    After being on the current map for over 2 years now, the time has come for a world reset on the main (Kingdoms) server!

    With the reset tomorrow (26th) done, we'll be updating the server software to Minecraft 1.8 with support for all newly introduced items and mobs. As you may have heard, this Minecraft update was the largest code change since it's creation and thus the server software itself also received a lot of plugin-breaking changes. I have patched most of our custom plugins to support the new changes but I expect there to be some unresolved bugs at launch that will be patched rapidly as they are discovered and reported.

    The Kingdoms plugin itself has also been updated to introduce tiered towns. At launch, there will be 4 town tiers: Village, Town, City, and Metropolis. The new tiered system makes owning towns more affordable than ever with villages starting at just 15,000 coin (down from the current 50,000 Dei upfront) and pricing to upgrade to each tier costing between 15-25k.

    Villages support upto 20 plots and 5 residents at 500 dei per plot and is ideal for a small group of players who wish to live together on protected land. Each town tier supports larger maximum resident counts (towns: upto 40 residents; cities: 100; metropolis: 100+). Each town tier upgrade also decreases the cost per plot (500 to 350 dei per plot) and cost-per-town-warp. There are some other perks for larger towns that will be released as we stabilize the post-reset server.

    A special thanks to The_Yogs for writing up the initial proposal for the Kingdoms 3 changes and also congrats to him and Doha town staff/residents on hitting a record 2000(+) resident count on the current map!

    We have more changes planned for Kingdoms/classes/other plugins but due to the complexity of this 1.8 upgrade, we'll be saving those till after the reset is successful and more importantly, stabilized.

    Thanks to all the staff for their contributions and the players that have faithfully supported us for over 3 years. Happy holidays to all and we look forward to giving you a great ImDeity Minecraft experience going into the new year!

    So excited for the new map and all future updates to kingdoms!

    I'll see everyone on the other side. Although records are meant to be broken, the next mayor/town to break a 2015+ resident count will have to be borderline crazy :)

    And... for the historical filing cabinet: http://i.imgur.com/RIsfvPN.jpg

    Thank you so much Master Deity, you have brought together people who otherwise wouldn't have met, made Minecraft fun, and let us all experience things together in team speak and game. You are forever the best server owner but I do hope this map dies a cruel death :D

    Awesome, i hope you find room for some custom town chat tags, so roles can be assigned to add to the epic roleplay action adventures.

    Yeah the whole map is too large to save, but like i did, you could install world downloader and save your town.
