Signs or Item Frames..?

  1. Dear Spigot Community,

    We're having trouble at the moment, on our current build we've got a lot, we mean it a lot of signs half the amount of item frames. If you couldn't get what we are building it's a sign shop for players to sell and buy items. The problem is there's a lot of lag when rendering the chunks in which the build is contained in.

    We're curious, what causes more lag, bold text on signs or item frames..? Item frames are an entity and signs are tiles, we would have first thought item frames as entities usually have a few calculations going on however item frames are doing nothing but being rendered.

    The reason we're specifically talking about bold text is because of how minecraft achieves this bold appearance, if you didn't know bold is created by repeating a character twice just the second time shifting it left 2px.

    This means bold renders a character twice rather than just once. Any feedback is appreciated!

    Have a lovely day.

  2. item frames cause more lag. I suggest coding a plugin to limit the amount of item frames in a chunk and Armour stands.
