This page documents the changes from the last stable Minecraft release (currently 1.12.2, protocol 340) to the current pre-release (currently 17w45a, protocol 343). 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.

Plugin Channels

MC|StopSound

Server to client

Used to implement the /stopsound command. Stops a sound that is currently playing on the client.

Field name Field type Notes
Sound category String Should be one of the sound categories used in Named Sound Effect, but if it's invalid or empty then it is (intentionally) treated as all sound categories.
Sound name String A sound effect name. If left empty, all sounds are stopped.

Emptiness of sound category or sound name can be combined, IE a empty sound name but a set sound category will stop all sounds in the given category.

This plugin channel has been replaced by the stop sound packet.

Play

Clientbound

Declare Commands

Currently has no payload, but will serialize a Brigadier RootCommandNode instance.

Packet ID State Bound To Field Name Field Type Notes
0x10 Play Client no fields

Named Sound Effect

See also: #Sound Effect

Used to play a sound effect on the client. Custom sounds may be added by resource packs.

Packet ID State Bound To Field Name Field Type Notes
0x19 Play Client Sound Name String (256) Identifier All sound effect names as of 1.12.2 can be seen here.
Sound Category VarInt Enum The category that this sound will be played from (current categories)
Effect Position X Int Effect X multiplied by 8 (fixed-point number with only 3 bits dedicated to the fractional part)
Effect Position Y Int Effect Y multiplied by 8 (fixed-point number with only 3 bits dedicated to the fractional part)
Effect Position Z Int Effect Z multiplied by 8 (fixed-point number with only 3 bits dedicated to the fractional part)
Volume Float 1 is 100%, can be more
Pitch Float Float between 0.5 and 2.0 by Notchian clients

Particle

Displays the named particle

Packet ID State Bound To Field Name Field Type Notes
0x22 Play Client Particle ID Int See below
Long Distance Boolean If true, particle distance increases from 256 to 65536
X Float X position of the particle
Y Float Y position of the particle
Z Float Z position of the particle
Offset X Float This is added to the X position after being multiplied by random.nextGaussian()
Offset Y Float This is added to the Y position after being multiplied by random.nextGaussian()
Offset Z Float This is added to the Z position after being multiplied by random.nextGaussian()
Particle Data Float The data of each particle
Particle Count Int The number of particles to create
Data Array of VarInt Varies Length depends on particle. "iconcrack" has length of 2, "blockcrack", "blockdust", and "fallingdust" have lengths of 1, the rest have 0. Type of data varies based off of the particle. For "iconcrack", it is a Slot. For "blockcrack", "blockdust", and "fallingdust", it is a block state encoded as a VarInt that is an index within the global palette.

Handshaking

Clientbound

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.

Serverbound

Handshake

This causes the server to switch into the target state.
