Hey guys,

As most of you know we have suffered for quite a few issues in the last couple of months raging from annoying lag to full server crashes. Also the server has already been running for quite a while now without any resets limiting some of the newer game features.

Brainstorming with some of the mods I came up with the idea of having a fresh start and I would really like to have your input!

Migration path will be as follows:

  • Per 24th of December:
  • Setting up a new server with a new and more challanging map.
  • Change from vanilla jar to spigot jar. Technically we'll no longer be a vanilla server but this offers a huge performance boost and we'll stay away from any plugins that impact gameplay.
  • Since we need a new spawn area built, the first 2 weeks everyone who likes can help building in creative mode (to prevent griefers the server will be whitelist only so you will need to apply beforehand). This period will last from christmas till the 2nd week of January.
  • After this all the builders will have their inventory reset
  • Per 7th of January:
  • Players who like can migrate their old inventory over fromt he old to the new server
  • Old server will be replaced (I'll probably keep it running for a while in read only mode)

What do you guys think? All these points are up for debate and other suggestions are welcome of course!

My suggestions,

I think it's a good idea that the server will be reset.
But I would not do the part that a player can keep his inventory, so everybody  can start from scratch.
Maybe you can make the old server map downloadable so if people like they can keep their builds.
 
Also I would make another forum post for the new spawn town. like in which biome  it will be, Witch buildings there gone be needed( Like woot there bee e tp tower, ore e hors vender, ore e place to go to the  end or the nether),…  .
And also a want to help to build the new spawn town.

Making the map downloadable is no problem of course (altough currently its a 22G map :-))

With regards the spawn, everyone can help build ofc, redstone secret are more than welcome! exact spawn type and locations are TBD. I currently have a map setup on mc.purevanilla.eu:25566 with come custom terain options to make it a bit more interesting but again, everything is still open in this regard

I would really like an inventory carry over. I have so many valubles and I would not be enticed to play as much if they all got deleted. Ah no my base.

Hey.. I have an Idea, and i would like to share it.. 

I was thinking on doing a PVP Arena near my base, but since is going to be reset, i thought why not do it then near spawn? 

Do Contests, to keep things interessting, with prices and so on, and if you would like, I would manage it if you'd like :)

Also, those, would not be normal pvp with your best armor.. I was thinking on doing something diferent like:

1.Week  Only Wooden Sword (armor like the player likes)

2.Week  Only Bow and arrow..

and so on... enchantments would be allowed and so on, but with specific items :) And it would be fun to see to player fight against eachother with wooden swords and so.. 

The Arena idea that i have, inclueds parcour, slimeblocks, so if you jump down, you have this trampolin effect, and so on.. I would take care of it, and build it. but ofc i need a yes from you ^^ 

 

Thank you

BTW; i cant get in the server, it says the server is outdated? :S

Just updated so you should be able to play again with 1.11.1 :-).

 

Also I like the PVP arena idea. The only challanging bit is how do you get people to participate in PVP... One idea I had was having a arena with a randomly spawned prize in the middle. 30 minutes before the prize spawns there will be a server wide annoucement  so people can start moving towards the arena. Once the prize spawns people can fight over it :-)

Ofc the prize should be valuable enough to be worth while so a book of mending, elytra etc but thats something we can figure out at a later stage

I love the arena idea, maybe we could make the arena in a way that you could also have piggy races and such!
