== Data Types ==
+
The changes between versions may be viewed at [[Protocol History]].
  
All types in Java (and as such Minecraft) are [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endianness#Big-endian big-endian], that is, the most significant byte comes first. The majority of everyday computers are little endian, and using most programming languages will require converting big endian values to little endian.
+
== Definitions ==
  
These data formats are identical to those provided by the Java classes [http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/java/io/DataInputStream.html DataInputStream] and [http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/java/io/DataOutputStream.html DataOutputStream].
+
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]].

The length given by the Packet Length field is the number of bytes that remain in that packet, including the Data Length field.
 +
 
 +
If Data Length is set to zero, then the packet is uncompressed; otherwise it is the size of the uncompressed packet.
 +
 
 +
If compressed, the uncompressed length of (Packet ID + Data) must be equal to or over the threshold set in the packet [[#Set Compression|Set Compression]], otherwise the receiving party will disconnect.
 +
 
 +
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 ==
  
== Terminology ==
+
=== Clientbound ===
  
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.
+
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.

== Units of Measurement ==
+
==== Legacy Server List Ping ====
  
There are several different units of measurement used in the protocol depending on what is being described. For example, it wouldn't make much sense to send the position of a block (which is a constant multiple of 32) in a floating point double.
+
{{Warning|This packet uses a nonstandard format. It is never length-prefixed, and the packet ID is an Unsigned Byte instead of a VarInt.}}
  
A block represents 1 meter x 1 meter x 1 meter. There are 32 pixels per meter, and chunks are 16m x 128m x 16m.
+
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.

== Packets ==
+
See [[Server List Ping#1.6]] for the details of the protocol that follows this packet.
  
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.
+
== Play ==
  
=== Keep Alive (0x00) ===
+
=== Clientbound ===
  
The server will frequently send out a keep-alive, each containing a random ID. The client must respond with the same packet.
+
==== Spawn Object ====
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.
+
 
 +
Sent by the server when a vehicle or other object is created.

==== Client to Server ====
+
==== Spawn Global Entity ====
  
Sent by the client after the handshake to finish logging in. If the version is outdated or any field is invalid, the server will disconnect the client with a [[#Disconnect.2FKick_.280xFF.29|kick]]. If the client is started in offline mode, the player's username will default to <code>Player</code>, making LAN play with more than one player impossible (without authenticating) as the server will prevent multiple users with the same name.
+
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.

Sent by the server if it accepts the clients [[#Login_Request_.280x01.29|login request]]. If it didn't, it'll send a [[#Disconnect.2FKick_.280xFF.29|kick]] instead.
+
Sent by the server when a mob entity is spawned.
  
Max players is used by the client to draw the player list. Setting this value lower than the actual max players, or indeed the number of players online, will only affect the size and number of users displayed. Values above 127 will cause the player list not to be drawn. Values above 60 will cause usernames to overlap and not fit in their bounding boxes.

This is the first packet sent when the client connects and is used for [[Authentication]].
+
The {{Minecraft Wiki|Painting#Canvases|Minecraft Wiki article on paintings}} also provides a list of painting names to the actual images.
 +
 
 +
==== 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.
 +
 
 +
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).
  
==== Server to Client ====
+
For NPCs UUID v2 should be used. Note:
  
This is the first packet sent when the client connects and is used for [[Authentication]].
+
<+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>.
 +
 
 +
==== Animation (clientbound) ====
 +
 
 +
Sent whenever an entity should change animation.

A message from the client to the server, or the server to the client. The actual handling of chat messages is variable and depends on the server and client; there are no ''de facto'' standards yet.
+
Categories (these are namespaced, but with <code>:</code> replaced with <code>.</code>):
  
The Alpha 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. 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.

0–9 are the displayable destroy stages and each other number means that there is no animation on this coordinate.
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
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)
  
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.
+
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 ====
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
Fired whenever a block is changed within the render distance.
  
Sent by the server after login to specify the coordinates of the spawn point (the point at which players spawn at, and which the compass points to). It can be sent at any time to update the point compasses point at.
+
{{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.}}

+
==== Multi Block Change ====
  
Sent by the server to update/set the health of the player it is sent to. Added in protocol version 5.
+
Fired whenever 2 or more blocks are changed within the same chunk on the same tick.
  
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.
+
{{Warning|Changing blocks in chunks not loaded by the client is unsafe (see note on [[#Block Change|Block Change]]).}}

=== Respawn (0x09) ===
+
To decode the position into a world position:
  
Sent by the client when the player presses the "Respawn" button after dying. The server then teleports the user to the spawn point, and sends a respawn packet in response. The client will not leave the respawn screen until it receives a respawn packet.
+
<syntaxhighlight lang="java">
 +
worldX = (horizPos >> 4 & 15) + (chunkX * 16);
 +

worldZ = (horizPos & 15) + (chunkZ * 16);
 +
</syntaxhighlight>
 +
 
 +
==== Tab-Complete (clientbound) ====
 +
 
 +
The server responds with a list of auto-completions of the last word sent to it. In the case of regular chat, this is a player username. Command names and parameters are also supported. The client sorts these alphabetically before listing them.

==== Declare Commands ====
  
'''Client to Server only'''
+
Lists all of the commands on the server, and how they are parsed.
  
This packet is used to indicate whether the player is on ground (walking/swimming), or airborne (jumping/falling).
+
This is a directed graph, with one root node.  Each redirect or child node must refer only to nodes that have already been declared.

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.
+
==== Confirm Transaction (clientbound) ====
  
This packet was previously referred to as Flying
+
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.

For an enchanting table, the following numerical IDs are used:
  
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.

Sent by the server when an item in a slot (in a window) is added/removed.
  x = -cos(pitch) * sin(yaw)
 
  y = -sin(pitch)

To set the cursor (the item currently dragged with the mouse), use -1 as Window ID and as Slot.
  
A combination of [[#Player_Look_.280x0C.29|Player Look]] and [[#Player_Position_.280x0B.29|Player position]].
+
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.
  
==== Client to Server ====
+
==== 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).

==== Named Sound Effect ====
 +
{{See also|#Sound Effect}}
  
[[File:Icon_exclaim.gif|:!:]] Stance and Y seems to be the opposite as in the table (from Client to Server = X, Y, Stance, Z, froom Server to client = X, Stance, Y, Z) please confirm ! [BackBone`:] The opposite stance<->y confirmed, however the given structs had the server and client struct reversed, which I fixed.
+
Used to play a sound effect on the client. Custom sounds may be added by resource packs.
  
[[File:Icon_exclaim.gif|:!:]] When you connect to the official server, it will push a 0x0D packet. If you do not immediately respond with a 0x0D (or maybe 0x0A-0x0C) packet with similar and valid information, it will have unexpected results, such as map chunks not loading and future 0x0A-0x0D packets being ignored.

Sent when the player mines a block. A Notchian server only accepts digging packets with coordinates within a 6-unit radius of the player's position.

Status can (currently) be one of four values:
+
==== Entity Status ====
 +
 
 +
Entity statuses generally trigger an animation for an entity.  The available statuses vary by the entity's type (and are available to subclasses of that type as well).

 +
 
 +
==== Explosion ====
 +
 
 +
Sent when an explosion occurs (creepers, TNT, and ghast fireballs).
 +
 
 +
Each block in Records is set to air. Coordinates for each axis in record is int(X) + record.x
  
Notchian clients send a 0 (started digging) when they start digging and a 2 (finished digging) once they think they are finished. If digging is aborted, no notice is sent to the server; the client simply does not send a 2 (finished digging).

Status code 4 (drop item) is a special case.  In-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.
+
==== Unload Chunk ====
  
The face can be one of six values, representing the face being hit:
+
Tells the client to unload a chunk column.

In 1.7.3, when a player opens a door with left click the server receives Packet 0xE+start digging and opens the door.
+
It is legal to send this packet even if the given chunk is not currently loaded.
  
=== Player Block Placement (0x0F) ===
+
==== Change Game State ====
  
Sent when the player places a block or (probably) an item. The coordinates sent in this packet are actually the block being built against, which combined with the direction offset tell you where the block should be placed. This is required to correctly position furnaces, torches, etc…
+
Used for a wide variety of game state things, from whether to bed use to gamemode to demo messages.

If the Block/ItemID field is greater than or equal to 0, then the last 2 fields (amount and damage) are read. Otherwise, they are not read.

==== Open Horse Window ====
When 'placing' (Or more accurately, using) your empty hand, the client sends -1 as the Block/ItemID
 
  
The direction can be one of six values, representing the face the block/item is being placed against:
+
This packet is used exclusively for opening the horse GUI.  [[#Open Window|Open Window]] is used for all other GUIs.

In normal operation (ie placing a block), this packet is sent once, with the values set normally.
+
==== Keep Alive (clientbound) ====
  
This packet has a special case where X, Y, Z, and Direction are all -1. 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.
+
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.
  
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 ID.  However, 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 Notchian server uses a system-dependent time in milliseconds to generate the keep alive ID value.
  
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.

Sent when the player changes the slot selection
+
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.
  
=== Use Bed (0x11) ===
+
==== Effect ====
'''Server to Client'''<br/>
+
 
Associated with players using beds.
+
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.

Types are based off of rows and columns in <code>map_icons.png</code>:
  
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.

==== Trade List ====
  
The Notchian client is not okay with receiving player entity packets, including 0x14, that refer to its own username or EID; it will teleport to the absolute origin of the map and fall through the Void any time it receives them.

The list of trades a villager NPC is offering.

=== Pickup Spawn (0x15) ===
+
[[File:1.14-merchant-slots.png|thumb|The merchant UI, for reference]]
 +
{{-}}
  
A pickup spawn 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 [[#Window click (0x66)|0x66]]).
+
==== Entity Relative Move ====
  
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.
+
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.

'''"Damage" field'''
 
This field is also used to store item metadata. E.g. 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 case is wool. Id is the same but data is different.For example: you mined blue wool so your damage field should send value 0xB.

==== Entity Look And Relative Move ====
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
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>)

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 ([[#Destroy_Entity_.280x1D.29|0x1D]] does that), and it doesn't add it to your inventory ([[#Window_items_.280x68.29|0x67]] does that). The server only checks for items to be picked up after each [[#Player_Position_.280x0B.29|Player Position]] and [[#Player_Position_.26_Look_.280x0D.29|Player Position & Look]] packet sent by the client.

==== Entity Look ====

=== Add Object/Vehicle (0x17) ===

==== Entity ====
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
This packet may be used to initialize an entity.
  
Sent by the server when an Object/Vehicle is created.
+
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.

=== Destroy Entity (0x1D) ===
+
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.
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
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.
  
Sent by the server when an Entity is to be destroyed on the client.
+
==== Face Player ====
 +
 
 +
Used to rotate the client player to face the given location or entity (for <code>/teleport [<targets>] <x> <y> <z> facing</code>).

 +
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.
  
=== Entity (0x1E) ===
+
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?)”.
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
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”.
  
Most entity-related packets are subclasses of this packet. When sent from the server to the client, it may initialize the entry.
+
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.
  
For player entities, either this packet or any move/look packet is sent every game tick.
+
Pitch is measured in degrees, where 0 is looking straight ahead, -90 is looking straight up, and 90 is looking straight down.
So the meaning of this packet is basically that the entity did not move/look since the last such packet.

About the Flags field:
  
'''Server to Client only'''
+
<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 moves less then 4 blocks; if an entity moves more then 4 blocks [[#Entity_Teleport_.280x22.29|Entity Teleport]] should be sent instead.

==== Respawn ====
  
This packet is sent by the server when an entity rotates. Example: "Yaw" field 64 means a 90 degree turn.
+
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 sent by the server when an entity rotates and moves.
+
Sent by the server to indicate that the client should switch advancement tab. Sent either when the client switches tab in the GUI or when an advancement in another tab is made.
Since a byte range is limited from -128 to 127, and movement is offset of Absolute Int,
 
this packet allows at most four blocks movement in any direction. (-128/32 == -4)
