[1.7.10] Chunk Loader [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a simple chunk loader to load just the chunk the block is located in. I read about Forge's ticket system, however I'm not sure I understand it. This is what I have so far:

public class TileLoader extends TileEntity {
private ForgeChunkManager.Ticket ticket;

public void validate() {
	if (!worldObj.isRemote && ticket == null) {
		ticket = ForgeChunkManager.requestTicket(LoaderTest.instance, this.worldObj, ForgeChunkManager.Type.NORMAL);
		ForgeChunkManager.forceChunk(ticket, new ChunkCoordIntPair(this.xCoord / 16, this.yCoord / 16));

public void invalidate() {

With this code, many more tickets are created than needed and it doesn't seem to even load the chunk it is.

What have I done wrong?

Thanks for your suggestion. If I'm reading Buildcraft's code correctly, the ticket is created and used in the TileEntity update method with an initialized boolean to make sure that it only happens once. I tried using this method rather than the validate function, however it did not been to change the results. Many more tickets are created than needed and the chunk doesn't seem to be loaded.

Any other suggestions?

What is it about player entities that keeps chunks loaded around them? Could you imitate that? Or, create a special entity (or tile entity) that tricks the vanilla system into keeping its chunk loaded... sort of like a phantom player with observation radius 1.

The debugger is a powerful and necessary tool in any IDE, so learn how to use it. You'll be able to tell us more and get better help here if you investigate your runtime problems in the debugger before posting.
