The protocol for Pocket Minecraft is substantially different, and is documented at [[Pocket Minecraft Protocol]].
+
The changes between versions may be viewed at [[Protocol History]].
  
Additionally, the minecraft server supports two other protocols since beta 1.9pre4, [[Rcon]] (for remote administration) and [[Query]] (to query server properties). With the default settings, they listen on TCP 25575 and UDP 25565 respectively.
+
== Definitions ==
  
This is a fairly lengthy page, and to make it more readable certain terminology must be understood. Terms used on this page and their definition are provided below.
+
The Minecraft server accepts connections from TCP clients and communicates with them using ''packets''. A packet is a sequence of bytes sent over the TCP connection. The meaning of a packet depends both on its packet ID and the current state of the connection. The initial state of each connection is [[#Handshaking|Handshaking]], and state is switched using the packets [[#Handshake|Handshake]] and [[#Login Success|Login Success]].

| Player
 +
| When used in the singular, Player always refers to the client connected to the server.
 +
|-
 +
| Entity
 +
| Entity refers to any item, player, mob, minecart or boat etc. See {{Minecraft Wiki|Entity|the Minecraft Wiki article}} for a full list.
 +
|-
 +
| EID
 +
| An EID — or Entity ID — is a 4-byte sequence used to identify a specific entity. An entity's EID is unique on the entire server.

 +
| XYZ
 +
| In this document, the axis names are the same as those shown in the debug screen (F3). Y points upwards, X points east, and Z points south.
 +
|-
 +
| Meter
 +
| The meter is Minecraft's base unit of length, equal to the length of a vertex of a solid block. The term “block” may be used to mean “meter” or “cubic meter”.
 +
|-
 +
| Global palette
 +
| 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/1.16.5.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.

== Packet format ==
 +
 
 +
Packets cannot be larger than 2097151 bytes (the maximum that can be sent in a 3-byte VarInt).  For compressed packets, this applies to both the compressed length and uncompressed lengths.
 +
 
 +
=== Without compression ===

 +
 
 +
=== With compression ===
 +
 
 +
Once a [[#Set Compression|Set Compression]] packet (with a non-negative threshold) is sent, [[wikipedia:Zlib|zlib]] compression is enabled for all following packets. The format of a packet changes slightly to include the size of the uncompressed packet.

 +
|}
 +
 
 +
If the size of the buffer containing the packet data and ID (as a VarInt) is smaller than the threshold specified in the packet [[#Set Compression|Set Compression]]. It will be sent as uncompressed. This is done by setting the data length as 0. (Comparable to sending a non-compressed format with an extra 0 between the length, and packet data).
 +
 
 +
If it's larger than the threshold, then it follows the regular compressed protocol format.
 +
 
 +
Compression can be disabled by sending the packet [[#Set Compression|Set Compression]] with a negative Threshold, or not sending the Set Compression packet at all.
 +
 
 +
== 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.

==== Legacy Server List Ping ====
 +
 
 +
{{Warning|This packet uses a nonstandard format. It is never length-prefixed, and the packet ID is an Unsigned Byte instead of a VarInt.}}
 +
 
 +
While not technically part of the current protocol, legacy clients may send this packet to initiate [[Server List Ping]], and modern servers should handle it correctly.

== Plugin Channels ==
+
See [[Server List Ping#1.6]] for the details of the protocol that follows this packet.
  
Plugin channels (present in 0xFA) are used to supplement the protocol. Information about these channels can be found at their page: [[plugin channel]]
+
== Status ==
 +
{{Main|Server List Ping}}
  
== Packets ==
+
=== Clientbound ===
  
All packets begin with a single "Packet ID" byte.  Listed packet size includes this byte.  Packets are either "server to client", "client to server", or both.  If not specified, assume that the packet can be sent both ways.  There is no "length" field; for variable length packets, you must parse to the end to determine the length.

==== Pong ====
=== Keep Alive (0x00) ===
 
''Two-Way''
 
  
The server will frequently send out a keep-alive, each containing a random ID. The client must respond with the same packet.
+
{| class="wikitable"
The Beta server will disconnect a client if it doesn't receive at least one packet before 1200 in-game ticks, and the Beta client will time out the connection under the same conditions. The client may send packets with Keep-alive ID=0.

 +
 
 +
== Login ==
 +
 
 +
The login process is as follows:
 +
 
 +
# C→S: [[#Handshake|Handshake]] with Next State set to 2 (login)
 +
# C→S: [[#Login Start|Login Start]]
 +
# S→C: [[#Encryption Request|Encryption Request]]
 +
# Client auth
 +
# C→S: [[#Encryption Response|Encryption Response]]
 +
# Server auth, both enable encryption
 +
# S→C: [[#Set Compression|Set Compression]] (optional)
 +
# S→C: [[#Login Success|Login Success]]
 +
 
 +
Set Compression, if present, must be sent before Login Success. Note that anything sent after Set Compression must use the [[#With_compression|Post Compression packet format]].
 +
 
 +
For unauthenticated ("cracked"/offline-mode) and integrated servers (either of the two conditions is enough for an unencrypted connection) there is no encryption. In that case [[#Login Start|Login Start]] is directly followed by [[#Login Success|Login Success]]. The Notchian server uses UUID v3 for offline player UUIDs, with the namespace “OfflinePlayer” and the value as the player’s username. For example, Notch’s offline UUID would be derived from the string “OfflinePlayer:Notch”. This is not a requirement however, the UUID may be anything.

This packet switches the connection state to [[#Play|play]].
 +
 
 +
{{Warning2|The (notchian) server might take a bit to fully transition to the Play state, so it's recommended to wait before sending Play packets, either by setting a timeout, or waiting for Play packets from the server (usually [[#Player Info|Player Info]]).
 +
 
 +
The notchian client doesn't send any (non-[[#Keep Alive|keep alive]]) packets until the next tick/[[#Time Update|time update]] packet.
 +
}}
 +
 
 +
==== Set Compression ====
 +
 
 +
Enables compression.  If compression is enabled, all following packets are encoded in the [[#With compression|compressed packet format]].  Negative or zero values will disable compression, meaning the packet format should remain in the [[#Without compression|uncompressed packet format]].  However, this packet is entirely optional, and if not sent, compression will also not be enabled (the notchian server does not send the packet when compression is disabled).

==== Login Plugin Request ====
 +
 
 +
Used to implement a custom handshaking flow together with [[#Login_Plugin_Response | Login Plugin Response]].
 +
 
 +
Unlike plugin messages in "play" mode, these messages follow a lock-step request/response scheme, where the client is expected to respond to a request indicating whether it understood. The notchian client always responds that it hasn't understood, and sends an empty payload.

=== Chat Message (0x03) ===
+
==== Spawn Painting ====
  
''Two-Way''
+
This packet shows location, name, and type of painting.
  
The default server will check the message to see if it begins with a '/'. If it doesn't, the username of the sender is prepended and sent to all other clients (including the original sender). If it does, the server assumes it to be a command and attempts to process it. A message longer than 100 characters will cause the server to kick the client. (As of 1.3.2, the vanilla client appears to limit the text a user can enter to 100 charaters.) This limits the chat message packet length to 103 bytes. Note that this limit does not apply to incoming chat messages as the server may have prepended other information, not limited to, but usually including, a username.

Calculating the center of an image: given a (width × height) grid of cells, with <code>(0, 0)</code> being the top left corner, the center is <code>(max(0, width / 2 - 1), height / 2)</code>. E.g. <code>(1, 0)</code> for a 2×1 painting, or <code>(1, 2)</code> for a 4×4 painting.

==== Spawn Player ====
 +
 
 +
This packet is sent by the server when a player comes into visible range, ''not'' when a player joins.
 +
 
 +
This packet must be sent after the [[#Player Info|Player Info]] packet that adds the player data for the client to use when spawning a player. If the Player Info for the player spawned by this packet is not present when this packet arrives, Notchian clients will not spawn the player entity. The Player Info packet includes skin/cape data.
 +
 
 +
Servers can, however, safely spawn player entities for players not in visible range. The client appears to handle it correctly.

When in {{Minecraft Wiki|Server.properties#online-mode|online mode}}, the UUIDs must be valid and have valid skin blobs.
  
=== Time Update (0x04) ===
+
In offline mode, [[Wikipedia:Universally unique identifier#Versions 3 and 5 (namespace name-based)|UUID v3]] is used with the String <code>OfflinePlayer:&lt;player name&gt;</code>, encoded in UTF-8 (and case-sensitive).  The Notchain server uses <code>UUID.nameUUIDFromBytes</code>, implemented by OpenJDK [https://github.com/AdoptOpenJDK/openjdk-jdk8u/blob/9a91972c76ddda5c1ce28b50ca38cbd8a30b7a72/jdk/src/share/classes/java/util/UUID.java#L153-L175 here].
  
''Server to Client''
+
For NPCs UUID v2 should be used. Note:
  
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.
+
<+Grum> i will never confirm this as a feature you know that :)
  
The time of day is based on the timestamp modulo 24000. 0 is sunrise, 6000 is noon, 12000 is sunset, and 18000 is midnight.
+
In an example UUID, <code>xxxxxxxx-xxxx-Yxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx</code>, the UUID version is specified by <code>Y</code>. So, for UUID v3, <code>Y</code> will always be <code>3</code>, and for UUID v2, <code>Y</code> will always be <code>2</code>.
  
The default SMP server increments the time by <code>20</code> every second.

This packet is sent from the client to the server when the client attacks or right-clicks another entity (a player, minecart, etc).
+
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
  
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.
+

 +
==== Block Break Animation ====
  
 +
0–9 are the displayable destroy stages and each other number means that there is no animation on this coordinate.
  
{{anchor|0x08}}
+
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)
  
=== Update Health (0x08) ===
+
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 Entity Data ====
  
Food 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.
+
Sets the block entity associated with the block at the given location.

==== Block Action ====
  
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 packet is used for a number of actions and animations performed by blocks, usually non-persistent.
 +
 
 +
See [[Block Actions]] for a list of values.
 +
 
 +
{{Warning2|This packet uses a block ID, not a block state.}}

==== Block Change ====
  
''Client to Server''
+
Fired whenever a block is changed within the render distance.
  
This packet is used to indicate whether the player is on ground (walking/swimming), or airborne (jumping/falling).
+
{{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.}}

==== Boss Bar ====
  
When dropping from sufficient height, fall damage is applied when this state goes from False to True. The amount of damage applied is based on the point where it last changed from True to False. Note that there are several movement related packets containing this state.

==== Chat Message (clientbound) ====
If <code>Stance - Y</code> is less than <code>0.1</code> or greater than <code>1.65</code>, the stance is illegal and the client will be kicked with the message “Illegal Stance”.
 
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 units will result in the client being kicked for "You moved too quickly :( (Hacking?)"
 
Also if the absolute number of X or Z is set greater than <code>3.2E7D</code> the client will be kicked for "Illegal position"
 
  
 +
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.

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 backwards towards (-1, 0), or in other words, it turns clockwise instead of counterclockwise. Additionally, yaw is not clamped to between 0 and 360 degrees; any number is valid, including negative numbers and numbers greater than 360.
+
==== Declare Commands ====
  
Pitch is measured in degrees, where 0 is looking straight ahead, -90 is looking straight up, and 90 is looking straight down.
+
Lists all of the commands on the server, and how they are parsed.
  
You can get a unit vector from a given yaw/pitch via:
+
This is a directed graph, with one root node. Each redirect or child node must refer only to nodes that have already been declared.
  x = -cos(pitch) * sin(yaw)
 
  y = -sin(pitch)
 
  z = cos(pitch) * cos(yaw)

Status code 3 is never sent by a Notchian client, but it is supported by Notchian servers. If the block coordinates are within a 16-unit radius of the player's position, the server responds with a [[#0x35|Block Change]] packet containing that block's current type and metadata. No actual changes occur to the world in this case.
+
Sent by the server when an item in a slot (in a window) is added/removed.

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).

Mods and plugins can use this to send their data. Minecraft itself uses several [[plugin channel]]s. These internal channels are in the <code>minecraft</code> namespace.
 +
 
 +

Status code 4 (drop item) is a special caseIn-game, when you use the Drop Item command (keypress 'q'), a dig packet with a status of 4, and all other values set to 0, is sent from client to server.

In normal operation (ie placing a block), this packet is sent once, with the values set normally.
 
  
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, shooting bows, using buckets, etc.
+
Each block in Records is set to air. Coordinates for each axis in record is int(X) + record.x
  
In a Notchian Beta client, the block or item ID corresponds to whatever the client is currently holding, and the client sends one of these packets any time a right-click is issued on a surface, so no assumptions can be made about the safety of the IDHowever, with the implementation of server-side inventory, a Notchian server seems to ignore the item ID, instead operating on server-side inventory information and holding selection. The client has been observed (1.2.5 and 1.3.2) to send both real item IDs and -1 in a single session.

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.

==== Keep Alive (clientbound) ====
=== Animation (0x12) ===
 
  
''Two-Way''
+
The server will frequently send out a keep-alive, each containing a random ID. The client must respond with the same payload (see [[#Keep Alive (serverbound)|serverbound Keep Alive]]). 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.
  
Sent whenever an entity should change animation.
+
The Notchian server uses a system-dependent time in milliseconds to generate the keep alive ID value.

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.

Only <code>1</code> (swing arm) is sent by notchian clients. Crouching is sent via 0x13. Damage is server-side, and so is not sent by notchian clients. See also 0x26.
+
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.

''Client to Server''
+
==== Effect ====
 +
Sent when a client is to play a sound or particle effect.
  
Sent at least when crouching, leaving a bed, or sprinting.
+
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), effect 1028 (enderdragon death), and effect 1038 (end portal opening); it is ignored on other effects.
To send action animation to client use 0x28.
 
The client will send this with Action ID = 3 when "Leave Bed" is clicked.

==== Update Light ====
  
The only named entities (at the moment) are players (either real or NPC/Bot). This packet is sent by the server when a player comes into visible range, '''not''' when a player joins.
+
Updates light levels for a chunk. See {{Minecraft Wiki|Light}} for information on how lighting works in Minecraft.
  
Servers can, however, safely spawn player entities for players not in visible range. The client appears to handle it correctly.

A bit will never be set in both the block light mask and the empty block light mask, though it may be present in neither of them (if the block light does not need to be updated for the corresponding chunk section).  The same applies to the sky light mask and the empty sky light mask.

At one point, the Notchian client was not okay with receiving player entity packets, including 0x14, that refer to its own username or EID; and would teleport to the absolute origin of the map and fall through the Void any time it received them. However, in more recent versions, it appears to handle them correctly, by spawning a new entity as directed (though future packets referring to the entity ID may be handled incorrectly).

Dimension type registry:
  
An 0x15 packet is sent by the server whenever an item on the ground (say a pickaxe thrown on the ground) comes into range of the player. (note: this means range for item vision, not range for pickup!) It used to be sent by the client when an item is dropped from a tile (chest or furnace) or from inventory, but that is now done with the new packets for server-side inventory (see [[#0x66|Window click (0x66)]]).

It is completely acceptable for servers to ignore the EID issued by the client in this packet and instead create a new packet with a server-controlled EID when sending this packet out to clients.

The '''"Damage" field''' inside the slot data structure is also used to store item metadata.  For example: you mined birch wood (its id is the same as normal wood) so you must set damage to the metadata of birch wood (2). The same for wool. Id is the same but data is different. For example: you mined blue wool so your damage field should send value 0xB.

Modifiers can increase or decrease the number of items for the first input slot. The second input slot and the output slot never change the nubmer of items. The number of items may never be less than 1, and never more than the stack size. If special price and demand are both zero, only the default price is displayed. If either is non-zero, then the adjusted price is displayed next to the crossed-out default price. The adjusted prices is calculated as follows:
  
{{anchor|0x19}}

Adjusted price = default price + floor(default price x multiplier x demand) + special price

''Server to Client''
+
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.
  
This packet shows location, name, and type of painting.
+
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.

==== Entity Position and Rotation ====
  
2x1 (1, 0)

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>)

==== Open Window ====
  
This packet is new to version 4 of the protocol, and is believed to be Entity Velocity/Motion.
+
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]].
  
Velocity is believed to be in units of 1/32000 of a block per server tick (200ms);
+
{| class="wikitable"
for example, -1343 would move (-1343 / 32000) = -0.04196875 blocks per tick (or -0.20984375 blocks per second).

Most entity-related packets are subclasses of this packet. When sent from the server to the client, it may initialize the entry.
+
==== End Combat Event ====
  
For player entities, either this packet or any move/look packet is sent every game tick.
+
Unused by the Notchain client.  This data was once used for twitch.tv metadata circa 1.8.f
So the meaning of this packet is basically that the entity did not move/look since the last such packet.

This packet is sent by the server when an entity moves less then 4 blocks; if an entity moves more than 4 blocks [[#0x22|Entity Teleport]] should be sent instead.
+
==== Death Combat Event ====
  
This packet allows at most four blocks movement in any direction, because byte range is from -128 to 127. Movement is an offset of Absolute Int; to convert relative move to block coordinate offset, divide by 32.
+
Used to send a respawn screen.
