Fix the server lag

Problem Description

Issue

I’m sorry, I have an issue. $39.99 a month for a server that is borderline crashing after 2 hours of playing is unacceptable. I had the server at 8GB and it was crashing hard when we had a total of 5 players playing. We decided to upgrade it to 16GB. There is no reason why it should still be crashing after 2 hours and just becoming too laggy to even play, after even 30 min for $40 a month. Please help.

Reproduction Steps

  • launch server
  • play the server
  • server crash

This is a combination of a few things, 16 GB is simply not enough RAM and Palworld isn’t that optimized yet, very similar to when ARK:SE was released. Google engine.ini Palworld changes to help you out. My Palworld server has used up to 22GB with 4hr restarts.

You are also going to want a CPU with strong single core marks, preferably a 6 core and a NVME drive for best performance.

ok, but where can i get a server that isnt gonna be $70/month for that then… thats kinda ridiculous.
