We're starting to get stable builds of Paper, and Optifine for 1.17 has been out for a bit. I have to go over the plugins and make sure they're compatible, but we're getting close to time to upgrade. I talked about this a bit in the Discord channel, and I finally got around to getting my shit together enough to put up the poll. So, consider your options, make a vote, and let me know here if you have any specific questions about how you want to handle the upgrade. In all cases a backup will be taken of the world just before the upgrade, so we can go back if something goes horribly wrong. The options are as follows: 1) Complete map wipe and restart on the same server Self explanatory; this map goes away, a new one starts. A fresh start is nice every so often, but a lot of you have put a lot of work into building and I don't know if we're ready for a full wipe yet. 2) New map on a different server I spin up a new instance on a different port so the old server remains, but otherwise it's like the above. The instances wouldn't be connected at first, but I could look into cross-server portals (I think that's a thing). 3) Use the existing map on the same server, let new chunks generate at the borders Basically do nothing but upgrade. This gets us started immediately, but we'd have to travel a ways to get to the new stuff. 4) Trim the existing map and let new chunks generate close by Similar to above, but I'd have you all border the chunks you want to keep with walls of some sort, then I'd take the map and remove all chunks that didn't have a border. This will take me some time, but it would mean that new stuff would be immediately available and close by.
