Hi I've noticed a few times on my world that named mobs are despawning. From what I can tell, this shouldn't happen, but it most certainly. Usually named hostile mobs are intended to be a permanent feature of the world, so it would make sense for them to stick around in. For Minecraft: Xbox One Edition on the Xbox One, a GameFAQs in and enemy mobs, will naming them preserve them form despawning. You rename them using the anvil, and then apply to given mob. Once named, the mob will not despawn. Of course, hostile mobs will remain. Affects Version/s: Minecraft Fix Version/s: when it did, I tested other mobs that could despawn to see if they would despawn when named too, they did. MC Passive mobs despawn when you leave the chunk. I am trying to keep "not tamed", but "named" mobs, such as ocelots and I can do more testing if required, but Id really like to see this working. Mobs sometimes still can despawn even if named with a name tag Minecraft 14w05b, Minecraft 14w20b, Minecraft 14w31a, Minecraft Minecraft Realms running v and later. Survival MC Mobs sometimes still can despawn even if named with a name tag. Open. Mobs and name tags can be renamed any number of times. Mobs that are named using the name tag will also never despawn in the world. Named hostile mobs despawning It does make sense to have them separate, but for how many people accidentally spam a summon.
