1.7 Upgrade

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
Both vanilla servers will be upgraded to 1.7 as soon as a suitable Bukkit build is available.

Whats new in Vanilla?

- CFUK has a new server, Vanilla Classic.

Vanilla Classic isn't exactly moved though, the current Vanilla server will be moved to a new location with it's map and data preserved. This to make way for the relaunch of the new Vanilla Refresh server.

Vanilla Refresh is:
- A fresh new world with larger biomes
- Reconfiguration from ground-up of the servers plugins, and documented features!
- Full X-Ray protection
- CFUK 2.0 dev release plugin
- Faster performance, less clutter.
- Single world with Nether and End (removal of water-world 1.0 and winter-world 1.0)
- A gradually expanding world which will expand 2,000 blocks every month, starting with 3,000!
- An in-game poll every 9 months to determine whether the map is fit for purpose.
- A possible change in plugins and additional features

Questions from the community:

Will we be able to earn badges on the likes of FTB and other servers?
Yes! Most badges will be earned from in-game

When the server becomes more popular again will the teamspeak server be brought back even if it is just a free, smaller capacity one?
Teamspeak has rarely been used, and if demand for it comes, it will be back again!

If you have questions, please post them in the comments, as I (Broonie) no longer actively partake in forum discussion anymore.

Map Corrupted: FTBU

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
Due some form of the lovely information panels being used again, the FTBU map is currently fully corrupted and is currently down.

I'm looking to restore from a backup shortly.

Update: Vending Machines

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
CFUK Vending Machines will be disabled in the next update. Though many of you will be asking:

What are CFUK vending machines?

Unluckily, CFUK vending machines rarely worked due to bulky code. They dispensed items for a gold cost.

Will they return one day? Maybe, if the demand is there.

Feature: Badges

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
One of the upcoming features of CFUK 2.0 is.. badges!

"But we had already had badges!"

Indeed, we did. However even though the old badges feature was launched, it never took off. Some users -already- do have badges, but down to recent events the added administration was a bad decision in being able to keep up with. Sorry!

This new badge solution improves over the original, and works along the same lines as Minecrafts achievements feature, except, it's tailored to CFUK!

"But what will happen to my old badges?!

You'll get to keep them, don't worry. Although they may be converted at some point to the new system, however they will still retain their original value!

Will it go down the pan like the last one?

No! It won't, actually it's never been easier than before. Wherever you can get a badge of not is up to you! It's fully automated!

So how can I get them?

They'll "officially" be released once or after 1.7 is out, whether a preview release it out before 1.7's release is unknown. As badges are announced clues how to get them are released here: [clickable link]

Some badges will stay secret forever though.


Any other questions? Post them in the comments for them to be answered next time1

Annoucement: CFUK Profiles 2.0

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
Within the coming days and weeks, CFUK will take the massive upgrade to it's profile systems.

The current profile system, originating in 2010, has had updates and upgrades tacked on over time, growing into a mature simple profile system.

If the fekkit server is still deemed inactive by the time of the release of 1.7, the server will close.

The map will be available for download upon closure
