Time[edit]

Time in Minecraft Time in Real life
1 minute ≈0.8 seconds of gameplay.
1 hour 50 seconds of gameplay.
1 day 20 minutes of gameplay
1 week ≈2.3 hours of gameplay.
1 month ≈10 hours of gameplay.
1 year ≈5 days of gameplay.

Amount of items[edit]

1 item is the most basic measurement in quantity.

  • 1 stack = 64 Items. This applies to non-stackable and partially-stackable items as well. e.g. 64 water buckets = 1 stack of water buckets, although they do not technically stack.
One stack of a fully-stackable material (e.g. stone, diamond) will fully occupy one slot in one's inventory.
  • 1 full chest = 27 slots or 27 stacks = 1,728 items.
  • 1 inventory = 4/3 or 1.333... full chests = 36 stacks = 2,304 items.
  • 1 full double chest = 2 chests-full = 54 stacks = 3,456 items
  • 1 chunk = ~37.926 chests-full = ~2,427,259 stacks = 65,536 items.
Note: 1 chunk is a 16*16*256 piece of a Minecraft map.

Health[edit]

The basic measure of health is one hit point 1 (Half Heart.svg). One heart 2 (Heart.svg) is also commonly used when talking about health.

Hunger[edit]

Similarly, the basic unit in hunger is a food point - Half Hunger.svg - displayed as a Chicken drumstick.

A full hunger bar (Hunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svg) contains 20 food points (sticks).

Distance[edit]

The basic measure of distance is a block. One block on minecraft is one meter cubed (1m3) in real life.

So, knowing that one block is one meter cubed, we can assume that:

Metric Units[edit]

Length Blocks
1 kilometer = 1000 blocks
1 hectometer = 100 blocks
1 decameter = 10 blocks
1 meter = 1 block
1 decimeter = 0.1 blocks
1 centimeter = 0.01 blocks
1 millimeter = 0.001 blocks
Blocks Volume
1 block = 1m3
1 block = 1000 liters

Imperial/U.S Customary Units[edit]

Length Blocks
1 mile = 1,609.344 blocks
1 yard = 0.9144 blocks
1 foot = 0.3048 blocks
1 inch = 0.0254 blocks
Blocks Length
1 block = 0.000621371192 miles
= 1.0936133 yards
= 3.2808399 feet
= 39.3700787 inches
Blocks Length (approx.)
1 block 11,760 miles
≈ 1 yard
≈ 3 feet
≈ 36 inches
Blocks Volume
1 block ≈ 264 US fluid gallons
≈ 227 US dry gallons
≈ 219 Imperial Gallons
