1.17.x Falling Blocks Glitch

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by Sam_Diggity, Jul 14, 2021.

  1. I'm creating a plugin that spawns falling blocks. Whenever the player moves too far from the falling blocks, they begin to glitch upward as they fall. I've experienced this happening in previous versions as well.

    Here's an example.

    I've read that this happens because of the way Spigot handles falling blocks, and it cannot be fixed. Any insight/explanation on why this is would be appreciated. Thanks.
     
  2. I'm pretty sure if you summon a falling anvil and input the coordinates it should work. I am unsure as to why it wouldn't, unless its a visual bug but by literally summoning the entity I think Minecraft handles it after that point.
