Another year, another April First! Many might not have seen everything that was put into place for the day, as various elements were scattered around:

  • The lobby was replaced with the USS Voyager, with fully functional transportation rooms.
  • The survival servers were stuck with eternal thunderstorms.
  • The website and forums took an older, worn guise.
  • The Discord server's logo and name were replaced with copies of the "Add a Server" feature.

The most obvious one to any visitor was the different lobby. People were free to explore the 1:1 replica of the USS Voyager, with the extra modification that both transportation rooms were fully functional. After some trial & errors, people figured out that they could rotate an indicator to set their destination, then press the button and run to the pad to teleport out. This allowed all survival servers to remain accessible!

And now, for some fun numbers:

  • The lobby had about 3 times more players than usual spending a non-trivial amount of time in it!
  • The site and forums only had a tilt of 1 degree!
  • Alex the Transporter Chief sent away uncountable players!
  • 1 USS Voyager, at long last! No world editor necessary for this one, I used the copy from storage as-is.

I hope you had fun!

I missed it this year! So sad. I always remember to return to Interordi on April 1st, because you always do something cool with it, Doctacosa. An April Fools thing where everybody is in on the joke is the best thing for that day.

But importantly, from this thread I now know that Interordi has a Discord server? Rad! Where can I find it?

The forums being slightly slanted was what threw me. I was scrolling through some old threads and suddenly realized I was leaning one way to compensate. XD

It sounds like I missed out on all the cool Star Trek stuff though. The lobby is an in-game thing, I assume?

The bulk of the gags happened on the Minecraft servers since that's where people are the most active, but I never forget about the forums either!

The lobby is usually a set of portals to let people go from one destination to another, meant to be straightforward and easy to navigate. Suddenly appearing on the bridge of a starship made for a different experience!

Bonus, attached here is a picture of how this topic would have appeared yesterday.
