So it has been a crazy couple of weeks. First we had the huge update to 1.2, and then that triggered the mad dash to get smp1-4 on proper hardware. Now that we are back in full operation we are maxing out max players on all 6 smp servers! That means it is time to launch smp7 smp7 will be all fresh MC 1.2 worlds. This means it will NOT be reset with the upcoming resets that will be happening on the other servers (http://empireminecraft.com/threads/4814/).Something else we are trying new with smp7 is pre-generating a large area of the wilderness and nether. I am currently testing doing a 5,000 block radius around the spawns and outposts.
