I have decided to create a minecraft server in my spare time with a small group of friends, this entails configuring plugins. Many of them are incredibly simple and only require a few minor adjustments to setup. On my server we began to encounter a problem not seen on any other server so this required me to think outside the box a little. As you may know minecraft has many items and obviously you can mine then and drop them on the ground. Leaving an entity. However these entities can cause lag if there are large numbers. I was required to find a plugin which fixed this and a few other minor bugs.
