[SOLVED] Pixelmon's pokémon don't move with SpongeForge

Hello! First time in this forum, well, not first time, I have already read some other discussions about playing Pixelmon with SpongeForge but nothing about my exact issue.

My problem is when I play on my server the Pokémon don’t move if I’m not close enough, please note this doesn’t happen without the SpongeForge mod.

I’ve tried changing sponge configs found on the directory with the same path, but with no luck.
The files I’m using are:

  • forge-1.12.2-14.23.5.2838-universal.jar as my server starter (sorry, don’t know how to call it instead of starter/executable since it’s a .jar)
  • spongeforge-1.12.2-2838-7.2.1
  • Pixelmon-1.12.2-7.2.2-server
latest.txt log of my server

Check the entity-activation-range in your sponge config. Set pixelmon=0

Yes! YES! Thank you :sob:

It’s fixed now x)

If is not much of a bother, would you mind to explain me what does “entity-activation-range” does and how did you know to name pixelmon or the mod to override it?

entity-activation-range is the distance where entities like vanilla mobs (cows, creepers, pigs, etc) and Pokemon will ‘activate’ or move around. If they’re out of range, they will stop moving so that’s why you see them frozen. You can turn on auto-populate to true in the sponge config so it will generate all the entities if you want to be more custom with it.
