Has it everoccurredto you how annoying the chunk loading process in Minecraft is? At first, it may seem alright, but as soon as you start adventuring, chunks actuallyunload! This means that, after a certain distance away, the chunks you were previously on will start to deactivate. This is mainly due to Minecraft’s way of saving system resources.This may seem alright at first, but if you had crops growing on that chunk, the plants will actually stopgrowing as soon as the chunk unloads.
Hence, theChicken Chunks Mod was born. TheChicken Chunks Mod is a mod that makes it so chunks remain loaded, even if you’re not there. The mod achieves this by adding a new block called a “chunkloader”. The chunkloader’s job is pretty simple. After you place it, just right click it, and you will be visited by a GUI that asks for a radius. Just change the radius to suit your needs.
This mod is useful for those times where you have a farm that makes your only food supply. How bad would it be, after a long day of mining, you end up greeted without any new crops to harvest? With this mod, you no longer have to face that, as the crops will constantly grow, as long as there’s a chunkloader in the general vicinity of the crops.
All in all, this mod is pretty nice, and is recommended for anyone who would like to make it so some chunks keep loading, no matter what.

- Close Minecraft. This is to ensure that the files will overwrite properly.
- Open up Windows Explorer.
- In the navigation bar, type “%AppData%”.
- Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)
- Open up a folder called “.minecraft”.
- Open up a folder called “bin”.
- Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
- Select open with.
- Open with WinRAR.
- Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
- If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
- Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.
That’s it! Have fun!
Hopefully that helped you out! If not, you could post it in the comments, and we will help you!
- Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
- Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
- Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
- Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
- Open Minecraft up and have fun!
For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder. Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
