A turtle sandbox
Required MinecraftEdu Hosted ModsYou can obtain these mods using the MinecraftEdu Launcher
I plan this to be the forth step of three previous lessons/worlds where the students get the basics
- Hour of Code World for ComputerCraftEdu
- Turtle Canyon - A ComputerCraftEdu Sandbox
- Turtle Island (ComputerCraftEdu/CustomNPCs for MCEdu 1.7.10)
Usually my students wants to go in a survival PvP world where they can try their new skills in a safe environment. So the basic concept is a city where you can buy ComputerCraft stuff really really cheap but all the cool things (armor, weapons and more) are insane expensive. To be able to get the cool stuff quick you need to program your turtles.
The first time I tested this map too many students took as many beginner's turtles as possible, tun just outside the town and started to collect blocks and ore. So I've tried to prevent this by put a border block in front of the house where you get the beginner's turtles (up to the teacher to decide if students should have them) and also tried to block 100 blocks (or more) outside the city so the students actually move a bit.
All you need you can get in the city, if you test the example turtles you'll get lots of help and may reach to new and higher places. PvP is optional, couldn't arrange it would be nonPvP inside the city so maybe better to chose from teacher's menu. Fire is not allowed but in the airship there's a teleport where you can get to the nether, but the teacher has to make that station visible.
