Distant Horizons + Chunky on Server

Is it possible to somehow make Chunky load a lot of chunks on a server like it would on a Singleplayer world? If not what would your solution for loading chunks on servers be?

The solution without chunky would be the Serverside fork https://discord.com/channels/881614130614767666/1154490009735417989 It makes DH able to generate chunks outside of your render distance like on singleplayer but on multiplayer

Is that a mod or a plugin?

Will it work with vanilla players on the server?

Yes, for vanilla players it'll do nothing, but for other players, with the same version of the fork, it will work like in singleplayer

I tried with only the plugin installed on the server and that didn’t seem to work. Would I have had to install the mod on my client too? That’s sick!

I guess u cannot do that on a Paper server as u would have to run it on fabric or any another mod loader?

This post appeared first for me in google on answer overflow when searching for "Distant Horizons Server LOD". I'm adding this message so that a useful answer is accessible without having to join this server: 1. Download Jar Here: https://gitlab.com/s809/minecraft-lod-mod/-/wikis/home 2. Drop the matching jar (Merged is for all mod loaders) into mods/ of the server and clients. Mainline DH will NOT interact with server. 3. On server: open an additional TCP port. It's the same process as for opening the MC port. Default port is 25049, but you can change it in settings & config.
