I'm new to Minecraft, and I'm looking to see how far away from my crops I can get before it starts causing problems. I know that wheat has to be within the chunk update radius of at least one player to keep growing, which lead me to this question: Within how many blocks do I have to be for wheat to grow?
So I understand now what the system is for determining the chunk update radius in multiplayer, but what about single player? All I've seen is the following sentence from the wiki:
The exact number of generated chunks varies in single player mode, depending on view distance and movement.
Alright, but there has to be a system for determining what it is at any given moment. What is it? If it's too long of a story or something, then what's a good approximation? Thanks!
