We recently switched to 1.8 and due to some changes in 1.8, our server performance drops when a large pumpkin farm is being harvested. It starts with pistons firing off, which increases the tile entity count (often 20 000+ at once), followed by a massive increase in number of items (dropped items count as entities).

 

When multiple large farms get triggered, our TPS (ticks per seconds) drops by a lot--lagging the sever. This creates a laggy and sometimes unplayable environment for everyone. We already have limits on other entities such as animals (16 per type per faction). However, we cannot put a limit on pumpkins falling down and pistons firing off. In trying to regulate the pumpkin farms, an extra load would be put on our staff, so we will simply stop buying pumpkins, melons, and sugarcane in the AdminShop. This change was to come in V3 anyway, so a bit sooner should not matter.

 

We will replace these with alternatives. We will increase the regeneration frequency in the mines to counter for this and add a new mine for dirt. We will also add some new 1.8 blocks in the stone mine (andesite, diorite, granite) and increase the amount of money received from selling to the admin shop from the mines.

 

Details as follows:

We will accept World Edit removal requests for pumpkin/melon/sugarcane farms in following thread:

Please follow the format.

This is another step closer to V3

The pfarm near me was a great source of profit for me early on, but I'm glad to see it's been plowed under. Thanks for fixing my bricks so nicely :)

 

Though I guess i wasted my time taking those farms down manually last week :/

 

EDIT: Acacia and Dark Oak please?

Kyzer is gonna lose her shit.

 

Edit:

 

I like the new admin shops going in. Though that will bring the price of wood down majorly, I think it'll help the economy more in the long run.. Drive it more towards a stable economy than the fluctuating motherload of shit it currently is. GG Staff.
