Well, its finally here. Just released is our very own custom launcher. You can find the links to download it below.
From this point on, WesterosCraft is now a Forge-based server. So, this means to access the server you need to either download our custom launcher or install Forge and the appropriate mods to your Minecraft, however the launcher is infinitely more user-friendly and easy to use. You can run it separately from your other Minecraft launcher, so it won't interfere. It automatically comes preloaded with the latest resource pack, the latest mods, and it looks neat too! Also, it will automatically update whenever we want it to, which is super important to ensure everyone has a similar experience and consistent look when viewing our server.
Some people may ask why have a custom launcher at all. There are several reasons, the most important being is it paves the road for the future of our server as an MMORPG it will eventually be. All the features we wish to include and start working on require something a bit more substantial than a vanilla Bukkit Minecraft server. Our first proof of this is WesterosBlocks, a mod that allows builders to, instead of using mod magic, place any CTM block. It also allows us to add many custom blocks to enrich the server; wagon wheels, lanterns, and cages just to name a few. With the launcher, it will be easy to push out these coming updates to all users with the click of an 'update' button.
This is all very exciting for all of us. But, especially here at the beginning of the custom launcher, please above all BE PATIENT! There may be bugs and there may be issues or kinks we need to work out. Please use the link below to report any issues with the custom launcher

Any constructive feedback is welcome....please direct all that here
Again, thank you everyone for all the support and help you've given this project over the years. Looking forward to the next year. Oh, and be sure if you see mikeprimm to give him a huge round of applause as without his hard work and know-how, this custom launcher would probably not have come together as efficiently and successfully as it did.
