I've been hosting a local server from my PC so me & my kid can play together. The max build height has reached so high that when I'm up there, the landscape below looks like shit (drops off to nothing).
I got the bright idea that allocating more RAM to both my local client and the server would improve my situation. Turns out that this kills the server.
I have RAM o'plenty [(16 GB) suck it, Snowflake]. Some precursory investigation has led me to believe that less is more when it comes to Minecraft, in regards to RAM allocation. Stock settings gave the best performance in terms of gameplay, but I want to maximize my view of the world. I like to explore and would rather not travel towards an open location only to find that it's actually filled with blocks I don't want to climb or descend.
Here's my Speccy specs
Java build 1.8.0_25-b18
Any tips or recommendations? Overclocking the CPU will take some heavy duty walk through, just sayin.
Thanks in advance for assistance offered
