Render Distance is an option that can be set from the Video menu in Settings.
Render Distance changes the number of Chunks that are visible from a distance at once. There are 3-5 possible settings for Render Distance:
- 4 chunks
- 6 chunks
- 8 chunks
- 10 chunks
- 12 chunks
- 14 chunks
- The fewer chunks that are included, the faster each frame can be rendered, resulting in a higher FPS and low lag.
- After Update 0.16.0, to change the Render Distance, the Player must check the 'Show Advanced Video Settings' box.
- Before Update 0.8.0, the maximum render distance was very low, however, this has since been changed.
