Dedicated Server - Size of map

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


what are your experiences with headless dedicatet server.

I try to run a custom map at my server - but wurm unlimited server will not start.,


Last line in log: INFO: Finished loading Wurm IDs, that took 1.879341 millis.

... for more than 15 minutes it will not be go on and i abort.


Map size 2048 will work wothout problems an fats. Maybe map size 4096 is to big for RAM and wurm server gives no feedback?


AMD Athlon II X2


CentOS 7.2

Two possible reasons.

1. The map generator program did not save the .map files properly.

2. You have not rebuild the database for the map before you started the server

I had that happen to me originally and I tracked it down to corrupted .map files.  Usually that was a result of not giving the map generator enough time to do its thing.  


Nowadays, I check that the CPU for the generation process is at a minimum before moving my next task.  Once I'm finished, I use the map viewer to load the file to make sure it is ok.  If it doesn't load, go back and start again because it's not going to load on your server.
