World Border

It has recently come to my attention that the file size of the new world has drastically increased over the past month relative to previous new worlds. The new world is only 1 month old and yet the file size is now over 6GB.

I believe this is mainly due to teleportation abuse from teleporting to extremely far away coordinates, which is against the donator rules (rule #9). This drastically expands the size of the map as exploration occurs from those far away points and is bad for the server because larger worlds are difficult to maintain and also lag the server more. There is also limited amount of storage space the server has available, and at this rate we could reach it very soon. For this reason I am now forced to take action, which means the implementation of a world border and/or removal of teleportation to coordinates.

Sometime soon (this week or next week) a world border will be placed at 10000 blocks away from spawn. All existing areas beyond the border will be inaccessible, although as time goes on I will gradually increase the distance of the border from spawn as should occur naturally (people move outwards as land and resources are used up in the centre). The border is not final and may be subject to change depending on what players think. The distance of 10000 blocks from spawn is merely a minimum.

Please send a comment to this news article with your thoughts on how far the distance from the border should be.

------------

The main purpose of this article is to raise awareness of the negative effects of traversing too far away. The world border is just something to shock people into realising what will ultimately happen if carelessness in teleportation to far away coordinates continues.

I agree that we should have a world border, BUT any donator with access to /gmc (creative) can eaily /jump through the world border and because they are in creative, it will not kill them. yes you cannot build but you can still fly far away... easy fix though, just take /jump from everyone excluding staff or opped staff. not a huge loss, it isnt that much of an important command. -Chip

If you pass the world border you will be teleported to the nearest location within the border.

I got banned by Jesse for griefing but I did not grief. So if that could be checked and I could be un-banned that would be great :)

I agree with the world border, since the server tends to lag at times. Great idea! :)

Lerz ya dummy the lag comes from other people going into the old world. Once the old world is gone the lag might fade. Oh and im pretty sure i've said that already.

Stojan ya dummy lag is also caused by people loading extra chunks that aren't particularly needed. I remember an old admin by the name of HazzaB having to talk to a player about doing it (she was about 80,000 blocks out).

Since there is a new world and the old world is practically useless, can you publish the seed of the old world? I would love to have the map on my own computer (at least the part where I lived).

I think 25k to 30k out would be sufficient for a server of this size.

May I ask why we still have the old world? I mean, it's like it's taking up space that could be used for better things,

We should have a World Border. I think it should extend over time though.

Please just have it at say 25,000 blocks max. My base was easily annihilated by KurleySammy, who is now banned, even 10,000 blocks away from spawn in a semi-secret base.
