World never finishes loading - constant dropouts


#1

I am unable to get the world to load in even the welcome area… I can leave it half an hour - it constantly runs at my max bandwidth (only 440kps) and nothing new drops in after the first couple of minutes. But the download speed will stay permanently maxed out regardless.

If I close the client, then restart it, I can pick up with those few models/textures cached, and then get a few more slowly over a looooong wait. Even an hour or more at 440kps down speed fails to ever load the world.

Every minute or so there is a disconnect sound effect and the screen blanks out.
within 10 seconds there is a reconnect sound effect and the cached assets slowly pop back in.

This is a paste of the typical error log entries.

44 KByte / second ?
That sounds extreme slow. most content is a few megabyte in size.
But after 30min you would think you see at least something.

What you could try is the domain EMPTY theres only a little bit content there last time i where there. See if something happens.

I think suggested download speed is 5 to 10 mbit for high fidelity.

440Kbytes not 44 …

The whole welcome area eventually loaded and cached - I am monitoring network usage and it’s happily idling along on a 1/4 of my connection speed. But still drops out CONSTANTLY … I f other players are in the room I can see and hear them speaking for about 20 seconds between dropouts.
Surely someone can help. This is not a result of my slower connection speed as it isn’t using much down/up bandwidth at all now that it is fully loaded.

Also if i switch to localport there is no dropouts
