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.
