why is smp3 so laggy lately?

  1. i want to know this because its getting on my nerves.
  2. Maybe its my huge redstone race circuitry with the random redstone pulsar. I know that when I turn it on, everyone within vicinity to the game gets instant lag.


  3. I will take a look at your redstone contraption and if it is to much we may have to ask you to tone it down. However I doubt that is causing server wide lag.

    Also when a server is having trouble I usually get to it within 10 minutes ;) so I usually say wait for 10 minutes and see if it gets fixed :)

  4. Well, I'm not on now, but if you want to check it, then when you go to the basement of my casino on my res, go to the center of the field, get the redstone from the chest, place it on the lowest block in the valley of the middle of the field (where its obvious it goes), and then flick all three switches under the fence.

    Good luck.

  5. LOL was thinking it's probably more due to the 60/60 players that have been on lately... noticed more lag after that started happening. Thinking 45 might have been a better number after all. :(

  6. Yeah, it seems like everyone and their mother have taken to stealing all the slots for SMP3.
  7. It's between that and whatever 1.1 and Bukkit brought. I'd be in favor of going back to 45 max, and I'm one of the free players that have to wait. Perhaps this is necessary until whatever Bukkit / 1.1 did can be mitigated, or till Justin implements the tweaks he has in the works.
  8. I don't know exactly what the reason is, but lag has noticably increased since the player max was raised- so it feels like that is the reason. It's not just on unexplored servers either - my experience is on SMP2. I have a blaze farm and it used to work pretty well, but now the lag makes it completely unusable. :( Maybe more servers with less people was the way to go.
  9. When I harvest my wheat who ever near my res will lag :D lol
