    As it is right now, unless a server specifically supports a higher distance, the highest render distance that you should bother to set with Optifine is Short + 32. Anything higher has no effect. This goes for single player as well (presumably due to changes in how singleplayer works). Just something to know when configuring your video settings.

    Server-side, view-distance is set to 9. That’s 144 blocks. Short is 64 blocks, so your setting is 96… seems off.

    Hm, it’d seem so. That’s odd, then. I’d invite you to try, though, adjusting the distances and see how far the chunks load out. At least visually, for me, the results from Short + 32, on out, are identical, the only difference is a drop in framerate.

    Do you have “Load Far” on?

    I’ve tried it both with and without “Load Far”. If you’d like, I can post a series of screenshots comparing different settings to demonstrate this more clearly.
