Name

air

Air is a block in Minecraft used to represent unoccupied spaces.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Air cannot be kept in the inventory and can only be destroyed or created by the placement or removal of other blocks respectively.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Most generated structures generate air. Air is also generated in any space not occupied by another block.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Air, like any non-solid blocks, are spaces the player and other mobs are allowed to move within without suffocating.

History[edit | edit source]

Indev
? Air affected liquid blocks that were horizontally adjacent to it. If air was touching the fluid block, there was a ⅔ chance the fluid block would disappear and make the pool recede and a ⅓ chance the fluid block would fill the air, making the pool spread.
