Chunkloaders

The chunkloading solution for SwitchCraft 3 is a custom Krist-based server-side chunkloader mod. View your chunkloader information in-game by running /chunkloader.

Quick reference

  • /chunkloader - View your chunkloader information
  • /chunkloader list - List all your loaded chunks
  • /chunkloader unlock - Pay to increase your chunkloading limit
  • /chunkloader load - Load the chunk you are standing in
  • /chunkloader load offline - Offline-load the chunk you are standing in
  • /chunkloader unload - Unload the chunk you are standing in

Overview

There are two types of chunks:

  • Loaded chunks: These chunks are only loaded when you are online.
  • Offline chunks: These chunks are always loaded, even when you are offline, for up to 30 days since your last login.

You can have a maximum of 9 loaded chunks, and a maximum of 2 offline chunks. Chunks can be 'loaded' and 'unloaded' (allocated and unallocated) at-will at no cost by running /chunkloader load and /chunkloader unload.

By default, your chunkloading limit will be 0 loaded chunks and 0 offline chunks. You can increase your chunkloading limit with a one-time payment by running /chunkloader unlock. Every 4 loaded chunks you unlock will grant you 1 offline chunk.

If you are offline for more than 30 days, your offline chunks will no longer be loaded. When you next log in, they will automatically become loaded again.

Prices

The one-time prices for unlocking more loaded chunks are as follows:

New loaded limitNew offline limitCost
1 100
2 150
3 200
4 1 250
5 300
6 350
7 400
8 2 450
9 500

All payments are one-time only. You will not be charged for having chunks loaded - you only pay to increase your limit.

Public services and free chunkloading

If you operate a public service on SwitchCraft, you may be eligible for free chunkloading. Free chunkloading is guaranteed offline chunk loading with no 30-day limit, and does not count towards your loaded chunk limits. Please contact a member of the staff team to discuss your eligibility.

A chunk containing parts of your base that are not part of your public service will not be eligible for free chunkloading.
