This guide will explain what it means to pre-generate your world and how you should do it properly.


🚧 Why Should I Use a World Border and Pre-Generate My World? 🚧

Minecraft's world creation is a process based on complex calculations. A world is generated dynamically as you play, meaning that the entire world is not created when you start playing, but it generates more and more as you play.

For example, the game starts with several generated chunks near your spawn. Then, as you start to explore, new chunks are generated along your path. So the game is generating new chunks and loading them as you travel. The process of generating new chunks when you explore can excessively slow down your game.

Setting a world border and pregenerating the chunks inside it removes this type of lag entirely, while still allowing you to have a world big enough for your players to explore forever.
