I'm starting this thread to get a general thought from all of our members on how long you all believe our map save timeframe should be. Many agree that every minutes is a little drastic. So share with us how long you believe you would be comfortable with!

Remember: This time period is the time it takes the server to save the progress you have made on your building projects! If the server crashes, it's possible you could lose everything you did since the last save! Doesn't mean you will, just that it is possible if there is a hard crash that kills the server.

Please share your thoughts!


I actually wanted to vote every five minutes, but I'm guessing thats what were near right now. So I said 10. It just seems that every couple of minutes is too soon, because it can get annoying after a while.

Its on 5 minutes right now. It creates too much lag in my opinion every 5 minutes. At 30 minutes it seems to be just right. The only reason we put it to every 5 was because of the server crashes we used to have.


I figure anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes is good. But I'm leaning more towards ten because then, if you lose everything in a crash, your not working to the next save to redo everything.

I voted 30 minutes. Sounds just right, if there's a griefing doesn't seem like it should remove too much stuff.
