Greetings, Glowstone development team.
There is a great Minecraft community which wants to create unique servers and content for their players. But recently it faced the issue of “Cauldron” ending support, so no further updates from 1.7.10 to latest MC versions are possible.
There are a lot of Craftbukkit plugins, which couldn’t work better than they can already. But using mods is the core feature of some servers. Sponge is a good platform for it, but the implementation and overall features are really poor.
The reason for it, is because nowadays it is hard to find any information on this issue. It took me at least 3 days to come up with using “Pore” plugin for Sponge (which supports bukkit plugins) and it is no longer updated as well (latest version was for 1.8.9). Buggy as hell, doesn’t support PEX plugin, worked well with WorldGuard and WorldEdit.
Now there are two ways of server development: either one uses Craftbukkit/Spigot/whatever to run a server with plugins and no mods, or one uses Forge/Sponge to run a server with mods and a very raw new API without Craftbukkit plugins.
“Googling” for half of a month, I found Glowstone++ at Github.
There is a line which says: Forge support is being worked on.
Really looking forward to use Glowstone++ as a core for the servers, because it looks much more organized and has a lot of flexible settings, comparing to Vanilla/Craftbukkit/Sponge.
The final questions is: Are there any updates on this issue and any ETA?
Thank you for your attention.
