An update on the current progress of our server systems
Hey all, I thought I should update you on our progress I'm currently making relating to the backend
I got out of college I've been working heavily on getting the backend of the queue completed. The queue will
allow us to set up minigames
on multiple servers and the queue will take care of selecting a server and getting the player to that
server. Though that is not all as it
will handle controlling parties as well as friends so everyone gets in the same server together. My plan is
to have it be able to make sure all
of the players in the party actually get in the server and not kick out a few of the players in your
party due to
someone else joining at the same time.
This is mainly taking awhile because I want to make sure I get it right and have all the features ready to
go from the beginning. I am also the only
developer currently which means I don't have anyone else on hand to work on anything else.
Once everything for the backend is completed I will finish off setting up and updating the Hide and Seek game to use this new system and we will begin adding more minigames. If you have any ideas of minigames you think we should add let us know in our Discord in the #minigames channel. We'd be happy to credit you on an original minigame idea that we add in!
On another note Survival will be not be updated to 1.17 though we may spin up another survival solely for 1.17 until 1.18 (when the new terrian generation comes out) at which point we will wipe the old 1.16 world and 1.17. We will remove all Player data and possibly setup a part of the site to grab your home coordinates if you didn't get them and also put the worlds up for download if you'd like to keep your builds (or even 3D print them!). We are all hopefully you'll stay as we continue to get the server up to a standard before were ready to consider our server fully out. We have some awesome things we want to do with you, the community, in the future and hope you'll be here when it's ready. We know it may seem like our Discord is quite inactive at times but were working hard in the backend getting everything together and polished up for you to enjoy. Also another thing to note we have over 100 members in our discord! We are glad you are all here! Do feel free to join us when we hop in general from time to time!
