This adds a single block to the game the Chunk Loader! It keeps chunks constantlly loaded into memory, it keeps the games processes going even if the player is not in that area. A redstone signal will turn the block off. When off, the orb will come to a rest.
'''Only the owner of the block can open the GUI.'''
Right-clicking the block opens the GUI, providing the option to change the radius and shape of the area kept loaded. A square with a radius of 3 will keep 25 chunks loaded. Shapes include Square, Circle, Line X (straight line of chunks on the x-axis in game), and Line Z (straight line of chunks on the z-axis in game).
The 'Show Lasers' button toggles the rendering of the outline of the chunks loaded by this Chunk Loader. If too far away from the block, the lasers will stop rendering, but the chunks WILL remain loaded.
== Common Pitfalls ==
When chunk loading, be sure to cover the ''entire'' area of your build. If you fail to chunk load essential blocks, e.g. an [[Aqueous Accumulator]] providing water to [[Combustion Engine]]s, some machines may operate in unintended ways. Be sure to use the 'Show Lasers' button to see exactly where the cutoff point is for the loaded chunks.
