Action Required: Consolidating Maps

Kolgrath's Map on Towncraft

Was I supposed to take a left at Albuquerque?

After receiving feedback and deliberating over the best use of Towncraft’s resources, I’ve come to the decision that we are going to consolidate down to 3 main maps: Default world, Nether, and The End.

We are going to discontinue the use of the Private Survival, PvP World, The Recent Vanilla Map, and Old Towncraft.

Fret not! We’re not just going to throw your hard work away. If you have properties on these maps that you truly wish to save, we can copy them over to the main map for you. But you have to do some leg work for us.

We need to know the X, Y, Z coordinates and what map your property is on that you want copied, and the X,Y, and Z coordinates of where you want your property to be copied to.  You must also mark the approximate boundaries of your property with PINK WOOL so we know where to copy.

You can comment with that information here, contact an OP, or if none are online you can /mail send T0RRENZ  (that’s a ZERO not a letter o) with all of the coordinates. It will be taken care of and you will be mailed back when it’s done.

Note: To prevent item duplication we will be destroying the original building once the copy is complete and correct.

Deadline for doing this will be Next Saturday March 30th 2013 at 12:00AM (Midnight) EDT (-4:00 GMT)

Now the big question you have: Why??

As you know we’ve been growing by leaps and bounds and our resources are all over the place. It’s been a logistical nightmare to juggle permissions and inventories across multiple maps when they are under utilized.

For PvP we want to focus more on Arena combat and PvP Games rather than an entire world that is grossly under-utilized.

Both the Vanilla worlds also were vastly under-utilized and it’s time to shut them down.

Last but not least, Old Towncraft was being used by the Mobhunters to a degree, but I’ve noticed that they spend the majority of their time on the main world. There are a couple of towns on there that if the mayors request, we can copy over in their entirety. Mobhunters HQ will be relocated in its complete form as well.

By consolidating to the three main maps we can shift our focus to more games, a better capitol city, as well as bring players closer together.

Many of you have noticed that the only signs of life on the server are on chat, which is going 90 MPH. But you hardly see more than one or two people in person at random.

By putting all of us closer together we can have a tighter nit playing experience as we continue on this awesome path of growth.

So let me close by repeating again: we will copy your properties from these maps to the main map if you ask us to. You will not lose anything as long as you request a copy.

    I want to make it perfectly clear: PvP itself is NOT going away. Only the under-utilized PvP World Map. Warlord stays in place exactly how it is.

    I dont know which map enchanted wood is on. is that the one we’re keeping? I only have two propertys I’m worried about and one is enchanted wood, and the other is on the same map as grondolia. I checked these were two differrent maps by creating a map of the enchanted wood house and then warping to my island. when on the island , the dot that should be on the side of the map on EW wasnt there so i assume they are on two diff maps. which ones need copying or are we moving everything to a completely new map?

      Enchanted Woods is on the main map and is staying. Here’s the quick and dirty cheat sheet to know what’s going away.
      /warp PvP
      /warp Private
      /warp hub (Press Button For Old Towncraft)
      Map connected to lever at Spawn

      Those are the 4 that are being removed.

    This was from 2013. It no longer applies to the current state of affairs on Towncraft.
