Hello everyone! This is an incredibly important announcement that will emit a strong emotional response from the community. Please take the time to read through the entire post to ensure you don’t miss any details.
We have spent immense time discussing & regarding this decision and truly believe the outcome will benefit the network in the long run. This has occured due to various reasons listed; A fresh start to initiate the new year - adapting to 1.13 To rebalance the economy. Opportunity to allow expansion for new things. We have not reset the world for 1 year, which has resulted in corrupted chunks, the world is currently 100gb which is causing major performance issues. Giving new players fresh areas (such as auto-generated villagers, temples & ocean monuments) to roam, explore, build and mine with the new 1.13 update.
There is many reasons why a reset is needed. The indisputable one is the limitations of Minecraft. After being on the current map for 1 year now, the time has come for a world reset on the Survival World, Our world is getting big and our plugins are stuffed to the brim. We have millions of pieces of data - far more than our plugins (and server) can put up with. The server simply will not be able to handle anymore very soon, as we have found various memory leaks regarding multiple plugins and plugin ‘ghosting’. (An example of this ghosting is the invisible mobs found randomly throughout the world).
But don't fret! This new world will be special, because we want to harness the creativity of our community to make the new world better than the current one. So don’t see this as losing something, see it as a possible blank canvas to start fresh!
Let us all get excited and work on the server together, I ask that you invite your friends as It is very hard on me to keep the server up. As I need to hire staff and help as Exzibit resigned. Thanks to all of his previous work.
Have fun! We don't know what the server will lead to yet but it will be interesting to watch. If you have any suggestions / bugs, please let us know!
