First off, after months of reverse engineering, [Codemaster] Saitaku and I have unpacked the custom code (several thousand lines of it) that have supported Free World since the reset earlier this year under [Retired Owner] Marc.
And so, without further adieu, I introduce the first (of many) return of a feature we all loved:
The /back command!
Now mining and adventuring will be that much more fun. :-) Free to all players of Free World, the /back command will return you to the location from which you most recently teleported. The command even works across worlds.
Now, what good is this handy command if we didn’t have an awesome new place to use it?
Allow me to introduce Harvest, a world of renewed adventure! Harvest is the land of refreshed resources… a small patch of untouched Minecraft over world ripe for the the mining, foresting and exploring!
But Harvest is shifty… As an inter dimensional plane that only temporarily intersects our own, Harvest will randomly reset completely! What’s more… it will reset set with a randomly sized world… Here’s hoping it isn’t all ocean. Or maybe it will be a world of Ice Spikes! ;-)
As Harvest is in a state of unstable flux with our own dimension, homes & Guardian Fields can’t be set there, and players cannot harm each other…
You might want to work with some friends to get resources and get them fast because the Harvest you know now won’t be there forever. :-D
Harvest is accessed through the portals on Earthdale and will materialize into the Free World event horizon at 10 AM (PST) on Saturday, November 14, 2015.
See you on Harvest!
P.S. Even amidst all this new excitement, there are some things regarding our forums which must be addressed. You may read more about that here.
