Reduce Lag on ForgeMC server!

Enhancing multiplayer server performance often involves server-side only mods, minimizing impact on player experiences. These mods aim to improve efficiency without altering core mechanics or requiring player downloads. While they don't guarantee a lag-free experience, these mods can be valuable tools for server administrators. The following list highlights server-side only mods recognized for their potential to boost performance without disrupting gameplay.
