[edit] Time

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.

[edit] Amount of items

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.

[edit] Health

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.

[edit] Hunger

Similarly, the basic unit in hunger is a food point - Half Hunger.svg - displayed as a shank of ham.

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

[edit] Distance

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

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

  • 1 kilometer = 1000 minecraft blocks
  • 0.001 kilometers = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 mile = 1609.344 minecraft blocks (rounded equals about 1609 blocks)
  • 0.00062 miles = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 yard = 0.91439 minecraft blocks
  • 1.09361 yards = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 meter = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 foot = 0.30480 minecraft blocks
  • 3.28083 feet (rounded equals about 3.3 feet) = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 inch = 0.02540 minecraft blocks
  • 39.37007 inches (rounded equals about 39.4 inches) = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 decimeter = 0.1 minecraft blocks
  • 10 decimeters = 1 minecraft block
  • 1 centimeter = 0.01 minecraft blocks
  • 100 centimeters = 1 minecraft block
