Version Support - Have Your Say
We're planning on making some changes to the versions of Minecraft we support, and want to hear your feedback!
To preface this article, we are not removing support for non-RenderDragon versions at this time.
After reviewing community feedback last year, we decided to continue to support 1.18 versions of Minecraft for as long as we could, to allow the small minority of players that use 1.18 for valid reasons to continue to have a good experience playing on The Hive.
Several new versions of the game have been released since our decision in October, and we are now having to support over 20 different versions of the game. Naturally, having to support so many versions has led to a significant amount of additional work for our developers.
The vast majority of our players use the most recent version of Minecraft. Our data also shows that the small minority who are still using version 1.18 are primarily playing with version 1.18.12.
To ensure that we can continue supporting older clients to our high standards, we're wanting to reduce the range of client versions we support. This allows us to plan around a known set of clients, making development and testing easier. To achieve this, we plan to discontinue support for all versions except the following:
- 1.18.10, 1.18.11, and 1.18.12
- 1.19.70, 1.19.71, and 1.19.72 (latest release)
If you play The Hive with a version of Minecraft that is not listed above, please let us know which version you are using and why. This will help us take your feedback into consideration. To leave your feedback, please leave a comment on this post.
