java server version 1.13 has an introspection procedure that dumps out the game metadata definitions for blocks, items and commands. The procedure is:

  1. Download the server.jar from here:
  2. Run the following command against the downloaded server.jar: 

    java -cp server.jar --all

  3. Explore the generated directory for the data in JSON file format (also attached from 1.13.1)

Bedrock chunk generator

This is a small machine to place in a vanilla world which moves a player around to pre-generate chunks of vanilla terrain.

Import it using MCEdit Unified 1.6.x into the lower X Z chunk you want to use and then start it by pressing the button!

Exit the world and remove the machine when you are finished generating.

DREADNAUGHT - #ModJam 5 #MapJam entry

posted Apr 2, 2018, 2:20 PM by Adrian Brightmoore

The 2018 Easter long weekend corresponded with @Searge and the @ModJamTeam running a Minecraft jam called #ModJam.

This is my entry - built over about 8 hours, with some custom tooling developed to generate some of the more funky shapes.

You lead a crew of soldiers whose job is to clear space of giant abandoned war ships, called "dreadnaughts": Reach the ship, get to the helm, activate the self destruct and get out.

Dreadnaughts are massive vessels designed to travel vast distances between star systems using powerful drives. Once floating cities armed with the most modern weapons, their technology has become dangerous and must be retired.

Skull Island Nightmare CTM 6

Your airship draws as close as the currents allow. Somewhere on the mysterious Skull Island is the hidden wool. Recover it and return safely to your ship!

Space Nightmare CTM 5

A quick CTM for Strawberry Jam 16. The world download is linked below.

Your space ship has been infested by alien creatures. Survive while locating the co-ordinate wool blocks (Yellow, Orange, Red) to program the navigation computer on the bridge and warp home.

Because your ship has been drawn close to a star, anything you throw on the ground with burst into flame. Use this to your advantage!

Good luck.
