I am playing on a public server with a giant map.

After travelling a huge distance in the End and passing thousands of islands, suddenly there are no more islands. I guess I am at the edge of the outer-islands-donut.

What is the algorithm to determine at which coordinates the outer islands stop generating?

According to https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/The_End#Outer_islands

These outer islands generate infinitely‌

If so, why am I travelling through nothing but void space?

Update: I haven't seen any island in the last 20 000 blocks and im still going. I doubt any islands have been removed by worldedit or even by hand. I assume they do not generate infinitely. I don't know which version of MC has been used to generate the map I'm on.

  • How are you travelling? if flying, maybe you are above the islands and havent seen them below you. could you give us the coordinates where the islands stopped generating for you along with the seed the server is on if you know it, so we can reproduce it? – AMJ Mar 24 at 8:06
  • Even if you don't know the original version of the server, you know that the chunks you're loading now are from the version the server is on now, since they're being generated as you pass through them (unless you're following the exact course that someone else did on a previous version, which seems slightly improbable ^_^) – AMJ Mar 24 at 8:16
  • @AMJ The islands stopped at about 300 000 blocks from center and the map is said to be as big as it gets. I'm flying at constant height so im not too high. – Daniel W. Mar 24 at 13:44
  • Looking at the render you linked, there is a 1,000 block gap between the main end island and the small end islands. If the end islands stop generating after 300,000 blocks, the render cant have possibly shown that. It's most likely that the render was just not 'squared off' to fill the image. – AMJ Mar 24 at 21:52
  • try to get the seed and check on creative on single player – Joe Cabezas Mar 25 at 19:10
