  | A table/dictionary/palette mapping nonnegative integers to block states. The block state IDs can be constructed from {{Minecraft Wiki|Data values|this table}} by multiplying what the Minecraft Wiki calls “block IDs” by 16 and adding the metadata/damage value (or in most programming languages <code>block_id &lt;&lt; 4 <nowiki>|</nowiki> metadata</code>).
+
  | A table/dictionary/palette mapping nonnegative integers to block states. 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 [https://pokechu22.github.io/Burger/1.14.4.html burger].
 +
 
 +
Alternatively, the vanilla server now includes an option to export the current block state ID mapping, by running <code>java -cp minecraft_server.jar net.minecraft.data.Main --reports</code>.  See [[Data Generators]] for more information.

Block break animations can still be applied on air; the animation will remain visible although there is no block being brokenHowever, if this is applied to a transparent block, odd graphical effects may happen, including water losing its transparency(An effect similar to this can be seen in normal gameplay when breaking ice blocks)

==== Block Change ====
 
 
 
Fired whenever a block is changed within the render distance.
 
 
 
{{Warning2|Changing a block in a chunk that is not loaded is not a stable action. The Notchian client currently uses a ''shared'' empty chunk which is modified for all block changes in unloaded chunks; while in 1.9 this chunk never renders in older versions the changed block will appear in all copies of the empty chunk.  Servers should avoid sending block changes in unloaded chunks and clients should ignore such packets.}}

==== Server Difficulty ====
+
Units:
 +
 
 +
* None: just a normal number (formatted with 0 decimal places)
 +
* Damage: value is 10 times the normal amount
 +
* Distance: a distance in centimeters (hundredths of blocks)
 +
* Time: a time span in ticks
 +
 
 +
==== Block Break Animation ====
 +
 
 +
0–9 are the displayable destroy stages and each other number means that there is no animation on this coordinate.
 +
 
 +
Block break animations can still be applied on air; the animation will remain visible although there is no block being broken.  However, if this is applied to a transparent block, odd graphical effects may happen, including water losing its transparency.  (An effect similar to this can be seen in normal gameplay when breaking ice blocks)
  
Changes the difficulty setting in the client's option menu
+
If you need to display several break animations at the same time you have to give each of them a unique Entity ID. The entity ID does not need to correspond to an actual entity on the client. It is valid to use a randomly generated number.

==== Multi Block Change ====
+
==== Block Change ====
  
Fired whenever 2 or more blocks are changed within the same chunk on the same tick.
+
Fired whenever a block is changed within the render distance.
  
{{Warning|Changing blocks in chunks not loaded by the client is unsafe (see note on [[#Block Change|Block Change]]).}}
+
{{Warning2|Changing a block in a chunk that is not loaded is not a stable action.  The Notchian client currently uses a ''shared'' empty chunk which is modified for all block changes in unloaded chunks; while in 1.9 this chunk never renders in older versions the changed block will appear in all copies of the empty chunk.  Servers should avoid sending block changes in unloaded chunks and clients should ignore such packets.}}

For more information on this packet, see the [[Command Data]] article.
  
This packet can only be used to edit the hotbar of the player's inventory if window ID is set to 0 (slots 36 through 44).  If the window ID is set to -2, then any slot in the inventory can be used but no add item animation will be played.
+
==== Confirm Transaction (clientbound) ====
  
==== Set Cooldown ====
+
A packet from the server indicating whether a request from the client was accepted, or whether there was a conflict (due to lag).  If the packet was not accepted, the client must respond with a [[#Confirm Transaction (serverbound)|serverbound confirm transaction]] packet.
 
 
Applies a cooldown period to all items with the given type.  Used by the Notchian server with enderpearls.  This packet should be sent when the cooldown starts and also when the cooldown ends (to compensate for lag), although the client will end the cooldown automatically.

==== Plugin Message (clientbound) ====

==== Close Window (clientbound) ====
  
{{Main|Plugin channels}}
+
This packet is sent from the server to the client when a window is forcibly closed, such as when a chest is destroyed while it's open.
 
 
Mods and plugins can use this to send their data. Minecraft itself uses a number of [[plugin channel]]s. These internal channels are prefixed with <code>MC|</code>.

==== Keep Alive (clientbound) ====
 
 
 
The server will frequently send out a keep-alive, each containing a random ID. The client must respond with the same packet. If the client does not respond to them for over 30 seconds, the server kicks the client. Vice versa, if the server does not send any keep-alives for 20 seconds, the client will disconnect and yields a "Timed out" exception.

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).

Sent by the server when an item in a slot (in a window) is added/removed.

==== Effect ====
+
To set the cursor (the item currently dragged with the mouse), use -1 as Window ID and as Slot.
 +
 
 +
This packet can only be used to edit the hotbar of the player's inventory if window ID is set to 0 (slots 36 through 44).  If the window ID is set to -2, then any slot in the inventory can be used but no add item animation will be played.
  
Sent when a client is to play a sound or particle effect.
+
==== Set Cooldown ====
  
By default, the Minecraft client adjusts the volume of sound effects based on distance. The final boolean field is used to disable this, and instead the effect is played from 2 blocks away in the correct direction. Currently this is only used for effect 1023 (wither spawn) and effect 1028 (enderdragon death); it is ignored on other effects.
+
Applies a cooldown period to all items with the given type.  Used by the Notchian server with enderpearls.  This packet should be sent when the cooldown starts and also when the cooldown ends (to compensate for lag), although the client will end the cooldown automatically. Can be applied to any item, note that interactions still get sent to the server with the item but the client does not play the animation nor attempt to predict results (i.e block placing).

The Notchian server uses a system-dependent time in milliseconds to generate the keep alive ID value.

| Compound containing one long array named <code>MOTION_BLOCKING</code>, which is a heightmap for the highest solid block at each position in the chunk (as a compacted long array with 256 entries at 9 bits per entry totaling 36 longs). 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.

Play record: This is actually a special case within this packet. You can start/stop a record at a specific location. Use a valid {{Minecraft Wiki|Music Discs|Record ID}} to start a record (or overwrite a currently playing one), any other value will stop the record.
+
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.

==== Effect ====
  
==== Particle ====
+
Sent when a client is to play a sound or particle effect.
  
Displays the named particle
+
By default, the Minecraft client adjusts the volume of sound effects based on distance. The final boolean field is used to disable this, and instead the effect is played from 2 blocks away in the correct direction. Currently this is only used for effect 1023 (wither spawn) and effect 1028 (enderdragon death); it is ignored on other effects.

 +
This packet may be used to initialize an entity.
  
Sent by the server to update the user list (<tab> in the client).
+
For player entities, either this packet or any move/look packet is sent every game tick. So the meaning of this packet is basically that the entity did not move/look since the last such packet.

The Property field looks as in the response of [[Mojang API#UUID -> Profile + Skin/Cape]], except of course using the protocol format instead of JSON. That is, each player will usually have one property with Name “textures” and Value being a base64-encoded JSON string as documented at [[Mojang API#UUID -> Profile + Skin/Cape]]. An empty properties array is also acceptable, and will cause clients to display the player with one of the two default skins depending on UUID.

==== Player Abilities (clientbound) ====
  
==== Player Position And Look (clientbound) ====
+
The latter 2 floats are used to indicate the field of view and flying speed respectively, while the first byte is used to determine the value of 4 booleans.
 
 
Updates the player's position on the server. This packet will also close the “Downloading Terrain” screen when joining/respawning.
 
 
 
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.

Recipe ID:
 
These are hardcoded values in the client and server, all the recipe json files will be loaded in a specific order (alphabetical, like sounds) and internal ids will be assigned in that order. There are also inbuilt recipes like fireworks, banners, etc., these are the first recipes to have their id assigned. Due the fact that the recipes are loaded in a specific order will the ids very likely change when recipes get added. [https://twitter.com/dinnerbone/status/856505341479145472 Custom recipes are scheduled for Minecraft 1.13], so most likely will things change a bit in that version.

==== Respawn ====
+
If the entity given by entity ID cannot be found, this packet should be treated as if is entity was false.
 +
 
 +
==== Player Position And Look (clientbound) ====  
 +
 
 +
Updates the player's position on the server. This packet will also close the “Downloading Terrain” screen when joining/respawning.
 +
 
 +
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.
  
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.
+
Pitch is measured in degrees, where 0 is looking straight ahead, -90 is looking straight up, and 90 is looking straight down.

The Notchian client determines how solid to display the warning by comparing to whichever is higher, the warning distance or whichever is lower, the distance from the current diameter to the target diameter or the place the border will be after warningTime seconds. In pseudocode:
+
If no or an invalid identifier is sent, the client will switch to the first tab in the GUI.

<syntaxhighlight lang="java">
+
==== World Border ====  
distance = max(min(resizeSpeed * 1000 * warningTime, abs(targetDiameter - currentDiameter)), warningDistance);

    warning = 1.0 - playerDistance / distance;
 
} else {
 
    warning = 0.0;
 
}
 
</syntaxhighlight>
 
 
 
==== Camera ====
 
 
 
Sets the entity that the player renders from. This is normally used when the player left-clicks an entity while in spectator mode.
 
 
 
The player's camera will move with the entity and look where it is looking. The entity is often another player, but can be any type of entity.  The player is unable to move this entity (move packets will act as if they are coming from the other entity).
 
 
 
If the given entity is not loaded by the player, this packet is ignored.  To return control to the player, send this packet with their entity ID.
 
 
 
The Notchian server resets this (sends it back to the default entity) whenever the spectated entity is killed or the player sneaks, but only if they were spectating an entity. It also sends this packet whenever the player switches out of spectator mode (even if they weren't spectating an entity).

{{Need Info|Why is this even needed?  Is there a better name for it?  My guess is that it's something to do with logical behavior with latency, but it still seems weird.}}
  
Sent by the server to update/set the health of the player it is sent to.
+
Updates the client's location.  This is used to determine what chunks should remain loaded and if a chunk load should be ignored; chunks outside of the view distance may be unloaded.
  
Food {{Minecraft Wiki|Food#Hunger vs. Saturation|saturation}} acts as a food “overcharge”. Food values will not decrease while the saturation is over zero. Players logging in automatically get a saturation of 5.0. Eating food increases the saturation as well as the food bar.
+
Sent whenever the player moves across a chunk border horizontally, and also (according to testing) for any integer change in the vertical axis, even if it doesn't go across a chunk section border.

==== Time Update ====
+
==== Update Health ====
  
Time is based on ticks, where 20 ticks happen every second. There are 24000 ticks in a day, making Minecraft days exactly 20 minutes long.
+
Sent by the server to update/set the health of the player it is sent to.
  
The time of day is based on the timestamp modulo 24000. 0 is sunrise, 6000 is noon, 12000 is sunset, and 18000 is midnight.
+
Food {{Minecraft Wiki|Food#Hunger vs. Saturation|saturation}} acts as a food “overcharge”. Food values will not decrease while the saturation is over zero. Players logging in automatically get a saturation of 5.0. Eating food increases the saturation as well as the food bar.
 
 
The default SMP server increments the time by <code>20</code> every second.

==== Collect Item ====
 
 
 
Sent by the server when someone picks up an item lying on the ground — its sole purpose appears to be the animation of the item flying towards you. It doesn't destroy the entity in the client memory, and it doesn't add it to your inventory. The server only checks for items to be picked up after each [[#Player Position|Player Position]] (and [[#Player Position And Look|Player Position And Look]]) packet sent by the client.
