Giant Bomb European Server
So I did a bit of testing on my older PC that I use as a file server, and long story short: That's not happening.
Going over the network from my game PC it seemed alright, but on the server I get all types of messages about the server not being able to keep up every time I teleported somewhere. And when I went to the edge of the known map everything just grinded to a halt for a good ten seconds while it generated more world to explore. And that was with just me on the server.
Then for fun I tried to start up iTunes and listen to a podcast and everything in the gameworld started stuttering.
RAM usage was next to nothing, so I think its mostly the processor not being able to keep up.
Keep in mind that this is on an AMD Athlon64 3000+ with 1GB of RAM, so this was pretty much what I expected. I think a fairly recent dual core PC would have no problem with it.
So I guess I'm out for now. Also all of the custom server software is for creative mode etc. I didn't find a SMP custom server program anywhere.
Within a couple of weeks, maybe a month. I am going to start a minecraft server regardless of how this is going then. But if its still down, I guess I would try to get this one going again. Will be on a 10MBit upload speed, with a AMD Phenom x4 CPU at around 3.4 ghz, 4 gig of ram and a 40gig SSD. I am not sure if it will be good enough for European standards. But if its still down it would be worth a shot. ;)
