

    This is because Factions reset more often than the other servers on the network. Most players would want at least a few new features added for every map of Factions. However, I disagree with this philosophy, as this can quickly burn out the game mode. It's nice to see updates every map but eventually, they will run out of ideas if they throw bunches of them every 6-8 weeks. Maybe they can add a new feature or two every other factions map. This can also allow devs (mainly cullan) to perfect new and bigger features, so there are fewer bugs/glitches at the start of the map (as you may have seen during the Prison Beta).

    It would be nice to see a server on the network that uses the latest version of minecraft. However not only is it too much effort for Cullan, but this will drag some players away. Sure we can add support for earlier versions of the game for Survival but this can become very buggy, especially dealing with entities/special items that doesn't exist at all in earlier versions. We can, however, take certain ideas/concepts introduced in later versions of minecraft and make them into workable features for Survival mainly (I think Survival out of every server deserves bigger updates that actually makes it feel survival like)

    also faction has its own admin which allows the work flow to increase and run much smoother. technially the admin is global but i think we all know that they work on factions more since they were a factions player. which is fine with me tbh

    Would love to see some new mechanics and updates come to survival. Others have integrated higher instillation level mechanics into gameplay but it also depends on whether custom coded plugins that allowed those mechanics were made for Mh. Either way Waz and cullan are the ones who have final say and maybe one day Smp will be upgraded. But till then we can only do what we can do on the smp server..

    That is very true I'd like to think maybe someday it will get an upgrade to a higher version

    It is very true that the servers plug-ins would have to be reworked to be functional and bug free on the server It's clearly understandable that these things take time but I'm sure they could slowly work towards doing such a task on the test server it doesn't need to happen right now it's just something they should think about for the future

    it would take a few months if a dev works on it full time, so "slowly working towards it" would take years. aint no body gonna wait for that.

    it would but he wouldnt use it to make smp 1.12 lmao. If they got an extra dev they would use them to make new features, then probably new sb plugin, then mini games, then smp.
    smp always comes last and 1.12 isnt necessary, only a few people want it, and most of them dont even play. like yourself.
