First things first, I want to say thank you to everyone from staff to all of the players. Without all of you, this community wouldn’t be where it is today nor would it be alive! Thank you for everyone’s support through the highs and lows. Some of you may have noticed that the Survival Reborn server has not been getting many updates other than fixes for major issues that have come up. This is because we have been focusing on our newest step forward and with that said, I’m proud to announce Survival 3.0.
What is Survival 3.0?
Survival 3.0 will be the RoyaleMC’s next Survival server which will replace Survival Reborn once released. That’s right, this will be a FULL reset (with some exceptions) with a bunch of improvements, new features, and so much more! Before getting into all the fancy details, let’s tackle the question, “why a reset” that many of you may be asking.
Why a Reset?
To those who have been around for a while, this shouldn’t be any surprise. Since the creation of RoyaleMC and our first Survival server back in 2019, we have reset the server around once a year. With each reset, we learn from our mistakes, implement new features, remove old/not liked features, and so much more. There are also features and fixes we can not implement without a fresh start. Reborn has been a huge success but it does have its flaws and those flaws we plan to address.
We want our community to know that we don’t just reset the server for fun. A lot of planning, work, frustrations, go into each reset and especially this one. We hope everyone enjoys the new server, fresh start, and all the new features!
Now time to get into the fun... What’s New? Changing? Removed?
ItemSkins plugin - Players will now be able to remove skins from items and rotate the skins on your favorite tool and weapons.
Server will be running the latest version of paper (1.20.X) and will include the latest biomes, blocks, mobs, etc.
Player Mall - In order to create player shops, a mall plot will need to be rented within the mall world. Some plots are in the mall, while some plots are available to build your own buildings.
Cosmetics - Cosmetic items like wings, hat, backpacks, etc currently take an inventory slot. Either it being your off-hand or head slot. This will no longer be the case. You will be able to wear your favorite hat, wings or backpack, all while having a full set or armor, sword and shield in your hand! Complete those outfits like never before!
Lands - A whole new way to claim land. Powered by the lands plugin. This plugin is not a complex as the current plug-in but has a lot of great features and is less confusing to use. If you have never used it, it’s similar to towny but not really.
Cosmetic Credits and Cosmetic Shop - Right now, we only offer some cosmetics on the store and it requires the purchase of an entire pack. Soon, we will only offer Cosmetic Credits to be purchased from the store which can be used within the in-game Cosmetic Shop to buy specific item skins, furniture, etc. without having to buy complete packs.
Envoys - Envoys will spawn randomly on a set schedule. Locate the chests to obtain limited/rare rewards.
New Slimefun Addon - Quaptics
Dungeons (this will be added after release but the reset allows us to implement core components that we couldn’t prior preventing us from moving forward.)
Resource Worlds auto resetting consistently
A complete overhaul to the Slimefun ranks and tokens. Improved balancing, unlocks, recipes and more. Thank you to our @balance team for spending so much time and effort on this.
Claims will have daily upkeep costs based on the amount of claimed chunks.
Slimefun limits per chunk for certain machines/blocks. Similar to cargo limits, some machines and blocks will be limited on a per chunk basis. Slimefun ranks will increase these limits.
Adjustments to RoyaleMC custom Slimefun items and tools
Crates will all be virtual keys (stops the duping of keys)
Villagers will no longer spawn in villages, and breeding has been disabled. We have made adjustments to the /shop. Villagers are very lag heavy when hundreds are ticking.
PyroFishing tournaments - in order to compete you will need to fish somewhere within Spawn when the tournament is happening
and many other minor fixes to menus, tab formatting, etc.
Jobs plug-in - that’s right, jobs has been completely removed. Jobs was added years ago on our first addition of Survival, way before we used any of the Pyro plugins. Other than the Hunter job, people don’t use the jobs plugin for making money.
These are the main topics. Some things might of been missed or haven’t been finalized to include in this announcement.
Most, if not all of the changes above, were done for one of the following reasons:
Server performance, lag, and overall health
Player feedback, complaints, and discussions
Current Custom Items and Furniture
If you were here for our Towny server, you will know we transferred your custom items from Towny to Reborn. We will do the same for Reborn to Survival 3.0 with some exceptions. As mentioned above, we are using a new Item Skins plugin. Instead of obtaining the physical item, you will be given the item skin to the associated custom item. The custom furniture will be exactly the same and carried over. We are still in the process of figuring out exactly how we want to handle transferring the items and will post more information later this week.
Last time, we did it manually via tickets.
We are looking at different options to make this task less tedious but if not tickets it will be…
We will be kicking off the reset with a huge Halloween event with tons of custom items, furniture, tags, and fun things to do! More details to come!
We are looking to release the server on October 1st, 2023. We still have a handful of things to finish and clean up but as of right now that date is looking promising. If anything is to change, we will keep everyone posted!
What Happens After Release?
After release, Survival Reborn will stay open for 2 to 3 weeks after release to allow players time to gather their cosmetics items and say their goodbyes to any builds/memories. During this time frame, Slimefun will be removed from the server meaning any Slimefun items will not work. There is no need for Slimefun to be running during this time frame and using unneeded server resources.
Maybe for the final few days we enable TNT and let yall blow up spawn?
With all of that said, we really hope everyone enjoys the new start and all the new changes and features we are including. We fully understand that resets are always bitter sweet. As mentioned above, we never make changes or decisions to harm our community or players unless absolutely needed. We are always looking at the positives and what will help the server/community thrive further. Reborn had a good run, now it’s time to take what we have learned on the things we have done wrong and the things we have done right in Reborn and apply them to a new Survival experience!
Was created directly for Sername….
Reset is coming, new features, changes, yee haw… Old server go bye bye.. Copy your cosmetics to new server.
