Those entries marked with a ‘D’ require additional data values, whilst those marked with an ‘I’ have a different ID as an inventory item. To fully define the inventory item, those marked with a B require additional inventory data. The T marked entries have tile entities associated with them to store additional data whereas items with red IDs cannot be legitimately obtained by the player as they are only accessible through "hacking" (Such as using an inventory editor) or, in multiplayer servers, using the give command. In the Creative mode only items in blue are obtainable, while in survival mode the Silk Touch enchantment are green.

You may randomly meet Wooden Planks, Cobblestone, Pressure Plates, Fences, Crafting Tables, Bookshelves, Torches, Stairs, Iron Bars, Black Wool, Chests, Lava and Furnaces in the generated NPC villages that were included in 1.8, while Mossy Stone Brick, Stone Brick, Iron Bars, Cracked Stone Brick, Monster Spawner, End Portal Frame, Wooden Planks, Bookshelves, Chest, Fence and Cobweb are seen in the strongholds and abandoned mines. Although obsidian is sourced naturally, it is separate from the arbitrary generation; but is made when water and naturally happening lava source blocks make contact.
