on stream today, KirinDave shared his own theory on the history of the yog server worlds, which I found super interesting (as did the rest of chat!!) here’s a summary of his words in paragraphy form, I hope for the most part I conveyed it accurately…
- NOT. CANON. 100% not claimed as canon.
- the yoglabs/Voltz/SOI universe is hard to push in to this so just take the clone part as a minecraft perma-crossover for now? Apparently Lewis would like to link them (I think I’ve seen more than one reddit post on it) but there’s still nothing particularly solid yet.
- clarifications in brackets
The oldest, first world wrecked by the Tekkit war, was replaced by the second (Tekkit/FTB), the one that the Jaffa Factory, Sipsco, the Lab, and Blackrock all take place in. After that second world’s end explosion caused by Kim and Duncan, it was made uninhabitable and the residents were saved by being thrown out of it, a place where all their previous work was gone, in to the realm of Moonquest. Not the worst thing ever really, as they had finished what they set out to do originally.
The new Moonquest world was only ever supposed to be temporary measure (the origin/force acting on it is unknown), and because of that the heat and light slowly left it, similar to a mystcraft dimension. Xephos, who knew it would eventually become a problem (unknown why he knew), was determined to travel to go to other planets and scope out other mystcraft dimensions, either not telling Duncan and Honeydew or just not telling Honeydew as they would worry. They realize that there’s nothing for them on other planets, and the mystcraft worlds were frankly disasters, but they can in fact access their old home.
Upon returning, it’s clear that they weren’t just thrown, but de-synchronized from it, thousands of years had elapsed. Those years were lost when Duncan’s experiment with flux managed to shatter time itself, the unknown force in the universe placed them back when it finally corrected. Now the world had healed from the explosion, landscape completely changed, and was once again habitable. Their old structures were dilapidated and overgrown, and the land has new residents, inter-dimensional travelers from the Chaos server, others from many far away lands, all together now in the main (canonical) world of Minecraftia.
