2 - Dragon Freezing Fix

Could you add an option which would disable the Ender dragon freezing?

The Ender dragon currently freezes due to Mojangs attempt to prevent as much lag so whenever a mob is too far away it freezes but this is a problem with the Ender dragon as the fights are really rather crap as it flies off ans gets frozen.

I don't really know how you could do it but hope you think of a way.

    @RossGosling: Go Sorry, I stopped with this. Also this isn't something EndReset should handle.

    If you want to help developing: Read this first!

    @RossGosling: Go Well, with the current version it's still able to fly in an unloaded chunk. I'm working on a version which holds a 3x3 chunk raster around a dragon but the tracking is very fragile and complicated.

    @V10lator: Go

    It doesn't actually work :/

    Could you try having a player entity flying around in the position of the dragon but never being tracked by the dragon as I definitely think it's something to do with being too far away from the players not being in unloaded chunks.

    Please try this: http://www.mediafire.com/?x8k4a8apppki6ta

    The entities are freezing cause the chunk they are in gets unloaded. This little plugin checks if a dragon is inside of a chunk that should get unloaded and if so it disallows the unloading and tries it again after 3 seconds.

    EDIT: And v0.2: http://www.mediafire.com/?sj8an172ni25w75 - This one allows the chunks to get unloaded if no player is inside of the world. But it saves the chunk coordinates and reloads the chunks as soon as a player enters the world. This saves RAM and is also more compatible to plugins like EndReset. ;)
