Next to the latter, you will find a series of decimal numbers (even negative) that represent the coordinates in space. Values X e Z correspond to the position of the avatar on the horizontal plane (longitude and latitude), while the value Y indicates the altitude.


    As for the values ​​you can display in the coordinates: X e Z have a range that goes from -29.999.984% a +29.999.984. At these coordinates you will find an invisible wall that marks the end of the Minecraft world. Using the teleport command, you can traverse it, by typing the absolute maximum value 30.000.000, but you will not be able to interact with the surrounding environment. The axis Y, on the other hand, has values ​​from 0 a 255 e 64 and represents the sea level.
