What is it ?
- Visualmodder allows you to create programs for Minecraft by assembling blocks together. The focus is on novice programmers who want to get fast results and have fun.
- Visualmodder has been developed for teaching programming to children.
- Visualmodder is a plugin for the minecraft servers (Spigot).
Players can connect to server with the normal Minecraft program. (PC Version)
- This plugin is an easy alternative to “Minecraft Education Edition” or “Tynker” to learn programming.
The plugin has been developed for the learn to code sessions held in Switzerland and seen its great success we decided to make it available at no cost for players and teachers.
Did you want to change the game behaviour, add powerful commands and generate new amazing structures but you are missing either the time or the skills to do it?
Visualmodder lets you create programs in a very intuitive way even if you have never written a program before.
TEACH KIDS TO CODE
In 2015 we started the first sessions teaching programming with Minecraft. The success was overwhelming and we are now running regular courses with it.
There are other “learn to program with minecraft” platforms (E. g. Minecraft Education Edition, Tynker) but those don’t have the simplicity of Visualmodder. Our plugin is a simple install with no strings attached.
1: EDIT THE PROGRAM
The Visual Editor is very intuitive. Code blocks are assembled like in a puzzle.
The editor used by Visualmodder is an extension of the Blockly Editor provided by Google. For more information:
The transfer of the program to the Minecraft server is done automatically. The user has just to indicate the player name in the visual editor.
2: RUN THE PROGRAM
In order to run the program the player has to login in the minecraft server and call using the “/” character the command “vm” followed by the name chosen for the command.
example: /vm mycommand
If the player is unhappy with the results it is possible to undo the command by typing: /vmu
