One Word to Summarize the Atmos Reopening: Lag
Yeah. It was quite bad. I knew there would be a bit, especially during the times when the server was full, but the amount of lag we all experienced went way beyond my expectations. For those who made it on, thanks so much for putting up with it!
Part of me feels a bit let down, because Atmos is a server a lot of people put tons of time into, and it ran with very minimal lag issues back in 1.6. I know it was frustrating for you guys too, because many of you weren’t able to do basic things such as move or chat. I’m really, really sorry.
In order to help suppress the lag, we’ve begun taking down our signature paintings and other decorative designs. I know a lot of you liked them, and I did too, but the new post-1.7 reality is that they now cause too much strain on too many devices.
However, there’s still hope! The 1.7.1 bug fix update is coming, and according to Dave, lag is one of the things that’s gonna be addressed. I know there are other big servers out there that are also suffering, so I’m really hoping that this update is able to scale back the lag to at least match 1.6 levels.
And the good news is, Atmos is in it for the long haul. This world really does have something for everyone, and I was super proud to have been able to open it today and share it with you guys again. There will be plenty of time to check everything out. Thanks so much for sticking with us!
