Server: Smith & Forge (private server)
Description: after opening wheels of pain and greater wheels of pain with 4 or more thralls in them, players become desync’d from the server. They can’t interact with in game objects and may be killed by NPCs that they can’t see. You can predict the desync if you open a wheel that is On and the countdown bar for the fuel is frozen (does not advance).
This does not appear to affect small wheels of pain. this is an issue that’s reported on other servers as well, but it may not affect all servers universally.
Work-arounds: Use small wheels of pain, since these do not appear to have the same issue. If you elect to use medium or large wheels, avoid breaking more than 3 thralls at a time. If you prefer to use medium and large wheels, you can fix desync by relogging. Players may wish to place medium and large wheels inside structures or walls to keep their bodies safe during a relog.
