Made in Germany with love (and beer)
- Tested Minecraft Versions:
Bungee plugin to connect different Minecraft client versions to different servers when he joins your BungeeCord network. You can even specify the exact protocol version you want to send to a different server as long as your BungeeCord supports those versions.
It also contains a simple load balancer (add multiple server names to a version separated by a comma like in the config example below) which connects players to the server with the lowest player count and a really basic support to connect Forge clients to a different server. (Only works with 1.8+ Forge clients)
This plugin will not allow old versions to connect to your network if the BungeeCord proxy does not support the old version! You have to use some other plugin to do that.
Versions with string representation:
It will fallback to the version with the closest protocol number below the actuall client's protocol. You can however set the protocol version directly if you want or propose additions to the ProtocolVersion enum.Config:
Please note: It is not necessary for a version to have a string constant! You can just add the protocol number in the config. (For Example 340 for 1.12.2, 335 for 1.12 or 316 for 1.11.1)
- MINECRAFT_1_11 (Protocol version 315)
- MINECRAFT_1_10 (Protocol version 210)
- MINECRAFT_1_9_4 (Protocol version 110)
- MINECRAFT_1_9 (Protocol version 107)
- MINECRAFT_1_8 (Protocol version 47)
- MINECRAFT_1_7_6 (Protocol version 5)
- MINECRAFT_1_7_2 (Protocol version 4)
This config defined two different groups of servers, one for lobbies and one for survival servers.Code (YAML):debug: false
# Minumum amount of players that need to be online on one server to start balancing
# new players to the other server (e.g. between lobby_1_8_a & lobby_1_8_b)
'34': lobby_prot_34 # Lobby for specific protocol version
MINECRAFT_1_8: lobby_1_8_a, lobby_1_8_b # Lobbies for 1.8
MINECRAFT_1_9: lobby_1_9 # Lobby for 1.9
UNKNOWN: well_we_dont_know # Lobby for an Unknown version (not a fallback if no config for version was found!)
MINECRAFT_8: forge_lobby_1_8_a, forge_lobby_1_8_b
MINECRAFT_8: forge_suvival_1_8_a, forge_suvival_1_8_b
Once a player that uses 1.8 connects to your network that has the server lobby_1_9 as the default one configured he will automatically be redirected to connect to the lobby_1_8_a server, but only if the server lobby_1_8_b doesn't have less players online. (By adjusting the start-balancing setting you could only start the balancing once 10 players for example are on the server lobby_1_8_a)
When the player then tries to switch to the server survival_1_10 (e.g. via a portal that only supports defining a single target server) he will be connected to the server suvival_1_8 instead as it matches his version.

Development builds can be found on the Minebench.de Jenkins as usual: http://ci.minebench.de/job/VersionConnector/Donations:
Programming is time intensive and I would really appreciate your support!
So if you can afford it or make commercially use of this plugin feel free to buy me a beer.
