If Minecraft world is infinite, how does the sun spin around it?

  • Just like real life, it's the earth that spins, not the sun. If an infinite plane is spinning, it's face will make the sun look like it is rotating, regardless of how infinite the world may be. The facing of the plane is what is relative in both the real world and minecraft context.

    • But wouldn't that mean you would only get to see the sun once in your whole life?

    • That depends on how fast the world rotates to make one revolution. Even an infinite body is capable of a 360 degree revolution around a central point. The location of the central point may be unknown without more information of the infinite plane of minecraft, but the speed of revolution will help ensure that you do indeed see the sun more than once in your life. The time it takes for one revolution is a 'day', both in the real world and, in theory, minecraft.

      A lot of math and theory in questions like these!

  • Actually the Minecraft world isn’t infinite... if you travel far enough the terrain generator will break down and eventually the world will become more and more broken until there’s nothing left.

  • Think of it like a table shape treadmill. You only see so far then past that sky then space. You walk in the center and the ground moves on the table. Then the sun would rotates around the table.
