i have a suggestion if you admins are thinking of doing so. rather than having a full reset like a few months ago we generate a new 1.7 world with new biomes etc but allow player to transfer items/money to the new map and keep the old map active like before the recent update. With just donating another $20 i would not be happy if i loose all my money/ items again
I totally agree with Matty with this thing… Resetting the map is obligatory at least for the survival server in order to bring the new biomes into it. But since there has been many donators and the economy has started to grow throughout the server I would think that at least bringing the money to the new map would be convenient.
chances are, what will happen, is instead of making a new map which is a major pain in the ass, we will select biomes that are not being used or have very little use, and regenerating them with a new biome type.
Actually- the whole biome generation engine has been rewritten for 1.7, We definetly need a new map, but I honestly do not think previous map’s transferr’s were a disaster, that’s an exaggeration. Transferring the community’s work is well worth the time and effort that it takes…
Build transferrs, yes please!
I have to disagree. Its a lot of work for those who have world edit. I didn’t do much of it last time, but I did enough to get sick of it. When a map resets it lets people start on new things rather than having the old stuff, not feeling like working on it, but not wanting to start again as they’ve already done stuff. That’s how it for me anyway. We see a lot more ideas appearing with a map reset too. Most of the build transfers just sit there looking nice without much purpose.
I think you allowed people take what they wanted from the older server, it would be fine. No building transfers, but people can take their items, money, ect. If they want to take down their 1.6.2 building to rebuild it in 1.7 go right ahead…but I think w.e. for such a new map wouldn’t be worth it.
I agree, shouldn’t the community be involved in this as well? I’m not saying the staff don’t do as much, but the majority of the people building and putting work into the server would be The trusted / Member / Donators.
