Here is my plan....

The map generator (Tectonicus) can currently render 8 chunks every 20 seconds.
Each chunk is 16 by 16 by 128. Thats 32,768 blocks.
The World consists of 133,243 chunks. (Thats 4,366,106,624 blocks)
So, at the current rate, the map is estimated to be done in 3.8554108796296296 (roughly 4) days.

During those 4 days I will learn java. Since its object oriented like Actionscript 3, it hopefully wont be that hard to learn. Ill practice it and try to make a functioning mod.

After the map is finished, I will plan the final layout of the world. Work a few weeks on some mods and some final touches, and then we can get out of phase 2 and proceed to phase 3.


  1. Can't wait, mate! Maybe we can make some Minecraft videos once you're done with everything. :)

  2. Good luck, you got your work cut out for you

  3. good luck man! maybe you can post some of the more important stuff you learned in java in a future post? just a suggesttion

  4. Java is different from Actionscript, but I think as long as you get over the fact that types are explicitly defined and sometimes need to be cast, you should be fine.
