Hey everyone! As you all know the Project: New World is under way. We have until the weekend of Minecon (September 24th-25th) to get set and ready for the transfer of structures. Ideally I would like us to be prepared for the transfer by that weekend in the event the patch goes live. There are no guarantees that 1.11 will launch that weekend or that it will be all we expected so I would rather be prepared! Speaking of…
Glad you asked!
Think of it as spring cleaning! Now is the time to begin compiling your resources into one area. This will ensure that nothing gets left behind unintentionally. It will also allow you to see what you have and what you do not want or need. Keep in mind that there is no limit to the amount of stock you can transfer so don’t throw out all those cobble stones and spider eyes unless you really want to! 🙂
On another note, as I am gathering your coordinates, I will stop by your location with 12 large chests, 1 chest labeling kit, and 1 item incinerator. These items will be placed in an area of your choosing. Any items you do not use from the chest labeling kit you may keep or incinerate. Keep in mind once an item goes into the incinerator there’s no getting it back!
I would like to start compiling a list of everyone’s coordinates. This is just a general location check that will make assisting all of you much easier in the coming weeks.
These coordinates are for structures being transferred but also for inventory. So, if you are one that is not transferring a structure but plan on transferring your stock pile, I still need your coordinates. This will ensure quick transfer down the road and I will also drop off the above care package in an area of your choosing.
If you have more than one structure, or group or structures, to transfer please give them names so that we can differentiate between your builds at a glance of my list.
A Fresh Start
Every once in a while its nice to start fresh, clean the slate! If you do not have a structure or a stock pile you wish to transfer that’s just fine! I would still like to know to ensure no one gets left behind by accident.
Of course, you don’t have to start completely over. You are still allowed a Care Package consisting of your character inventory if you so choose. This includes supplies, armor, weapons, and tools. (This Care Package will not be collected until the point of transfer.) Use your time wisely! Just because you aren’t bringing that much over doesn’t you can’t make it epic! Enchant your armor, weapons, and tools. Think about what you would like to have getting started in the new world.
To those of you who are just ready to frolic in a new land with not a care or an item in the world just sit back and relax. Join events at YVG City and dream about the New World to come!
Later on Closer to Transfer:
As we get closer to a new world there are a few things I would like to accomplish. For this phase and the transfer phase to go smoothly I will need your participation and cooperation, as well as, patience and understanding. Most of this will take time and some of it may not be easy but I will do everything I can to streamline the process.
Things to Know About Structure Transfer:
Shortly before transfer I will spend a day or more going over what structures and areas need to be transferred and gathering the coordinates encasing them. Doing this just before the transfer will ensure that any changes between now and then will be included in the transfer so play away!
When it comes time for your structure to be analyzed I will need your undivided attention and a detailed tour of your area. This process, depending on the structure and/or number of structures you wish to transfer, may take quite a bit of time. When it comes time I will schedule an amount of time I think is reasonable with each player to analyze their builds.
Land Around Structures
Grabbing and moving entire biomes would be awesome! But it’s really not practical. My suggestion for you is, if you want to be surrounded by the same biome as before, you must choose a location that is the same biome on the new world.
We all have your secrets…
especially our secret tunnels! Or not so secret tunnels to our buddy’s bases or other areas far away. These tunnels, as wondrous and beautiful as they may be or how long it took to make is, unfortunately, irrelevant in the realm of transfer. Tunnels will not be transferred and here’s why:
- Everyone is moving to a new world with new coordinates. Chances are these connected structures will not be in the same locations they use to be compared to others in the original world. Needless to say they just won’t line up properly.
- Super long tunnels are great for traveling long distances and not having to worry about whats going on above ground. But these tunnels could be thousands of blocks long and run into the same issue of not lining up. Not to mention, if this tunnel was intended to be secret and not run underneath other players structures there is no easy way of knowing if the same will be true upon transfer.
In short, Transferring tunnels, short or long, is just impractical and will not be done. I hope you all understand and I am sorry if this causes you any inconvenience.
That’s all for now. I will make a more detailed post regarding the actual transfer process closer to the event of transfer. Be sure to hop on and start condensing your stock piles. It may be a good idea to get with me first about your coordinates so I can also provide you with the stuff I mentioned above.
Take care and have fun!
