We've released version 0.1.2 which features:

  • ADDED - Minecraft region files (*.mca) can now be opened.
  • ADDED - file dialogue browse mode.
  • ADDED - text input now scrolls file dialogue to closest matching file.
  • ADDED - Can select files with UP / DOWN arrow keys.
  • CHANGED - Load renamed to Open.

Full change list

To open a Minecraft level browse to the region folder and open any .mca file. This will load all .mca files. Extremely big levels may crash Avoyd, particularily on 32bit systems as we do not currently stream the region files.

The Minecraft import was some time in coming, as we wanted to make our importer permissively open source, lightweight and in C for maximum usability. You can check out enkiMI on Github.

We'd like to credit a number of people for their work which helped us create the Minecraft importer library, either for their code or models we used in testing.
