Float-Precision issues on extreme distances from 0,0

See original GitHub issue

BlueMap Version: v1.3.1-forge

I am using:

  • mods (on the rendered world)
  • resourcepacks (in bluemaps config/resourcepack folder)


  • Traveling to extreme distances causes map jerkiness and block disconnections. (based on chunks maybe?)

Kind of related (and copied from Discord):

Ok so there’s two different “symptoms” that start happening at different distances:

  • The tiles start “shaking” slightly when rotating or tilting the camera This starts very early at around 100k but only very slightly. At 200k-300k it is easily noticeable especially when zoomed in. At really high coordinates, tiles start flickering randomly.

  • The camera starts “jumping” instead of moving smoothly Starts at around 500k and gets really bad at around 1m-2m.

(Tested with Firefox on Bluemap Spigot 1.3.1 with a mod that allows for an infinite repeating hires map)

Just wanted to show that it still has a similar issue with 1.4.2 at extreme distance. It no longer keeping the blocks uniform. chrome_2021-04-19_14-40-20
