Pi-Land in Minecraft – Map Download

Just over a week ago I posted about Pi-Island, a Raspberry Pi made in Minecraft with the main (not all) components on a pi. Mainly aimed at KS2/3 pupils to introduce the pi from a component/make up point of view and to promote discussion and interest in the Raspberry Pi.

After a few comments and a bit of feedback, here is the map ready to download. Yes, it’s for Pocket Edition but Craig Richardson (@CraigArgh) assures me the map can be imported into Minecraft Pi too, I was VERY pleased to hear this. Also, Adam Clarke (@thecommonpeople) also said we could wire it up to pocketmine.net and create a PHP mod (I’ll leave that one to him, I can’t wait to see it!)

The map can be put on any iOS device running Minecraft Pocket Edition, you will need to download the free program iFunBox (Windows), and connect your device(s) via the cable. Firstly, open iFunBox and click iFunBox Classic:

iFunBox Classic

Then, put the unzipped Pisland folder in the minecraftWorlds folder (User Applications>MinecraftPE>Documents>games>com.mojang>minecraftWorlds):
minecraftWorlds Folder

Disconnect the device, load up Minecraft and open the island map to take a tour around a Raspberry Pi in Minecraft!

Welcome to Pi-Land

I hope you like it, and look forward to seeing what else you do with it, feel free to comment below or tweet me at @MrAHeard

As always, enjoy!
