Sun mc


Game Mechanic Sprite



First Appearance

Update 0.7.3

The Sun is a bright white graphical element in the sky that first appeared in Update 0.7.3. It appears during the day and emits a light level of 15 worldwide.


The Sun is used to symbolize the beginning and the end of a day. Since it emits a light level of 15, Hostile Mobs cannot spawn during the daytime. Most undead mobs such as ZombiesSkeletons, and Strays burn when in direct contact with Sunlight.
