Frequently Asked Questions

What is Minecraft Pi?

It’s a fork (modification) of an old version of Minecraft Pocket Edition (Alpha v0.6.1), ported to the Raspberry Pi.

What extra features does MCPI have?

Minecraft: Pi Edition comes with a built-in scripting API, with clients in multiple languages: Python (mcpi, Picraft), JavaScript, Java and many more.

Minecraft: Pi Edition is related to Minecraft: Pocket Edition, because the first is a “modified” and ported version of the second one, but they are not the same. For example, MCPI by default doesn’t have the Survival mode enabled.
