Minecraft Modern

Banner beta.png

Minecraft Modern is the latest (and only updated) version of Minecraft which requires a paid account to download, update and play. Most of the new development projects focus on either creating entirely new programs from scratch that interoperate with Minecraft (such as a bot or server) or modding projects that wrap the client or server and provide bug fixes, new features and enhancements to existing features.

Documentation

There are ongoing efforts to keep reverse engineered documentation updated, but it isn't as easy as it sounds. The protocol generally changes slightly with each release, and both the Client and Server classes get rearranged on each release. Below are links to the current documentation segments, which may or may not be completely up to date.

Tools & Mods

  • Clients - third-party Minecraft clients.
  • Servers - third-party Minecraft servers.
  • Libraries - libraries to interface with Minecraft data files or network protocols.
  • Utilities - tools that interface with a client, server, or data files, such as proxies, bots, or inventory editors.
  • Wrappers - mods that override features in the client or server
  • Burger - a tool that generates information for arbitrary Minecraft versions
  • Burger Vitrine - shows differences in data and protocol between arbitrary versions (prior to 1.7).
  • PAaaS - shows differences in protocol and sounds for newer versions (1.8 and above)

Tutorials & Guides

Minecraft Classic

Banner classic.png

Minecraft Classic is the original version of Minecraft, available for free to the public. It's still available off of the main website today and is still played by many people, with an active development community. As it's been around since 2010, and because it's so simplistic, there are many, many programs made to work with Classic - there are over 18+ servers alone, written in everything from C++ to PureBasic to Perl. It's highly recommend if you're planning to do a development project at this point to instead look into the Minecraft Modern specifications.

Documentation

As there is no longer any work being done on classic, the documentation for it is stable. If you create something that works with it, it probably always will.

Source Code Snippets

Source code snippets provide insight into how specific features work or can be accomplished, and by themselves are generally free to use in your own program.

  • Deserializing the level.dat file format (C, C#)
  • More...

Tools and Mods

Useful information & links

  • Clients - third-party Classic clients.
  • Servers - third-party Classic servers.
  • Libraries - libraries to interface with Minecraft data files or network protocols.
  • Utilities - tools that interface with a client, server, or data files, such as proxies or bots.
  • Wrappers - mods that override features in the client or server.
