4/14/2014 - Changelog

Hey everyone, I’ve decided that from now on I’ll be posting daily changelogs to chronicle changes that I’ve made to the blog, forum, and server. This is partly for transparency, but mostly to keep everyone up to date with our changes. Obviously, I won’t be posting a changelog for days that I don’t make any significant changes. Each of these posts will be tagged with “#changelog”, so you can find them accordingly.

Blog:

  • Added Disqus comments for all posts.
  • Minor text and CSS changes.

Forum:

  • Added a Banners page for forum banners. I hope to make more of these in the future!

Server:

  • Tree cutting no longer automatically breaks leaves, to conserve durability on tools.
  • Various NCC edits.

I’m happy to announce that The Minecraft Blog now supports per-post comments by Disqus. Basically, you can now leave comments on every post on the blog. We hope this will help get our viewers more engaged with the site. Let us know how you like it and if you have any issues.

We’re now testing our newest CTF map, Ascent. In this map, the Red team must climb the tower to snag the blue flag, while blue must drop down to the red base and bring the red flag back up with them.

We’re testing this map now, so come help us out!

Anonymous: How do i get minecraft?

The tree cutting feature on the server has been changed to only work with gold and diamond axes, and no longer plants saplings. This should hopefully avoid some durability and wood overabundance issues.
