Vanilla Reset


2 September, 2016, MineCats Vanilla will be reset.  This will be a full reset of all but staff ranks.  The World, the Nether, and The End, as well as player's inventories will be reset.  This is per orders of The Owner, cindy_k.


Originally, only the outer most "ring" of the overworld was to be regenerated, with the Nether and The End having already been regenerated.  However, due to the age of Vanilla's map, and the increase of new items, mobs, biomes, etc it has been decided that the entire world will be replaced, with exception of the spawn area.  This will be re-introduced to the new map.


This will be a completely new world, with a new seed.  The seed will be chosen at random.  This is to prevent the re-mining of and re-steaking of the same areas.  All player files will be removed, and all players will be started at spawn with nothing.  Tokens, though not used on Vanilla, will not be reset, as the Shop Tokens are not part of Vanilla (Just in case anyone asks)


This reset will take place sometime between 12:01 am and 11:59 pm September 2nd.


There is nothing to prepare for, there is nothing the players should, or can do to for the server reset within the game.  However, if the players who read this would please pass this information on to those who may not have had a chance to read this, that would be wonderful!


Thank You for your concerns, comments, and questions.  You may vent in reply to this thread, if you so feel the need. 


 


Bidding for the world files starts at $10,000.00 US dollars, payable in advance.  (I mean, if you really want the files and you have $10k hanging around, we'll trade) :D/emoticons/default_biggrin.png" srcset="/emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" title=":D" width="20">

  • I know exactly how I feel. (I'll probably have my account deleted to use the word I'd like.)


    So VERY annoyed.


    I can't even see my builds one last time.

    Thx man. No one else seems to give a monkey's what happens on vanilla when people aren't looking. 


  • Okay so i didnt want to reply at first but then i thought nah why not, you're accusing me of things you do also so i might aswell defend myself.


     


    Let start with your "unfair" ban - If the staff believe you have done something to warrant a ban then so be it, appeal if you wish but dont act like you did nothing wrong.

    Moving on to, Starting from day one you've treated me and my friend poorly. Multiple times you and your friends have shouted abuse at us for speaking to eachother in chat because what? you want your vanilla chat clean and not active? That makes no sense AT ALL, you should be pleased the vanilla server is getting more activity right? The multiple times me and my friends have been chatting about generic topics like for example the fun facts conversation the other day but you will STILL find some flaw and argument in what we are talking about, you dont take the adult approach and ignore us. 


    Furthermore, You tell us to shut up in chat (whilst evading the filter with those bubble text swears) and to take it to /msg ...I dont think you understand how threeway conversations work, Why should we go through the effort of private messaging eachother in a threeway just so you can have a clean text only purely about minecraft topics. Do you not see how that is ridiculous!? 


    Another point, Lets take a simple example of you being unreasonable. 


     


    I simply ask my friend for a cooking tip, a simple and basic question on how to thicken my sauce for my dinner, As i added too much milk and it was runny af. She replied a suggestion as to what i should do to fix it with a one word simple answer; Flour. SOMEHOW you -Shielded- Found this so aggrivating, it shocked you to your very core. Without thinking logically you shouted at us with such anger behind your keyboard, SHUT THE F UP you said, and if i remember correctlly..Didnt Leif end up muting or kicking you so you could "cool down" Now, think this through logically. Youre __ years old getting angry at a 20 year old and a 22 year old talking about cooking tips, it annoyed you SO MUCH that you got punished for getting so annoyed and told to CALM DOWN. 


     


    You both act like butter wouldn't melt and that me and peni are the worst players in history and we shouldnt be allowed to walk this earth or enter YOUR precious server. Yet i dont see your name on the ownership and i dont see a staff tag above your name, We've spoken about this in the past to Leif and we have made a concious effort to calm down what you find annoying and personally i think we have been doing a good job in that aspect of our gameplay. 


     


    And the whole "Nobody seems to give a monkeys what happens on vanilla when people arent looking" 


    Im sure staff wouldnt be too happy about the comments you make to us during the day either so, you're just as bad as we are. 


     


     


    Buck up kiddo, its minecraft. How about we all just ignore eachother then you wont have to be salty <3


     


    We Joined this server to have a good fun time together after not playing together for a few months, For once let us be in peace. 


  • Well that was a mistake to leave this thread unlocked I see.

    I've hidden your antagonizing posts.


    I'm also going to make this very clear:

    I WILL be on Vanilla and I WILL be banning people for failure to follow the rules. 



    Additionally, the world was over 35GBs in size. it was rendered to 120000^2 blocks.  Trimming the world down to 75000 blocks and regenerating would have only exasperated the issues, additionally, due to where most of the larger builds were, trimming the world would have deleted them.  It was because of the size of storage and the fact the "valued" builds would be removed any ways that the entire server is being reset.  I do not know if we will ever do anything with the old world map, however, I have no deleted those files. 


    I have personally picked out a wonderful new seed that will give everyone plenty of opportunity to start fresh and build new awesome things.  As some have pointed out, many of the long term players will be upset, however as I would like to point out, many of those long time players no longer have time or want to play on MineCats Vanilla any longer, and may not know for months, if ever, that the world was reset.  Those who remain have been abusing the builds and stashes left behind by those that came before, giving them an unfair advantage over new players.


    Furthermore, as stated originally, the purpose of the world regeneration was to build the chunks with the newer metadata, such as polarbears can spawn naturally. We have started this world with a radius of 37500 blocks (75000 blocks wide, squared).  After 1.11 is released, due to the potential for new chunk metadata, we will be expanding the world out more.  This will be done regardless if 1.11 has new map data or not, and we are holding back simply so the map does not become eternally bloated by continual map data updates.  We will continue to expand the world out as new version of the world generator are released to add new features to the chunk data. This means if future versions do not change the world map / chunks, the world will not be expanded. This should prevent the need to reset the world for another 18-24 months, or longer.


    There will still be a ring around the spawn area that will be regenerated from time to time in order to give new players access to low lever raw materials at the start of their game.  I have no decided how far out this will be, however, like always, going well beyond the beacon wall will be suit all players.

    is it 11:59pm eastern time? No. I have over 6.5 hours yet.  Will i be done before then, probably - but not if I have to keep stopping to answer questions for users who don't know how to read.

    If this didn't make it perfectly clear, I DID NOT DELETE THE OLD WORLD FILES.



    Your incessant and continual nagging of progress and information for something that you don't need to have that data for astounds and irritates.  This is why you are banned from /msg on MineCats Minecraft.


    Have I made things perfectly clear for you now. Shieldedrunner?

    IK i just read it then i was trying to find you in the server to say its ok i guess...


     


  • CAN i get unbanned from msg NOW..!


     


     


  • no. tomorrow. IF you're nice.


  • ShieldedRunner, If he has banned you from messaging, there is a perfectly good reason, now, repect him, the server rules, and stop arguing with him unless you want this to escalate to a server ban.

    and you have no idea what you are on about


     


  • Well, I have a partial idea of what happend, you where apparently agruing with him, you were banned from messaging, so, I suggest you stay quiet so you will be un-banned quicker. Or, if you rather learn the hard way, that could work to.


  • Look what i mean is this is this between /index.php?/profile/2119-aesix/&do=hovercard" data-mentionid="2119" href="<___base_url___>/index.php?/profile/2119-aesix/" rel="">@AeSix and I, I have personally never seen you on vanilla before, and you're only on this form post for attention.

  • Am I? I'm just trying to not get you banned, Im helping out, is that against the rules?


  • Well... who ever banned me... nope idek care anymore hope you're happy. <img class=" src="src" />/emoticons/default_angry.png" title=":angry:" />


     


  • Well, I was trying to get you to just deal with your punishment and take it before it escalates anymore, but, apparently you didn't want to listen to me, you can't blame me. It was your choice. So next time, I suggest you shut up, and take your punishment as it is.
