[1.12] Block update in loaded chunk


Recommended Posts

Heya, im fairly new to modding mincraft and cannot bring google to give me results for my question. 

Let's assume I want to create a block which I want to update every tick whilst its chunk is loaded.


Which approach would be best suited?
Where can I read more about the Block Update and Chunk loading mecanics, for further reference?


Thanks in advance!

In your title you say "unloaded", in your post you say "loaded", which one do you mean?

If you mean loaded: Use a TileEntity.

If you mean unloaded: Well, you can't really tick a block that is not loaded. What are you trying to do in this update?

My bad, corrected it.

Well, I wanna update a simple value which is depending on the current weather/game time and block position.
