Would any one person ever be able to play every combination of the game in their lifetime? Today Austin is going to try to answer the question of "How BIG is Minecraft?"

    oke heres my theory, when the "old civilisation" came to the nether they encounterd the piglins. they had wars with each other. and the soul sand biomes are remnets of battlefields hence all the soul sand of fallen soldiers and the skeletons, the ghast are ghosts of the giant creatures where u can find the bones of. this also explaines why piglins are hostile towards the player. the zombified piglins in the nether got infected by the old builders when they came to the nether

    There are also Shulker boxes and pouches now. Plus there are particle effects and experience points. There are also sign combinations. There are name tag configurations as well. Plus there are cloud configurations.

    There's also large mobs such as the ravager. And I suppose there's entity cramming too.

    I just figured out how to figure out the thing you mentioned about how long it would take to repeat itself. Just take the number of different worlds and plug it into this: [(Number of worlds)^2]^(Number of worlds) This would take the chance of any specific world being achieved, and then calculate how many times a world would need to be created to match that specific world twice.

    You forgot about the villagers badges and grass color which smoothly blends and the clouds and time of day and heads move more and some mobs take up multiple blocks and can be dead or alive and grass thing same with water and each variable of water and lava flow and st riders have two different forms and the hundreds of animations for inventory and mobs and particles lalala etc etc.

    I just realized your math is wrong. If set up a random seed and copy that seed and load it up it will be the same so its wrong. The correct math was is every version×the possibe seed in every version×bonus chest possibility. I didnt bother to do the math Edit:I forgot the entities and mobs can spawn in caves, spawn chance so its bigger i think

    This number is going to get even larger. Mojang is adding 64 blocks to the top of the world and bottom of the world.

  • Prismal

    You forgot about shulker boxes in chests, each of which contains the same amount of items as a normal chest, so chests really have around 33095^27^27 combinations, and shulker boxes aren't even the only thing you forgot about, so that number is probably a lot less than it should be

  • nika andriadze
    nika andriadze

    You forgot advanced options, like bonus chest and all of it's random item probabilities, and also in-game game rules, which could not even slightly change anything in the number, but at least I have something more complex: possibilities of double chests, Shulker boxes with items, and their total possible alignments and colors, and trapped chests and double trapped chests, AND ENDER CHESTS AND Minecart chests, which are individual entity, btw and can stand a million more different ways and minecarts with entities in them, boats with entities in them minecart hoppers, with items in them, minecart furnaces, active minecart furnaces, minecarts in boats and entities or chests or hoppers or different Spawners or other entities or players command blocks with different types and different command outputs in them, item frames on every single type of block on on every single sides of every single possible block, and maps within it, which can be soooo many different types, also command blocks of different type, and over googleplex different characters on them and signs with different characters and stuff written on them, and different banners, or different entities like zombies wearing different armor with different enchantments on them and differently renamed items, differently renamed entities and mobs and structure blocks with different characters written inside of them and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Much more!!!!!!!! !!!!.

  • vert2552

    Well to be honest not exactly that If we gonna assume the stuff player could build, we do have to count every possible block state for all 3 world types BUT we still shouldnt just 3x the number as you simply cannot find some of them mobs in other worlds that means even if its just different big number, its still 'a little' off

  • DJ Cykes
    DJ Cykes

    i thought the Austin Kill Count returns oh well

  • Wolfliker

    Things to consider, beyond the concept of a bunch of shulkers in chests, barrels, items frames, etc, how about the fact that if an item is NAMED it can no longer stack with other items that are technically the same, thereby increasing the number of block spots by however many possible characters exist per space times the number of spaces allowed to name an item while IGNORING that containers that have been named show their name when opened and therefore could technically count as a different block as well - oh, can't forget the existence of writing on signs, or the existence of WRITABLE BOOKS which can contain at least 40 pages filled with many random characters including nothing at all - and I think I understand just a slight fraction of what he must have felt while doing his calculations because I've no doubt I could sit here typing away more things that could be added while simultaneously ignoring the fact that MODS exist and add an exponentially increasing number of things as well (bits and chisels, for example). I'd likely need a google doc to effectively list all possible variables and it really isn't worth my time (or yours either, really). I believe I have made my point.

    Austin AUSTIN you could've done the block counting part way ez-er do a secret feature that is still widely unknown "when this comment was written" if you go to the creat new world tab you can change the world generation And there is a secret if you hold shift while going through the world type's there is a secret world called debug and you cannot break blocks you are stuck in spectator and the *FUN PART* it shows every state a block can be in including water loged stuff and floating fire and water loged camp fires and half beds and much much more.

    Austin you could put shulkers in chests also the new 1.17 update makes it so that you can go down to -64 soooooooooooo I don’t know if that will visibly change the minecraft universal constant but yeah that change will times the storage space by any given chest by 27 storage slots per slot

    Should we tell him that there are other containers than chest? trapped chests, barrels, shulker boxes, hoppers. Well, even some entities have inventories (chest/hopper minecarts, player, ender man can hold some blocks, piglins/zombies/skeletons can wear armor that can be named, enchanted, fox can hold any item, like I don't know, renamed chest holding 27 stacks of renamed chests holding 27 stacks or renamed chests...)
