The servers have been running 1.10 (now 1.10.2) for a while and with the new map having finished generating last night it seemed like a good time to also go over the server's plans for rolling it out.
Pending any delays with the new spawn, the new map will go live on July 1st to coincide with DF's third rebirthday. However, there'll be a few differences from past map changes.
The largest difference will be a reset of the economy, ranks, & stats. If you purchased digits (when they were available for purchase) you will start out with that amount. If you purchased any ranks, you will start at the highest rank purchased. Prestige will carry over. Any items you wish to move must be in your inventory, backpack, or enderchest at the time of the map change.Towns will have a yet to be determined amount of time to claim a new town center.
Changes being implemented along with the map change:
Compass Jump is now usable via /compassjump or /cj (for those that are able to use the command). I blame WorldEdit, it does its commands in an unfriendly manner. Jumping using a compass works the same.
Last week I had an event poll, and most of you picked Hardcore Skywars as the event you wanted to do! So it will be this month's event! If you're interested and want to sign up, be sure to read the rules as this event will is entirely custom and isn't automatically run by a plugin.
The event will be on June 11th @ 7:00 CDT/8:00 EDT. Signing up will be open until June 11th at 5:00 CDT/6:00 EDT. The time of the event may be subject to change; if I change the time for some reason, it'll be at the top of the thread & in a reply.
One day (or round) consists of approximately 5 minutes of day, and approximately 5 minutes of night.
You will spawn on a platform of all wool colors, dirt, stone, wood, and a different mineral each day.
The unique minerals each platform has per day:
Day 1 will start with the normal blocks on the platform.
