ECC 2.0

This post is designed to give people some insight into what is happening in the near future. We are postponing our official detailed post due to the fact there is a lot of information we need released, and we need to be fully sure about everything stated prior to making a news post about it.

HOWEVER, it’s no secret that major changes are coming, and with the several random Discord voice discussions we’ve had, much of that information is now public. Problem is, with no official source, and with my absolute recommendation that you only trust things you hear, or read, from me directly, I feel like this post has to be made. I don't leak things to friends, people I know, nothing. Trust no one and no source other than our website or myself personally on Discord. And please, always verify anything you hear with our news section via the website. With this, I feel like a pre-insight post, with absolute official points, is warranted today.

Without further ado, and without boring introductory statements, let’s just get to the things that are set in stone and that we all care about. Apologies for the straight forward facts below, but why bore you with word play, let’s just get to it.

Minecraft 1.16.x -> 1.17, is a total mess. To put it into perspective, 1.12.x -> 1.13.x was a hassle, an enormous hassle that made us reset. In fact, this “hassle” just gave us over 3 days of downtime on archive, and that's to just remotely get it functioning properly on 1.16.5. Please, try to grasp that. Several years later, we still had days of issues, with the best developers in the industry, getting our old map on 1.16.5. Now however, we don’t just face what we did before, we face a nearly impossible task when it comes to new content from Mojang. Beautiful new terrains. Massively increased world limits. A complete world file code change. To be totally frank. We can go on forever, on our 1.13 generated world, and keep a small...

Hello EcoCityCraft!

Today marks our official 10 year anniversary. 10 years ago today, my brother michaelwm and I decided to take our basement (literally) server online. If you are interested in some back story please give our Tebex blog post a read! (https://blog.tebex.io/featured-webstore-ecocitycraft/) We took the server online with the following advertisements on the popular minecraft forums website. (https://tinyurl.com/3mkb6k97 & https://tinyurl.com/decymh3x) Do forgive my grammar, I had pretty much no history in posting threads online, especially since English has always been my second language.

After the above threads went online, players started joining, and to our surprise sticking around on this little hobby server we had going. A very special shoutout and memory to welikeike22 who has been here from the very start, as is evident from the advertisement threads above. We always laughed that he was already at spawn when we first launched the server, and to be honest, I don’t think I remember it any differently! <3 We love you man!

With the server now online, and players joining, it all unfolded from there. Days passed, weeks passed, months passed, and… no where along the way did I ever imagine that in the distant year of 2021, Minecraft, let alone our little server would still be online. We saw dozens if not hundreds of servers come and go, year after year along the way, and yet EcoCityCraft, our little community, which varied in size continuously throughout the years, is still here. I’ve always said, for a decade now, I’ll never leave this place behind as long as just 1 person is online enjoying it. And with a decade behind us, I hope people believe it. <3

I now want to get to the most important part of this 10 year anniversary. A shout-out to what is the most important thing on EcoCityCraft. You. Our Community....
