Hello, I am here to find help and support about this issue since I have tried multiple hosting companies such as NFOServers, GMCHosting and more. They all seem to have this issue on a fresh reinstall no matter what gamemode. The issue is that whenever someone joins, switches jobs, spawns in a prop etc, the variance spikes. However it’s weird, because this was not an issue before the last few updates/hot fixes. Call me crazy, but I have talked to many other servers owners who said they have the same issue. I also joined and saw they have the same issue. Now the variance spiking a bit, I know, not a threat, however sometimes it’s noticeable and it bothers me. Servers like Icefuse or Superior Servers do not have this issue, they have a custom gamemode.
You may think this is normal, but before I do not remember this issue occurring. Now, most of the time the lag is not noticeable thankfully, but sometimes it’s unfortunately. Lets say you switch to a job that spawns with a lot of weapons the var generally spikes higher. I am also running on 22 tick on a premium core for GMCHosting, which is on the I7-4790k processor. Here’s where it gets weird. Lets say I spawn in a prop, the var raises to 5, then when I spawn it again it doesn’t raise. When I switch back to the same job, no lag. Same thing with a vehicle, spawn one in It seems it only lags when running/using it for the first time.
Please, before judging me and calling me stupid please take these points into consideration:
- Same issues on other servers.
- This issue never occurred before the latest updates.
- I tried it and it’s still an issue with multiple hosting companies no matter what gamemode including with a fresh wipe so my shitty addons aren’t in there.
- Yes, the variance spiking a bit is not a threat, but sometimes instead of it spiking to 5, it spikes to 20-30 and when driving a car, it is noticeable and it sucks.
- I tried connecting everything to databases using MySQL with all the modules there is.
The only issue that is similar to this, is threads about ULX causing lag on players joining. However that was a long time ago and I switched and found an alternative and never had lag/spike issues again.
The only two things I can guess is that, I did my testing wrong and it’s DarkRP, which wouldn’t make sense since it worked perfectly fine with 2.7 before the latest updates and the gamemode never updated since. Or it’s something in Garry’s Mods recent updates.
