Alright everyone, today is the day! I know that a few of you have been playing a bit early, but it is now the official start of the new server. Get on, get playing, and get fun. I mean have fun.
Anyway, do whatever.
As there are no mods for 1.7 yet, a vanilla-ish pack is a ways off. One shall be coming, however. Sometime.
You can check out updates and announcements (like this one!) at the server update blog.
There are some ground rules though:
Don't overly ruin the landscape. Make pretty things, not crappy ones. No griefing. Play nice. Don't dig tunnels to everywhere. Small ones are fine, but not cross-country.
Ok have fun.
