Afforess made a fork of Craftbukkit that works well for large servers, by nerfing plant growth
(amongst other optimisations, like mob spawninhg limits and item drop merging).
It's called and it can be DLed from getspout.org
It works pretty, well, and I suggested it to a chap on Bukkit Forums, here:http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/perfor ... ost-968476
...It took the Evil Smurf less than 24 hours to edit out all mention of Craftbukkit++.
What a tool.
Because it's already cropped up again in the same thread.
I just love having my posts erased by this cranio-rectal invert.
