Build a custom Minecraft controller with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

By Dexter Industries on hackster.io

In this project we’re going to show you how to build a custom Minecraft Controller. With some parts, the Raspberry Pi, and the GrovePi+, we will make a custom controller that automates some tasks and makes it easier and faster to build, destroy, and fly inMinecraft.

fYou can use the programming language Python to write custom programs that control the Minecraft world, build things with blocks, move your player around, and do some other tasks.

The MagPi recently wrote a great introduction to Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi here.

In this project, we wanted to automate three tasks:

  • Building Big Blocks (blocks that are 5 x 5 x 5).
  • Destroying Big Blocks: laying waste to areas that are 5 x 5 x 5 with the push of a button.
  • Flying: we wanted to be able to zoom around our world in fast, and move really fast when we fly.

In order to make our custom controller, we are going to use the GrovePi+ as our controller. We will use the Python language to read the buttons and joystick on our controller. And the same program will read things like the position of Steve and place things like blocks. Finally we’ll build and decorate a nice control box for the project.
