Endless Horizons is now 1.9
Actually it happened a couple weeks ago, but we are now announcing it because a new world will be generated for 1.9 with new features! Lots of new features :D
However, the old world is not connected - this will be a fresh start. That said...we're offering something different this time. If you built something you want to keep for yourself, log in, write down the world and your coordinates (or ask another player, if this isn't possible for you) and we will (most likely) save it as a schematic for you to download and keep for yourself. Saved builds may also be re-used later, but we are not planning on copying over people's homes or farms and such, unless by popular demand they are deemed EPIC :)
Hopefully come next weekend we'll be all set up so for now let's say next week is the deadline. The staff will be saving the odd build regardless, but if you have somethign specific you want saved, Get Us Those Coordinates!
But, why a new world??? Well, to stress the new perks system and encourage people to take what they've learned and build new things. Plus, it's 1.9 - explore!! Also, this way everyone starts on equal footing - save for Potato who was the first player in the new world and had a head start.
Did I read New Perks System? Oh yes! As you know many servers are overhauling their perks and donation system and EH strives to do one better - not just make the perks accessible to all, but make sure they are still fun! More on the specifics later...
The new system will let you EARN perks based on playtime, voting, Mystery Boxes (!), Quests, mob-drops, achievements and much more. You will also be able to donate to the server for Serverwide Perks that everyone benefits from. We're still working out what some of these will be, but we're not ruling out 24-hour /fly!!
Ohhhhh this is good. This is what I've been working on for the last 6 months - all those times when people asked "Is EH dead? What are you doing??" THIS is what I've been doing :)
How about a little peek at our upcoming perks system? (the full line-up and usage will be posted afterwards)

And much much more! Hey, I said I'd been busy...
Ok, like other servers, we're trying to get away from the Pay-to-Win concept and this is how we think it could work. The exact extent of the changes, as well as specifics, will come later, but here are a few things that will be affected (not all related to P2W changes):
- Donator perks and ranks
- Ingame perks
- Kits and Minigame Kits
...more on these later on. Until we can get everything sorted out, we will be removing the Donator Perks from the Store.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reply here or talk with us ingame. We'll get back to you when we can :)
Thanks for reading and staying with us,
