Now that you know how to create and load chunks, the next question is: how do you reload chunks in Micecraft?
There are a few different ways to reload chunks in Minecraft. The easiest way is to use the /chunkload command. This command will reload all of the chunks in your current world.
If you want to reload a single chunk, you can use the /fixmychunk command. When you run this command, it will reload only the chunks that are next to your current location.
If you want to configure either of these commands so they run automatically for you, you need to edit your server properties/configuration file (serversettings.txt). You can find more information on how to do this in the Minecraft server documentation.
The final way to reload chunks is by using a chunk loader. A chunk loader is an item that you can place in your world that will automatically reload chunks for you. There are a few different types of chunk loaders available, so be sure to choose the one that is right for you.

What is chunks in minecraft?
Minecraft chunks are 16x16x128 blocks. They are used to store all objects in the world including terrain, mobs, and [player] entities. In general, a single chunk can load an area of 48×48 blocks (but is limited to 41×41).
Chunks are automatically generated around players up to a certain distance from the world spawn point. As players move around in the game, new chunks are generated as needed and old chunks are unloaded.
Chunks on multiplayer servers that do not change too often can be shared among different players, but most of the time they need to be saved in memory on the server itself. This helps reduce lag and increases performance since the server doesn’t have to generate every chunk that a player visits.
How To See Chunks In Minecraft
Well, this is commonly asked by Minecraft players, but sadly there’s no way to find out where your chunks are exactly. There’s an image floating around that claims it can be used to see where your chunks are, but this guide will show you how to do it in a better way.
First off, download and install MCEdit
Once you have installed MCEdit, open it up and click on the third icon from the top left which looks like a box with a tree inside it. This should load all your chunks into the scene. Now press CTRL+A to select everything in your world and then CTRL+C to copy them all somewhere else.
Next, open up the world editor (you may need to turn it on under the “File” menu) and find one of your chunks. Click on it once to select it and then again but hold SHIFT while you do this. This will copy an exact replica into your clipboard that can then be pasted back into MCEdit.
Now, in MCEdit, paste the chunk into the scene and press CTRL+F to fit it to the screen. You should now see a few red squares around your chunk. These are the boundaries of your chunk and anything that is outside of them will not be loaded in-game. If you want to move your chunk, just click and drag it around with your mouse.
You can also use MCEdit to edit your world. For example, if you want to add a building or some other structure, just select the chunk and start editing away. When you’re done, press CTRL+S to save your changes and then copy the chunk back into your world.
How To Refresh Chunks In Minecraft
If you’re looking to build a big project in Minecraft, one of the most annoying things that can happen is your chunks not loading. If this happens your world will look like it’s just a solid sea of green or grey blocks. Here I’ll show you how to fix this problem so you can get back to building again.
Step 1: Make Sure The Problem Is In Your Chunks
This is a problem that can occur when your PC just doesn’t have enough memory to handle the size of the map you’re playing on. To check this, look at the far right side of your mini-map and see how many chunks are listed there. If it’s anything over 30 you may have a problem.
Step 2: Reduce The Loaded Chunks
The easiest way to fix this is to reduce the number of chunks that are loaded at once. This will also help keep your computer from running out of memory while you play. To do this, press Escape and click on Options, then in the bottom right corner you’ll see a slider for Chunks. Reduce it to 16 or even 8 if you’re really having problems.
Step 3: Close Other Programs
If you’re still having problems after reducing the chunks, the next thing you can try is closing other programs that may be running in the background. This includes programs like Skype, Google Chrome, and even your anti-virus software. These programs can hog up all the memory on your PC, which will leave less for Minecraft to use.
Step 4: Update Your Graphics Card Drivers
If you’ve tried all of the above and you’re still having problems, the next thing you can. That’s all there is to it! If you have any questions, feel free to ask them below and I’ll do my best to answer them. Thanks for reading!
