“I’m looking forward to the moment when we can play Minecraft in Minecraft” is probably the most common comment under redstone builds. Fortunately, you won’t have to wait any longer. A group of youtubers has created an in-game computer that enables you to play Minecraft in Minecraft.
A project that took several months
Sammyuri, Uwerta and StackDoubleFlow are a trio of youtubers who together created a playable Minecraft. The former is responsible for creating CHUNGUS and AMOGUS, the GPU and CPU used in the project. Uwerta is the lead programmer, designing the CPU and other components. StackDoubleFlow in turn created a special server that made it possible to play Minecraft (it speeds up the game 10 thousand times). You can see the result of their work below.
If you would like to know the details of the project, for now a short video is available, where the components and program are briefly described. A longer video on the subject is yet to be made, although samyuri shared the secrets of the CPU CHUNGUS 2 before.
Minecraft in Minecraft can be downloaded here. It has been marked as provisional, so depending on when you read this post, you might want to take a look at the description of the first video.
What can you do in Minecraft?
As you can guess, the in-game game has quite limited capabilities. Despite that it offers the basic activities, such as destroying blocks, constructing them (both in the inventory and on the crafting table), or storing up to 10 groups of blocks in crates.
In turn, the world of Minecraft in Minecraft has dimensions of 8x8x8 blocks, with sixteen types of materials. It is possible to build items on three “levels” – wooden, cobblestone and iron. What’s more, fall damage is also present in the game, although our life can also be ended by suffocation (for example, under the weight of falling sand).
Although the project is not visually advanced, it is still incredibly impressive. The community is amazed by both the effect and the work that has been put into this project. There is nothing left to do but wait for the moment when Minecraft players will finally launch Doom. And it may happen sooner than we think.
