Product description

From the Back Cover

Learn valuable programming skills while building your own Minecraft adventure!

If you love playing Minecraft, but get frustrated by build times and want to add your own mods, this book was designed just for you. Working within the game itself, you′ll develop Python programming skills that apply way beyond Minecraft as you learn to write programs, set up and run your own local Minecraft server, and interact with the game on PC, Mac, and Raspberry Pi. You′ll learn how to use coordinates, how to recognize your player′s position, how to create and delete blocks, and how to observe when a block has been hit.

The adventures aren′t limited to the virtual – you′ll also learn how to connect Minecraft to electronic components so your Minecraft world can sense and control objects in the real world! Each lesson is backed by a video to make sure you understand the material, and the companion website gives you access to code files, reference tables, a bonus adventure, and badges to collect for your accomplishments. Written specifically for young people by professional Minecraft geeks, this fun, easy–to–follow guide helps you expand Minecraft for more exciting adventures, and put your personal stamp on the objects you create. Your own Minecraft world will be unlike anyone else′s on the planet, and you′ll pick up programming skills that will serve you for years to come on other devices and projects. Among other things, you will:

  • Write Minecraft programs in Python on your Mac, PC, or Raspberry Pi
  • Build houses, structures, and make a 3D duplicating machine
  • Build custom game control panels using simple circuits
  • Build intelligent objects and program an alien invasion
  • Build huge 2D and 3D structures like spheres and pyramids
  • Plan and write a complete interactive arena game

Adventures in Minecraft teaches you how to make your favourite game even better, while you learn to program by customizing your Minecraft journey. Visit www.wiley.com/go/adventuresinminecraft to download starter kits and code for your adventures.
