Hack the Minecraft code and dig into your own pixelated reality. Mod-ify the game to fit your vision, learning the basics of coding in Java as you create blocks, items and creatures of your own design. Add objects to craft new recipes and change variables to customize your gameplay. Use GIMP to give your mod realistic color and shape, then code it into digital reality with Eclipse, an industry standard in Java programming. After testing and debugging, show off your custom mod in an end-of-session showcase.
