Mojang recently released their free Minecraft: Pi edition - complete with hackable Python API.
Would you like to learn how to hack Minecraft with Python on your Raspberry Pi?
This week's Micro Mart magazine (issue 1257) contains the first of my two part mini-series on Pi Minecraft hacking.
Part one guides you through Minecraft installation before demonstrating how to interact with a live running game with Python's interactive mode and simple statements.
Part two dives further into the API with a step-by-step tutorial on creating a Minecraft hack module.
Here are a few extracts from part one:
Mojang's supplied Python application programming interface (API) ensures you're able to make dramatic physical changes to the Minecraft world with through code-driven crafting. With this API even a small program can offer a surprising amount of game functionality.And, of course, it's great fun.
So, let your imagination run free. Python code can rapidly generate new landscapes, construct homes, build defences, plant crops, and so much more.
