The Weirding Gadget mod (1.18.1, 1.7.1) adds one block with the same name. This chunk loader was requested by some friends of mine. It allows chunk loading to be deactivated after people have not been on the server for a prolonged period.

- The Weirding Gadget is the sole block added by The Weirding Gadget. When placed, it will continually keep loaded a 3×3 chunks area centered on itself. When the player that placed it logs off the server, the Gadget will spin slower and slower, until it stops after 7 days, at which point it will no longer keep chunks loaded. When said player logs back on the server, the gadget reactivates itself and its countdown is reset.
- Any other player can right click the Gadget, resetting its countdown and adding themselves in the “tracked” list of the Gadget. This means that the Gadget will only start counting down when all tracked players are logged off, and will reset when any of them logs back.
