== 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 localhost connections (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]].

==== Set Compression ====
  
This packet shows location, name, and type of painting.
+
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).

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.

==== Spawn Weather Entity ====
  
==== Spawn Player ====
+
With this packet, the server notifies the client of thunderbolts striking within a 512 block radius around the player. The coordinates specify where exactly the thunderbolt strikes.
 
 
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 List Item|Player List Item]] packet that adds the player data for the client to use when spawning a player. If the Player List Item for the player spawned by this packet is not present when this packet arrives, Notchian clients will not spawn the player entity. The Player List Item 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.

Sent by the server when a living entity is spawned.
 
 
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).
 
 
 
For NPCs UUID v2 should be used. Note:
 
 
 
<+Grum> i will never confirm this as a feature you know that :)
 
 
 
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>.

* 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)
 
 
 
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.}}

==== Chat Message (clientbound) ====  
+
==== Block Break Animation ====
 +
 
 +
0–9 are the displayable destroy stages and each other number means that there is no animation on this coordinate.
  
Identifying the difference between Chat/System Message is important as it helps respect the user's chat visibility optionsSee [[Chat#Processing chat|processing chat]] for more info about these positions.
+
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)
  
{{warning2|Game info accepts json formatting but does not display it, although the deprecated §-based formatting works. This 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.}}
+
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 is a directed graph, with one root nodeEach redirect or child node must refer only to nodes that have already been declared.
 
 
Applies a cooldown period to all items with the given type.  Used by the Notchian server with enderpearlsThis 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) ====
+
  | minecraft:sharpness
 
+
  | 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.

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.

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) ====
 +
 
 +
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.

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.

Displays the named particle
+
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).

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.

==== Entity ====
 
 
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 ====
+
|
 
 
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 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 Look And Relative Move ====
+
  | Mob spawn particle effect: smoke + flames
 
 
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>)

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.

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 Position And Look (clientbound) ====  
+
==== Entity Position ====
  
Updates the player's position on the server. This packet will also close the “Downloading Terrain” screen when joining/respawning.
+
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.
  
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?)”.
+
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.
 
 
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 Position and Rotation ====
  
<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>)

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.

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:

  |rowspan="4"| Array
 
+

<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>
 
 
 
==== 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).

==== Entity Metadata ====
+
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 ====
  
Updates one or more [[Entities#Entity Metadata Format|metadata]] properties for an existing entity. Any properties not included in the Metadata field are left unchanged.
+
Used to rotate the client player to face the given location or entity (for <code>/teleport [<targets>] <x> <y> <z> facing</code>).

==== Attach Entity ====
+
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.
  
This packet is sent when an entity has been {{Minecraft Wiki|Lead|leashed}} to another entity.
+
Pitch is measured in degrees, where 0 is looking straight ahead, -90 is looking straight up, and 90 is looking straight down.

==== Entity Velocity ====
+
About the Flags field:
  
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).
+
<Dinnerbone> It's a bitfield, X/Y/Z/Y_ROT/X_ROT. If X is set, the x value is relative and not absolute.
