    Hello everyone,
    After reviewing everyone's feedback on the Voice of the Server survey, I have made some very big (and exciting!) changes to Applecraft this weekend.

    NEW 1.14.3 WORLD: PURPLE!
    Do /purple to access the world.
    You must be running the 1.14.3 client.
    Purple features Keep Inventory, claims, and epic items!

    NEW SERVER HARDWARE!
    I have bought a new dedicated server for Applecraft.
    Over the next week I will be migrating Red and Blue to the new machine.
    The new machine will help improve overall server lag.

    WILDERNESS MIGRATION
    Unfortunately, we will be closing the Wilderness server on the 31st of July.
    All Wilderness players will be able to transfer all their belongings to the Red server (which is more PVP/raiding focused than Purple and Blue).
    A full explanation & FAQ regarding the migration is HERE.

    OTHER FAQ'S

    When will Blue and Red update?
    Blue and Red will update as soon as possible, most likely within the next week or two after we confirm that Purple is stable. When Red and Blue update to 1.14 their borders will be expanded to generate 1.14 chunks.

    Why did you open Purple?
    I opened Purple to ease some of the pressure on the Blue server, which regularly has more than 100 players online at a single time. I also wanted a fresh 1.14 world with new villages and terrain generation.

    Are Blue and Red closing?
    Blue and Red will never close.
    The Blue, Red, and new Purple server are intended to be long-term servers and will not be reset.

    When will the Warrior crate be released?
    As I spent most of this weekend updating the Purple world, the Warrior crate will be delayed by 1 - 2 days. :(

    Sad to see Wilderness go. Farewell to the niche community we had.

    Happy to see Purple, though. Blue has been quite cluttered.

    The point of Purple to reduce the clutter on Blue.Think of it as an alternate Blue, rather than a replacement.

    @salmon_man24 We are definitely considering this in the future, but it won't be done until the Wilderness has migrated.

    I wouldn't mind if purple was its own separate world all together. What I like about the new world is that it's new. So noone is established

    The Wilderness removal makes no sense...its a unique gameplay style that is not seen very often, it has a big playerbase and people devoted their time to this server only for you to put it down? Why not make the rules more strict or install anti-cheat plugins instead of simply removing a big portion of your playerbase? Do you honestly think that people will migrate as if nothing happened?

    It is applecraft's decision. But, for now you can still play on the server. Sometimes we just have to move on. Hopefully in the future we will get an exciting play style like this. :) + All items will be transferred to Red. Which isn't' that different in my opinion.

    Must have been a pain to transfer all that world and player data. Lol

    Purple is one of my new favourite worlds, and it's only been out for 2 days. As you guys said, it's way less cluttered, and it's a fresh start! Thanks for the world!

    It would expose purple to blues economy. I just think it should stay independent
