Sorry for taking so long to send this out. Twas a late day at work and I just finally have some free time.
As I am sure most of you are aware of by now A16.3 has finally arrived. I think TFP may have hit the nail on the head this time. https://tinyurl.com/yd69c6je
You can see TFP is calling for a complete wipe as usual and unfortunately I have to agree "as the fixes necessitated core changes to the chunk code." And I'm like 95% sure that they owe that one to me as I pointed out the issue like a week ago lol.
Conclusively we will be doing a full wipe. I am sorry for this but there has been to much corrupted data to allow any of it to transfer over without detrimental risk to the server. This will include both the region and player files.
To cushion the blow we are going to create a kit that will be available to any one joining the server for the first week. The kit will appear in your belt when you first join the server and will act like the hit to open does. We have not fully decided what will be in it but we will try and think of something fair and not to over powered.
We once again have a bunch of work to do, so any changes to the server will not be made tonight. If you would like to play you can go to your game properties and revert to the previous 16.2 stable build.
The plan at the moment is to shoot for Saturday evening launch into 16.3. I am going to power through as much as I can, at the detriment of getting no sleep and missing work lol ;p
I will post either late tomorrow night or have Jessi post an update first thing Saturday morning on the status of our progress and make sure we keep you up to date, as always.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible i.e. when Jessi is able as I will be busy converting mods :).
