The Render View is located in the center of the editor's UI and is the main viewport you use to perform your work.
The content here will change depending on what type of mod you are working on:
- When working on a Crafted Map, this is the main area where you make changes to the game world, allowing you to pan around, select objects, edit objects, and modify imported content.
- When working on Tuning Pack, this is where the attribute editor appears.
- When working on a Generated Map or Game Mode, this is where the script information appears.
