A Brick Hill legacy server written from the ground up in Node.js.
It allows you to host Brick Hill servers efficiently, and headlessly (VPS hosting, etc). It comes with a fully-packed scripting API that lets you do things the legacy server normally couldn't do.
It can load .brk files to the client extremely fast, but at the same time being memory and CPU efficient. Allowing for long-term 24/7 hour hosting.
This does not provide any additional functionality to the legacy client.
ie. The client will not gain any FPS improvements.
