Excessive and Unnecessary Map Explorations
Hi friendly community!
In the past few days, several players had issues with their inventory disappearing, floor blocks were missing, and other glitches and issues. This Forum was also down. The Culprit? Full disk space! But the full disk space was due to excessive map explorations (aka spider-legging the map overviewer
Have you seen our map overviewer? Every time we explore new land, that is additional data that our server must save, not just for the sake of the overviewer, but because it records the location and ID of each loaded block, which is used for rollbacks and griefing protection. Large and unnecessarily explored maps increase the data requirements exponentially.
Please stop doing that
To our valued new influx of players, keep having fun! But understand the implications of traveling out to stinkin -34,000!! Please reserve such massive exploration for your single player game. It's not cool to do that to here, costs extra money to host, extra time for the server to save the world, and extra time to research what the heck happened and fix the problem so that we can have a functioning server for the other players.
