Forcing the spawn area to be insanely big generates everything in those chunks. Only problem is I apparently have greatly underestimated the time it takes to flush them to disk. It's been about 4 hours now and 2/3'rds of the .mca files under region are still basically empty. It took a LOT less time when the area was 4x smaller. I guess there is some sort of non-linear increase of processing time for some reason (garbage collector/memory trashing overhead?).

Every time the radius is bigger, it takes more chunks to be made than the previous size. As the sides of the square of loaded chunks gets longer, so does the number of chunks Minecraft has to make, which would explain the non-linear increase.

145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.

I see this too much.

Yes, obviously, and I already accounted for that. Problem was, increasing the total amount of chunks by 2x increased the saving time by MUCH more than 2x.

• you understand what a log function is right?

• Based on how he described it I'd say it is a exponential or quadratic function, not a log...

• Maybe it is not linear due to cross chunk interactions internally?

Its obviously not linear because cubes are made up of 3 dimensions, not 1. Duh!

• A Chunk is not a cube. Also not relevant

Chunks are cuboids.

• But that means chunk extends cuboid, not chunk extends cube (and cube extends chunk). So, Cube c = (Cube) new Chunk() will get you an Exception!

He said twice as much Chunks, not twice as much World length/width, meaning it should still be a x2 and not more. His Problem is a completly different one.

Also the MC World is 2 Dimensional in regards of Chunks, since every Chunk has the same Height.
