When will Ravenkraft Update to 1.4.2?

When the Bukkit team releases a stable build and our critical plugins are tested against it.  This will likely be the beta build, which could come as soon as Saturday, or as late as next week. Our critical plugins are Factions, Hawkeye and Bartersigns.  If you want to play a 1.4 world, might i suggest you could try The Apples of Discordia, our brand new anarchy server.  Be warned though, there are no rules on an anarchy server. 

How do I downgrade back to 1.3.2 to play on Ravenkraft?

If you accidentally upgraded or wanted to switch back and forth, use these files:


You will need to rename the file to minecraft.jar in order for it to work.

Windows Instructions:
1. Press the windows key and the 'R' key together to bring up the Run Prompt. (This is also the search bar on the Windows 7 start menu)
2. Type %appdata% into the run prompt and press enter. This will open the Application Data or equivalent folder on your computer.
3. Open the '.minecraft' folder. Then open the 'bin' folder.
4. Find 'minecraft.jar'. It may be labeled as just 'minecraft' , but described as a JAR file.
5. Delete (or backup/rename) 'minecraft.jar'.
6. Place the downloaded file into this folder, rename it to minecraft.jar and replace the one that was just moved/deleted.

Mac Instructions:
1. Open
2. Click “Go” in menubar
3. Then choose “Go to folder…”
4. Type in “~/Library/Application Support/Minecraft/bin” (without quotes)
5. Replace and rename your minecraft.jar with the one provided above.

If something goes wrong and you hose your installation, just delete the entire bin folder and relaunch minecraft. It will automatically update it to 1.2.5

The Samhain Crossover - A Halloween Event

The upcoming Halloween event will be Ravenkraft's first complete adventure map.  Players will be presented with four different paths to follow from spawn to different areas.  The world will be online on Sunday.  If craftbukkit and Multiverse are updated, you will be able to access it through the regular Ravenkraft server.  If it is not updated, the server address for the event will be  These specifics will be announced on the Twitter feed located on the home page of the website

The Apples of Discordia - anarchy server

For those wanting to play on a 1.4.2 server in the mean time, this server has been put online.  I am testing a server that will be getting used in future adventure instancing development with this world.  Its a fun thing to check out if you would like to check out PVP.

Please upvote this server to help me with my testing. Here is the posted description:

A freshly opened, 60 slot, anarchy survival server. Stand your ground, destroy your neighbors, stalk the spawn a kill all that oppose you!

Theft, griefing, and all types out mayhem are permitted. There are no rules aside the one: no cheating. The difficulty is set to hard. Be sure to secure some food and base to avoid death from exposure and starvation.

The Apples of Discord is a tribute to Discordianism and the late Robert Anton Wilson. Fnord!
