Hey everyone, it's been a while since I've posted an update on here, so here's a little something regarding 1.18!
As you probably know, Mojang are releasing the update on Tuesday 30th November, and as usual, we won't be updating the network instantly. This is down to a few reasons:
- Mojang normally release a few stability updates (1.18.1, 1.18.2 etc), so we'll wait until those are out before we work on the update
- Due to Mojang updating Java to Java 17 in 1.18, we'll have to update our server software to support this
- We also need to wait for Purpur (the software we use to run Mistral) to update to 1.18, as well as all the plugins we use
- We want to add more content to Mistral Network, so we'll use the time before we're on 1.18 to work on this.
However, from Tuesday (hopefully), you'll be able to connect to Mistral Network using the latest update thanks to the plugin ViaVersion, which will allow you to play on the 1.17.1 server.
We also want to know what you want to see on Mistral Network, if you have any suggestions, post them in the suggestions section of the website, or post them as a reply to this post.
Finally, I will be livestreaming working on the update over on my Twitch channel so you can send any feedback and ideas in the chat during the streams, as well as getting to see a little behind-the-scenes process for Mistral!
We're excited to see how 1.18 changes Mistral Network and look forward to welcoming you with the latest update again!
