im starting to think that the infinite minecraft world thing may go a little far on the truth.........
Limitation is in the tp command. Go ahead and issue the command normally to get the error message.
You can use /tp <player> 12345678 200 12345678, and then use relative teleportation (/tp <player> ~12345678 ~0 ~12345678) to keep going. I think it tops out after the first repeat, however. Error message seems a bit bugged since it seems to contain the format string.
Technically, it's not infinite.
Practically, it is. Unless you are making modifications to the game or using various map editors or map tools, in which case you should be aware that the practical infinity of the world is not technically accurate.
is mojang cheeping me? Because i want infinite worlds where i can do and go wherever i want whenever i want and this is just cheep. Anyone else have simalar problems?
No. I mostly play Vanilla Survival though, so I'll never encounter those sorts of issues since I cannot use commands as I have it now.
What you are neglecting however is that if you did teleport to X:123456789 Z:987654321, what did you expect to find? And you surely are aware just how much area that would skip over, for no good reason? If you want to be able to teleport to arbitrary locations, well, that's fine. But don't make excuses for using those arbitrary numbers that aren't rooted in reality. Being able to put in arbitrarily high numbers has nothing to do with infinite worlds because the "infinite worlds" thing is more a practical limitation.
hey i was in creative and was trying to have fun with exploring lands and such but idk...
I'm not really sure how having arbitrarily large values on one or both axes makes things fun.
The world is infinite, but when you get to X:32000 Z:32000 (I think) the world generates a bit differently in caves and no trees. Also you go through all blocks.
The limitation is purely from the /tp command. However, when I multiplied my position by 10 in level.dat I got disconnected by the server "Illegal position". Triggers at 32,000,000 meters. That's around the area that floating point errors become pronounced enough to notice, too.
