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 transportation systems or commandblock systems.
- Keep as many chunks loaded as you want! (depending on the hardware of the machine)
- The chunks will load automatically on server startup!
- Load chunks the way YOU want, load the chunk you're currently standing in, load a specific chunk somewhere else or load hundreds of chunks all at once!
- Ability to load chunks from command blocks, rcon, and the console!
- Works on MC 1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11 and 1.12! (requires Java 8 or 9)
/kc help - Show the help page
/kc reload - Reload the plugin
/kc chunkinfo (coords | current | worldedit) - Info about chunks
/kc keepchunk (coords | current) - Keep a single chunk loaded
/kc keepregion (coords | worldedit) - Keep multiple chunks loaded
/kc releaseall - Release all chunks
/kc releasechunk (coords | current) - Release a single chunk

Remember to use chunk coordinates when manually specifying chunks to be loaded, instead of regular XYZ coordinates!

# debug: When set to true, the plugin logs <a lot> more information in the console
# exposeos: Do you want your players to be able to see which OS you are using?
# releaseallprotection: Do you want to restrict the releaseall command to the console only?
# dynamic: When enabled, chunks will immediately load once kept loaded by KC
# onstartup: Do you want all the chunks to load on server startup?
# onworldload: Do you want to automatically load all chunks in a world when it's loaded?
# When the above 3 options are disabled, chunks will only load when a player walks into them.
These plugins are not required, however, they extend KeepChunks's functionality:
- KeepChunks utilizes bStats, which means that some statistical information is collected and sent to bstats.org. All anonymously, of course.
- When loading a redstone system or a minecart railroad, make sure to load a couple of chunks around it as well!
- If you're experiencing problems/crashes with KeepChunks, set "period-in-ticks" to -1 and "load-threshold" to -1 in your bukkit.yml.
- If you want the chunks to tick as if there are players nearby (e.g. for crop farming), you need to implement the SPIGOT-3747 patch until Spigot decides to implement it in their main code. Once you have your custom built Spigot JAR, you'll need to install TickChunks and run the 'copy-to-tickchunks' script. Voilà!
- You are not allowed to decompile and/or redistribute anything of KeepChunks without permission of the author ("TouchBar").

Keep specified chunks loaded, even if you're not online!
It installs easily, and the server log says it gets loaded (nice ASCII arts, BTW). When turning on debug output in the config.yml the plugin nicely logs which chunks are kept loaded upon server start-up.
I have realized that chunk loading doesn't help with crop farming unless a player is nearby. But then I don't need chunk loading in the first place. However, I've implemented a patch (SPIGOT-3747) that allows keeping sending ticks to entities and blocks in chunks loaded using this plug-in. With this, the plug-in proves very useful.
I like the way the command/help/syntax structure has changed in this version. Have been using KC for ages now, and since it's literally the ONLY plugin that actually does what I need it to do (keep chunks loaded, so for example /clone commands can copy things into them, and so commandblocks are working), I absolutely recommend this plugin.
