TL;DR: Wipe will happen sometime in the first half of 2017 I'll be honest, I didn't fully think through announcing the wipe in the latest announcement. I brought it up a bit too casually and regret doing so. However here are the facts (many have been mentioned before from other members): 1. The server hasn't been wiped for a long time (the last time the server was wiped was Apr 11, 2015). A lot of players have been playing on the server since 2015, they have everything and are bored. They have nothing to work for anymore. This relates to the next point. 2. New players are often bullied and raided on the server. It's hard to come to a new server where everybody has C4 and assault rifles (and huge stock piles of them too). Wiping the server will put everyone on equal playing ground. 3. Huge changes can be made after the server is wiped. Here are a few changes that can happen if there was a wipe: - New weapon pack (this is very hard to do without a wipe) - Lots of new cars (with general balancing of car prices, etc) - A fuck ton of balancing. Crafting need a huge balance update (Weapons are too easy to make. Certain money making methods are too strong or too weak) - Possibly a new inventory system (drag n drop style - will help with a lot of future items I want to implement) - Big economy updates. My intention for the server has and always will be a full player based economy. This will require a wipe. - Other changes which will require lots of testing and experimenting (such as the prop damage system and other gamemode mechanics that will hugely change gameplay) - A map change is possible, but would have to be thought about very extensively. Put it this way. The wipe will not happen till many of the things above are done. Basically ChronetRP v2. Generally lots of of new content and items will put into the gamemode. A couple of other notes: - Rare items can be kept. Unlike the last wipe, the inventory database structure is far easier to work with now, meaning rare items can be put into a archive/storage of some sort. Items such as Christmas stars, etc will not be lost. Items gained in future events can he kept too. - This is not a quick process and I'd only expect a wipe in Q1 2017 (or basically - when it's done and ready) So regarding the whole December/January time frame for the wipe, that is no longer in effect. The server will be wiped when everything is ready. Innovation is always the key to success. And I honestly think that requires a wipe. In my mind, it will be 100% worth it to every player (new and old). Please use this thread to discuss the wipe. Please only leave constructive criticism that is well thought out. Don't rage and bring unwanted negatively here.
