Updated to 1.16!

It’s finally here! And after giving it a few days to make sure no one ran into weird issues, we’ve installed the update ourselves. All those new blocks… good thing we reserved space in the storage system. :smiley:

Get ready for an interesting livestream on Tuesday. I’ll have the archive up on my YouTube channel if you don’t have the opportunity to watch live.

Just a reminder, we’re still running a “vanilla” server in the sense that we’re using the JAR from Mojang. We are using a few datapacks, crafting tweaks, and resources from Vanilla Tweaks to round off a few edges.

Updated Datapacks, Crafting Tweaks, and Textures

Speaking of which, I went to the Vanilla Tweaks website and grabbed updated versions of almost all the datapacks, crafting tweaks, and resource packs that we use from them.

Here’s the links if you want to play along with our current server setup:

I’ve updated the Vanilla Tweaks link on the Season 01 page. As noted before, we’re still using the Player Graves datapack that VooDooBeard built instead of the Vanilla Tweaks one due to some issues in the current version. We’ll look at going back when it’s been updated. I’ve also added the Death Book/Message from VooDooBeard as well, since one of the features we’ve been missing from the old Graves datapack was the message in chat with the location you died at.

We customized the Wandering Trader to use our heads instead of the Hermit heads.

We added the Coordinates HUD datapack to the server. Everyone is now on board with getting coordinates and not blocking most of the screen with debug text.

I’m also using a few extra textures that’s not a part of the main CoffeeCraft Texture Pack. While trying to stick to the original goal of keeping as close to “vanilla” as possible, these scratch a few itches that bug me personally, but not the other server members. If you want to see what I’m choosing to add, you can see most of “AnonJr’s Extra Textures” here: https://vanillatweaks.net/share#gql07Y

I’ve got a few extra Datapacks that I run in my creative testing world, mostly so I can check and assess various bits. They’re not really appropriate to run on the server as they don’t help/enhance the survival experience. For the curious, you can find “AnonJr’s Creative Extras” here: https://vanillatweaks.net/share#1xZp5s

No OptiFine for a bit…

Some of us were running the 1.15.2 betas of OptiFine, but sadly there’s no 1.16 (beta or otherwise) just yet.
