Introduction


I have put together a collection of links for those people that need helping on map making tools, banners, skins, and etc. This is the list that works ONLY for Mac/Linux! Visit my Channel for the Windows Version!

Website Links


1) MCEdit [Cross-Platform]: The Greatest Editing Program for Minecraft. This program allows for over the top editing. Have you ever wanted to move things around or import another build into your specific world, well now you can. You can use filters found all over the web, in which they allow you to do very unique and custom things in Minecraft, such as colored text, enlarge objects, flip, and etc.

2) WorldPainter [Cross-Platform]: WorldPainter is an interactive map generator for Minecraft. It allows you to "paint" landscapes using similar tools as a regular paint program. Sculpt and mould the terrain, paint materials, trees, snow and ice, etc. onto it, and much more. In other words, its a custom terrain generator.

3) MCDungeon [Cross-Platform]: This program which allows you to generate replace preexisting dungeons in your Minecraft world with better looking land and random loot chests.

4) Revise [Cross-Platform]: This program is an exterior editing program for the books in Minecraft. It was made for signed books, but unsigned will work, too. It can also convert back and forth between the two versions, signed and unsigned. It also allows for more options while editing books. The two key options are title formatting and author changing. However, it also can edit many other aspects of the book item.

5a) ImageToMap [Linux]: The name speaks for itself. Its a program that allows any image uploaded turned into a map that can be used in your Minecraft world.

5b) MC Map Item Tool [Website]: This is an alternative website that has the same function as ImageToMap, but uses an HTML format.

6) NBTExplorer [Mac]: NBTExplorer is a low-level graphical NBT data editor originally based on NBTedit. The key difference is NBTExplorer's full support for Minecraft .mcr/.mca region files, a directory-tree interface for easily exploring multiple worlds, and support for the latest NBT standard. NBTExplorer is built on top of Substrate.

12) ResoursePack Workbench [Cross-Platform]: ResourcePack Workbench, or RPW, is a tool to make creation of Resource Packs easier. It is a java application, just like Minecraft, so it should run everywhere - Windows, Linux, Mac. It lets you easilly combine packs, create new ones, edit texts and images etc (with the help with external editors, or for texts, the built-in one). RPW comes with a Project system, so you can work on more packs at once, and keep them in separate folders.
