Yep. Unfortunately after a lot of discussion we've agreed that a world reset is in order for Update 50. This wasn't an easy decision to come to, however we all agree that it has to be done.
The current DMU Public world sits at almost 100GB. We only have around 15GB of free storage space left on our server machine... Therefore we decided it would be best to reset the public map and with the new one include a world border. This should prevent the map from growing too large and reduce the need for a reset in the future.
The reset will occur when U50 comes out.
We currently pay $100 a month for our server machine. It would cost even more to add additional storage space to the machine. If you would like to help out in covering the costs of the server any donations are welcomed: https://www.paypal.me/TheSWDTeam
Yes. All dimensions are being reset. Yes this includes the TARDIS Dimension
Not to worry. Staff came to an agreement that players may request one build to be saved.
You can request a build by filling in the following form: https://forms.gle/1VrWsEzGAzm7qtcS9
Please note. Staff make the final decision on whether they deem a build worthy of being saved. Therefore we will not be saving default interiors, small wooden houses etc.
All DMU Store items are re-credited to you upon reset, you'll be able to run /accept-items again and receive them back.
The only other thing which will be reset along with the map is your in game balance and inventory. Everything else (ranks, titles, nicknames etc) will remain.
Post it below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
What will the general world size be? I have a concern that once the full map is discovered, the resources such as steel and Sonic crystals will quickly disappear from caves and similar areas.
That is yet to be decided. The finer details are still being sorted but we will let you know when we know
What are the sorts of items in chests that will make builds deemed unworthy?
You can't have any items in your chests. It's just to save what you've build.
just going to add: if you place items in your chests when we save a build for re-construction those items will NOT be copied into the schematic as only the actually blocks will be copied.
