Map File Format[]

Each edition of Minecraft uses its own file format to store levels. The following information about the different level file formats can be used by software developers to create map editors, servers, level generators, and other programs. Blocks, items and data values are common to all map types.

Map Formats[]

  • Classic Level Format used by the old Minecraft Classic: Survival, Creative, and Multiplayer.
  • Indev Level Format used by Minecraft Indev.
  • Alpha Level Format used by Minecraft Alpha (previously Infdev).
  • Beta Level Format used by Minecraft Beta (from Beta 1.3).
  • Anvil Level Format used by Minecraft (from 1.2)
  • Pocket Edition Level Format used by Minecraft Pocket Edition.

Notch's notes on NBT format files.

Note: As of Minecraft Weekly 12w07a, there is a new NBT tag with ID 11: an integer array tag. This tag is not described in the original NBT docs linked above.

Schematic files based on NBT format are used by a few 3rd party utilities to store sections of a map for later use.

Other Formats[]

  • Map Item Format


Mod Creation Tools[]

  • Minecraft Coder Pack used to create and edit mods to both the Minecraft client and server
