Please keep this as "professional" as you can. If you have real legitimate Questions about the merger with ToastyNetworks, post them here and I will give the best answer that I know. We still have many issues to solve including an actual timeline when the merge can take place. This of course will include servers being up-to-date with toasty plugins (that Kai created) and a timeline when this will take place.

Again, the only effect after the merger most will see will be your rank will change and the method of using "points" will turn to tokens to buy many of the same items. Toasty also have a "crate" key when voting that you may win many items ( I actually won the Ring of Odin :) ). So many new exciting things will take place, not much on the downside at all.

FAQ:
What will happen to my playtime?
Nothing! DeVco players will have their playtime transferred over to Toasty.

What will happen to DeVco donators?
We plan to transfer all DeVco donators onto one of our premium ranks, we do not have any details publicly available yet, but expect a translation table on this later to see which rank you will receive!

DeVco hosts a lot of modpacks, will all of these be transferring over?
The Toasty Administration are currently working with the DeVco Senior Administration on a plan for the server transfer. Detailed information will be released to both networks once this has been finalized.

When will this all be over?
We do not currently have an answer to this question, we are currently working on drafting our more details. When everything is planned, we will work on providing a timeline for you all.

What will happen to DeVco point system?
We plan on converting this to our equivalent currency “Tokens”, we do not currently have a transfer rate set up, this will be discussed more in future.

DeVco has subscriptions, do you plan on adding them in the Toasty store?
Yes, perhaps we will. However, we do not plan to offer ranks as subscriptions. More details on this in the near future.

one thing about subscriptions when you 'say we do not plan to offer ranks as subscriptions' does that mean one time payment kind of things? Also when servers merge e.g say rev merged because they already have rev will it become something like Rev1 and Rev2? also will points value change?

A: They mean there won't be a "Rank" of SVIP and currently they don't do a subscription type of transaction. Some of this is still being worked on and may be a feature at a later date. When the merge, a fewer less populated servers will actually be placed on their server. Kai will move our world to possibly a MV world or since Schematica will be added to the servers, you could copy your base on a temp MV world and place it in a new location. Details are still being worked out, but you won't lose your work/base.

What is the situation with Multiverse worlds, does Toasty offer something similar to this, or will they just transfer over?

A; Whoa Mynx! Great question that it seems we overlooked. They do not have anything like that at the moment but Rubbert likes the idea. We'll discuss this one in our next meeting. This is the kind of great questions to get that helps find items we may have overlooked! I'll update when we figure it out.

What will be happening regarding banned items, since in one of the above posts you have claimed peoples bases will come with them, however there are some slight differences in banned items which people on DeVco might have intergreted into their automation (for example Toasty have both the "Block Breaker" and "Vanilla Dispenser" banned on Tekkit Legends) which I am sure someone has found a way to automate it to do something.

A: Some of that has yet to be worked out along with some Item ID's may not match (this would be for the merged servers). The servers that will port straight over should be OK but I'll add this to the list. Thanks again :)

How will the transfer of the servers dev has and toasty does too? dont see a way in which it would transfer nicely. what would be the approach there? which overworld will be overwritten, or will there be a second server with dev's versions?

A: Most of the servers will be just as they are with the additional plug-in's and economy changes. The "Merged" servers will be more of either it's own MV on the Toasty server, or an actual move of bases using Schematica. We've yet to determine exactly how but rest assured, you won't lose your work.

Will both vanilla servers be moving over, or just the one? Also, if the vanilla servers move over would it be best to have a new map on the basis that both the current ones (especially 1.8.9) have completely been griefed around the spawns giving a bad impression to the players at toasty who maybe interested in playing there?

A; LOL.. well if you haven't noticed, the Vanilla 1.11 server was removed over 2 months ago due to lack of use :) The Vanilla 1.8 will be moved over as it will be a new server for Toasty. I'll bring up the idea of possibly starting over as a refresh or maybe allowing players to utilize schematica for their bases

If we have already purchased VIP ranks with points will they be transferred over to the Toasty server?

A: Probably not as you currently know it as Toasty does not have a VIP set-up at the moment. We are still hammering out some details on how we will transfer some of these things.

Any idea when the playtime at least will be carried over to the new network?

A: Your time played will be transferred over when the servers actually move (possibly sometime in May). If you are currently playing on toasty, we might be able to merge those times as well (still needs Kai to work it out).

Playtime will get merged when servers move to ToastyNetwork servers. (This of course will have a wonderful announcement and probably a good chunk of outage time for our servers during the move) There is no point in syncing playtime now, as we would just need to redo it again.
