Raspbian Jessie, NOOBS and Raspberry Pi 3!

Jpeg

Today I got my RPi 3 and was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to see what was new. I inserted a microSD card with NOOBS on it. Then Raspbian Jessie acually worked and booted. It was slow at first but booted. I was logged in automaticly as pi and when Jessie’s interface loaded I was sooooo excited! LibreOffice! Minecraft! Internet! Sonic Pi! Much More!

To set up Raspbian Jessie in the cool way, open up the Terminal and type

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install synaptic

sudo apt-get install geany

sudo apt-get install libvte9

Voila! You just installed some software. Synaptic is in the preferences menu, Geany in the Programming and libvte9 is a good package for the geany terminal tab if it isn’t in geany’s message window. It doesn’t always appear, but keep the package.

Go to programming, click Sonic Pi and type ‘mc_message”Hello World of Minecraft Pi Edition”‘. Then launch up Minecraft Pi, in the Games section and create a new world. Then click TAB on the keyboard.  Then on Sonic Pi, press Run. Click on the open tab Minecraft and you will see your message.

 

UPDATED:

Raspbian Jessie’s latest version has geany pre-installed

 

Minecraft Pi Edition

Hello!

I will show you how to get Minecraft Pi installed on a Raspi.

Note: If you have Raspbian Jessie, Minecraft is already installed.

For Raspbian Wheezy:

1. Open Dillo

2. Visit pi.minecraft.net, click the link and choose where to extract the files. Once done, go to the mcpi folder and click on minecraft-pi and click execute. Click start game, followed by create new.

Move with the WSAD keys and jump with space. Left click to mine/attack. Use the scroll wheel (or the numbers) to select the items in the hotbar. E will load the inventory and ESC will load the pause menu.

Minecraft-pi can also be programmed. Posts about programming Minecraft Pi in the future.

Enjoy!

MCPE Sky-Glide!

I guess that is what it is called, anyway.

Step 1:

Build a high tower out of any block. Go up to any height you want, I am going for the max (128 blocks).

Step 2.

Crouch and jump. Then click on the up button

Step 3. Move away from the tower of blocks. You can now glide around. Simply press on down to go down and go down to land to land on the ground. Press crouch to stop crouching.

Enjoy!

Coloured text in MCPE 0.11.0+

Now it is possible to write text – world names, seeds, Chat and signs, not to forget renaming on anvils in colour!

WARNING: NEVER TYPE IN §§, THIS WILL MAKE ALL TEXT INVISIBLE

Steps:
If using android launch up Minecraft PE and then once got to a typing interface, (eg sign) and use the keyboard

Go to ?123 and click ~[<. Then press hard on ¶. The § icon will apear. Select it.

The code is as follows
§1 – Dark Blue
§2 – Green
§3 – Turquoise
§4 – Red
§5 – Purple
§6 – Yellow
§7 – Light grey
§8 – Dark Grey
§9 – A darker blue (I guess, anyway)
§0 – Black

There are more codes like §(a letter) so experiment with the colours and patterns!

On iOS click hard on & and select §. The code is the same as android so you can also experiment (I got the spelling correct this time)!

Drop a like if you enjoyed!

Enjoy!
