All servers have been updated to the latest and greatest on Minecraft 1.16.1; it's time to update your client to discover the Nether Update! There are some important things to note, so please read on.
Many of you will be excited to go down under (no, not to Australia...) and discover what's there, or to mine all of the new material. To help with this, we're introducing three new Nether worlds:
The main one, to explore and build on, takes the form of a new server called Superia. You will find this one directly in the lobby. A spawn area and rails to endpoint cities have been prepared, similar to the other main worlds, and you're also free to take off in any direction as you want. Explosions are temporarily disabled, go to Tasmantis for boom-booms.
Rodinia's Nether has been partly reset to give you access to the newer resources and is now expected to be permanent for building. You'll have to head out at least 512 blocks from spawn to see the new areas.
For your mass mining needs, Tasmantis makes a return with a brand new Nether attached! This is temporary and will be retired when the interest dies down. You're looking to carve out a large area of the world, or you want to gather all of the new Nether materials? Visit Tasmantis first, it's there to be plundered!
Laurasia's existing Nether will be locked down to the current structures to focus on rail transport. Again, for mass Nether mining, visit Tasmantis now! To build, see Superia.
All science areas are now coming offline as they need updates to work properly under the new game version. Further announcements will be made as the areas come back online.
To solve key problems on inventory synchronisation across the survival servers, the entire system has been rewritten from scratch. Something important to note is that the position of all players has been reset to the spawn of each world. You will need to head back home on your own. To help with this, we're making an exception so that the staff will teleport you back home if you ask for it. This can only happen once per server per player. Make sure to set your spawn right after if you haven't already done so!
