    If your server always has a few players that AFK forever and causes a waste of server resources, or if you want something that can hold lots of players like a waiting room or server lobby, you can consider using a Limbo server.

    This standalone server program can act as any other backend server in your bungeecord network (tho can also work without, options in

    Currently, the program is still under development and things will continue to be added.

    Limbo Server is built against 1.16.3 (1.16 - 1.16.2 can be found on the build server) and wouldn't work with other versions though you can use something like ViaVersion on bungeecord to allow other versions to connect.

    A small .schem can be loaded as the default world (the current sponge/worldedit schematic format) and player skins are also supported.

    Limbo Server also has an API which allows you to create simple plugins and change the behaviour of the Limbo, such as listening to chat events, adding custom commands, sending custom packets, or even adding more worlds.

    The Server seems pretty cool, but I don't get it to work with ViaBackwards and ViaVersion. For a lot of people, this will be useless if it doesn't work with older versions of Minecraft. Could you maybe write some kind of help for older Minecraft Versions?

      It should work with ViaVersion + ViaBackwards (+ ViaRewind if 1.8) on bungeecord. However, there is currently a bug in ViaBackwards regarding 1.15.2 -> 1.16.1. So wait until that is fixed, it should work just fine.

    Configurable in so many different ways - including world type, BungeeCord functionality, even version string(?!). I'll definitely be using this for my network, and I can't wait to see what else LOOHP adds to Limbo!
