Two news posts back to back!?

Hey everyone! We have some followup news for you, this time concerning the BETA Worlds of Skybounds!

What are the beta islands?
If you're asking this, this post probably doesn't affect you! The BETA worlds on Skybounds are as Skybounds existed before June 15th, 2017. We considered this date our "transition to release", which which we rebalanced the kits, items, and mechanics of the server. Currently, these beta islands can be accessed from the server selector by clicking the clock in the lower right corner.

Why do you need to get rid of them?
The beta worlds are currently occupying valuable server space that we could use for other things. Community members that played on these servers as well have moved to the new worlds as well, leaving less than 10 active players per server on beta left. Savage Games has 2 major releases coming before the end of the year, and we'll need all the servers we can use.

So, what happens to the beta worlds?
The beta worlds will stop being accessible and joinable on November 1st, 2017. From then on, only the newer Skybounds worlds will be playable. As items, stars, and other game-mechanics of beta were what we did the "transition to release", for, these items will not be transferrable to the new world.

Players that have unlocked any immortal kits on the beta islands before September 30th, 2017 will find that they also have the kit on the new version of their island automatically.

Can I have my island? A copy of my friends' islands? I want my builds!
That's fine, and totally understandable! There are many tools available to allow you to download a copy of a Minecraft world, but due to the sheer amount of islands we have, we cannot offer world downloads publicly. Should you want a copy of your island, please download a copy of it using a mod like...

Happy Wednesday!
We have a small change rolling out early for you guys today that we think you'll enjoy. We've buffed AFK-kick timers across the board to let you grind your farms for longer before being kicked, as well as changed the mechanic for our more quiet worlds.

Here's what's changed:
  • Free Players: Now get kicked after 10 minutes (up from 5 minutes)
  • Ultra: Now get kicked after 30 minutes (up from 15 minutes)
  • Legend: Now get kicked after 45 minutes (up from 30 minutes)
  • Savage: Now get kicked after 1 hour (up from 45 minutes)
  • Blackshore & VIP: Now get kicked after 1 hour, 30 minutes (up from 1 hour)
On top of that, servers that have less than 200 players online will have even higher timers:
  • Free Players: 20 minutes
  • Ultra: 1 hour
  • Legend: 1 hour, 30 minutes
  • Savage: 2 hours
  • Blackshore & VIP: 3 hours
If, while AFK, a server gains more than 200 online players, your timer will swap to be using the standard AFK timers. This could cause you to be kicked sooner than what is displayed.

This change will be rolling out to all worlds today, and we think you'll enjoy it.

See you back here on Friday!

Also we have a cool new logo,.what do you think?

Official Approved/Blacklisted Mods List

This thread will give you a basic rundown as to what mods are considered both "Approved" and "Illegal"
on Skybounds. If you have any questions about mods not listed (or mods that are listed) feel free to ask and it
can be reviewed or given a more in-depth answer as to why it is not allowed.

If you are wanting to download a mod not listed on this list, please ask yourself this question before
proceeding with downloading it; Does the mod you are going to use give you an unfair advantage
over other players? If yes, don't use it. If you are unsure, either ask a staff member or go with the safe
route of not downloading it until you are certain it is safe.

Note: Please keep in mind that this list is subject to change as the SavageGames staff teams determines
specific modifications to be considered approved or illegal. It is suggested to keep an active eye on this
thread if you are actively or planning on potentially using modifications on your Minecraft client.
