Could someone please explain the reason items disappear when you die a far distance from spawn?
Do you have any tips on how to reduce item loss? Or any suggestions that stop the items from disappearing all together?
From what I understand so far its due to chunks not loading, or unloading when you are too far away from them. I also understand from another question posted the items to disappear 5 minutes after death. But I'm wanting to know is distance not time.
A general answer would be nice, but what I would really like to know are the numbers. How far exactly do I have from the spawn point until I run the risk of disappearing items? And are there things in single player and/or multiplayer I can do to remove this hazard? Or at the least increase my chances of regaining the items lost on death from a far.
