I think because #df756e88 is a staging version and I'm 100% sure there will be a new version tomorrow.
If the server is hosted, we need to ask them to upload the file so we can update it, which can cause the world to be wiped, not worth it for a staging version
Also most server will wait till we get 5.5.2 stable before updating.
The thing with the current build is re population of animals is broken so the world is not really manageable due to the eventual loss of all animals. I think most would rather take the chance with a working "temporary" build than one that is set to not work from the beginning. But obviously I am wrong as there are only a handful of 5.5.3 out there.
@Tenchi420 Apologies for the lateness of my reply.
In answer to your questions: Yes, the meteor is on, and mountains aren't exactly considered a critical resource. As long as you don't go out of your way to claim large areas for the sole purpose of monopolising resources, you can build where you want.
Sorry i just noticed this post. The killservers test servers are servers that killservers.com put up as public servers for people to go create a community and have fun on. We aren't always playing on them so might not notice if they do go down. We have them restarting on a schedule to make sure that will resolve connection issue but if you can't connect or the server does crash please feel free to email email@example.com or ping me on the ECo Discord (look for Pam)
@ClayC I'll check it out.
@Zaskersky Everyone appreciates a server host. It's a super tedious task that requires constant maintenance 24/7. Its honestly a shame to see it go, however, the reasons are understandable.
