As you may have noticed, we have been updating/migrating our realms during the summer to run on our custom 1.13 server software. This has allowed for large amounts of players to play on 1.13 lag-free (something that no other big network currently does). We are happy of the results so far. We have come a long way from the poor 1.13 performance and spawner system which were causing <10 TPS and frequent unstacking/disappearing of spawners. Now that both Water and Village have been optimized and are running on our own custom software, we are moving to the last phase of the migration: Kingdom & Space. Kingdom and space will merge and reset on August 17th 12PM EST.
What does this mean for Kingdom?
For Kingdom, we will be resetting the realm and updating it to latest software in addition to other changes as well. Some of these changes are:
New race system (Samurai, Ronin, & Artisans)
Re-implementation of Jobs
Shop tweaks and economy balancing
New spawner system
New entity stacking system
New dropped entity stacking system
Lots of optimizations
Added the Kingdom Manager GUI (/k)
Claiming land will now cost money. Each chunk claimed will go up by $500 each time. The base price is $1,000
Max claims set at 1,000 (un-bypassable)
Addition of the /k claims command (will list all claims your Kingdom has)
Addition of the /k bank command (deposit/withdraw money directly from your Kingdom. To withdraw, you have to be Moderator rank or above)
New leaderboard system (fixed heads not updating)
"Resetting the realm" means that you will lose inventories, balances, quest points, player vaults (/pv), statistics, and builds. Your Kingdom information will be erased, you will have re-create/re-join a Kingdom on Season 2.
**Please keep in mind that we intend for Season 2 of Kingdom to be longer than Season 1 which has been a 4-month season.
What does this mean for Space?
After exploring all options for both realms, we have decided that closing Space and merging it with Kingdom will be best for our survival community. Space is currently riddled with bugs which is a result of it being the very first realm to experiment with our custom software. We believe that closing space down and merging it with Kingdom will re-unite the survival community and make for less room for bugs to go unnoticed as we will now be focusing our efforts on one single realm.
What does this mean for Space players that had ranks?
If you had a space rank, it will be moved over to Kingdom! Here is how the rank migration will work (it has been based off of perks not pricing!):
