SentinelCraft - Map Transfers
« on: October 05, 2021, 08:32:17 PM »
It's time to get our maps back again!

Dear SentinelCraft community!
 
We've got some excellent news for you, we're going to start the process of getting maps to our survival world again!
Since world edit works again and the bungee trouble is now in the past (or well, we hope), we're happy to get everyone their maps back in the coming months.
In this forum post, we will explain how staff is going to do this and what you, as a player, would need to do in order to get your beautiful map back!

How is staff going to do this?

- We plan on placing maps in the end in both Horizon and Kattalox, and in the void for Fedgardia, as these are areas that can be made are inaccessible for everyone.
We will set up WorldGuard permission for specific players in this region, it will not damage or take up space in the overworld which other ideas would have and allows maps to be better protected.
Players will still create the original maps in flat before we paste them in the end.


- In Horizon and Kattalox we will have a specific maps storage building that holds copies of each map to allow admin+ to be able to give maps if they are either lost by the original owner. We will have to refine our idea on how we are going to name maps and ensure there is enough space for them. This is to ensure maps do not go missing and are easily retrievable for you.

- To save space, maps will be stacked if they are not extremely tall 3d maps, this means it will take up a smaller footprint on the server and gives us a lot of space to be able to paste current maps and future maps.



What do I need to do?
In order to transfer your map, we need you to complete a survey that can be found here! Before you go ahead and complete the survey, please keep in mind the following things;

- When entering the coordinates of the map, please use the following format WITH SPACES ONLY! For example: -124759 16 29480. This allows us to easily copy and paste the coordinates.
- We ask you to enter two coordinates per map, so we can easily select the corners with world edit. If you fail to do so, we will not process your map. It is your responsibility to correctly select the corners for the transfer, else your map might be incomplete.
- Your map cannot be "higher" than 50 blocks. This means that the elevation cannot be more than 50 blocks. For now, our priority is transferring "thin" maps - bigger 3D maps will have a chance to be transferred in the future.
- Maps from the artists charactername111 and Silver_Dragoon1 will be transferred first.
- Transferring these maps is going to be a time-consuming project for the Senior Admin team, we've got jobs, school work and personal matters to attend to! Complaining about the "waiting queue" will get you pushed to the back of the waiting list, though I am sure none of you will complain, right? (pls)
- The queue will be visible for all members, this way you can see if your map has been transferred yet and how many others are before you. You can click here to see the queue.
- Once your map has been transferred, we need you to do your absolute best on keeping horizon maps in horizon, and Kattalox maps in Kattalox. Switching between these servers will break the map and give staff unnecessary jobs to fix it. To make this perfectly clear to you, we ask you to confirm that you've read this on the server - as well as inform your buyers of this fact.
- Maps that you entered to transfer, are made by you. You are not allowed to "hijack" other people's maps to get them transferred, you will need to buy them off the original owner or have permission to transfer them under your name.

We'd like to thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing your beautiful maps on the server again! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them in-game, on discord, or down below!
Smile more, it suits you (:

Update time!

Hello everyone!

I've finished creating schematics for all the maps that have been submitted (which was only done by bugsy, joel and myself...disappointing!) - we will be working on getting them in the survival worlds during the coming weeks. We've also pasted some "server maps" in /casino already, as well as the SentinelCraft logo around spawn - thank you Silver & Chara!

I would like to make some things clear through this post - hopefully I will be seeing more maps in the file during the coming days!

FAQ - Time to clarify!

- Can I request a map that has been built for me by someone else (who might be inactive)?
Yes, as long as you have asked the person (e.g via discord) and sent proof of this (screenshot) to Brenda, you are 100% fine.

- Do I need to write down coordinates per map or can I select the corners of the whole map?
You can select the corners of the WHOLE map, you do not need to section it. In fact, we would prefer the latter. We would appreciate it if you shared the size of it in your map name.
For example, BannerRainbow4x6 would indicate that the banned has a base of 4, and a height of 6 maps.

- Will players be notified when their map is done?
You can look at the queue to see if your map has been transferred yet or if it is in the process of getting transferred. Once it has been transferred, we will either deliver it to one of your /homes OR you need to ask a staff member to get the map from the vault for you. Map artists hold priority over the queue, though you should definitely submit your maps right now as they haven't started putting their maps in yet! ;)

- What if I had someone's map before bungee but it broke?
You need to discuss this with the original owner - art isn't free!

If you have any other questions, please do let us know down below. Looking forward to seeing more maps around the server soon! Time to get rid of the empty item frames :)
Smile more, it suits you (:
