One of the things I've been thinking a lot about as we start to look at the next major update for TF and the Freedom server is the direction the Freedom server itself should be taking and I'm keen to hear from you guys on this one.
There have been two main positions the Freedom server has taken over the years.
The first being throughout Mark's ownership when the worlds were disposable and the server focused more heavily on exploring new maps and worlds and building was less of a priority, but still possible (Though you had to be more careful about saving your builds). Maps would get reset usually daily and during peak times potentially a few times per day.
The second being from somewhere between Windows and Seth's ownership (And what we have today) where the worlds are loaded as empty shells and building is the main activity that takes place on the server. We actively avoid map resets and the server is very much a persistent long term thing. Saving your builds is less important because we don't wipe entire worlds.
I'm keen to know where the community actually want to see the server going, and if you guys like the current way we're running the Freedom-01 server, likewise if you think there's a better solution that isn't accounted for on either of the two ways we've ran things historically, please shout and I'll add more options to the poll
