The world anchor is a block used to load 9 chunks in a 3x3 area around it. This is useful because it allows automated factories and such to stay active even if a player is not in the vicinity!
Unfortunatly using these blocks can create serious lag. If the game is low on memory (on older or low-end computers), it may force some chunks to unload. Placing multiple world anchors is not recommended, and will cause even high end computers to lag, so use them wisely!
Right-clicking the block will open up an interface, this allows the player to put Ender Pearls in it. Ender Pearls are required for the block to run, One Ender Pearl lasts for 12 hours.
Note: Pressing F9 will show purple particles in all chunks being affected by world anchors or anchor cart.
