What time does the sun rise on Minecraft? I would like to know because I am building a map where it needs that time for the map. By this I mean when the sun creates a purple color in the sky.
The Minecraft day is 20 (real-life) minutes long, which translates into 24000 game ticks (there are 20 ticks per second).
Sunrise is implemented as the last part of the day-night cycle and is 90 seconds (1800) ticks) long (according to the wiki), starting at around game time 22200
when the sky will look like this (facing due east)
to game time 0 when the sky will look like this (also facing due east)
22796 is the soonest a directly exposed daylight sensor powers on in the morning.
the day starts at 0+k*20(minutes)*60(s/min)*20(ticks/s)=0+k*24000 ticks with the sunrise being the 1.5 minutes before that point
the full day-night cycle is 20 minutes and minecraft time is measured in ticks (of which there are 20 in each seconds
