Elme has decided that we finally are migrating back to our old map :smile.gif:
however,this will take some time to complete,there are some things that needs to be done before we open the doors to the public.
We need to re protect all the areas of significance and that is a tedious process.
We are hoping to start our work on this sunday,but we dont know how long it will take.
The server may also be whitelisted while we do this to prevent griefing and stealing.
Now,this is all wonderful for some and for other is spells disaster.
I just want to let you know that there is no debating this,we are going back and thats final :wink.gif:
I doubt that Elme will upload this map so please,dont nag :smile.gif:
There is also the rumors about Beta 1.3 coming soon,but hopefully Bukkit will be faster in updating their plugins then hMod.
So,for now,enjoy your time on this map and be prepared to migrate to the real world :smile.gif:
Any questions on this can be asked here or on a PM to me or Elme.
Alright happy campers,its official,we have finally returned to the old map :biggrin.gif:
It went faster then i had thought and the process of getting there was slightly less complicated then i first had thought.
Elme has made some changes to the system and there are some new features that not everyone is familiar with.
I will try to explain it as good as i can here.
The first thing you might notice when you join in is that you still might find your self in the "Crazy World".
The Crazy World is the map we have been playing the past two months after Beta.
But there are some differences...!
At spawn you will now find a portal that leads to the "Normal World"
There are now 3 portals at spawn in the Normal World.
One leads to the Nether,the second one leads to the Crazy World and the third leads to the Whitelist World
All players are able to travel to both the Nether and to the Crazy World but there are some changes there too.
The portals are the only access points to these worlds and they are also UNSUPPORTED.
Meaning that only the Normal World will be regularly patrolled and maintained by MOD´s and Admins.
All protections has been removed for these worlds except for the global protecting of diamond/steel/gold blocks.
The Whitelist World is exactly what it sounds like.
Its a world where only people on a whitelist have access.
Getting this access is a VERY difficult proses and it takes a lot of skill and maturity to gain it.
The choosing of members on the whitelist is at our discretion and you cant nag,bribe,buy or threaten your way in!
This World is intended to be a Sandbox world where you can create hughe and wonderful creations and not be worried about griefers and thieves.
Consider it an exclusive club for the elite of our server :smile.gif:
On a different note i want to inform about the problems regarding the protections and the issues some of you are having.
As stated above we now have a total of 4 worlds at our disposal,but as this is still a game in early Beta there are some bugs and glitches that needs to be ironed out.
It seems that the protection that we have created on the Normal Map is affecting the other maps too.
Meaning that a protected area in the Normal Map will be projected onto the corresponding area on the other maps.
This is not something we have an easy fix to at the moment,but we hope that Bukkit will present a solution in the near future.
To all the owners of shops and/or houses in the District:
You need send me a PM stating that you want to keep your house,if not it will be removed and given to another player.
You have 2 days from today to reply!
If you already have a shop/house that you cant access,please contact me ingame or in a PM and ill make sure your access is restored.
This only applies to the protection area in the Normal World.
People experiencing similar problems in the Crazy World cannot expect to get the same level of help as we are focusing on the Normal World.
If you have any other questions you can direct them here or to me via PM.
There is no pretty way of saying this,so here it goes:
Our old world has been deleted and a new,fresh one is in the making!
Yeah,i know...You lost this and that,and all that building all in vain etc etc..!
We all lost stuff and,trust me,we all lost wonderful buildings!
Reason is an error in the concerting process.
Basically it failed to convert and it wrote a new map on top of the old one.
At the moment Elme and i are in the works of prepping the map,and yes,there will be a city here too :wink.gif:
And,no,there is no way to recover the old world :/
There will still be portals to nether and whitelist worlds tho :smile.gif:
Consider this a fresh start where everyone starts on the same level :smile.gif:
As always,any questions can be asked here or in a PM to me
