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


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

The Minecraft world creation is a process based on complex calculations. What is to know is that the world is generated dynamically as you play, meaning that the full world is not created when you start playing, but it generates more and more as you play.

For example, the game is starting with several generated chunks near the place where you started, then, as you start to explore and travel, new chunks are generated according to the path you choose. So the game is generating new chunks, then loading them so you can explore more and more. This process of generating the chunks can be troublesome, generating 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 from the start a radius where you want your players to play/ explore, then use a plugin/ mod to pre-generate the chunks from that zone, so when players will explore that zone the game will just have to load the already existing chunks instead of generating them.
