A few months ago Minecraft Pi Edition was regarded as the worst version in existence. It’s only redeeming quality, it’s modding API.
However through the hard work and dedication of a few developers, it’s grown to be something much more.
Minecraft Pi Edition was released in 2013 as a stripped down version of the pocket edition (version for phones) and even then it was a bad version due to its characteristic lack of survival mode.
A few people tried to mod it, to little success. However a in 2020 a new project started, called mcpil which allowed Minecraft pi to really take off!
Minecraft Pi Launcher or MCPIL for short is the project that allowed Minecraft pi to enter its renaissance. It supports full mod loading, a custom modding API, survival mode, fancy graphics, and so much more!
By default Minecraft Pi has a mod API but it takes quite a while to setup, mcpil allows you to launch certain mods when you join a world, and automatically use them.
MCPIL also exposes the mcpi-docker API which allows support for survival mode. It even includes hostile mobs which the original version did not support.
Even beyond this, mcpi-docker supports crafting and farming which are also accessible through MCPIL.
There’s so much more that MCPIL and mcpi-docker can do that I just don’t have time to mention in this short post.
