The great thing about the Raspberry Pi Edition of Minecraft is that you can manipulate the game world using Python scripts. You can move the player as well as create and destroy blocks. This allows you to create structures in seconds that would take hours to create by hand.
By repeating a script you can quickly create structures you have designed. For example you could write a script to create a tower and a section of wall and use it to quickly create a massive castle.
…To test your setup you can use the following simple script. It creates a cube made of stone and places you on top of it.
# Import Minecraft libraries
import mcpi.minecraft as minecraft
import mcpi.block as block
mc = minecraft.Minecraft.create()
# Get player position
pPos = mc.player.getTilePos()
# Change block
print "Create stone 3x3 cube"
print "Position player on top"
mc.postToChat("Move and have another go.")
You can download this script directly to your Pi using :
