Minecraft 1.9, "Outdated server", and the future of The Sandlot

    As many of you now know, Minecraft 1.9 has been released. Updating single player worlds from 1.8 to 1.9 is as easy as updating Minecraft itself, but servers are a completely different story. The Sandlot relies on dozens of plugins written by dozens of programmers and software developers all over the world, not to mention the server software itself which is written by a team of people.

    The Sandlot cannot just flip a switch and be on 1.9. It will take a long time for the server software to get updated, and even longer for all the plugins we use to get updated. We are still waiting on some of our plugins to support 1.8, let alone 1.9! I expect it will be anywhere from 6 months to a year before The Sandlot can fully implement a 1.9 solution across all our servers and worlds.

    All that being said, if you try to connect and play on The Sandlot and get the error "Outdated server", it means you are trying to connect with Minecraft 1.9. We are only officially supporting version 1.8.9, so you need to use that version to connect and play. To use this version, follow the steps below in your Minecraft launcher.

    There is another way of switching versions.

    First, click Edit Profile.

    Then, click Versions and find the version you want to play on.

    Then, press save and then play.
