Minecraft Data Values

This list shows the Data Values in Minecraft. Data values are used everywhere in Minecraft. You can’t see them, but they define all block, items, biomes etc.

Data values are used to spawn items, where you need to know the block or item id, for example with the /give command used in the Single Player Commands mod.

If you find this list useful, please +1 us and Like, thank you.

Minecraft 1.6.2 Block ID's

Item ID’s

All items have values above 255, making it easy to separate the Block ID’s from the Item ID’s. Entries marked with a D require additional data to fully define the item in a Beta world. The chainmail set is currently unobtainable without hacking or, in multiplayer, the /give server command. It is available in Creative mode, however.
