    The time has come to say farewell to the current Normal Survival map, with a grand reopening on June 11th at 12:00 pm (noon) EDT!

    We will publish a separate announcement thread with details on the new Normal server, but here is what you need to know for now.

    Is the map being reset?

    Yes. It will have the new Caves and Cliffs terrain and features!

    Will I lose my items, claims, and balance?

    Yes.

    What Minecraft version will the new Normal server use?

    1.18.2.

    Will I be able to download the current map to play in single player?

    Yes. Put all your inventory items into a chest on your claim before the reset, since player inventories will be wiped in the map download. Write down the coordinates of your base so you can find it again.

    Will there be a farewell party for the current Normal server?

    Yes! We will host a farewell tour on June 4 at 12:00 pm (noon) EDT.

    When, exactly, will current Normal be closed?

    The current Normal server will close when the nightly restart happens on June 4th at 2 am EDT.

    Generally, yes.

    When Minecraft makes really big changes, like the Caves and Cliffs update, then the best way to get new terrain and features is to reset the whole world.

    Also, when many players have reached the top rank, they lose interest and then the server loses population. A reset lets everyone start over again in a fresh world with fresh challenges to complete!
