  1. Hey i have a problem with my lottery system on my plot, When the blocks get dropped they come together in stacks, can you fix this?
    Owner of the Empire minecraft, i put the video on youtube because i had no other way of getting it too you... so please staff members who see this send this to the head developers/owner so they can see this and see if its possible to fix this, i know it is! Thank you everyone!

    The blocks get into stacks from to far or close from each other! PLEASE FIX ASAP <3
  2. That is intentional. As I understand it, it is done to reduce load on the server and clients. While you are mining, for example, a stack of cobble would be represented by one entity rather than 64.

  3. Pretty much what Pab said. It's intentional to reduce server and client lag.

  7. Just space the items out by 5 blocks, and they won't group.
  8. also lotteries are illegal per emc rules.

  11. I prefer to view these sorts of things as learning experiences. Consider your work an experiment. Now that you understand what is happening you can work around it or even find a way to use it to your advantage.

  12. Its a Spigot optimisation thing. Grouping items together is less laggy than single items.
