Advanced Minecraft: Resources and Mods

Minecraft is a fun game to play, and this means it is even more fun to hack. Thanks to open source tools that allow us to access the underlying game resources, there is no limit on changes you can make to the appearance, shape, or logic of things in the game. Adding to and editing a game’s files requires an understanding of all the different parts and how they fit together, and this knowledge applies to all types of programs.

Grades 3-5 & 6-8

Prior Minecraft Java edition experience required.
