One of the things I have been working on over the last few months is tweaking every bit of performance possible out of the server code. Today I finished my list of things to improve the performance of. Other than the occasional Minecraft hiccups (MC still has a lot of improvements to make) I feel that the Empire platform is in a great place.So the good news? We have just set the max players on smp1 to 60. The only real way to tell if we can handle more smoothly is just to test it. After all I don't have 60 Minecraft accounts and even if I did running 60 instances of the game my PC would prob burst into flames . If this goes horrible right away we will reverse course. If it goes great we will give it 24 hours for a real measurement and then start to up the other servers.Happy mining!
