    Hey everybody!

    I'm glad that you guys are becoming involved in the decisions for the future of Peaceful Farms. Through your forum posts and replies, I have seen many good suggestions and plan on implementing them in the next version of the server.

    Here is a screenshot of the results of the poll. While it was close, the decision to have a full reset took the lead by twenty votes. I want to thank everybody for contributing -- I never thought that it would get more than three hundred responses in less than a day. It really shows that you guys care about the future of the server, and because of that, I want to respect the community's opinions and only make changes that they approve of.

    Many are confused on why a full reset would be good for the server, so let me explain. The point of the server is to rank-up and get the most money from farming. It's been a year since the last reset now and the competition has gone down -- players are simply farming the same farms and fighting the same bosses. A fresh start would bring many new features and would get players working to build new bases and farm systems, bringing the server to life. Players will once again be able to show their creativity on a new world with new quests and bosses in a later update. I completely understand that older members do not want to lose their progress, and I am still thinking of ideas to compensate them for all the time they've spent on the server in the past. I plan on releasing a download of the map for those that would like to save their builds and keep building (suggested by @DinoMonkey1001). If you have any other ideas on how to compensate, please create a suggestion post.

    All player data will be reset -- this includes inventories, balances, unpaid ranks, mcMMO stats, claimable blocks, and ender chests. The only things that will remain are donator ranks and points. If you bought something in the old shop, like more claimable blocks, there will be a section on the forums where you will be credited if you provide proof of your purchase. Due to demand, I have decided to move up the reset date to Friday, January 5th at 10am Central time. If you have a question, suggestion, or comment about the reset, you can leave a reply to this announcement.

    Thank you all for your feedback. I can't wait to see what you guys have in store for the new world!

    Yeah, it will probably be a Dropbox or Mediafire link. I plan on releasing it the day of the reset.

    The only issue I could potentially see with this is that allowing people to keep their builds will allow them to keep their farms. People who have higher ranks generally have nicer farms already, if that's brought over they'll be able to progress much faster than the average player who is being reset to nothing. In short, my opinion is that if it's just builds ( such as houses, maybe a castle or so) that would be fine, but a full farm might give an unfair advantage; thus proving a full reset pointless.

    Other than that I am very glad to see the server coming to a concise opinion and that it will be done quicker as well. Will the server be up the same day as the reset or the day after? For compensation, as well as being able to get the player count back up quickly, maybe have a drop party or ranks half priced for the first day (not sure about that second thing, might be a little much [work and compensation that is]). Whatever you end up doing I'm sure it will be great.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    The world will not be on the server, it will be downloadable for those who want to continue playing alone. They will not be able to access their old farms on the server.
    It will be reset Friday morning and it will go live at 10AM central time for players to start on the new world.
    Those are great ideas. I may do a shop sale the first week of the new world, and I may do a drop party if we hit a significant number of players (maybe 50?).

    Thanks for your suggestions! Look forward to seeing you on!

    I have another idea for the world download.

    It would be pretty good if you put EVERY - and I mean
    EVERY - quest item into a chest at coords 0, 0 in the wild world. This would mean that when people download the map, they could look at all the cool items, e.g. lavaforged, kaynine gear. I am personally going to be playing survival, using the map, and I would love it if I had access to all the armour. I am currently missing a kaynine crown and a normal lavaforged helmet, so it would be great if all of the items were available to play with when we download the map ourselves.

    Thank you for reading, and I REALLY hope that you do this!

    Those who plan to download the old world, better take note of the coordinates of your farm and other favorite places. I don\t think the /home command will still work on the download.

    You will be credited the money you've spent with a gift card in the new shop.

    I think you get store credits so you can buy it back.
