Welcome to part three of the RPS guide to learning how to code in Minecraft. If youve been following the tutorials so far, you should have a decent grasp of the basics of coding how to put programs together and what several different commands do.
Welcome to the fourth, and final, coding tutorial for ComputerCraft! If youve been following the series, youll now know how to navigate the operating system, save and load programs, use monitors, use disk drives, and send turtles scurrying around to do your bidding.
Duncan Geere is going to be taking class this morning, students. If you missed any notes for this lesson, you canfind them here. Please open you Minecrafts to page 57.
Today, were going to make a passworded door, an alarm that notifies you when intruders enter your base, and a digital clock for your base. Basically, youll be the most punctual hermit on the block.

With their help, well be automating some of the duller functions of the game chopping down trees and mining a dropshaft.

Welcome back! When I left you last week, youd built a computer, explored the filesystem and written your first program. That was easy, so its time to climb the next rung on the difficulty ladder.

Actually this isnt written by someone called Mavis, but instead by RPS chum and former Wired stafferDuncan Geere, who you may remember from hisSim City 2000 retrospective. In this first of four parts, he takes you through the ropes of basic coding via the modern marvel that is Minecraft. Everythings done in game, and it all begins by punching a tree. Take it away, Duncan.
