The Admins have discussed the various possible ways to trim the present world and we have decided to set the new border at 8500 blocks from Spawn. This is a circular radius and will be set on Monday. From that point, no-one but Admins will be able to travel, warp or teleport further out. You will be stopped and a message will be displayed on the screen informing you that you have reached the border. This border will be invisible, but the community can manually set up beacons or fences where it is deemed necessary.
Now this border (and the subsequent trimming) will mean that some existing constructions will be inaccessible and removed. This is unfortunate but necessary so that we can all get the most out of the hardware and software we have available. The delay until Monday is to allow people to take photos of their works and remove any items they have beyond the future border. We ask that players still respect each other and respect the work and playing of others, even if their constructions will soon be gone.
The trimming will not necessarily occur on Monday, but the border will. We will tell you when the trimming will happen as we will need to shutdown the server during that time.
As a guide as to where will be affected, I have roughly indicated the border on this copy of the last map.
The warps that will be beyond the border are believed to be:
TopOfTheWorld, aquarium, dm.lavafall, dm.north, dm.pool, dm.rocks, dm.waterfall2, dm.waterfall3, dm.waterfall4, dm.waterfall5, dm.waterfall, exe.exp, exe.northhouse, exe.pumpkinbarn, frozen.lake, frozen.sea, jooh.exp10, jooh.exp11, jooh.exp12, jooh.exp13, jooh.exp14, jooh.exp15, jooh.exp16, jooh.exp17, jooh.exp2, jooh.exp3, jooh.exp4, jooh.exp5, jooh.exp6, jooh.exp8, jooh.exp9, jooh.exp, jooh.wonder, mmog.ice, mmogaddict.claim, muz_explore, muz_p2n, muz_p2w, nam.outpost, nam.temp, orcneas.claim, snaketails.incline, snaketails.lavacave, snaketails.mine, snaketails.sandmine, snaketails.shaft, snaketails.splunking.adventures, snaketails.tunnel.n.top, snaketails.tunnel.n, snaketails.tunnel.w.top, snaketails.tunnel.w, snaketails.1, zombies.on.ice
I repeat myself. On Monday, these warps and the lands beyond them will no longer be accessible. The TOG world may be shrinking but hopefully it will allow us to improve the game.
