That's right! After such a long time, Creative is finally going to update to a newer Minecraft version, 1.11. We will be upgrading the server to support all new blocks such as Purpur Blocks, Magma Blocks and, best of all, Elytras! Why has Creative been lagging a lot recently? Will this be fixed? Something that's been affecting everyone on our Creative server the past few months is the lag spikes that happen every now and then. Recently, they've been getting bad enough that sometimes everyone is disconnected because of the spikes. We've done all we could to investigate the source of the issue and the only conclusion we could come to is this: The map is beginning to corrupt. That means we will need to reset the map. What about our builds? Can we save them? For the past few map resets, we always offered up downloads of your plots, and this time is no different. Starting today, Wednesday December 28th, you are able to download a schematic of your plot. To download, just go to our Creative server (/join Creative), stand on your Plot and type /download. Unfortunately, due to the large amount of guests that come on our server, we cannot help you with usage of the schematic once you get it. Note: Only the owner of a Plot can download a schematic. Why didn't you update sooner? We've wanted to update for the past few months, but a few things held us back. Until recently, a large portion of the players that go on Creative used older Minecraft versions like 1.8. Since the release of 1.11, they've begun to update to newer versions, and, if you haven't yet, we suggest you start using MC 1.11.2. Another reason we've been waiting was that the update would require a map reset as mentioned above. We wanted to get the most usage out of this version of our map as possible. What version of Minecraft should I use now? In order to support all of the features available in Minecraft 1.11, only players using 1.11 and above will be able to connect to Creative. Every other part of our network still supports 1.10 and 1.9. If you aren't using 1.11 yet, you should consider updating soon because of all the new features and performance improvements. When will all of these changes be made? The update to 1.11.2 as well as the map reset will happen on Wednesday, January 4th around 2pm EST. The maintenance shouldn't take longer than an hour and service will resume shortly after. Thanks for your continued support and have a happy New Year!
