@Sicco0803 ok thank you

@SouthernBrit as i said, my event didn't have spawning spiders and bats, so it's not my map then, must be something else.
SouthernBrit Nov 16 @ 12:55pm 
@Sicco0803 ive tried that. but there is no halloween option for it anymore. ive tried updation the server many times now. but nothing ever changes. its gotten to the point of one of my friends bases got virtually destroyed from how many bats were spawning
Sicco0803  [author] Nov 16 @ 12:38pm 
@SouthernBrit sounds like the map is not updated on the server, but i never had spawning spiders and bat during the halloween event. Maybe you activated the vanilla halloween event for that you might still use the option in your server start command line.
SouthernBrit Nov 16 @ 12:31pm 
Has anyone had an issue with the Halloween update not being removed? ive tried restarting updating several times, dino wipes. Now these things are spawning at a ridiculous rate. To the point my server crashes when im near the regions.

The regions which are spawning spiders, centipedes and bats ate swamp, the forests and around the volcano.

ive already looked through my server provider settings and everything is fine and the spawn rates aren't altered and changed. any ideas on what to do?

@twigalucie you just reported it, thanks. :)

I don't use discord, so if anyone could report this bug, I'd be very happy: At 76.5/24 there is a lootcrate that disappears into the mountain when it decends. No way of reaching it without ghost and going waaaay down into the world.
