    Goooood afternoon or evening or morning (wherever you are). So, we have received a lot of feedback regarding the map wipe at 3pm EST today (which, if you've been on server, hasn't happened yet - that's cause I'm slow and old).

    The goal was to reset the map *prior* to official lore start. This way, we don't have to touch it again (in a significant way) for the rest of the lore, and everyone can play and be happy. We have heard that some folks do not like the time of day because of work, school, family etc and some are upset of the same day final notice.

    Another part of the reason for wanting to do it today, is we will have limited technical support this weekend and don't want to have a repeat of last weekend with the map issues. Having said that, the admins have discussed this at length, and hopefully have come up with a plan that will please everyone.

    Starting tonight, I will put the updated map up on the Test Server only. Once that is done (time TBD cause I'm trying to bust out the last part of this thing, but probably in about 3-4 hours), I will give a heads up across New Dawn platforms and turn off the main server temporarily.

    This is to basically test the load on the map updates to ensure we don't have the same server crash issues from last weekend in a test environment. More players on, the better testing we will have. The whitelist for this limited time event will be OPEN, so you will be able to create your own name (still New Dawn, so keep it clean), join the server and run around. Why do that you say? Sounds boring you say? Au contraire mon frere! Yeah I probably spelled that wrong, whatever.

    ANNOUNCING THE FIRST ANNUAL EL CID TOURNAMENT OF DEATH!!!!

    That's right folks, hop on the test server tonight and go crazy. Mayhem, carnage, killing each other, all guns legal, go crazy! Will there be zombies? Possibly! Could we see the return of Mantismen? WHO KNOWS!?!

    Consider it a official lore start celebration and server load test! Fun for all the kids! I will send out port information in a bit, so hang tight, and if you can join tonight, please do!

    After a couple hours of testing, assuming all goes well, I will switch things back to main server, and perform the map wipe TOMORROW at 3pm EST. This will give folks more time to gather their things. We will also respawn items if anyone is unable to grab it prior to then. Hope this is a happy solution for everyone, feel free to ask questions below.

    *Traumatic Flashbacks ensue* The Mantismen...do I got stories to tell about those fuckers. Yeah I was there in the bunker, we all were. Scared, terrified even. None of us wanted to sliced into shreds, so we hid, things didn't start off so bad that lore. Just some creepy shit every so often, then it got so bad that you were cuddling your Big Hiking Bag for comfort at night, holding whatever firearm you were able to find on a corpse. Times were tough, things were strange, people fucking died! Dark days those were, but I must say it's what's made me the roleplayer I am today. Sometimes I still hear that skittering in my nightmares. At times I think that it's possible it was from that acid I did that one time that I got from Acid Face. All. Totally. Worth. It.
    (Any other grizzled vets from those dark days, leave your horrors below.)

    Don't even get me started on when MindGate Ran over my dog in the street, had it hopping with broken legs over to me wagging its tail, then finished it off by RUNNING OVER IT AGAIN.

    Ok @Project Zomboid Members Test Server with updated map is now live! Anyone who can, please hop on, run around and cause mayhem. No Whitelisting needed for this. Also, to access server, you just need to change the port to 16326 on your login:
