Minecraft High-Performance Redstone Server

Build Status License: MIT Crates.io

A Minecraft creative server built for redstone. Each 256x256 plot runs on a separate thread, allowing for less lag, more concurrency, and many awesome extra features!

MCHPRS is very different from traditional servers. Because this server is tailored to the use of computation redstone, many things that are a part of Vanilla Minecraft servers don't exist here. That being said, MCHPRS comes with many of its own unique features.


If the Rust compiler is not already installed, you can find out how on their official website.

git clone https://github.com/MCHPR/MCHPRS.git
cargo build --release

Once complete, the optimized executable will be located at ./target/release/mchprs or ./target/release/mchprs.exe depending on your operating system.

Building on Windows

To build on Windows, replace the last line of Cargo.toml with

rusqlite = {version="0.23.1", features=["bundled"]}



Command Alias Description
/rtps [rtps] None Set the redstone ticks per second in the plot to [rtps]. (There are two redstone ticks in a game tick)

  • @AL1L for his contributions to worldedit and other various features.
  • @DavidGarland for a faster and overall better implementation of get_entry in the in-memory storage. This simple function runs 30% of the runtime for redstone.

Under the hood

When the server starts up, the main thread, which will from now on be referred to as the server thread, loads the Config.toml file and starts the networking thread. Threads communicate using message passing.

Server thread

The server thread handles the initialization process of the server and the login/ping procedure for connecting clients. If a client completes the login procedure, a Player struct will be loaded containing the client.

Networking thread

The networking thread handles all incoming clients. The client is then sent to the server thread through message passing.

Plot thread

The plot thread handles most of the logic for the server. The plot thread is where the real magic happens. Player movement, player rotation, WorldEdit, command handling, world-saving/loading, etc. are all handled by this thread. If this thread crashes somehow, the player will be sent back to the server thread to be moved to another plot*.
