ANNOUNCEMENT: Merger Update

Prizzianna Senior-Admin posted Apr 13, 18

I would like to give all of you a current update on the Toasty/DeVco merger based on our many hours in discussion so you can all be well informed as to what is going on. The main topics for finalization were Point/Token conversion ratio, Merger Timeline, DeVcoCity shops, Staff Integration, Kits, Plugin's, and Servers that will move/merge/close.

Points:

We have worked out the details for the DeVco Points to Toasty Token conversion and a Donator Rank translation table. The details will be revealed during the final week of the merge to prevent exploitation (DeVco is getting a good deal on this :) )

Timeline for Merger:

A lot of work is being placed on Kai to finish up many things for the merge to happen. Among these are global chat and system-wide tokens before we merge. Our estimate will be no later than the End of May.

DeVcoCity and Shops:

For the servers moving that already have a DeVcoCity, it will remain as it is. Toasty likes the idea of shops and are looking into creating them for all servers (well, they will probably change the city name). So no need to close down shop.

Staff Integration:

As of today, the Admin level staff will be integrating with the Toasty staff. They will be learning the way Toasty handles their issues and reports. They will still be full-time DeVco Admins but will be spending their extra time learning the ropes to better handle your questions and issues after the move.

Kits:

Since toasty did not have regular kits like we do, we've been working on modifications to match up with their kits. The Admins have been preparing our servers with the Toasty kits for a faster transition.


Plug-in's:

As noted above, Kai has been working madly converting facets of Toasty to blend with some of our better ideas like gobal Chat and a server-wide Token system that would match up to our point system. That being said, all of the other plugin's you will be very familiar with as we have the same ones.

Servers:

This is the final list on which DeVco servers will be moving (no changes for players except address change), merging (will need to use BetterRelocation), and Closing. A lot of thought went into these decisions based on current level of play and the future of 1.12 servers coming out, and the expense of operating servers.
    Servers Moving (Address change or use the ToastyNetworks Launcher):
        Agarian Skies 2
        CrackPack
        Infinity NA
        Infinity EU
        Infinity Expert
        Infinity Skyblock NA
        Infinity Skyblock EU
        Project Ozone 2 NA
        Project Ozone 2 EU
        Regrowth
        Revelation
        SkyFactory 3 NA
        Skyfactory 3 EU
        Space Astronomy
        Vanilla
        
    Servers Merging (you will be able to pack your items and move using BetterRelocation):
        Beyond
        Tekkit Legends
        
    Servers Closing (this will happen on the final week):
        Direwolf20 1.7.10
        Direwolf20 1.10.2
        Hermitpack
        Hub
        Resonant Rise 4
        SkyFactory 2
        
Toasty will be adding an additional DW20 1.12 server on the EU side and working on more 1.12 servers to bring in. I will update you early next month as to where we are in making the transition.


Thank You for your Patience during this transition,

Rempala vipvip Wonder whats going to happen to the people that has a paid rank on both networks.
TheFourGods I have noticed that you mentioned that Toasty has their own launcher where would I get that at and would it be possible ...
EIlen vip What about posting review for points/chunkloaders, will they be taken out?

There have been some rumors passing around and I would like to address them here to keep the DeVco Players up-to-date on current events.  The beginning of this month the owner of DeVco (Devryb) announced to the DeVco staff of the sale of DeVco to ToastyNetworks.

Since that time the OPS Team (Axle2005, BeavisBuilder and I) have been working directly with the ToastyNetworks OPS Team; Owner Rubbertjuh , and his operational staff. We have very similar systems and the way we operate are the same with a few minor bumps in the road. We are trying our best to make the transition as fluid as possible so it will not disturb your game play. DeVco has many things to offer that Toasty will pick up and vice-versa.  We are still working out details on Points, in-Game currency, and perks (such as VIP Ranks). We will strive that these issues will not be a severe impact on anyone. ToastyNetworks are excited about this merger as the DeVco Community (that means all of you) are awesome with great player orientation and maturity that will help solidify and improve their community as well.

The timeline for a complete merger is still being worked out but should wrap up no later than the end of May.

What Does This Mean For You?

ToastyNetworks currently operate some of the same servers as we do: Revelation, Beyond, Infinity, SF3, and Tekkit. They also run DW20 -1.12 which was on our next server list. Devco adds to their base servers with packs that are new to them.

How does this change impact you? For the immediate future, there will be NO changes in address, play or staff. At a later date the only difference will be a network address change e.g. rev.toastynetworks.net. Once we merge the two systems, your rank, points, and currency will be converted to the combined system. Everything else will still be there.

Many of DeVco plugins will be the same as Kai has also supported Toasty so this will make us feel right at home.  ALL of the DeVco Staff team will be moving as well. Our rank names will be new, but they will be functioning with the same roles. The Toasty team are a great bunch of folks to be in game with and work with. Their staff strives to meet the same goals for players as we do, so this should be a very smooth transition.

Having a new home at ToastyNetworks is a very positive thing for all of us at DeVco when you consider alternatives other servers have done and just shut their doors. Much appreciation for Devryb and Rubbertjuh for finding this solution to keep us alive and well along with all the hard work you have placed into your builds.

Feel free to check them out: https://forum.toastynetworks.net/  If you use their Toasty launcher, it will automatically update your version to the current version along with all the perks found here: https://forum.toastynetworks.net/resources/toastynetworks-launcher-universal.23/

 

Conclusion:

After working with the ToastyNetwork Team over the last month and many hours, I believe this to be a great fit and advantage for the Players and Staff at DeVco.  The bottom line is having FUN, and I believe once the transition is completed you all will enjoy the changes. If you have any specific questions, please post in the Merger Q & A located in the DeVco Forums here or more details on the Toasty Forum here: https://forum.toastynetworks.net/faq/devco-acquisition.5/category

For the Subscriber VIP’s you may have received a cancellation letter. This was to change the direction of the payments from Devryb’s account to the Toasty account. Your perks remain intact and all you need to do is re-subscribe.

Faithfully Yours,
