How does it work?
The limiting of entities is done using the Farm Limiter plugin. This plugin removes entities based on certain limits, defined by the configuration file.
The following image shows how grouping of entities works. Whenever the size of a group exceeds the defined limit for that entity, the entities are removed until the group is below the defined size-per-distance limit.
The distance is measure in a circle around the middle of the "group" of entities.
There are some entities that require custom limits. This could be because of resource-intensive AI's or other optimizations.
|Entity / Entities||Distance||Amount|
|Pig, Cow, Chicken||24||16|
|Zombified Piglin, Ghast, Magma Cube, Hoglin, Enderman, Snowman||24||8|
|Villager, Zombie Villager||48||12|
|Skeleton, Spider, Cave Spider, Strider||36||2|
|Snowball, Thrown Exp. Bottle, Experience Bottle||32||12|
|Minecart (all variants)||1||16|
If an entity is not explicitly mentioned in the table above, the following limits apply:
