Sharing a Server:
In previous weeks before we stopped for Christmas, some people struggled to make progress through no fault of their own: they were hampered by CanaryMod crashing a lot on some people’s computers.
To work around this, everyone can connect to my computer as the Minecraft server, and I will also create a shared folder on the computer so you can drop your mods into it.
Please review these notes from several weeks ago: Topic 2: Connecting to Each Other’s Servers.
This Week’s Challenge:
This week (and for the next week or two), your challenge is build a substantial mod in ScriptCraft that, when you run it, will create an impressive-looking structure!
A key step to success here is planning and design: as I have said before, a programmer’s most important tools are paper and pencils, for figuring out what you want to create before you write code for it.
You should review the following:
- ScriptCraft commands, as described here: https://github.com/walterhiggins/ScriptCraft/blob/master/docs/YoungPersonsGuideToProgrammingMinecraft.md#building-stuff-in-minecraft
- Topic 5 on starting to make our own mods: https://cdathenry.wordpress.com/2015/11/13/modderdojo-topic-5-time-to-get-constructive/
