    As of right now it sucks getting raided and losing almost 100% of your ability to make money. cactus farms were awesome since it didnt cost much to repair them when they were raided and although less income than spawners it was always nice to be able to start back up after getting raided.

    just a thought so that we can keep people from making a 10x10 chunk cactus farm, maybe have claim specific to farms? something like 50 claims (5x5). only allowing farms to grow within the claims. + crop hoppers. should cut down on lag a bit. (obviously i know theres ways around the farm claims but most people play by the rules just dont be a dick)

    i know theres other ways to help the lag issues with cactus and its been done successfully on other servers and its something id really like to see come back

    +1 as long as it won’t cause lag.

    There's no real reason at this point that we can't do this. Cactus related lag issues should be non-existent now.

    I'm sure theres some kind of plugin that can fix the lag issue.

    The lag was caused by eff 6 mining drills and they blamed cow spawners

    If you take a moment to think about it... The lag started when the eff 6 drills became a thing, and the lag didnt go away when cow grinders and cactus farms were removed. And i think it quite obvious that when there is about 50 people running around with them trying to get the "found a spawner while mining" award, there is a large amount of chunks that are constantly being loaded/generated, and an insame amount of block updates. Yes cac farms and cow grinders may cause a bit of lag if their huge, but e6 drills were a major contributor of it. Unless the spawner while mining award is removed the tps will probably be 5 on the start of the map, all because of everyone generating so many chunks and updating so many blocks at the same time.

    The lag did end when cactus and cows were removed lol what are you on about? And do you have any proof that eff 6 drills caused the lag?

    lag became a huge problem when ppl started using drills, there were as many notifications of people finding spawners as people chatting, and after cac and cow farms were removed it improved a tiny bit, but was still bad. Even byte said himself that there wouldnt be a problem adding back cac farms.
