1.5 Minecraft Update

Today Minecraft has been updated to 1.5, This means Waiting for bukkit to update and fixing all plugins. So i advice not to update any client it might be a few days till we can update! Sorry!

When all the updates are complete we're looking at adding more suggestions and other stuff. Current towns will be getting a update! We are looking forward to releasing bigger lots for cheaper this means editing current towns and removing any inactive ones!

We're looking for any suggestions not only for more plugins but other ideas like improvements on the rules or remove or add worlds. (PVP WORLD) Maybe add a creative world?

The crafting recipe is 9 Redstone
Stores 9 Redstone
Emits constant redstone signal
Works as pushable redstone power source
Daylight Sensor
The crafting recipe is 3 Wooden Slabs, 3 Nether Quartz and 3 Glass blocks
Outputs a signal with a strength corresponding to the intensity of the sun
Only works with the sun's light (not man made light such as torches)
Rain affects the sensor's output
The crafting recipe is 7 Cobblestone and 1 Redstone
Places items in containers in front of them, if there is no container it will dispense the item without using it
A dispenser 'shoots' items at you, while a dropper 'throws' items at you
Can face all 6 directions, with a different texture when facing up or down
Needs redstone signal to drop items
The crafting recipe is 5 iron ingots and 1 Chest
Places and takes out items in Hoppers, Chests, Furnaces, Minecart with Chests, Minecart with Hoppers, Dispensers, Droppers, and Brewing Stands
Allows for the automation of many processes collecting drops
Powering the Hopper stops it from taking in items and releasing them
Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly - signal length depends on its fullness
1 item will give a signal strength of 1, a third of a stack (21 for items which stack to 64) gives a signal strength of 2
Minecart with Hopper
Crafting recipe is a hopper on top of a minecart
Can only be emptied by passing over a hopper
Can pick up items from containers when it passes over
Minecart with Spawner entity
Only obtainable with world editors

Minecart with TNT
The crafting recipe is 1 TNT and 1 Minecart
Triggered by Activator Rails

Doesn't destroy rails and supporting blocks
Still blows up redstone materials
Redstone Comparator
The crafting recipe is 3 Redstone Torches, 1 Nether Quartz and 3 Stone
It is the same as a repeater, but with 2 inputs
If input A is stronger or equal to input B, it either repeats the signal or outputs the difference between A and B, so this can be used as an easier way make redstone contraptions like Piston Doors
Output is toggleable by right clicking
If input A is weaker than input B, then there is no output
All containers output a redstone signal when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly. The strength of it depends on how full the container is and what disc number is used in a Jukebox
This works with Trapped Chests as well, meaning it can provide two redstone signals with different causes at the same time
Trapped Chest
The crafting recipe is 1 Chest, and 1 Tripwire Hook
Gives out a signal depending on the amount of players looking inside
Large Trapped Chests can be staggered with Large Chests to allow more compact storage
