overviewer maps are broken

The recent (18July2018) update to Minecraft 1.13 has broken the Survival Server map. There are no immediate plans to update the map generating software (overviewer), as apparently Mojang’s new chunk format is poorly documented and overviewer will require major refactoring to work with the new format.

If a compatible update becomes available, I’ll get it running as soon as possible.

The discussion about the possibility of an update is here, along with information for those who might wish to contribute money or code:



A few of the minecraft servers are still up, but are seeing little use. The web site needed a re-vamp including TLS support (https:) and a more modern content management platform (WordPress).

I’m not too sure where (or when) I’ll go from here.
