Changing View Distance on Your Minecraft Server

View Distance is a configuration option for Minecraft servers that sets the number of chunks that are visible on all directions around a player. The View Distance option is one of the many ways to reduce lag for your server so it runs more smoothly and properly for you and your players. This option can be found in the server.properties file located in the files tab of your Skynode server.

Go to your Skynode panel page: https://panel.skynode.pro

Navigate to the Configuration tab on the left hand side of your server's settings.

Right under the tab, you will see the server.properties button.



Scroll down, locate the option called View Distance. It should be on the right hand side of the server.properties page. By default, this is set to 10. If you are experiencing lag on your server, we here at Skynode recommend lowering that number, thus helping reduce lag on your Minecraft server.



After, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Save button.



Restart your server for your View Distance changes to apply.
