    We're hard at work getting the server ready to exit beta next Friday, June 16th. We're very excited to make the transition and finally "rebalance" the server. We hope you're all excited as well!

    We are holding off content updates for this week for next Friday, to allow us to focus on making sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible.

    Don't know what I'm talking about?
    Here's what to expect as we enter next week:

    Monday, June 12th
    • We will be announcing the details of what blocks are not brought with you on an island import. We are still working out the logistics of this, so I don't want to hint at anything here just yet.

    Thursday, June 15th
    • Savage Games will go offline Thursday afternoon. This will allow us to make changes to the servers and worlds as necessary without impacting gameplay.
    • All current worlds will be dubbed "The Beta Islands", and will remain playable via an NPC in the spawns of the new servers. Nothing will be lost.
    • The shop will be going offline as we specify the details of kits and ikits in the new islands. The contents of these kits will not change in the beta islands.
    Friday, June 16th
    • Savage Games will come back online, out of beta.
    • There will be a beta version of every current island, with all your stuff as you left it.
    • There will be two new islands: Steampunk & Dinosaurs (No beta versions of these, of course.)
    • There will be an updated warzone on the new version of all current islands
    FAQs
    Q: Wait, what's happening to my island, my items, everything!?

    A: Nothing. All of your things will still be accessible from the beta version of the island you play on. For details as to why we're doing this, see Mitch's post.

    Q: Do I keep my ranks? Kits? IKits? etc.
    A: Short answer: Yes. You're not losing anything. Immortal Kit and Kit contents will change in the new version of the islands, but will still give the insanely-OP gear you're used to on the Beta version of the islands. Any items collected from non-unlocked ikits will still be usable on the beta islands.

    Q: Do I lose my Stars?
    A: Short Answer: No. Think of it like a new island release. Your current balance will be accessible on the beta version of your island, but not on the new version.

    Q: Who can go to the beta islands?
    A: Everybody. However, creating new islands on the beta server will be disabled, and it will also have a smaller player count then the new versions of the islands.

    Q: How long can I play on the beta islands?
    A: As long as you like. However, the beta islands will not receive new features or content. Think of it as an archived version of the way Skybounds is as of next Thursday.

    Q: Savage ranks can bring over their island... that's not fair!
    A: Imported islands only bring over the structure of an island. Items and some blocks (will be revealed on Monday), will not be imported with the island. We have to limit this feature to this rank because of all the islands that would be imported otherwise. Even if you're not importing an island, you'll always be able to access your current island with all your stuff on the beta islands.

    Q: Can I still Prestige on the beta islands?
    A:
    Not quite. If you're close to prestige, we'll give you a spinner to roll to prestige you, otherwise, you will never be able to go above Lvl 50 on the beta islands. Your prestige will be kept between the beta and release, however.

    Q: Can I use an Orb of Dimensions on the Beta Islands?
    A: Yes. However, you'll only be able to claim your items on the same server type as you used the orb on. For example, using an Orb of Dimensions on TFI: Beta would only allow you to claim the items on other beta islands. While using an orb on TFI: New, would only be claimable on the new version of other islands.

    Question not here? Check the topics I linked above or ask us on our Discord. We're happy to help!

    Extended Sale

    @BrightSkies no, you won't be able to. You can only orb items from one beta island to the other beta island, with the same being for the new islands.

    So i your kits and ikits get transferred, would they be lost on the beta islands, or is skybounds going to duplicate your ikits?

    About the Prestige Spinner, what are the chances (or about %), and does the chance get higher the closer you are to level 50?

    if you roll a prestige token and lose, then go back to beta islands and prestige there, will you get your prestige on the new islands?

    Will we get all unlocked immortal kits on ALL islands? I have a Santa shard on robots but I play on ancient. Is it worth opening it there?
