==== Entity Look And Relative Move ====
+
=== Clientbound ===
  
This packet is sent by the server when an entity rotates and moves. Since a short range is limited from -32768 to 32767, and movement is offset of fixed-point numbers, this packet allows at most 1024 blocks movement in any direction. (-32768/32 == -1024)

==== Player Position And Look ====
 
 
 
Updates the player's position on the server.
 
 
 
If the distance between the last known position of the player on the server and the new position set by this packet is greater than 100 meters, the client will be kicked for “You moved too quickly :( (Hacking?)”.
 
 
 
Also if the fixed-point number of X or Z is set greater than <code>3.2E7D</code> the client will be kicked for “Illegal position”.
 
 
 
Yaw is measured in degrees, and does not follow classical trigonometry rules. The unit circle of yaw on the XZ-plane starts at (0, 1) and turns counterclockwise, with 90 at (-1, 0), 180 at (0, -1) and 270 at (1, 0). Additionally, yaw is not clamped to between 0 and 360 degrees; any number is valid, including negative numbers and numbers greater than 360.
 
 
 
Pitch is measured in degrees, where 0 is looking straight ahead, -90 is looking straight up, and 90 is looking straight down.
 
 
 
The yaw in degrees of a player standing at point (x0, z0) and looking towards point (x, z) can be calculated with:
 
 
 
l = x-x0
 
w = z-z0
 
c = sqrt( l*l + w*w )
 
alpha1 = -arcsin(l/c)/PI*180
 
alpha2 =  arccos(w/c)/PI*180
 
if alpha2 > 90 then
 
    yaw = 180 - alpha1
 
else
 
    yaw = alpha1
 
 
 
You can get a unit vector from a given yaw/pitch via:
 
 
 
x = -cos(pitch) * sin(yaw)
 
y = -sin(pitch)
 
z =  cos(pitch) * cos(yaw)

==== Use Entity ====
 
 
 
This packet is sent from the client to the server when the client attacks or right-clicks another entity (a player, minecart, etc).
 
 
 
A Notchian server only accepts this packet if the entity being attacked/used is visible without obstruction and within a 4-unit radius of the player's position.
 
 
 
Note that middle-click in creative mode is interpreted by the client and sent as a [[#Creative Inventory Action|Creative Inventory Action]] packet instead.

|-
 
| Face
 
| {{Change|Byte|VarInt}} Enum

|- style="background-color: #f4cccc; text-decoration: line-through;"
 
| Held Item
 
| [[Slot Data|Slot]]
 
|
 
|- style="background-color: #d9ead3;"
 
| Hand
 
| VarInt Enum
 
| The hand from which the block is placed; 0: main hand, 1: off hand
 
|-
 
| Cursor Position X
 
| Unsigned Byte
 
| The position of the crosshair on the block, from 0 to 15 increasing from west to east
 
|-
 
| Cursor Position Y
 
| Unsigned Byte
 
| The position of the crosshair on the block, from 0 to 15 increasing from bottom to top
 
|-
 
| Cursor Position Z
 
| Unsigned Byte
 
| The position of the crosshair on the block, from 0 to 15 increasing from north to south
 
|}
 
 
 
In normal operation (i.e. placing a block), this packet is sent once, with the values set normally.
 
 
 
The Cursor Position X/Y/Z fields (also known as in-block coordinates) are calculated using raytracing. The unit corresponds to one pixel in the default resource pack. For example, let's say a slab is being placed against the south face of a full block. The Cursor Position X will be higher if the player was pointing near the right (east) edge of the face, lower if pointing near the left. The Cursor Position Y will be used to determine whether it will appear as a bottom slab (values 0–7) or as a top slab (values 8–15). The Cursor Position Z should be 15 since the player was looking at the southernmost part of the block.
 
 
 
This packet has a special case where X, Y, Z, and Direction are all -1. (Note that Y is unsigned so set to 255.) This special packet indicates that the currently held item for the player should have its state updated such as eating food, pulling back bows, using buckets, etc.
 
 
 
Special note on using buckets: When using buckets, the Notchian client might send two packets: first a normal and then a special case. The first normal packet is sent when you're looking at a block (e.g. the water you want to scoop up). This normal packet does not appear to do anything with a Notchian server. The second, special case packet appears to perform the action — based on current position/orientation and with a distance check — it appears that buckets can only be used within a radius of 6 units.
 
 
 
==== {{Change||Use Item}} ====
 
 
 
Sent when pressing the Use Item key (default: right click) with an item in hand.

This page documents the changes from the last stable Minecraft release (currently 1.18.2, protocol 758) to the current pre-release (currently 22w16b, protocol Snapshot 81). 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.
