An amazing amount of terrain generation and visual changes are happening in the 1.7 update. With this thread I am opening discussion for a couple possible scenarios:
A: Do nothing, if people want new generation, they travel outside current generation.
Pros: Keep your stuff
Cons: Travel farther for new generation, possible ugly transitions
B: Server Wipe, new map, everyone starts over
Pros: All New Everything
Cons: "Lose" everything you currently have
C: Continental Shift: We use The Nether to go a couple thousand blocks away from current spawn and build a portal.
Pros: The world will generate with the newly updated generation, mobs, ect.
Cons: Travel time between continents. If you happen to die and spawn at The Spawn, you will have to travel quite a way to get back to the new continent.
If the current world is to be kept (A or C) then I am going to start doing some cleanup. 1/2 done buildings will be leveled, plots that were never used will be reassigned.
While I will take into consideration the votes in this thread, those who have continued to play or have been on more recently will have a bit more pull in the decision. I will make the final call to do what is best for the ICMC Community.
So... Let's hear those opinions
ICMC: The Restart II? 29 votes
Do Nothing: Leave the world alone!
Server Wipe: A whole New World!
Continental Shift: Start a new continent
