Render Distance in options

Render Distance is an option that can be set from the Video menu in Settings.

Function

Render Distance changes the number of Chunks that are visible from a distance at once. The option has a range of settings which depend on the device used.

The minimum (across devices) are 5 chunks, and maximum of 80 chunks. The range is most likely related to the memory available to the device when the game is started.

Trivia

  • The fewer chunks that are included, the faster each frame can be rendered, resulting in a higher FPS and low lag.
  • From Update 0.16.0 until Update 1.2, the option to change the Render Distance was in the 'Show Advanced Video Settings' section.
  • Before Update 0.8.0, the maximum render distance was very low, however, this has since been changed.
