After Mojang had released version 1.13, chunk generation got a lot more resource intensive for Minecraft Servers. Because of this, it is really important you pregenerate your world before making your server public. In this article we will go through how you can do this!
To pregenerate your world on a Spigot/Paper/Tuinity server you can use a plugin called Chunky.
If you are using Vanilla, Fabric or Forge you will need to find another way to pregenerate your world.
Step 1: Install Chunky on your server. How you can install plugins on your server through the Raw Power Panel can be found here:
Step 2: After Chunky is installed and your server has been restarted you will need to set a center of your pregeneration. There are two ways you can do this:
- Center on your current location:
/chunky center <x> <z>
- Center on the world spawn

Step 3: Now that your pregeneration has been centered you need to set a radius for the pregeneration. For regular SMP style servers we recommend a radius between 10.000 and 20.000 blocks. To set your radius to 10.000, use the following command:
/chunky radius 10000
Note: You can always increase the size of your pregeneration when you need to. We recommend starting small to save on time.
Step 4: Now that your radius has been set you can start the pregeneration! To do this, run the following command:
Done! Your world will now be pregenerated to the set radius. Use the link below for more information about Chunky.
