Minecraft mod Mammoth will allow servers to host thousands of players without keeling over

It’s Monday on PC Gamer and we haven’t had any hot server chat yet: but fear not! An upcoming Minecraft mod of serious ambition is about to change all that, and may even have a wider impact on the platform’s future. Essentially, it comes down to one problem: Minecraft-as-is processes all information about a server on a single CPU (single-threaded). So you could have the biggest and beefiest PC in the world but, as soon as it’s having to deal with multiple dozens or even hundreds of players, you’re going to get a huge performance hit, the server’s tick rate will decrease to the point it’s unplayable, and no-one’s having fun.

The ‘world record’ for concurrent Minecraft players in a single world is 2622, a messy accomplishment where none of those players was able to actually do anything but, hey, they were there. This just wasn’t good enough for coder Jackson Roberts, who at the beginning of 2020 wanted a lockdown project, and decided to create a gigantic Minecraft server that could host thousands of players without lag. Minecraft’s existing single-threaded server software clearly wasn’t up to the job so Roberts and collaborator Harvey298 decided they would work out how to build their own, calling the project Mammoth.
