The lite only has required textures, the full is our entire texture pack. The server is now unwhitelisted. May the odds be ever in your favor or something.

Hello @​everyone! The temp server is *almost* done. We are just waiting on a few things to finish up. You can look on the dynmap to see the world rendering right now. Right now the main features on it are **factions**, **mcmmo**, **guns **and most importantly **smoothcraft* and mechs**. The main way to get smoothcraft ships are to craft them from materials that you gather in the world, including resources like diamonds, iron and other valuables. * Smoothcraft is a new version of space ships that are able to move in any direction and fly like space ships in a lot of other games. Smoothcraft ships have different sub types, speeds, guns, shields and most importantly aesthetics. *** Release will be delayed until Friday, most likely. I work thursday and will have to finish thursday night

However, we are too busy at the moment to release the temp server with a custom map with our current planned release date of the test server (thursday) We have collected a short list of premade maps that you can vote on :) 🇦 : https://www.reddit.com/r/Worldpainter/comments/e63onq/le_monde_part_deux_12k_by_15k_gigantic_survival/ 🇧 : an earth map. https://earth.motfe.net/2019/01/02/downloads/ (1:2000 scale) 🇨 : https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/the-turtles-burden---a-terry-pratchetts-discworld-inspired-map-survival-and-110-ready/ 🇩 : https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/drehmal-v2-prim-rdial-12k-x-12k-survival-adventure-map/ 🇪 : https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/azorzeia---gardens-of-the-wild-6km-by-6km-survival-map/ \**The first two are the most updated, and would have the most recent official minecraft included content **Poll is closed** 🇦 has won!

Hi @​everyone, We have decided the following. The chosen main plan is `B. We continue to try to push out the update as planned, but SQ will temporarily switch its main server to something else for the mean time, something easier for staff to maintain.` The chosen reset decision `yes` The reason we chose this was because of the lack of balance in the current version. Everyone in the 3 main big towns has near enough materials to do anything we implement and have tons leftover, along with the ability to gather resources insanely fast even if you don't have those resources on hand **Also, the main server will come back online for about a week~ before the main update so you can prepare your ship to take over to the reset** Items carried over: `A: only empty inventories and ships carried over. Players would fly their ship of choice over to the new space world, however the inventories would be wiped. This means NO SHIP OR PLAYER INVENTORIES` The reason we chose this was because of the over abundance of resources that everyone has. We still want you to be able to carry something over even if its not your entire base. (Unless you can make your entire city fly or something lol. Yeah yeah, I know you'll make a giant ball of ships as a big ship. We expect this lol. Also resource blocks wont be allowed on the ships you take over (excluding those in modules) Currency choice: `Stick with a digital currency` The reason for this was so that we dont discourage players from playing still, as adding physical currency would be neat, in practice it sounds less favorable to noobs Map choice: `3. Custom map factions server, 15k x 15k size (may change), smoothcraft aircraft with various ordinances would be the main weapon of choice.`

Holo is being carried over to the update BTW, so any ship designs you really like you can put in your holo :)

@​everyone We have made a patreon! :) Right now the premium benefits listed are not automated so you will need to ask me to give it to you. We are still working on a logo and cover art and will be rewriting the descriptions and benefits as the next few days pass https://www.patreon.com/StarQuestMinecraft Right now the plan for tomorrow is to prepare the main server for switching over to the temp server after 24h passed after the poll above

Hi, this is a weird time to become a director lol Right now, the plan is to try to carry out the existing plans we have already set. Here are read only copies of the two design pages we were going off of. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wJVlU3gz83QIvJLt3dIRE_FPV6Mn-rUyBy94fvWSXCg/edit?usp=sharing https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Khf6aVKII53BvOJLoK95L2nZmjsQpo-hmsPIh1bf-zI/edit?usp=sharing These documents are still a very rough draft, and are not to be deemed the set plan. The amount of planets, names and everything will probably change at some point. I'm showing these to you guys to let you know we have been planning, and will continue to plan, however we do not have the time to code these updates or prepare them in a timely manner. I will let you, the community give us feed back on where to go from here. Right now, the current ideas are A. We continue to try to push out the update as planned. This is an unknown amount of time, SQ stays up as it is. B. We continue to try to push out the update as planned, but SQ will temporarily switch its main server to something else for the mean time, something easier for staff to maintain. C. Suggest something in #starquest-chat :) If you chose B, please look at the options below that we have thought of. 1. Survival server with generic plugins such as mob arena, mcmmo, etc, maybe carry over some SQ plugins such as smoothcraft once its finished 2. Custom map towny, ground ships and smoothcraft. Mcmmo, mob arena, etc. Would be focusing on the survival part 3. Custom map factions server, 20k x 20k size (may change), smoothcraft aircraft with various ordinances would be the main weapon of choice. 4. Factions server based on a pre-existing made Earth map of something like 1:100 scale or similar 5. 2B2T Style server, smoothcraft and guns included. May be put on the earth map 6. Something else, suggest it :) * all existing worlds will be available for download

Hello @​everyone. I am very sad to say I am stepping down from SQ as director. Unfortunately, I am too busy to properly give SQ what it needs to grow, as much as I wish I could. With classes coming and the reality of a job I simply don't have enough time to focus on SQ. Any development and big changes to the existing server will be delayed significantly. With that being said, there is no one more worthy of position as the new director, no one more devoted to the future of SQ, no one who cares more about this community than @player_displayname. I pass my baton over to him with full trust, and I hope you all know that he was behind many of the good things that have come to the server in the past few years. I trust him with my life. From here on out, it's up to Sea what the future of the game will look like. However, we are taking community suggestions, which you can post in the "starquest-chat". We'll be listening to what you have to say, so feel free to give your feedback there! Lastly, I'd like to give one big congratulations to @player_displayname. Please give him a warm welcome, because he definitely deserves it! Anyways, signing off, bleeding blue, and wishing the best for StarQuest, this is Pair signing off. <:StarQuest:255765954309390336>
