tuning.minetest.one

Client

Hardware

  • faster CPU, better less cores but more MHz
  • more RAM, and better all RAM slots used, that just 1 (100%) or 2 (150%) of 4 (200%) = ramspeed
  • better (external) Graphics card
  • fast Hdd (over 200 rw access), better SSD (up to 550 rw), better M.2 (up to 3200 rw) read/write
  • can be done with raid also, 4 fast hdd 140 give then 480 ... depends on your options (place money)

Connection

  • Internet via ARJ (a cable to your unit) is always better (100-1000 Mb/s)
  • then wifi, but also this can be optimized
  • * lower speed (11, 22 is better than 54 MBs) as lower is more stable
    what is the 54 Mb/s wifi worth, when your internet can only deliver 1,3 5 or 10 Mb/S ???
  • * nearby better signal
  • * check for channel without neighbour same channel
  • * antennas spread around the stick = vertical position mean signal good around them at ame floor
  • * should not be walls, etc. between unit and router
  • * be aware of your family, when they all look movies, steam or youtube ... you get lag hehe

Software

  • up to date system version
  • up to date graphics driver
  • allow ram for cache
  • /etc/sysctl.conf
    • vm.swappiness = 1 (swapping ram is soooo slow, so is it last option)
    • vm.dirty_ratio = 95 (use free mem as cache)
  • reduce screen resolution
  • no/less running app background (close Browser, Office, ...)
  • fresh restarted most easy and fast
  • use /sudo htop (can give minetestserver threads higher piority, I use 2*F7 = 18, as rest keep 20)

Minetest

  • settings:
  • smooth lighting, particles, clouds, opaque water, simple leaves, no filder, no mipmap, antialising None, Shaders: off (empty box)
  • maybe: Saving map received ...
  • inGame
  • play fullsceen, no window
  • reduce view (+/-)
  • avoid open places
  • restart minetest app some time
  • check for server with low ping, ping yourself !

Server

Hardware

  • most same as client
  • just no GPU needed

Connection

  • most better as client
  • My server was good with 50/20 MB/s, but now I have 200/200 by luck

Software

  • keep system up to date, but update everytime
  • less not needed background, keep system clean
  • minetest: self compiling, with using more options
  • * -ENABLE_LUAJIT (need to install system own)
  • * -ENABLE_SYSTEM_GMP (nened to install)
  • * spatialindex, ...

Minetest

  • - give cache !
  • resuce ABM mods or intervals (like before interval 5, chance 2, I use better 9 and 1)
    as better every 9 sec sure, then every 10 sec maybe, and change to 9 so not every 5, 10 sec interval will meet on same then overwelmed sec
  • good settings of minetest.conf
    • ...
  • use faster database backend (file -> sqlite -> ... postgresql)
  • at areas with a lot of gmer, cut down trees, and better even no grass ... reduce biome work
  • well choosen mods
