    Yes, but in some cases it can be different.. i found in unloaded chunk some stuff belonging to other players (garbage like rotten flesh, bones..) and when i checked it was from month before

    I think it's 5 minutes of the chunk with items being active. So, if you travel far, die, and travel again, and nobody else passes by, you can retrieve your stuff, because the chunk unloads if nobody is there. I did get back my items, a couple of times at least.

    Towards the end of today I was experiencing some lag (I'm pretty sure on my end so dont worry about that), and was jumped by some sneaky zombies and crashed mid fight. Logged back on, was back within 3 minutes, and everything was gone. There werent any creepers nearby, so I dont know how it all disappeared so fast. This thread and the internet confirm that item despawn is 5 minutes, so I'm just really confused by it all.

    Thanks,

    My guess is that either according to your connection you did not make it in time or either it's TFC which, as you might know, handles stuff a bit differently. Dropped items sometimes glitch out (especially in caves) and the algorithm for stacking dropped items sometimes does the thing in TFC.

    Just to be clear, item despawn time is not guaranteed by time but game ticks, and is defaulted to 6.000 ticks (which gives 5mins with 20 ticks per sec) in loaded chunk.

    In case you didn't do the research, look here: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Item_(entity)#Behavior
