With the future release of MC 1.3 it comes to stand the next big important

question.

Should the world be refreshed to a brand new world or left as current and

expanded. So I’ve set a poll with further detail of the 3 options below, so

try read these before voting. Don’t get all giddy going “OMG OMG OMG

BUTTONS!â€

Option 1 – Keep the world:

You can keep all your possessions but a lot of the features from the update

will not start till at least 1000 block away from spawn. So get your

walking boots on!

Option 2 – New World:

You lose everything but start a brand new world with everything in it,

dungeons, pyramids, desert villages and jungle temples. Watch out for those

trip wires!

Option 3 – New World (Large Biomes):

You lose everything and start a new world with everything but the terrain

is bigger, 16 (4x4) times bigger. So those deserts will truly last for

miles!

These do vary in size still like smaller biomes!

We’ve spoken about it before and the implications of each choice but what

do YOU think?

Id rather keep the map, but if theres going to be a new map, id prefer smaller regions. Bigger regions are ofc awesome, but i dont want to walk evrywhere all the time. If theres some fix to that ( like a giant railroad system!) id also go with the big biomes XD

@Pixie

Well the votes so far appear it’s going to be a large map and with Large Biomes in the lead. But it could still change!

Large biomes are not as big as people think. The area is 16x larger being 4x each direction.

Meaning when we now build a village we won’t take up the entire desert!

:idea: These do vary in size still like smaller biomes!

Fixes to this however would be to live in the corner where 3 biomes meet.

As for large railroad systems, by all means you can create railroads that link parts of the world but bare in mind you’ll have to gather all the resources to build said railroad system. (Abandoned mines?)

Ideally group together with a few people and build one to a location you all find useful.

e.g. between cities or areas of good resources.

Lastly. Move away from spawn this time, I fix your house too many times! :wacko:

@JoeShow

Let me guess, new world so many places to see!

Let's not live so close to each other this time, then we can use each others houses as holiday homes.

I expect a pool/beach! :D

I wish to build a proper harbor this time with red stone lights instead of crappy Glowstone haha!

But yeah i agree LZ - But whom will i steal resource from?

So i know the new MC patch has just pre-released, do we have an ETA for this at all? <3

Minecraft update is set for tomorrow, but we will have to wait for the bukkit release after it which hopefully won't be too long.

Currently, No.

Bukkit have posted making people aware they working on the update however due to the size of the update it is unlikely they will be ready for the release date of tomorrow (01/08/12).

I/Dunce will probably make an additional comment on this thread once it’s done. Anyone who’s asking should notice it.

@JoeShow

Sounds like it could be cool. JoeShow the harbor master!

I think I may try live in a normal house like on the ground… *shocked faces*

@Dunceantix

I also propose a sign at spawn! Stating you may build within 300 block of spawn but you will not be legible for rollbacks.

It sounds slightly harsh I admit but it will encourage people spread out a little!

One other thing I’d suggest is to remove mBox (collectable spawners). It’ll make people work a little more for their items and prevent me collecting them all!

@Wigleg

I may come have a play later as a goodbye to the old world (also working). However I won’t be around all night. I need to try catch up on some sleep, this cough is killing me.

p.s. I really struggle to do small posts xD

Also; creeper protection OFF please?

It was never on the server to begin with, but we a lot of people ask for it so it was added.

@Dunceantix

I’ll do some more work on it tonight! We may have got slightly distracted by the custom map we’ve been building! (Will be released soon).

I’d say it’s possible to finish it in time for 1.3. I’ve wired some doors up, just a few more to do and to finalise the external design., I’ll stick a temp server up again later if you’re around.

@Haden

Creeper protection off could be an interesting one, I’d agree though. Though I think some people have become a little too dependent on it.

Yes i'll be around tonight, just give me a shout when you are free.

Also, i'm not used to creeper heal, I never, ever, ever lure you towards a creeper and watch him blow up next to you! :lol:

You're not a radio DJ so you should not have any "radio team" privileges.

Quick update to everyone.

Due to the protection which is used on the Server we have been unable to upgrade the server yet.

Once a stable release is available it will be upgraded. The image is already to go live (thanks to Dunce).

I've been keeping an eye on this also.

Development builds have not been recommended as some basic plugins are having issues with the newest Dev builds.

Just and update guys!

Minecraft 1.2.5 is still available at:

server1.epiclan.co.uk

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
