DH on my server

Hi. I searched the FAQs but I could't find the answer to my question. I have a small MC Server where I play with my kids. I have installed Chunky on the server and generated a bunch of chunks, but when I join the server with DH, I don't see the chunks I generated unless I manually go there. This doesn't happen on local worlds, only on the server one. This is quite frustrating. Is there any way to solve this issue? Thank you.

I was gonna ask exaclty that. Thank you! I hope DH will implement a proper Server side but my folders don't quite match up my server folder structure is the following: JavaServer_1.20.4_Paper\world\data but my local is .minecraft\Distant_Horizons_server_data\BMAX+Minecraft+Server\overworld do I need to copy DistantHorizons.sqlite in my JavaServer_1.20.4_Paper\world\data ?

Is that your server’s data? DH creates a file locally for multiplayer servers that you have to drag the file to

my DistantHorizons.sqlite is inside Distant_Horizons_server_data yes (local client) on my server, my Data folder is JavaServer_1.20.4_Paper\world\data so I copy that over, I suppose

You don’t do anything with the server’s data You just drag it to the folder on your own pc for the server and it’ll work for you But your kids will have to also put that data in the folder on their computers

wait, I'm confused DistantHorizons.sqlite is already on my local PC, it's not on the server

That’s because you’ve already flown around a bit so your pc generated some LOD chunks Oh my bad I totally misunderstood something Yea that folder should already have an SQLite file in it right

it does

In the folder for the server* You need to generate the LODs in singleplayer and then replace the file there with the SQLite file from the singeplayer world

you said "replace" but on my server there is no sqlite file to replace the server doesn't have DH, I don't even think there is a Spigot version of it

Sorry by in the folder for the server I meant in the “distant_horizons_server_data” folder on your pc there should be a folder with the name of your server

correct

It might be “world” for you because that’s what you said earlier

what I don't understand is where do I copy this file?

What you need to do is create a singeplayer world with the same seed and generate the LODs there And there will be an SQLite file in the save data for that singleplayer world Replace this with the data from the singleplayer world
