- Spawn a mob using a spawn egg.
- Travel far enough away that the mob is outside of simulation distance.
- Travel back to the mob
The mob is gone.
The mob is still there.
So I was trying to make a witch farm and to figure out despawn mechanics. In my testing, I used a creeper spawn egg to test how far away I most be to have the farm work. I flew multiple chunks away (what would be more than enough to despawn a creeper) and came back to a still spawned creeper. This is back by how a cow that was near the creeper had despawned and the creeper had not. Please fix this. To other players please test this as well to confirm my suspicions.
