    Torch is a project aiming to enhance the default Minecraft Server.
    Torch modifies the default Minecraft Server code to optimize and enhance your experience.
    Torch has two modules in this project. The first module, TorchServer, and the second module, TorchAPI.

    TorchServer is a concurrent multi-threaded modification of the default Minecraft Server with the implemented of TorchAPI. TorchServer aims to allow developers to add content or enhance to their desire using TorchAPI and allows for a more faster server with multi threading and for using every resource available that has been allocated to the server.

    TorchAPI is a application programming interface for TorchServer for creating plugins more easily than with the default Minecraft Server code.

    The Torch project currently only has me as the only developer. However, I am currently updating this project daily.

    I think that this is a really awesome idea, as the main problem with servers is that sometimes they're just too damn under-powered as they use one thread. I'm going to give this a look and see how well it runs. It'll be interesting to see how it handles sharing information between the different threads, and how efficient it will be.

    @oceantheskatr Not to forget: what will actually be multithreaded about it.

    @timtower I'm guessing that different parts of the server will be on different threads. Maybe entities handled by one thread, chunk generation by another, etc. (Or something to that effect)

    Didn't 1.8 do that already?

    It's all still single threaded as far as I know.

    By 1.8 do you mean Vanilla server, CraftBukkit by Spigot, Spigot (all single-threaded), or an alternative? Trident supports multithreading. 1.8 could really mean anything :p

    I don't think it matters because they use Mojang code.

    I suppose. But they could have changed it, who knows. Anywho, we are yet again getting off topic :p

    Why would you do this instead of helping Trident?

    We've already got an API that isn't stolen from Bukkit, and a lot of work put into implementing the server. Plus, it's not based on Mojang code at all.
