Pushing Onward - Winthier History

Winthier was founded in the January of 2012 by hkenneth. LanceDH and I were admins from the start (technically, I joined a few weeks after the fact). Some of you may remember the survival world we had back in the day. It is still accessible for viewing on the Museum server. In spirit, that server wasn't much different from the one that we play on today. There was McMMO instead of Skills, and we had a player run market and auctions.

The Classic Spawn

Almost exactly one year later, Winthier experienced the first world reset. A whole new server was set up with a brand new, heavily customized world, now knows as the Extreme world. It featured exciting and unique landscapes nowehere else to be found. Along came a whole new set of feature plugins, including economy and dragon travel. In the meantime, the old worlds were moved to the legacy server, now known as the Museum. As you would expect, everything got wiped, from inventories over skill levels to credits.

It wasn't until March of the same year that hkenneth decided to move on to other things and I agreed to continue running the Winthier servers and its community. My first order of business was to maintain consistency, improve or fix the features we were already used to, instead of making big changes and potentially turning players away. After all, I had yet to prove to you guys that I could run the server the way we had all grown accustomed to in a satisfactory way. There would not be huge paradigm shifts, removals of beloved plugins or resets of lived in worlds for a very long time.

New Chat and PokeMob

This feature had to go on hiatus back in March when 1.9 was released which made it difficult to use spawn eggs. But now after some hard work, we are proud to announce that the plugin is finally back, so you can once again catch and release your favorite pets or vicious monsters. Based on our testing, the new polar bear can already be caught.

Chat Settings

This plugin will look and feel like what you are used to, but right off the bat, there are some convenient new features. This plugin is cross server at its core, so the channels you join or leave and the settings you change will go with you as you switch between main and creative, for example. All commands and tab completions work across all servers, including party chat.

Minecraft 1.10 - Update NOW

We just updated to 1.10 and everything seems fine. In order to play on Winthier, simply select the latest version in your Minecraft launcher. This is the default, so most of you will just be fine without doing anything. We are looking forward to seeing you on the server.

In other news, we have brand new Resource worlds with all the new and exciting biomes, blocks and animals. So to find the new 1.10 stuff, simply use the /Resource menu.

Minecraft 1.10 was just released and we will update the server as soon as possible. However, as of now, we are not able to do so just yet. So, in order to continue playing on Winthier, you have to use 1.9.4 for now. You can do that by adjusting your launcher settings. You can find detailed instructions on the relevant wiki page. We expect the server to be ready within a couple of days and will keep you updated. Thanks for your patience.

ElectricSparx Optifine hasn't even updated yet.
feydk Admin And once again we can send a big thank you to md_5 and the Spigot team for being so fast to put out an update.
Kitsune_Aki Is it just me, or does that update feel a little bit rushed..? Wasn't as hyped as for 1.9 and earlier versions. But...
