Game mode: [Online ][Official server #2970]
Problem: [ | Performance | ]
I have noticed some sever lag issues on the Official server #2970 depending on the time of day and number of people.
During the day the server seems to work ok so don’t bother checking the number of players online.
I’ve noticed evening around 8-9pm NZ time there is a bit of lag.
The server says it can support 40 players but with 4 players showing online at this time there is noticeable lag, NPC movements stilted and if they run (eg chasing a deer) they can teleport a few meters at a time. Trying for headshots with a bow is out of the question. And even the menu system has delays and you have to wait up to a second or more for commands to register.
With 16+ players online then the game is unplayable. character position is slow to update, falling through the floor or walls. Running is completely out of the question. Only slow movements allow the possibility moving around the world or base.
There appears to be one other clan that has built within the same region just our of view over a hill with a 2-3 structure base. Not sure if two bases within one map grid of each other causes issue. Never seen any active players nearby.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
1.Log on during 8pm NZT to find 16+ players and unplayable lag and clipping.
2.Log on during day time 12-3pm NZT, no issue
3.Log on during 8pm NZT to find 4+ players and slow response.
