comment How is world data stored in Minecraft?
@MathhewScharley: Minecraft loads and unloads 10 chunks around me every frame? I'm impressed that my system can handle that at a decent frame rate.

@MathhewScharley: OK. In-game, are blocks stored in chunks? It seems like with things like dynamic lighting (given the precomputed lighting found in chunks) you would need some other data structure for world data.

But theoretically, you will eventually explore all 130 quadrillion blocks, right? Obviously that would take hundreds of hours, but never mind that. Would the level data in that case just be massive?
