entity-activation-range removing item frames?

  1. I have had some high TPS due to extreme amounts of entries in my main world; the timings paste entities section when clicked says its safe to set the entity-activation-range to 4 from 16, I have had item frames start disappearing recently and this is all I can think that may be causing it.
    Would this cause it? if so whats a safe number to set this to? I was reducing it to remove clearlag from my server, but if I can't set it to just clear ground items I may have to re-enable the plugin.

    I doubt the activation range is the issue. The activation works like the following:

    • If any player is within activation range:
    • tick entity
    • If player is not in activation range
    • Only tick the entity once per second.
    All it's doing is processing the entity less. I don't see how this would remove it.

    As for what is removing it - Well, I've no idea.
  3. Did you change your tracking ranges? Those "hide" entities.
  4. Nope, my tracking ranges are:
    players: 48
    animals: 48
    monsters: 48
    misc: 16
    other: 48

  5. Exactly what do you mean by disappearing? Do they get permanently removed or do you just have to walk up very close to them?
  6. Permanently get removed.

  7. Definitely not activation ranges, sounds more like something that would be caused by clearlagg.
    Are you 100% sure you don't have a plugin clearing entities?
  8. Yup, clarlagg wasn't on the server.
