does Minecraft use Random or SecureRandom for random number generation, I'm curious now

Kaito / Katie Sinclaire @KS

fun fact: java.util.Random is literally just rand48

this ends me being nerdsniped by r/speedrun again

@KS yeah

it's.... not good

but minecraft's weaknesses come from its pathological reseed behavior, not the algorithm

@unascribed wait what

why would you constantly reseed, that defeats most of the point ...

@KS it uses the same random instance for generation tasks as well as general purpose randomness

the generator gets reseeded when chunks generate and even sometimes when they load
