Infinity Miners 2.0 Server Transfer Information

Hey Everyone!

I first wanted to start out by saying thank you to everyone that has joined Infinity Miners! You have truly made lasting memories and gave us some of the greatest times the server has ever seen. Over the past few years Minecraft has developed quite a bit of content and with that content has come patches, overhauls, and more. We want to do everything we can to continue to create a fun place to build and play with your friends, but we also know a lot of this means supporting the latest Minecraft version to keep up with the fresh content and development patches.

During the past few months, we have been doing a lot of research on ways we could make an upgrade to our current server to fit the new Minecraft version but 1.15 is such a large update with too many internal code changes to list. We could have forced an update to our current server but that would cause a lot of things to break as well as worlds to still have the old maps with no new content. With older versions like 1.13+ coming out we wanted to wait patiently to where it would become stable again for us to build out. Currently, a lot of plugin developers are now on board with 1.15 and we feel comfortable to make the switch.

Both Cosmic and I wanted to take this opportunity to look back on what we have built, learned, and created over the past year as well as be able to revisit some of our plugins with the new server Minecraft version. We also took the time to dive back into the economy, gameplay, crates, and a ton more. We want to give Infinity Miners the foundation needed to grow for years to come.

As I mentioned last week Infinity Miners will be relaunching to a brand new 1.15.1 server. When you get connected to the new server in a few weeks you are going to be launched to our familiar-looking spawn but in a whole new environment. The new Infinity Miners server is built on the new Minecraft 1.15.1 version and this means tons of new content and of course bees!!

We are ready to take the leap forward and hope you are too!

Let me take some time to answer a few questions about the new server:

Will I be able to take my build over to the new server?

We are going to allow you to request to transfer 1 build which is up to 100 x 100 blocks into the new server. Please only request completed builds or builds you are currently working on (no plain towers). If your build is larger than that please message Cosmic or me and we can try and work something out. But due to the amount of time and resources, this takes please try and limit what you want to be transferred.

You will not be able to transfer any of the old items, chests, keys, decoration heads, named tools/armor, etc. And since this is a fresh start for Infinity Miners we wanted to avoid bringing in overpowered tools/gear/items into the world from the start.

Please do not intentionally request to transfer a build that is built with diamonds, iron, beacons, etc. in hopes to demolish it and sell it on the new server. We will be inspecting the requested transfers and if caught the build will not be transferred.

Please use this link here to submit your build transfer application:

https://forms.gle/qwnvXK5P9vNA64fA9

1 submission per player. Once your request is submitted please do not open a new one.

What will be transferred to the new server?

  • Along with one of your builds, all donor ranks and permissions will be transferred. However, some perks/features have been either changed, replaced, or been removed due to plugin restrictions.

What will not be transferred to the new server?

  • All in-game currency.
  • All player data including jobs, in-game ranks, leaderboard and vanilla stats.
  • All in-game achievements.
  • All inventories, chests, player vaults, and ender chests.
  • All home locations will not be transferred as it’s a new map.
  • Some entities such as item frames, paintings, armor stands, when copied over may not make the transfer and could get lost while trying to replace.

Items NOT allowed for transfer:

  • Tools/Armor
  • Expensive stacked Blocks
  • Chests
  • Cosmetic Items
  • Decorative Heads
  • Map Images

How do I start the transfer process to get my build on the new server and help out as best I can?

Fill out the form mentioned above and either Cosmic or myself will be reviewing the build on the application as well as forcing a clean up in the area to remove any exploitable items and prevent abuse. If you have containers, hoppers, furnaces, shulker boxes, trapped chests, droppers, etc. which are capable of storing items please remove these prior to request. We appreciate any help we can get!

When will my build be live on the new server and how can I pick a spot?

After we have reviewed your build, approved it, copied & saved it. Then it’s off to the next step! Getting it pasted on the new server. Once the server is live a staff member will reach out to you and ask If you have found a suitable location for your home. And once this is done we can paste it in for you.

What is going to happen with the old server, will I be able to access it?

The old Infinity Miners server is going to be online for a month after the new server launches but will be running with limited features and plugins to focus on performance for the new server. No new updates will be made to it and the server will have limited features so you can prepare your build to be transferred. After about a month we will take the old server offline so be sure to request your build transfer as soon as possible.

What can we expect to see on the new server?

For starters, we have tons of new vanilla content which includes new types of blocks, animals, villagers, and a whole lot more, way too many things to list! Infinity Miners wants to stay true to its survival roots and bring you a close to vanilla survival feel but with a modified version of the Minecraft we have all grown to love on our server.

On this new server, we are revisiting as much as we can to bring you guys something new, fresh, and exciting. Everything pretty much had to be written from the ground up, but we are keeping our familiar approach with the Infinity Miners 2.0 release.

There is still quite a bit of stuff to get done on the current development test server I am working on but we are getting closer to completion! My hopes are to be able to soft launch the new server on February 1st, 2020. During this time we will be in a whitelist beta testing stage and there may be frequent restarts, updates, or patches being done as we gain more insight and data. We might be able to release sooner than expected but hopefully not later.

I will be sure to keep everyone updated with what I am currently working on in the discord #sneak-peeks channel so be sure to check that out often!

More to come soon!
