Useful minecraft scripts (in python)
Purpose: carve out a 3 dimensional box of air, centered on your current location. For example if you are underground, run:
/py aircube3 50 3 50
...to create a long, wide basement.
from mine import * from sys import argv mc = Minecraft() mc.postToChat ("Placing a cube of air just for you...") playerPos = mc.player.getPos() xsize = int (argv); ysize = int (argv); zsize = int (argv); xhsize = int(xsize/2); yhsize = int(ysize/2); zhsize = int(zsize/2); for i in range(xsize): for j in range (ysize): for k in range (zsize): mc.setBlock(playerPos.x +i - xhsize, playerPos.y +j - yhsize , playerPos.z +k - zhsize, block.AIR)
Put lights all over the place, so you can see what's going on. Useful in caves.
(Alternative technique is to use a night vision potion, but I still prefer this little script)
from mine import * mc = Minecraft() mc.postToChat("Placing lights...") playerPos = mc.player.getPos() s = 10 space = 4 x0 = playerPos.x - (s*space/2) y0 = playerPos.y - (s*space/2) z0 = playerPos.z - (s*space/2) for x in range(s): for y in range(s): for z in range(s): h = mc.getBlock(x*space+x0, y*space+y0, z*space + z0) if (h != block.AIR.id): mc.setBlock(x*space+x0, y*space+y0, z*space + z0, block.GLOWSTONE_BLOCK)
