Course Details

Day 1: Creation of the world of Minecraft. Study the locations and features of each world. Creating a game character. Moving him around the level. Learning inventory and abilities. Learn how to mine resources and use them to create other objects.


Day 2: Choosing the right location, site and positions to build a shelter. Building walls, rooms with foundations and ceilings. What to do if you need to get across a water obstacle? The answer is simple - build a bridge. That' s what we are going to do in this lesson. We'll choose a suitable location, gather the necessary resources and exercise engineering skills in the construction.


Day 3: Let's start working with the program "Roblox studio". We'll figure out how to create a project, camera movement. Let's start creating the world. Let's set up trees and work with the properties of the object. Let's dive into the world of "coding" and start writing code. Take a look at some popular commands for program creation. Write code for the platform.


Day 4: We'll program the disappearing trap, but in a way that you won't fall in it. Based on that, we build more complex and challenging obstacles. With simple primitives we learn how to make our own objects and implement them into the game world. Let's work with the terrain. Create an island and use textures to make it look realistic.


Day 5: The first thing we see when we start the game is, of course, the menu. Let's create a game menu and tips to make it easier to navigate. Also, every game has a goal of some kind. We will learn how to collect coins and score points. We introduce the already created location and play.
