Minecraft 1.5.2 – Chicken Chunks Mod

Overview of this Mod

Has it ever occurred to you how annoying the chunk loading process in Minecraft is? At first, it may seem alright, but as soon as you start adventuring, chunks actually unload! 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 stop growing as soon as the chunk unloads.

Hence, the Chicken Chunks Mod was born. The Chicken 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.

So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it's easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:
  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It's a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your "minecraft.jar" before doing anything! We don't want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside "minecraft.jar".
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the "Old-Fashioned" instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the "old-fashioned" instructions.

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it's even easier once you get passed the main part Here's the steps:
  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the "Old-Fashioned" installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. 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.
  4. Place the mod inside the "mods" folder.
  5. 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!
