PirateCraft now compatible between minecraft clients 1.9 – 1.10

June 14, 2016 11:29 pm Published by in , . Leave a Comment


I have updated PirateCraft to allow Minecraft clients from 1.9/1.9.1/1.9.2/1.9.3/1.9.4 all the way up to 1.10 to connect, we are still running the server on 1.9.4, so none of the 1.10 features will work server-side just yet!

The reason for trialing this protocol hack to allow 1.10 clients to connect to our older server software, is due to the 1.10 server software & plugins breaking when Mojang changed a ton of back-end code in 1.10 (Was it really worth it!?). It will take a long time for developers to catch up and update all their server software and plugins. So no polar bears just yet! Don’t worry, we will move to 1.10 once all of our plugins are updated and working with the 1.10 server software. The reason I chose to allow this protocol hack, is to allow players that have auto updated their clients to connect to PirateCraft that do not know how/why to downgrade, some features will work client side, like auto jumping (although this seems sketchy, is it working as it should?).

This compatibility plugin has not been tested, so you will be testing it live, if there are any game breaking issues we will have to weigh up the pros and cons of keeping it. We are still using all our old server software and plugins, we have just added this new plugin to allow compatibility, it shouldn’t break anything existing, but please report if it has.


  • Added protocol hack to allow client 1.9 – 1.10 to work on PirateCraft
  • Added /worth to check an estimated value of item in your hand, it will check the quantity of this item from your inventory, this is a guide to give a better understanding to new players setting up shops for the price items should be roughly sold at on PirateCraft.
    This is not a definitive list; all staff can change/add item(s) worth at any time, you can make suggestions to this forum thread, after you have read it.
  • Chairs now allow banners to be put either side to be sat on. (Via suggestion of Browe_)
  • New donations have the ability to lookup their donation date (Via suggestion from otitoes)
    • This is a work in progress, and not working as I intend it just yet, when a new donation happens now, the buy date will be sent to the server and saved in a custom database for that user, that user can then look up their purchase date in-game using one of these 3 commands:
      This was all planned to tie into /rank, but I couldn’t solve the issue of it constantly flagging up spam. Only donations onwards from June 25th 2016 will have data saved.

Happy Pirating!
