Because of an issue that happened tonight I am introducing a limit to how many machines you can have in a chunk. This will both keep crashes, and problems down, but mostly keep the server running optimal. This limit is as follows.
10 machines max per chunk.
I am currently working on a document that will detail how many specific machines are allowed in a chunk, but as most of you know, there are lost of machines so it may take a while. For now this will be the limit in place. Transfer nodes, and pipes have been causing lag problems. In order to keep them unbanned, please limit their use to small jobs, and not huge amounts doing 1 job. (for example, using 5 power taps on a reactor, with power nodes powering 50 machines constantly running). This will cause Opis (How we track what's lagging the server) to scream. If at any time, there is a problem with them on opis they may be removed without warning.
There will be a grace period surrounding this limit, where players will be warned their machines exceed the maximum amount. You will only be bugged if they cause problems.
If anymore issues arise that cannot be easily fixed, we will have to resort to banning those items. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
