We all know Minecraft is a BIG game. Not just in popularity, but in the scope of what you can do. You see, there are so many WAYS to play Minecraft... but how many? Would any one person ever be able to play every combination of the game in their lifetime? Today Austin is going to try to answer the question of "How BIG is Minecraft?"

    2:44 Hey Austin, did you forget that there is more than just googolplex? There is googolplexain(made of 100 googolplexs of 0's), and googolplexianth(made of 100 googolplexians of 0's). Now those numbers *SHOULD* be able to be divided by the number you made up.

    Quick question: Would giving each entity a name tag change anything about the numbers? Would the entity number just be doubled-or-so (because of the Dinnerbone effect or the Toast effect on rabbits) or would each name tag possibility be its own state-of-being? And what’s with armour? Like, armor on a chicken rider or a zombie or a villager? And speaking of villagers, what about their variations? Like their desert/jungle/plains variants as well as their professions and THEIR differentiating trade offers? What about potion effects? Debuffs? Shulkers, obviously? Redstone-interactive objects? Hoppers and furnaces and all the other blocks that can hold objects inside them? Though I do fear that those factors wouldn’t change the number, at all.

    So there might be theoretical states, that are absolutely not going to be generated. Maybe generated isn't your point though. But certain blocks are only going to go in certain locations based on other blocks; leaves for example. Also some blocks don't actually naturally occur (comparators) and others do naturally occur but only in certain locations (TNT).

    Shulker boxes and all the permutations of their inventories across all colors they come in. Then for mobs there's the permutations of villager trades each, Endermen block carried, Piglin inventories, villager inventories, saddled and unsaddled rideable mobs horse armor type, all types of llama and their carpet types, parrot sounds learned, mob equipment and weapons. Then there's the biggest one that you missed which is time of day in the minecraft world 20 ticks per second and 20 minutes per day which will also effect light levels. Damage states of each entity. Entities other than mobs and the time remaining on their decay timer to despawn, and how many entities are present in stackable entities, while on non mob entities arrows have granular rotation if it's a shot arrow instead of item arrow depending on the angle it struck the block aswell as the despawn decay timer and multiply that by all states it can have, normal arrow vs effect arrow which means all potion effects plus spectral and how longs left on their effects and even with normal arrows you have whether it was shot from a bow with infinite making it irretrievable so normal arrow is multiplied by 2 with all the granular rotation.

    Austin that is totally writable i did so for fun well.... all except for the last 1.31134 power part, but 10¹⁰ to the power of 10 is called a duotrigintillion, so someone did this for fun, AND NAMED IT... for fun which might i add is one digit less than a googol which has 100 0s it is tremendously huge but i wrote that number down because i was bored... so who ever reads this comment, remember that this was done for fun and named by a professional, and me a freshman in high school also did it because i was bored, btw the closest i got to the actual number shown was 10+99 0s + 10+48.5 0s but that would be 10¹⁰ to the power of 10 to the power of .5

    What about enderchests? They make the number even lager per player. Then you shouldnt forget about redstonechests, shulkerboxes, chest minecarts, furnaces, campfires, soul campfires, smokers and more... The upper and the lower part of each furnace can be any item if you use hoppers, the state of burning can be changed, the output also can be stacked. In hoppers you have 5 slots for any item. In droppers and dispensers there are 9 slots for any item. Shulkerboxes can store items even inside your inventory, but they cant store other shulker boxes. What about the amount of combinations for text on signs, commands in command blocks, stories in books etc.? And if you create a map and lock the map it cant be changed anymore, until the maximum amount of maps for this world exists. What about the inventory of a player and the potion effects a player has? And there are items like armor and swords that break due to durability... what about the durability of those items? Also the health of mobs and the hunger of players can change. There also are enchantments you can put on items and they can be renamed, just like chests and animals. Also the amount of different tropical fish variations is not listed in the mob list. The amount is even bigger than the total number of mobs you said. Also there are sheep that can be colored and sheared. Snowman can be sheared as well. Dropped items also count as mobs btw. And what if there are multiple mobs in one block? What about the timer of creepers/tnt? Also there is the possibility to create things the block behind the world border. And whats the number for bedrock edition if you would include everything in the calculation? Bedrock is really infinite due to a different language and saving mechanism. So good luck ;D

    Technically 2 chests together can make a big chest and though it doesn't change how many spaces are in the chest since it's the same as 2 chests, it does mean that the chest as 1 or 2 together can be facing in any direction and be open or closed.
