    I have a question. Does anyone else experience an increased amount of lag in cubecraft games? It appears to happen as the evening goes on, and other servers with even larger maps run just fine. Is it a server issue? I tried adjusting my video settings to be even more minimal, but it appears to have only made the lag worse. Any ideas on what I could do to improve this?

    It is a UK based server. Could that be the issue?

    I suppose it could be, but idk for sure. I did realize I was running OBS at the same time which definitely wasn't helping. It's manageable now!

    Yeah having many other things open never helps the matter

    It went right back to a consistent 3-4 second lag, making any decent gameplay impossible:(

    A little, yes, but there's no possible way to time hits or jumps with that much. I'm moving soon and will have much better connection

    I can see where your going with the ping lag spikes. Is you looked on status.cubecraft.net, you can see that towards in the afternoon, the ping becomes higher.
    [​IMG]

    One reason why this might be a thing, could be that in the afternoon, more players connect to the server. Since more players connect to the server, the server needs to handle more players. At around 1:30pm the ping skyrocketed.

    Another downside to this is as said above by RockBob, cubecraft's hosting servers are based in the U.K. If you lived in the U.S., your ping would depend on this. In other words, the ping might increase due to the servers being in the UK.

    This would also explain why in other servers, you get better ping. The bigger servers like mineplex and hypixel have server's located in the EU and US.

    Same issue happened occasionally prior to the return to 1.8 update.

    Depends on which country you live in. I believe you are from the US and since CubeCraft is a UK based server, that may be causing some extra lag. I do experience a bit of lag but not a lot since I am in India. CubeCraft occasionally does have some severe lag issues though that occur in every part of the world, I believe this is a problem they are going to fix.

    Update: I ran it at 2am my time, and even with OBS open, had absolutely no lag. So it must be a traffic/UK servers issue. Either way, I now know when I can and cannot attempt to play!
