Why a new map? Most people will be very unhappy if all their work is gone...

Its a video I made to help promote this server in hope to bring more players to not just this server but to the entire Minetest community.

Please excuse the bad frame rate.

I have been thinking about starting a Minetest lets play. Tell me what you think! Hope you enjoy the video! x)
Love the video! Must have taken a long time :)
You could upload it to Vimeo or some other website so people in Germany ect. can watch it!

A new map would be a very bad idea. There are so many good and impressive buildings on the map that would else get lost. If new features are added, there ought to be crafting receipes for them (i.e. jungletree saplings - those would be great!). There's still no sight of Redcrab.

It would be cool if there was a way to grab the data of specific block/buildings and then you could move them to the new map. But untill that happens then NOOO NEW MAP D;

Such a "grab data from one map and transfer it to another" method would be great. It may even be pretty easy to implement - after all, most that would be required would be to rewrite indices in a database and transfer the data to another one. The trouble is that identifying the chunks you want to transfer is a bit...difficult. If you have any ideas regarding that, please tell us (maybe in an extra topic).

For this particular server, however, such a method would be useless. The map of Redcrabs server is huge! Not only in data size (that would be less of a problem), but also in area covered and amount of good buildings. What could be dropped would be scenery where players only ran along to grab papyrus and clay. Provided those chunks could be identified.

Joining maps/transfering good buildings to a new map is something of intrest for much smaller servers. Some of them may do with worldedit. Some have a slightly larger map and might profit from a map-copy-program.

Well, it might be possible to bring buildings to new maps. IMO the main problem is to intergrate the old buildings into the new landscape. For example Soko's crafting school: Some parts of it a re under earth, now if you copy it to a new map, some parts which have been under earth then are above earth, and vice-versa. Many buildings are just too much integrated into the landscape around them.

Making new map will waist one of the best and maybe the biggest map existing in the minetest community. Also, it is more then 10GB so redcrab will not make anywhere to download. For most people, this map is the only reason they play on this server. So NEVER delete this map. also, redcrab clearly said that he has enough space for the map and there will be way more if we delete the test server so I see no reason to ever delete this map.
I have stopped playing minetest, and may not come back to it again. I would like to thank everyone that made the amazing time I had playing it.

Thank you very much for the great experience.

The map is very big, it is around 10GB which is alot, this dose cause lag problems.
I suppose we could just save all of the important parts with worldedit.

This map is big but there is exact copy of this map a while ago in port 30402, taking up more than 10GB. If there was players on there, it would cause some lag too so I think resetting or shutting down other very unused server by redcrab will help make lag smaller. Also, there is countless buildings spread around everywhere so it may take very long time to copy all buildings. if we miss anything, someone is going to be mad.

They updated the central map. I can see my house (well my space station and half of my house) and the railway. They did not update the north map; the railway is not visible on that one. I am not sure about the other seven regions.

There is most chance redcrab will pay attention today or sometime soon. Because of privacy issues, I can not tell you why I know this, but he should have remembered us by 9/15/2013. At 26-Aug-2013 20:48:40 EDT, there was the most chance he remembered about existence of minetest. This is just an simple guess so do not rely on this information.

What does it mean when the map updates!?
Does it mean the buildings and everything get destroyed?

We need oOChainLynxOo to play on this server again. Ever since his activity with Minetest lowered, community activity itself lowered.

Chainlynx has started playing on this server again a few weeks ago.
If you look on his YT channel, he has started playing MC again.
