Minecraft Server is Back

Hey all!

Great news. With Minecraft 1.2.4 released a little over a week ago. I'm happy to announce the relaunch of the Minecraft server! The new server will be more powerful than ever before, with over 4GB RAM to handle many players. The new IP address of the server will be released soon.

With this exciting update along with many new features, its going to be more fun than ever before.

Some earlier features released in 1.2:

  • Ladders have regained their collision box
  • Maximum height increased to 256 (from 128)
  • Ladders come as 3 instead of two when crafting
  • Vines are scalable if you push into a block while nest to them
  • Dispensers dispensing eggs will spawn the mob
  • Dead bushes can be obtained with shears
  • Torches and Redstone torches can be placed on the top of Glass.
  • Mob Eggs are now stackable
  • When crafting Slabs, you now get 6 instead of 3.
  • Villagers have children which sprint
  • New world format: 'Anvil'
  • Lava has sounds
  • Villagers repopulate a village depending on house availability

Have fun!
