===== Global palette =====
 
A table/dictionary/palette mapping nonnegative integers to block states. {{change|The block state IDs can be constructed from this table by multiplying what the Minecraft Wiki calls “block IDs” by 16 and adding the metadata/damage value (or in most programming languages block_id << 4 {{!}} metadata).|Block state IDs are created in a linear fashion based off of order of assignment.  One block state ID allocated for each unique block state for a block; if a block has multiple properties then the number of allocated states is the product of the number of values for each property.  A current list of properties and state ID ranges is found on [http://pokechu22.github.io/Burger/17w48a.html burger].}}

==== Chunk Data ====
 
{{Main|Chunk Format}}
 
{{See also|#Unload Chunk}}
 
 
 
The server only sends skylight information for chunk pillars in the {{Minecraft Wiki|Overworld}}, it's up to the client to know in which dimenison the player is currently located. You can also infer this information from the primary bitmask and the amount of uncompressed bytes sent.  This packet also sends all block entities in the chunk (though sending them is not required; it is still legal to send them with [[#Update Block Entity|Update Block Entity]] later).
 
 
 
{{Change||Indexes into the global palette are still used, but since the global palette has changed, behavior is different.}}

This page documents the changes from the last stable Minecraft release (currently 1.17.1, protocol 756) to the current pre-release (currently 1.18 experimental snapshot 2, protocol Snapshot 42). Note that this page contains bleeding-edge information that may not be completely or correctly documented.

One who wishes to commandeer the merging of this into Protocol when an update is made must be sure to respect any changes that may have occurred to the respective packets there.
