I started a survival world a few weeks ago and spawned near to a village. I set up my base about 60 blocks away from it and decided to trap the villages I needed in their houses by blocking up the doors. I came back, and all the villagers have gone. I’m so confused, can they de spawn, or were they somehow killed? (Where the doors where I’d put wooden planks and leave one space open so they could look outside lmaoo)
baby zombies can fit through 1-block spaces and can jump 1-block high. If you left a 1 block space where the doors were, baby zombies probably dined on villager that night.
That said, mobs that are 33+ blocks away from the nearest player have 5 seconds realtime to do anything, after which point they become essentially a dirt block textured with the mob skin (they will literally just stand there doing nothing until they despawn/die).
