I read every sign in the "Trials" and have gone through the general rules / info a few times.  It is hard to remember all the details though and I would like to make sure I am not breaking any rules with my horse ranch.


I read that farms / mobs should be kept to a "Reasonable size",

I am unsure what constitutes a "reasonable size" on a MC server.


I am planning to have approximately 30 horses, plus a handful of cows and chickens.

would that be acceptable? or too lag inducing with the horses?


Thanks in advance for your help! Smile

Our upper entity limit per region is 200 entities. When you press F3, there is a section that says E: [Number]/[Bigger Number]

Your goal is to keep the bigger number under 200.

Frenchy [TheFinalSnow] is correct. If we see your entity count above 200, we'll ask you to decrease it.  If it's obvious that there's no regard for keeping the entity count low, or if there are extreme numbers (e.g., out of control villager farm or packed mob spawner), staff may take action immediately.

It all goes back to to not wasting the server resources.  Entities are a significant drain, not only on the server but even moreso on personal computers. Horses are fine, farms are fine, villagers are fine, mob spawners are fine....just have them in moderation. There's never a need for anyone to have over 200 entities loaded.
