Exclamation Frontier world starts Fri 30 Dec, 8:30pm EDT (GMT + 11)

Okay. We have a bigger Sanctuary, so we can now have a Frontier. Some of us are still in the festive season too much this week, so my proposal is to start Frontier on the Friday night after Xmas. The Friday night was chosen so that those poor Aussie souls who still have to work can join us (after all, someone has to run the post-Xmas sales). I'll consider changing it to earlier in the week if you tell me quickly. I don't know how you all run your lives.

If you don't know how we run our lives then don't presume we are working If it is ready, just release it I think. People have been waiting months as it is. Didn't like the sanctuary world I spent 15 minutes in last night, which comprised of about 10 minutes swimming across ocean. Bad seed is bad.

Any chance we could get the seed before release so we can look around, or would that be unfair?

I also like sooner. I'll try to spend some time tonight on screencaps and such, just in case.

Frontier is not tonight because I do not have time to set it up. It is not simply turning it on. The Sanctuary upgrade took around 4 hours (plus the testing and experiments in days and weeks before).

However, if people are happy, I can shift Frontier's starting to the day after Boxing Day. So that would be Tues 27th Dec, 8:30pm EDT (GM + 11).

And no, having the seed in advance is not possible. It will be a random seed, and part of the challenge of Frontier is supposed to be the unknown.

ps. MadMax, you just simply went in the wrong direction! There is a lot less water and more funky mountains in other regions. And remember that most people felt this was a good seed for Beta 1.8... half of the chunk generation seems to be the same when 1.0 was introduced. The water (and snow) is the new stuff.
