    Hi everyone,

    We're looking at making it clearer for players and staff what is and isn't allowed when it comes to making your own farms / generators / auto sorters. Our aim is to reduce lag on the server and maintain the best possible experience for players. This thread will change as new rules are implemented.

    Automatically Enforced Behaviour:
    • On the Blue server, players are kicked after 20 minutes of being AFK.
    • There is a limit of 15 mobs per chunk (16 x 16 area).
      • NOTE: This has been the setting for the last 6 months - nothing has changed, don't freak out. The server clears any mobs over the cap automatically.
    • There is a limit of 400 hoppers within any 3 x 3 chunk region.
      • If you are making an auto sorter please Google the most efficient builds! Don't build a lag machine.
    • Portal farms (zombie pigman spawners) are disabled on the server.
    • If your farm is lagging the server, you may be teleported to spawn without warning.
    Specific Rules / Limitations:
    • 05/05/2019 - Large cobblestone generators are banned due to constant piston updates. All cobblestone generators are to be one module max.

    Question on hopper limit:
    Can you have 400 in a 3x3 chunk area and then in the 3x3 chunks directly next to it have 400 more or do you need to skip a 3x3 chunk area first?

    Hello! Thank god for new farm rules, blue has some laggy moments!
    I know some people are against this, but I like the new rules, probably because I'm not really an afker lol..

    If I go lag busting, I always see people spawning in mobs they don't kill or don't even know about. The caves below you spawn a lot of mobs as well! Just light em up, that's all I wanted to say.

    Wow. I'm all for reducing lag and improving performance, but this really low entity cap is pretty tough for people who are doing their own thing.

    Can someone please define how players will be defined as 'AFK' before they are kicked from the server?

    -Max 7 item frames, with no other entities in the entire chunk, which would include water distribution item sorters in favor of the more lag inducing hopper and redstone torch/observer based item elevators.
    -Max 7.5 sugar cane plants allowed to grow to 3 tall before harvesting with no other entities in the same chunk, including any kind of hopper minecart collection system.
    -Villager trading halls, villager breeders, and Iron Golem farms severely nerfed (on top of the 1.14 nerf)

    All of these changes wouldn't be so harmful if the servers render distance (which effects entity processing, mob spawning, and random ticks) wasn't already so low. I would very much rather see a cap to the number of active users being allowed on the server than capping normal gameplay mechanics further.

    I would imagine it would depend on the distribution of the 400 hoppers within the 9 chunks. In theory you could have 400 hoppers in one chunk and then another 400 4 chunks away with no hoppers in the remaining 16 chunks and not exceed the limit. Because the 800 hoppers aren't within a 3x3 grid with each other.

    @X1Grant The only change in this thread is the cobblestone change - the other settings are just a FYI as the server has been set this way for the last 6 months or so.

    The 15 entity cap is actually just a mob cap - I should have clarified. This is why sometimes your sheep/cows/chickens poof if there are too many in the chunk. All other entities (e.g. item frames, minecarts, dropped items) are unaffected.

    Thank you for clarifying specifically what types of entities are currently effected by this plugin @applebranch.

    Regarding the zombie pigman restriction before I start mining a ton of obsidian, do they just despawn when they enter the overworld, or is there a different system in place?

    It's like a farm that you can scale up by repeating the same design I think. So u can make it as big as you want.
