[SOLVED]Removing All The Creatures In The "world"

So I want to make a hardcore pvp server. I don’t need any NPC basically, i will create/spawn vendors/trainers/bg masters when i need them, but all the creatures scattered around the world only clutter the server. My guess is that if I would manage to delete them all the server will run smoother and the chance for a crash would be smaller.

I tried to do this before, and i remember emptying the table in the db that had all the npc spawned, but that only resulted in my server crashing everytime i’d open it, because(i think) the creatures were linked to scripts, and the scripts couldn’t load, etc, you get the picture.

Any ideeas on what I could do?

truncate creature table and not creature_template.

Yep, i solved it, thanks aokromes. I also emptied creature_addon and creature_ai_scripts. works like a charm

But a PvP realm without creatures for battlegrounds is bit…
