Multiplayer Safe Mods?

Post by luismcs »

Hi all,

Does anyone have a list of "safe" mods to run on a server that won't cause sync issues for 2-3 players?
We've tried a few of the pollution mods but they increased the save files massively and caused tons of sync bugs.

Any info would be great as we want to expand from our vanilla save!

cheers

Anything that increases pollution is going to increase your save size, since the increased pollution means increased spread, and any chunk that pollution reaches needs to be generated, and thus saved.

If a mod is causing desyncs, report that to the mod creator. Every mod should be safe, and any mod can be unsafe if they don't code things correctly. Desyncs are a bug, and nobody has a list of bug-free mods.

Also, a list of what mods you already tried would be helpful for anyone who wanted to recommend something.
