Figure The Chunks tab


  • Clear selection: Clears the map view chunk selection.

  • Export chunks to ZIP: Opens a 'Save As' dialog box to export the selected chunks as region files containing the chunks to a ZIP archive.

  • Export view to PNG: Opens a 'Save As' dialog box to export the current map view as a PNG file.

  • Delete selected chunks: Displays a confirmation prompt for the user to delete the selected chunks from the currently-loaded world. (Chunks can be re-generated by Minecraft, but all user-created data in the chunks will be lost. It is a good idea to keep a backup of your world before performing this action.)

The Chunky GUI was improved and reorganized in the Chunky 2.5.0 snapshots.

The Chunks tab was removed from the right control panel, and its controls were relocated to other places.
