JDRGaming Minecraft server

Minecraft 1.14.2

Another Minecraft update got past me without my noticing. The RSS feed on minecraft.net stopped working a while ago. Presumably they just want people to visit the web site daily, or hourly, or just keep a tab open to that page all the time, hitting the refresh button every few minutes. Or maybe wade through hundreds of irrelevant Tweets or Discord posts every day. Or something. Who has time for that?

Anyway, Minecraft 1.14.2 was released on May 27. The new version is mostly about bug fixes.

The JDRGaming Minecraft server is running version 1.14.2 as of June 7.

Minecraft 1.14.1 released

Minecraft 1.14.1 is a minor update that addresses a few bugs and makes some performance improvements.

Many of the bugs fixed in the new version are related to changes made in the previous version and affect villages and villagers.

The JDRGaming Minecraft server is now running version 1.14.1.

Minecraft 1.14 released

Minecraft 1.14 was released on April 22. The JDRGaming Minecraft server is now running version 1.14.

Minecraft 1.14 is also referred to as the 'Village & Pillage' update, because many of the changes (and there are a ton of them) involve villages and villagers. There's a long list of changes on the release announcement post.

Minecraft 1.13 released

The latest version of Minecraft (Java edition) adds a bunch of water-related features: new creatures, blocks, and items that all appear underwater.

The JDRGaming Minecraft server has been updated, and is now running version 1.13.

IP address changed

There's bad news, and good news. The bad news is that the IP address for all JDRGaming servers has changed again. As of 2018May12, the IP address is 184.71.170.154.

The good news is that we're finally on a business Internet plan, which has several advantages. The IP address is static, which means it's much less likely to change randomly. And the available bandwidth has increased from 25 Mbps download / 2.5 Mbps upload to 75 Mbps download / 15 Mbps upload. The increase in upload bandwidth in particular should mean less lag and connection problems when there are a lot of players.

JDRGaming site and game servers: planned outage Aug 30

Due to circumstances beyond my control, all of the JDRGaming game servers will be unavailable on August 30.

A planned local power outage is expected to last from 8:30am to 6:30 pm on August 30. The outage will also affect this web site (jdrgaming.com).

I will post updates on the @JDRGamingStatus Twitter account as events unfold tomorrow.

UPDATE: As of 12:50pm PST, power has been restored and the server is back up. All game servers are back online.
