- Minecraft Bedrock has a problem with the world’s generation;
- In the expanses of the map, huge holes are formed in the ground;
- Mojang does not intend to fix the bug.
Minecraft has had problems with world creation in the expanses of the map for a long time. Most players have probably heard of the so-called Far Lands that appeared in many older versions of the game. Over time, Mojang got rid of this problem and it seemed like it was history. Recently, however Minecraft bedrock 1.18, began to show a similar phenomenon.
Individual players began reporting world disruptions that occurred in the game about three million blocks from the original spawn point. It appears that Huge holes in the ground are created in mountains with more than 150 blocks reaching the bottom of the map. Sometimes they can be so large that it is difficult to see them fully without increasing the rendering area significantly.
Interestingly, Mojang has already addressed the reported issues, but the response has been surprising. In the mistake report, you can read that it has been marked as “solved”. However, the supposed solution is missing (resolution: will not be fixed). So it looks like the bug cannot be fixed or it is just not worth fixing.
In part, this decision may be understandable. The problem affects areas of the map that are so remote that most players will never discover them. To achieve them, you’d have to use commands that only a small part of the community uses. Regular players are limited to a small part of the total world generated by the game.
However, those who are familiar with the phenomenon are quite happy with it. Generator bugs create mysterious and unique structures that are of interest to many Minecraft Fans. The same was the case with the already removed Far Lands, which even became some sort of attraction and some players loved to explore.
