This plugin allows you to manage certain properties of farms on your server. Among other things, you can limit the size of mob farms, remove the ability of mobs in farms to collide and perform random movements, or completely disable the AI of mobs in farms. These actions can be performed either passively or in response to the server’s performance degrading.
The plugin is highly configurable, with per-world customisation available. You are able to define custom profiles to perform any number of different actions on groups of entities characterised by their entity type, distance from each other and count.
To access the base command, users will require the
farmcontrol.command.farmcontrol permission node.
/farmcontrol reload - Reload the plugin’s configuration
/farmcontrol status <world> - Show the status of the given world.
Be sure to configure the plugin by looking through its config.yml and profiles.yml, both located in the FarmControl folder of your plugin directory. By default, the plugin will only remove the random movement capabilities of and disable collisions for mobs in animal farms.

# Configuration for FarmControl. # Plugin page: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/86923/ # GitHub: https://github.com/froobynooby/FarmControl # Please don't change this! version: 4 # Every how many ticks should we run the profile check / action cycle? cycle-period: 600 # How long in ticks should we wait before starting the checking tasks following the plugin's start up? # * This is useful when using the 'reactive' mode where it is desirable to ignore the server's performance in the first # few minutes following a restart. start-up-delay: 0 # These settings can be specified per world. # * Note: If a world is not specified or if a setting is missing, it will use the settings listed under the default # section. world-settings: default: # Which profiles (as given in profiles.yml) should we run? profiles: # These profiles are constantly run. proactive: - soft-nerf-animal-farms # - trim-animal-farms # - trim-sparse-animal-farms # These profiles only run when the server is performing poorly and are progressively undone as performance # improves (as defined under the reactive-mode-settings). # * Note: It is generally preferable to ensure your server's performance doesn't degrade in the first place, # rather than try to mitigate it. That said, there are some reasonable use cases for this mode, such as # allowing your players to keep larger farms at the cost of nerfing them when performance begins to degrade. reactive: # - hard-nerf-animal-farms # - freeze-animal-farms # These settings concern the reactive mode for triggering profile check / action cycles. reactive-mode-settings: # Below what TPS should the reactive mode be triggered? trigger-tps-threshold: 18.0 # Above what TPS should the reactive mode be untriggered, and actions undone. untrigger-tps-threshold: 19.9 # These settings concern how the plugin should handle undoing actions performed on mobs once the reactive mode has # been untriggered. untrigger-settings: # How many cycles of the reactive mode being untriggered should have to pass before any actions are undone? minimum-cycles-before-undo: 10 # At most how many mobs should have their actions undone per cycle? maximum-undos-per-cycle: 40 # How much should an entity contribute to the maximum-undos-per-cycle limit? # * For example, if maximum-undos-per-cycle was 40 and the entity-undo-weight for villagers was 5, at most 8 # villagers could have their actions undone (since 5 * 8 = 40). # * If an entity type is not specified, the value under default will be used. entity-undo-weight: default: 1 villager: 5 # These settings concern when we should exclude a mob from having actions applied to them. exclusion-settings: # Should we not perform actions on tamed mobs? tamed: true # Should we not perform actions on named mobs? named: true # Should we not perform actions on mobs in love-mode (breeding animals)? love-mode: true # Should we not perform actions on mobs that are leashed? leashed: true # Should we not perform actions on mobs that are younger than this value (in ticks)? younger-than: 0 # Which types of mobs should we not perform actions on? type: # - villager # For which metadata should we not perform actions on a mob? # * Some plugins will add metadata to mobs that they spawn or use.
