Name

air

Air represents unoccupied spaces. Although it is internally treated as every other block, air cannot be kept in the inventory and can only be destroyed or created by the placement or removal of other blocks. Air and non-solid blocks are the only spaces the player and other mobs are allowed to move within without mods or glitches. The sole exception is the Ender Dragon which can move within Obsidian, Bedrock, and End Stone.

[edit] Appearance

Air is a completely invisible block.

[edit] History

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.

1.7.2 13w38b Air is now a block[1] and can be kept in the inventory.
13w38c Air cannot be kept in the inventory anymore, but is internally still handled as a block.

[edit] Trivia

  • It is possible to survive without air, because other non-solid blocks (that aren't fluid blocks) won't drown or suffocate the player.
  • Air is the only gas in Minecraft.
