  1. Hi guys,

    Trying to remember - will a redstone current travel into an unloaded chunk? I can't remember.

    I want to get a large current covering a large area in a circle, but can't recall if the current will travel into chunks that aren't occupied / loaded.

  2. 13-15 Blocks. Its in-between them :)

    EDIT: I dont think redstone can be active in an unrendered chunk
  3. Redstone will not be active in unloaded chunks. But that is 5 chunks around you.
  4. Redstone will not work in an unloaded chunk. An unloaded chunk doesn't exist until you're in it so the redstone isn't there and will not travel.

  5. Solution: Change your render distance to far. Or get Optifine and go Extreme.
  6. Hm.. Rgr that! Thanks!
