MutinyCraft now is updated to 1.6.2.
Minecraft (not MutinyCraft) will be updating to 1.6 on July 1st and with this update comes a bunch of additions to the game-play. The most notable new additions are horses and stained clay blocks. With this update there is also an all new minecraft launcher that everyone will be required to get. The good news about this launcher is that you can upgrade and downgrade freely with the click of a button. That means you can play 1.6 and then downgrade back to 1.5.2 or the other way around.
MutinyCraft will not be updating to 1.6 until some of the plugins we use are updated to work with the new version. The wait could be anywhere from a few days to more than a week. As soon as all of the plugins are updated and everything is stable we will update. Until then you can freely switch back and forth between 1.5.2 and 1.6 so you wont miss out on any game time on MutinyCraft.
There are some questions about how horses and horse armor will work on multiplayer. Horses may be too hard to find and if that is the case adjustments will be made to the server to ensure that horses are not impossible to find. Horse armor is not craftable at the moment and only obtainable from certain chests that generate randomly. Those will be few and far between and that will also be taken into consideration. We want everyone to at least get the opportunity to use the new features on MutinyCraft and we will make sure it isn't impossible to do that.
I encourage everyone to checkout the 1.6 update either when it comes out on July 1st or by trying the pre-release that I will link to you below.
