  • GitHub repo cardboard

    The Bukkit/Spigot/Paper API implementation for Fabric

    Project mention: Multidimensional shulker farms and Spigot/Paper are a bad combo. | | 2021-06-15

    not sure how it stacks up to paper, apparently performance is really good, and if you were starting a new world from scratch then you could have great chunk generation performance using a mod called "overworld two" (but it breaks seed parity). but obviously moving to a mod loader is a big deal and since it's not compatible with plugins (unless you install cardboard which is still WIP), you'd have to find replacements for everything.

  • GitHub repo SkinsRestorerX

    SkinsRestorer development repository

    Project mention: Any good login plugin for Velocity? | | 2021-06-15

    Use online UUIDs and skins for legit minecraft accounts This feature is part of FastLogin and PremiumConnector and also part of SimpleAuth (fabric and forge mod). I'm not sure about this, but there might be a way to forward the player's UUID and skin to a Fabric or a Forge server that's behind Velocity (which is a feature I would greatly appreciate as not even SkinsRestorer supports forwarding this to fabric). Again, CraftAPI (the library that Mojang Resolver is part of) could be very useful when it comes to implementing this.
