I have built an iron farm somewhere far away from my actual spawn chunks in my single player world. In hindsight, this was a dumb idea, but I can't exactly change it anymore. I'd like to keep the thing running all the time, so I'm looking for a way to keep the chunks loaded.
I'm running minecraft 1.12.1, is it possible at the moment? I have looked at some chunk loader mods, but chicken chunk loader hasn't been updated yet, and the others simply didn't work.
I have tried moving the spawn chunks, but that hasn't done anything either.
Edit: I have worked this out with IronAnvil, and it ended up being a render setting in optifine which didn't load them correctly somehow. It has been working fine after I reset my optifine settings to default.
