    Early as can humanely possible is the best guess, I'd recommend checking the first post and the last post, as soon as a date can be released I'm sure it will be!

    About how long will the transfer area stick around after the reset? Because I'm going to be gone starting this Saturday and away from my computer for about a week-ish.

    It will be around for about a month, then it will be removed.

    Disc it appears that there are no more wooden spaces for people to place a chest on, will this effect transfer of items at all? meaning if someone placed a chest with their name on a non wooden block? Just curious. It seems that all the extraneous building has taken up some spots as well.

    Update on the current status of the reset.

    I've been working hard at getting everything ready and updating to 1.12. Below you will find a list of random things I have done or I'm working on:

    - 1.12 brought some unexpected changes with how plugins work and some have not been updated/need to be replaced in the future.
    - The Mob Slaying feature will be delayed by about two weeks as I want to make sure it's perfect before releasing.
    - Towny is ready to go, permissions on what you can/cannot do to control your towns will be tweaked after resetting.
    - Storage of your player data is being moved to a different system.
    - Survival will be broken up into two parts in terms of storage but will feel the same. Spawn, the build world, nether, end, and farm are going to be the only worlds on one side. The PvP arena, events, Instances, Dungeons, and Slaying will all be moved to a new server to make for better performance in the most actively used worlds (building worlds).
    - There is an issue with Pokemon cards on 1.12. I'm deciding how I'm going to tackle this problem so when the server resets, cards may not be available to withdraw from /cosmetics and any lost cards will be replaced.
    - Hoppers are going to be heavily nerfed this map. They are such a problem when it comes to lag and any changes I've done in the past have made only a small impact in improving the server performance. By nerfing them at the beginning of a map, farms will not be breaking in the way that they would if I tweaked them halfway through the map. The worst case of hoppers causing lag I saw last map was having a chest room in the middle of a 100 block radius which had farms of all different sorts carrying items from hopper to hopper and then poorly sorting them into chests. I counted all of them and they were using 2000+ hoppers within those borders which is completely unnecessary.
    - Outrageous/lag causing redstone clocks will be automatically disabled this map. Make your circuits as optimized as possible to avoid this issue.
    - I'm trying a different way of handling mob caps. I will make it more lenient at first and see how it goes, tweaking the settings as I see fit.
    - Tiers have been changed to numerical, with a max Tier of 25 instead of 26. Permissions of tiers have been changed slightly and will be shown in-game with the Tiers help command as well as on the forums thread detailing Tier perks.
    - Donors will be able to run their kit command to receive their rank's cosmetic armor kit once. This won't include all the previous ranks, just the one you're currently at.
    - I've been pre-generating the new map for the last two days. It's currently at 90% complete and will have a border of 12.5k x 12.5k.

    Once I'm completely finished wrapping up for the reset, I will take the server offline for a day, make all the changes I need to make, and then release the server. I apologize for how long the reset has taken but I've been busy with work and real life things these past weeks. These have caused the time I've had to work on this reset to be smaller and I underestimated the amount of work this reset was going to be. I typically announce resets much later in the work process but people kept asking and it came to the point where people wouldn't be playing because the idea was still "up in the air". Ideally I would have announced it a week ago based on my current timeline of work. Regardless, I want to thank everyone for their patience and for the amazing creativity that has been displayed at /warp transfer. I have had quite a few laughs and I think a project centered around a community build would be cool to do in the future.

    Hey Disc? Since you are Pre-generating the map, could we request some custom real estate? I could really use a majestically sweeping Bay. :) LoL

    haha, I had a pretty large setup, but I believe Disc's referring to MTDeath's base. It has an insane amount of hoppers and chests. Things where they go from bedrock to build limit... yeah

    I'm going to find your bay and turn it into a desert for me to live in.

    I just got a new job so I won't be able to play except on the weekends. Yay me though, right?! Haven't been able to find a job since 2004 and now on a whim I try this flier and boom, they love me there. So that's my real reason I haven't been on. Lol

    Anyways I'm on unpaid leave due to health issues so I actually can be on more now. They don't want me back until I am completely fixed but eagerly await my return. I also am eagerly awaiting the new map so I can get started on all these projects I have in mind. Who wants to help me with my town I'm gonna call Arendelle? Going to need a lot of quartz.

    I'm not so good at building, but I could help you out with gathering stuff etc.

    Sooooo..., i absolutely don't want to pressure Disc with the reset but~ ,is there already aapproximate date for the reset ? Right now i am checking the forum every day for news~ since playing and building something that will be gone in a few days feels pointless.

    Same I just can't wait to find a nice spot and set up a base. Hopefully, it gets reset within the next few days

    I can't give an exact reset time (simply because I am unsure myself), however Disc is currently updating essentials, making permission changes, etc., which is why survival is currently not accessible. The hub, however, is open, and people are dinking around there if you'd like to join in on the dinkin'!

    See you all in 1.12! :D
