Webmap is slow to render new chunks?

  1. I'm far east - northeast from spawn in the Frontier on SMP1. The new unexplored chunks (Black on the webmap) are extremely slow to render. Usually, the chunk will appear shortly after I've gone through it. As of last week ago or so, I have to hang out in the chunk for a few MC days for it to render. So if I ran through the chunk in less than a MC day, the webmap will skip the chunk.

    How long should I hang out in a new chunk for it to render on the webmap? Is there something wrong with server/map?

    Please advise. I'd rather not give away my location in the forum, so PM me if necessary.


  2. Currently new chunks are turned off for live map. You have to break a block in them to get it to generate.

    i am investigating trying to fix it, but the live map is the #1 source of lag for our server, so i changed its settings to lower its impact.

    I will fix it as soon as I get the time.
  3. Thanks for your hard work Aikar. Makes sense. Will slow down exploration, but lag is worse.
