Folia is a Paper fork adding regionalized multithreading to the server to support large amounts of players playing on the same server without the need for BungeeCord.

It works by grouping nearby chunks to form an “independent region.”

Each independent region has its own tick loop, which is ticked at the regular Minecraft tick rate (20 TPS). There is no main thread anymore, as each region effectively has its own “main thread” that executes the entire tick loop.

In this video, I’ll show you how to compile and run Folia.
