Requires the library mod Collective.

     This mod is part of The Vanilla Experience.
Configurable Despawn Timer is a minimalistic configurable mod which allows items to remain on the ground longer or shorter than the default lifespan. The maximum time an item entity can stay on the floor is 2147483647 ticks (=30,000 hours) , which is the highest possible integer value in the programming language Java.

Minecraft's default is 5 minutes. The mod's default is 10 minutes.

The ItemExpireEvent will still run after the altered lifespan, making it compatible with other mods.

Configurable: ( how do I configure? )
