First Post, I was wondering with new updates coming with the new religion and new system mechanics will we have to reset our servers? was asked by players on my server and I wanted to ask you all the same question.
Hello and Welcome darwinrocks,
Map resets depend on the magnitude of the update. So far I haven't had to wipe my map due to a patch. I have chosen to wipe a map, or had to disable some mods that were not up to date though. I would suggest making a backup of your map just in case.
Map Updates = Shutdown the server for about 10-15 minutes then start it up again. Next to no issues with updates doing this process.
Other updates = They seem to occur every Thursday for fresh updates and bug fixes. Again restart your server every Thursday afternoon for good measure seems to avoid issue with Conan servers.
Set a save time for a regular save now and then doesn't hurt either.
All game mechanic issues tend to be part of the Thursday update. They will do immediate updates for more critical issues, so be ready for system resets in that case.
