{{Need Info|How do biomes work now?  The biome change happened at the same time as the seed change, but it's not clear how/if biomes could be computed given that it's not the actual seed...  ([https://www.reddit.com/r/Mojira/comments/e5at6i/a_discussion_for_the_changes_to_how_biomes_are/ /r/mojira discussion] which notes that it seems to be some kind of interpolation, and 3D biomes are only used in the nether)}}
 
 
 
The server only sends skylight information for chunk pillars in the {{Minecraft Wiki|Overworld}}, it's up to the client to know in which dimension 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).

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.
 
 
 
The compacted array format has been adjusted so that individual entries no longer span across multiple longs, affecting the main data array and heightmaps.

This page documents the changes from the last stable Minecraft release (currently 1.18, protocol 757) to the current pre-release (currently 1.18.1-rc2, protocol Snapshot 63). 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.
