The last announcement of 2014 is here. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. It's time for an official announcement about the wipe that will be coming soon. The wipe will happen in early 2015. I don't want to promise an exact date as things can change, however expect the wipe to happen in January/February 2015. A more exact date will be given when available. Money, inventory, and most likely blueprints will be wiped and reset on the server. At the same time as the wipe, the server will officially change map and receive a large update featuring cars, job system changes, etc. As discussed before, your old inventory and money (money for interest sake) will be put into an "archive system". It will work much like the bank does at the moment. You'll be able to withdraw items that have been "unlocked". When the wipe happens, very few (if any) items will be "unlocked". As time goes by, rare items will be unlocked and you will be able to withdraw these items from your archive. Hats will be unlocked first, then other things. We have discussed the roadmap and wipe more here: http://chronet.com/threads/semi-serious-discussion-roadmap-and-moving-forward.3910/ FAQ Why is the server being wiped? The server hasn't been wiped for more than 2 years (Since October 2012 when Chronet started). The server economy is a bit screwed because of this. When we started the RP server we were a DarkRP Lite RP server where it was easy to get guns and other things. We have since changed over to a Semi-Serious server with our own gamemode where to encourage more RP and guns are harder to come by. Since inventories haven't been wiped, guns are still heavily in circulation. By wiping money and inventory, everyone gets to start fresh and we can build the economy up again. Will I get to keep any of my money? No, money will be completly wiped. You will be able to look at your past money in your archive, but will not be allowed to withdraw it. Do I get to keep my hats? Yes and no. You will keep certain hats such as melon hats. We're still looking to how to go about playtime hats. Playtime hats might be reset and given back to players with the appropriate playtime. Do I get to keep rare items such as glue and dual elites, etc Yes, after some time (weeks or months) they will be unlocked in your archive system and you will be able to withdraw them into your inventory. Do I get to keep my studies blueprints? Most likely not, however this is still in discussion. Do I get to keep my playtime? Yes, playtime will not reset. What map will the server change to? This is still in discussion too, however it's most likely to be Rockford (until EvoCity 3 is released). Discuss the map change here: http://chronet.com/threads/semi-serious-discussion-map.3795/ Feel free to PM if you have any questions regarding the wipe. ____________________________________________________________________ And now for the New Year update! Just when you thought there were no more updates for the year - boom (literally), New Year update! The New Year update adds fireworks! Hop on the server and start collecting them (you can find the ingredients in crackers), you will only be able to use the fireworks on New Year's eve and shortly after. Update thread/change log can be found here: http://chronet.com/threads/update-114.4845/ Because there are quite a few fireworks recipes, and we have limited time to find them all. I'm going to encourage people to share recipes they find. You can do so here: http://chronet.com/threads/new-year-event-firework-recipes.4843/ I hope everyone has a awesome New Year's Eve and a great 2015!
