Why is minecraft not rendering more than about 12 chunks? Singleplayer not on a server.

I have tried allowing minecraft to use more ram but no effect.

Maybe because i dont have a graphics card? Minecraft is only using about 30-40% of graphics in task manager.

  • Even if it's set higher, it might just take a while. Try waiting for multiple minutes without moving much. Commented Sep 17, 2019 at 23:02

Check your render distance in your Video Settings sub-menu settings options. It'll show as a slider on the top-right corner of the settings list. Increase it by dragging the bar to the right to increase the render distance
