    Would be good if it would tell which world has the crowded chunk instead of just saying
    Found x entities. Chunk xyz

    Apart form that, the plugin is really awesome!

    Really good plugin, an essential to keep the lag on a server down, especially for creative servers. Has really helped solve a lot of lag issues and is one of a kind in terms of plugins.

    My network had a problem with too many minecarts on creative.
    This limits it to 40 and gets rid of all the lag.

    I reccomend it to everyone with a creative server , even though it might not be the best idea on survival,as spigot.yml can do the same thing.

    I had a weird issue on my server where entities would spike from 400 to 36000 in the blink of an eye and then a huge lag would occur as the server tried to clear them all out. This plugin correctly identified the problem chunk and I was able to tp there and somehow just being back in the chunk cleared it up. So yes this DOES work in 1.10 - weird hiccup in the server though still dont know exactly what caused the entity spikes.

      Thanks for you review! The plugin does mostly work in 1.10, there are a few things I need to tune though. Will probably be able to put some new effort in this project in a few weeks time. ;-)

    Great plugin, just want confirmation that working with 1.9 or an update. I wish the default /ew list was simplistic and a better break down. mesages need structure.
  6. Isaacey
    Version: 2.7
    Awesome plugin! Really decreases lag on your server but could possibly add a alert in chat for /ew clear x all.
    Something like
    [o] Entitys have been cleared.

    5 stars because your teleport feature showed me why clear lag was clearing 30k entities every 2 minutes. <3
