Zombie Siege Proof Villager Compound and Iron Farm

Minecraft Farm

This is zombie-siege-proof villager compound and iron farm. The crops here are potatoes, which provide both food for villagers to breed and items to trade for mass quantities of emeralds. Carrots would work well too, but I recommend against wheat since the seeds can wind up clogging villager inventories. Lighting of the fields is provided via jack-o-lanterns, and irrigation by water pools under the wood blocks under some of the jacks.

Learning Java through Minecraft

Learning Java with Minecraft Modding

Minecraft is an open-world 3D game in which you are able to build and craft virtually anything you can imagine – from tools and houses to functioning computers and pianos. You can expand upon the world’s capabilities by using what the game calls “mods.” These are essentially modifications that you make by adding bits of code to the game.

The programming language Java is used to write the game so you’ll want to become familiar with it in order to alter Minecraft. When you first download the game, your browser runs an applet that’s downloaded to your machine in the form of a .JAR file. This keeps your memory footprint small as you travel through the game by loading and unloading ‘chunks’ as necessary.

Java is a programming language that’s relatively easy to grasp. Once you have a basic understanding of it, you’ll be able to change the look and feel of the game, create brand new structures, and even add new characters to the Minecraft universe. As your Java skills develop, you’ll be able to create new items, mini-games, and more. You’ll find that Java is a very versatile language and that being able to edit .JSON files will be a valuable skill both in- and out-of game.
