    Hey everyone!

    Exciting news - I'm posting to let everyone know that a map reset will be happening soon. I'm sure you are all well aware that Minecraft will be updating to 1.12 in the coming future (currently on pre-release 5). My goal is to have the server ready for resetting before that version is released. As far as I'm aware there isn't a set release date so if the server is ready before then, I'll reset anyway and update to 1.12 later on.

    Now for those of you who haven't been around for a server reset before or if you just want to know what the term "reset" means, I'll outline it below.

    Things that will get reset:
    • The server map will be generated with a new seed and be completely new (you can download the old one, don't worry)
    • McMMO, money, items, and homes are reset.
    • Tier Ranks will be set to half of their original value (If you were Tier Z you will be Tier M, Tier Y -> Tier L, etc.)
    Things that don't get reset:
    • McMMO credits
    • Ranks (Iron, Gold, Sponsor, etc.)
    • Pokemon Cards (you'll be able to save and transfer these)
    • Your love for the server (I hope)
    Things that will be reworked in the next update:
    • Tiers and their perks (these change every reset)
    • Mob Hunting
    • Quests
    • Towns
    I've decided to allow you to transfer one chest per player with any items that you wish. Below you will find a list of items that are not allowed to be transferred. If you bring them to the transfer area, they will be removed from your inventory automatically. Tools/cosmetics/anything else is good to go.

    Items not tranferring:
    • Diamond, Iron, Gold, Coal, Redstone, Emerald, Lapis (ores, blocks, ingots)
    • Pistons (VoteCrates)
    • Beacons, Nether Stars, Wither Skulls
    • Shulker Boxes (all colours)
    Pokemon Cards
    Pokemon cards are being transferred separately from items/cosmetics so do not transfer them in your chest or you will waste space for other items!

    Where do I transfer my items?
    • /warp transfer
    • Place one chest on a wood block and put your items in the chest
    • Place a sign on your chest with just your username on it
    • Make sure your chest and sign are protected with /lock
    Item Exceptions
    • People who received items for their contributions to the 2015 Christmas Charity Drive will be able to redeem a one time kit of them once again.
    • People with store ranks will get their armor kits once the map has reset.
    I don't have an exact date for the reset but we will do our best to get it done as fast as possible! Feel free to ask questions!

    Thanks everyone!

    After discussing Tier Ranks resetting, someone pointed out to me that having all the work for ranks disappear would be difficult. I've edited the post above to reflect how Tiers will now be handled, instead of being completely wiped for everyone.

    So absolutely no items? I heard that you could take one chest of things before with previous resets :/ I was really hoping that we could this time.. I have items that I absolutely do not want to loose..

    So what about all of the items and collectables that we have acquired like the ornaments from xmas, IH banners, Gear from legendary crates, etc?

    Oh and the question I ask every reset: Will our WG regions be re-allocated on the new map?

    ....In other words all of the random stuff we grabbed by donating to the server.

    Some items you will be able to take over with you, outlined in discs post you'll be able to take Pokemon cards regardless, items such as a sword you made and enchanted or blocks you've collected, those you won't be able to take with you. Collectible items (the items from the monthly crates if I'm not mistaken and I'll let disc clarify, you should be able to take those with you to the next map.

    I'm out of the loop. Haven't played since like January. Pokemon cards?!

    How do these work and is there a way to transfer all of my belongings ever into these so i have something when it restarts? I'm thinking of getting back into Minecraft since I heard of this restart.

    Get them from voting, store, trading with other players. All originals from the first generation are available with something special coming with the reset. ;)

    How will we be able to keep our collectibles from the monthly crates? Will there be a place to put them? Please elaborate cause I have never saved stuff from a reset before, and am a bit confused on the process. I have always just started fresh, but if I can keep some of the vote crate stuff I would like to this time around.

    I am really looking forward to building new stuff! This is going to be fun!

    I also got a bunch of collectables from a departing player, as well. Keep those as well?

    Also, guys, let's approach this as an opportunity to start fresh. Go with a cool idea that you want to pursue! Try monkeying around with redstone! Draw a giant wang on the livemap!

    You get the idea.

The only items that will banned from from being transferred will be beacons, nether stars, coal, diamonds, iron, gold, emerald, redstone, and their block and ore equivalents. Tools/cosmetics/anything else is good to go. I'll have a post showing how this will work by Monday evening.

    One chest or double chest? Just for clarification purposes. ;)

    Also how does the exchange actually go? Who does it? An admin/mod personally drops by and transfers it or what? Because if so... You guys gonna be mighty busy with all these members...

    One of the main reasons why we don't usually do transfers of items.

    There will be an area created in spawn in the next day or so that will allow players to place one single chest (not double) to be transferred. Once the map resets, all items will be gone aside from the items in those chests. The items can then be retrieved by each player as they are /locked for security.

    Thank you Disc and team for all your hard work! I am really looking forward to this reset, and am glad that some of my not so pretty builds will be thrown to the wind. ;) I will miss my island home, but I am already planning on how I will recreate it better than before. Thanks again for all your hard work, it is appreciated!

    I've updated the original post regarding the transfer of items as well as the inclusion of another feature, towns! More on that to come.

    We're working as hard as we can to get it out as fast as possible. There's still much to do so I don't have a set date but I think less than two weeks.

    I've updated the original post to show the items that cannot be transferred.

    Are Shulker Boxes out right banned or can they be used to help transfer items over then burned afterwards? I have to ask because without them with a single chest I will not be able to take all my monthly collectables and pokemon cards.

    Shulker boxes are not to be transferred at all. If you enter the spawn with items in them, they will get removed from your inventory automatically.

    There is a separate way to transfer Pokemon cards so don't store those in your chest. Choose your favourites and transfer them. There will be more monthly cosmetics coming this map. :)

    You planning on looking at Recurrent Complex for at least Farmworld, now that it can be run on only server-side for vanilla servers? (Might want to tweak the settings, though. Be nice to stumble on a temple maze in the jungle and explore it for fun.)

    I don't think that mod is made for Spigot. There's a difference between a "mod" and a "plugin". :(
