    Overview
    KeepChunks allows you to select chunks to keep them loaded in the Minecraft server memory, even when there are no players around. This can be useful for large redstone circuits, minecart railroads, commandblock systems and even for reducing teleport lag.

    Key Features
    • Keep as many chunks loaded as you want; There are no limits whatsoever!
    • Easy to use and set up; Simple and clear commands and permissions! The installation is simply drag-and-drop!
    • Lightweight; KeepChunks is designed to be as light on your server as possible!
    • Extremely powerful; Load hundreds of chunks at once using commands in-game, through the console, using command blocks, and even from rcon!
    • Works on most recent Minecraft versions; Supports any version from 1.13.2 to 1.18!
    • Railroads; Mark all chunks following a railroad with a single command!
    • Supports WorldEdit and WorldGuard; for even easier ways of loading chunks!
    • Fast, friendly support and regular plugin updates; Most questions will be answered within 48 hours, and KeepChunks will always be updated in advance of new Minecraft updates!

    Initial Setup
    To start using KeepChunks, simply download it by clicking the "Download Now" button in the top right corner, then drag it into your plugins folder and restart your server.
    That's it!
    You can now login to your server and type '/kc help' to get an overview of the available commands.
    A configuration file has also been generated, which is located in '/plugins/KeepChunks/'.

    Dependencies
    These plugins are not required, however they do extend the functionality of KeepChunks:
    WorldEdit (7.0.0 or newer)
    WorldGuard (7.0.0 or newer)

    Important Notes
    License and terms are located here.
    KeepChunks utilises bStats, which means that some statistical information is collected and sent to
    bstats.org.
    The most common server implementations like Spigot and Bukkit are supported, however Paper is recommended for the best experience.
    Running an older Minecraft version? Simply download a version of KeepChunks which suits your needs here.
    When marking a redstone system, a minecart railroad or a mob farm, make sure to mark a couple of chunks around the location as well! Example

    It is not yet possible to use this plugin for crop growing due to limitations in Minecraft.
    If you're experiencing issues or crashes with KeepChunks, try changing "period-in-ticks" and "load-threshold" to -1 in your bukkit.yml.

    Works as intended on my 1.17 SMP world :) One issue is that amethyst clusters do not grow. Other than that minor issue this plugin rocks and is exactly what we needed!

    Version: 1.6.8
    Great plugin. Threw it on, told me I need an older version, got that older version and that worked like a charm.

    Only slightly confusing thing for me was that the coordinates are chunk coordinates and not block coordinates. After having cleared that confusion up I was very happy with the results.

    Stuff stays loaded as it should and the option to prevent any chunks from unloading even made my minigame work smoother as the chunks don't need to be loaded.

    Highly recommend this plugin.

    what is the exact command for keeping the chunk you are in and how do you write the coordinates? do you stand in each corner or what? if its possible to keep the chunk you are in without using the coord sistem i give it a 5 star

      Thank you for the review. You can choose either coords x z world OR current to load the chunk you're currently standing in.
