Chunk Loader Datapack v.1.2.0
by 2mal3

WARNING: If you load too many chunks with this datapack it can come to lags.
With Chunk Loader Datapack the Chunk Loader is added to the game. With it - surprise - you can load chunks.Normally the chunks are not loaded any more when you are out of sight of a player, but with Chunk Loader they are loaded no matter where you are in the world.
To make this datapack work you need the resurcepack, so that the chunk loader is displayed correctly.

Loaded things:
Unfortunately, for technical reasons, not all aspects of the game can be preserved in loaded chunks.
Entity tick (Entities move, do things, die and so on)
Random block tick (Plants grow)
Redstone (All redstone components)
Mob spawning (Monsters and other creatures spawn)

Compatibility:
Singleplayer
Multiplayer
Vanilla 1.16+
Fabric
Forge
PaperSpigot

Commands:
Click to reveal
Disables the messages when placing and destroying a chunk loader:
/scoreboard players set $chlo.messages chlo.data 0
Enables the messages when placing and destroying a chunk loader:
/scoreboard players set $chlo.messages chlo.data 1
Gives out information about the datapack and the world. Helpful by bug reports:

4 Update Logs

Update v1.2.0 : 02/18/2021 11:36:16 amFeb 18th

This update mainly changes many internal things that you won't really notice. However, the performance and compatibility with other datapacks should be improved.
In addition, a few bugs were fixed at the crafting, so that this should now work better.

After the change, the old chunk laoder will no longer work, so I recommend to completely uninstall the old datapack and then install the new one.

Added:

  • Debug mode for bug reports
Changed:
  • Better datapack description
  • Better compatibility with other datapacks
  • Better performance
  • Better block simulation method
  • Code improvements
  • New datapack core
Bugs fixed:
  • When crafting a chunk loader, the chunk loader was first not displayed correctly
  • The crafting of several chunk loaders at the same time did not work
  • The datapack has been marked as incompatible in newer versions

Resource pack? It's just a Structure Block.

The chunk loader is a standalone block that only has the texture of structure blocks. The resourcepack is necessary to make the block and the item look like a structure block.
Without the resourcepack the chunk loader buck would look like a spawner and the item like an item frame.

How do you remove the chunk loaders?

When uninstalling, the delete function is executed by each chunk loader.
In this function, first the forceload is withdrawn from the chunk and then the chunkloader item is created. Then the block of the chunkloader is deleted and the maker armor stand is killed.
When uninstalling, all dropped chunkloader items are also deleted.

The datapack is unfortunately incompatible with the Unlock All Recipes Datapack from Vanillatweaks. If you use both together, my datapack will not work.

Hey I wanted to ask if this converts the chunk to entity processing or redstone processing.
Also if it loads as entity processing does it load a 3x3 centered on the chunk to redstone processing.
Thank You.

Hi!
Since I added the datapack to my world, I get a chunk loader every few second and it slowly fills up my inventory. Even if I don't have any placed in the world.
Do you have any idea for my problem, or it may be just a bug?
Thanks :)

Hi, I wanted to make an Iron farm but I realised that because my base was inside a village, I couldn't make it at my base or too near it because it would be inefficient. The solution I thought of was to put it way off in a different area (about 100 blocks away) and use a chunk loader so I could use it as I was AFK-ing at my other farms.. Would this work? Would this chunk loader make use of my iron farm while I'm doing other things in 1.16.1? Thanks in Advance :D

I can't place the chunkloader block. It comes up as "Structure Block" and right clicking in the world does not place it from my hand.
Edit: It also doesn't show up in JEI.

This is a known bug where I currently have no idea how to fix it without adding a whole new crafting table. It happens when you take the chunkloader out of the crafting field with shift, so if you take it out normally, everything should work.
That the chunkloader is not shown in the JEI can not be changed.

Remade it without shift clicking and still no dice. Cannot place the block at all. Also, my FPS went from around 80 to 30 once I added this datapack to my server.

Okay. Since I can't think of a quick solution right now, I would like to ask you a few questions to help you determine the problem.

Which Minecraft and Server version do you use?
What exactly happens during placement and crafting?

Sorry for the late reply. Using Minecraft 1.16.1, forge server 32.0.108. crafting works fine, happens as you would expect. Placement just does literally nothing. Block is not placed, just stays in hand.

Been testing the chunk loader in Minecraft 1.16.1 and I have found that things such as hoppers and Redstone work but as far as I can tell the random tick does work so farms like sugarcane don't work as the sugarcane cannot grow even when in the chunk with the chunk loader as random ticks don't seem to fire

If I place the chunk loader on the AFK spot in my gunpowder farm, will the game think that I'm actually at the spot and the gunpowder farm will spawn creepers?

I'm afraid not. The spawning of entities depends on the distance to the next player. Since the Chunk Loader only loads the chunk and does not simulate a player, it has no influence on spawning.

As far as I know, that should be the case*. Of course only if the server is online.

Do you plan to update this to 1.16? As currently, it does not work in the 1.16 update (crafting recipe just gives you a structure block])

The datapack actually works in 1.16. What happened to you is a bug that occurs when you take the chunkloader in the shifter out of the craftingtable. If you take it out normally everything should work.

Currently only the chunk in which the Chunk Loader is placed is loaded.

Maybe I will add an improved Chunk Loader in later versions, which will load more chunks.

Everything except the spawning of creatures should work, I've tested it again. Only in the 1.13 it does not work, there I have made a mistake. Are you sure you put the Chunk Loader in the right chunk?

Because that's not how chunck loading works. Crops grows and mobs spawns only when the player is near, but stuff like bees, villagers or redstone should work without player nearby

So I think this is a really useful datapack but I'm confused why when I placed one down and flew away this showed up https://prnt.sc/s2lsci it says it isn't loaded. So I'm wondering if it is still loading it but It tells you when you are loading it. Please help!

When the message comes that the chunk is no longer loaded it should not be loaded.
It could be that the chunk loader is broken, this happens when it takes damage like an entity.
It is also possible that you are using the wrong version, in 1.13 the dtapack does not work.
