April Fools 2021 – The Purge


For this year’s April Fools, we are doing another “Purge” event (like the one before Zeta opened), where players can grief and blow up the worlds to their heart’s content. The differences this time is that this event will be held on the beta server, and we will have controlled explosions.

What does “controlled explosions” mean? Instead of letting everyone use TNT to blow up multiple locations at the same time, the use of TNT will be granted by staff to only a few members at a time and for one location at a time. This will help ensure that the server doesn’t crash from lag, and that the event lasts for hopefully several hours, not minutes. There will be some coordination required between staff and members in ensuring everyone gets a turn with TNT and deciding which locations to blow and in what order, so it is recommended that you join Discord voicechat to help with this coordination.

The event will begin on Thursday, April 1st at 2pm UTC (7 am PDT), to allow for those in Asian timezones to possibly participate. Main server will be shut down, and beta server will be restarted with increased memory and some configuration changes. We will try to keep the event running as long as possible throughout the day to allow as many people a chance to blow things up, but there’s always a risk that even with controlled explosions, the server may fall over eventually. Once the event is over, beta server will be shut down and main server will be restored, and all builds will return to as if nothing happened.

Beta server is currently shut down for now, but when the event is running, you can connect to it at minecartrapidtransit.net:35565.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact via Discord or email.

Thanks,
Frumple
