Live Map Trouble.

  1. Can someone explain what these black spots are on the live map, I know they aren't unexplored spots because I can walk into the spot and it stays. I've tried refreshing, zooming out zooming in and nothing helps.
  2. it takes some time for livemap to catch up
  3. ive been on it for hours, it shouldn't take that long to catch up
  4. It typically takes a range of hours/days to update in my experience. A server restart might update it, but that's just a guess.
  5. Walking through a chunk no longer causes it to render on the live map. You must actually break/place a block to trigger it to render.

    This was done because the livemap was found to be a huge source of lag on the servers, so we lowered the amount of rendering it does.

  6. Alrighty, I'll try placing a block ty
  7. Well that confirms a friend of mine's theory about the live map. Thanks!
  8. Awesome, I was wondering this also. Looks like I'll be sure to drop a torch around while exploring.

    I highly recommend JourneyMap mod as well, auto maps places you've been and the waypoint functionality is incredible in the wilderness.
