      Description

      The bug

      When a chunk is unloaded and reloaded, villagers will reset their iron golem respawn timer, causing a new iron golem to spawn in less than 30 seconds after the last golem was spawned.

      This causes golems to be able to spawn in very large quantities even if there are already a lot more golems present nearby, potentially causing performance issues.

      To reproduce

      1. Download and load the attached world: 2020-03-14_00-02-27_Iron golem spawning.zip (version 20w11a or newer)
      2. Toggle the lever
      3. An iron golem will spawn and you get teleported 10,000 blocks away
      4. Press the button
      5. Wait a few seconds
        Another golem is spawned
