Installing and Renaming Worlds
When playing MCPI it can be a pain to tell which world is which as they are all called ‘world‘. Luckily, thanks to ‘edweed00‘ and also partly me, we have come up with a way to change your world’s name!
- Open up ‘File Manager‘ and click ‘View‘. Then tick the box that says ‘Show Hidden‘.
- Tons of folders will now appear in your user dictionary (Default is ‘pi‘). One will be called ‘.minecraft‘, open it.
- Open the ‘games‘ dictionary, then the ‘com.mojang‘ dictionary and finally the ‘minecraftWorlds‘ dictionary.
- In here will be several folders. They will be named ‘world‘, ‘world-‘, ‘world–‘ etc. To rename the world, simply just right-click on one of these folders and click ‘Rename‘. Then just type what you want the world to be named!
We have also found a way to install custom maps! To get a custom map, head to the MCPE: Maps section of the Minecraft Forums. Although the maps are built for Minecraft: Pocket Edition, most of them should work on MCPI as the Pi Edition is a port of the Pocket Edition. I have put a map in the MCPI DropBox if you want to download it from there. It is a remake of the popular game, Slender (Made by A00000A – Official Thread)
- Download a MC:PE or MCPI map
- If it comes in a .zip file, extract it and move it to a USB Storage Device.
- Plug the USB Storage Device into your Raspberry Pi and move the extracted folder into the /.minecraft/games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds dicitonary.
- Load up MCPI and double-click on the new world!
