And Now For Something Completely Different

Things have been quiet on the blog last week. I was enjoying a few days off and actually found a new and exciting pastime: ComputerCraft. ComputerCraft is a modification for the highly popular game Minecraft and it allows you to craft and program computers and robots called turtles in-game. Yeah, this is totally unrelated to RPGs, but I am currently so excited about ComputerCraft that I decided to post about it here. I hope you can forgive me.

The programs are written in LUA, a pretty easy to learn scripting language. I haven’t done any programming in a while, but I found it pretty easy to write some simple programs in ComputerCraft. Especially programming the various turtles is a lot of fun. I always found mining in Minecraft pretty boring, but now I can just order a mining turtle to do the work for me. If my interest in ComputerCraft doesn’t wane pretty quickly, I might actually start a ComputerCraft blog and post my programs there. Please let me know in the comments if you are interested in something like that. And now back to our regular program…

P.S.: The trailer above was created for the launch of CC1.3. At the time of this writing CC1.55 is available.
