Ladies, Gentlemen, Slugdug: We are proud to announce Octopia is transitioning to a full 1.8 map. Over the last year we've had more than seven thousand unique players log on and more than a hundred regulars. More than five millions blocks have been placed, dug up or smelted; all of this comes together into one seriously chewed up map. Time for a restart. Some new map benefits: Over 22,000 meters wide -- that's a lot of build room All new terrain types: Mega Taiga, Bryce Mesa, more New block types, from andesite to gravel. Ungriefed structures, including Ocean Monuments Complete inventory restart: No "OP" equipment Notes: Current donators will keep their perks, with some minor changes due to plugin compatibility issues. The Gentlemen's Club will be copied over, so explorers may unexpectedly come across a very nice surprise. The economy is also being reset, so you will start with $0. There will be a world download of the current world in about a week or two. Please don't break/burn/explode the current map. Make sure you note down the coordinates of any places you would want to revisit. The new map is expected to go live 8pm GMT / 2pm Central Time for all players to log in. For any questions or concerns please see a Staff member online. Looking forward to seeing you there. Merry Christmas!
