Affects Version/s: 1.16.20, 1.16.40
Fix Version/s: 1.16.210
When view-distance is set to 4 or less in server.properties, joining clients get stuck on "Locating Server".
- Unzip clean copy of the latest affected BDS version
- Leave all settings as default but change view-distance to 4
- Start server
- Join from any client
As both the how to document and the server.properties file claim that "any positive integer" is a valid value, BDS should function when view-distance is set to low +ve value (1 through 4)
Clients are unable to join when view distance is set to between 1 and 4.
- The server console shows the player as connecting, so it appears a successful connection is in fact made.
