      Server Move   09/13/18

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

If you are having errors on server login. Delete your .minecraft\GunCus folder.

Have you thought about making a discord server? It would be a nice way for server members to communicate

No I haven't but, others have asked if I have discord. I had never heard of discord. Looks like I'll add it.

Server will be down, and will have it's final update. Then will only be followed by updates not related to changing mods.

I have decided to start the server with a new seed. And players of the old server will be giving their tier anvils if they ask for them, as well as other hard to craft items. 

I'm doing this since I have already gone through all the problems with my fresh start, which made it like a beta. This will be completely polished, as well as with much features that other players have asked for. This would be your last chance to make suggestions so I can consider.

 

I make this post because. I am having a very hard time pre generating a world for TFC. If anyone here is able to generate a world with a radius of around 10-20k blocks, I can provide a link for you to upload it to me. Meanwhile I will continue to attempt it myself. Thank you.

Pre-generating a  TFC world takes many hours and most of the time days.

Several factors will affect how fast or slow it will be:

Processor speed and number of cores, Available Memory and how fast it can write to the Hard Drive.

In the end, there is not much one can do but to have patience.

Without knowing more about what kind of setup you have it is hard to speculate.

I learned the hard way that the best way to host a TFC server is to have a dedicated box in a rented rack with at least 100Mbp/s Up and Down Connection. Your choice of Linux, but it needs to be at least 4 cores and 16 GB of memory.

There was a time when after working for several months to create and manage the server we finally got to the point when the number of players was steady and increasing fast. One night we had 24 players online at the same time.

That's when the problems began the LAG was so much that players left and never came back.

A minecraft server has a funny way of behaving, it is either growing fast or it is dying. nothing in between.

Generating a 100.000 x 100.000 block world takes about 4 weeks on a fast computer. If you want to do roughly a quarter of that (25K x 25K) then be prepared to keep your PC running for about a week or so. Also keep in mind that TFC servers leak memory like a colander when generating a lot of chunks so you'll need to restart the server every few hours. If you do not then chunk generation will go down from 200~500/s to maybe a dozen per second.

As for servers either growing or dying. Our server seems to have reached some kind of equilibrium. Our servers are visited by roughly 200 individual players who accumulate roughly 60 days worth of non-AFK play time monthly. Last July we saw a distinct peak of 364 days of non-AFK play time but that was probably due to summer holidays.

Thanks for sharing. Tony and Insane

Yesterday, I successfully got world border to work with TFC. And scheduled chunk generations and restarts on my host. 

Interesting stuff. It's amazing that you have kept TFC servers running for the community this long.

 

For anyone interested. I should have everything up and running from Monday to Tuesday. I have plans this weekend, and will be generating a world in that time.

The server owner hasn't replied to this thread since October 6th and hasn't been on these forums since October 25th. That probably means this server is dead :/
