No but funny as hell..
I've got severe performance problems and I don't think it is me. I'm talk like a minute of lag between doing something client side and it happening server side.
It is fixed now. Any idea why this keeps happening?
No idea, I've been having minor internet issues lately where the internet will grind to a almost a halt. Pages will load but very slowly. Speedtest gives me pings of 400ms+ when they are normally under 15ms, download speeds are cut in half and the upload test usually doesn't finish and when it does it is under 150Kbps. It usually only last 5-10 minutes though, maybe it happened while you were playing and cause the lag. If it keeps happening I'll call Comcast.
You might want to read the agreement before admitting that you run a dedicated server unless your on a business package, last time i looked at mine it was forbidden to run ad would have to get the business deal which was a $99 at the time although this was over a year ago i looked.
Or maybe if you did a little bit of research like running a tracert it becomes pretty obvious that it looks very likely that he uses Comcast business class in or near Chicago. I'm pretty sure that Newtekie is much more experienced at running servers than you think. I would suspect that he knows what he is doing and leave it at that.
I'm actually not on their business class plan, though I think I'm on a business class node due to having the 100Mbps plan.
Technically Comcast doesn't allow dedicated servers on residential class connections, but if you are on one of the top two teir plans they don't care what you do. And the server traffic is nothing compared to my other usage.
Like downloading the internet.
When you get a chance to update warps2dynmap, you'll know it is working if Resources: Chicken Farm renames to Resources: Chicken Coop.
FYI, I started work on the Cattle Ranch. It'll be a long time before it is finished though. By the time I finished mining the first two blocks of it, the piston farm wheat has grown. The only question in my mind is if I should come up with a mass slaughtering system for it or not. I'm leaning towards no because if it kills them off too fast, it won't keep pace with reproduction. Also, it would be difficult to make it discriminate between adults and calves.
If you need some cattle to get started, I have plenty. I had to go pretty far to find a couple cows to breed.
Funny you say this.
I am in Illinois and have Frontier Comm. 12 down.. 2 up DSL
I too have recently been experiencing the exact issue you describe.
My internet will be running along fine and suddenly drop to nearly a stand still.
A Bandwidth test will give me a ping in the hundreds (normally 15ms or so) and sometimes the test will not finish.
Also, it will last from a few minutes to maybe 30 minutes.
Say no to auto-slaughtering.
I never had issues finding feral cows, as long as one stays away from the desserts, swamps of thick woods there should be plenty.
I think the internet had a hiccup now (~3 AM). It says "cannot reach server."
After about five minutes, it was responding to status queries but still can't connect.
It is back to normal at 3:13 AM.
Dynmap is down so no point starting MC I guess.
The whole server was down, the power has been out at my house since about 7PM last night, the weather was really bad all night, tornadoes spotted in the area etc. The power came back on at about 7AM.
Woah, tornadoes. Hope everything is alright in your area.
I was not referring that Newteki did not know about what i was on about or how much he knew about running a dedi..
I was simply putting it out there as i would hate to see some one to get shutdown due to it.
Yeah seems that way and i was just saying as a friend...
Hopefully every thing gets back to normal.. We had a outage but it was short, UPS kicked in and when i finished what i was doing and turned the system off the power came back lol. Good to know my UPS still working hehe.
I'm starting to populate the cattle ranch. I started with about 10 cows from Cape Coon and only 4 made it. Needless to say, it is off to a slow start.
The cattle ranch is well populated and all that beef got me thinking again about an industrial barbeque. I'll have to investigate whether or not leather can survive burning.
1.6.1 is available:
Edit: There's enough cattle in the ranch to make the game lag to a crawl. I had to warp away, warp to prime, walk down the stairs, and start slaughtering them to make the lag go away.
I think a roaster will work but not in that one. It needs depth to work and the cattle ranch is at bedrock.
i'm on 1.6.1 now and no servers are updated to it sad face
on the plus side, HORSIES
Leather does survive roasting provided it doesn't fall in the fire.
I've run out of project ideas...except the aircraft carrier...
Mayhaps a horse racing track? Or a huge Zeppelin in the sky, now flight works on the server?
Zeppelin...I'm gonna have to mull that over.
is that a mod, or a default feature? a friend of mine has his own home server and i'd love to build something like that and screw with him
