Greetings, and don't panic just yet. With 1.13 already out, we intend on updating as soon as plugins and such will be stable and lag won't be as severe. Due to the extensive change to the ocean biome, we will have to reset our map or leave barren gravel wastes and miss out on all the opportunity. With a reset comes the loss of buildings and items, however we know everyone works hard to gain and retain their gear and homes, so we are offering a safe haven.
There is a warp sign at spawn near to the entrance tunnel that will take you to a chest room. You will be given three double chests to lock as your own (all stacked atop eachother). Inventories and enderchests will be cleared, so ensure you gather all of your items you'd like to keep in your chests. Feel free to use shulker boxes to hold even more items, as they compact a single chest worth of items into a single space.
NOTE: If you lock more than three chests you will be banned from the storage area and all stored items may be lost. We will expand the storage area to accomodate all players as the need arises.
We will announce the date the server reset will happen a week or two in advance to the event, so everyone can continue to play normally right up to the reset and not be concerned about losing their inventory suddenly. The storage area will be open starting August 3rd and stay open long after we reset and update.
Until then, have fun and play like normal, and we'll keep you updated on all happenings.
