Hello there felow Craftymyners, I think because 1.16 is such a big update, Craftymynes should restart. I also think we've 'played up' this world and a restart would blow new life into the server.
This is a debate that gets brought up with every major update, so I will reiterate what I have heard and said in the past. It really sucks to lose your progress and I understand that's why most people are hesitant or against a reset. My best advice to that is to remember to always take screenshots and pictures of your base for memory's sake. Because there's no way to know if your base will get raided or griefed tomorrow, next week, or not at all. We take that risk on this server and most long standing players have come to accept that understanding. The same goes for server resets. We may not like them all the time, but it's how it goes.
I am all for a reset for a few reasons:
I encourage other long standing players to give their opinions on this. Those with the most will also have the most to give up, and I'd love to hear what you have to think on this.
Anytime there is a huge, major update to the game, a map reset is always best to ensure proper data integrity and avoid glitches & errors in gameplay, all the while making sure all new feature are fully available & accessible to the players. Therefore, a map reset is usually best in these circumstances. While it's always sad to let things go, it's fun to move forward with the new maps, new friends we'll meet that come online, and all new features to see & experience! This upcoming update is perhaps the largest yet. It should be a very enjoyable experience for us all.
Be sure to take lots of pictures for posterity! :D
I think a server reset would be nice. I have several large projects I would lose, but I haven't wanted to start anything new knowing 1.16 was around the corner. This will give me a chance to build bigger and better than ever, not that I can finish the projects I start already. I'm looking forward to it!
