Minecraft is a very large game, with many mechanical and places to explore, however, some more advanced players may need a little more technical options. Today we talk about one of those technical functions: View the id of objects or blocks Minecraft Viewing the ID or name objects or blocks in Minecraft

. what is ID?

in programming, they are generally used English words. ‘namespaced Identifiers’ is a very important concept in code, especially code games like Minecraft.

Namespace, or Area Name , it is a group of characters used to identify and refer to objects (in programming). Identifiers, IDs , are symbols used to designate entities in language.

Therefore, namespaced Identifiers, albeit a bit redundant, is how he tells the names that they are assigned to each of Minecraft to avoid confusion by the computer. Is a form of declare, identify and separate objects, entities, etc … avoiding ambiguity.

The need for ID comes from the need for humans to understand the code for to add things. Computers can separate all kinds of objects, but not us. Why are assigned names easy to understand each resource (object, block, entity, etc …) within the juice for anyone with a little knowledge can understand and use.

However, computers do not understand the concept of names and before being read by a machine, these names should be converted to strings.

it is important to understand this because it is the purpose of the IDs in the game at the moment. Minecraft comes with a resource group; but you can add more using the best mods. Therefore, it is important to save and activate the game these resources separately, without confusion.

All the resources of the game have the name ‘Minecraft’ , and identifier indicates the type of object that is. For example, diamonds are ‘minecraft: diamonds’, and pig iron that can get are ‘minecraft: iron_ingots’.

Here the Namespace is ‘minecraft’, while the Identifier is ‘diamonds’ or ‘iron_ingots’. Hence the name namespaced Identifiers, abbreviated as ID.

Why serve the ID to a player?

use commands < / strong> ‘/ give’, ‘/ Summon’, ‘/ effect’ or ‘/ Enchant’, among others, it is important to know the ID of objects, entities, effects and enchantments. A writing the command in the bar, the game will fill the text with valid data.

But sometimes you need to see the ID tags or an object that you already have, for save time . For that, just look at the debug menu. Note that this menu is available only in the Java edition of the game. In the edition of Bedrock, there is no way to see the ID of a block or object normally. In addition internally in the code, the ID work differently.

How to see the object IDs?

If you followed the articles of the blog, chances are you are familiar with the debug menu . The debug menu is activated at the press F3. However, F3 also has other technical functions. For example pressing C F3 and copy the coordinates of the player to teleport.

the function that interests us today is F3 and H. a pressing both keys at the same time, you can see technical information objects in your inventory, including ID objects , the durability of the tools and armor, the color of the armor and the scale of the maps.

How do the ID block? < p> the same debug menu, activated a pressing F3, you can see the ID of the , as long as they are within the range of action. If you can break a block or put something on it, you will see your ID.

For this, you simply have to open the Debug menu and look directly at the . At the right side of the screen in the ‘Targeted Block’ section, you will see information about the block. This information includes the block ID , allows you to view their coordinates, their status and their labels. The debug menu is very important. We invite you to learn how to use it.
