      The bug

      If the player is under the effects of both Blindness and Night Vision at the same time, the world becomes completely black. HUD things like hand, debug info and inventory, as well as the sky, are still visible. This also occurs if you have Blindness while underwater, or Night Vision while at a negative Y level.

      How to reproduce

      1. Navigate to the Void (Y level < 0) or give yourself Blindness with /effect @p blindness
      2. Give yourself the night vision effect with /effect @p night_vision
        Notice the screen becomes completely black, effectively hiding the world.
      3. Alternatively, give yourself Blindness while underwater.

      Affected graphics cards

      Possibly all non-NVIDIA ones
