      Description

      This bug relates to the Options > Graphics > Render Distance setting. Normally, this option has 4 notches, and moving the slider to the right increases the render distance. For reasons unknown to me, I've sometimes seen certain phones have 3 notches instead of 4.

      Steps to reproduce this bug:

      1) Set your Render Distance option to 1/4 (the lowest setting).

      2) Create a new world (Infinite/Survival) using seed 544847320.

      3) Turn 90 degrees to your left and walk into the nearby village.

      Result: The village should be completely empty. Zero villagers.

      4) Set your Render Distance option to 2/4 or greater.

      5) Re-create the same world again. (Infinite/Survival with Seed: 544847320)

      6) Turn 90 degrees to your left and walk into the nearby village.

      Result: The village is now populated. The amount/location of villagers may even vary depending on which Render Distance was selected.

      Expected behavior:
      Tweaking graphical settings should not have any effect on the content of your game. In this case, a graphics option (Render Distance) has a permanent effect on what content appears in the game.
