Saving player position without DB?

Hi, is it possible to save player’s position and respawn to that location without a database ?

What I was thinking of is write some player info in a txt file and loading it when player respawns.
I’ve already done it to some extent. I’d like to know if it’s a better approach than a DB server.


It is. The current hype of using a database system for everything is way overkill and probably even slower (and more prone to cause server hangs) than just using files, or, better, HTTP requests.

Thank you, it’s good to hear that.
I’ve never understood the hype over DBs recently. I’m probably a bit old school when it comes to coding and optimization.

I’ll definitely check that HTTP requests link you’ve posted. Thanks again.
