Large entity is not rendering under specific angle

Hello, I created quite large entity which can be ridden by 32 players, however I found issue with it's rendering... When I'm looking around the entity it stops rendering under some angles. I have tried setting it's size to big number to cover whole entity so when you look at the entity you should be able to see it's bounding box. That didn't help. Is there some way to get around this? I could post some code, but I think this is built in somewhere in Minecraft by default.

This is most likely caused by the Entity's Frustum culling.
Don't have access to a workspace right now, but there should be a boolean along the lines of ignoreFrustumCheck that you can set to true in your entity's class that has been inherited from the base Entity class.

Okay, I have tried that, but my entity is still disapearing under some angles for some reason. I added that boolean into constructor and that's all. I've been looking into it's usage and it appears only the Dragon entity from Minecraft is using that and I did exactly the same implementation. :/

Entities are tied to the chunk. So if the chunk it's in is culled there is nothing you can do to make the entity render.

You need to split your entity into multiple parts.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

I have a similar problem, but my entity is really tall rather than (I'm assuming) really wide. Whenever I look too high, it completely disappears. I tried setting ignoreFrustumCheck to true, and I also tried overriding methods like shouldRender to always return true. I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with chunks. However, nothing has worked. Is there any way to fix this that doesn't involve creating multiple entities?

 

Also, this might be related - the hitbox from F3 + B goes all the way to the top of the rocket, but only the bottom 4-ish blocks can actually be hit.
