Lag problem with server

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

DST is a really great game! My friend and I got addicted to it last weekend.

Sadly though, he works in African and I'm in China. When we tried to play over this distance, the lag was terrible.

I thought perhaps a dedicated server would help, so I setup a VPS in Singapore using this nice docker project: https://github.com/mathielo/dst-dedicated-server.

Unfortunately, the lag is still unbearable! Even with no mods or anything, we are both experiencing 100-200 ms input lag. We've tried disabling Lag Compensation, but it's still really bad.

I just want to know if there's anything else I can do. I thought this game is supposed to be multiplayer, so I'm quite surprised that a ping that is tolerable for games like counterstrike and starcraft isn't good enough. Is there something wrong with our setup or is this simply as good as it gets for DST?

As much as I hate to say this, but that ping is quite normal for DST on such a distance.

That said, you can try connecting directly to the server using the cli from the main menu:

c_connect("<ip address>",<port>,"[password]")

This will probably shave off a few ms off of your ping, because it bypasses the Klei server listing/login procedure, and instead connects directly, but don't get your hopes up too much.
