It doesn't seem like it. The last update was in 2014.

Despite how it seems, it's still being worked on.

GalianRyu took over the project from Kinniken a while ago, and he's mostly finished porting it over to 1.8. Of course, a ton of things changed between 1.7.10 and 1.8, so this is a long and arduous process.

Trust me, he wants it done just as much as you do, but he also has a busy life he has to juggle as well.

Just be patient, it'll be out before you know it. :)

Wow, this is awesome :geek:
Is there a way to donate him a bit of money?

Sadly, money isn't going to be as useful as what he really needs - time. If only the world could just stop for like, 72 hours, then he'd get it done. He's told me that he's gotten really busy because life's given him a few curveballs. Temporary setbacks, I assure you.

But do we know how long it will still take to finish it? Or does he completely have no time to work on it? :oops:

I wish I had a better answer for you than "It's done when it's done." Trust me, I want Millenaire just as much as you do, but I've had to learn to be patient.

Feel free and stay a while! We've got a few discussions right now that will shape our beloved Millenaire, so if you want a say in how things should go, post!

Posted a reply just to make sure I am subscribed. I would LOVE to see this revived.

Been itching to play Minecraft again but once I hopped in I realized it was Millenaire I missed. It's just not the same without REAL villages.

I may have made a horrible mistake. I managed to install Millenaire for Minecraft 1.7.10.
My daughter no longer recognizes me and I'm pretty sure I used to have a wife here somewhere.

Seems every time I get an itch to play I have to re-learn how to install all over again so for anyone else who ends up here and wants to jump back in here are some simplified instructions:
Download MIllenaire 6.0.0 from here:
http://www.millenaire.org/php/dlpage.ph ... e6.0.0.zip

Download Forge for 1.7.10 from here:
http://adfoc.us/serve/sitelinks/?id=271 ... er-win.exe

Run Forge Installer.
You should now have a Forge profile set to 1.7.10 auto-created in the Minecraft launcher.

Go here:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft
Create a Mods folder if one does not exist.
Copy the 'put in mods folder' content from Millenaire installer to the Mods folder.

Launch Minecraft using the Forge profile.
You should see Mods in the title screen, and should get a prompt to press V to find villages when game is loaded.

Say goodbye to your friends, family and job and then enjoy!

I hate to be "that guy" but do you have any idea as to the chances of this mod being updated to 1.10 or 1.11?

Yes, we have an idea!
And the chance is not zero; work is being done, plans are made and code is being written.
First step is 1.8.9 since that is where most of the rewriting has to be done.

And then there was silence ... :(
(the kind of silence that Patrick Rothfuss writes about)
What will come first his third book or a update to Millenaire?

Honestly though, I would kill for at least an update on how close he is...particularly on how he's doing with the Hindu redesigns!
"Now does he feel
His secret murders sticking on his hands...
Those he commands move only in command,
Nothing in love. Now does he feel his title
Hang loose about him, like a giant’s robe
Upon a dwarfish thief."

Any status? This'd be a great new years gift!

Just some information on the status or maybe some sort of percentage that would allow us to estimate the amount of time this would take.

Galian has been rather tight-lipped, even with me. I'll do what I can to get an update out of him, though. :D

Hmmm. I agree, that does not seem promising. I would interpret that as, no appreciable progress has been made since October but Galian doesn't want to disappoint anyone by saying so.

Mainly, for him, it's a combination of busy times and the threat of burn out. It's hard (if not impossible) to stay focused on a project 100%, especially when life throws you a few curve balls.

Does he need to pass on the project? Nothing against Galian, but its been about a year since Kin handed it over. If life is throwing curve balls, that's totally understandable. We can find someone with more time on their hands.

You have to have faith in Galian. He has a ton of plans and would probably hate himself forever if he didn't implement them.

It will happen in time.

After checking this forum almost every day for the last few years I'm close to calling it a day.
I'v tried to think positive about the future and was very happy when Galian joined the effort.
But there has been no actual news, no visual progress and as far as I can tell Galian hasn't even logged in to this forum for 4 months.
I'm still hoping but I still think it would have been better with a small team of developers working together. It is a huge mod and was developed and expanded over several years.

Millenaire fan forever,
MoonCutter

He was online in discord and Zoythrus said in discord:"Galian speaks!
I spent a few hours with him today, and he says that he needed a small break from mod development to refresh, but is interested in jumping back into it.
He says that burn out is hard on him, and he'll be trying to get into a rhythm of bouncing between projects to keep that from happening."

Short answer: Yes, see above post.

Long(er) answer: Yes, the mod is still in active development. Galian is taking another short break, and I have been working on some small things and a very large thing. We have been making pretty good progress.

Thanks.
My daughter loves Minecraft and recently "found" my previous Millenaire world. She loved the towns and such and we had a great time while I told her all about the villagers that used to live there and why the buildings looked so funny. She's 4.
If there is a server component I would love to setup a game. My wife and a friend of ours used to play together and getting the little one into it would be fantastic.
We are happy to hear that it's bringing you closer to your family. We're trying our hardest to get a working product out by Christmas. We can't guarantee a server, nor can we guarantee full functionality, but we can guarantee that it will be 1.8 compatible, and that we'll make Millenaire better than it has ever been. :D

Thank you for your support!

You're not a dev, but you took the words out of my mouth! Except for the part about full functionality; it will be fully functional. xD

Okay, that's bizzare, I wrote that, but it showed up as travishead. These moderator controls are still new to me. :P

EDIT: I just realized that I accidentally hit "Edit" instead of "Quote" on that post, so I overwrote his comment. Thankfully, the text is in quotes, so it all works out. Oops! Sorry, travishead!

Yeah, I was just re-reading the last few posts again in checking for an update and that confused the heck out of me.
".....I don't recall replying to myself...."

Is there a plan for the upgrade to ever include server support? I understand functioning single-player 1.8 is the initial goal, and 1.9>1.10>1.11 etc. after that. But will servers even be possible to one day be supported, or is that even on the dream-goals list?

Yes, servers are planned.
