Wipe is next week so I wanted to address what’s going to happen. First off blueprints will not be wiping unless Facepunch comes out of nowhere and does a forced wipe for them. This time around we did a vote (http://www.strawpoll.me/14479697/r) and keeping the blueprints won. But I will be wiping blueprints 01/04/18 as long as Facepunch doesn’t beat me to it. For this wipe, I was going to test out a few seeds to make sure we get all of the radtowns but according to the latest devblog I might not need to.
Monuments now simulate a large number of potential placements and pick the one that fits the most monuments on the map. Up until now the map generation was only trying to find a spot for the high priority monuments and was okay with having less of the other ones around, even if there were more ideal options available that could fit much more monuments into the same space. – Devblog 188
With the wipe, the new rules will be enacted which has unfortunately upset some people but I believe its a must have for servers that limit group sizes. We will also be trying out a new host this wipe which should hopefully reduce the lag that players have been experiencing.
