Bank Update & Performance

This week we finalized the Bank, a new structure in Spawn where you can sell any item available in our shops. No longer do you have to walk around to every shop just to sell many different items, as this can now be done with a few clicks of a sign. Access it with the warp ‘BANK’ or via a warp sign in one of the Warp Centers.

A word on performance

Lately we have had a massive influx of players to our server, which has put our server hardware to the test. It turned out pretty quickly that it is not capable of handling multiple players concurrently exploring, and I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. In an attempt to reduce lag I have changed many settings in the config file for Paper MC, and also just recently reduced the view distance from 12 to 8. The server always generates 12 chunks away from you in every direction with this value set to 12, regardless what your own client view distance is, so you can imagine that this can impact performance a lot. I also changed a setting that reduces the rate at which chunks are generated, and another setting that blocks you from entering unloaded chunks.

We’d love to hear from you regarding performance after these changes.
