Chunky displays an overhead view of your world within the center panel under the Map tab, highlighted in red in the above image, and should be the default view when you launch Chunky. While this view can be used for mapping purposes it’s primary use is for making chunk selections for renders much easier. There are two available modes for the Map; At (map) Scale 13 or greater you will be shown individual blocks and for a Scale of 12 or under you will be displayed a biome view.


  • Left click and drag to move the viewport (also see Map View Tab)
  • Left click to select/deselect a Chunk (at Scale 16 or higher) or a Region (at Scale 15 or lower)
  • Shift + Left click and drag to create a draggable chunk selection. Note - Shift does not need to be held continuously only Left click does; On release selection of Chunks is made.
  • Mouse wheel to change Map Scale (also see Map View Tab)
  • Right click to open a menu with some Selection and Render related options

Prior to left clicking an outline of the highlighted Chunk will be shown. After left clicking the outline will be filled in and Selected.
Prior to left clicking an outline of the highlighted Region will be shown. After left clicking the Region outline will be filled in and Selected.
