This is my first post, and I'm not really a Minecraft player anymore (I used to play the computer beta, and haven't had the Pocket Edition for more than 24 hours), so hopefully the following post is considered useful- based on the info I gained from browsing these forums, it looks like it might be, I hold high hopes
Anyways, to get right to it: This is a modification of a few of Minecraft - Pocket Edition's functions (particularly those responsible for handling touch events) that allows for an auto-mine-like functionality; that is, when three fingers are touched to the screen, the touches (including those being used to move the player and to mine) are preserved.
So, if a player walks forward while mining (in such a way that a straight tunnel would be formed), and then touches a third finger to the screen, the player will keep moving forward and mining, even after the fingers are removed from the screen. This can be used to clear out large areas (particularly underground, when searching for precious materials) without the player having to sit there with two fingers glued to their device.
You can take a look for yourself here (the mod is first visible at around 3:10)-
(Sorry that I had to use a camera instead of a screen recorder; wanted to show how the touches came into play!)
As far as mods go, I don't think this is particularly useful (although again, I don't play much; that's great if a person or two here thinks it's good!). However, it's evidence that it's possible to get code-based mods (as opposed to texture or hex edits) into the Pocket Edition- if this seems promising, I'll work on releasing some code-based mods, along with a technical tutorial on how to create them for yourself.
If you want to try this mod out for yourself, add the following Cydia repository (yes, a jailbreak is very much required!)- http://brycepauken.com/repo/
I haven't tested this for more than a few minutes, remember that it's more of a proof-of-concept than anything else!
Idk if this is remotely possible but I was thinking it would be cool for a portal mod. Not to the nether but to the world you played before the one you are playing. So I could use up a whole world and then make a portal to the next world on my device. I realize people would have to have to download both maps and the mod, but I think it would be awesome. Let me know what you guys think
