The following sections describe everything you need to get your Palace server up and
running with a minimum of hassle.
Disk space. The amount of disk space required for your Palace Site initially depends on
the number and size of the sounds and graphics you make available. For example, the
files associated with running the traditional Mansion Palace will require around four
megabytes, three quarters of which is devoted to graphics and audio.
The only file that will grow noticeably in size over time is your prop file
. This file stores the binary data associated with all props used in your
Palace by all members. As you can imagine, this can get to be quite a large file if your
site becomes popular; it's not uncommon to hear of 30 MB prop files. Whether or not
you decide to control the size of this file is up to you, but there are basically two ways
to do it.
