When we first opened the server at the start of 2014, we were unsure of how it would pan out, and whenever we would still be here in a month of so. Back then, it would have been silly to imagine ReCrafted gaining 2000+ members on the website, and it still seems quite awkward to think about.
Non the less, we made it.
ReCrafted Civilizations has recently passed the 2000 website users milestone, which is a very big achievement for us. We would like to thank all of those players who have sticked with us throughout the highs and lows of the community, and say welcome to those who only just started out. We would not be here without you.
Hello Recrafted. Recently, as we have all noticed, there has been a decline in the active playerbase. We have decided as a staff team now is the perfect time to do a map reset. This reset will be different to our previous one, however I will go into more detail on that in a minute.
When starting out in a nations RP server, I believe this is the most entertaining part of playing as you are able to develop a new nation amongst your friends where you can rebuild a country the way you desire. This is a part of the Recrafted experience which players miss and hopefully this reset will allow you to all have that experience.
I’d like to thank the whole community for making our current map the success that is was and I would like to also thank the staff team who have worked so hard on keeping the server going.
And before you guys rage about how you’ll lose your builds, the map will be publicly available for download.
How the reset will happen
Firstly, it will be a full reset. This means the following:
Faction data will be reset
Money will be reset
Characters will be reset (Unless you desire to keep your chars name)
MCMMO data WILL be kept. (More info on that soon)
All buildings will be removed
Year will be set back to the period voted upon
Nations which have been merged will be unmerged
Nations will no longer have the same leaders (Unless they reapply)
Secondly, there will be short period of downtime. I am predicting about 5 days however that is only if no bugs/errors pop up on the way.
MCMMO levels will be kept. This is because it would be unfair on those who donated for MCMMO levels and on those who have worked hard on attaining them over the past year.
What to do for the 5 days Downtime
There will be many things available for you to do during this downtime. Firstly, as nations are being wiped, you can apply/reapply for a nation. This also allows everyone to have an opportunity to recruit and even number of players for their nation.
The next thing you can do is sort out your character apps/bios. This gives you a new opportunity to develop a fresh character and meet other new characters IC.
Here is a list of things for nation leaders in particular to do:
Plan out your cities builds
Assign positions of power to members you have recruited
Decide how you want to run your country
Set up alliances
What to do BEFORE the reset
2ecat and Asuna4 have decided they will host the Olympics this Saturday and Sunday. For those who wish to take part, get online at 11pm GMT both days.
The server will close for maintenance on the Monday. This means after the Olympics on Sunday, we need to have one final event. I will be hosting “The Purge” Straight after that event.
What can I do to help?
You guys can help us out greatly by spreading the word about the map reset and simply being active on the forums planning for the reset.
You can also vote on what time period you'd like to have in Recrafted 3.0
The Olympics (Pt1)
The Olympics (Pt2)
The closing ceremony: The last night on Earth (IC event (Memories will not be carried over to next world))
New map added
Spawn transferred over to new world
Nation applications to be accepted/denied
It's been a good year and I believe it is time for a change. This change will be one of the biggest we’ve had yet in Recrafted and we hope this chance to start fresh gives us all a chance to take a break and come back hyped for the new era in Recrafted history.
