Beautiful mod, thanks! Now I am spending more time than I planned.
I am trying to teach my kid programming using MCPIPY (Python interface to Minecraft Pi) using the Raspberry Jam mod. It allows me to connect to a local desktop minecraft session and interactively create objects (and do other things). Programatically I want to build a road system, but am having challenges with orientating some of the blocks. Ultimately in Python, when I execute the following, the orientation is only correct for the first block. For example, if I am trying to set the curb on the right side of the roadway, the first block at pos.x-2, pos.y-1, pos.z is the correct orientation (I think 3 is south), and the rest are the opposite orientation. (Road.Curb.Block == 240)
First of all, I think it is amazing that you have started to teach your kid programming. The future will be based on it and I believe everybody should should have at least basic knowledge of it. It's a shame that there aren't very many schools offering it before College/University.
I have looked into the bug you are experiencing and I have fixed it for the next release. The problem was in my own "setState" method where I failed to notice which way blocks were defaulting to. The next release however will be on Minecraft 1.9. This update should be out in a couple of days. I have noticed that the "Raspberry Jam mod" is for Minecraft 1.8 and I have no idea when it will be updated. If you would like, I would be more than happy to release a "Fix Update" for Minecraft 1.8/1.8.9 however it will take some time to complete it. I would only be able to push it out by the end of the weekend / early next week depending on when I can allocate the time.
If 1.9 works for you, great! There will be a release by Wednesday. If not, say the word and I will have a 1.8 fix out as soon as I can do so.
This looks really really nice, any 1.7.10 version as Mentioned before? Cause im still using 1.7.10... But nice mod, seems like a nice for modern building.
Hello there, thank you for the compliment. I have looked into creating a 1.7.10 version and I am sorry to say that it will not be happening. It just creates too much work. I would have to remodel every block and item in JAVA instead of the new JSON file format. I may revisit in the future if 1.7.10 is still relevant, but for now the answer is no, I'm sorry.
