Yellow Brick Road

Create a path of flowers and a yellow brick road wherever you walk.

1 - Open Minecraft

In this project we are going to learn how to create a program Minecraft that will leave a trail of flowers or a yellow brick road behind you wherever you walk in the world.

First, open Minecraft Education Edition, login, create a new world and open the Code Builder.

2 - Flower trail

Add the following code to leave a trail of flowers behind you, wherever you walk in the Minecraft world.

player.onTravelled(WALK, function () {, pos(0, 0, 0))

As we are using the position 0 0 0, the flowers get created wherever you are. The on player [walk] block triggers whatever code you put inside it when the player walks.

3 - Different types of flowers

Next update your code as follows to place different types of flowers wherever you walk.

player.onTravelled(WALK, function () {, pos(0, 0, 0)), pos(0, 0, 0)), pos(0, 0, 0))

4 - On fly

You may have noticed the on player [walk] block can be changed to trigger the code inside it for different things the player can do.

Change the block so that it triggers on player [fly] and then run your code.

player.onTravelled(FLY, function () {, pos(0, 0, 0)), pos(0, 0, 0)), pos(0, 0, 0))

To make your player fly, press the space bar twice and then use the w or s keys to move around.

5 - Walk and place gold

Add the following new code to place a gold block wherever your player walks.

player.onTravelled(WALK, function () {, pos(0, 0, 0))

Run your code and make your player walk around. Notice that gold blocks get placed on top of the ground, wherever you walk.
