Wastelands Reset Incoming!

Discussion in 'Empire News' started by Krysyy, Jul 26, 2021.

  1. Can we have specification on whether this is 1.17.1 or 1.17 like it says in the OP.
  2. EMC updates will always be to the latest stable version.
  3. Anyone???
  4. If this happens by Sunday night, that would be perfect timing since I'm planning on streaming on Empire then! Of course, I'm not saying that as a request, I just think it would be cool to stream on Empire right after the update.

  5. I can tell you it won't be by Sunday night because Sunday Aikar is busy.

  6. Just my thought. It would be nice if it was early on a weekend if possible. And I think they generally are. Even if it's in September it would still be a quick update here since 1.17 was just released on June 8.
  7. I'm so sad. I'm out of town for 2 weeks starting tomorrow. I can't wait to get back and start converting all my signs/item frames to glowing ones. Not to mention getting some goats.
  8. Aw, okay. Still, really hyped about this!
  9. It's been a while since I've been around for a wastelands reset, how much advanced notice will we have once a date/time is finalized? Or is this thread our advanced notice?
  10. Awesomesauce!
  11. It could happen anytime now, usually outside of business working hours. You might get a short warning in-game if staff are able to predict it. If you're in the wastelands you can look up and see staff descending from space to destroy the planet. (not really)

    Just as a reminder for all of us anxiously waiting...

    Staff are excited about this too! The EMC staff handle upgrades very professionally and they deserve to be applauded. These things are just unpredictable because they're complicated and the timing isn't that important. What's important is that staff feel it's ready and are available to handle any bug reports or issues that come in.
  12. looking ahead, may I suggest a reset is scheduled now for November?
    1.17 came out 2 months ago. Assuming the same time will be needed to get ready for 1.18 (coming out December) this would allow us to have regular 3 months resets.

  13. I am going to jump in here even though I know little to nothing just cause that's what I do and guess the 1.18 update will take considerably more from the developers due to expanding the sky and floor limits. This update could be far in the future. But, I will say, in the olden days they did do resets on a regular 3 month basis with no updates associated with them.

  14. I asked because since I joined I only heard that "a reset is not needed" or "an update is coming soon anyway", and I would like not to get in November with "1.18 is coming soon anyway" and end up like now that is more than 6 months since the last reset

  15. Cool your boots youngling.. You’ve only been on the server for almost 5 months. Plenty of resources still out there in the wastes.
  16. knowing this server for nearly 10 years now the reset in november is pretty likely and 1.18 somewhere end of summer 2022

  17. A couple or more years ago I questioned Aikar about resetting the waste after it had not been reset for a period that exceeded 3 months. This was the exact response I got. At that point the waste was considerably more chewed up than it is now. He was right, depending on what you were looking for and how far out you wanted to go to find it.
