Lag is gone, the game is running fine and if you read local chat (Which needs reducing in range by a long long way) you will notice something interesting starting to happen.
People are trading with each other. People are swapping crafting knives for spades, wood, metal, etc.
It is like a world slowing starting in motion.
A big well done to Jooky - your vision actually worked. I worried that there was going to be no trade but it is just the opposite. Now we need to make sure new things are added all the time to keep up the good work. Lots of animals and Undead would be good.
But please put the communcation system that is listed on the features not this long range local chat ! It is seriously immersion killing!
