Game Design: Minecraft Mini-Games with CAD and WorldEdit (Ages 8 - 14)

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Ever wonder how the big Minecraft multiplayer servers and mini-games are designed?

Collaboration and creative build skills are important, but server designers also use plugins like WorldEdit to craft massive, detailed builds. WorldEdit is an in-game map editor that server and mini-game designers use to create detailed, epic maps.

Game Design with WorldEdit takes young designers on MODA’s creative design server to learn the skills necessary to craft on a larger scale! Campers will work in design teams and use the design process to create a mini-game that they will test on other teams at the end of camp.

Campers will also have the opportunity to learn to use Tinkercad and MCEdit to add additional structures their maps. Experienced MODAcrafters will be given additional challenges including command blocks for game design.

This camp is recommended for Minecrafters with experience designing in the computer edition.

Campers will:

  • Learn and strengthen their use of the Design Process
  • Practice user-centered design
  • Innovate on current Minecraft trends
  • Practice sketching designs and rendering them digitally
  • Script code in the Minecraft command line
  • Advance their CAD skills on multiple platforms
  • Practice applying knowledge when learning new software

Enrolled in this camp before? No problem! We'll pick up where you left off so your camper can keep making and learning.

MODA Sustainers enjoy member pricing on all camps for kids beginning at the $96 Sustainer level and above.
