After today's daily server restarts, I have disabled our live dynamic map on the Survival server for the evening to do some testing. We have had some odd lag spikes ocurring randomly and I think it is the main source, so just need to finish some testing/tweaking and I will update when it's back online.
EDIT/UPDATE: The live map for Survival is staying off for now, as it is causing too much drop in the server's performance and causing random crashes, etc. I will continue to work on it and hopefully we can get it back on soon, but no ETA as of right now.
UPDATE2: The live map is now online once again! I will be running tests over the week while it's online and seeing how it runs. The hopper speeds increase will remain even with the live map online as well <3
On the plus side, hopper's have been sped up by 33%! I am hoping to be able to maintain that speed and maybe get it a bit lower as well. It's still nowhere close to vanilla speeds, but should be a noticible difference <3
