Many of you may be wondering what happen when 1.14 releases on the 23rd. The administration team and I have sat quiet on this issue for quite a while. With each snapshot update, we have investigated the issues, bugs, and problems that updating our current map to the new update will cause. Our biggest concern was that with the areas already loaded by our existing map we are essentially preventing new players from experiencing the update in its entirety.
We have debated the issue back and forth concluding that it would be in the best interests of the server and community to reset the world. We also recognize that many players still have unfinished builds or want to gather screenshots/reference their current bases. For this reason, we will be running 1.14 and 1.13 in parallel and eventually will shut down 1.13 once the player base dies down. This decision was tough, however, with the rapidly dwindling storage space caused by the enormous map (Plus the areas already loaded by previous players preventing the new generation of the update), the recent publicity of the seed of our current map and the rampant abuse of bugs that Mojang has not yet implemented bug fixes for. We feel that with this new update our only course going forward is to start with a fresh map.
With little time to prepare we have made a new spawn area up (following feedback based on our current spawn) and reverted to a much simpler spawn. Taking elements from different versions of our spawns and builds that were never implemented.
Here are some of the changes to expect:
- Smaller world size to help combat storage issues (256k, 128k from spawn).
- New spawn combining the elements of the last 4 CraftyMynes spawns.
- New seed and all the features/generation of the 1.14 update.
- Same state of the art teleports and homes system.
- Upgraded lottery with new rewards.
- New race to kill the dragon.
After we double check the stability of 1.14 on the 23rd, 1.13 will move to "myne.fun:25566" and 1.14 will takes its place at "myne.fun". We will be opening our base download option again for the 1.13 map (find details here)
To make this as fair as possible, once we have 1.14 in our hands, we will set a release time.
