SMP8 - Extreme Rendering V2 (pictures)

  1. A little more than two years ago, I posted this thread, and I have now decided to some more experimenting with extreme rendering (32-chunk rendering).



    To start this out, I will explain the process of this "experiment." The process requires the use of World Downloader, a Minecraft mod that downloads every chunk you see from a multiplayer server and puts it into a playable singleplayer world.

    Before I started up World Downloader, I spawned Incitatus and went to the upper left-hand corner of the EMC Town. Because World Downloader only downloads chunks that load up nearby, I had to ride my horse all over the town, which took me two hours and 26 minutes to accomplish... that doesn't mean I sat at my computer the whole time, though (I have a wireless keyboard). I also didn't have to ride my horse down EVERY street because EMC's six-chunk render distance allowed full residences and one-fourth of the far residences to load. For example, I had to ride down one street to the end of the map and then ride down through the middle of players' residences to the other end, and then ride down the street again. It was very repetitive. Back then, I didn't even cover enough ground to render 32 chunks of the town.

    Anyway, after two hours of "exploring" SMP8's town, I was finally finished - I disconnected and opened the singleplayer world... and then I went to bed after I shut down my computer. The next day, today, I explored the town with my render distance set to 32 chunks, and then I took some cool screenshots.

    TL;DR: I had to download the world due to EMC's six-chunk render distance cap, which took about two hours and 26 minutes. After that, I went to the singleplayer world to take some screenshots.
