What is Tick Dynamic Mod
Tick Dynamic Mod is a Minecraft Forge Core Mod which tries to maintain a server Ticks Per Second at 20. In order to achieve this, it individually controls how many Entities and TileEntities update each tick. As the server TPS goes down, the number of Entities and TileEntities that update each tick also goes down, to maintain a high server TPS.
On a Minecraft server, the world will update 20 times each second. This means that the server has 50 milliseconds to go through every active world and update the Entities, TileEntities and other things such as lighting and terrain generation.
Once your server has a lot of players, and large active bases, the server might start having problems updating everything within the given time.
Especially, this is also true on modded servers with Chunk loaders, large bases with a lot of TileEntities, and many new Monsters and other Entities.
By having Tick Dynamic Mod installed on your server, you can define how much time each world is allowed to use, and within each world, how much time Entities and TileEntities are allowed to use.
Whenever these limits are hit, Tick Dynamic will limit the number of Entities and/or TileEntities that update each tick for the given groups.
You essentially have a separate TPS for Entities and TileEntities in each world.
Here are what you will achieve while maintaining a server TPS of 20 and forcing Entities and TileEntities to update slower:
- Little to no Block lag
- Interact with TileEntities(Chests, Machines etc.) without delays
- Chunk loading and teleporting without long pauses
- No player lag when moving around
- No disconnects due to long ticks
- Generally lower ping and a more responsive server
