Suppose it'll give me a chance to make my wolf army..
Any idea about when I'll be able to access the servers?
And does anyone know how to make cookies?
So many questions...

Server will be back up as soon as the mod coders have the chance to redo their code so its in line with the new 1.4 code. Until then there's not much you can do but feck around in single player and enjoy the new features

So if you're rolling back, how far back will that be?

Did a load of tunnelling and mining today so would hate to lose that!

Wolf Update 1

Managed to tame two wolves (140 and 142).
Sadly 140 passed away in combat this morning, leaving 142 as pack leader he is buried in a golden grave .
Tamed 254123 and working on converting an abandoned project into wolves HQ.
I frickin love this update

Makes 8, each 1 heals half a heart.

Chests wouldn't be locked and there'd be no safe zones. The place would be in havoc from looting and creepers.

Best kept offline for a while.
