Get chunk boundaries in Minecraft by providing x, z coordinates in that chunk. This is a Python rewrite of my AutoHotkey program.

MC Chunk Get V2


The AppImage provided here does not run on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial and does not pass the AppImage Hub standards. I am working on this. Both of the portable versions of this program work just fine for both Windows and Linux and the installer works for Windows.

The AppImage provide here and this REAMDE are: Under Construction

Get coordinate boundaries of a chunk by providing any x, z coordinates inside of that chunk in Minecraft.

If you are anything like me you are a perfectionist or truly OCD or both & you like to build everything aligned to chunks if you can or at least symmetrically/relatively positioned even if you don’t need to. I built this applcation to help me quickly find the a chunk boundaries coordinates without having to do the math each time. I can do it in my head, but I’m getting old with not enough time that I just don’t want to waste.

This application is a cross platform Python1 rewrite of my AutoHotkey2 GUI that does the exact same thing.

Note: This does not currently work on the older ‘Xenial’ version of Ubuntu or any OS that uses older versions of the GLIBC library. You can find more information in the ‘Issue’ section of the main repository. I am working on fixing this.


Very simple to use, you can run it like any other gui application in your respective operating system.

Provide the X & Z coordinates of any position within a chunk in Minecraft & click [Copy] (or Alt+c) to copy the coordinates into your clipboard. This program shows the coordinate pair as soon as you provide both coordinates & will clear if both cooridinates are not provided. You can clear all input with the [Clear] button (or Alt+p).

This is an open source project & there are a few ways you can use this; both installable & portable in Windows & portable in Linux for now, but both can be used compiled or from source; your choice.

You can even grab the source project & compile yourself if you know how to do so.

Windows Install


Download the EXE/Installer and double click the EXE (or run from cmd).

Portable (Compiled)

Download the Compiled Portable/Archive & extract it to wherever you like your portable programs. Run the provided EXE in the main folder to run the program.

Linux Install

Portable (Compiled)

AppImages are easy just download the Linux Compiled AppImage/Portable & place it where you want it & make it executable & run it by either double clicking (or however you have execution set up) or from the shell:

$ cd /path/to/AppImage/
$ chmod u+x mc_chunk_get_v2.AppImage # set executable
$ ./mc_chunk_get_v2.AppImage &


$ chmod u+x /path/to/AppImage/mc_chunk_get_v2.AppImage
$ /path/to/AppImage/mc_chunk_get_v2.AppImage &

You can change the AppImage’s name to whatever you like E.g.: ‘mcchunkgetv2’ & place it in your $PATH of choice.
