Currently having connection issues but trying to sign back in, If the jetpack happens to break (as i've heard that can happen apparently) i'll offer to buy a new one of course lol.
I'll try to explore about 5k-10k blocks once I get the chance to sign back in!
So far, I've traveled about 8k blocks from spawn before I ran out of coal lol. I now have gotten some charcoal from a friend, but had to log off for dinner and couldn't come back.
I'll travel some more later and then I'll give you the jetpack back Mark
You are correct: We should coordinate direction/area rendering. Otherwise each of us will waste time going over areas already rendered.
Shall we choose quarters? Two of us have paralleled to the eastern world boundary, from spawn and from 320 meters north of spawn, going eastwards. You can take the northeastern quarter of the world, north of the north-south zero line? I will do the southeastern quarter. Violetcloudbear has her choice of other quarters or to partner up with either of us.
A player asked me to torch-mark my path. If they provide the torches, then maybe. That would be a whole bunch of torches.
So, how big is this world? 14 million chunks? Maybe half of a million chunks have now been seen/loaded? 28 more weeks of this torment, at this rate?
Not on my dime.
We have just two choices: Either explore the world en masse, to conquer the lag triggers by force of numbers, or stay huddled inside of explored areas--which is a nope.
I can dig it. I volunteer to jetpack a grid across unexplored terrains/oceans, to force rendering during minimal players-on-line hours.
If ten of us do this, the loading problems will be gone within one week. And us fliers/boaters will accrue claim blocks while doing this good deed.
Who else is game? No dilly-dallying and pillaging of easy pickings though...okay?
Thanks for your efforts in this! This world size is more than 6x larger than previous survival worlds (60,000 block diameter versus 24,000), so generating the entire map is going to be a chore. We're actively working on a way to have it generated on another machine, so don't feel obligated to spend time flying around.
