This plugin allows servers to keep chunks loaded while players are not around chunks. Meaning you can keep your farms growing and your redstone ticking.

Please note that this plugin is not yet fully complete. A demo video will be added soon


Note: You can use /cl as a alias to /ChunkLoader !

User-related commandsDescription
/ChunkLoader helphelp command listing all commands

This plugin is inspire by

  • FTB Mod pack
  • Railcraft: World Anchor & personal anchor
  • Chickenbone's Mods: ChickenChunks

What does this plugin provide

This plugin Provides a way to keep a chunk loaded in memory when the player moves away from it or logoff. I plan to make this fully customizable:


  • Chunk can be unloaded if player logs off
  • Player can have a limit of how many chunks he can have and if he can set it.
  • The chunk belongs to a certain player and only he can change it
  • A radius can be set from that chunk (fully comiziable with config file)
  • Chunks can be unloaded after a certain period
  • Cost for the chunk to stay loaded
  • Cost to make a chunkloader
  • World Edit support


This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics

notes: This plugin does work with ptweaks chunk unloading feature.

    As bukkit will not be moved to 1.8 this project is pretty much at a lost. I will be moving this plugin into a forge mod or sponge plugin

    it seems my plugin (ChunkLoader) might no longer be able to update I will do some test later on but it seems to be next to impossible to keep the chunks loaded using only the bukkit API

    this doesn't work, i set the chunks around my farm, went away for about 8 hours, and they hadn't grown

    Is this still being developed?
    Unfortunately I see no use for this at all, without permissions.

    Works only with a 1.7.4 server? I'm looking for a new update :(

    ps. chunks are loaded if all players are offline? To me doesn't work :(

    if this is still getting updated please add the ability for admins to tp to the chunks that are set so they can determine whether or not to leave them loaded

    @Layania: Go

    i'm starting it might be near impossible to keep chunks loaded with a plugin with low CPU. is the plugin even working in 1.7.9 with this plugin?

    @james137137: Go

    Many change between 1.7.9 and 1.8 ?
    I'm hoping 1.7.9 is good to anticipate 1.8 changes ?
