Version Support Update
We are making some changes to the versions of Minecraft that we support.
To preface this article, we are not removing support for non-RenderDragon versions at this time.
To ensure that we can continue supporting older clients to our high standards, we're reducing the range of client versions that we support. This allows us to plan around a known set of clients, making development and testing easier.
Going forward, The Hive will now only support the following versions of Minecraft:
- 1.18.10, 1.18.11, and 1.18.12
- 1.19.50, and 1.19.51
- 1.19.80, 1.19.81, and 1.19.83
- 1.20.0, and 1.20.1
- 1.20.10, and 1.20.12
If you are not using one of the versions of Minecraft listed above, you will need to update your game to be able to join The Hive.
These changes will not have any impact on gameplay.
How long will The Hive support 1.18 versions of Minecraft?
Whilst we have no plans to drop support for the remaining 1.18 versions of Minecraft in the immediate future, it is unfeasible to retain support for these versions indefinitely.
There are multiple factors that may lead us, or force us, to drop support for older versions of Minecraft:
- A newer version of the game contains functionality required by updates to our games or other experiences
- Microsoft disables functionality in older versions of the game, such as the Marketplace or other services required to authenticate with our server
We will be sure to give plenty of notice should we need to drop support for 1.18.
