Rule Change
Change to Rule G10:
Punishment violations will only be given if a 0-tick farm is made after this announcement has been posted. Any 0-tick farms made prior to the rule change will be simply removed.
Rule [G10]

Most fly machines, large Redstone contraptions, clocks or lag machines are not allowed.
ADDED: 0-tick farms are not allowed.
If you have concerns ask staff to check it out as if it is not massive, cause lag or with fly machines not go on forever then it should be ok.

(Note: Any blocks and any items lost during WorldEdit removal will not be refunded due to rule violation)

Rule Change
Rule T5 changed from 2 hours to 12 hours when asking a person to leave your town area:
If you’re in a town, or within a 200-block radius of one, and a town member ask you to leave, do so immediately and if you are on a players personal plot and they ask you to leave, do so immediately. This means to teleport to spawn, your town spawn or away from the town, not stay around the general area. If a player does not leave and/or still appears on the town members [/near] list (within a 200-block radius), then this will be in violation of the request and punishments will be given.

If this request is stated, you must stay away from the area for at least [COLOR=rgb(184...

Rule Changes (& SF Rule Enforcement)
A few rule changes:
  • Placed SlimeFun blocks that revert to their default block (mainly blocks from SlimeXPansion) will now not be replaced. -- We made this change to avoid false reports of glitched items
  • Any CS-CoreLib Heads that are obtained due to Cargo Nodes or Capacitors reverting will be replaced to the lowest tier (Small Energy Capacitor/Input and Output Nodes) -- This is done because there is no way for us to differenciate the blank item handed to other tiers.

About the current state of the TPS lag

  • 824
  • 11
Hey hey hey!

Let's get started, so if you haven't noticed (god knows how), the server becomes insanely laggy when player counts start to go into the 25+ range. Now, this is not caused by the player count its-self, but what the players are all doing at the same time.

I want to make this very clear, our plugins are not the cause of the lag, and that's proven by our timings (these are not public). We've tried and tried again with trying to come up with solutions, including help from PaperMC and SpigotMC, the server currently is as smooth as we can get it and that's confirmed. The issue with 1.13+ is that mojang changed how chunks work, load and generate, and they did not correctly change their default server software to compensate and optimise this. Other servers may not lag for a few reasons:
- They have less than 20 players average - Chunks still may load and unload, but not to the extent that our server is dealing with
- They are all in a designated area, or the world is not...

CraftYourTown Version 7 & Transparency Report

It's about time we sit down and explain a lot of things.
Get a coffee for this one, you'll need it.

We want to make it clear that we had no intentions, desire or need to reset again just over a month after the last one. We're as annoyed and frustrated as you are and we can only apologise for the events that have unfolded. This was not intentional and genuinely happened overnight. The server was fine, I went to bed, woke up, everything was wrong. It started with most plugins (not in a database) errors and them spamming java.io.IOException No space left on device. We realised that something had badly gone wrong and started removing un-used servers to free up storage. This helped by about 3% of the overall partition and it's storage. We then analyzed each server size and found towny had escalated from ~130GB to around ~390GB which was unexplainable when we found it. I then analyzed the plugins folder, that was normal size, the worlds; normal and then opened the logs...

Known Server Issues

Edit: We've upgraded and server is now stable

Hello all!

We know about a few issues regarding the actual technical side of things for the machine that CYT runs on and we'll let you in on them so we're as transparent as possible.
Basically the reason CYT crashed twice today was that an unknown person assigned too much RAM (Random-Access Memory) to the Towny server (we have 7 other servers running) that the machine doesn't have, so the machine crashed. We figured this out and fixed this instantly.

Secondly, the TPS drops are due to a large number of reasons:
  • Hoppers
  • Redstone Clocks
  • Chunk loading
  • Chunk unloading
  • Mobs
  • Hostile mobs
  • Spawners
  • Slimefun (Inevitable)
The RAM amount is not the issue, it's RAM speed related. (The current machine runs on DDR3 RAM, meaning the server cannot respond as fast as it would with DDR4. DDR3 runs at an average of ~1333MHz whilst DDR4 is a average of ~2400MHz)
To resolve this, we plan to upgrade the server to a...
