Hey all, by now you may have heard about me considering doing a reset for this new update given that the server is running out of space. Fortunately it seems like I can salvage things by adding a world border and trimming the world down to a certain size to gain back a ton of space. Of course this will mean that anyone beyond the border will be pushed back closer to spawn.

I'm planning on a circular world border with a radius of 100k. Currently there are only 52 players that are further than this distance from spawn. To calculate your distance, you need to compute the square root of your coordinates squared:

distance = sqrt(x*x + z*z)

I'll be reaching out to these specific players later on, but I wanted to give you guys a heads up now on what I'm planning.

I plan on enabling the world border (and pushing any players back closer to spawn) a week from now, Sunday June 9.

Then I'll follow up with the 1.14.2 update shortly thereafter assuming everything goes well and enough space is recovered.

Dissapointing

And commence bitching and whining. Go!

The radius sounds fine. Please consider making the 1.14.2 Wilds a smaller size than the recent ones - a few Wilds at the size of those we had on SS3, or a little bit bigger than that.

Also, will you ever let me read the letter that PoochWang/Lemon sent you about my mod position?

1) 100K is tiny, would trimming to 300K or even 200K give you enough disk space?

2) How much money would it take for you to buy a new hard drive? Maybe we can tag our donations with #30M until we can gather that money

3) I think a reset would be preferable; this would bring SS back to the summer reset schedule, it would be more fair to the far out players, and it would avoid the problem of not having of the new biome types like bamboo forest in the already explored \ generated area near spawn.

100k is good. Thank you server

RIP to those that spent a couple hundred hours on bases. At least Tim and Zep won't be losing much.

Are our bases going to be saved? I am one of the players past 100k. He says he will push us back and it seems that he will save them. I appreciate everything he is doing to try and keep the server and all our work, but if its only going to be 100k I would rather a reset. I like to live the chill life now just running around my parkour course and dying in peace with Drummer. Now that will be ruined by people using Elytras to just find everyone, but hopefully this all turns out ok

Can we get a 1.14 spawn

2019-06-02T23:53:16+00:00

I think 100k is pretty far enough.

I'm sure going to be around for 1.14 and all the new content it has

There are only two players currently past 200K so trimming that would yield almost no recovered space.

It's not about buying a new drive. I rent a dedicated server in a rack somewhere. In order to get a new SSD I'd need to order an entirely new system which will cost much more per month that what I'm currently paying. The SSD I have already is 256GB which is already a good size.

It's only been 6 months, not that much time compared to a year.

Unfortunately no, the point of the world border is to delete all chunks beyond it to gain back some space. Sorry Kyle.

Are the bases just going to be destroyed? or will you world edit them? I heard that as a rumor going around. Also, based off of this, will future SS servers have pre-set world borders?

No plans to world edit and preserve anything. It would be too hard to track down all custom-built stuff in such a vast area beyond the border.

Future servers may indeed have the border. World size grows much more quickly due to Elytra these days, it's not as feasible to just keep upgrading disk space to keep up.

Okay, I understand. When will me get more information about what is going to go down? Just to prepare everything we need to prepare. Like before you do the border can we get a date so we can mine down everything thats of semi-importance and just move it somewhere? before everything is destroyed
