Thread control is a simple mod that lets you limit how many logical processors Minecraft uses.


This mod back ports a change from 21w38a which set the limit from 8 logical processors to a maximum of 255(99% of PC's don't have this many) and made it configurable via a JVM arg.

An explanation of how this works can be found in this video from 0:47 - 1:15. (We use a config file(see below where to find it) not JVM args fyi)!

Please keep in mind this mod will mostly have an effect during resource/datapack loading & world generation.

Here it is in action on my own pc:

This mod is aimed at 3 groups of players:
-Server owners - Let's you limit how many threads that a server uses. Especially beneficial for those with several servers on a PC.

-Low end PC's that struggle when Minecraft swallows the CPU and freezes everything else.

-High end PC's with 8+ logical processors.

The configuration can be found in `config/threadcontrol/ThreadControl.properties`

NOTE: NO THIS WILL NOT MAKE MINECRAFT FASTER IF YOU HAVE 8 OR LESS LOGICAL PROCESSORS ON YOUR CPU.
