Old Worlds from Remypas.com

Some returning players have asked me whether I have copies of the old worlds that they played in before the down time. I do have some, although I don't think it is a complete set Sad , and I've finally come up with a plan for them. More about that at the bottom.

Here is a list of the worlds I have:-

  • Warworld - April 2012
  • The vanilla 1.8 world that we ran for a bit in 2014 - during the long wait for the 1.8 bukkit/spigot server.
  • "town_removed_10-03-14" - I think this is a version of Venice - not sure which one.
  • "survival_09_05_2013" - This looks like a world that was closed in May 2013 (from the file dates)
  • "survival_the_end" - I'm not sure which end this is, the file dates are April 2015
  • Spawnworld - This one is one of the oldest, from before my time; file dates are Jan 2012. The files are in a different format to the usual ones, so it may not even load... There may be a way to convert them, who knows?
  • A set of worlds from March '14 - which includes adventure, creative1, creative2, survival, a nether, The End, and "town" (maybe another copy of venice)
  • "old_survival (retired_26_Jan_15)" - includes survival, nether, end, venice, a vault, and a world called "war" (maybe a BOTM world?)
  • Jewelcraft1
  • halloween_2012
  • halloween_2013
  • first adventure - files dates are 2013/14
  • Creative1 - not sure how old this is, file dates are 2011 - 2013, with some of the files in the old region format
  • "creative_14-2-14"
  • "creative_08-19-2013"
  • BuildWorld - another really old one, file dates are 2011/2
  • "Adventure_World_13-12-04"
  • "backup of 1.7 surv" - I think this was the world in play when the old server closed.



Unfortunately the server does not have the resources to keep all of these worlds loaded and available, but what I am thinking is that I will load a world or two onto the creative server, and they will be available for all to look around for their favourite builds and trips down memory lane. We could even look at saving some of the best builds by using World Edit to put them into the current creative worlds.

Post your request for worlds to load up in the comments.

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

Neat!

I would be happy to have some worlds. Would you be willing to create a download thing so I can load them up in a Single Player? If so that would be amazing!!!

I have the first and second survival worlds of remypas (beta 1.7 and 1.8 I think)

If anyone has the third or fourth survival if you could give me those I would be very very happy lol. I'll see what I can do to get the worlds on here from my part lol

EDIT: Spawn World is the third one!!!! If I could have that and creative 1&2 my life (in minecraft) would be complete lol

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

Interesting, sounds like you have a couple of worlds that I am missing.

Are you able to put the files somewhere online so that I can download copies to the server?

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

I think Creative1 would be interesting to see, since it seems to be one of the oldest there. Also survival_09_05_2013, as I have a hunch as to what world it might be.

Thanks Biggrin

Remy told me a long time ago that the 2012 survival world files were corrupted and were lost forever.

If it's possible, I would like to download all the worlds and see if I can find my old builds. Just to look around

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

What I am proposing, is to load the olds worlds - no more than a couple at once - onto the server, so that we can share the nostalgia (rather than doing it in private).

I started this thread to have a discussion about which world(s) I should start with. So far it seems that creative1 is in the lead for having the most interest, but at only 2 votes, it could easily be passed...

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

Survival five was my favorite one. Personally I think it'd be the most interesting map if its one of those ones you listed up there. The old Survival worlds went as follows to my memory -

Survival 1 - Before my time

Survival 2 - Before my time

Survival 3 - Before my time (I have seen the old map of this world though, it was the one where nothing was protected unless connected to a road.)

Survival 4 - When I joined. This map had a large spawn that covered the entirety of a mountain with spawn-shops lining it.

Survival 5 - This is when many Veteran Staff members quit including players like Xan, Thor, Dooz, etc. This was probably the longest-lasting Survival that I've been a part of; Remy kept it around so long a new spawnpoint was built so people would have more space to build their houses. On a side note this was also when Jabel joined (or at least when I first met him.)

Survival 6 - This was the Gods Survival where spawns were very spread out so player contact was pretty minimal. I believe towns were named after Animals or something. (Also this Survival hosts my favorite "funny moment" where Lehmad was trying to make an iron grinder by luring a baby zombie from thousands of blocks away.)

Survival 7 - Survival Seven was the first time Jabel took over as Owner. The spawn building was a small pyramid shape.

Survival 8 - I honestly don't remember much about this one. I remember building a Swamp Base that dug all the way down to bedrock. I do distinctly remember this map was different from Survival Seven because I was living in some half-finished tree thing there.

Now here's where things get tricky. My mind is telling me there was something else here but for the life of me I can't remember what it was or could've been. It seems we either had some Survival Nine that I just forgot about or we're currently on Survival Nine

I think around January I was trying to push a new naming system based on the current Owner at each Survival's given time. To reflect this, Survivals One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Six would be called R-1, R-2, R-3, R-4, R-5, and R-6 respectively then Survivals Seven, Eight, and Nine would be called J-1, J-2, and J-3 respectively. (The "R"s represent Remy and the "J"s represent Jabel.) This never really caught on though so it's just how I view them in my head sometimes haha.

TL:DR - If you don't feel like reading this mess it doesn't really matter; it's just for people who are interested.

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

A fascinating list that Shul. Thx for posting it.

I had thought my first survival was the forth on RemyPas, though by your reckoning it was the fifth. I guess once/if we can collect a full set of worlds, we can write the definitive list Smile

Surv 4 sounds like it is the one I heard referred to as having a "Citadel", it was before my time, but I'd be interested to see it.

Surv 5 - My first. As far as I can remember, you were one of the first players I interacted with - once I had grown tired of the delights of single player mode, and ventured online - although you were called mwm-something-something-something-else then. I can't remember how I discovered the server, but it was the first one I logged onto, and I've stayed with it ever since.

I remember Thor and Doozer, though I'm not sure about Xan. I remember Thor trying to get my head in my first survival, but I had already sealed my glass towers, so he was left riding up and down the waterfalls I built off one of them, with me taunting him - "I can see you're using my showers, which is good, I can smell you from here!" Lol.

The spawns in Surv 6 were named after big cats. The spawn that I was based at was called Leopard, and I think there was a Lynx, Lion & Tiger? (although I'm far from sure on the last three.

Survival's 7 & 8 on your list were still during the time that Remy was the official "Owner" - as in he was paying the bills - although we weren't seeing much of him by then.

Surv 7 had two spawns: Aztec - which had a pyramid spawn built by Darron - and Greek - who's spawn was built by Jewce (as far as I recall). It also had the shared Venice area for shops, and the post-office mini-game - of my own devising. (With a room full of Command Blocks powering each base.)

I believe it was Surv 8 that was in play when the old Server went offline - although I really can't remember much about the spawn(s) or other setup.

There were also a few interim worlds - between survivals - that were run in survival mode. I remember one around Halloween one year, where Remy kept changing the plugins on us; one day there was a disease/plague and then Vampires... I also remember the city world we had - the whole thing was plugin generated, and I'd love to do something based on another city world in the future.

As far as I can remember, I first rented this new server in June 2015, with game servers coming online later in the year, and so you should probably only count me as Owner from then.

Ahahahaaha that was great!

"Surv 4 sounds like it is the one I heard referred to as having a "Citadel", it was before my time, but I'd be interested to see it."
That is my personal favorite map due to the world itself. Sadly this was the one I believe Remy lost.

I remember hearing a lot of rumors about you going around hunting people kind of like how Squid did back in Survival three and four, Lehmad. Is that why? Haha.

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

Haha that is true. I hunted and raged quite a bit.

But I really enjoyed it mainly because all of my friends were playing on the server at the time (Squid_Food, cantfxstupid, epic(something), Queenelf, jedigunar, sqd(something)) and everything was new to me. I will admit the first two survivals I played on had a strong, great community that I feel has died since then, sad to say.

Haven't seen the worlds since

I'm planning to host them on the server - with all building blocked to preserve them, so that we can share the nostalgia they generate.

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

I don't quite remember which world I first started with.

I'm assuming it was the creative world from december 2012? That's when I joined.

It was the one where at spawn you'd push a button and it would give you a stack of the block that was shown above.

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

Since I've been here for a while, I think I'll know most of the worlds (though I did go on hiatus for a bit back in 2014, so I'm not completely clear on what the worlds were then). I know I made a lot of memories in each world though, and seeing them along with other players would definitely be fun. Do you know when they'll be hosted on the server? (just out of curiosity)

Re: Old Worlds from Remypas.com

I would love to see all the old worlds because I'm pretty sure Remy put them up for download ages ago with the old server but unfortunately I don't have them anymore because I have a new computer. It would be amazing to try and find all the builds I created in creative and even in survival.
