  1. I guess you missed this part. All his CPU cores where busy with running DST, not just two.
  2. Actually you are wrong. artemiy the owner of Slightly Tilted group has last time I checked like 6 public and 2 private DST servers and some of them have mods and whatnot and runs them all from the same Intel Xeon E3-1231 v3 server and one time I asked him about some CPU usage when had like 20 people scattered on all the servers and he had like 30% CPU usage on all 4 cores. it's true that the Master and Caves each use one core, but given that the CPU has 4 and 8 threads this means that system won't halt other processes to execute some other stuff, cos this is what actually causes the lag and on top of that the raw 3.4GHz frequency clearly helps. I don't have an i7 to test what you are saying, I was just making a point in regards of you saying that Xenon would be a bad choice. Edit: Him having 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600 ECC RAM guess helps a bit as well.
  3. I've been experiencing the same issue on the Caves server from time to time when there are many people in the Caves and are fighting the toad for instance. In my case I came to conclusion that it's a CPU usage problem and I can't do anything about it apart getting new hardware.
  4. Don't recommand that mod cos it removes a lot of the stuff it shouldn't. Just look at the comments.
  5. Out of curiosity how much RAM do you have?
  6. From what I experienced so far the CPU usage is dictated by at least 3 factors: tick_rate (set at 15), max player slots (set at 8) and depending on the world age how much junk is on the ground. offline_server = false, tick_rate = 15, max_players = 8, running from a Linux Mint with E8200 CPU 0 clients - Master (10-11%), Caves (10-11%) 1 client - Master (21-23%), Caves (17-18%) When will get more people on will return with the stats.
  7. The character pins are interesting to own, but the other things in the shop in my honest opinion are way too expensive. Who's maintaining the shop prices should do a reality check and adjust the prices. A plush Chester is way more expensive than the Mega Pack that offers 4 games? Are you kidding me? I can't but wonder why aren't the other DST / SW characters pins available?
  8. If for instance you got flood from then null route trafic from and to it with: ip route add blackhole for each IP's in the list if aren't too many of them.
  9. Oh my. The graphs are with or without log filtering? Or not at all? oO How's stuff with the two commands you listed? And why add a comment to them anyway? Oh, and if the IP's that flood you don't change why not null route them with ip route add blackhole ip? If the packets have the same length (35 in this case) you can also use that like: -m length --length 35 -j DROP
  10. Out of curiosity what stuff you see in tcpdump log that you want to filter/block if you don't mind sharing? So, you tested with limiting the UDP packets with something like: iptables -I INPUT -p udp -m limit --limit 10/s -j DROP and didn't work? Saw this.. give that a try?
  11. As I just finished helping another friend complete the puzzle checked out Charlie's video one more time just for the sake of testing if anything changed since last time I did the puzzle. As i was wathing it was thinking about obelisks and from who's point of view we finished the puzzle and honestly I was thinking that we would be from Charlies perspective because of the movie. On top of that what about if in the obelisks the two rulers standing in front of each other are for argument sake Maxwell (right) and Charlie (left) both on equal levels as a couple. In second we see one (Max) abusing the dark powers and thus banishing the light carrier (Charlie), then returns in third while the other ruler is on the ground suggesting it's downfall (for instance when Wilson freed him from the throne and in last) and in 4th image the Llight Carrier moans the loss of the other ruler and is stuck on the throne. What do you guys think? Haven't checked this topic for a long time so sorry if something like this has been already suggested and I didn't read. :S
  12. Why not have two separate rules and in one set the port defined in the server_port in Master and in the other the port you used in server_port in Caves?
  13. Since your question is rather technical one I think it's safe to assume you are using some linux distribution. In that case have a look at Using iptables to rate-limit incoming connections Something like: iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 27018:27019 -i eth0 -m state --state NEW -m recent --set iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 27018:27019 -i eth0 -m state --state NEW -m recent --update --seconds 60 --hitcount 10 -j DROP will limit any IP to 10 connections per minute for instance on the ports 27018 (master) and 27019 (caves).
  14. Those are most likely added from the mods the server is fully loaded with.
  15. When you gave us the first story on discord we where so hyped about the next chapter and when we finally got it a few hours later jaws dropped. Like i told you on discord you have a nice writing skill and should do something about it. Encouraged him share his story on the forums cos wanted to brag with his awesome writting skills. I tip my hat to you @WishIHadAFridge Kudos to you!
