Installing and Renaming Worlds

minecraftpi

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!

  1. Open up ‘File Manager‘ and click ‘View‘. Then tick the box that says ‘Show Hidden‘.
  2. Tons of folders will now appear in your user dictionary (Default is ‘pi‘). One will be called ‘.minecraft‘, open it.
  3. Open the ‘games‘ dictionary, then the ‘com.mojang‘ dictionary and finally the ‘minecraftWorlds‘ dictionary.
  4. 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 A00000AOfficial Thread)

  1. Download a MC:PE or MCPI map
  2. If it comes in a .zip file, extract it and move it to a USB Storage Device.
  3. Plug the USB Storage Device into your Raspberry Pi and move the extracted folder into the /.minecraft/games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds dicitonary.
  4. Load up MCPI and double-click on the new world!
