Sometimes not loaded chunks create holes in the world. Why is it that some chunks don't load while everything around them gets loaded? Yesterday i traversed such a hole flying, it still didn't load. Is there anything that can be done to avoid such things? It destroys immersion, apart from that chunk being unusable while not loaded.

  • log out and back in, that's all you can do as far as I know. – Arperum Jun 12 '14 at 12:35
  • This is a known bug, filed as MC-129. Another thing you do to fix that for good is follow that link, register on Mojang's bug tracker and vote for the issue. The bug is known for a long time, but is not fixed yet - maybe we need more hype. – Orc JMR Jun 13 '14 at 7:56

There are three ways to fix a chunk error:

  1. Log off and log on again
  2. Press F3 + A
  3. Reset your Render distance in display options

Sources are here and here

Edit: As additional information, option 2 and 3 forcibly reload all chunks.

Three ways to help chunks to load

  1. Try resetting your world. The chunks may not cooperate with how fast/slow your world is loading.
  2. Check your render distance. Make sure your world is not too many/less chunks.
  3. Check your WiFi. Another reason your world may not be loading fully is because of WiFi. If you have 2 or less bars, (or none) your world will not load. Try resetting your WiFi if it is running slow.

Use MCEdit if chunks do not load. Make sure you try logging off and back on to make sure beforehand.
