PSA: SpongeForge RB 2990/SpongeVanilla RB 33 for Minecraft 1.12.2


#1

Greetings Sponge,

It’s that time again for a new series of recommended builds. Both of these contain critical fixes and performance increases (especially for pre-generation), notably the following:

After working with @Dockter and his server, we came to the realization that certain worlds (up to 3 of them) would encounter chunk corruption, wouldn’t save on shutdown, nor would unload chunks and likely numerous other possibilities of failure. After doing some investigation, I found the cause of this issue. The bug and the severity of it prompted this Recommended Build across the board. I cannot stress enough for the immediate upgrade to these builds, do not hesitate to do so.

SpongeVanilla: Here

PS You’ll notice these aren’t annotated with Recommended Build yet on our download site. We will be marking them shortly but I want no delay in having people start upgrading so I’ve elected to get this posting up as soon as possible.


#2

Just a little footnote: If commands were throwing you errors about Iterables, updating to this release should fix it. :slight_smile:

But this was my favorite feature.


#3

Could be the issue that block id’s are changing after every restart caused by this too?


#4

It can cause this, yes. I’m assuming you see blocks where they just “change”…things go corrupted in your worlds?


#5

Yes, some blocks either disappear or change to a different block.


#6

@SirWill

It is likely that this may cause this to go away (granted the corruption is permanent)


#7

Our world corrupted as well, which isn’t a huge deal because we are resetting and opening a long term server Thursday.


#8

I recommend going with 2989 (which is the corrected RB) and see how that goes.


#9

Alright pushed yet another build for a command fix. That will be the last of the RBs for a bit.
