It seems to be becoming a more frequent issue and that is people who are not mods are replying to report threads, ban appeals, ect and saying things such as “It will be fixed asap” or “You will be unbanned soon” or “The spammer will be punished” or “Please wait for unban” or “Show your proof and you will be unbanned” ect. Please if you are not a mod DO NOT reply with answers like this. It is misleading and confuses players. Doing so will result in punishment.
Not everything is in there, just the new blocks, no water fortress or new mobs. I hope you guys enjoy it.
UPDATE: Downgraded back to 1.7 due to people not liking it.
Sorry, but 1.8 and future updates may take longer than expected. Mojang and bukkit are having a legal battle.
