Can you help explain slime chunks to me in simple peasant English? I read the wiki and im not good with numbers. thanks!
As they said, the world is divided into 16 x 16 block squares beginning at x=0, z=0 and extending to the end of the world. As players approach chunks they become loaded, as they get further away those chunks unload. There is an algorithm that decides when the game is created that determines some of the chunks (about 1 in 10) will be a slime chunk. Those are the only chunks that can spawn slimes between y=0-y=40.
You can actually see the outline of chunks on the screen by pressing F3-G. Pressing F3-G again will change the view back.
