Concealment is a plugin created by the torch team. It is the most important plugin for performance improvements. The official version can be downloaded here
Concealment improves performance by not updating grids that are a settable distance from all players. This does not affect their physics.
Concealment has 5 chat Commands that can only be used by Admins
