At last your voices have been heard. After all of the complaining about lag comments I finally decided to do something about it.
At 3 o'clock PM I decided that the lag on the server was getting a bit ridiculous. So I sat in my chair for 5 hours straight researching different ways to manipulate the server that would result in a good outcome for all the users. After painstaking error after error I finally formulated a solution. We now are running at max performance.
Things that you will notice:
Little to no player lag - Players should now flow smoothly from point A to point B instead of skipping like before.
Farms will now grow 5-10 times faster
Lava and Water will now flow seamlessly
Fighting mobs are 10x more responsive
Animals now walk seamlessly with no lag
Block lag has been reduced by over 50%
You all can now enjoy a lag free server with 50+ people
If you should run into any errors please do let me know by PM'ing me the details. The server modifications I have made are VERY significant and required modding of the servers core functions, so there might be some things that you all may run into.
Until next time!
