What is parity? This category is designed just for features that exist but work one way on one platform, and another way on a different platform. Bugs are not parity! Please read the intro post before you post!

    In fact, I wouldn't mind at all having the spawn location be a default auto-created "ticking area" in Bedrock to match Java "spawn chunks", with Bedrock's ability to change & expand the ticking area in Java.

    You seem to know about the forceload command, but don't seem to know that it is literally the exact same as tickingarea but better.

    In fact it is not. You won't have crops growing because inside of a forceloaded chunk there are no block ticks if it is outside of an 8 chunk radius from the player. I already verified it for myself by planting wheat, running off 10 chunks and waiting. Even after 1 hour there was no growth.

    The Minecraft wiki has a page with an overview over how this works: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Commands/forceload

    That has nothing to do with the command itself, rather a disparity in how the versions of the game process loaded chunks.
