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


πŸ—ΊοΈ How Does Minecraft Generate Your World πŸ—ΊοΈ

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 more and more. The process of generating chunks can create performance issues and lag.


🚧 Why Should I Pre-Generate My World 🚧

As we already said, the process of generating new chunks when you explore is slowing down your game excessively.

A good way to reduce lag on your server is to set up a zone where you want your players to play and then use a plugin or mod to pre-generate the chunks of that zone. Doing that will have the game load already existing chunks rather than generating them.
