    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 World Downloader.

    TL;DR
    • Beta worlds occupy server space that we can use for other things. Less than 10 online player avg. per beta world and we have 2 major releases coming before the end of the year.
    • The beta islands will be shutdown on November 1st, 2017.
    • If you want a copy of your island or friend's islands, use World Downloader or a similar mod
    • All kits and unlocked immortal kits obtained before September 30th, and ranks will be available on the new Skybounds worlds
    • Moving items, Stars, or other special items from the beta worlds is not available

    If you have any questions, let us know!

    Ok this makes sense. I got on betafirst last night and found myself the only person online so I could literally just run around without a care. But it was also quite boring, and you're right they're a waste of space at the moment.

    But my island, I spent months on it.

    I'm not exactly ready to say goodbye to it, and I'm not able to get on minecraft for a while, I'm mostly stuck in my bedroom due to foot surgery. I guess I'll try my best to find a way to get my computer set up.
