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 !

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.

    I cannot get farms to work while offline, either. Using craft bukkit 1.8.1.

    This seems to work for farms, and redstone, only when player is on the server, but outside the chunk. Does not keep chunks loaded when no one is online, and does not work with mob farms. I will be following this, as a chunk loader is much needed on 1.8 :) keep up the good work.

    @james137137: Go

    Can you please add permissions and also support 1.7.9?

    I want the players to add/remove but not list the chunks.

    @james137137: Go

    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
