How to import a Minecraft map into Avoyd

  • Download and install Avoyd
  • Avoyd can load your own maps (stored in %appdata%\.minecraft\saves\ ), or download and save the Minecraft map to disk (extracting it if it is a zip file).
  • In Avoyd, open to the Voxel Editor an go to the menu File > Import > Minecraft Map (*.mca)... and select the region file directory (containing .mca files) and ‘Open’ to import it..
  • If you have 'The Nether' or 'The End' dimensions as well as the normal 'The Overworld’, a pop-up will enable you to choose which dimension to import.

How to explore a map in Avoyd

  • Lock the camera to the horizontal plane for Minecraft maps: select menu Camera > Align To Axes. Select 'y' and set the Axis Preference to '0.80' or above.
  • To move around:
  • set the camera to "Movement" mode: press the Tab key or hold down the mouse right button
  • Move the mouse to look around
  • Press W to move forward
  • More about camera controls in the voxel editor’s help menu: Help > Tutorial > Cameras and Help > Controls Documentation > Camera Controls

    Tips and tricks

    • Once imported, save the Minecraft map as an Avoyd world file. This will enable you to open it faster and use it as a paste brush.
    • Tune the Graphics properties under Settings > Graphics. Increasing the 'LOD change distance' improves detail in the distance but reduces performance.
    • Learn the basics of editing in Avoyd, follow the step by step tutorial under menu Help > Tutorial
    • All controls and keyboard shortcuts are listed in menu Help > Controls
    • Enable tooltips from menu View > Show Tooltips
    • Check the size of the world and add notes from menu View > World Properties
    • Light or Dark mode UI, adjust font size etc. in menu Settings > Display
