The New World is one of the six worlds on the MRT Server and was introduced on 4 October 2014. It is currently the default world for new guests and the world to build towns and acquire ranks.

The center of the New World is Central City that acts as the hub for the New World MRT System.

The New World is divided into 9 wards to facilitate the New World Highway System and the Vermilion Postcode System.

History

Origins

Discussions about additional worlds began as early as May 2013 such as the addition of a Nether World. After searching for plugins that handle multiple worlds, the MRT Staff decided on creating a second larger overworld map that would implement a newer version of the Minecart Rapid Transit System. The introduction of the New World would be complemented with a revised rank system to revive permissions for player creations previously restricted on the Old World due to its smaller size. The New World map was chosen from 94 candidate seeds. [1]

Expansion

At the November 2016 GSM, Frumple unveiled a new server machine named Epsilon that would allow the New World to be expanded on December 2016.

MRT System

Main article: New World MRT System

The New World was introduced with eleven MRT Lines and four planned additional lines. The MRT System implemented MRT v5. Ten lines terminate at the four terminals of Central City (Arctic, Taiga, Plains, Valley, Forest, Island, Mesa, Desert) while two (Expo and Zephyr) interchange at Central Park. Some of the MRT lines serve the various Large Biomes around the New World (Arctic, Taiga, Plains, Valley, Forest, Island, Mesa, Desert) while others serve specific cardinal points of the world (Expo, Zephyr, Northern, Eastern, Southern, Western, Circle).

Note: the Marina Shuttle is considered as a branch of the Expo Line.

While Frumple solely built the Old World MRT System, MRT Staff were tasked to build the New World MRT System. The lines were built in consideration of future extensions to towns and cities that are not served by the MRT lines.

Four additional MRT lines were planned to be built in order to connect the extended portions of the eleven initial MRT lines. As of November 2017 the Northern Line and the Eastern Line are fully operational while the Southern and Western Lines have yet to be built.

Two additional MRT lines were proposed by chiefbozx in 2015 but are currently abandoned or cancelled.

  •  L  MRT Lakeshore Line
  •  Q  MRT Quagmire Line

After the New World expanded on 26 December 2016 as part of the Epsilon server update, plans such as new lines and extensions of current ones have been made to expand the MRT System to the new Epsilon territories.

Wards

Main articles: New World Highway System, Vermilion Postcode System

The New World is divided into 9 wards. The names of A-class and B-class highways are determined by the main wards that they serve. The postcodes of towns and cities are also determined by the main wards that they are located in.
