    Hello everybody reading this!

    On our Attack of the B-team server we are experiencing a large increase of latency spikes where it happens aroudn every 5 to 20 minutes that last for between 1 and 10 seconds which is driving many regular players insane as well as pushing new players away as no one wants to play on a laggy server. So I have a suggestion that I've seen happen before, reset the morphs list! Yes it is very annoying to the more veteraned players as these morphs could be near and dear, like a morph of their old friend that never comes on anymore but they can use statues for that. Yet as players will start acquiring morphs immediately and more players will join I would like to make a secondary suggestion, every three or four months have a standardized morph reset. It may seem ridiculous but it would help with latency and possibly help with the server economy where players could sell one another mobs or to help circulate money out of the system have a spawn egg selling sign in spawn. Specifically, a bat spawn egg as it is unobtainable in any other legitimate way and is the most neutral flying mob which is what every player craves for when they first start off. I would suggest a price point of 50 myms so that way once they vote and or sell on the market they will be able to buy said spawn egg, this also helps gets our voting numbers up. I personally suggest only doing the bat spawn egg and no other spawn egg as using the MrCrayFish computer allows players to buy all basic passive mob spawn eggs excluding the squid.

    I am unsure on how it works but because space stations are personal and not claimed land. Would it be possible to go through a list to get rid of inactive space stations? If not have also have a moon reset as no players have a base there but just have lying around machines that just take up server memory.

    I am unsure what to add upon in this suggestion post but as time rolls on I will add upon it.

    Added on 3/8
    I remember many players complaining that spawn on atb is a major lag creator, if we could have a time where Dub would be able to finish it as she was the creator it could be possible to reduce latency. I know it is a stretch but still a thought.

    I'd suggest a one-time bat spawn egg kit, but that's me.

    Do you mean Full server reset, or just a restart like we have every 6 hours? Cause it persists after said restarts.

    Do you mean the ping to the server with latency or tps lag spikes?
    Is this still happening?

    We are talking freezes lasting for a couple of seconds. Sometimes even kicking a couple of players. This still happens, although much more often when there's 10+ people online.

    It is still very much happening and I believe it to be ping related.

    Would be good to have some posts here after it happened for timestamps.

    Based on these timestamps, and based on what I see ingame, the delays tend to happen every 10 minutes. (Usually between Hour:10minutes:02seconds and Hour:10minutes:15seconds).

    It was an FPS killer not an actual lag inducer.

    After a long freeze, the server decided to do an unplanned restart at :18:00 of this hour I am posting. (not given the hour so that people aren't confused due to timezones and such.)

    Currently, there's a consistent ~10 second delay every 10 minutes. I dunno what task is doing that, but its kinda annoying at this point.
