    The papermc commit that fixes it (1.16.4-391) has the note "don't search for portal creation when looking down." I'm sure papermc the devs know more about this than either of us.

  • In r/Minecraft it didn't get as much attention as I hoped for, maybe among other server admins...
    The example you provided uses a File IO thread, but it just optimizes the file IO to be asynchronous. The actual loading is still initiated and handled for the most part on the main thread, but it offloads the slowest part to a thread. (see the configuration page where it describes it as: "The number of threads the server should use for world saving and loading.") If you check the code in that same patch, the processing is still happening on the main World thread Asynchronously using data fetched using the IO thread. (
    What about lighting? When the chunk is generated it seems that it requires the lightmap to be generated as well. Interestingly, this algorithm seems to make use of the CompletableFuture class for its asynchronous solution. Now, as discussed before, the CompletableFuture class makes heavy use of the Fork/Join framework, which recursively creates new threads. Therefore the chunk generation algorithm makes use of multithreading.
