Optimizing the view and simulation distances on a Minecraft server can significantly enhance server performance and player experience. This guide provides steps to adjust these settings using the Game panel.

Accessing Server Files on Game Panel

  • Log in to your Game panel and select the server you want to configure.

  • Stop your server to safely make changes to its configuration.

  • Navigate to the 'File Management' section.

Editing the server.properties File

  • In the 'File Management' area, locate and edit the server.properties file.

  • Find the lines for view-distance and simulation-distance (May not be available in all versions).

  • Adjust these values according to your server's needs and capabilities. The default view distance is typically 10 chunks.

  • After making changes, save the file.

Restarting Your Server

  • Once you have saved the changes, restart your server for the new settings to take effect.

Optimizing Server Performance

  • Keep in mind the balance between server performance and player experience. Higher values for view and simulation distances may strain server resources.

  • Monitor your server’s performance after making changes and adjust if necessary.


Adjusting view and simulation distances through the Game Panel is a straightforward process that can significantly impact your Minecraft server's performance. It's important to find the right balance that suits your server's hardware and your players' needs.
