I have a standard 6 door village with a breeder below it, and to the side I have an auto wheat farm with a villager in it, and it's working great. However, when I tried to build the same farm a bit further, using carrots this time, the villager inside it was just stuck to the wall, in the direction of the village.
I later found out that carrots are not the same as wheat as far as villagers are concerned, and the farmer wasn't interested in harvesting the carrots. I put another villager in the farm to see if they will throw food to each other - and they did. But both of them along with the baby villager are stuck in the corner, looking towards the village.
Q: Is there any specific distance that villagers need to be from the center of the village in order to behave normally?
