    If you don't mind using Lua instead, I can recommended minetest as a free alternative. I've had a lot of fun messing around in it. It has a lot of great games and mods as well.

    Yet MineTest exists, which was the world generation rewritten from the ground up and made open source. People can write their own games to go on top of this, and a small team of peeps has basically recreated Minecraft 1-to-1 in MineTest, called MineClone. So probably not as big a task as you perhaps might think.

    You could try MineTest. There is a Minecraft clone that runs on it.
  • Running Minecraft on Asahi with more than 20 FPS

    What is the bottleneck here? I ran a similar game called [Minetest](https://www.minetest.net/) on Asahi and managed absolutely fine performance (Estimated: 50-100FPS), which, however, could be attributed to it being a native game written in C++. Are the "unfinished" Asahi graphics drivers (which I'm using) the problem? Is my JVM (openJDK) just not optimized for Asahi? According to top, java is using about 700% CPU at some points and is using up to 20GB VIRT, which seems to be a lot.
