Default What The Hell?

I just logged in to find my character moved miles from the spawn where he was parked and my inventory completely empty.

It's hard enough surviving long enough to get some tools and some wood and having to make runs out into the wilderness trying to find exposed chunks of coal cause the TOG mine has mobs in it and then find what little i scratched together gone and my character in some location i have never been to before.

I'm not happy about this.

We've moved back to the regular survival world this week. Is it possible that you are referring to where you were located on the test survival world that's been running for the last couple of weeks?

I've checked the backup of the regular survival world taken about a week ago when it was down and I don't see any player file for you, which normally indicates you hadn't logged into that particular world.

EDIT: I've checked the test world, and it seems you were last logged in there on 3 March, which I believe was the day before the move back to the regular survival world.

Yeah this is the risk I was talking about in the other thread about the test server being active so much that people belive it's the main server.

Hopefully this should be a non-problem from now on as we've decided to not upgrade as soon as a new version is available. (We did decide that right?)

Yes, we expect any time on the test servers will be significantly reduced now that the ability for the game client to not auto update is in place.

May I recommend that if you haven't visited this world before, you use /spawn to reach the spawn fortress, have a look at the map/s Thermal made and work out where you wish to move from there.

The Survival maps are:
TOG Minecraft Survival World Map (Day) - 3 March 2011
TOG Minecraft Survival World Map (Night) - 3 March 2011
and whilst they are not totally up-to-date, I imagine not much has changed.

Unfortunately, I think we need to restock the supplies at Spawn for Survival. I don't think there are many basic tools left (if any).

Sorontar,
ps. This is why it pays to read the forum folks! (and the welcome message every time you join one of the servers... for the temp Survival world, it says "Welcome to the TOG Survival Test Server").
pps. If the test worlds are active/being used, then this is also normally listed in the http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...map-links.html

I cant login for still 4 weeks This mac wont do multiplayer so im watching the maps pretty keenly too.

Whats worse is it appears my grass seeding plans have failed. From the res I can get it appears that placing a sign on a 1xmany strip of soil stops seeding at the sign, woe is me.

If anyone cares to find my house (directions in the travel agency at spawn castle) you'll probably see the sign outside, says grass seeding...tear the bugger down and my island farm will boot up, feel free to use (idle there day or night and livestock will spawn, you gotta kill it yourself though, might add a machine later)
