Using 3rd party databases?


Angercraft

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious, I've seen some few places, people trying to use databases such as MySQL to persist data for their mods.

I know forge already has systems to save data, but would there be a use case, in which you can argue for using a database?

 

From wow private servers I always see the data for items, creatures, and so on saved in a MySQL table, mongodb or something similar.

I'd guess this is because there's a lot of data, in which case, could I argue for using a database, if I have a lot of data to save, for example about players?

Just curious, and for now the normal systems are great, but for future reference, I would like to know if it is a bad idea to use 3rd party databases, to not make that mistake.

 

Thanks in advance!

I think you mean Vanilla. Forge does almost nothing to the save system, except provide hooks for mod-added content (including capabilities).

Dunno.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

No, my point was, I don't see the point.

There is nothing wrong with the existing systems.
