This area was corrected unintentionally as part of new terrain generation introduced in Beta 1.8.

De Verre Landen was een gebied dat de "grens" van een "oneindige" wereld was in versies tot Beta 1.8. De afstand vanaf het midden van de Minecraft wereld naar het begin van de Verre Landen, 12,550,820 meter, is ongeveer 31% van de omtrek van de Evenaar. Waneer spelers bij de Verre Landen aankwamen, zouden ze een enorme overmaat aan lag krijgen en het terein zou ernstig worden verstoord. Volgens Notch, zou de verstoring kunnen worden verholpen, zoals het in 1.8 was (wat resulteerde in de verdwijning van de Verre Landen). Een bericht op Notch's blog (Engels)[1] geeft aan dat deze fix per ongeluk was en dat het waarschijnlijk een onbedoelde bijeffect had voor de grote veranderingen in de generatie van het terrein in 1.8. In 1.8, in plaats van de Verre Landen die begonnen te genereren vanaf 12,550,820 meter vanaf het midden van de wereld, eindigde het speelbare terrein abrupt op 30,000,000 meter, en nep chunks (zij zijn niet massief, er kan doorheen gevallen worden) begonnen te genereren. Een zekere teken dat iemand het einde van de wereld heeft bereikt, is dat het licht niet meer werkt na de 30,000,000 grens. Wanneer de speler ongeveer 34 blokken vliegt over deze grens bevriest het spel en begint het te trillen, de speler kan niet worden gezien in de derde persoon. Er is geen manier om dit te vermijden en de speler moet een nieuwe wereld starten of zijn positie veranderen in het level.dat bestand. Dit gebeurt niet in SMP want het spel laat je tot 32,000,000 meter reizen tot het zegt "Illegal Position" (Illegale Positie). Versies tussen Alpha 1.2.0 (Halloween Update) en Beta 1.7.3 rendeerde nep chunks buiten een limiet van 32,000,000 meter; als je probeert over hun te lopen zou je dood gaan in De Leegte. Vanaf het begin van Infdev helemaal tot de Halloween Update, eindigde de wereld abrupt op 32,000,000 meter, en als je de grens verlaat, laat het spel je vastzitten in plaats van dood te gaan.

Naar de Verre Landen gaan[bewerken]

Het was zeer moeilijk om bij de Verre Landen te komen, tenminste, het kostte veel tijd (ongeveer 820 uur lopen). Om dit te versnellen kon je een level.dat bewerkingstool gebruiken om de speler te teleporteren.

De grens tussen de normale map en Verre Landen (waar de map verstoord terein begon te genereren) vond plaats op X/Z ±12.550.821.

Het gecodeerde limiet waar de chunks overschreven zouden worden is op ±34.359.738.368, dit is ongeveer 23% van de afstand tussen de aarde en de zon. Op 116 van dit limiet begonnen locaties van items, monsters, padvinden en andere zaken die 32-bit integers gebruiken zich raar te gedragen, dit had meestal als gevolg dat Minecraft crashte.

At X/Z of ±1.798∙10308, the position of the player, represented by a double-precision floating point number, will overflow. (More info here?)

Using Single Player Commands, it was very easy to get to the Far Lands using teleportation. After pressing the chat key (default "T") to open up the console-like input window, using the "teleport" command (or its abbreviation, "t") followed by X, Y, and Z coordinates will allow the player to go wherever they want. For example:

  • To get to where the Edge Far Lands' wall was, try "t 12550820 129 0". Make sure either flying is turned on or damage is turned off, as otherwise you'll fall to your death.
  • To get to where the Corner Far Lands was (the walls' intersection), try "t 12550820 129 12550820". Again, make sure you're protected from fall damage.

Unfortunately, there was severe lag, and slower computers used to crash upon this teleportation. Opening a GUI helped the Far Lands render much, much faster. You can do this by pausing (pressing Escape) or opening the Single Player Commands prompt again. When you venture out farther above and into the far lands, the probability increases that a "bad chunk" will appear. A bad chunk is a chunk filled with terribly corrupt data, and is the cause of sudden lag spikes that can easily make Minecraft crash.

Lag voorkomen in de Verre Landen[bewerken]

If you're using Single Player Commands, you can get rid of the lag by using several commands which include, but are not limited to:

  • the killall command to kill all mobs which will be about 4000 per 20 seconds. This should be used at least three times per minute to prevent severe lag from occurring.
  • the drops command to stop blocks from dropping items, so gravel and sand that fall, will not cause any lag.
  • the light command to make all blocks as bright as possible so you can actually see the layers underneath the top layer. Also helps with frame rate.

This all will increase your frame rate to a value close to what would be experienced in the "normal" map.

If you don't want to use mods, you can also alleviate some of the lag by setting your game mode to peaceful via options menu.

Geografie van de Verre Landen[bewerken]

A cartograph of the Far Lands.

Both areas of the Far Lands feature extremely strange terrain, although they are significantly different. In both zones, any area beneath sea level, excluding regular caves, will be flooded with water. The Far Lands' structure is dependent on the seed used for generating the map, although the general patterns remain the same. Beyond X/Z of ±32,000,000, chunks are treated as permanently nonexistent, and will not generate, even though they may appear to. This value is hardcoded in the source code of Minecraft. This means it cannot be changed without editing the source files.

The Far Lands will generate biomes but most biomes will be indistinguishable except by the color of the grass. Desert biomes will be covered in sand and snow-covered biomes will be covered with snow, excluding the top of the map (because there's no space for the snow cover up there). Trees will generate somewhat normally, but can only be found in the upper areas of the map due to the need for grass. However, if you open Single Player Commands, the biome will always be Forest.

Ores can be found up to their respective maximum heights just like in the normal world. Unfortunately, due to the flooding, everything except for coal is difficult, if not impossible, to acquire. In the solid areas of the Far Lands, normal caves will generate but will be limited and small. Along with the caves, dungeons (extremely rare) and lakes can be found in solid areas. Water and lava springs can be found out in the open and in caves.

Much of the open space in both areas is shrouded in darkness and thus hostile mobs run rampant, making the Far Lands as a whole incredibly dangerous. This is especially problematic in the Corner Far Lands due to its layered structure. The flooded zones are filled with squid.

In the Sky Dimension, the Far Lands are not half flooded with water and bedrock does not form at lower levels.

Rand van de Verre Landen (De Loop)[bewerken]

The boundary of the Far Lands Edge (that is, where it meets the regular map) looks like a solid wall, all the way to the top of the map (Y-coordinate 127) that is filled with gaping holes perpendicular to the edge. These holes are extremely long, perhaps infinite, and on the whole seem to change very little no matter how deep the player ventures. They can be blocked, either partially or completely, but such blockages are rare and temporary. This "wall of Swiss cheese" pattern continues beneath ground level, all the way to the bottom of the map, and seems to be partially caused by a large one-dimensional distortion in the map generator's output.

Hoek van de Verre Landen (De Stack)[bewerken]

At a corner, when two perpendicular Edge Far Lands sections meet, the Corner Far Lands begin to generate. Unlike the infinite-length holes in the Edge Far Lands, the Corner Far Lands contains more normal terrain. This terrain is "stacked" on top of itself to create a bizarre sandwich with layers of ground and air, which gives it its nickname. Each layer looks like a gigantic floating continent, hovering over the next layer, which is shadowed.

The majority of the generated world is Corner Far Lands, as the "normal" map (before 12,550,821) only makes the center of the world, and the Edge Far Lands only makes its continued sides.

The number of layers isn't always the same, and varies between three to five. Layers can be grouped into three categories:

  • The top layer. This layer exists at the absolute top of the map. Occasionally there can be a lower area that isn't shadowed (this is technically a dry layer). The lower area is where a majority of the trees and passive mobs can be found, as the top layer receives almost all of the sunlight. Due to the lack of space the area at the absolute top can't have trees or mobs.
  • The dry layers. These generate slightly flatter than normal terrain and have grass, despite the darkness. At sea level massive floating beaches can be found, which will collapse if modified. Hostile mobs are very common here due to being in the shadow of the top layer. Rarely, there are holes in the top layer that allow sunlight to reach these layers. Caves that have one of these layers as their "surface" can occasionally be carved out of dirt instead of stone. These layers have cave-like ceilings made out of stone, gravel and dirt.
  • The flooded layers. Like the dry layers, these generate somewhat flat terrain, but it is comprised primarily of stone. Sand and sandstone will show up down here, even up to 30 meters below sea level. Except for coal, all the ores can only be found in these layers.

Sometimes there are extremely tall pillars of gravel that stretch from the ground to the ceiling of a layer. Likewise, some of the beaches that collapse will create pillars of sand all the way down to the ground, despite there not being that much sand to begin with. The Corner Far Lands is also prone to having near-perfect diagonal lines being carved into the ceilings or floors of layers. If traced, these lines all intersect at the corner (X/Z ±12,550,821). This seems similar to how the Edge Far Lands have a consistent pattern along lines perpendicular to their edge, but is much less pronounced.

In De Nether[bewerken]

The Nether Edge Far Lands look identical to the regular Edge Far Lands, except with Nether blocks. They're constructed out of Netherrack with some Soul Sand mixed in. Glowstone will be found in coral-like structures like the rest of the Nether. Both the floor and ceiling bedrock layers will be present, as well as the lava ocean (at Y-coordinate 31). The Nether Corner Far Lands also look identical in nature to their real-world counterparts (although not necessarily exactly the same). They have a similar stack of layers and contain layers flooded with lava (at levels 31 and below) instead of water.

In the Nether, the terrible lag associated with the regular Far Lands will not occur. This is because there is no sand and very little gravel in the Nether.

If a nether portal is created in the Far Lands of the Nether, entering will cause the purple teleportation animation to continue to swirl around your screen.

De Maan Mod[bewerken]

The far lands on the moon look completely different than the far lands in any other dimension, although it almost looked like normal terrain on the moon, The little differences is that there were more craters than usuall.

De Aether Mod[bewerken]

The loop (Edge) of the far lands look more horizontal and have more space in between, The Stack (Corner) of the far lands has more separate layers than usual, Although it's narrower. The far lands would lock up on users if the difficulty was not on peaceful, although the framerate may be normal on peaceful, Falling down the far lands in the aether may return you to the farlands in the overworld.

Effecten van de Verre Landen[bewerken]

The most noticeable side effect of the Far Lands, where the map takes longer to update according to the player's location.

There are many effects that will be noticed after traveling millions of blocks away from the center of the map. The very first effect that will be noticed is the jumpy or stuttering movement of the map, which isn't directly related to the Far Lands themselves but instead to floating-point precision errors. This jumpy movement is notable even at X/Z of 250,000. Players will experience extreme framerate drops and very high CPU usage, which will continue until Minecraft freezes completely. The framerate drops do not occur in multiplayer servers, though it will, depending on the server computer's RAM, make the server itself lag. In both Single-Player and multiplayer, the intense lag that is characteristic of the Far Lands is caused by massive numbers of falling sand or gravel entities. This in turn is caused (like most of the rest of the Far Lands' strange effects) by more floating-point precision errors.

As the player journeys even deeper into the Far Lands, the effects worsen to the point where the game is unplayable. At X/Z ±32,000,000,[2] block physics stop functioning correctly. Lighting doesn't work and the blocks, although they appear to be there, aren't solid. If the player tries to walk on these blocks, he or she will fall into the Void. Because of this, it's impossible to get even close to X/Z ±34,359,738,368 or ±2,147,483,648 without the assistance of editors or mods. At excessive X/Z positions, World Renderer no longer works, or takes incredibly long times and uses most, if not all CPU usage. It then becomes almost impossible to close Minecraft without the Task manager.

Weather is not affected by the Far Lands directly but is by their terrain. Lightning bolts that hit surfaces at the top of the map (Y-coordinate 127) will be invisible and will not cause fire. The particles created when rain hits these surfaces will be black instead of blue. Snow will not accumulate on these surfaces either (because there's no space). As of Beta 1.6, these effects are unique to the Far Lands as it's impossible to artificially place solid blocks at layer 127.

In Beta 1.8 en erna[bewerken]

The Corner Far Lands in Minecraft 1.0.0, normal terrain is at the bottom of the image. Note there is neither sand nor clay on the seafloor.

In beta 1.8 the strange terrain may be gone, but some of the effects aren't. After X/Z ±30,000,000 the world will start generating fake chunks in which lighting doesn't work past this point and blocks stop clipping. Fake chunks are composed of dirt, stone(or Netherrack), water and lava only. Going into the fake chunks will result in falling into the Void, and, subsequently, the player's death. If flying is used, going about 34 blocks out of the limit will cause you to be stuck, being able to use your inventory and look around, but not to move. Also, the clouds will act strangely, moving at abnormally high speeds. Reloading the save should fix the clouds, but the position glitch will still be present, It will be impossible to escape. Also, at excessive X/Z positions, particles (rain, water, snow, etc.) fail to appear staggered, instead forming rows of flat "panes". The Far Lands do not lag in 1.8. In 1.0.0 the fire of torches will be in/on a block next to it, instead of on the torch. Piston heads will disappear when the block is activated and will have the same effect as sand does when falling (then disappears). Paintings can be placed over paintings near the far lands. Also, the floating book in the enchantment table seems to behave abnormally when a player is moving near it. Redstone appears either extremely distorted, with stretched graphics, it can appear misplaced, or it can appear completely invisible, but the highlight box still appears indicating where redstone is placed. Cauldrons, when looked from the inside, one of the sides is translucent, and the graphics for that side appear one block away from the cauldron on the opposite side of where the texture is missing from. Highlight box for cake fails to appear correctly. Flames from a monster spawner only appear on one side of the block. The graphic for end portal block fail to appear correctly, Redstone ore particles are only in the corners.

As of 12w18a, the phantom chunks will start generating chunks as of the regular world and you could go over the 34 block limit.

Map Editors[bewerken]

When Viewing the Far Lands in a Minecraft 3D map editor, you will encounter errors. In MCEdit, the selection cubes start to distort and the map distorts when viewing.

In eerdere versies van Minecraft[bewerken]

Very little is known about the Far Lands of older versions of Minecraft for many reasons; they had no official name, and few knew of their existence. Fewer still tried to make them known to the world, and so they remained unknown. When Notch mentioned them on his blog[1] and gave them an official nickname, interest took hold.

In Infdev, although the Far Lands existed, many of the side effects didn't. However, fire particles and doors would act strange. There was no lag or stuttering movement, and beyond X/Z ±32,000,000, the blocks would simply not render. Walking off the edge would cause the player to become stuck in a glitched position, unable to escape.[3][4]

It has been confirmed that in Alpha v1.1.2, the blocks would not render beyond X/Z ±32,000,000, like older Infdev versions.[2] The fake chunks started appearing in Alpha 1.2.0, the Halloween Update.



  • The Far Lands spawn hostile mobs at a rate far higher than any natural chunk, due to the sheer amount of space in absolute darkness. In the Corner Far Lands, the spawn rate likely approaches the maximum possible because the stacked terrain works like a mob tower.
  • The flat plane at the very top of the Corner Far Lands tends to light incorrectly in day-night transitions. This is because the sunlight calculation doesn't work when the entire chunk is blocked at Y-coordinate 127.
  • Even traveling through the Nether, it would take 102 hours of walking in a straight line to get to the Far Lands.
  • Entering a Portal which would take you to either world's Far Lands will cause Minecraft to crash. e.g. Building a portal at 2,000,000 in the Nether would take you to 16,000,000 in the Overworld, but this would cause a crash. The same cannot be done vice versa, because building a Portal which will take you to 12,000,000 in the Nether can only be done at X/Z of over 96,000,000 in the Overworld, that is, a distance 3 times greater than the point beyond which blocks can not be placed anymore.
  • When at the Far Lands, fences no longer have a collision with mobs or the player.
  • If the player places a Painting, it will be off by a few blocks from where it should be.
  • The Edge Far Lands' average block composition: 36% Stone, 25% Air, 23% Water, 10% Dirt/Grass, 2% Bedrock, and 4% others. (Based on a 14x14 chunk selection)
  • The Corner Far Lands' average block composition: 40% Stone, 16% Air, 28% Water, 10% Dirt/Grass, 2% Bedrock, and 4% others. (Based on a 14x14 chunk selection)
  • Even though Beta 1.6 made it impossible to place solid blocks at layer 127, the Far Lands' flat "ceiling" still gets generated there.
  • Because of the debates over renaming Endermen to "Far Landers," Notch jokingly suggested to rename the Far Lands to The End instead.[5]
  • Notch still hasn't confirmed if he will re-add the Far Lands to the game, since it's almost impossible to get there without hacks or Single Player Commands.
  • Kurt (YouTube username "kurtjmac" at "farlandsorbust"[1]) is attempting to walk to the Far Lands without any hacks, cheats or mods, documenting his progress on video.
    • Because the Far Lands no longer exist as of the Beta 1.8 update, the Minecraft world in which Kurt is walking to the Far Lands remains in version Beta 1.7.3.
    • As of November 12th, 2011, he is 2.33% of the way, having traveled 292,202 blocks west, straying 15,181 blocks North or 544 miles west while straying 28 miles north.
    • Kurt has begun to encounter early graphical glitches associated with the Far Lands, such as "block-lag" (caused by floating-point precision errors).
    • He has been doing this as a walk-a-thon fundraiser for Child's Play Charity.
    • His series Far Lands or Bust centers around what's on his mind and answering viewer questions.
  • The Far Lands could cause major decrease in FPS, freezing, and crashing.
  • Even though the Far Lands themselves were removed, some of the bugs still happen, such as particle displacing. This can be seen if a torch is placed; the flame/smoke will be off-centered. Also, redstone looks weird; it expands outside the block boundaries.
  • If one gets stuck 34 blocks past the 30.000.000 mark, and look around, ones viewmodel will be out of place.
