Good afternoon all.
The Pixelmon crew have some tasty updates coming up in their next version which we're expecting sometime in the next couple of weeks or so (though this is all speculation, we can never be sure about these things!) Perhaps the most interesting things will be Mega Evolutions from the Gen VI games and the generation of gyms! We will update OP quickly after 5.0.2 is out.
However - with the changes that we're expecting (see the Pixelmon Upcoming Changes page), we believe that a full reset is the best course of action. We have many reasons for this:
- The generation of Gyms means that the world generation will significantly change. We want to take advantage of this.
- Mega evolutions of pokemon lent us to the decision to allow everyone to start on a clean slate - pokemon will be reset.
- Our economy is broken again - this should allow us to fix it and hopefully this time keep it fixed!
- This is the easiest way to fix the freeze bug some of you are experiencing, we believe it's world specific.
- There have been a lot of changes in the background on Infinity MC in the past few months with changes to the staff team - indeed, I've been really busy with my own work and Nucleus and so have not been around. This allows us to persue a better direction to try to maximise the server potential. This doesn't mean a huge number of changes right now, but we have exciting developments that we are working on. There will be more on that in the coming months.
Of course, in true Infinity MC style, we make sure things are fair:
- Donators, of course, will get all the items that they paid for when they log in the first time after the reset.
- We will hold small drop parties here and there over the couple of weeks after the reset at random to give players a boost.
- We will hold a scheduled shiny drop party about a week after reset.
Our Legacy server will not be touched.
Finally, let me say thank you for sticking with us. Whilst I personally will likely be quiet in itself, working on Nucleus and my own life and I therefore am taking more of an advisory for the current team, you can rest assured that the rest of the team are working hard to bring you the next generation of InfinityMC. We cannot wait to show it to you!
All the best,
~dual and the InfinityMC team.
