Clearing Cache[edit]

When connecting to a server, any files the server provides for the client will be downloaded to your computer. This includes scripts, images, audio files, models, textures, and more. If you have an issue connecting to a server, clearing the cache may help solve the issue. To clear the cache, open the Launcher and click the Open button at the bottom left. A menu will appear with several options. Select Caches (not to be confused with Crashes). A folder window will appear. Delete all items in this folder. This will clear the cache. You can now connect to servers, which will re-download the files provided by the server.
