    We've been working hard to ensure Ruinscraft stays relevant in the ever changing Minecraft server ecosystem. It's tough to develop a play experience which keeps new players coming in and old players coming back. We've developed a taste for what's good, and we're going to use that to make Ruinscraft better.

    Say hello to MCAtlas, a Minecraft server of the Earth. We're devoted to make this a unique experience that will be intriguing to new users who may have never played a Ruinscraft server before. We'd like to make it clear that MCAtlas is very much a Ruinscraft server. Although, for gameplay’s sake, it will have some separation.

    Gameplay
    MCAtlas is centered around a realistic 1:1000 scale map of the Earth. As a player in survival mode, you can join a town and work with others to grow your domain, or you can go alone and form your own village. Form nations, create and crumble alliances, or go to war. Gold is the primary currency of the server, so mining and trading it is essential. Please make yourself familiar with the rules which can be found on the MCAtlas website (link below).

    The website
    MCAtlas will have a separate website for gameplay purposes. It will contain features such as: viewing current economy statistics of the server, viewing a live map of the server, viewing Towny statistics, voting for the server (to get gold!), a listing of the rules, and more.

    Visit the website: https://mcatlas.net

    Connecting
    When MCAtlas is released, you will be able to connect to it in a couple different ways. First, you will be able to join the MCAtlas server with the portal on the Ruinscraft Hub or with the command /mcatlas. Second, because we want to make it easy for new players to understand how to join, we have created a new address which you can use to skip the Hub and directly join the MCAtlas server: play.mcatlas.net (this makes it easy for you to invite people too)! MCAtlas is a 1.13 server, but you will be able to connect with the usual Ruinscraft supported Minecraft versions, 1.12-1.14.

    Ranks
    Our goal for MCAtlas is to be fresh and inviting to new players. To embrace this, the server will not have the same donator ranks as our other servers. Any previous purchaser of a Ruinscraft VIP Tier will automatically receive the MCAtlas donator rank (there will be only one) free for lifetime*. We REALLY appreciate our donors. We couldn’t run any of this without you all.

    *In order to receive the MCAtlas donator rank for free, you must have purchased any Ruinscraft VIP Tier before the time of this announcement (if you’re reading this, it’s too late).

    In order to figure out what benefits the donator rank should have in order to be desirable and fair, it will start with no benefits other than a prefix and possibly other chat cosmetics. The rank will not be for purchase until some time after the server launches.

    Launch date
    MCAtlas is ready to go, are you? We are launching the server one week from today, on July 1st!

    Other Ruinscraft updates
    The update to 1.13 for our Plots server last month was a success. It took the hard work of many, many developers in the Minecraft community to pull it off. Notably FastAsyncWorldEdit and PlotSquared (and our modified version of it) were huge undertakings. A few minor issues are still being resolved, but just about everything is now operating as it should on our Plots server. You can view the remaining 1.13 related issues here.

    Our new hub has been received well. We are aware of a FPS stuttering issue on 1.14; hopefully we can resolve this soon. It is recommended to use 1.12.2 or 1.13.2 on our servers.

    See you on the server!

    The thread says it won't be out for a short while. Also, please edit your original posts instead of unnecessarily making new ones in the future.
