Great Server Settings. Guaranteed to make your server faster

by Rhys » Sat Nov 30, 2013 17:44

Hey guys! Rhys here! Today, I've got some server settings to make anybody's server faster! This even works in singleplayer, of course. Here ya go guys! :)

Code: Select all
max_block_send_distance = 6
max_simultaneous_block_sends_per_client = 1
max_simultaneous_block_sends_server_total = 16
active_block_range = 2
dedicated_server_step = 0.1
server_map_save_interval = 15.


Put these in your minetest.conf, and watch your Minetest run as fast as a cheetah!

Credit To:

ShadowNinja. He was the one who gave me the settings.

Thanks. I am going to try them on my server.
Many of my mods are now a part of Minetest-mods. A place where you know they are maintained!

A list of my mods can be found here

I placed this settings on my server , but since then I have massive lag when exploring into areas that is not loaded. It takes very long for the server to load the areas and that causes big lag.

Which of these settings affects that ? And what can I change it to to get my normal speed back at which the server load blocks ?

I don't think these settings would cause lag in the case. Most likely you have added a mod that uses on_generate which is very slow. As for settings, I would recommend decreasing `max_block_send_distance` to 3.

I haven't changed any mods or added any. Only change was adding these settings. Previously everything was fine.
I will try lowering that max_block_send_distance and see if that helps thanx.

Additional info: We are only 2 players on the server and we play on it on LAN. So bandwidth and ping rate is not the culprit either.

You can always remove the named settings from the config and server will use default values.
