Any hint for the next update? as apparently the cave crash happens also if you walk to close to the mountain side (like getting stone and metal near the edge) and i was doing so well ignoring the urge to go cave hunting XD

@DragonHeartz74 don't worry there is no rushing at all. The cave crash will be fixed in the next update.

No rush here, I have note on my server just to avoid it for the time being. We are having a great time! Thank you for everything!

Hi I am running this map on my server and we love it, however lately when we try to enter the caves under the Red Ob Island we get caught in a shooter game crash loop and have to reset the server to an earlier time. I looks like this is something you may be aware of but I wanted to confirm, Hopefully fixed with the next update?
