    @JoshP95 @Mephestrial you are using an out of date citizens, it has been fixed in later builds.

    Totally Disagree

    This plugin is the best, all its features are what makes it amazing. My RPG Roleplaying Server Runs off this plugin.

    So, for confirmation. Does the plugin work correctly now? If so, where's the latest build?

    what I did to rsolve this issue was to delete the folder and jar and redownload. It was easy since little was the only one on the server

    After Lots of Testing, I think I found out

    This is For the Fixed version.

    In the First 30 Seconds the Map Generates Random Chunks, After that The Map Does Not Generate Random Chunks anymore, It will generate more again when you restart your server for again 30 Seconds then Stop.

    I have Found Away around this Bug, Start your server let it Generate random Chunks for 30 Seconds It will only spawn a few. After that Your map Will no longer grow in Size or Lag, Because the Chunks are not spawning anymore.

    This is why Users say it is Still Broken but it is actually mainly fixed..

    They Just run there Server for 5 minutes then after that 5 Minutes they can see some extra chunks, They think that they have be generating the whole time but really they stopped after 30 seconds.

    Fullwall Has Fixed the Major bug, There is Just a Minor One in where the first 30 seconds of start up, it will still spawn Random Chunks.

    I hope this can help you, Fullwall

    With our API, it is possible to make Citizens modular. We could have the core Citizens plugin, with NPC-type addons. This would cut down on memory usage and allow server admins to avoid downloading NPC types that they have no use for.

    On another note, I plan on starting to add MySQL support shortly. Any suggestions for database structures are welcome. The more I get, the quicker and easier it will be to finish this major feature that is needed badly. :D

    using the test build, with the onofficial 1.7.3 CB from twitter, causes server timing out. ( know its not the RB, just an FYI

    it seems that when two to three players are right clicking the same NPC it gives that error then they can get the items for free.. when they close the inventory of the NPC.. and right clicked by another person or the same person it will say one at a time..

    Before I installed 1.0.9b I wiped my old citizens file and replaced it with 1.0.9b. I made about 30ish NPC's with 1.0.9b and then 3 days later all of them are gone. I had done restarts and such during that time so I know thats not the problem. Infact, my npc-profiles and empty :confused:. Someone please help me solve this problem.

    Update, if I do a clean install, deleting all the old files (and forgetting to back up my NPC's D: ), it works fine.

    As long as you wont make MySQL NEEDED for it! I had to install it when i first tried out NPCX: it was an mess. first i didn't even knew what MySQL was... the only thing I knew about it that it made NPCX work.... after installing it, crash reports were all over my screen, while I was following the steps someone else made.
    Later, I deleted and de-installed everything with the name MySQL, because it made a hell lot of crap!

    So PLEASE dont make MySQL needed! I beg you!!!! :'(

    i see someone read my post THANK YOU!
    i would love to test any MySQL features you come out with (i'm not to sure how database structures should be but ill let you know if I have any ideas). MySQL would be great, im trying to move all of my plugins over to SQL as it is an easier transition for me after running a WoW server.

    The new update is awesome, but sometimes, my npcs start walking in a loop between the last waypoint and the one before the last one after they reached the last waypoint once.

    Could this be possibly causing the server to randomly crash? Mt server keeps randomly crashing and I need to track the source :)

    Its possible that this plugin is crashing your server. Its also possible that unicorn farts are crashing your server. Without more information, no one can help you.

    Well I don't have any information to give, the server just stops with out any console logs or anything, I was just wandering if there was a known issue with this causing the server to crash :p

    Just make sure the MySQL version can do an auto import of the flatfile

    I would recommend you remove one plugin after the other till the crashing stops. The last plugin you removed is likely the culprit. Inquire in their thread as to why that may be. Asking "could this plugin cause crashes" is not a very good way to go about solving your issues, because they answer is always "yes, but probably not".
  21. Agreed. If you need your code to be simple and free of duplicated parts for different data methods then at least have SQlite as an option, then you can treat it as SQL without preventing half the admins from using the plugin. And all of the advantages are there in how you work with the data, since its not a database about all 2 million people who play minecraft, you dont *need* SQL for the storage of efficiency; you only *need* it so your code for finding or editing an npc becomes one SQL command and not some code to read from the 500 config files you currently have with the associated risk of programming errors.

    In fact, suggestions-wise: Put all the config options in one text file and all of the npc info in one file. Read the whole thing in and store it however you like in memory - you are NOT going to run out of memory holding 100 npcs in there - then save every x minutes, have a force-save command, have a /reload data command for when people manually edit stuff. And you're done. But at the moment the file format looks like a high school project where the teacher is all OCD about tidyness and doesn't actually program. In my servers web interface, I have to go thru 12 screens loading different files just to learn what I can about npc#35 that vanished. If it was in one file - yay - and btw sort that file by npc numbers not just in some random order. In fact, have a /npc renumber command that goes through them all from 1 and fills in all the dumb gaps from deleted ones, so if I have 6 npcs they'll end up numbers 1-6 not 1,5,8,12,32,33.

    Hope those ideas help. Keep up the good work, I'm dying to add loads of npcs and traders once it feels safe.

    Take Care,

    I know they're doing this for free. I know they have other things to do. Yes, the Citizens team does deserve credit for their work. But that doesn't mean we have to act all happy when the next update rolls around and crashes everyone's servers. I'm not trying to be an ungrateful asshole. I'm trying to spark some change.
    Maybe I'm just unlucky then, because every time I update this plugin, it's horribly broken and causes loads of lag and crashes.
    That would be amazing. :D

    I have a small question that I haven't been able to find an answer to on the Wiki. How can I increase the range that NPCs talk to when close? Ever since the latest build, I've noticed that NPCs have a much closer proximity now. Rather than being able to talk to my NPCs behind "counter-tops" I have to get on top of the counter and face them very close to talk to them.

    REQUEST for aPunch, fullwall etc: is it possible already or can it be added so that you can whitelist with a guard by permissions group instead of individual players? this would be AMAZING! thanks for your awesome plugin! it is a major draw for my server :)

    I can confirm, at least after about 20 mins, that the issue seems resolved, even with EvilNPC's enabled and pirates enabled my test server hasn't generated any random chunks.

    I will point out 2 things about the file you put up for testing, creating NPC's is free (I assume this is for testing purposes...) and Pirates generate NPC's in their own ID thread, so I ended up having 2 npc's with the id 0 (piratebay, and test1)
    Taming of EvilSeph did work, he was added to the NPC list as NPC ID:11 which was correct as my last generated NPC was npc 10

    Ok, seems to work if you make a fresh install of the Citizens (no files from the previous version), but I keep getting the "you don't have permissions to use that comand" when I do "/npc help" or any other command. I already have the "citizens.admin" permission in my config and all... :S

    Hi, I can confirm that both the chunk generation and memory leak problem is resolved on my server with this latest build. Will continue testing and advise if any issues but have not encountered any so far except the proximity talking bug that has already been reported. An extra dollop of awesomesauce for the citizens team!

    Running 953, having a problem with npc's randomly despawning. I have noticed this behavior on several servers. Any idea why random npcs will just up and disappear?

    Also, as for the API, right now it is pointless since you have defined "toggle" modifiers that keep new npc types being toggled. Please see this Issue: https://github.com/fullwall/Citizens/issues/117

    This currently prevents new npc types from being toggled.

    @dddbliss - thanks for the report, I will fix.
    @Clucky - an npc has an invalid location in the npc-profiles.yml. I would guess that you're using 1.0.9a and need to upgrade to b and reconvert.
