Minecraft is Mojang Studios’ sandbox game that has nearly 140 million monthly active players as of 2021. Its players have loved the freedom that they can get in building whatever they want to create, explore different worlds and win hundreds on challenges in this game. However, like any other video games that have existed, Minecraft players also experience glitches and bugs as they play; and a good example to this is Game Crash Error: java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception.
java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception is a type of bug that you experience when you play Minecraft. There are several reasons why this pop-up as you play, and this article will explain what this error is, what causes it, and the different ways on how you can fix this.
What is java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception error in Minecraft?
Java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception error is the prompt or a pop-up notification that you will get while you play on a Multiplayer server when you have a high render distance value or when you use the /reload command.
If you have created your own server in Minecraft, or if you have played in a server in the older versions of Minecraft, there is a high chance that you have come across the java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception error. This will prevent your game from loading.
The /reload command
To reload configuration files especially those that work for plugins and the servers that the players use, server owners often use the /reload command. This trick made work really easy for plugin developers, however, as server owners try to use it, they have discovered that they get the java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception error before the entire game crashes.
High Render Distance
To understand this better, render distance is the number of chunks visible to the player in the game. You have the option to change the values for this, but the minimum render distance for any devices is 6 and the maximum render distance is 96. The fewer number of chunks you choose, the faster each frame would be rendered, and the less probability that your game will crash and get the java.lang.indexoutofboundsexception error.
