Multiplay or Perfection Servers?
« on: 2013 10 24, 14:04:59 »
Vote for whether you think we should continue to host Blacraft on Perfection Servers or Multiplay.

Some current stats on Multiplay:

Cost: 7.75 /month (69 DKK)
Slots: 8 players
Memory: 600 MB

Current stats on Perfection Servers:

Cost: 11.97 USD/month (66 DKK)
Slots: 12 players
Memory: 1024 MB

"Features: 1 GB Dedicated RAM, Full FTP Access, RAMDisk Storage, Ready for Vanilla/Craftbukkit and virtually all plugins, Free On-Demand Backups, 24/7 Support, Multicraft Control Panel, Instant Setup."

For comparison, Multiplay with 12 players and 1024 MB RAM costs 13.55/month (121 DKK).

---

I think I do experience more lag on Perfection than Multiplay, horses often seem very laggy and water also seems laggy, Yqt reports that redstone in general is also more laggy. I think their CPU or whatever else might be responsible may be worse than Multiplay's, which could explain some of the cost difference. But it is true that it has much more memory, and more slots, for the same amount of money, and the restarts no longer happen. For these reasons, I think I will prefer Perfection Servers.

You have 23 days from now to vote, and you can change votes until the poll closes.

Ever since we moved to the perfection servers, the restarts have stopped, I'll take that even if there is a bit of lag.

As for the location, can we have one in the US.

With the horses, they have the same amount of lag problems as minecarts do.

We haven't tried any servers in US, but Darvince has complained a bit about it, even though many US and Canada players don't experience the lag that he has complained about, making me think it's unlikely that it'll make much of a difference, in any case the distance between Arizona and Germany is about 5800 km, a distance that it would take light 0.02 seconds to travel, with the occasional chest lag lasting for seconds and things like that I doubt that is the important thing here. The same argument could be used to say it really doesn't matter if I host it in USA or Europe the other way around. It probably doesn't matter much. It would be a bit of a mess to move server again though unless we upgrade if the location isn't important.

Why do you want it in US smjjames?

I thought maybe we could give it a try and see how well it works, but if it's going to be a mess to do, then ok.

The amount of mess it would be would be the same that it was to move from Multiplay to this one. Downloading everything, uploading and setting it all up again.

Yeah and that was definetly a bit of a hassle, so, change vote to stay on current server in Germany.

I noticed that in Perfection though it is less laggy when we have more people on, so maybe we don't get the full 1024MB unless 10 or more people are on?

Lag shouldn't depend on RAM amount, only on RAM type, CPU, etc. If you run out of RAM the server will simply crash.
