[1.7.10] FE 1.4.0-beta8

This should be the final beta release, if all goes well we should have stable builds by the end of next week.

Changes:

  • Rewritten¬†worldborder (in preparation for MC 1.8 update)
  • Filler has been rewritten and moved to commands module as /pregen
  • Other fixes and improvements

To reiterate once again, WorldEdit build 3370 is included with FE and will be extracted on first server start. You do not need to download WorldEdit unless you wish to use a newer version. Also, Forge 1258 or newer is required.

If you wish to use Fastcraft with FE, please get the 1.22 test builds from the end of player’s thread.

Download ServerComplete Client

For reference, this is Jenkins build 782.

[1.7.10] FE 1.4.0-beta7

Plenty of new stuff!

Notable changes in this beta release:

  • New playerlogger, fully rewritten. Should be faster, and offer more features.
  • Plots/economy is now mostly implemented.
  • The ASM compatibility issues between Mixin and other mods have been resolved (with possibly the exception of Fastcraft*, add -Dfastcraft.asm.permissive to your launch args or wait for a new Fastcraft release from Player).
  • General fixes and improvements. Once again, too many to list.

To reiterate once again, WorldEdit build 3370 is included with FE and will be extracted on first server start. You do not need to download WorldEdit unless you wish to use a newer version. Also, Forge 1258 or newer is required.

Download: ServerComplete Client

* Some players are reporting that Fastcraft is working for them, however I am not able to get the fix to work. You’ll have to try things out for yourself.

[1.7.10] FE 1.4.0-beta6

In preparation for the new PlayerLogger that’s coming in beta7, we will be releasing a stopgap release beta6 in the meantime.

Changes in this release:

  • ASM patcher re-written using Sponge’s Mixin library. This is the reason why there was such a large gap between beta5 and beta6. This change can potentially introduce incompatibilities with some mods (Mariculture, AppleCore as of the time I write this), due to Mixin requiring a lot of special hacks and potentially breaking other less well-written ASM transformers. As such, if you notice any incompatibilities with other mods, please let us know on github.
  • If you install the FE-core on client, you can also have portals render horizontally. This is just an aesthetic change, and as the FE core binary is rather large (and will be getting larger), modpackers are recommended not to pack the FE-core in their modpacks, just the FE-client.
  • The inbuilt IRC bridge is now compatible with twitch streaming
  • General fixes and improvements (it’s been almost 80 builds since the last beta release, too many things to name)

To reiterate once again, WorldEdit build 3360 is included with FE and will be extracted on first server start. You do not need to download WorldEdit unless you wish to use a newer version. Also, Forge 1258 or newer is required.

[1.7.10] FE 1.4.0-beta5

Nothing much, this release is sort of an exceptional one to fix some gamebreaking bugs.

Client didn’t change, don’t forget you need Forge 1258 and above.
