Community concerns


Hello everyone!

In recent times we've heard a number of complaints about different issues, and we wanted to address some of these community concerns and show you what we've been working on!


Server lag & crashes
This is probably the most mentioned issue - and we understand that it's frustrating. That said, we are actively working on resolving issues causing lag and crashes. These are mostly related to our latest technological achievements which are still in development. As it is, networking is a very complex topic with a lot of variables you have to control. When one of the variables changes, your whole system might collapse.
While the crashes are surely annoying (I experienced them myself in-game), they also help us getting closer to a better, more stable version of NetherGames.

But why can't you test on a test server?
Honestly, we wish we could. Sadly, there is no way to efficiently emulate the behavior of players. The only way to precisely find complex issues is by pushing them on our live servers, then trying to isolate and reproduce them locally to work on a solution.


Cheaters
I'm sure every staff member on NetherGames understands how frustrating it can be if a player flies over to your island and destroys your bed right when the game starts.
That said, developing a well-working anticheat isn't as easy as many might think. It's probably one of the most complex components of a server and needs to be compotent and precise while also being performance-efficient.
NetherGames has certain code-standards, and we do not want to serve you a half-working "reworked" anticheat. A new, more advanced anticheat is in the works and we'll keep everyone updated as development progresses!


New Games
A popular point of criticism is that we're releasing new game modes despite having the issues mentioned above.
From an outsiders view, that might be irrational: Why not put all developers on the pressing issues?
The answer is quite simple: They can't. Infrastructure developers aren't proficient in developing anticheats, and game developers are not trained to work on the proxy and infrastructure.
The current issues only affects certain departments, and while these departments are working on resolving issues, the other development departments will keep working so we don't get behind schedule!


Wow, that was quite a lot to read.
TL;DR:
- We are actively working on resolving crashes and minimize lag.
- A new anticheat is in in the works, but it's a complex project that takes time.
- We are still publishing new content updates because the current issues do not affect all development departments.

I hope this has shed some light on what's going on right now within the development team. If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this post, I'll make sure to answer them all!

Have a great week.
NetherGames Development Team

There is a rather annoing bug with the party system.... when joining a game with a party there is a chance one or more of your party members will get kicked back out to a lobby server, I believe its because when you join a game it looks for a game with just one opening not accounting for your other party members..
