The arrow struck the shield with a impactful “thud!”. Steve peeked around the shield’s edge and saw the arrow was wrapped in a note! Steve excitedly pulled it loose to see what it said…

“You’re happy you had that shield, aren’t you?”

And yes, Steve was pretty happy.

Minecraft has been updated to 1.9! It contains a lot of changes. Most remarkably, the combat mechanics have been updated to make fighting more interesting and offer more map-making options.

Here’s a almost complete list of the new and changed features:

•Added shields
•Attacking now has a “cool-down” delay, making it more important to time your attacks
•You can now hold items in both hands (default quick key to swap items is ‘F’)
•Swords have a special sweep attack
•Axes have a special crushing blow attack
•Added the elytra
•New mob: Shulker
•Expanded The End
•Added Chorus plants
•New Purpur blocks
•New End Rod block
•Added dragon head block
•Ender Dragon can be resummoned
•Added beetroot and beetroot soup (from MC:PE)
•Added grass path block
•Added igloos
•Armor protection values have been lowered
•Added tipped arrows
•Added spectral arrows
•Added Frost Walker enchantment and frosted ice block
•Added a whole bunch of new sound effects
•Added sound effect subtitles
•Brewing Stand now requires Blaze Powder to activate
•Added skeleton riders
*We believe we’ve fixed MC-10 and a whole bunch of other issues
●Removed Herobrine ???




Also, some people are having chunk loading issues when starting brand new worlds for 1.9, so keep an eye out for that. I sense a mini patch update will arrive pretty quickly (1.9.1) in regards to this issue.

Well seeing as we still have the server up and running, I was going to reset the current world and start a fresh vanilla world (as the current plugins won't yet be compatible with 1.9) and basically start something going like we had on our old OG Neocodex server. Thoughts?

Would people play more than just a day on it? If not, I'm just going to close it down permanently otherwise.

I'm keen to play some SMP 1.9 goodness with people I enjoy playing MC with. I have a couple of other servers that I frequent, but they won't be updating completely to 1.9 anytime soon due to majority of their mods not working in 1.9 yet.

I'm interested to rejoin a vanilla server! I must confess I was a bit discouraged by all the mods to really delve deep into it (which is just my personal preference ;) ).

Just a quick question. Would you guys like a plugin like this that adds additional achievements to the game? Gives you something more to work towards apart from the generic vanilla achievements.

I don't want to heavily rely on plugins and take away from the overall vanilla experience of 1.9, but this plugin seems to just add that little unobtrusive extra to aim for :D

You should be able to log in with what you had before, however, in saying that, mine wouldn't let me log in until I deleted and re-added the server. Just take note of the IP if you need to and re-add it if you can't connect the first time :)
