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 !

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.

    Same here. I built a chicken farm, but it is not running when we are away from it. I've "/chunkloader set" the chunks all around the farm.

    This would have been a nice plugin, if the creator would have continued to work on his TODOs :/

    @SirGeraltMC: Go

    There are other plugins that do the same thing while using permissions ;)

    <<reply 2686756>>

    I checked the source code, and the answer is: there are absolutely no perms.

    I'm trying this plugin on Spigot 1.8.8.

    Perhaps my testing methods are faulty, but it doesn't seem to work.

    I've traveled well away from spawn chunks and built two simple machines that move an item through a hopper every time a minecart travels around a track. One of these I placed in a chunk that was "set" using this plugin- the other was in an adjacent chunk that was not "set".

    After traveling away from the two chunks and giving them ample time to finish loading all the items in the hopper, I returned only to find both chunks must have unloaded at the same time- as they had the same number items that had moved. The chunks were likely unloaded as soon as I left the area.

    Is there a better way to test this?

    Are there other options to consider?

    Does the chunks stay loaded if there are no players online?
