There's been a huge surge in popularity of challenges and silly game modifications recently. Not just in Minecraft, but in other games as well. Special runs, randomized textures, breaking the rules of games completely; you name it, someone has done it.
Randomized Minecraft is not a new idea. People have done it before, people will do it again. However, you now have a way to do it yourself:
With "I.T.E.M.S.", the Item, Texture, (and) ETC. Minecraft Scrambler, you can do this:
Now, you can scramble any resource pack you so desire, turning it into a living nightmare mish-mash of garbage - or something beautiful, with the right amount of madness.
Because this only affects the resource pack, all items maintain their actual functionalities. However, they can be renamed and retextured, meaning that you'll have to discover for yourself what each and every item has become. It's a strange, confusing puzzle. And it can be absolutely hilarious sometimes.
The results are rather customize-able. ITEMS groups items and blocks by type and uses a "pool" to either scramble groups together or shuffle groups only among themselves.
The programming language "Python" was used to develop this program. If you wish to use this, please install it from https://www.python.org.
Preview of program appearance (sparse, but functional):
Current Features (v0.2.1):
- Shuffle blocks, items, and item names
- Numerous categories of each to scramble, individually or together, or both!
- Should be compatible with most resource packs
- Fixed animation scrambling not working
- Fixed 'scrambled eggs' not working
- ITEMS.py will work in multiple possible spots in resource pack folders
- Redid text/setup questionnaire
- Bunch of code made better and cooler and not terrible
- readme.txt changed
- Shuffle paintings of the same size
- Shuffle sounds
- Shuffle particles
- Scramble block names
- Scramble entity textures (this will not end well)
- (there is a readme in the zip that also explains the following)
First, be sure you have correctly installed the Python programming language from python.org.
1. Unzip your desired resource pack in the resourcepacks folder of your .minecraft folder.
2. Unzip I T E M S.zip, and place the file "I T E M S.py" into the resource pack.
3. Run the program and choose your settings.
4. Open minecraft, select the unzipped resource pack, and you're done!
If you encounter any particularly bad problems, please copy paste the error log "outlog.txt" that generates into a post below, and describe the problem, if you can. (it helps a lot to link whichever resource pack you were trying to scramble.)
