  | 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 Animation ====

Categories (these are namespaced, but with <code>:</code> replaced with <code>.</code>):
  
0–9 are the displayable destroy stages and each other number means that there is no animation on this coordinate.

! Name
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)
+
! ID
 
+
! Registry
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.

==== 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.

This packet is used for a number of actions and animations performed by blocks, usually non-persistent.
  
Identifying the difference between Chat/System Message is important as it helps respect the user's chat visibility options.  See [[Chat#Processing chat|processing chat]] for more info about these positions.
+
See [[Block Actions]] for a list of values.
  
{{warning2|Game info accepts json formatting but does not display it, although the deprecated §-based formatting worksThis is not an issue when using the [[#Title|Title]] packet, so prefer that packet for displaying information in that slot.  See [https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-119145 MC-119145] for more information.}}

==== 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.}}

To set the cursor (the item currently dragged with the mouse), use -1 as Window ID and as Slot.
+
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. 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).

==== 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>.

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

==== 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).

==== Effect ====
 
 
 
Sent when a client is to play a sound or particle effect.
 
 
 
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.

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.
 +
 +
==== Set Cooldown ====
 +
 +
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).

==== Keep Alive (clientbound) ====
| mobSpell
+
 
| 15
+
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.
  |-
+
 
  | mobSpellAmbient
+
The Notchian server uses a system-dependent time in milliseconds to generate the keep alive ID value.

==== Chunk Data ====

 +
{{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).

 +
 
 +
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 ====
 +
 
 +
Sent when a client is to play a sound or particle effect.
 +
 
 +
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.

==== Entity ====

Smoke directions:
 
 
This packet may be used to initialize an entity.
 
 
 
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.

==== Entity Relative Move ====
+
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.  See [[Data Generators]] for information on item IDs.
  
This packet is sent by the server when an entity moves less then 8 blocks; if an entity moves more than 8 blocks [[#Entity Teleport|Entity Teleport]] should be sent instead.
+
==== Particle ====
  
This packet allows at most 8 blocks movement in any direction, because short range is from -32768 to 32767. And <code>32768 / (128 * 32)</code> = 8.
+
Displays the named particle

==== Entity Look And Relative Move ====
+
==== Update Light ====
  
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 8 blocks movement in any direction. (<code>-32768 / (32 * 128) == -8</code>)
+
Updates light levels for a chunk.

Individual block or sky light arrays are is given for each block with increasing x coordinates, within rows of increasing z coordinates, within layers of increasing y coordinates. Even-indexed items (those with an even x coordinate, starting at 0) are packed into the low bits, odd-indexed into the high bits.

 +
==== Join Game ====
  
This packet is sent by the server when an entity rotates.

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.

Ping values correspond with icons in the following way:
+
==== Entity Relative Move ====
* A ping that negative (i.e. not known to the server yet) will result in the no connection icon.
 
* A ping under 150 milliseconds will result in 5 bars
 
* A ping under 300 milliseconds will result in 4 bars
 
* A ping under 600 milliseconds will result in 3 bars
 
* A ping under 1000 milliseconds (1 second) will result in 2 bars
 
* A ping greater than or equal to 1 second will result in 1 bar.
 
  
==== Player Position And Look (clientbound) ====
+
This packet is sent by the server when an entity moves less then 8 blocks; if an entity moves more than 8 blocks [[#Entity Teleport|Entity Teleport]] should be sent instead.
  
Updates the player's position on the server. This packet will also close the “Downloading Terrain” screen when joining/respawning.
+
This packet allows at most 8 blocks movement in any direction, because short range is from -32768 to 32767. And <code>32768 / (128 * 32)</code> = 8.
 
 
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.

About the Flags field:
+
==== Entity Look And Relative Move ====
  
<Dinnerbone> It's a bitfield, X/Y/Z/Y_ROT/X_ROT. If X is set, the x value is relative and not absolute.
+
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 8 blocks movement in any direction. (<code>-32768 / (32 * 128) == -8</code>)

==== Entity Look ====
  
This packet tells that a player goes to bed.
+
This packet is sent by the server when an entity rotates.
 
 
The client with the matching Entity ID will go into bed mode.
 
 
 
This Packet is sent to all nearby players including the one sent to bed.
 
 
 
Any packets sent with a location not currently occupied by a bed will be ignored by clients.

This packet may be used to initialize an entity.

 +
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.

Recipe ID:
+
==== Vehicle Move (clientbound) ====
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.
 
  
==== Destroy Entities ====
+
Note that all fields use absolute positioning and do not allow for relative positioning.

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.
+
This is sent to the client when it should open an inventory, such as a chest, workbench, or furnace. This message is not sent anywhere for clients opening their own inventory.  For horses, use [[#Open Horse Window|Open Horse Window]].

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:
+
==== Player Info ====
  
<syntaxhighlight lang="java">
+
Sent by the server to update the user list (<tab> in the client).
distance = max(min(resizeSpeed * 1000 * warningTime, abs(targetDiameter - currentDiameter)), warningDistance);
 
if (playerDistance < distance) {
 
    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).

Velocity is believed to be in units of 1/8000 of a block per server tick (50ms); for example, -1343 would move (-1343 / 8000) = −0.167875 blocks per tick (or −3,3575 blocks per second).

==== Entity Equipment ====
+
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.
 +
 
 +
Ping values correspond with icons in the following way:
 +
* A ping that negative (i.e. not known to the server yet) will result in the no connection icon.
 +
* A ping under 150 milliseconds will result in 5 bars
 +
* A ping under 300 milliseconds will result in 4 bars
 +
* A ping under 600 milliseconds will result in 3 bars
 +
* A ping under 1000 milliseconds (1 second) will result in 2 bars
 +
* A ping greater than or equal to 1 second will result in 1 bar.
 +
 
 +
==== Face Player ====
 +
 
 +
Used to rotate the client player to face the given location or entity (for <code>/teleport [<targets>] <x> <y> <z> facing</code>).

==== Set Experience ====
+
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) ====  
  
Sent by the server when the client should change experience levels.
+
Updates the player's position on the server. This packet will also close the “Downloading Terrain” screen when joining/respawning.
  
{| class="wikitable"
+
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?)”.

==== Update Health ====
+
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”.
  
Sent by the server to update/set the health of the player it is sent to.
+
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.
  
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.
+
Pitch is measured in degrees, where 0 is looking straight ahead, -90 is looking straight up, and 90 is looking straight down.

==== Scoreboard Objective ====
+
About the Flags field:
  
This is sent to the client when it should create a new {{Minecraft Wiki|scoreboard}} objective or remove one.
+
<Dinnerbone> It's a bitfield, X/Y/Z/Y_ROT/X_ROT. If X is set, the x value is relative and not absolute.

==== Entity Head Look ====

Changes the direction an entity's head is facing.

While sending the Entity Look packet changes the vertical rotation of the head, sending this packet appears to be necessary to rotate the head horizontally.

==== Time Update ====
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
The time of day is based on the timestamp modulo 24000. 0 is sunrise, 6000 is noon, 12000 is sunset, and 18000 is midnight.
 
 
 
The default SMP server increments the time by <code>20</code> every second.

“Hide” makes the title disappear, but if you run times again the same title will appear. “Reset” erases the text.
+
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:
  
The title is visible on screen for Fade In + Stay + Fade Out ticks.
+
<syntaxhighlight lang="java">
 +
distance = max(min(resizeSpeed * 1000 * warningTime, abs(targetDiameter - currentDiameter)), warningDistance);
 +
if (playerDistance < distance) {
 +
    warning = 1.0 - playerDistance / distance;
 +
} else {
 +
    warning = 0.0;
 +
}
 +
</syntaxhighlight>
  
==== Sound Effect ====
+
==== Camera ====
  
This packet is used to play a number of hardcoded sound events. For custom sounds, use [[#Named Sound Effect|Named Sound Effect]].
+
Sets the entity that the player renders from. This is normally used when the player left-clicks an entity while in spectator mode.
  
{{Warning|Numeric sound effect IDs are liable to change between versions}}
+
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.}}
 +
 
 +
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.
  
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. The collector entity can be any entity, it does not have to be a player.
+
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.
