I wanted to talk to you guys about the server and its future and where we are currently are at, as you well know this server is hosted by a friend of mine but we are severely restricted on what we can do.
There is also there is the ongoing invisible lag that seems to keep reappearing and the random crashes that keep happening, earlier this week another friend of mine who I have done some past development work with is starting a new project.
I expressed an interest in what he is currently doing after having a bit of a talk to him we both decided that we merge ideas players and all things alike onto this new server, this will be more beneficial for all parties.
This also means that all players will be able to benefit from the new features and a much more stable server.
But this does however mean in one way the end of Heretics-Craft and our run as an independent server, It has been a fun two years doing this but unfortunately myself Jordan and the rest of the staff have taken this server as far we possibly can on the resources that we currently have access to.
I know that some of you will be curious as to how this is going to work and some of you may be angry or upset but, if you are unsure of anything you can speak to either myself or Jordan and any questions that you have we will try to answer.
At the moment there is a lot of things still in the air and we are trying to get everything sorted, I have provided below a few answers to what I think will be the most commonly asked questions, again if there is anything I haven’t covered then please contact us.
But this is a mammoth task and required a lot of planning and organizing this won’t be an immediate change and will probably take a few weeks for everything to get sorted.
I think currently we are looking at a date of completion for the first week of October this year, but I do know that the other staff are wanting to get this moving as soon as possible.
All current staff will be issued there positions in the new server this is going to work as follows, there will be a server manager for the Survival and PvP worlds this is going to be Jordan he will handle all of the day to day running.
Then there will be global admins and global mods who will kind of keep the peace over the server as a collective, generally you probably won’t see them as often as they will be managing other servers on the network.
And at the top will be a team of system admins which will be myself, Ryan (Wild1145) (Owner of SN) and Camzie99.
All of the current worlds will be reset to mark the start of the new server and also this allows new chunks to form for the 1.8 update, however all existing ranks will be transferred and anyone who was a big builder will be reset to a member.
There might be a slight change in the way that the rules work, to start with we will more than likely have a set of global rules and then have separate rules for each server this is still to be confirmed.
There will be a new two tier donation system and will be separate for each world; you will be able to choose as existing donators, which world you would like to have your donator rank transferred to.
If you would like to upgrade this then you can do so by choosing to upgrade on the new website which will be coming shortly.
A message will be going out shortly to all of the donators regarding this and will require the you’re earliest response, if users fail to decide where they would like this to be transferred to then you will not have your rank when the switch happens and will then need to contact Jordan or myself to fix it.
