From Stuff About Code:
Myself and David Whale (my co-author on Adventures in Minecraft) were asked if we would do a talk on “Hacking Minecraft” at the Raspberry Pi 3rd Birthday Party. I wanted to do something fun to show you how you can do amazing things in Minecraft using the Pi API.
After coding the Solar System in Minecraft I had the idea of creating the Death Star which would be able to ‘fire’ at the planets and destroy them. I ended up coding an animation of the Death Star destroying Alderaan right up to Luke flying down the trench and successfully bombing the exhaust port with a block of TNT.
