This isn't a "how do I stop npcs from wandering?" question - I want to build one of the npcs homes a bit further away from the rest, and was hoping to build it close enough so the npc will still wander into the town sometimes.

So - is there a specific maximum range which an npc will wander?


Yes. Whenever NPC wanders to far from their house, they will automatically Teleport to their respective house.


No there is not. NPC's can walk freely, if there is a space they can't walk into and get out of they won't walk there. So basically make a simple room with 2 low and 2 wide blocks mined on the outside of the house (both sides if you have 2 doors)

    Okay, I'm done attempting to improve your posts. Punctuation. It is your friend. Capitalization is also, but only in moderation. – Frank Jan 8 '15 at 23:20

    You seem to have some good, useful knowledge for this site, but you really need to put more effort into your questions/answers. Make them readable and put some time into thinking about how you're presenting them, and you'll get a great reception here. – Chris Hayes Jan 9 '15 at 0:55
