    I recently subscribed to the 10 person realm so my wife and our two children old enough to play can all play together cross-platform. After realizing we cannot see each other's houses from a distance, it feels very claustrophobic compared to standard view distances. My PC renders 80 chunks, so the difference is very jarring. I find myself putting the game down more often being frustrated with this limitation, or worse: downloading the realm to play locally when I play by myself, then uploading when my wife or one of the kids load up the Nintendo Switch to log on to the realm so we can play together.

    If it is not feasible to offer higher view distances of a standard realm server, a higher performance server for a premium subscription would be considered. (Don't be greedy here, despite "working as intended", it "feels" broken with the distance being so short.)

    It's so frustrating. On Xbox the Maximum Setting is 22 Chunks (even on One X, but that's another story) but the Reals are just 10 or 12 chunks. If I play my world local I can easily see a whole NPC village out of the window of my house. On a Realm I can't even see the other end of a village, if I stand on one side. This is just hilarious for 4€ a month.

    Its horrible.  As an alternative i have set up an own server, BUT we can't join them with our XBOX ONE!!!!   Please change the view-distance!  we even can't see own buildings completly!!   Minimum chunks should be 22!    Thanks a lot.

    My realm is only simulating in a 4 chunk radius and this is really unacceptable for $7 a month. This is the only option I have for an always available server to play with my family that has Nintendo Switches and you need to provide a better service or I will not renew the realms subscription. It takes 1 session for us to out-build the simulation radius on a fresh world.

    I will be canceling my realm until the render distance is a minimum of 40 to 50 chunks. the whole immersions is gone from it being so small.

    I play on Xbox one x and I would love better render distance and such. I wish I could choose in options to exclude low end devices from realms.

    Exploring The End with the limited render distance is almost impossible. It's like wearing a pumkin!

    It's just sad. Everytime I go back to local Play,I wanna stay there just for the View. but then I remember the other 7 Player on my 10 player realm. 

    Btw. with the 1.10 Update the performance got even worse, on XBOX-ONE X.

    I dropped my realm because of this as well. I can play on my Xbox with Max render distance no problem. Not interested in having (1) farms not working if they're not right next to me and (2) transportation systems completely unusable over relatively short distances. Not worth it for me because of this.

    if the render distance would increase then realms would be amazing in my and other worlds but now i cannot see stuff that makes my places special from one place or anywhere like it would be there such as in my world it has a lake and not seing the lights across at the other houses is just really sad :c

    I agree fully with this. Me and my friends switched from Java to Bedrock realms. We are generally happy with the switch, but the downgrade in render distance hits hard. I'd gladly pay double or triple for a greater render distance and other world options.

    Yeah, render distance is horrible... I build on a relatively large scale and it just kills the experience...

    So sad... Not being able to see everything you’ve built ruins the experience and makes spending the money for a realm feel like a waste. Hope they fix they render distance... until then, I’ll play with my friends, for free, in a local world.

    I'm ignorant as to how Realms is implemented, but idk why I can get a render distance of 80 chunks locally when my friend boots up the game and I join him but I can't change my personal render distance in a realm. Either way, for something they expect you to pay $84 a year for 10 chunks is abysmal. It's lower than the absolute minimum render distance it normally lets you select. You can't see what's right in front of your face. If the amount of people is a problem i'm sure they could dynamically scale the render distance based on the amount of people in a server at a given time, at the very least.

    I sadly still see no improvements on this. 

    I recently renewed my Realm after I played a while locally. It's absurd how low the distance is. Especially if I play on my Notebook where I can easily increase it to 60 Chunks without any restriction. 

    I'm at a point were I would double the money I pay for the realm if I could get at least doubled viewing distance. I can't even see my whole city at this point.

    I would really like to see the draw distance improve on realms, I too download the current realm and play it straight off the Xbox one x and then replace it back on the realm when my kids want to play.

    The render distance on a realm is absurdly horrible! And in a local world I can see my entire damn world! Mojang fix your sh** glad I only pay 7.99 so my girlfriend and her 16 yr old brother and I can play together without issues and whenever she wants to hop on.
