I have a cactus farm, on a Minecraft server, which works perfectly when I'm near. But there isn't any cactus that grows when I'm disconnected or far away from the farm.
I know that's because the chunks are unloaded, so I tested by setting the spawn point just next to the farm (because chunks are loaded at the spawn). I also tested the command
forceload, which is provided by Minecraft itself, and also the plugin KeepChunks.
But none of these methods work. In fact, the Redstone circuit remains loaded and works, but the plants don't grow.
Do you know a way to load a chunk as if a player is in it? Or a way where the plants in the targeted chunk grow?
PS: My server runs on Craftbukkit 1.14.4
