Canyon is an optimized version of CraftBukkit for Minecraft Beta 1.7.3. It is essentially a rough equivalent of Paper for CraftBukkit Beta 1.7.3.
This documentation is a perpetual work in progress.
Why use Canyon?
Canyon includes features that no other Minecraft Beta 1.7.3 server software has:
- A revamped networking stack that makes the server feel much more snappy.
- An improved, more precise server tick loop immune to time adjustments.
- Online-mode functionality fully restored (provided a JAR modification on the client to point to the moved Mojang authentication server).
- Faster world loading and saving.
- Async chunk loading.
- Numerous small micro-optimizations.
- Other bug fixes.
