==== Spawn Player ====
 
 
 
This packet is sent by the server when a player comes into visible range, ''not'' when a player joins.
 
 
 
This packet must be sent after the [[#Player Info|Player Info]] packet that adds the player data for the client to use when spawning a player. If the Player Info for the player spawned by this packet is not present when this packet arrives, Notchian clients will not spawn the player entity. The Player Info packet includes skin/cape data.
 
 
 
Servers can, however, safely spawn player entities for players not in visible range. The client appears to handle it correctly.

When in {{Minecraft Wiki|Server.properties#online-mode|online mode}}, the UUIDs must be valid and have valid skin blobs.
 
 
 
In offline mode, [[Wikipedia:Universally unique identifier#Versions 3 and 5 (namespace name-based)|UUID v3]] is used with the String <code>OfflinePlayer:&lt;player name&gt;</code>, encoded in UTF-8 (and case-sensitive).
 
 
 
For NPCs UUID v2 should be used. Note:
 
 
 
<+Grum> i will never confirm this as a feature you know that :)
 
 
 
In an example UUID, <code>xxxxxxxx-xxxx-Yxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx</code>, the UUID version is specified by <code>Y</code>. So, for UUID v3, <code>Y</code> will always be <code>3</code>, and for UUID v2, <code>Y</code> will always be <code>2</code>.

==== 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).

The Notchian server also adds a <code>WORLD_SURFACE</code> long array, the purpose of which is unknown, but it's not required for the chunk to be accepted.

Note that the Notchian client requires an [[#Update View Position|Update View Position]] packet when it crosses a chunk border, otherwise it'll only display render distance + 2 chunks around the chunk it spawned in.

==== Respawn ====
 
 
 
To change the player's dimension (overworld/nether/end), send them a respawn packet with the appropriate dimension, followed by prechunks/chunks for the new dimension, and finally a position and look packet. You do not need to unload chunks, the client will do it automatically.

{{Warning2|Avoid changing player's dimension to same dimension they were already in unless they are dead. If you change the dimension to one they are already in, weird bugs can occur, such as the player being unable to attack other players in new world (until they die and respawn).
 
 
 
If you must respawn a player in the same dimension without killing them, send two respawn packets, one to a different world and then another to the world you want. You do not need to complete the first respawn; it only matters that you send two packets.}}

There are no clientbound packets in the Handshaking state, since the protocol immediately switches to a different state after the client sends the first packet.

==== Handshake ====
 
 
This causes the server to switch into the target state.
