After playing some games created by server members in Minecraft, I decided to write some new plugins to make the games more fun and enjoyable. I am currently working on IronBall, a version of soccer for Minecraft. This plugin should serve as the fun replacement for War when it’s ready.
New versions of core software for the cmastudios server are coming out soon. This means the server will be a bit faster (notably the every ~10 minute lag spikes will be gone.) I am also getting together the world management functions so user-controlled worlds will be a reality.
The plugin “Minecraft War” was removed from the server due to lag issues. I still enjoy the plugin and help develop it. Solving the lag issues will require a lot of work, which I intend to spend over the summer.
