Been running a custom modpack for some time now on a server for a bunch of friends. Started off smoothly, by far the best pack I'd come up with to date with practically no issues. Then it started... Obnoxious crashes of unknown origin, seemingly corrupting entire regions. As you can imagine, this is the worst kind of issue since it means I have to shut
everything down and edit that player's NBT data to get them out of that location, which has unfortunately been a base on several occasions.
Normally with crashes, my friend and I are pretty decent at reading over the crash logs and determining the specific issue. However with these crashes, we haven't been able to figure out the cause, much less a viable solution to prevent them from happening again, or potentially repairing the damage caused. I've scoured through Google in every which way I know how and still can't find a solution, or even much information on the potential issue. So I'm turning to the forums in the hopes that
someone here is a bit more capable than I am, and could help me locate the source of the issues, if not at least a potentially better solution for dealing with it.
For a brief description of what happens and what we've tried... There's not much I can provide, other than that it seems extremely random, and the server goes down the second whatever triggers the crash occurs. Any time that player tries to join again, the server instantly goes back down. The only workable solution we've discovered so far is to either delete the player's data, or use an NBT editor to change their location away from the crash site. My friend has also, according to him, tried nuking/regenerating the problematic chunks but to no avail.
Haven't removed any mods, only added a few. Odd part is how the crashes just happened out of the blue. The issue with the pigmen specifically seems to be fixed now that I simply nuked the Nether. I've also fortunately found a solution to at least regenerate the corrupted chunks by deleting their region files. So far though it's been a while since the issue last happened, so I'm hoping with some of the mod updates and tweaks I tried, that it calmed things down.

Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.
