When I press F3 to turn on the HUD, my chunk line says something like this.

Chunk: 8 6 0 in -17 4 3

My understanding is that I am standing on block 8 6 0 in the -17 4 3 chunk. By shouldn't chunks be 2 dimensional since they go from bedrock to sky level? Why are there 3 numbers?

  • Can't test right now, but do all three numbers change when you move around? – Elias Benevedes Jan 16 '15 at 21:31

Although it is labeled as "Chunk", it is actually showing the chunk section (16*16*16) that you are in. The second number is the y value of the section.
