    With EcoCityCraft being without a developer and myself being unable to code, it looks like the time for updates and changes on ECC has to come to an end. It’s been a long and great 8 years but unfortunately I cannot do the impossible such as writing code and fixing bugs :p My plan is to continue running ECC on 1.12.2 and letting it survive in that fashion. City server will likely be scratched and Main simply be reinstated.

    However I would like to put the main reset idea to a vote still, as resetting it on 1.12.2 is something I am able to do.

    We unfortunately will not be updating to 1.13 as it requires a developer who can put in several hours every single day to make it work with our custom systems.

    We will however have a way for 1.13 clients to join the server.

    Will the administration still be putting on events for the spawn towns and will the new Main be changed like it was going to to be 'updated' and take things out that you didnt think worked well.

    Or will it be essentially the exact same main but with a new map? As it would kinda feel pointless doing a new main if stuff isnt gunna be changed, thought that was a big reason for the change.

    Personally, if you’re not going to update main any further, no reason it should be reset. Just put it back the way it was (if that’s possible) and let people continue to play main.

    I’m going to vote no for a main reset, if City isn’t going to happen.

    Absolutely nothing to do or grind on the server anymore, not motivation to have fun. A full reset WITHOUT STAR CRATES would bring back motivation and fun to grind and achieve on ECC again and probably bring back more old players to be active again. And not to mention the star tool market wont be in the pile of shit that it is now.

    If we reset we would of course make changes like no Star Crates and other things.

    I'd say continue forward with City. Its the next ECC adventure, even if we must remain on 1.12.2.
    I'm more for keeping the community alive tbh which imo means having stuff to do, if Main/Archive is still build-able I don't see why we still can't have City for the next economic focus of ECC.

    Couldn't we just take Star Crates out of old main? xD

    Imma vote no only because i don't really see the point of creating a new map when you could just implement everything new city was gunna have on the old main.
    The biggest reason of making the new map was cause we couldn't update the old one, now we aren't updating, map will be fine. The new world wont have any new biomes, And i don't see why anything that was going to be implemented on new city, couldn't apply to old main. Only thing that might not be able to implement would be no star tools, but you could get around this by potentially blocking them like pump axes have been blocked on melons. Or how the luck7 rod became unusable. From what andrew was hinting, the tools were gunna be lowered rather then removed which again would be possible on old main.
    *shrugs*

    Whatever is easiest:
    a. implement suggestions people wanted for city on old server
    b. Create new main and implement suggestions people wanted.

    Could just remove crates on old main xD

    Voted yes, I've done what there is to do on main and provided City still gets the anticipated changes could be a lot of fun. Not to mention recently we've seen a lot of oldies come back and mention interest in city.

    TBH while i understand how bad 1.13 is if there are never going to be any plans to try to find another dev or update to 1.3 or any future updates. Its a waste of time and money to do any sort of reset or anything really because we wont be getting any new players due to us being on 1.12 i was actually slightly looking forward to the new 1.13 main... but owell Ty for the mostly good 7+ years @andrewkm :).

    What would removing star crates on main do? The damage is already done, there is already a massive amount of star tools the only way to fix it is if you take out star tools which is not happening.

    If main gets reset and star crates are removed what will happen with users who purchased Mojang heads to get the forum medal?

    well if old main would be kept - the new one would be more easier with no star tools and such

    or both without star tools would help
    so i voted yes - if reset - its better
