    Hello, all!

    Sorry for the late post, meant to finish this up last night but wanted to get some last details before going forward.

    This post will be giving you some general info on what happens when you import your island to release. For obvious reasons, not everything comes with you (that'd be super OP!), so this will ease some other questions we've been getting!

    Q: Who can import islands?
    A:
    Anybody with Savage rank will have the ability to import their island. If you do not have Savage Rank, you can purchase it after release, and you will then have the option to perform the import.

    Q: What transfers with an imported island?
    A:
    Almost everything. Below are the list of blocks/materials that will not come with your imported island:
    • Player Heads
    • Chests
    • Furnaces
    • Dispensers
    • Droppers
    • Hoppers
    • Hopper Minecarts
    • Storage Minecarts
    • Shopkeepers
    • Parkour Pads
    • Ore Seeds
    • Ores (Will convert to stone)
    • Ore Blocks (Diamond Block, Emerald blocks, etc, will convert to stone)
    • Animals
    • Monsters
    • Spawners
    • Ground items
    • Dropzone chests
    • Item Frames
    • Armor Stands
    We'll update this last as necessary. All of these things will stay on your island on the beta islands, even if you import. It's simply a list of what won't follow you.

    Q: Where will imported islands go?
    A:
    Imported islands will use your island slot like making an island normally would. When you make a new island on the new islands (while savage and while you have an importable island), you will be asked if you'd like to import your old island as opposed to making a fresh one. The blocks that won't come with you will be shown in-game as well.

    Q: When can I do this?
    A:
    Island importing will be available to all until the end of July, 2017. After which, your islands will only be usable on the beta version. You can also only import your island once. Resetting your island then making a new one will not offer you the option to import.

    Q: Why are you limiting what imports?
    A:
    It's the whole point of rebalancing. We never touch your original island on the beta version of your world, but the new version needs to be stripped of all OP resources otherwise there'd be no point in this rebalance update to begin with.

    Q: How do I import my island?
    A:
    On the day of the update, simply type /is new like you normally would. Select the template called "my Beta island" to begin the import process. Savage rank is required to do this.

    It's also worth noting that we're taking a snapshot of all islands on June 15th (Thursday). This is the version of the island that will be imported. Example: If you continued building on your beta island after Thursday, then choose to import, the version of your island saved on June 15th is what would be brought over. This also means that any islands created on the beta version after Thursday will not be eligible to import.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know! We hope you're as excited for the rebalance update as we are.

    Item frames count as a ground entity, as well as armor stands.

    Ok, so if I start playing on the new islands (I'm ultra rank) and buy savage later on, do I reset my current island to import my beta island?

    Idea: Everyone within 2 levels of prestige should automatically get prestige when joining the new islands. I know everyone within 10 levels gets a spinner but what if you lose? Being that close and not getting prestige is kinda messed up. I am 8 levels from prestige so....Im not suggesting this for my benifit.

    Does this mean that just decoration blocks and crops can be imported, or is there any other things?

    Trvalv basically only "worthless" stuff as Building will be moveable. So people who put a ton of effort in their Islands can keep those (mostly) while everything giving you stars or any advantage ingame will be deleted on the new islands

    If players were to put armour on armour stands and items in item frames - those items/armour won't transfer over, correct? As it obviously would allow players to bring items over which may give them an advantage.
