"It's that time again!" What does this mean? It means we're ready for another map!
When are we resetting the map? The map will be reset between 10PM (US Eastern) on April 30th and 1AM (US Eastern) on May 1st. It shouldn't take long to do, I'll be sure to post an update once it's done.
What's getting wiped?
- The map
- Alchemy bags
- Ender chests
- UTShop Stock
- Probably anything else not listed as being kept.
What's being kept?
- Claim blocks
What if I bought World Anchor access? You will still have world anchor access after the reset. You'll just have to make some world anchors before you can use them.
How about my rank's rewards? If you have a donator rank, you will get the money from it returned. (Claim Blocks are being kept, so you'll already have those.) If you have a playtime rank, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Why is the map being reset? I'd suggest reading the top of this message. Anyways, it's because we've had the current map since the beginning of the year and it's getting boring. We need something fresh.
What else should we expect with the reset? While there isn't a large update coming per se, I do plan to implement some performance patches for RedPower, IndustrialCraft, and EquivalentExchange. If you find bugs with any of these three mods (or anything really) after the map reset, please report it immediately either on the forums or in the #bug-reports channel on this Discord server.
Will the map be available for download? No promises, but I will try to make it available for download. Once/if it is available, I will share the link on the website and Discord
Some additional information not announced on the website yet:
UTCrates has been released! Users are rewarded with one random crate with every vote! There are 5 different crates, each with 5 possible rewards. Rewards range all the way from some coal to the Legend rank.
JustCall has returned! JustCall was previously a staff member on the server and has returned to help us out with development!
UTShop has been upgraded! UTShop now features instant selling! Currently instant selling is capped to $2,500 per day to help keep inflation from going crazy. (With just 20 people using up their instant sell caps, that adds $50,000 to the economy in a single day!). UTShop also has a full list of commands available with the command /UTShop Help
Staff applications are open! We are currently looking for new staff! We hope to accept around 2-3 new staff members! http://UnknownTekkit.com/apply
The world is growing! We have increased the map border from 10,000 in all directions from 0,0 to 16,000 in all directions from 0,0! That's over 10 times as much room! With this, we're also bringing oceans back! It turns out the issue we were having with them before was due to some buggy code in the random teleport command. The command has since been fixed and works perfectly!
World Anchors are available! Donator ranks Legend, Immortal, and Custom (UTv6 Version) all have access to World Anchors now! In addition to this, you can subscribe for access to 2, 4, or 8 World Anchors in the donation store! With this, you can place the anchors, pick them up, move them around, etc... World Anchors load an area of 3x3 chunks (48x48 blocks) at all times!
Be sure to submit your suggestions for the server either on the forums or on the Discord server in the #Suggestions channel! We look forward to hearing from you!
