Okay. Thank you. I think it works now. I added the jdk-17 path to the batch instead of the jvm arguments txt file. The windows command prompt is just blank, but when I close the native windows command prompt, the java command prompt opens & loads the server. If that won't cause issues then I'm all good.
SecurityCraft sentry is taking up 15% of the server's time and Create's SmartBlockEntityTicker is taking up another 5%. Consider disabling those two things from the mods or removing them from the world.
Also lower the simulation distance to reduce server load.
