Would it be possible to save all the regions of the map (which would included our construction) when a new update happens then load that saved data back in and regen the ares you normally regen so we dont have to build all over again and again?

I am assuming that your server is on East Coast time based on the pattern of people logging on and off andif so would it make sense to have a trusted West Coast based admin with the ability to reset the server if necessary as you would be fast asleep?

I am in full agreement with you about a west coast admin and I will talk to you about that later when you get on. I would need to discuss that with you on teamspeak though. But as to saving player builds, it just isn't feasible given the server tools available right now.

The builds can be saved by the act of saving region files of the map (I did that via FTP on the server i have) - which would have been awesome prior to the regen of the army base area 1,-1 :(

Yes, that could have been done this time had I know to save that region file first. Let me first say that I feel very bad that your build was lost to this regen. I have offered my help with building assistance and by offering a share in my resources because I feel bad about what happened to you. I have also just made the regen map its own page on our website to help prevent this from happening in the future. - http://www.kamcraft.com/regen-areas.html

I do feel as though I made clear what the regen areas were in advance when I "pushed" this announcement back at the beginning of 8.2 - http://kamcraft.createaforum.com/general-discussion/8-2!!!!/ An email was sent to EVERYONE registered to the forum. As to your statement about saving regions to import back into the game after an update, this is not at all possible because it would "overwrite" any changes made to the terrain/ore etc. by the update and negating those updates for the entire region. This would also likely create errors and add instability to the server.  The ONLY way to save a build would be to save them as a custom prefab file. Unfortunately you still run the HIGH risk of creating glitches in future builds which is why I have only added custom prefabs that I have thoroughly tested on my clone of our server on my personal PC. It's just too difficult to save player builds at this point. That is why the developers have stated numerous times in the forums that server wipes are REQUIRED after every update unless they say otherwise.
