Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone has been enjoying their time on the server, specifically since the last reset. As most of you are aware, that last reset came with some major changes. The staff team is now looking for feedback in them..

We're starting to plan for future worlds of UrbanMC. Specifically, we're curious about how the changes implemented at the beginning of this world have been perceived. The relevant changes are listed in this thread: https://www.urbanmc.net:8080/threads/earth-to-urban.805/. We also encourage you to bring up any minor changes (https://www.urbanmc.net:8080/threads/minor-changes.744/page-2#post-6729) that you feel are pertinent.

Namely, we're asking about:
  • The earth map. Was it a good change? Would you want to play the same map again? An updated version may or may not be possible, does the availability or lack thereof affect your opinion?
  • The gold-based economy. Is it easy and intuitive? Or do you struggle to figure it...

Hello Everyone,

I'm working on some new marketing material for the server. I am in need of good quality pictures of some of your awesome towns. Any world, any style, any size. If town names/dates are available that would be nice but not required.

Please also include your favourite feature of this server, with some restrictions:
  • No donor perks
  • Must not refer to a specific player
  • Rules don't count
Thanks guys!

EDIT: Performance issues have been improved, but not fixed with 1.14.4. Please keep using these tips!

To start off, let me just say, this sucks. Most of you have probably, and unfortunately, become aware of the major lag spikes occurring on the server lately. The admin team has been hard at work at trying to delve into issue and resolve it. However, after deep diving into it, we have made note of a very common consistency among all of the lag reports that we generated. That single consistency is entity lag.

The issue with 1.14:
As you know, we tried to pretty quickly update to 1.14 with a large new map. One of the things we did not anticipate was severe performance issues with vanilla 1.14 servers. These 1.14 issues mainly focus around issues dealing with chunk loading/unloading as well as entity handling. A lot of complaints have arisen that 1.14 has significantly worse performance on production servers than 1.13. Many of these complaints come with...
